One Schnitzel Short Of A Picnic Basket

EJ grabs the phone from Nicole. As things go silent on the other end, Lucas stares into his phone and wonders what happened.

Ciara plays with her doll. Caroline tells her they are making the place eco-friendly. Max drops something behind the bar. He stomps off, "Let someone else clean it up." Nick joins Stephanie. Chelsea rushes in. We have an uncomfortable moment as Chelsea asks to talk to Nick. Stephanie leaves.

Chelsea says, "I'm sorry I hurt you. I never meant to do that."

Zack's apparition looks up at Nick, "That's exactly the same thing she said to me."

Chelsea goes on, "I thought I was in love with someone else. It didn't work out."

Big Rusty won't let John into his own warehouse. John tosses out a few expletives-deleted, "SOB!" Bo and Hope hear the chain of curse words and ask if there is a problem. Hope tells him they're building a case against him. He tells them to go build it against Phillip, "The little bastard set me up. Hope takes out her official SPD bar of soap and washes John's mouth out.

John asks, "How stupid would I have to be to bring dope into Salem."

"About as stupid as you were when you became Salem's top junkie," says Bo. He tells John he is only concerned about justice. John leaves to do his own investigating.

Bo turns to Hope, "I hope Victor isn't into dealing drugs. DAMN IT! Hope takes out her bar of soap...

Chelsea says she was in love with Daniel. Nick had already figured that out. She says she messed up. She trashed a good relationship and wound up with nothing. "While we're being honest I want you to know something too," says Nick, "I'm still in love with you."

Chelsea says, "You're a really special guy. Masochistic, but special. Do you think it's possible to stay friends?"

EJ tells Nicole to put her phone away. "Or what," asks Nicole.

"Or it won't be the only thing I break into a million pieces," he threatens.

Nicole pouts, "You don't trust me?"

"I don't trust you."

Lucas tells Rolf to take a message if Nicole calls again, "She's insane. She called and said she had something important to tell me and then hung up."

"I agree," says Rolf, "Zhe iss one schnitzel short of a picnic basket."

Unfortunately, Lucas picnic basket is empty. He sits at his computer and searches for information on ankle monitors. Chloe arrives and tells him she's worried about him.

Lucas gets defensive and cynical. Sorry for the redundancy. He brings up Brady and everything Chloe has done to him. Chloe says, "I didn't make Brady into a drug addict. My whining did." Lucas reminds her that he knows what it is to have troubles and be an addict; his addiction was booze. Chloe says she didn't come to be judgmental. She came to do nice things.

Phillip walks into the room, "You sure about that Chloe?"

Kayla and Patch are in the hospital. Kayla wants to keep L'il Joe in their room when they bring him home. They tell Maxine they're there to see him. Ominous Maxine says, "Before you do, I have some news." Dumb-da-dumb-dumb.

Chelsea says she misses hanging out with Nick. He's one of the best people she knows. Nick says, "As far as being friends goes, I can't do that."

Chelsea asks, "You're not even gonna try?"

Nick says, "I'm moving on. You should too. Preferably, to another town." He goes over to Stephanie. Max comes back in. Nick and Stephanie talk about what's going on with him. "He's just wound up a little too tight," says Stephanie.

"Tightly wound, yes," says Nick, "Tightly wrapped, no."

EJ asks, "What do you want me to do that will keep you quiet?"

Not-too-subtle Nicole says, "Well... There is one thing, but I'm not sure I will be quiet. You are no longer married to Sami Brady, and unless you want that info to go tabloid, I suggest you start being rather generous with me, counselor,"

Bo and Hope come to see Victor. They want to ask him a few questions about John Black. They tell him John thinks he and Phillip planted the cocaine on his ship. They also remind him he has a past of trafficking cocaine. Victor reminds them he was never formally charged with that, "John got greedy. He wanted control of the docks so he could peddle his contraband without getting caught. I have nothing to hide." He asks them to stay and chat but they leave.

Phillip walks over to Lucas and they hug each other. A guy hug. Before things can get started, Phillip gets a call. Victor says they need to talk now. Phillip goes into the hallway.

Victor says, "The Salem cops were just here sniffing around about the cocaine on John's ship."

"Good," says Phillip, "If they're on the case, we'll never get caught." They argue about who is going to handle this. "I told you," says Phillip, "I'll handle it."

John comes in, "Handle what? What the hell are you doing in my house?"

Phillip says into his phone, "I'm going to have to call you back."

Kayla blithers and asks Maxine what's wrong. After setting up the faux-drama, Maxine says, "L'il Joe is being taken off the ventilator tomorrow." After throwing that scare into them, Maxine is lucky Kayla doesn't fix it so she has to be put on one.

Roman comes in to talk to Max about what came down between John and him at the pier. The fact is, pretty much nothing came down between John and Max at the pier, or Roman would be talking to Max about the situation in the hospital.

Caroline thanks the crowd for coming and being so generous in helping the pub turn green, "I have someone special to introduce, the manager of the green Brady pub, MAX BRADY!" Applause.

John comments on Lucas' little party, "I invited you into my house. Do you show your gratitude by contaminating my house with these unsavory people? You just might have to go back to prison."

"You might be there waiting for me." Lucas gets fifteen yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

"I was framed," screams John, "Kick these misfits to the curb."

EJ doesn't take kindly to being blackmailed. Nicole says she was just kidding. She thinks they could have fun together. He asks if this is how Nicole treats her friends. He thinks she really doesn't want to do this but is insecure, "It's easy to hide emotion behind booze or blackmail."

"You think you know me so well," says Nicole.

EJ asks, "Am I wrong?"

"I can be a caring person," she says.

"I'm not stopping you."

"I'm sorry," says Nicole, "I could use someone to talk to." She runs off EJ tells her to wait.

Max thanks everyone who helped. Suddenly it seems, making the pub eco friendly was a dream OMB had years ago. Max gets emotional and says he can't go on. Bo takes over and continues to spew the object lesson for us little kiddies in the audience who, without the wisdom and guidance of DOOL, would be out there wrecking oil tankers in protected wildlife areas. Bo says OMB is looking down on them and is proud of what they have accomplished. He toasts Pop.

Lucas says nobody is kicking anybody out. John claims innocence and tells them Sami believes him. Oh, that'll prove his innocence. Phillip and Chloe leave.

John snorts, "I don't want them back here. They are not welcome in my home."

Kayla and Patch join the crowd at the pub as Bo rambles about being green. It's a very effective speech. The audience turns green. He makes another toast to OMB. Some official steps up and presents Caroline with a certificate. Roman chimes in. He thanks everyone. He takes the green lecture way over the top and makes yet another toast to OMB. By this time, the people gathered there are so drunk, they don't give a flip whether the pub is green or chartreuse.

Caroline goes over to the bar and cuts the ribbon to signify the official opening of the green pub. The official comes over to her, rips the certificate from her and strips the pub of its green rating. It seems the ribbon was actually made of plastic.

Kayla tells Stephanie about L'il Joe's miraculous recovery. She asks where Max is. Stephanie dunno. Nick comes up and says he's leaving to look for him.

Chelsea wanders aimlessly. Hope intercepts her, "Are you OK?"

"Besides ruining my life," she asks, "I'm just as hateful and selfish as I ever have been."

"You left out 'repulsive,'" says Hope.

Nick finds Max at the docks, "I thought I would find you here. Everyone was wondering where you went. I just want to say... If you ever need anything... Call someone else." Max says he left because it was hard talking about OMB. The two buddies head back to the pub arm-in-arm. Don't worry. It's a guy kind of arm-in-arm.

Max and Nick come into the pub. Max goes up to Stephanie and apologizes for taking off. She's just glad he's back. Smooches.

Patch has a big announcement. He tells the crowd about taking L'il Joe off the ventilator, "Big Joe Johnson will be breathing on his own!" He thanks everyone for supporting them.

Hope reminds Chelsea she risked her life for Bo, so she isn't selfish. Chelsea says she hurt Nick in the process. Hope tells her everyone makes mistakes in love. Especially Hope. She assures Chelsea she will find a love that works, "Look at your dad and me. We've been together forever and haven't broken up more than a hundred times or so. Oh, yeah, and I forgot, you're not even my kid, but our marriage has been nearly perfect."

Chelsea remains encouraged in spite of everything Hope said.

Chloe comes back to Lucas. She says she wants to be his friend. Lucas don' need no stinkin' friends. Lucas also don' have no stinkin' friends. Chloe says she does need friends. She tired to reach out to Sami but she blew her off. Lucas is cynical, sarcastic and nasty. Sorry for the redundancy. Chloe says she doesn't hate Lucas. She asks if they can be friends.

Victor is on the phone doubling the security at all his ports. Phillip walks in. Victor growls, "Where the hell have you been?"

"Nice to see you too," says Phillip.

Victor snorts, "You want nice – teach kindergarten." He tells Phillip to stay away from John. Phillip refuses and walks out.

Max tells Stephanie he's doing better. She knows he'll tell them what's going on when he's ready.

Robbins runs into Nick. He invites him to his book signing.

Chelsea says she's going over to Gramps house to ask him a favor. She says goodbye to Bo and Hope and turns to leave through the back door.

Bo points to the front door, "The exit is that way."

"Nick is out there," says Chelsea, "I don't want to have a confrontation."

Patch and Kayla chat with Stephanie and Max. Patch pops the question that's been on his and Kayla's minds ever since they had L'il Joe, "Are you ready to do some baby sitting? We gotta start lining up people we can dump the little nuisance on."

Speaking of which, Bo and Hope dump Ciara on Caroline. They decide to see what John is up to.

John finds Big Rusty. He says he needs info. He's willing to pay. He hands rusty a wad-o-cash. Rusty tells him Hollingsworth was hanging out with Phillip. John hands him another wad and Rusty leaves.

Chloe snaps, "It's a simple yes or no. Do you want to be friends?"

Lucas is cynical, sarcastic and nasty. Sorry for the redundancy. "Sure," says Lucas, "Sure let's be friends. It's going to take time to get used to." Lucas says he is suspicious of her motives. Chloe just wants to prove she's a good person.

"So I'm your lab rat," says Lucas.

"More like a guinea pig," says Chloe. Lucas makes her promise she won't hurt Phillip.

"I just hope he won't hurt me," says Chloe.

Phillip is on the phone with Paul trying to calm him down. He tells him to keep his mouth shut and he won't be investigated.

EJ and Nicole come into the room as Phillip leaves. EJ says he didn't mean to be mean to her, "Stop hiding behind..." Nicole stops him. Hot kiss.

Harsh, Prevuze, harsh.

John asks, "How stupid would I have to be to bring dope into Salem."

…just as stupid as the writers. They’ve brought lots of dopes into Salem.

Chelsea says, "You're a really special guy. Masochistic, but special.”

So true, so true.

"Besides ruining my life," she asks, "I'm just as hateful and selfish as I ever have been."

"You left out 'repulsive,'" says Hope.


Prevuze knows true and, once again, proves it!

Lucas is cynical, sarcastic and nasty. Sorry for the redundancy.

Prevuze, not to worry. It can’t be helped because it’s TRUE!

Bulldog, that photo is priceless! Another truly wonderful Prevuze!!! Have a great day!!!

That one was definitely better than the Prevuzism I used.

I just want to say... If you ever need anything... Call someone else.

Hee. Love that. So does this mean MadMax is over now? Oh, I see prevuze II he is not.

Love Nick for saying no to Chelsea. I guess Prevuze didn't forget to add a bitch to his comment to her? No? Oh well.

Isn’t that pretty much how he lives his life? LOLOL

The fact is, pretty much nothing came down between John and Max at the pier, or Roman would be talking to Max about the situation in the hospital.

Ain’t that the truth!

Victor growls, "Where the hell have you been?" "Nice to see you too," says Phillip. Victor snorts, "You want nice – teach kindergarten."

Funny line, but I have a sister and a brother-in-law who are teachers. Obviously the DOOL writers haven’t had to teach in a grade school recently.

Great, GREAT Prevuze today. All the funny pictures have pretty much been mentioned, I'll add Prevuze identification of Shawn as one of the lost Amazon tribes to the list.

So, in about a week the Brady Pub is totally green and even applied for and received a certificate to that effect. Good. Great. Now for GOD'S SAKE quit the preaching already!!! I thought the heavy-handed way they trumpeted Save The Earth Day was bad. But these "green" shows have moved into the realm of cruel & unusual punishment.

Prevuze - Thanks for making it all unbearably....funny!

I believe another headline for the Salem Grind or Salem Inquirer could be, "Childbirth Causes Doctor To Lose All Medical Knowledge"!

Ever since L'il Joe was born Kayla has been reacting to situations as if she'd never even watched medical shows on TV, let alone have a medical degree.

The last straw for me was yesterday's show when she reacted to the monitoring devices going off by gasping in horror, "What does that mean????!!!"; and looking at the monitors like she couldn't even read the BP and heart rate displays!

GIVE ME A BREAK!!

End of rant.

Loved today's post. ;-)

Ugh, what is Brady - a child? How was it anyones fault but his own to pick up the crack pipe. What happened to the smidgen of self responsibility these people possessed.

And since when are Lucas and Brady bff's??

"Good," says Phillip, "If they're on the case, we'll never get caught."
So very, very true. Perhaps they'll even forget about it and move on.

Do you show your gratitude by contaminating my house with these unsavory people?
I laughed so hard at this. John is living with Sami, EJ, Rolf and Lucas. Ha!

Lucas says nobody is kicking anybody out.
Man, giving commands in somebody else's house. Sounds like self-sabotage to meet up with Carmine.


"Besides ruining my life," she asks, "I'm just as hateful and selfish as I ever have been."

Oh lordy, here we go...

Don't worry. It's a guy kind of arm-in-arm.
lol, I wasn't even pondering it until this.

What in the world does Chloe want from Lucas, he seems more standoffish than Sami was. In any case it seems they actually don't have any friends - which makes me lol and sigh out of pity.

MAX ANGRY!! ARGGGGHHH!!!
Is Kate pregnant!? (probably not, but I'd still find it hilarious)

Bulldog, kudos dude! That was PERFECTION!!!

In the "DUHH What did you expect him to say category" we have Chelsea.

I just wanted to smack her up-side her head when I read her sniveling apology to Nick.
"Ohh I'm so sorry, forgive me, I dumped you so I could make a fool out of myself chasing some guy old enough to be my FATHER, then had the nerve to be shocked when he told me he didn't want me."

I love it. Nick's "thanks but no thanks" was so much better than having him welcome her back with open arms. It's about time a guy on this show, grew a set!!

The funniest Prevuism to me today was "without the wisdom and guidance of DOOL, us little kiddies in the audience would be out there wrecking oil tankers in protected wildlife areas." HAHAHAHA!

And how true was "By this time, the people gathered there are so drunk they don't give a flip whether the pub is green or chartreuse." Especially considering they started at breakfast time and are still slogging down the booze.

AND, Hope reminding us their marriage was far from perfect, the brat being proof.

OMG, the suggestions made that Kate is pregnant. She could join Kayla, Hope and Marlena in the grandmothers as mothers club.

Just too many other great Prevuisms to mention. Love all of the pictures, too.

Lucas says nobody is kicking anybody out.

WHO THE HECK DOES HE THINK HE IS?

Roman chimes in. He thanks everyone. He takes the green lecture way over the top and makes yet another toast to OMB.

ANY TIME ROMAN OPENS HIS MOUTH HE IS WAY OVER THE TOP.

I SURE WAS HOPING AVA WAS LEAVING THE SHOW. WISH MARLENA WOULD COME BACK. I LOVE THE BANTERING BETWEEN HER AND JAWN. ALTHOUGH, IT MAY GET BETTER NOW THAT SHE HAS SOME COMPETITION IN AVA.

AFTER READING DEB'S PREVIEWS, I THINK I'LL SLEEP THROUGH ALL NEXT WEEK.

I am merely Grasshopper to Prevuze’s Master Po. Hmmm…since Master Po was blind, maybe I should change that to Master Kan. However, being blind certainly gives Master Po a big advantage. He can’t watch Daze.
