A Bloated Rag Doll

Here is a recap of the episode we missed yesterday, based on a poor audio backup:

Trent and Marlena have words at the Java Café.

Max and Stephanie discuss how to handle Max' sister if they ever find her. Max meets an old friend in Paris who might be able to help him find Melanie. Stephanie is curious about who SHE is. Max and his friend reminisce, especially about the fact he forgot to say goodbye. Stephanie flirts with a guy while Max and his friend talk. She asks the guy about Melanie. He recognizes her and points out a guy who knows her. Max' friend agrees to investigate Melanie. Stephanie talks to the guy the bartender pointed out and finds out he is Melanie's former boyfriend. The guy whines about losing Melanie and tells Stephanie he isn't the type she would want to be with. Stephanie thinks he deserves better than Melanie given the way she has treated him. He warns Stephanie Melanie is big trouble. Max and his old friend, Stephanie and her new friend part company.

Marlena tells EJ he stepped way over the line when he threatened to take Johnny. EJ insists Sami would have done the same thing if she were in his position. She confronts him about bribing the immigration agent. Marlena tells EJ she notified the immigration people and Mr. Burke will soon be out of a job. She vows this isn't over. EJ assures Marlena his days with Sami are numbered. Marlena is skeptical. Whatever his feelings for Sami, EJ know they are not reciprocated and he tells Marlena he is moving on.

EJ and Nicole discuss their relationship. Nicole implies Trent is making her uncomfortable. Nicole says she really likes EJ but can't continue the relationship with him. EJ presses her to give it a chance. Nicole won't as long as Sami is in the picture. Trent catches EJ and Nicole being cozy. After EJ leaves Trent warns Nicole to stay away from him and wants to know why EJ was holding her hand. Nicole denies that and tells Trent to go to hell. Trent tells her she will always crave attention. He wonders if she wants to test whether or not he can still control her. He threatens to reveal her little secret, which turns out to be the fact that they are still married. More threats and Trent asks Nicole to find out what Max is doing in France.

Nick and Trent discuss physics. Trent tries to convince Nick there is more to life than nuclear physics. Trent suggests a going away thing for Professor Fergus and wants Nick to talk to Max about renting the Brady pub. Nick suggests he talk to Caroline.

And now, on to today's boreiffic episode...


Daniel harps on the multitude of people who want to come into Victor's room. Bo harps on the fact that Daniel won't let him see Victor. Daniel harps on the fact that the fool's parade in and out of Victor's room is causing him stress. Bo harps on the fact that maybe Daniel keeping people away is causing the stress. Victor the vegetable comes to and tells Daniel he wants to talk to Bo. Daniel gives Bo two minutes with him and notifies the morgue to prepare for a new arrival.

Outside, Daniel snaps at Kate about being in Victor's room and sending him into cardiac arrest. He wants to know what she said that almost killed him.

Ava wants to celebrate the good fortune that she won't be extradited. John is distant. Ava tries to cheer him up by telling him she'll be around for a while now that the extradition is off. John is more concerned about Paul and Phillip, "Phillip taking that bullet wasn't in the equation."

Ava reassures him, "Phillip is going to be just fine and when he is... we have to find a way to pin everything on him." So much for Ava the redeemed.

Morgan sobs over Phillip's lifeless body. She kisses him, but the prince doesn't come back to life. Morgan pines away, "I think I'm falling in love with you."

Chloe stands at the door to Phillip's room with her set of radar ears, "AHEM!!"

John says he doesn't want Ava worrying about anything, "I still have an ace up my sleeve."

Daniel gets snippy about Kate practically killing Victor. Kate says that wasn't her intention. Chelsea walks up and stops the lover's spat. Kate admits she dropped the Phillip bomb on Victor. Daniel wins an overacting Emmy as he tells Kate he'll be the judge of who can send his patients into cardiac arrest.

Chelsea bawls Daniel out for talking to Kate that way and demands an apology.

"Don't concern yourself about it," says Daniel, "Kate likes it rough."

Bo assures Victor Phillip will be OK as soon as the body part shipment arrives. Victor tells Bo he can get his hands on as much of Phillip's blood type as they need, "I have a lifetime membership at Bed, Bath and Body Parts."

Morgan assures Chloe Phillip is dong better. Sarcastic Chloe is sure Morgan's love is all he needs. Hope butts in and asks to talk to Morgan. After Morgan and Hope leave, Chloe sits and whines like a lost puppy, "OMG Phillip, how did we end up here? I'm so sorry for the way things turned out for us. I tried though, didn't I? I went down like a two-foot putt. I should have done everything I could to keep you from getting involved with her."

John wants the place cleaned up and then he has something to show Ava that will take away all her fears.

Compassionate Hope says she realizes this is a difficult time for Morgan, so she doesn't want to upset her. She then proceeds to grill her like Public Enemy #1. Morgan doesn't want to do this but Hope the Horrific prevails. She asks Morgan the same old questions. Morgan tells her everything but Hopeless wants to go over it again. She thinks the "proof" is missing from the package.

Kate don' wan' no stinkin' apology. She doesn't want anything from Daniel. She walks off and Chelsea wonders why he treated her like that. Daniel insists he's just doing his job. He blows up and rants about the importance of keeping Victor calm. Chelsea says she's never seen him like this before. She wants Danny and Granny to be civil with each other.

Victor says one of his men can get the blood supply. Bo rants about compromising his career. Victor says what Bo did was in the best interests of the family. "Well," says Bo, "Hope is my family too, and Shawn and what's-her-name."

John takes Ava down to the DiMera dungeon.

Victor assures Bo no one ever needs to know about the tape. "Yeah, but I know," says Bo. Daniel comes in to take Victor down for tests. Victor says, "I'm sorry Bo." Bo leaves and Victor tells Daniel he knows someone who can give Phillip blood. Daniel says they have all the blood they need.

Victor protests, "But Phillip has a rare blood type."

"Salem Hospital is working hard to reduce the bureaucracy in medicine," says Daniel, "In order to be more efficient and save time, we've stopped typing blood. I want you to focus on getting well."

Victor wants to see Phillip. Daniel vetoes it, but offers to bring some parts of him to Victor's room.

Hope badgers Morgan, who is too worried about Phillip to focus.

Chloe says, "I'll be praying for you, Phillip and I'll..." The audience chants with her in unison, "always be there for you." She gets up to leave and runs smack into Morgan. Chloe tells her if she can make Philip happy that's all that matters.

Ava and John walk into the dungeon. The camera focuses in on a pair of shoes. We pan up to the socks. Slowly, we traverse a pair of Dockers. The suspense is killing you, isn't it?

PAUL!

Paul shoots out of bed and snorts at Ava, "Your boys roughed me up!"

John drones, "There is no reason to adopt that attitude. You could be floating like a bloated rag doll in the Salem River right now. Instead you're yelling at the rag doll."

Ava bawls John out for harboring Paul.

Paul wants to see Morgan and let her know he's all right. John refuses. Paul reveals John forced him to write the second note. John wonders why the tape hasn't surfaced.

Hope nags Bo about Victor and Phillip. She tells him about her conversation with Morgan. Hope thinks there was more to the package than the money and the letter, "I see a gap in the chain of events. You were alone with that package and I wonder if you found something else in there." Bo is silent... a skill Hope has never developed. "OMG," gasps Hope, "There was something else in the package wasn't there?"

If Morgan is right for Phillip Chloe says she will support that. Chloe turns to leave but can't resist a parting shot, "Don't hurt him."

"He doesn't have any parts left to hurt," says Morgan.

Chelsea wonders why Kate isn't more upset since Daniel is so much out of line. Kate brushes it off. Daniel comes up and asks to speak with Kate alone.

John gets off the phone, "My mole inside the SPD has reviewed things and the tape hasn't surfaced yet."

"I have," says Paul, "Isn't that enough?"

Ava thinks Bo may have made the evidence disappear. Paul goes into another tirade about wanting to see Morgan. John shuts him up, "Phillip can't be framed for your murder if you're still breathing, so you might want to be more helpful." All Paul wants is to see Morgan and let her know he is OK. John tells Paul Morgan has fallen in love with Phillip. Ava tells him Phillip took a bullet for her.

Nicole rushes into the hospital waiting area. Chloe tells her Phillip is still unconscious. Chloe thinks Phillip would be shocked if he saw them together being civil. She tells her Morgan is in with him, "Philip took the bullet for her. He's her hero and she's in love with him."

Morgan fantasizes about dancing with Phillip. This would be a good time to go fix those Bologna sandwiches for the kids' lunch.

Phillip's machines beep. Morgan asks him to wake up.

Chelsea wants to stay and hear Daniel and Kate's juicy conversation, but Kate sends her packing. Daniel apologizes for making a scene earlier. Kate says, "I shouldn't have said anything to Victor, but I was afraid someone else might and I called dibbs on giving him a heart attack." She knows Daniel is under strain what with having a relationship with both her and Chelsea, "You have a kind heart and are a good man which is why I..."

"What?"

"Never mind."

Ava leaves. John tells Paul about Eddie shooting at Morgan and Phillip taking the hit. Paul explodes, "What was that moron doing firing the gun at her."

"Firing a gun at her was the best way to make sure he hit her," says John.

Paul vows to get out of John's dungeon and reveal all. John tells him to be patient. He says when this is all over Morgan will have nothing to do with Phillip.

Back to Morgan's fantasy. If the kids want seconds... Phillip picks her up and carries her off. Things get serious on a conveniently located couch.

Morgan smiles. Phillip vegetates.

Chloe and Nicole just know Phillip will make it. Chloe doesn't think she has a chance with him if he does, though. Nicole thinks they are becoming friends.

"Let's not get too crazy," says Chloe.

"It's too late to make that decision," says Nicole.

Ava wanders into the Java Café and gets on her laptop.

Chelsea comes into Victor's room looking for him, "Where's my grandpa?"

Brooding Daniel looks up at her, "He's out having a cat scan."

"Oh, no," gasps Chelsea, "He's allergic to cats."

Daniel apologizes for his tirade earlier, "Things are all good with Kate now."

"She's a very forgiving lady," says Chelsea.

"Oh, I thought we were talking about Kate," says Daniel, "And how about you? Are you OK?"

Chelsea tells him Victor is lucky to have him in his life and so is she. She moves in for some liplock. Granny watches.

John is disappointed in Paul's betrayal. Paul insists it was a lapse in judgment and he will do what it takes to make it up to him. John tells him that's why he is there. Paul wonders if his plan is to keep him there forever. John tells Paul he's lucky his men fished him out of the water. He smacks Paul's chest and snorts, "I gave you a second shot at life."

"And I'm eternally grateful."

"So shut up," growls John, "And do what I tell you."

A nurse passes by. Chloe stops her, "Do you have any word on Phillip Kiriakis?"

"No," says the nurse, "I've been assigned to his brother's case. Lucas Roberts."

"Thank goodness," says Chloe, "For a minute there I thought you meant Lucas Horton."

Bo insists there was nothing else in that package. A cop comes up to Hope, "We got this anonymous email," he says, "I thought you'd like to see it."

Bo overhears, "An anonymous email? Who's it from?" "

Hope reads, "What happened to the evidence in the Paul Hollingsworth case looks like a police cover-up. What do you think?"

Wow for a homeless orphan who had to be rescued from the mean streets of Salem, Max sure is well traveled.

Trent suggests a going away thing for Professor Fergus and wants Nick to talk to Max about renting the Brady pub. Nick suggests he talk to Caroline.

What a novel idea! Talking to the owner of an establishment you want to use for an event. Good thing Trent has Nick to help be his party planner.

Bo assures Victor Phillip will be OK as soon as the body part shipment arrives
Curse that Canadian postal service for being so slow!

I should have done everything I could to keep you from getting involved with her.
Nooooo - too - many - censored - comments....Oh what the heck
CENSORED! DO NOT CLICK HERE!

"There was something else in the package wasn't there?"

Warning! Cross NBC show joke ahead:
That's what SHE Said.

Daniel apologizes for his tirade earlier, "Things are all good with Kate now."
"She's a very forgiving lady," says Chelsea.


Unless of course your name happens to be Sami Brady.

Glad to see you back in top form Prevuze!

Morgan pines away, "I think I'm falling in love with you."

Oh brother. Apparently Morgan has read just one too many romance novels. She needs to get a puppy. Better yet, a kitten. They don’t need to be house broken.

Chelsea bawls Daniel out for talking to Kate that way and demands an apology.

"Don't concern yourself about it," says Daniel, "Kate likes it rough."


Why doesn’t that surprise me?

”You could be floating like a bloated rag doll in the Salem River right now. Instead you're yelling at the rag doll."

Prevuze, that should be skanky rag doll.

Morgan fantasizes about dancing with Phillip. This would be a good time to go fix those Bologna sandwiches for the kids' lunch.

Thanks for the heads up Prevuze. I have no children but I can always use the time to scoop out the litter box. After all, DOOL is synonymous with litter box.

Thank you Prevuze for taking part of your vacation to update the faithful on the crazy machinations of the Daze denizens. If the rumors are true and Dena Higley has left the helm as head writer of DOOL, we’re in for more insanity as another writing crew takes over. How can there be creative differences when there is no creativity? The biggest problem with this soap is lack of continuity. With all the personality swings, the characters on the soap appear to be suffering from a bipolar disorder. For fans, it’s like riding the Tilt-A-Whirl. You get jerked around at high speeds, and when it’s over, you have to hurl.

What a welcome sight this morning – Prevuze back and plus-sized at that! Loved the recap of yesterday’s missing feed.

Deb – BAD censored link BAD! Hehehe

Actually, Bulldog, I think the Horton “lost cases” file would be a lot thicker. Are you sure that isn’t just volume 1? LOL

There sure seemed to be a lot of harping & nagging & grilling & hectoring going on in this episode. Bet there’ll be a lot of zapping going on too.

"[Victor has] a lifetime membership at Bed, Bath and Body Parts."

He needs it given the number of times Philip has needed replacement parts.

"Salem Hospital is working hard to reduce the bureaucracy in medicine," says Daniel, "In order to be more efficient and save time, we've stopped typing blood.”

Hey, don’t rag on the hospital. They are just going green! Think of all the trees they are saving by not running tests and printing off reports and junk like that!! I say let’s get rid of those big, thick, paper-hogging medical records next.

Kate says, "I shouldn't have said anything to Victor, but I was afraid someone else might and I called dibbs on giving him a heart attack."

She sure tried hard enough to send him over the edge.

Bo overhears, "An anonymous email? Who's it from?"

A good police computer crimes expert could tell where the message was sent from in about two seconds. Heck, a computer-savvy third grader could ferret that information out in three seconds. Did I say a “good” police expert? Sorry ‘bout that. Forgot what police department we’re talking about here.

Back and in top form, Prevuze. Thanks!

Thank you, thank you thank you!!!! I was starting to look for a good Prevuze detox center!

It was a tremendous relief to see Prevuze today! I was beginning to get the PT's.

And it's officially stuck in my head now...I'll never walk into Bed, Bath & Beyond again without thinking of good ol' Phil. HAHAHA

Nicole will be out her fortune when it's revealed she wasn't legally married to Victor. She better latch onto some other rich guy (like Jawn) or shove Morgan and Chloe out of the way and get chummy with Phillip quick.

LOL over "Bo overhears, "An anonymous e-mail? Who's it from?" And, Deb, your link must really be bad - the security force at work won't let me view it. Oh well, something to look forward to when I get home tonight.

Prevuze, fantastic job!!!

How does Bo take the nagging?? I think if I was him I'd ask Abe for a new partner and a good lawyer to handle my divorce.

Welcome back, Prevuze!

Sounds like I was right about Kate and Daniel continuing to have sex with her remark to him? That type of man just wouldn't give up sex with one woman until he definitely has a sure thing going with the other one. I just hope Chelsea finds out what a jerk Daniel is before she has sex with him. He is the lowest. Doing Granny Kate and wanting Chelsea as well. IMO, he wouldn't know how to love any woman, just in it for the sex.

So glad Nick is back on DOOL. I hope he rescues Chelsea from the evil sex-hungry Dr. Daniel soon, and that she finds out it was him who gave her that $50K he won in Vegas anonymously through Kate. I also hope she finds out Kate and Daniel are still having sex. Kate is as big a jerk as Daniel is.

I thought Lucas was in the max security prison...?

Anonymous Bulldog said...

Yeah, I meant to ask about that, too - about the Lucas remark. Did Carmine have a homemade shiv and found out about Chloe or something?

Maybe if he's in the hospital, too, Kate can go in and say something disturbing to almost kill him.

Lisa - now that would be the return-from-the-dead to end all return-from-the-dead since Marlena's twin was killed by the Salem Strangler a gazillion years ago!

Now, they did have Marlena play a waitress (or someone) that Stephano/Bart/Rolf re-created to look like Marlena. She is still out there somewhere, maybe that's who is coming back. She and Bart were a hoot together. I've heard Bart might be coming back too, so that's something to look forward to.

I would still love to get my hands on a tape of the two days where Bart dragged the imposter into the hospital and she "confessed" what she'd been up to in front of the whole Salem gang. Those two episodes were, bar none, the FUNNIEST things I have ever seen on this show.

Bart was so hilarious. Between him and the "fake" trash-talking Marlena the rest of the cast were struggling to keep straight faces. A couple of them actually had to turn away from the cameras a couple of times because they couldn't hold it together.

Anyone have that out there? Now THOSE would be tremendous scenes to have out on You-Tube or somewhere.

Next best, for me, were the scenes about the same time of Bart sitting down beside a dead Rolf, oblivious that Rolf was dead, and having an entire conversation with him. (Of course, little did we know Rolf would return to life.)

Ah, the good ole days!

UGH!! TO Marlena. Where does she get off going off on EJ like that. Characters on this show have more personalities than DOOL has had Head Writers in the last two years!
