Strip Poker

Rolf serves Ava a drink at John's party, which is ever so more sophisticated than the party over at Bo and Hope's house. Translation: Boring. EJ says he would prefer an old fashioned BBQ, "Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and no DOOL. Rolf, lets get this thing going. Why don't you throw a couple of weenies on the grill?"

Rolf goes into action, grabs Lucas and EJ and tosses them on the grill. The lights flicker. EJ gets a call and leaves the room. Ava asks why Nicole's mood has gone downhill. Nicole tells her EJ thinks he has a chance with Sami and he probably does.

EJ gets off the phone with Mrs. Sykes and calls Sami. Lucas listens as EJ leaves a message telling her how happy she made him and how he hopes they can continue their conversation tonight.

Chloe is at the pub telling her mom she has no plans for the Fourth. She hangs up and gets another call. Lucas says he could use a friend right now. Conveniently, Chloe can't come over so Lucas decides to come to her. She asks him not to, but Lucas says he has nothing to lose any more. He hangs up and deanklemonitorizes himself.

Nicole has decided she doesn't want the heartache of continuing to chase after EJ. She tells Ava Sami admitted she has feelings for EJ. Ava thinks Nicole could make EJ forget all about Sami. She goes to look for John. John comes down the stairs as the lights flicker. He answers the doorbell and finds Marlena. She's there to see if he has come to his senses, "If you haven't, I'm not leaving until you do."

"You can move into the spare bedroom," says John.

Victor joins Bo and Hope's party. Caroline tells him it's a nice surprise to see him. Victor says, "I know you're still grieving for OMB so I'll back off. Until later." Bo walks up and asks if they have seen Chelsea. Victor and Caroline say neither of them has seen her. "Maybe she turned sideways," says Bo.

Chelsea is glad Daniel is there. He wonders if Bo will be glad. They share a kiss for luck.

Marlena apologizes for letting her anger get the best of her the last time they were together. John accepts. Marlena hopes he has given the disc some thought. John insists he has and has decided to stay away from it, "The man you knew and loved is dead and gone. The sooner you accept that the better."

EJ says he didn't mean to be insensitive but thought it was important to be honest with Nicole. She knows his heart belongs to Sami, but Nicole bets Sami will not leave Lucas.

"Maggie says, "I'm sorry Lucas is stuck in the DiMera mansion."

Mickey says, "Not as sorry as the people who are stuck there with him." Maggie thinks the living arrangements over there must be tough with the tiresome threesome all together there. She draws the inevitable parallel between that situation and their little episode with her, Mickey and Bonnie living together, "After a while, something's gotta give."

Mickey sighs and remembers fondly, "Yes and Bonnie had so much to give."

Lucas sneaks through the lobby of the Salem Inn. He makes a call to Chloe. Chloe says, "Lucas, I was getting worried you got caught."

Lucas says, "No. I'll be right there." A cop passes by.

Hope is sorry Gran isn't there, but at least they have her donuts. Bo would say something but it's hard to talk with fourteen donuts in his mouth.

Hope wonders where Chelsea is. Bo swallows a clump of donuts and says, "Here she is now... with her date."

Daniel and Chelsea walk in. Daniel says, "It's not cooling off, is it?"

Chelsea says, "No. I think it's only gonna get hotter." Daniel decides he needs a beer before he sees Bo.

Victor greets Chelsea and Daniel. Chelsea tells him Daniel is her date, "I knew I could tell you, Grandpa, because you'd be the only one to understand." Understanding Victor immediately hauls Daniel off for a man-to-perv talk.

EJ thinks Nicole will lose that bet. Nicole thinks Sami would deny it even if she were in love with him. "That's an annoyingly astute observation," says EJ, "But she will eventually crack and tell Lucas he is out. She didn't tell Lucas the annulment went through because she wants to be with me."

John and Marlena argue about the disc. We've heard it all before.

Marlena begs, "Think of our life... getting married... having our daughter Belle..."

John is blunt, "From what I hear, it wasn't exactly in that order."

Marlena scolds, "Don't be flip with me!" She asks him to let her have the disc for safekeeping. John refuses. Ava watches.

John comes back in with Nicole. He asks where Ava is. Nicole says she's looking for John.

Meanwhile, Ava is in the lab stealing the disc as the lights again flicker.

Rolf rushes up to John, "Zomeone haz entered zee lab. Zecurity haz been breached."

Bo comes over to Chelsea and nods toward the intense conversation going on between Victor and Daniel, "It looks like I'm not the only one who has a problem with your date."

"We're both adults," insists Chelsea.

"Chronologically, maybe," says Bo, "But I'm afraid he'll end up hurting you."

"Thanks for the vote of confidence," snorts the brat. She stomps off. Bo starts to follow. Hope grabs him but Big Bad Bo assures her he can handle it.

"As well as you just handled this conversation," asks Hope.

Bo goes after Chelsea. Doug recalls a few similar father-daughter moments with Hope.

"But you didn't have Victor to contend with," says Hope.

Victor thinks Daniel should have at least told him about his intentions to date Chelsea, "I don't like surprises." Daniel reminds Victor he was standing right there when he asked her out. "I just thought that was a simple dinner," snorts Victor.

"It's not like we're getting married," says Daniel.

"Knowing you, I'm sure that's true," growls Vic. Daniel says he won't hurt Chelsea. Victor doesn't think he's good relationship material.

"With all due respect," says Daniel, "Who are you to be giving relationship advice?" A referee steps up and penalizes Daniel fifteen yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. An undertaker accompanies him, anticipating Victor's next move.

Sami comes downstairs and listens to the conversation between Nicole and EJ, "Nicole... dammit!" She huffs outside and makes a call.

Nicole bets EJ $100 that Sami will dump him. EJ gets a call. Sami says she has to talk to him. She leads him to believe she's at Bo and Hope's BBQ, and the twins are wandering the streets searching for Waldo. She wants him to understand they can never be together, "I love Lucas and he and I will spend all the Days Of Our Lives together." Sami goes on as Nicole soaks it in.

EJ hangs up. Nicole asks, "Did she blow you off? Fastest $100 I ever made."

Lucas sneaks around as the cop at the Salem in searches. Not a donut in the place.

Ava holds the disc as John comes into the laboooooratory, "Hello, Ava what are you doing here?" Ava hyperventilates.

EJ is devastated. Nicole tells him to forget the $100, "You can't keep doing this to yourself. It's time to let her go."

"Good point," says EJ, "I've had enough. I am through groveling. She can be with Lucas. I'm not standing around acting like an idiot any longer. I'll sit down instead." EJ decides to get out of the mansion and Nicole decides to follow.

Victor says he takes offense at what Daniel said. Daniel backs off and says he was just pointing out Victor had been married a few times. Victor just doesn't want to see Chelsea get hurt.

Bo apologizes for upsetting Chelsea. She asks him to give Daniel and her a chance before jumping to conclusions. "I'll do that," says Bo, "and then I'll jump to conclusions." She reminds him everyone was telling Hope to stay away from him but she didn't listen. She knows she might not get the same happy ending but she wants to try.

"When did you become so grown up," asks Bo.

Chelsea shushes him, "Don't tell Daniel I'm a grownup. He'll drop me like a hot potato." She says this feels right and she has to figure it out on her own. Bo decides he has to step back.

"Don't step too far back," says Chelsea, "Until you have a cliff behind you. If he hurts me you have to kick his butt." Bo will gladly do that.

Lucas sneaks past the guard and into the elevator with Chloe.

Nicole and EJ arrive at the Salem Inn as the lights flicker. EJ wonders if they should take the stairs. Nicole says it will be fine and, besides, she is on the sixth floor. They get into the elevator. The doors close, the elevator lurches and the lights go out.

Emergency lights come on in the other elevator. Chloe panics, "I'm claustrophobic!"

"Don't worry," says Lucas, "Claus is nowhere near here." Hugs.

EJ announces they are stuck. Nicole is glad she brought champagne.

Chloe whines and tells Lucas it's over with Phillip. Lucas says he's sorry to hear that. He says he heard Nicole and EJ talking, "Sami has admitted having feelings for EJ."

EJ sprays the champagne. "It's a good thing I have a deck of cards in my purse," says Nicole, "Strip poker?" EJ decides they should play it straight.

Nicole starts whining about not having anyone. EJ tells her she has been a breath of fresh air and has given good advice.

"If I give good advice," asks Nicole, "Then why don't you take it?"

John figures they are locked in the lab since there has been a power failure. He says he can override the locks but first things first, "What were you doing here?"

Ava says she was concerned and didn't want to have Marlena talking him into something. She doesn't want to lose him, "I think you should destroy that disc before Marlena or someone else changes your mind."

Victor tells Daniel he will ease off. Daniel goes back to his date. Julie announces Alice called and said there is a blackout in town. Bo proudly announces the lights will stay on at the Brady house since they have gone green. What he fails to announce is that he set up the whole system. Predictably, the lights go out. Bo has an epiphany, "The lights are out. I figured that out the instant everything went black." Bo and Hope go to investigate.

Daniel tells Chelsea Victor is just concerned about her, "But I'm not worried." He moves in and takes advantage of the blackout. It's easier to kiss Chelsea when he doesn't have to look at her.

Fireworks. "Ooohhhhh! Aaahhhhhh!"

Bo flicks switches and says he has no idea what's wrong with the circuits, "I guess instead of going green, we went black." Since Bo is clueless about how to get the lights back on, they talk about Daniel and Chelsea, "If he doesn't hurt my daughter I won't hurt him."

Ava says she thinks John will disappear on her if he accesses the disc. She asks him if he thinks he will be happy if he gets his memory back.

Marlena wanders and finds the lab. She listens through the door as Ava asks him to destroy the disc. Marlena screams through the door, "Don't do it, John! Don't listen to her! Don't throw your life away!"

Chelsea says, "I hope it stays dark so nobody will freak out when I do this..." Slurping...

Fireworks go off as the lights come back on at Bo and Hope's house.

Chloe tells Lucas she is feeling better. They eye each other. Lucas moves in. Things heat up in elevator #1.

EJ says maybe he should take Nicole's advice. Things heat up in elevator #2.

Marlena screams. John contemplates the disc, "Change in all things is sweet – Aristotle." He crushes the disc and goes into a mad-dog rage trashing the lab. Marlena bangs on the door and bawls.

Prevuze, your spell check must be going positively apoplectic.

She's there to see if he has come to his senses, "If you haven't, I'm not leaving until you do."

"You can move into the spare bedroom," says John.


If there’s an elevator next to the bedroom, that might work. Apparently, stuck elevators are going to be providing a spot for all the holiday fireworks.

Bo walks up and asks if they have seen Chelsea. Victor and Caroline say neither of them has seen her. "Maybe she turned sideways," says Bo.

Quick, get her to the buffet table and stuff her with potato salad!!

"Maggie says, "I'm sorry Lucas is stuck in the DiMera mansion."

Mickey says, "Not as sorry as the people who are stuck there with him."


…or those of us stuck watching him.

Ahhh, the power is officially out so the romping has begun. Last August I had no electricity for three days, and all I got out of it was six bags of spoiled food. Since the cable company required an additional day to get things up and running, I couldn’t score my Daze fix for three whole days…such tragedy!!! Well, anyway, what’s Sami going to do now? Both of the men she’s been playing for fools have turned elsewhere for a little nastiness. Things will undoubtedly get ugly, and Sami’s still too much of a block head for any type of revelation.

…and now a little Areosmith…

Love in an elevator
Livin it up when I’m goin down
Love in an elevator
Lovin it up till I hit the ground

Sorry Prevuze, I couldn’t help myself.

Loved the first two pics - the perfect summation of parenthood on DOOL. LOLOL

I got to add a new word to my DOOL vocabulary as well - Deanklemonitorizes.

In the future you could refer to Lucas as "DaMZing" and save some keystrokes. HA

Marlena begs, "Think of our life... getting married... having our daughter Belle..."
John is blunt, "From what I hear, it wasn't exactly in that order."

Love, LOVE, LUV the new Jawn. Please don’t bring the old one back!

"With all due respect," says Daniel, "Who are you to be giving relationship advice?" A referee steps up and penalizes Daniel fifteen yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. An undertaker accompanies him, anticipating Victor's next move.

A few years ago, a crack like that would have earned Daniel a little up-close and personal time with Victor's faithful minion, Nicco. Where is Nicco by the way??

Bo proudly announces the lights will stay on at the Brady house since they have gone green. What he fails to announce is that he set up the whole system. Predictably, the lights go out. Bo has an epiphany, "The lights are out. I figured that out the instant everything went black."

ROFLMAO

Chelsea says, "I hope it stays dark so nobody will freak out when I do this..." Slurping...

EVERYONE in the Prevuze audience stands up and goes, EEEEEUUUUUUWWWW – no lights, no lights!

But, Prevuze, you are the light of the day. Shine on!

Ejole sex at last! I can't wait. They've been building to it since she came back in April. The Chloe/Lucas stuff is totally out of left field though, but we all know it won't last. Sami & Lucas will never be free of each other.
Thanks for the recaps!

I hope the lights stay off during the Chan slurp, spare us all.

Finally love in an elevator gets here. I admit Luloe came out of nowhere but anything that breaks up the triangle is fine by me.

Hee to Marlena wailing outside the door while John breaks the disk. Keep OldJohn dead for good!

So our fourth of July episode is elevator sex and Chan? God.

And let me echo Kate's reaction upon seeing Chan making out at the party.

Prevuze,

I just have to say...so much snarkiness, so little time!!!

I'm so glad I've got you to keep me up to date on what's happening, seeing as my cable isn't hooked up yet! I have to be honest and say that even if I did have cable, I wouldn't be watching anyway. I haven't watched a show in a LONG time because you are SO much more entertaining!

Thanks for biting the bullet for all of us faithful readers!

Judy :D

I heard that Joe Mascolo is returning as Stefano sometime later this summer (August, I think). Now that John has destroyed the disk and the lab, I'll bet Marlena brings him out of his coma in the hopes that he will return John to his old self. Here's to hoping he fails!!! I LOVE NuJawn!

Why wouldn't Alice be at the barbecue?? That is ridiculous.

And, I too loved the Doug and Julie pic - hysterical!

I was going to suggest anyone who thinks that's THE disk should have to retake DOOL 101. But then cfish's scenario Stef is brought back to life by Marlena to bring Squints back is a good one. If that's true maybe that was the real disk. Still, I'm with everyone else. NuJawn for keeps, PLEASE!!

And I was wondering about poor old Alice, too. Nobody worries about her over in the dark by herself? Or is she taking care of Ciara in the dark? HA

Prevuze, I love it when you're at your snarky best - naimly the Jugs and Doolie pic! Also this one: Why don't you throw a couple of weenies on the grill?" Rolf goes into action, grabs Lucas and EJ and tosses them on the grill." HAHAHAHHA

Thanks for the laughs!

HAHAHAHAHA! Good one.

Ask Bo or Victor and they'll tell you he's old enough to be God.

It could have been better if I actually said party instead of appearance.

Oh well, here:

Excellent! Though Victor would say that's why Daniel is his Godson

Alice isn't taking care of Ciara. She was at the party of the year. Remember? She was having iced tea in the "green" kitchen with Julie.
That "green" kitchen. The only thing in it green is the countertops. Oooo. Way to save energy. Change out your countertops to crushed sunflower seeds. But, install a new fully electric stove. Since nobody ever uses that kitchen for anything other than making coffee, tea or soda for the Brady Soroity house, Maybe it blew the power in Salem when Hope turned on the stove to show it off to Julie. Betsy Ross was so amazed at the kitchen turning "green" that she quickly side stepped into another conversation. " How can we help with the Barbeque?"
Didn't someone say Ava was getting off of the show this summer? Well, WHEN????? I'm tired of those Baby Deer eyes leering at everybody. She reminds me of the pictures from the 70s where all the kids had huge brown eyes. Ick. I just want to give her a can of little friskies and put her on the porch.
We've known for a while now that poor Dayahhhdeee (Paul) is daid (dead). Why won't somebody find him and let's get this show on the road, here? Women have had kids missing for years that haven't suffered as much as Paul's mother is suffering over her little lost lamb...now wait....that's not his mother, is it? It's his daughter, Morgan. Sometimes I think she's his mother. Kind of like I think Steph. is Max's mother. Lighten up chicks. Go read a trashy novel or something. Be normal.

Ugh. As much as Sami has never made very much sense, she makes even less sense now. That phone call? What?!

I guess DOOL *really* wanted EJole sex. I don't, but I also am pretty close to not caring. They don't even let couples develop to the point of letting us grow to like them anymore.
