Big Bazoons

And just when you thought it was safe to watch because things couldn't get any more dull...

Nicole and EJ decide they are fashionably late as they arrive at the Kiriakis mansion. They stand at the door as Victor barges between them, "Wrong house. Go home."

Nicole protests, "But we were invited. Chloe is my best friend."

"That's a frightening thought," says Victor, "I'm uninviting you."

EJ jumps in, "You're certainly cranky this evening."

Victor growls, "And you've got your head up your... you're a damn fool to bring this woman. How gullible are you?"

Marlena surfs and reads about Charlotte.

Meanwhile, Charlotte conducts her session as John sees the love of his life. Then he flashes back to a time when he and Marlena were locked up. It's the only way Marlena could get him to stay around her.

Back at the party people stand around murmuring and chuckling. Out in the audience, people sit around snoring. Daniel flashes back to his little session with Chloe as we pan across the room and see Lucas standing beside her half-asleep on her shoulder. No one can stay awake through this misery. Kate asks Daniel where he was, "I just assumed you were called back to the hospital. What made you come back?"

"There was more misery and suffering here," says Daniel.

John remains under and screams, "I can't let her die!"

A gal in the audience yells, "Yes you can!"

Charlotte wakes him up. Another gal in the audience yells, "Hey, what about us? Someone needs to wake us up, too."

Charlotte asks, "What do you remember?"

Victor, EJ and Nicole continue to trade insults. Victor tells EJ, "You're not just an idiot, you're a damn masochist."

EJ says, "You are such a miserable wretch."

Victor growls, "You don't know what misery is, EJ. But, trust me, you will."

Prevuze

Back inside, Daniel gets dramatic (a rare event on this show), "There is something I need to say."

Chloe says, "Please, Daniel, don't."

EJ and Nicole follow Victor in as Daniel toasts Chloe and Lucas, "May your choices always be the right ones and may you forever be happy with them." You didn't think he was going to spill the beans about Chloe and him, did you? Come on, that would have actually moved things along. We can't have that.

Marlena gets a phone number from the Internet, calls and asks for more info on Charlotte.

"I don't remember anything," says John, "It's that same feeling you get after watching DOOL."

Stephanie and Phillip watch Chloe and Lucas smooch and decide they will be happy together.

Kate comes up to Chloe and Lucas and asks, "Did you pick out a dress for the wedding yet?"

"No," says Lucas, "but Chloe has."

Victor decides to keep up the verbal shelling, "Well, we know one thing... Chloe's dress won't be white!" He advises Lucas to put off the wedding as long as possible, "Wait until you can see past the physical into the empty soul and then run like hell." Victor leaves. Lucas gets a call from Maggie and goes off to take it.

Nicole comes up to Chloe and asks what's making her miserable. "I think I made a huge mistake," says Chloe, "Green isn't my color."

Lucas gets off the phone and chats with EJ. They discuss Victor's insults. Lucas says EJ might want to pay attention to Victor where Nicole is concerned, "She's never satisfied."

EJ's macho hackles are up, "She might not have been with you but with me she's well taken care of. He leans in and whispers, "We even did it once. I'm such a tiger."

Chloe tells Nicole she doesn't want to hurt Lucas. Daniel interrupts and asks for a word with Chloe.

John thinks the session was a bust and figures Charlotte is trying to let him down easy. She tells him things will take time and encourages him not to give up.

Chloe refuses to talk to Daniel and walks off. Daniel zones. Nicole brings him back to earth and they chat about her baby. Daniel suspects all is not right with Nicole.

Chelsea tries to talk Kate into pouting about Daniel. Chelsea insists she still does not have feelings for Daniel. Kate asks, "Because you moved on with Max?"

A gal in the audience turns to the person next to her, "She probably doesn't have feelings because she's watching this episode and she's gone numb."

Max asks Lucas about a bachelor party. "No strippers," says Lucas.

"Where is the real Lucas Horton," gasps Max, "Why wouldn't you want strippers at your bachelor party?"

"That might add some excitement to the show," says Lucas, "And we certainly wouldn't want to do that. Besides, you'll understand someday. The day will come when you only want to spent time with Chelsea."

Max denies they are a couple, "I don't know... No... We're just hanging out. We're just friends."

Lucas says, "You make a cute couple."

Phillip congratulates Chloe. Stephanie watches. Daniel watches. Millions of viewers around the country don't.

Out in the hallway of her office, Charlotte continues to try to convince John to give the sessions a chance. John holds out a ticket, "Can I get my parking validated?"

Chelsea tells Kate, "Max and I are strictly platonic."

Kate says, "So that means there is nothing physical about your relationship."

"No," says Chelsea, "That means we're moving very slowly, like those platonic plates that are under the ocean."


Daniel and Nicole stroll across the room and talk. Nicole insists everything is just peachy with her pregnancy. Daniel asks about her doctor. Nicole accidentally on purpose drops her plate of hors o'dourves and evades the question. She and EJ decide it's time to leave. EJ goes for the coats as Nicole gets a call from Mia. Mia says she needs to talk to Nicole about the baby.

Phillip and Stephanie are back at Titan. Phillip desperately searches for a disc he needs for a presentation. Stephanie finds it, but refuses to give it to him until he promises for the entire week he will not work past 7PM. She wants him to make time for something other than work. Phillip moves in and makes time for other things.

Chelsea and Max leave. Chloe thanks Kate for the party.

Victor continues his grousing, "Dreadful party, isn't it?"

"No," says Daniel.

Victor pops an hors o'dourve, "What? Are you enjoying all the sniping, awkwardness and tasteless canapé?

"No," says Daniel, "Just the tasteless dialogue. But I think you're underestimating Chloe."

Victor keeps it up, "Chloe has jumped into bed with half of Salem."

"Unfortunately," says Daniel, "I'm in the other half."

"And all Lucas does," says Victor, "is keep going after for women with big bazoons. Well... I guess he did make an exception for Nicole."

Daniel tells him not to talk about Chloe that way. He reminds him Chloe saved Kate's life, "Your contempt for her cheapens you."

John comes into the pub and joins Marlena. He tells her the hypnotherapy session was a bust and says he wants out, "I'm not in this for the joy of being shrunk." Marlena apologizes for pushing him.

Max and Chelsea come into the pub. They continue to dance around their relationship. Max asks if she's going for Daniel now that he's free again. Chelsea gets annoyed because Max has already asked her about that. She claims to have zero interest in Daniel, "And why do you care?" Max chuckles.

Phillip tells Stephanie he doesn't have feelings for Chloe any more, "Someone else has come into my life who is incredibly sexy."

Stephanie says, "Sexually harassing an employee. You're just begging for trouble."

"You're right," says Phillip, "We can't do this."

Mia and Nicole agree to meet. EJ brings her coat and overhears, "Who's Mia?"

Victor growls, "Chloe's a user! I don't care if she gave her bone marrow to everyone in the Midwest!"

"Maybe she did," says Daniel, "That would explain the STD epidemic. But you owe Chloe a little respect."

Kate and Chloe chat about Nicole . Chloe can't believe how forgiving Kate is. Hugs. Daniel walks in.

Stephanie claims she was just making a joke. Phillip says, "Yeah, but you can never be too safe with loose-lips Melanie around." He doesn't think they should work together any more.

Marlena tells John about Charlotte and all the awards she's won, "She's a keeper."

John comes out of left field, "Does that men you're giving me permission to date her."

Max says, "Now that you and Kate have both dropped Daniel, maybe the two of you can go pick up guys together."

Nicole tells EJ Mia is someone she met at the doctor's office. Mia found her bracelet so Nicole thought she'd go pick it up. EJ offers to go with her.

Chloe has something to tell Lucas. People in the audience sit on the edge of their seats waiting to hear what that will be.

Chelsea and Max talk about how great it is not to be in a relationship. The new bar-wench Michelle takes their order. Max order for Chelsea. She orders for him.

"You guys are telepathic," says Michelle, "You're such a cool couple!"

Gee, Marlena doesn't want John to date Charlotte.

Stephanie stops just short of groveling, "If it's you or Titan, I can quit."

"Think of all the college credits you will miss out on if you quit," says Phillip, "We need you here. This whole big multinational corporation would collapse without you as a lame temporary intern."

Stephanie pouts, "If you want to break up just say so."

EJ and Nicole get back to the DiMera mansion. He wants to know why she insists on going to see Mia alone. Nicole gives him her "I'm a big girl" speech. EJ grabs the car keys and goes upstairs. Nicole calls Mia and says she can't make it. Mia offers to come to her. "That's a terrible idea," says Nicole.

Chloe's big announcement to Lucas is to tell him she doesn't deserve all this. Lucas gets sucked in to her whiny little trap, "You're part of the family now. It will be like this for all the Days Of Our Lives. You're the only person I want to be with. I Want to be here with you and no one else. I've never felt that way about anyone else." Smoochies. He goes for the car.

Out in the audience, the Lumi's break out the cyanide capsules.

Chloe turns and stares in the mirror. Daniel comes up behind her, "That's a nice act you put on."

Phillip insists they aren't breaking up but says he needs to reassign her. "You think it's funny watching me squirm, don't you," asks Stephanie.

"I think it's sexy watching you squirm," says Phillip, "Just about anything you do is sexy." He moves in.

Mia thinks Nicole is ashamed of her. Nicole says that isn't it. She suggests getting together tomorrow. "Under one condition," says Mia, "Bring your fiancée."

Max and Chelsea wonder why everyone thinks they are a couple.

Marlena asks John not to give up. John agrees to one more session. He leaves as Marlena gets a call. She asks, "Do you know why Dr. Taylor left Minneapolis? It does seem odd doesn't it?"

Charlotte watches the tape of the session and listens as John says, "The love of my life is Marlena."

Daniel tells Chloe what happened earlier was more than physical, "I'm not through, Chloe. Not by a long shot." Daniel leaves. Chloe stares.

The audience runs out for a double-caffeinated mocha latte.

Is it me or has Victor become endearing like NuJohn? Yikes, that means they must be firing the actor that plays him. Maybe Victor is going to get the writer that had been writing for NuJohn?

If it's Monday, it's Lumi Cyinide capsules to go around!

Ohmygod - was this episode a huge snorefest. I mean how does anyone make it through a work day at DOOL? Maybe they have a coffee beanry located onsite?

Prevuze, how do you do it? I would have fast forwarded the entire episode and have nothing to report.

Gee, Victor, tell us how you really feel.

Nicole comes up to Chloe and asks what's making her miserable. "I think I made a huge mistake," says Chloe.

Her first mistake was showing up for her own party, and, to make matters worse, Victor shows up. How very convenient. Does Kate really have poop for brains putting this crazed assortment of people together in one room for an engagement party? EJ and Lucas are hardly best buddies, and there was that small matter of flesh eating bacteria between Chloe and Nicole. Kate can’t be ignorant of the fact that Victor can’t stand either Chloe or Nicole, yet she has the gall to invite them into his home. Of course, Kate also invites the libidinous Dr. Dan. Instead of taking his act to a bar for a quick pick-up, he shows up at an engagement party to hit on the bride to be. Sounds like a good time to me…NOT!!!!!!

Daniel suspects all is not right with Nicole.

Nicole was his patient. Hmmm, maybe he’ll try to give her an “exam” but it will take a little hunting to find one of Nicole’s boobs.

John holds out a ticket, "Can I get my parking validated?"

I may have to watch this episode just for that line.

"And all Lucas does," says Victor, "is keep going after for women with big bazoons. Well... I guess he did make an exception for Nicole."

On occasion, Lucas likes to play a little hide and seek.

Out in the audience, the Lumi's break out the cyanide capsules.

Will they be washed down with grape Kool-Aid?

DOOL is like a hamster using an exercise wheel. Even though there has been a lot of energy used, DOOL still hasn't gone anywhere. Prevuze, thanks for a great start to the work week!

Amazing, Leslie, I was thinking just about the same thing. Just not as entertainingly.

Again, funny, funny pictures from everyone. Cfish - how did I know yours was about Chloe before even reading the caption? HAHAHA

A gal in the audience turns to the person next to her, "She probably doesn't have feelings because she's watching this episode and she's gone numb."

Except for getting to watch Victor insult everyone, what a snoozer!

The best prevuism of the day for me:
...we're moving very slowly, like those platonic plates that are under the ocean." LMAO

My HUH?! moment – the fact that Prevuze managed to stay awake long enough to post this report. What drek!! (DOOL, not Prevuze)

Prevuze, Prevuze. We feel your pain and are truly amazed you suffer through every word of this for us needy Prevuze readers! We wonder how - a Starbucks IV? Squints bag o' pills?

Great picture, Cfish! The perfect accompaniment to Victor's comment. I was hoping he'd show up and say what the rest of us are thinking.

I was trying to remember what lame "party" they had on there awhile back. Something at the pub, I think. This one was much worse. HAHAHAHA

LOL over the new addition to the Prevuze dictionary (barfgasm) and "I don't care if she gave her bone marrow to everyone in the Midwest!" "Maybe she did," says Daniel, "That would explain the STD epidemic."

Great Monday morning Prevuze!

YAY! Victor's back on the show! Maybe he & Stefano can get into something to break the monotony. Like knowing about Nicole's situation and setting her up. Now that would be interesting.

On a side note, Prevuze -- if you ever happen to "not a have a feed coming through" -- we understand. I agree with everyone else as far as wondering how in the world you manage to watch and report on this show daily. I haven't watched in forever, it's not in my DVR, and unfortunately I'm not even reading the blog daily anymore. (Not your fault and I am reading your Saturday posts!)

Prevuze, how do you do it? I would have fast forwarded the entire episode and have nothing to report.

I was going to claim that's what I did and then made up the whole story, but I think I could lose my Writers' Guild card for coming up with something that bad.

Perhaps we need to take up a Caffeine/toothpick to hold eyes open/batteries for fast forwarding collection...oh that is what the donation link is for!! (smacks hand on forehead and apologizes for her Chloe moment)

Leslie,
I have to disagree, I can't think of a party I'd rather attend.

Just finished today's episode and thanks to Prevuze all I could do was laugh at Stephanie's pizza pan earrings. I do owe you an apology, Prevuze, as I figured that was an exaggeration. Not by much. Maybe she's trying to be Cher back in the 70's. HAHHAHA

i like prevuze better than the show. at least there's some humor and fun to prevuze. dool is just about dead and if they don't revive some good stories and new situations it's gonna sink.

I saw those earrings also and could not believe them.Honestly where do you think she got them KMart. Talk about budget cuts.I totally agree,this show is like a sinking ship. I just hope that prevuze doesn't bale. Great Prevuze thanks so much for sparring us once again. bamafan.c

I'm a little confused..the pic of Chloe getting the glaucoma exam from Dr. Dan....why is his shirt off? Are we to think that they ended up under the sheets together?

Thanks Prevuze for keeping us interested in DOOL with your humor..I would not have anything to do with it otherwise.

I have to disagree with Leslie too! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall at this party! So many secrets and awkward moments...Oh, what perverted pleasure! And to hear Victor throw down insults was priceless. I'm liking Victor more and more. The only thing missing is the dancing. Daniel cutting in on Lucas and Chloe would have been the icing on the cake!

I have always watched DOOL sporadically (and now never), so I may not remember everything correctly. Why does Victor put up with Kate, but not Nicole and Chloe? Didn't Kate try to kill him at one time, and didn't Lucas and Kate try to kill Sami? When Nic and Vic first married I thought they got along, then something happened (don't know what) and Vic wouldn't let Nicole leave the house or something like that, so she tried to kill him. I guess I don't understand why everyone hates Nicole, because I don't think she is any worse than Sami, Chloe, Kate, etc. I know she's no saint, but neither are they. I think Sami and Kate especially, are just as manipulative as Nicole. Sorry for the long post and all the questions, but this show messes with my brain!

There's good ho's and bad ho's. Nicole is definitely a bad one, and now she's managed to attach herself to EJ because she got him stuck in an elevator this summer, and the only way he can get rid of her is if her fake baby belly falls off, or if EJ decides to wear a Nick-ho-derm patch on his arm.

I don't think Stephanie's earrings came from Kmart. I think she just swiped them off of a windchime hanging from someone's front porch.
She looked like a disco diva from the 70s. Take her to Funky Town. Chloe calling herself "Slut" in the mirror reminded me of a scene from the Andy Griffith show where Floyd the barber kept staring at himself in a mirror calling himself a cad. Then, Andy told him to quit talking to himself in that looking glass.
