The Big Mo' With The Nun

Sister Teresa prays for the health of Sami's baby and for the sanity of the mother. Dr. Baker brings the baby in and announces she is healthy. He hands her to Sami to hold. Sami gives the kid a strange look. Dr. Baker asks, "Is there a problem?"

"This is Screamantha Brady," says Sister Teresa, "There is always a problem."

Maggie and Chloe have a staredown in the hallway. Maggie sneers, "You'd better re-button your blouse."

Bo and Hope cuddle at a table in the pub. They bicker about the case. Hope wonders why Bo wants her to stay away from Kayla. "We can't handle another one of your shopping trips together," says Bo, "Our credit cards are maxed out." Suddenly, Bo hallucinates. He tells her to see Kayla another time.

Kayla tends to Sleazo, "I swear I've seen your face before." Sleazo attacks.

Rafe struggles. He flashes back to the fight and Sleazo's escape, "Sami... Sami..."

Nicole tells Miss Junior-Junior she is not Sami's baby, "It's like Sami never existed. It's just you, me and Daddy. Assuming Daddy is dumb enough to buy it."

Sami asks, "That's my baby? It can't be. It's not crying like a scalded banshee."

Sister Teresa assures her the kid is hers. Sami is worried that the kid didn't cry and then Baker whisked her away. Baker tells her sometimes it's normal for a baby not to cry. Sami's brain is incapable of grasping the fact that someone might not cry, but she accepts it, "I guess I'm not myself at the moment," says Sami, "since I'm not hysterical." She takes the baby and remedies that, "Blub... blub... blub... My perfect little girl."

"My perfect little girl," says Nicole. She sets her in her cradle and decides to call EJ and leave a message at home. EJ comes in as the phone rings. He picks up at the last minute. Nicole is halfway through the message but shuts up when EJ says hello. Nicole scowls.

Daniel rushes in to find Sleazo choking Kayla. Dr. Miracle grabs Kayla, only takes time to cop a quick feel and then restrains Sleazo.

Maggie wants to talk. Chloe wants to get on a plane to Timbuktu. She hems, haws and makes excuses. "Don't insult me by lying," scolds Maggie, "It's a little past obvious don't you think?" Maggie blows through a chain of accusations, "I saw you and Daniel kissing."

Chloe whines, "Maggie... if you'd give me a chance to explain."

Maggie says, "You really can't." She runs off to tell the world.

Rafe performs emergency surgery on himself, uses his belt as a tourniquet and goes for a stroll.

Depressive Sami has left us for a while as manic Sami gushes over Mia Junior. She decides she needs a name. Suddenly depressive Sami returns and decides she isn't safe, "This isn't over! This isn't over by a long shot!"

EJ pounds the phone and asks Nicole if she is there. Nicole hangs up, "He was supposed to be in Italy. Why is nothing ever easy? Think! What am I going to do?" Suddenly, Lucy comes up with a scheme. Baker comes in and Nicole tells him she has to stay at the clinic, "You need to get rid of Sami."

"Who," asks Baker.

Nicole is exasperated, "Sami! You know... the big mo' with the nun. Just tell her to go home. And I need a room."

Bo says, "I've been thinking..."

"I wondered where all the smoke was coming from," says Hope. Bo says he thinks he and Hope should do something together, with their clothes on. He tells Hope he's jealous because she's been ignoring him lately. Hope makes threats and asks what it's all about.

"I miss you," says Bo, "Choke.

The orderlies work to subdue Sleazo while Daniel brings a sedative. Sleazo settles and Daniel orders restraints. He turns to Kayla, "What happened?"

Kayla babbles.

"Well," says Daniel, "Whatever happened, something sure kicked him into orbit." Suddenly, Sleazo gasps and goes catatonic.

CODE BLUE!

Kayla panics, "Quick! Somebody call a doctor!"

Kayla watches while Dr. Feel-grab-and-perform-miracles-in-one-fell-swoop takes over.

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

"Is the patient responding," asks Daniel.

"No," says a nurse, "But he's charged up enough to provide emergency power to the hospital's east wing."

Sami blithers and tells Sister Teresa they can't stay there, "What about the baby," asks Sister Teresa.

"Baby - schmabee," says Sami, "We have to get out of here."

Nicole tells Baker EJ is home and things have to go like clockwork, "Get Sami out of here, call EJ and tell him you're delivering!"

"Shouldn't we tell him you're the one who's delivering?"

Nicole nukes, "Tell that blonde bitch to hit the road or do I have to remind you what will happen to you if this doesn't work?"

Baker rushes into Sami's room, which is empty.

Chloe chases Maggie down and begs for a chance to explain. Maggie is disgusted. She's already seen an advance screening of this episode. Chloe assures her she and Daniel didn't plan this, it just happened. Maggie tells her nothing 'just happens' and she will have to suffer the consequences.

EJ calls and screams at someone to track the call he just got, "THIS COULD BE A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH!"

"I zee. Ve succhest choo reinstall vindows," says the uncaring voice in the New Delhi call center as he reads from his troubleshooting script.

Nicole stops short of explaining why manipulative Sami had to leave. She tells Dr. Baker to get busy and call EJ. She dials and hands him her phone. Baker tells EJ Nicole is in labor and he needs to get to the clinic.

EJ protests the fact that Nicole isn't at a hospital but says he's on his way, "Tell her I love her."

Dr. Baker hands Nicole the phone and rolls his eyes, "He loves you."

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

"CLEAR!"

ZAP!

We get signs of life from Sleazo. Daniel once again has raised the dead and hands things over to the peons to do the mop-up work. He wonders why Sleazo was strangling Kayla. "Maybe it was something I said," says Kayla, "He's deranged. There is something about him... I'll be right back."

Outside, Kayla calls Steve and leaves a message. She wants him to call her about the sketch he showed her. Then she calls Hope and asks for Bo. Bo isn't there so she asks Hope to come to the hospital. Hope bumps into Maggie and Chloe on the way out.

Chloe begs Maggie to keep quiet, which is about the same thing as begging a hungry dog not to eat. Chloe promises this will never happen again. With the incredible timing you only find on DOOL, Lucas comes up to them, "Hey, why so serious?"

Maggie looks up, "Hey, why so clueless?"

Rafe searches the convent and asks Sister Mary Whoozits where Sami and Sister Teresa are. Sister MW tells him they left.

Dr. Baker tells Nicole he wouldn't count on his staff keeping their mouths shut.

Maggie puts on a happy face and tells Lucas to sit down. Chloe says they're talking about Kate, "She isn't out of the woods, which, by the way, is the only place Daniel and I haven't done the nasty." Maggie asks Lucas for a ginger ale.

Loserclueless turns to Chloe, "And would you like something, dear?"

"A triple martini." Lucas leaves and Maggie and Chloe argue.

Hope arrives and Kayla tells her about Sleazo coming in and choking her. She says she thinks he looks like the sketch of the mayor's killer.

Sleazo struggles.

Sister Mary Whoozits runs to get the note Sister Teresa left for Rafe. Sami and Sister Teresa come in and we have the happy reunion, as well as a baby moment.

Nicole and Baker argue. Baker says he has thought of something that could make EJ see this in a new light, something beyond her control. Nicole bites, "OK, so what didn't I think of?" Baker tells her sometimes the resemblance between a mother and child stuns him and this baby looks like her real mother, "I'd pray your luck holds up." He leaves.

Rafe says he thought he would never see Sami again, "But I guess I wasn't that lucky." Sami thanks him for taking care of her. Rafe tries to pry a word in and tells her they are not safe. He struggles.

Sami gasps, "You're as white as a sheet." Rafe goes down.

Chloe and Maggie continue to argue. Actually, Maggie argues and Chloe begs. Lucas comes back with the drinks. He says he talked to Kate who demanded they set a date for the wedding. "We can stop by and talk to Kate about that tomorrow," says Chloe, "If I survive."

Lucas gets a call and leaves. Chloe says what no human being has ever been able to say before, "Maggie, thank you for keeping your mouth shut."

Maggie snorts, "What are you going to do about Daniel?"

Daniel gets a page and leaves. Suddenly, Sleazo rushes out of his room and grabs Kayla, "Anybody gets in my way I'll break her neck!"

Chloe says she will make Daniel face reality and will keep her hands off him. Maggie says she will be watching and if Chloe strays she will go to Lucas. Maggie leaves.

Outside the pub, Bo gets a message from Hope.

Hope points her gun at Sleazo, "Salem PD!"

When he stops laughing, Sleazo says, "You shoot and she dies!"

Sami and Sister Teresa nurse Rafe. Sister Teresa goes for Mary Margaret. Sami begs Rafe to wake up.

EJ rushes into the clinic and barges into Nicole's room. Nicole sits in bed holding Miss Junior-Junior. She gives a nervous smile, "EJ... you finally made it."

Daddy smiles, "Hey..."

"Don't worry," says Nicole, "I've already lined a sitter up for tonight."

Even if EJ thinks he sees something familiar in this baby, it won't translate to his brain that it's Sami's kid - he'll probably just think the baby looks like her half brother Johnny because he is the daddy of both. Wonder how long they will drag this out - I don't want Sami (and EJ) to find out about Nicole's baby switch when the kids are on their way to college (which could be in a few months ala Dool's usual way of handling things).

Sister Teresa prays for the health of Sami's baby and for the sanity of the mother.

Hopefully we can get her to pray for the sanity of the audience too.

"This is Screamantha Brady."

Screamantha – Oh my, that certainly is perfectly concise!!!

"It's just you, me and Daddy. Assuming Daddy is dumb enough to buy it."

This is DOOL. Of course he is.

Baker rushes into Sami's room, which is empty.

Wouldn’t you know it. Sami skips out of paying her bill. She must have an HMO, and the clinic isn’t in the network.

Maggie tells her nothing 'just happens' and she will have to suffer the consequences.

…and so will the audience.

"I zee. Ve succhest choo reinstall vindows," says the uncaring voice in the New Delhi call center as he reads from his troubleshooting script.

At some point, we have all felt EJ’s pain.

Lucas comes up to them, "Hey, why so serious?"

Maggie looks up, "Hey, why so clueless?"


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

Sleazo rushes out of his room and grabs Kayla, "Anybody gets in my way I'll break her neck!"

Dr. Feel-her-up has already saved Kayla from Sleazo. Is hospital funding so tight they can’t afford restraints for violent patients?

After all the witless protection program nonsense, Sleazo is going to end up dead before he can reveal who hired him to kill the mayor. This will be just another DOOL loose end that will flap in the wind for all of eternity. Well, at least it will have a lot of company.

Prevuze, thanks for a great TGIF/TGIP update!!!

Woo HOO! We're switching babies! At mach speed!

Will somebody please just shoot Sleazo. It was funny at first, but now it's quickly going to agonizing.

Maggie says, "You really can't."
Not that I don't applaud Maggie and her putting her busybody (originally written as bustybody) skills to work in punishing Chloe, but did she not just promise silence or something??

"THIS COULD BE A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH!"
So much enthusiasm for what could have been a prank call. But... maybe I am misunderstanding something.

She says she thinks he looks like the sketch of the mayor's killer.
I have ALWAYS thought that sketch looked like Roman. I don't even see much of a resemblance between Sleazo and the sketch.

Baker tells her sometimes the resemblance between a mother and child stuns him and this baby looks like her real mother, "I'd pray your luck holds up." He leaves.
It's a baby, it looks like an old bald man, they all do.

Um... Sleazo should should have been restrained right after he tried to strangle someone. Wasn't Stefano restrained though he was paralyzed? I love how Salem hospital works.

Also Happy belated Birthday Bulldog.

I really enjoyed the pics and the great prevuizms today but this baby switching nonsense is driving me crazy! This is insane! Now that the switch is finally revealed I hope someone steps up to the plate and lets Sami know about it. You would think that between a mother's intuition, the FBI, and the Catholic church they can figure out the connection between the crooked doctor and his Psycho patient. Grrrrrrr!

Bulldog - I would also like to pass along belated birthday wishes. I hope it was a good one!

Thank to everyone for the good birthday wishes! It was - I didn't have to go into work.

I'm with everyone else on the Sleazo and no restraints thing. For Pete's sake, if Kayla even suspected he might be the guy in the sketch she should've called security and had him restrained immediately. But then we wouldn't have the dramatic "Bo's vision coming true" thing with the gun to Kayla's head. Anyone who thinks either she or Hope are going to die speak up...

- - - - - c r i c k e t s - - -

I do think the little girl they showed as Allie does sort of look like Sami. But I'm with you, Klaus, I never see any resemblance in a newborn baby and their parents. I think people just see it because they want to.

My favorite Prevuism: "Hope points her gun at Sleazo, "Salem PD!" When he stops haughing, Sleazo says, "You shoot and she dies!" Sleazo is smarter than all the rest of 'em.

And it wasn't italicized but I'm sure the line "She isn't out of the woods, which by the way, is the only place Daniel and I haven't done the nasty." was supposed to be. How funny if she'd actually said it. HAHAHA

Thanks, Prevuze, for guiding us into the weekend in a good way. TGIP! :D

Addendum: Sleazo and Restraints

In the interests of truth in reporting* I have to inform you all that they indeed did restrain Sleazo. Later, Daniel made the comment, "He's fighting those restraints like he's on PCP or something." Not that it wasn't important, but we just forgot to mention it. I'm a 12 wpm typist watching a 200wpm show. The only reason I can keep up with it is that 195 of those wpms are drivel or flashbacks.

Anyway, this of course begs the question, if they restrained Sleazo so well, how is it that he got out of the restraints in order to attack Kayla? I guess we're supposed to assume he was so hopped up on PCP or whatever that he had super strength and somehow broke the restraints.

Now I'm trying to apply logic to this show and my head is starting to spin.

*Here at Prevuze we believe strongly in truth in reporting. Our motto is, "If it's anywhere close to the truth, we're not reporting it."

Okay, once again the writers all must be men, you don't just get up right after having a baby, it is too TMI to explain, but you just don't. And where were her IVs, did she just pull those out herself??? or did she never have them......

I am so glad Maggie knows, get that whole thing over with, Who Cares !! The whole SL is stupid. Nobody was really getting the Lucas/Chloe thing anyways.

I think we will find out later that Mia is Nicole's daughter from her marriage to Melanie's father (forgot his name) that she gave up years ago. It would then turn out that she gave up her own granddaughter to Sammi and the convent.

"you don't just get up right after having a baby"

Not to mention that it was supposed to be a complicated birth. I know it's a soap and I can handle some suspension of disbelief, but there's suspension and then there's just plain swinging it from the rafters and whacking it like a pinata.

Childbirth looks... traumatic. I don't know why any woman would want to get up afterwards anyway.

Just got back from out-of-town. Plane-ride purgatory. Sort of fried. However I had to read Prevuze before heading off to crash.

Loved all the prevuisms, pictures and comments, but Heather had the observation that really has me chuckling:

Loved it!!

Childbirth is...traumatic. Most women want to see the baby and pass out for a few days afterwards. But not on Dool...Sami has more energy than the Energizer bunny! That's because she didn't really give birth...
