Girls Behaving Badly

Phillip listens as Nicole and Brady whisper about their little caper. Brady leaves and Phillip smirks, "This is gonna be a great day."

Melanie answers the door to find Stephanie standing there, "What do you want."

BITCHSLAP!

Melanie spews her evil laugh and makes threats.

Maggie rushes up and tells Daniel Lucas has been drinking and wonders if Daniel has seen him. Daniel wonders why he should have seen Lucas. Maggie fesses up that she told Lucas about Daniel's affair with Chloe. Daniel says, "All right, if he's not here then he... OMG! Chloe!"

Lucas the lush pounds and rambles on about Chloe and Daniel having an affair and laughing behind his back. Chloe heads for the door and...

KABLOOIE!

She runs out into the hall and finds Lucas cold and dead.

Stephanie asks if Melanie hosed the table down before she started making her sandwich. Melanie arm locks Stephanie and taunts. EJ walks through the open door and orders Melanie to back off.

Nicole assures Sydney everything will be OK as she hears the doorbell. Phillip stands there saying he is there to see EJ but figured he wans there since Nicole was cavorting around the font yard with Brady. He invites himself in, "I'm just getting to the good part, honey."

EJ muses, "Well, well, well. Girls behaving badly." He asks Stephanie to leave so she can conduct business with Melanie. Melanie and Stephanie toss a few final catty remarks at each other as Stephanie leaves. EJ tells Melanie she is about to become wealthy and doesn't need a lawsuit on her hands. He has two contracts for her. Melanie doesn't want to sign, "I have to think about this."

"The time for thinking is over," says EJ, "That's why the two of us are involved in this transaction instead of someone competent." Melanie is reluctant. "You don't play games with me," threatens EJ, "Not unless you wish to lose... I believe the expression is... 'big-time.'"

Melanie says, "So I guess a lot of people in Salem play games with you. That could explain why there are so many losers around here."

Phillip wonders what Nicole and Brady are hiding. Nicole insists she and Brady are just friends. Phillip digs for info.

Daniel calls Chloe and gets no answer. Chloe searches for a cell phone. She finds Lucas' phone but it, like Lucas, is dead. She forgets about a phone and starts CPR on Lucas, "Don't die now!"

EJ advises Melanie she's playing in the big leagues. He walks her over to the table where he has the contracts laid out, "Sign here, here and here, where the yellow sticky flags are. You know, the guy who invented those things made millions. I wonder what you'll do when you make your fortune." Melanie is still reluctant, but EJ intimidates her and insists she sign. Melanie signs and tells EJ she's still afraid of Phillip. EJ assures her the DiMeras will watch over her if she cooperates, "On the flip side if you fail to cooperate we will forcefully remind you of this agreement." She gives him the other half of the formula. EJ tucks it away. Melanie asks for her money.

Phillip threatens to go to EJ and tell him about Brady. Nicole says there is nothing to tell. Phillip wonders what Brady meant when he told her he would never tell EJ. Nicole says she asked Brady to promise not to tell EJ what she did to Chloe. Phillip doesn't buy it. Nicole sneers, "You don't know anything. You've got bupkis."

"I've got EJ with all the DiMera ruthlessness," says Phillip, "If I tell him something is going on he won't stop until he finds out. Phillip starts to call. Nicole grabs the phone.

Chloe panics and blithers. She finds her phone and makes the emergency call, "He's not breathing! He has no pulse! There's no brain activity, but with him that's normal."

"Ma'am," says the attendant, "Did you want to give us the address we're supposed to come to?"

Chloe hags up and prays for God to bring Lucas back from the dead.

Stephanie sits on a park bench and bawls. Brady finds her and, of course, butts in. He figures this is about Phillip. She tells him Melanie and she had a fight and Phillip told her in front of Melanie he didn't want her. Brady agrees Phillip is a jerk. Stephanie agrees that she's an idiot. She takes off.

Brady gasps, "Wow, Phillip you screwed up big-time."

Meanwhile, Phillip continues to pester Nicole, "EJ has been a bit of a problem."

Nicole asks, "Did he outfox you already?"

Phillip says, "And you, Nicole, are going to help make it go away."

Chloe completely falls apart. Lucas hasn't been breathing for fifteen minutes. If it were anyone else, he'd be brain dead by now, but with Lucas, it doesn't matter. Chloe wails and makes a deal with God, "If you bring him back to life I'll give up Daniel and be the mother Lucas' children need."

Lucas staggers in, "Chloe..."

Chloe is shocked. "What did you expect," asks God, "I sure didn't want him and he's too dumb to send to hell."

Daniel heads for home. Maggie continues her lecture as he leaves.

Prevuze

Melanie counts her money. EJ tells her Phillip will be really upset about this, so EJ and Stefano will keep a close eye on things. Melanie rants about men, "They push you around and after they get what they want, they get all protective. It's like leaving an extra $20 on the nightstand, you know. It's a man's world. I accept it. Doesn't mean I have to like it." She fans the money she's holding, "I think I should buy a safe deposit box. Do you think they come in pink?"

Melanie goes upstairs. EJ turns to walk out and mumbles, "Sydney, I'm not letting you out of the house until you're 40." He bumps into Brady on the way out.

Nicole insists she doesn't meddle in EJ's business. "Yeah," says Phillip, "you just sit by the fire and knit." He wonders what will happen to all the love and trust she has built up if EJ finds she is hiding something.

"I won't betray EJ," says Nicole, "Or at least anything in comparison to what I've done wouldn't count as betrayal."

"It seems you already have betrayed him," says Phillip.

Lucas staggers. Chloe begs him to stay in there. Daniel rushes in, "What the hell happened?"

"With all that alcohol on my breath," says Lucas, "I knew I shouldn't have lit a match."

We hear that familiar sound of sirens in the background arriving way too late to be of any real help.

EJ and Brady trade wisecracks. EJ tells him it's none of his business why he's there. He leaves and Melanie comes down. Brady wants to talk about the Alternative Fuels Project. Melanie doesn't want to, "Phillip is messing with people's heads and he will pay for it."

"If it's your head he's messing with," says Brady, "At least the price will be low."

The paramedics wheel Lucas out. Chloe snivels and bawls. Daniel tells Chloe Lucas knows about their affair. "I know that," says Chloe, "When he stood at the door screaming about it at the top of his lungs, that's what tipped me off." Daniel says he'll deal with all of this mess since Chloe has been through so much. Poor widdle Chloe. Daniel reiterates his love for her. He moves in for some post-catastrophe smooching.

Daniel says he doesn't think it would be a good idea for Chloe to show up at the hospital. He leaves, but Chloe vows not to hide any more.

Phillip brings up Melanie, "If you can't get EJ to back off I will tell him everything I saw. He surveys the DiMera mansion and Sydney. You have certainly got a lot here. You will succeed or it's all gone, baby, gone." He leaves, "Call me."

Stephanie is at the pub. She calls and leaves a message for Chelsea. Melanie bumps into her and tries to smooth things over. She tells her nothing happened between her and Phillip.

"Oooo," mocks Stephanie, "I'm so glad you're being honest with me. Let's be BFF's."

Melanie whimpers, "You can hate me if you want."

"Glad I have your permission," snorts Stephanie.

They wheel Lucas into the ER and Maggie panics. She accuses Daniel of beating him up. Chloe walks in and Daniel has a cow when he sees her. Chloe says she isn't hiding any more. She refuses to leave as Daniel goes to check on Lucas.

Maggie gloms onto Chloe for details. Suddenly, Chloe remembers her pact with the Lord, "I made a promise but He can't keep me to it!"

Maggie asks, "Who is he?" Inquiring minds want to know. Maggie wants to know whether she has an inquiring mind or not.

Nicole tells Sydney she's doing all this for her and her daddy. EJ walks in. Nicole says she was telling Sydney about men and how awful they are, except for her daddy. Daddy says he's terrified of Sydney growing up given his meeting with some girl. Nicole guesses it's Melanie. EJ tells her he just bested the Kiriakis family.

Nicole gasps, "Did you make them angry?"

"Angry," asks EJ, "That would be a crude understatement." Nicole begs him not to cross them.

Phillip arrives back at the Kiriakis mansion and finds Stephanie sitting silently and steaming, kind of like Mother in Psycho. Stephanie says Melanie told her it was all a big show when Phillip seemed interested in her, "I'm here to say goodbye."

"Just like I predicted," says Phillip, "It's a good day."

A nurse comes to get Maggie and tells him she can visit Lucas. "Which room is he in," asks Maggie.

"That depends on which part of him you want to visit," says the nurse.

As she leaves, Maggie tells Chloe to sit down, "You don't look well. You should see a doctor."

"That's what caused this mess in the first place," says Chloe.

Chloe sits and wonders if her contract with God has any loopholes.

Daniel comes out, "It's the damnedest thing I've ever seen. He has alcohol poisoning, but that's it. It's like the explosion never happened. It's as close to a miracle as I've ever seen." They call Daniel away.

Chloe realizes she has her answer, "Now I know what I have to do."

Stephanie says she thinks Phillip would sell his soul to close a business deal. She can't be with someone who would do that. Phillip protests, "I love you."

"That's what makes the so sad," says Stephanie, "That and the unbelievable idiocy of this plot."

Nicole urges EJ to let Titan win this one. She says she's doing this to protect their family. EJ wonders what's going on.

BITCHSLAP!


Stephanie is my new hero. Hit her harder for the rest of us!!

"The time for thinking is over," says EJ, "That's why the two of us are involved in this transaction instead of someone competent."

…and that’s why this whole scene was written by the DOOL scribes.

EJ advises Melanie she's playing in the big leagues.

…and she’s been signed by the Detroit Lions. OK, OK, Prevuze, you went there yesterday. Quite frankly, you did a much better job but I just couldn’t help myself.

"He's not breathing! He has no pulse! There's no brain activity, but with him that's normal."

"Ma'am," says the attendant, "Did you want to give us the address we're supposed to come to?"


Details, details.

He wonders what will happen to all the love and trust she has built up if EJ finds she is hiding something.

The only trust Nicole cares about building is in a trust fund.

Chloe says she isn't hiding any more. She refuses to leave as Daniel goes to check on Lucas.

Why isn’t Aunt Maggie insisting on another doctor for Lucas? If I knew what Maggie knows, I wouldn’t let Dr. Goose-A-Gal touch him.

Melanie thinks she’s such a smart cookie but she signs away the alternate fuel project without her own lawyer reviewing the contract. Wasn’t Mickey available? This appears to be a very straight forward transaction so why is Melanie being given cash? There is no reason to keep this off of the DiMera books. They would want to know if they are making or losing money with the project. This would also be important to Melanie because I would hope the contract that Melanie signed gives her a percentage of the profits.

TGIF and TGFP. Have a great one everybody!!!

I was wondering, too, why Melanie didn't have the smarts to say I want my lawyer to look over this contract before signing. Got to give it to EJ, he got her to sign one which is what Phillip should have done from the get-go.

I love that Chloe just made this big promise to God and then started to look for loopholes. HAHAHAHA

And that stupid Nicole!! EJ's already seen her and Brady together a hundred times what's one more? I'd hand the phone to Phillip and tell him to go for it.

LOL over "When he stood at the door screaming about it at the top of his lungs, that's what tipped me off." and"There's no brain activity, but with him that's normal."

Great Prevuze and we finally made it to Friday! TGIP!

Once more the pictures & captions are just icing on the cake. Loved the reasons for Nicole's nightmare and the 11th Commandment. That, by the way, should be carved on Salemites' foreheads.

If it were anyone else, he'd be brain dead by now, but with Lucas, it doesn't matter.

Here’s a rhetorical question – why does Chloe need to call for help? With the explosion I’d think the place would be crawling with emergency responders not to mention curious on-lookers. Was it a very small, quiet explosion that no one else heard??

We hear that familiar sound of sirens in the background arriving way too late to be of any real help.

Ah, well that answers my previous question. So the next rhetorical question would be, "How did Dr. Dan get there so quickly?"

Dr. Goose-a-Gal LOL, Leslie!

All this and a BITCHSLAP too, thanks for the Friday send-off, Prevuze!

Leslie, I don't even know if Melanie has the rights. What with everyone taking control of it at random intervals.


Melanie spews her evil laugh and makes threats.

Haha. I love her evil laugh. Evil is just the word I'd describe it as.

Stephanie asks if Melanie hosed the table down before she started making her sandwich.
That's actually a legit question. Philip should purchase a new table for Maggie.

Stephanie asks if Melanie hosed the table down before she started making her sandwich.
Argh, why is there always a problem. Does no one's plan work on this show. Damn.

"If you bring him back to life I'll give up Daniel and be the mother Lucas' children need."
LMAO. This show is so ridiculous.

"Sydney, I'm not letting you out of the house until you're 40."
Living in a house a mother who infected someone with flesh eating bacteria, a father who doubles as a rapist and a sociopathic grandfather, I'm sure she's already slated to be the bell of the ball.

Chloe realizes she has her answer, "Now I know what I have to do."
Chances are she won't tell Lucas about this 'damned if you do, damned if your don't' bet.

with emergency responders not to mention curious on-lookers. Was it a very small, quiet explosion that no one else heard??
They probably know it's better to stay inside, lest they run into one of Daniels and Chloe's glomp sessions.

Lmao, I just realized the 12 year old scotch Maggie was about to order yesterday is probably older than EJ himself prior SORAS.

CHLoeme and Rapemi make it stop.
Maggie tell Lucas the truth.
I want Will and Sami come back to visit Lucas.
Stephanie is going win the fight.

Sami left Lucas brain-dead & Chloe does not have a clue. Why else would the Diva be with zombie Lucas and pining after Grope-a-Doc.

I was impressed once again with Chloe's ever variant facial expressions in her acting ability. When told that Kate was in remission, she had the exact same, confused, stunned look that she always has for everything as she said, " That's great." Way to convince us of your emotions, Chloe. Ever notice how she blows out a deep frustration breath? She always daintily blows her air downward. How proper. Does she need a tic tac or something? Oh, while I'm on a Chloe rant, answer me...how many women wearing THAT much makeup would come straight from being tossed across the room in a gas leak explosion and still look like they stepped out of an L.A. beauty salon? Someone asked how Dan got to the apartment so fast. Don't you know that ever house, hospital, clinic, mansion, bar and apartment is only steps away from the pier and dock? That's why you rarely see anyone in a car. The entire city of Salem is actually located on a cul de sac.

Thank you, Anonymous. Never thought of the cul de sac set-up.

I just figured you rarely saw anyone in a car since getting in a car there (race car or otherwise) seems to inevitably lead to an accident. LOL

Now I'll be watching to see her frustrated blowing air downward thing! HAHAHAHA

She must've come out of the same salon Kate did after her chemo.
