The Village Slut

Stephanie comes onto the Kiriakis mansion terrace. She finds Phillip and tells him she heard him talking to Victor the evening before, "I heard you tell him you wouldn't tell me about the family business." Phillip tells her it's to protect her. As they touch, Stephanie looks down at his hands...

BLOOD!

Stephanie wakes up and looks at sleeping Phillip. The ole dream trick. It works every time.

Melanie stands in Maggie's kitchen and contemplates the bottle-o-pills as Nathan walks up and asks what she is doing.

Kate works on a recording of Daniel saying he loves his job at the hospital. She edits everything he says and changes it to "I love Chloe." Then she closes her computer and smiles.

Daniel jogs through the streets of Salem.

Lucas and Chloe walk and talk about all the things they have bought for the new house.

Time and space converge in the streets of Salem. Like two particles in a super-collider, Daniel and Chloe run into each other, and meld into one giant human quark. Lucas watches the phenomenon, "WHOA! WATCH IT, GUYS!"

Rafe shows up at the DiMera mansion. Nicole answers the door and Rafe tells her he's there to say he's sorry.

Stephanie sits up in bed and broods. Phillip wakes and senses something is wrong. He avoids the sage advice in the Guy Manual and asks anyway, "Is something wrong?"

"I had a bad dream," says Stephanie, "I dreamed I had a dream and you didn't ask me about it and I didn't get the chance to bore you to tears telling you every stupid detail."

So, Rafe has said he's sorry, but true to form on DOOL, he'll take the next hour to say it over and over again. Nicole invites him in and the journey over well-trodden ground begins. She escorts Rafe into the rumpus room. He apologizes AGAIN for asking all those questions at the cemetery. Nicole says she was so shook up over Grace dying because Grace was Sydney's half sister, "And, at the moment, you are my half-wit, so are you gonna tell me why you are really here?"

Oops. my error, the sub-atomic particle involved in the collision wasn't a quark. It was Chloe's brain. Daniel and Chloe pry themselves apart. Daniel sees the mule named Lucas carrying a load of shopping bags and Chloe explains they have been shopping for the new house. Lucas chimes in, "You have to check it out sometime."

"No," says Daniel, "I can't do that."

Melanie tells Nathan to mind his own business as Maggie walks in. Melanie stomps out. Nathan turns to Maggie, "Why do you let Melanie live here?"

"Are you kidding," says Mags, "She alone could give me enough material to give my gossi... bridge club something to talk about forever."

Prevuze

On the terrace, Phillip offers to call Lucas and cancel their breakfast appointment if Stephanie isn't OK. She insists she is fine and tells him about the conversation she heard last night. Phillip tells her it's just boring business. Stephanie decides she's peachy-keen and tells him to go to his appointment with Lucas. Phillip smooches her cheek and leaves. Stephanie wipes off his smooch and stares.

Rafe AGAIN insists he's there to apologize. Nicole says he wasn't that bad at the cemetery, but knows he's not there to apologize. Rafe says she's right and produces Johnny's favorite book. "You can't give it to him now," says Nicole, "He's with EJ at day camp. He really gets a loves day camp. So does Johnny." Nicole wonders why Sami is handing over the book if she's fighting for custody.

Rafe explains magnanimous Sami just wants Johnny to be happy, "By the way, I ran into someone you know... Mia."

Nicole thinks, "I Hope he means he ran into her like Chelsea ran into Zack."

Daniel clarifies, "I meant I can't see the house anytime soon. I'm just too busy to break away."

"But not too busy to run through the streets of Salem and wast time talking to us, I see," says Lucas, "Well, I guess the house isn't going anywhere."

"I'm glad you figured that out," says Daniel, "It's pretty obvious to most of us."

"Not me," says Chloe.


"Well," says Loserclueless, "Come over when you can. Chloe will fix dinner."

"And I'll spill it over you," says Chloe. Dang! Chloe beats Prevuze to the punch.

Lucas says he has to run to meet Phillip. He leaves, giving the viewers yet another treasured Chloe-Daniel moment.

Daniel apologizes to Chloe for possibly insulting Lucas. "How did you insult him," asks Chloe.

"I think he knew all along houses really don't go anywhere on their own."

"You're kind, but you give him too much credit," says Chloe.
She gets a call from Kate who wants to discuss the next Hearth and Home show. She says she's at the Java Café and wants Chloe there now.

Nathan says he knows what Melanie did to Nick. He wonders why Maggie is so forgiving. Maggie blows up, "Stop jumping to wrong and stupid conclusions! That's my job."

Melanie joins Stephanie on the terrace. She bounces, squeals and tells her she got into nursing school, "I think I've found my calling!"

"Is annoyance a new nursing specialty," asks Stephanie.

The girls go ga-ga about how well they are now getting along. Concerned Melanie asks, "Are you having any more headaches."

Stephanie says, "Except for the fact that you are here, nothing that the aspirin can't take care of."

Melanie holds up the bottle-o-pills, "Or a few of these?"

Chloe decides she's not going to take Kate's guff any more. She calls Kate back and says she can't make it. Kate is upset. She rolls her eye, "We'll get together when you're free."

"But you're busy," says Chloe, "So how will I know when you are free?"

"I'm never free," says Kate, "I always make them pay for it one way or another."

Chloe hangs up and Daniel congratulates her for having the gumption to stand up to Kate. "Kate is getting more demanding and obnoxious every day," says Chloe.

Now it's Daniel's turn to roll his eyes, "Gee, I hadn't noticed."

Chloe says she has to go by the Kiriakis mansion and pick something up. She says she worries about both Victor and Kate, "Could Victor be any more obvious about how much he hates me?"

"I've come close to calling him on it," says Daniel.

"It wouldn't do any good," says Chloe, "I'm getting used to it. But thank you for (say it with her) being there for me. It makes me feel... yeah." Chloe really knows how to describe her feelings intelligently, doesn't she?

Phillip congratulates Carlo as they talk baseball in the pub, "You're a real star, Carlo."

Lucas comes in. He and Phillip find a table and sit down. Phillip asks Lucas to be his best man at the wedding. "No way in hell," says Lucas.

Maggie gives Nathan the rundown on what made Nick go nuts, "Nick was in the wrong not Melanie. He got a light sentence because Melanie spoke up for him. She was courageous and eloquent. She's smarter and kinder than most people give her credit for."

"She'd have to be," says Nathan, "No human could really be as dumb and nasty as people think she is."

"Maybe you should apologize," says Maggie, "It has been known to work."
Nathan is convinced.

Maggie wraps up another case and turns to her trusted sidekick, "Our job is done here, Tonto. We need to move on to the badlands and do some meddlin' there."

Maggie leaves. Nathan isn't sure exactly what just hit him, "Who was that masked meddler?"

Stephanie brushes off the pills, and then they talk about her new car and her new life with Phillip. Melanie asks if she can do anything for her, "I thought you should have the bottle-o-pills just in case. But if you don't want 'em... Fat chance. Stephanie grabs the pills like a hungry dog goes for a t-bone.

Nicole gives Rafe her "troubled teens volunteer" story.

"She's a drug addict," says Rafe.

"That is not true," insists Nicole.

Melanie says, "If you need 'em you need 'em. There is nothing to be ashamed about." Stephanie tells her Phillip doesn't know she's taking the pills.

"I thought you told each other everything," says Melanie.

"I can't dump this on him," says Stephanie, "With me around, he doesn't need any more problems. I don't want him to think I need these stupid pills to stay sane."

"There isn't a pill powerful enough for that," says Melanie, "But don't worry. I got your back." Translation: worry. Melanie leaves.

Lucas says this is about Victor. Phillip thinks maybe Victor would bury the hatchet for just one day. "I'll be at your wedding," says Lucas, "But I can't stand up at the altar with you. I'm sorry."

"You certainly are," says Phillip.

Prevuze

Maggie finds Kate at the hospital. They talk about Lucas and Chloe's new house. Kate says she hasn't seen it yet. Then they talk about a housewarming gift. Maggie thinks she might give them a piece of art for Allie.

Kate is getting them silverware. Daniel walks up and Kate asks what he is getting them.

Chloe joins Stephanie out on Grand Central Terrace. She asks how Stephanie is doing and Stephanie tells her she's fine.

The gals chitchat. "So," says Chloe, "How are you holding up?"

KABLOOIE!

Stephanie has a meltdown, "I TOLD YOU I WAS FINE WHEN YOU WALKED IN! WHY ARE YOU ASKING ME THAT AGAIN?"

"Because," says Chloe, "I was hoping maybe this time you weren't fine and would make my day and shrivel up and die a slow and agonizing death right in front of me."

Nicole says she means Mia is recovering. Rafe thinks they can't be sure about that. He says he isn't sure Mia is who she claims to be. He asks for the number of the teen center so he can call and get more information. The blood drains from Nicole's face.

Nathan bumps into Melanie and apologizes for being so rough on her.

Melanie is skeptical, "Why are you doing this? You want my parking spot? Want to use my juicer?"

Nathan asks, "Do you want me to get on my knees?"

He starts to get down but Melanie stops him, "I'm not used to people apologizing to me. It's usually me who has to do the apologizing and then they just want me to go away."

"I'm doing the apologizing," says Nathan, "and I Hope you don't tell me to stay away."

"I don't want that," says forgiving Melanie. Nathan says he has a personal question.

"The last time they were together," says Lucas, "Victor called Chloe the village slut."

"That's not true," gasps Phillip, "Everyone knows Salem is too big to be called a village. I'm sorry you won't be in my wedding, but I wanted to ask. I have to make sure Stephanie is happy. I'm not sure I can really do that."

"I Hope she's OK," says Lucas, "Do you think her unhappiness is more than overdosing on a potent bottle-o-pills could handle? "

Stephanie apologizes for blowing up. Chloe says she knows someone who can be a big help.

Daniel says he will think of something to give Chloe and Lucas, "I know! Perhaps a set of his-and-her clues... Kate gets a call and leaves. Maggie tells Daniel he doesn't have to get them a present, "This must be difficult for you to talk about them all the time. It's gotta be torture."

A gal in the audience stands up and screams, "TORTURE? YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT TORTURE? I'll TELL YOU ABOUT TORTURE! WATCHING THIS NONSENSE IS TORTURE!"

A calming voice comes over the loudspeaker, "Ladies and gentlemen, there will be a small intermission while the nice men in the white coats attend to our viewer. Please do not be alarmed. This happens frequently and we are well equipped to handle it quickly and efficiently. Thank you for your patience."


Speaking of torture, Rafe and Nicole continue their conversation. Sydney cries. Even she's tortured. Nicole refuses to give Rife the information he wants, claiming it's confidential. Nicole asks if Rafe thinks Mia had something to do with causing Grace's meningitis.

"OK," says Rafe, "I'll tell you the real reason I'm here."

Nathan says he has a personal question for Melanie. "Nathan," she says, "It's too early in our relationship for me to tell you my bra size."

"As a matter of fact, my cell phone has been getting lousy reception lately," says Nathan, "but I never really even thought of that."

"That's insulting."

"The personal question," says Nathan, "is that I want to know what kind of pills you are taking."

I'm not taking them," says Melanie, "They're my friend's pills."

"Riiiggghhhttt," says Nathan, "As if you had a friend."

Melanie says, "The sad thing is my friend really needs them and they're very powerful. They send you into orbit. My friend doesn't want her fiancée to know. Do you think I should tell him?"

Lucas suggests Stephanie should see someone for PTSD.

"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder," asks Phillip.

"No," says Lucas, "On this show it means Post Traumatic Stupidity Disorder. It's much more serious. But I think Stephanie will eventually come around."

Chloe tells Stephanie, I know someone who listens well and never judges."

Stephanie asks, "You mean Max the Dog is coming back on the show?"

Daniel stands at the nurses' station and computes. The nurse just happens to notice he's surfing the web for candy dishes. She finds out he's getting a housewarming gift and makes a suggestion, "Candy dishes never get used. I'd go with a little fruit."

Daniel asks, "Are you suggesting I should take Chris to the housewarming?"

Rafe wants to talk about the custody hearing, "What you say about Sami in court will make the difference. What if someone were trying to take Sydney? I know you would do whatever you could to make sure that did not happen."

Lucas and Chloe meet at the Java Café. She says she went to the Kiriakis mansion and got him something. She gives him an album his dad gave him when he was in Africa. Lucas says he thought it was lost in the Kiriakis fire. He can't believe it. He thinks Alice put it together, "This album was my welcome to the family."

Chloe says, "I want you to have it and add any new pictures... like of kids... that might come along."

Lucas gasps, "Are you telling me that you are..."

Chloe completes his sentence, "...dumb as a doorknob? No. That would be an insult to doorknobs everywhere."

"What did I do to deserve you," asks Lucas, "I just don't have a clue."

"And that's exactly what you did to deserve me," says Chloe.

Daniel orders the fruit basket as Kate watches, "Daniel, you're making this way too easy for me."

Melanie comes into the pub and finds Phillip, "Do you believe in coincidences?"

"No."

"Well," says Melanie, "I was just thinking about you. I have to talk about something."

"Lucky me," says Phillip.

Stephanie goes to see father Matt and tells him she needs help.

Nicole tells Rafe she doesn't want to discuss some hypothetical situation. She asks him to leave. Rafe tells her to keep Sydney safe and leaves. Nicole turns to Sydney, "You were safe until Rafe started asking too many questions. He won't find out. He won't." Translation: He will, but it will probably take forever.

Why did they have to bring up Nick and Melanie again? I still hate how the writers destroyed his character to kick him off the show and promote the whiney little twit.

To borrow from Mother Abigail (yes, The Stand) "Lords, yes." This storyline baby switching storyline is going to take forever. "F-O-R-E-V-E-R spells MOON."

Much like the movie mini series with that annoying Molly Ringwald who ruined every scene she was in, this storyline is going to be way tooooo long. (The Stand mini-series has how many parts? IT could have been done in 2 hrs and been good)

Like two particles in a super-collider, Daniel and Chloe run into each other, and meld into one giant human quark.

In an attempt to get some needed exercise, I got myself out of the house for a daily one hour walk through my neighborhood. The only collision I had was with a dog that ran out and bit me right in the butt. I have since purchased a treadmill, and I suggest Daniel do the same thing.

She escorts Rafe into the rumpus room. He apologizes AGAIN for asking all those questions at the cemetery.

I have two questions. Has the couch been shampooed, and how many kinds of stupid is Nicole for inviting Rafe into the mansion? I suppose the idea of Nicole letting Rafe into the DiMera lair is just as ridiculous as Rafe showing up there for a little tête-à-tête with Nicole. How could Rafe predict that neither EJ nor Stefano would be around? Geez.

Nathan turns to Maggie, "Why do you let Melanie live here?"

Excellent question! I already like Nathan.

She bounces, squeals and tells her she got into nursing school, "I think I've found my calling!"

"Is annoyance a new nursing specialty," asks Stephanie.

If it is, Melanie will ace all her classes.

“It's usually me who has to do the apologizing and then they just want me to go away."

Finally – a plan!!! Melanie needs to apologize to the viewers and hop the next flight to Bora Bora where she can annoy Patch and Kayla.

"Candy dishes never get used. I'd go with a little fruit."

Daniel asks, "Are you suggesting I should take Chris to the housewarming?"

Naughty, naughty Prevuze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"You were safe until Rafe started asking too many questions. He won't find out. He won't." Translation: He will, but it will probably take forever.

Heavens help us – I hope we won’t have to wait until the November sweeps for the big reveal. In comparison, a stint in a medieval torture chamber will seem like a spa vacation.

“Dirty Jobs” should include an episode on Prevuze digging through the muck that is Daze to deliver to the faithful a hilarious recap. It’s a dirty job but thank goodness Prevuze is willing to do it!

Leslie completely pre-empted my suggestion for Mike Rowe's next episode of "Dirty Jobs". HAHAHA

He leaves, giving the viewers yet another treasured Chloe-Daniel moment.

Pardon me, I had to leave and get a towel to wipe the dripping sarcasm off my monitor. Lolol

One question, why is Rafe suddenly so intent on investigating Mia??

This episode could have just as easily been titled "Torture". Just reading it was almost unbearable. Only the wonderful prevuisms (taking Chris as a housewarming gift)and pictures (Ho & Dope needing Mapquest and Lucas's tattoo) kept me slogging through it.

Thank you Prevuze for the dirty job you do for us!!

Oh, good. I earned a "Double Naughty." I collect them and put them in my trophy case right above the dusty, empty shelf I reserve for replicas of all DOOL's Emmys.

OK. Dimb bulb Melanie gives even dimmer bulb Stephanie the pills back. This time, Steph, just so us all a big favor take the whole lot of them please.

Leslie - I think you're being too optimistic that the baby storyline will go until November sweeps. I thought we'll be lucky if it ends in the next May sweeps!

Kate editing the tape. Now, on NCIS or CSI or some show where there's competent police investigating going on it would take them two seconds to discover the spliced tape. Since this will EVENTUALLY be the Salem PD I think Kate's in the clear.

LOL over Prevuze' new definition Post Traumatic Stupidity Disorder, a set of his and her clues and Lucas in the back of the church with a gun. (Is that to shoot Shawn in case he's driving his motorcycle to the church? HAHAHA)

Thank you for the great Prevuze today, you've gotten us almost to Friday. :D

Nathan says he knows what Melanie did to Nick.
Nathan is beginning to annoy me, now maybe they didn't think up his character back then, but I don't remember any 'Nathan' sending any type of condolences or help to Nick for whatever problem he was in. Even Jerky Jeremy helped out, that one time.

Also Nick is awesome.

~Lol at Lucas in the back with a gun. Maybe he'll hit Stephanie, or better yet Chloe.

~Ugh, why the hell is Rafe so nosy? Who cares if she has cemetery conversations with Brady, his sister does the same thing. What Mia does is Mia's business. And Maggie's. He want's to call the center? For what!?

Rafe: Hey! I called your 'center' and learned you weren't a drug addict!

Mia: Oh... That's nice. Bye!
