Hot Chocolate And Broccoli

Danny and Granny. Hot to trot. In bed. As things heat up Kate wonders, "What's wrong with me?" Daniel pretty much thinks nothing is wrong with her.

Kate pops back to reality and walks through the woods, "I have to."

Daniel sits at his computer and is distracted as he remembers longing looks with Kate, "You're out of control." He calls Lexie.

Lexie ignores Daniel's call and tells Nathan they can't talk to him and Daniel knows it. She worries about Ciara as she walks out of Chloe's room. Outside, Theo throws a fit begging to see Ciara. Lexie assures him Ciara will be fine as Abe fills her in on the progress of the search.

Stephanie stands in the woods holding a poster with Ciara's picture on it. She prays as Phillip talks to Brady on the phone. He tells him he's not coming home and hangs up. Phillip hears something. He and Stephanie head toward the noise.

Ciara insists Dean isn't the guy who saved her. (Now that Bonnie is gone, Clyde is calling himself Dean. How soon we forget.)

Nathan finds Melanie at the nurses' station, looks over and sees Abe as he makes the announcement that they found Ciara. Hearing the wonderful news, he picks up Melanie, whirls her around, drops her, does a wohoo and a happy dance.

"You have to learn to express your emotions," says Melanie. Nathan runs off to make calls.

Ciara tells Hope it was really her and Daddy who saved her. Bo overhears and tells her they never stopped looking for her.

Brady is back home on the phone getting the good news. Daniel says now that Ciara is safe he was wondering if Brady could help him get to Chloe. Brady says he can't help because he's been doing some research and found out the drug Daniel wants to give her could kill her, "What you're asking me to do..."

Daniel interrupts, "Is to help save a life."

"You're sure of that," says Brady, "I'm not."

Daniel tells him to forget it, "That monster is running around free. Kate did this and set me up for it."

Brady tries to bring Daniel back to earth and suggests getting Chloe's father involved, "There's nothing a father likes to do more than helping his daughter's boytoy wreck her marriage." He says he can't believe the convoluted tale Daniel is making up about Kate, "You sound like some conspiracy theory guy."

"Conspiracy theory," asks Daniel, "That... Ransom... are we going to rip off all the Mel Gibson movies?"

Kate looks into Chloe's room, but hears Nathan on the phone as he walks into the area. Kate skedaddles. Nathan gets to the nurses' station and says he thinks Melanie looks unhappy.

"Unhappy," repeats Melanie, "Why should I be unhappy just because I'm doing inventory before the bedpan fun?" Melanie gets snotty and asks if Nate called Stephanie, then beats herself up for being angry. Nathan says he didn't mean to hurt her feelings. Melanie softens and blabbers about her misconception about the date switcheroo the other night.

Nathan asks, "What about Phillip and Stephanie?"

Melanie says, "They're probably going to get back together."

Prevuze

Melanie insists she's OK with that, though.

Phillip and Stephanie find a cop who tells them about finding Ciara. Joy abounds and they hug. Phillip hugs Stephanie, too.

Roman announces the ambulance is on the way and takes Dean off. Ciara reassures Hope, "Don't cry, Mommy, you don't have to be sad any more." At least there is one adult in the crowd.

We have a family moment. Bo says, "I know... we'll all go home and have some nice hot chocolate and broccoli."

Ciara gags, "NOOOOOO!"

"Of course we won't have that," says Hope, "Instead we'll have hot chocolate and asparagus."

Ciara rolls her eyes, "I knew they were weird, but I never realized how bad it was."

Daniel is on the phone with Justin who also tries to cool Daniel's jets. Daniel hangs up and Brady tries to calm him down. Daniel goes off the deep end. He tells Brady Kate has an Achilles heel.

Brady asks, "And that would be?"

"Me."

Brady agrees, "You're a heel all right."

Kate goes into Chloe's room and revs up the taunting.

Lexie tells Roman she thinks Dean will be OK. Translation: Plan his funeral.

Roman says the guy that took Ciara was a registered sex offender.

Lexie asks, "You mean Daniel took Ciara?"

They bring Ciara in and everyone goes crazy when they see her. Hope tells Lexie Bo hit his head in the fight and wants him checked out. Bo refuses. His head was a Cash for Clunkers trade-in candidate a long time ago. They walk off and Roman asks if Bo is OK. Bo shrugs it off and says Ciara told him the bad man just gave her candy, "I don't think he touched her. What do I do if he did?"

Daniel tells Brady he knows Kate is obsessed with him and now she wants him to suffer. Brady buys it because of the way Kate reacts around Phillip, "With her if you mess with Phillip, you're in deep trouble." Daniel asks Brady to help and this time Brady agrees.

Kate continues to taunt Chloe. She promises to tell her all about Daniel's journey to death row. Nate walks in and asks what she is doing there.

Lexie comes back and reassures Bo, "I've examined Ciara and found no signs of physical abuse." Relieved, Bo leaves.

Phillip and Stephanie sit at the Cheatin' Heart. Phillip is treating the volunteers but thinks he should curb those impulses since he's unemployed and broke. "No prob," says Stephanie, "We can live on my salary."

Phillip raises his eyebrows, "You said we."

"Well," says Stephanie, ""We don't exactly have the best track record, you know."

Phillip says, "But it's better than your record on the track. And we have each other. That counts for something. Nothing worth a damn, though."

Bo joins Ciara and Hope in a room. Lexie comes in and says they are releasing Dean, and she thought perhaps Bo and Hope might want to talk to him before he leaves. Bo and Hope leave to find Dean.

Roman has decided to talk Dean's statement right now, so Dean the hero can sleep in tomorrow morning. Dean tells them he went to call for backup at the cabin, but saw the male perp put a blanket over Ciara and reach for a gun, so he went right in and took him out.

"Ciara must have been so scared," wails Hope.

Melanie finds Brady in the park. He asks for her help, "Actually, Chloe needs your help."

Stephanie is confused (sorry for the redundancy), "And she told you this... how?"

Kate tells Nathan she's Chloe's mother in law and has every right to be in her room. She bawls him out for talking to her like that. Nathan softens and Kate says Lucas is lost without Chloe, "He's so conflicted."

Nate asks, "Are you sure you even want Chloe to get better?"

Stephanie and Phillip discuss their relationship. "With us," says Stephanie, "It's just the same-o, same-o."

Out in the audience, Gertrude turns to Penelope, "Isn't that what I've been telling you for months?"

Phillip says he had to make a change or he wouldn't have been able to live with himself. He knows things will take time and that's OK with him.

Hope is still angry with Bo for going on TV. She don' wanna talk about it. So, what do they do? They talk about it. Bo says he needs to know what Ciara knows, "Then I'll finally be as smart as a six-year-old. If there is someone else out there who was involved we need to find them for our daughter's safety." He stands up, staggers across the room and catches himself on the counter before falling.

Brady tells Melanie, "Daniel can help Chloe."

"Into the afterlife," asks Melanie, "What do you need me to do?"

Brady answers, "Steer us to a person who has enough medical knowledge to take Daniel's directions, but is low profile. Someone like an intern. Know anyone like that?" Gee. I wonder who she'll pick.

Kate insists Lucas wants Chloe to get better. She tells Nathan he is young, unrealistic and naïve and can't comprehend that someone other than Chloe was hurt by Daniel, "That was Lucas." Young, unrealistic, naïve Nathan thinks maybe Lucas should be making the treatment decisions. "That's none of your business," snaps Kate, "Good night doctor." She leaves.

Stephanie has perhaps had one beer too many, "Send Romeo and Juliet to couples counseling and it still won't make the Montagues like the Capulets." Stephanie thinks Victor (representing the Montagues) would ruin their relationship if they got back together and she knows her family (representing the Capulets) isn't that thrilled with their relationship either.

"I loved that story," says Phillip, "Tony... Maria... the Jets... the Sharks..."

That giant spinning sound you hear is William Shakespeare in his grave.

Dazed Bo insists he's fine. Lexie comes back and Hope tattles about his dizzy spell. Roman wheels Dean in. Hope wonders how she can thank him. Dean says he was just doing his job, "It's a good thing Bonnie was a bad shot," says Hope.

"I know," says Dean, "Although, if she were as bad a shot as you, I'd be OK right now. Of course Kayla would be laying dead somewhere." Dean flashes back as Hope encourages him to get the counseling the department offers.

Roman comes back and says nothing ties either Bonnie or Mr. Sucker to Hope or Bo. Dean stares.

Daniel sits at the pier and swills booze from his flask. Chloe's apparition walks up to him. He grabs her and dives in, "I want you to remember I would never kiss you if I didn't love you so much. Kiss, no... grope, yes."

"I love you too Daniel," pants Chloe, "and I trust you." Munchification ensues.

Daniel pops back to reality, "Whatever it takes. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do." A man's gotta find better dialogue.

Stephanie says if they love each other their families will just have to deal with it. She says she's hopeful about their relationship, however, "If we're honest we can get through anything."

Phillip flashes back to his little peccadillo with Melanie, "You're right. Maybe honesty is the best way to go."

Melanie has dragged Nathan into the woods to beg him to help her. Nathan flashes back to his conversation with Kate and agrees to talk to Daniel.

Kate strolls around the pier. She's retired but still likes to walk the streets on the seedy side of town to keep in shape. She sees Daniel, "YOU!"

"You," says Daniel, "This is perfect. Just the two of us."

Kate accuses, "You've been drinking."

"Just like it was meant to be," says Daniel.

Phillip says, "I need to tell you something. I promise – The past is over."

"That's why they call it the past," says Stephanie.

Lexie says Bo has a concussion. Bo says he will come in tomorrow, but won't stay tonight, and that is non-negotiable. He leaves and Lexie tells Hope "He'll be OK. You might want to have your black dress cleaned, however, so it will look good at the funeral."

Bo comes back with Ciara asleep on his shoulder. Hope strokes her head.

Ciara cries, "Mommy, no!"

"You're having a nightmare," says Hope.

"I know," says Ciara, "You're taking me home to have hot chocolate and broccoli."

Roman wheels Dean in. Dean nervously flicks his Bic as they get him pain killers. Ciara has a combo dream-flashback to her nightmare in the cabin. "It was horrible," she thinks, "But at least they didn't serve no stinkin' broccoli."

Satellite report: It looks like Norris made some significant improvement in our reception. I still have the "digital noise" (a few random squares and squiggles) coming in on the transmission, as you can see when Prevuze II comes out, but the picture is indeed improved. I guess I'd have to say I remain hopeful that our satellite issues are behind us until some tree-rat (sometimes referred to as a squirrel) chews through the cable again.

Kate pops back to reality and walks through the woods, "I have to."
I don't know about you all, but the idea of Kate walking through the wilderness is hilarious.

He says he can't believe the convoluted tale Daniel is making up about Kate
Because has been a saint before hand. I could understand his doubt if it was St. Marlena.

Melanie says, "They're probably going to get back together."
Ugh, what the hell is going on? Nathan, Melanie, Philip and Stephanie are all dating each other!?

~Ah, the taboo 'sex offender,' it sounds like this devilish sex fiend is more dangerous than Stefano. I'm not trying to defend sex offenders, this is just lazy writing. Turning an antagonist, who showed no signs of sexual deviancy, into a sexual deviant. Just to up the seriousness of the plot is shallow, and likely par for the course. I just don't like it when writers have a bad guy, who's probably affable in some way, and they add the addendum; he eats kittens, is a pedo, and or purposely parks in handicap spots. Bleh~I had a longer rant, but let it die.

"Ciara must have been so scared,"
Nope, she was veritable robot.

"Send Romeo and Juliet to couples counseling and it still won't make the Montagues like the Capulets."
As long as the Juliet dies in this scenario, I'm all game.

"Although, if she were as bad a shot as you, I'd be OK right now.
Thank you Prevuze, I totally forgot Hope shot Kayla. Good memories.

Bo says he will come in tomorrow, but won't stay tonight, and that is non-negotiable.
Gotta love Bo's thinking. "I'll spend tonight with my kid, and end up in a decade-coma tomorrow!"

Give Norris some beer. Or Cocoa!

Stephanie stands in the woods holding a poster with Ciara's picture on it.

Apparently, Stephanie is hoping to get information about Ciara from squirrels seeking out nuts. I'm thinking that Stephanie shouldn't have any problem attracting a tree rat or ten. Yes, Prevuze, squirrels are rodents.

"Conspiracy theory," asks Daniel, "That... Ransom... are we going to rip off all the Mel Gibson movies?"

Next up – “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”.

Bo says, "I know... we'll all go home and have some nice hot chocolate and broccoli."

Ciara was kidnapped and spent her time in captivity being bound, blindfolded, and forced to wear earplugs. What she needs is some nice hot chocolate and a therapist.

He tells Brady Kate has an Achilles heel.

Brady asks, "And that would be?"

"Me."

Brady agrees, "You're a heel all right."

Good job Prevuze!

Bo and Hope leave to find Dean.

Their daughter was just rescued from kidnappers, and Hope was over the top annoyed with Bo. Is it just me or don’t you think Hope would want to – say it with me – be there for her daughter? Bo is Dean’s superior. Hope doesn’t need to talk to him.

"With us," says Stephanie, "It's just the same-o, same-o."

Out in the audience, Gertrude turns to Penelope, "Isn't that what I've been telling you for months?"

DOOL should pair Stephanie with Rafe. The entire audience would be comatose faster than Chloe eating one of Kate’s homemade brownies.

”Someone like an intern. Know anyone like that?" Gee. I wonder who she'll pick.

This is so stupid. Why wouldn’t Brady have thought of Nathan all by himself?

"I love you too Daniel," pants Chloe, "and I trust you." Munchification ensues.

My oh my Prevuze you certainly know how to paint a picture with words. That’s a good thing because I certainly won’t be watching any portion of this episode. As usual, your recap is excellent, the photos are super, and Bulldog’s fun DOOL fact is Gordon Lightfoot worthy! It’s a miserable gloomy h@@p day in Chicago. That means I could be talking about the weather or the affects of Carlos Zambrano's pitching. Take your pick. Prevuze thanks for cheering me up!

(Now that Bonnie is gone, Clyde is calling himself Dean. How soon we forget.)

Ahhh, he’ll always be Clyde to me. LOL

"Conspiracy theory," asks Daniel, "That... Ransom... are we going to rip off all the Mel Gibson movies?"

Apparently not. Too bad the SPD can’t take some hints from Mel’s Lethal Weapon series. At least he always got the perp.

LOL funny: Stephanie is confused (sorry for the redundancy).
and
"Whatever it takes. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do." A man's gotta find better dialogue.
And
Kate’s retired but still likes to walk the streets on the seedy side of town to keep in shape.

Hope wonders how she can thank him.

Ummm, I can think of about 5 million ways. Speak up Dean!

"Ciara must have been so scared,"
Nope, she was veritable robot
.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, Klaus.

And the BEST, as usual, were the pictures. Bulldog’s trivia contribution, Melanie’s take on Philame and BANG! Yippee for Norris and Prevuze!

Word verification: glorch which was pretty much my reaction to chocolate & broccoli

”Someone like an intern. Know anyone like that?" Let's not be hasty and assume it's Nathan. Maybe it's Chris.

But speaking of Nathan, what hospital doesn't have tons of doctors walking around even if it's to bill a patient for walking past their room? And Daniel has to rely on an intern? Has he no colleagues? A golfing buddy?

Bo says he needs to know what Ciara knows,"Then I'll finally be as smart as a six-year-old." I don't think that would bring him up to even that level.

Loved the Jets and Sharks and His head was a Cash for Clunkers trade-in candidate a long time ago."

Klaus, you're a hoot! And we should all add Norris to our Christmas list for helping get Prevuze up and running. Thanks for the cheer on a dark and rainy day. :D

Thanks for hanging in there Prevuze... my lunch hour would not be complete without enjoying your recaps! It doesn't even matter to me if the show has already aired, I love getting a chuckle from your posts... especially the additions to your Prevuzecabulary.

Just a thought... so Hope's daughter suffered a kidnapping and more or less witnessed 2 murders but she's worried about "Clyde" getting counseling??? Plus as Leslie pointed out, she's still all snippy with Bo... sheesh.

If Hope ain't snippy, Hope ain't happy.
