Talking And Venting

Note: This is a recap for the DOOL show which will air in the US today. Our satellite system is still on the blink, but Norris should be here this morning to work on it. Tomorrow's post may be a tad late since Norris charges an arm and a leg. The leg I can do without, but it's really hard to type without the arm.

Rafe sits at a table in the pub, stares at his borrowed computer and wonders what the thing is supposed to be used for. Arianna walks up behind him and says, "I see you're still not back together with Sami."

"What makes you think that," asks Rafe.

"You're registering on hookers-a-plenty.com," says Arianna, "So, any luck dishing the dirt on Dr. Baker?"

"Not yet," says Rafe. He pounds a few keys, "I'm still looking for a connection between Sami, Nicole, Baker and... Whoa! I got a message... 'Hot girls in Salem want to hook up with you tonight.' And whoa! Another message... It says someone from the clinic wants to meet me and give me information on a Dr. Richard M. Baker."

Nicole is at the pier. She calls Baker and asks if he got the money. Baker says he got it but calling her and letting her know that just slipped his mind. Nicole asks, "Then you and I are done, right?"

EJ is on the phone playing tycoon. Stefano comes in for a drink. EJ reminds him he shouldn't drink and Stefano gets defensive, "We have a problem of major proportions. Our cable company has dropped SoapNET."

Phillip asks Stephanie if she wants to get back together. "I thought you wanted that too," says Stephanie, "did something happen." The something that happened walks in. Stephanie wonders why Melanie is there.

Melanie turns to Phillip, "Do you want to tell her or should I?"

Phillip consults the Guy Manual for advice, "In the event your ex-girlfriend shows up to talk about getting back together and the tramp you slammed last night happens to drop in at the same time, we suggest considering a career with Patch and Kayla as a physician's aide in Bora Bora. The sooner the better."

Hope stands in the woods looking like a lost little girl. She hugs the suitcase full of money and shivers.

Mr. Sucker assures Ciara she'll see her mommy soon. Bonnie pulls him aside and tells him to cut it out since there is the possibility things might go wrong, "Besides, who would ever get excited about seeing Hope Brady?" She heads for the drop-off location to make sure the cops aren't double crossing them.

"Don't worry," says Mr. Sucker, "They don't have enough sense to single cross anyone."

Bo looks at Ciara's picture on the computer and has a vision of her getting shot. Hope picks up her lifeless body and blathers.

Clyde asks if something is wrong. Bo huffs and puffs.

Hope stands, holds the suitcase and shifts her eyes back and forth.

Bo tries to call Hope, who has turned off her cell. He rushes out. Justin watches.

EJ thinks Stefano's news could throw them a setback.

Rafe tells Arianna the clinic is shut down and he got access to the website from a disgruntled former patient, "This person has agreed to meet within the hour."

"Another disgruntled person with contacts to the clinic," asks Arianna.

"No," says Rafe, "I think this person is completely gruntled." He leaves. Arianna stares.

Nicole yells, "You listen to me you SOB! You're not gonna harass me any more." Baker insists he is merely keeping in touch. He asks for her to email pictures of Sami's baby. Nicole reminds him Sydney is her baby, "Damn you, DICK, you swore you would leave me alone if I gave you the money. Go away, for good."

"Why do you always emphasize it like that when you say, 'DICK,'" he asks.

"Lets just say you were appropriately named," says Nicole.


"Nicole," he sighs, "have a pina colada... or four... five. It will soothe your nerves."

She hangs up and fawns over Sydney. She assures her Dr. Baker is out of their lives for good, "Now you are truly mine." Translation: Say your goodbye's, Nicole.

Victor finds Justin at the cop shop. Justin fills him in on Bo and Hope's situation. He says he thinks Bo has new information but doesn't know what it is. Victor thinks this means Bo is refusing to pay the ransom, "How is he ever going to forgive himself if he screws this up?"

"The way he forgives himself every day for screwing things up."

Bonnie hides at the drop-off location, but runs off as Bo rushes up to Hope. Bo shouts, "Hope! You can't pay the ransom. If you do, Ciara will die."

Phillip feels like he's in one of those airline commercials with the tag line, "Ever wish you were somewhere else?" He rambles, shucks and jives, bobs and weaves, "Well... uh... after my big decision to leave the family, I was under a lot of stress and Melanie found a way to relieve that stress."

Melanie chimes in, "It was one of those right place right time kind of things."

"And why are you here now," asks Stephanie, "And where were you all night.

Melanie is only too happy to answer, "He was with me. We spent the night together." We hear the sound of a lead balloon crashing into the room.

Rafe sneaks into the clinic. He turns on the lights and congratulates himself for mastering such a complex maneuver. He finds a computer and tries to figure out how to turn it on. Light switches... yes. Computers... a whole other ball game with Rafe.

EJ says he has a meeting set for later today. "I don't like it," growls Stefano, "What if it's an ambush?" EJ assures him they will take precautions as Nicole interrupts. Stefano leaves.

Nicole asks her usual question, "What is going on?"

"I have bad news," says EJ, "Ciara has been kidnapped."

Victor gets off the phone and tells Justin he can't talk. He has something to do that can't wait. He says he has to make sure the Ciaranapping didn't have anything to do with her being a Kiriakis.

Hope wants to know if Brady had another vision. Bo tells her what he saw. Clyde rushes up. Bo tells him the deal is off. Clyde protests and Bo gets nasty. Clyde volunteers to stick around and look for the kidnappers. He runs off as Bo assures Hope they are doing the right thing.

Stephanie staggers. Phillip attempts a recovery. The news about Ciara comes out. Phillip says he should call Victor. Melanie offers to help, then leaves. Stephanie goes for the jugular, "I need to know what happened between you and Melanie last night."

Prevuze

Rafe finally gets into the computer. Saying Rafe isn't computer literate is like saying a dolphin has trouble strolling down Fifth Avenue. Rafe gives up on the devil-machine and finds a stack of brochures. Rafe is much more of a brochure kinda guy than a computer kinda guy. As he peruses the brochures, he hears a noise outside.

Baker hangs up and grabs the newspaper. He checks the racing results, sees his pick Glue-goo was entered in the fifth race. The good news is Glue-goo came in first. The bad news is he came in first in the sixth race. Baker calls his buddy Walt.

EJ fills Nicole in on the kidnapping. He says he doesn't have many details, but his heart goes out to Bo and Hope even though he hates their guts.

Clyde comes back to the shack and throws a fit. He tells them Bo said the deal is off. He doesn't know what changed Bo's mind, "If I know that pushy Hope she wont stop until she gets her way."

Bonnie asks, "And what if she doesn't... What happens then?"

"Bo usually sleeps in the doghouse," says Clyde.

Bo and Hope arrive back at the cop shop and tell Justin they called things off. Bo says the act of paying the kidnappers would mean they wouldn't get Ciara back... they would kill her.

"How could you know that," asks Justin. Weird music swells.

Stephanie decides she is out of line and this is all none of her business. She says she's jealous, however. She says the only reason she broke up with Phillip is he was committed to being a Kiriakis, but now that he's left that lifestyle she thinks he's smokin' hot. Phillip asks if they should try again.

"Whatever happens between us depends on what happened between you and Melanie," says Stephanie.

Rafe checks out the noise and finds a woman in the clinic. The woman panics and tells him to take what he wants, but begs him not to hurt her. Rafe says he's there to meet someone. The woman asks, "You're the one who was asking about Dr. Baker?"

Rafe asks, "You have some information about Dr. Baker to tell me?"

"I thought you would be a woman," she says.

"The dresses I usually wear are all packed away right now," says Rafe.

"I'm not sure I should say anything," she says.

Nicole zones out, "Someone taking a child is the most tragic thing that could ever happen, unless that child is better off with someone else."

That gets EJ's attention, "What do you mean by that?" Nicole stammers and backpedals. This brings up another maudlin conversation about Grace. "Being denied your own child is tantamount to having her taken from you," says EJ, "Without you and Sydney our life would be meaningless."

"I feel the same way," says Nicole.

Justin presses and wants to know how Bo knows all this stuff. Bo blows up and says he's told him everything he can. Hope steps up and bawls him out for preventing her from getting her daughter back. Hope tells him this is all in his head, "We're back to square one, Brady. Do you have a plan?"

"Plans are for wimps," says Bo.

Hope asks if there is another call and a different drop off point can she pay the kidnappers. "The drop off point is irrelevant," says Bo, "We're not giving them any money. Ever."

Melanie hits the pub. She sits at the bar. Arianna walks up. Melanie squeals, "Are you gonna ask me what's new?"

"Uh... OK. What's new?"

Melanie spews it all, "I ran into Phillip and he needed a shoulder to cry on. Then when the crying was over, we moved on to OTHER THINGS."

Arianna gasps, "Are you telling me you and him... you got..."

Melanie gives Arianna her thousand-tooth smile, "I got..."

Arianna asks, "So you and Phillip are together?"

"Well," says Melanie, "I'm still not exactly sure we are together yet given the family crisis and his situation with Stephanie. But when Stephanie finds out, she won't have anything to do with Phillip."

Phillip does what any self-respecting guy would do. He drops more fiction on Stephanie than Hemingway and Faulkner produced in a lifetime, "Melanie and I spent the night together talking and venting. Melanie knows I still love you. She's just trying to be a better person. She understands what you and I have and that it doesn't go away. I love you. I just want to get back together. Is that a possibility?" Stephanie stares.

Baker is on the phone with Walt, "I heard you. Glue-goo lost. You'll get your money. All of it."

Bo stops Hope from running out and tells her she has to trust him. Hope blows her stack. Justin steps in and tells Bo they have to play the kidnapper's game. Bo insists Ciara's life will be in danger because she knows one of these guys, "She's only safe if we don't pay them." Clyde comes in with an envelope and hands it to Bo. Bo reads and sweats.

Stephanie thinks they can't make decisions about themselves with the Ciara situation hanging. "That's OK," says Phillip, "I'll be cool"

"Don't be too cool," says Stephanie.

Phillip backtracks, "What I meant to say is (say it with him), I'll be here for you." Stephanie wonders if the Ciara situation will pull him back to the fold. "I have to (say it with him) be there for my family," says Phillip, "But once this is over I'm pullin' out."

Stephanie hopes he sticks to his vow. He assures her he wants to be with her. She asks to go up to his bedroom and check for a book she may have left there. She leaves and outside she leans against the door and contemplates.

Rafe says he never said he was a woman. He says he's there for a female friend, "She needs to speak to Baker. It's urgent." The woman says she doesn't know where Baker is.

Melanie comes back to the Kiriakis mansion. She asks Phillip if he told Stephanie they slept together. Phillip bobs and weaves and says he and Stephanie might have a chance of getting back together. Premiere Party Girl don' look happy.

The DiMera and Kiriakis families meet at the docks and talk about Ciara. The DiMeras say they had nothing to do with Ciara being taken.

Clyde tells Bo what he has is a series of reports on similar kidnappings which might have involved the same gang, "These kidnappers have been involved in other cases and have always returned the kid after the money was paid."

Melanie does a slow boil, "So last night meant nothing to you."

"I didn't say that," says Phillip.

The slow boil turns into an explosion of tears, "You got everything you wanted. You got me and your precious Stephanie. Do you remember what you said to me... the way you touched me?"

"You're angry with me," says Phillip. His level of perception is exceeded only by the temperature of the boiling oil he's swimming in.

Melanie goes for the throat, "If I tell Stephanie we slept together, she will tell you to go to hell. I'm not backing you up this time." Stephanie walks in. Thank God she had her hearing aid turned off.

Victor says he doesn't know if he should believe EJ. EJ insists the DiMeras do not harm children, "Anyone who took a child form me would die a slow and painful death."

Nicole comes into the pub and finds Arianna. She says Sami told her about her breakup with Rafe. Arianna wonders why this is any of Nicole's business.

The woman at the clinic says she was the nurse who worked for Baker, "Something terrible happened here at the clinic."

Bo and Hope get the next call. Bonnie tells Hope they are disappointed things didn't go off as planned, and Ciara can't stop crying. Hope says she's not backing out of the deal. Suddenly Bo goes bonkers and grabs the phone, "You're not getting your money! You wanna know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take this five mil and I'm gonna pay off every snitch I can find in Salem. I will hunt you down for all the Days Of Our Lives and make you suffer for the rest of your short miserable lives! Do you hear me?"

Wow - Bo must have broken some brain cells in this episode. Such an acting stretch for Peter to play a tough guy.

EJ insists the DiMeras do not harm children, "Anyone who took a child form me would die a slow and painful death." oh one can only hope! Nicole better run!

Almost Friday folks.

Prevuze best serving of VIMMAL on the web ;)

I check back randomly to see if Chloe bit the dust and I suppose she may never... *sigh*

"I have bad news," says EJ, "Ciara has been kidnapped."
For some reason, I heard the "DUN DUN DUUUUUNNNN"

"I need to know what happened between you and Melanie last night."
I still dislike Stefanie though.

Stephanie decides she is out of line and this is all none of her business.... Phillip asks if they should try again.
Good Grief! Where is your pride, woman???

"What do you mean by that?"
Oh give me a break. He, who took Johnny? And threatened to take him on a similar premise before, doesn't understand what she 'reasonably' meant?

Hope tells him this is all in his head, "We're back to square one, Brady. Do you have a plan?"
So basically their relationship is -
Hope: Brady, tell me about all your visions, no matter what.
Bo: *blah, blah, blah*
Hope: You crazy bastard!

~Also, I keep thinking of Mimi's mother as the kidnapper. But that makes me lol, so it's ok.

"You're not getting your money! You wanna know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take this five mil and I'm gonna pay off every snitch I can find in Salem. I will hunt you down for all the Days Of Our Lives and make you suffer for the rest of your short miserable lives! Do you hear me?"
Now that's an officer of the law!

"What makes you think that," asks Rafe.

"You're registering on hookers-a-plenty.com,"

Obviously, Rafe hasn’t met Kate yet.

"We have a problem of major proportions. Our cable company has dropped SoapNET."

Not to worry – all Stefano has to do is read Prevuze. The Prevuze blog is highly entertaining and also very low on the glycemic index so Stefano doesn’t have to worry about a spike in his blood sugar level.

"Nicole," he sighs, "have a pina colada... or four... five. It will soothe your nerves."

Dr. Baker is a hoot! Just like every other interesting quirky character that has shown up on Daze he’s scheduled to take a dirt nap. What a shame! Dr. Baker and Nicole’s sparring matches are so much fun. When the eventual happens and EJ kicks her to the curb, Nicole and Dr. Baker could have gotten together. Just think – we could have gotten Nicker! HAHAHAHA!!!

Phillip feels like he's in one of those airline commercials with the tag line, "Ever wish you were somewhere else?"

On top of that, Phillip is smack dab in the middle of a triangle that includes Stephanie and Melanie. I would call that the “triangle from hell”.

"Whatever happens between us depends on what happened between you and Melanie," says Stephanie.

Is Stephanie looking for pointers?

"I'm not sure I should say anything," she says.

How typical of DOOL. Instead of going to the AMA, patients are complaining about Dr. Baker on a website. Rafe miraculously accesses the site and manages to get a woman to meet him at an empty clinic. What kind of idiot is that woman? Hasn’t she heard of e-mail or that funny little invention called a telephone? Now that she’s made the inane decision to actually show up at the clinic, she can’t decide whether to spill her guts. Geez!

If my daughter were being held for ransom, I don’t think I would be telling the kidnappers how I was going to be using the ransom money to track them down. For a police commissioner, Bo isn’t much of a deep thinker.

Applecheeks and Bulldog – super pics, and then, of course, there is the terrific censored link. I hope you’re right Prevuze. I don’t think I could stomach a spawn

Glad Melanie finally got some.

That was pretty good advice the Guy Manual gave Philip. He should have taken it. Related: Spit-take #1 for me:

"You're angry with me," says Phillip. His level of perception is exceeded only by the temperature of the boiling oil he's swimming in.

Prevuze got off another good one with,

"Plans are for wimps," says Bo.

Apparently the mantra for the writing staff as well. Exhibit A, the entire ridiculous scenario of Rafe, the clinic, the former nurse Leslie just outlined.

Great Prevuze today. I hope Norris can get the compound back in the loop without requiring the sacrifice of precious prevuze limbs!

Too bad Kate wasn't in the show today. My word verification is coogr. What I could have done with that! lolol

There is the possibility things might go wrong, "Besides, who would ever get excited about seeing Hope Brady?" and

"Don't worry," says Mr. Sucker, "They don't have enough sense to single cross anyone." Both so true. Talk about the Keystone Cops! Ciara better be making friends with the kidnappers quick. Maybe they can help her escape this looney bin.

Thank God she had her hearing aid turned off. They must all have them turned off as many loud conversations they walk in on and don't hear!

Loved the Applecheeks pic. And I had to laugh just picturing Prevuze trying to decide what line to use after such a great set-up: I thought you would be a woman," she says. HAHAHAHA

Almost to Friday is right! Thanks, Prevuze.

I agree, the Ciara storyline is just like the movie Ransom! I wouldn't be surprised if the inside cop soon turns in the other kidnappers and "saves" Ciara to collect the $...

Actually, any form of birth control is illegal in Salem. The only saving grace is that there is significant black market activity. We certainly hope Phillip used a little contraband during his... uh... get together with Melanie.

I had the same reaction when I read it! In fact, I figured that Prevuze must have decided to be risque today and just write what we were all thinking when I didn't see a censored link in the area.

I considered it, but let it go. Censored links take extra time and I'm preoccupied with this satellite problem (I know, wah-wah), which Norris didn't fix (double wah-wah). He's coming back again Tuesday armed with more equipment to try again.

That doesn't mean we won't get a feed tomorrow because this thing seems to come and go.
