Lucky Me, Skeptical You

EJ stands in the rumpus room and grills Jeeves about the mysterious envelope. Pennyworth says he doesn't know anything about it, so EJ dismisses him. He opens it and contemplates.

Anna bounces around and babbles to Sydney, "That's right, beautiful. Your auntie is going to be filthy rich. It's only a matter of time."

Sydney says, "You forgot to change my diaper. I may not be rich but I've got the filthy part covered."

Nathan and Melanie are together in Maggie's kitchen. Nathan says he thinks Melanie is rushing things with Phillip. Melanie tells him to keep his opinions to himself as Phillip shows up.

Carly and Bo hug. Bo comforts her and moves in. He plasters himself to her and plants a big kiss. Meanwhile, Hope the giddy schoolgirl who has decided to run home and save her marriage bounds up to the door and looks in the window. Oops.

Chloe and Brady are at the Java Café. Chloe says she and Daniel want to help him. She tells him she's found out Arianna is a drug dealer and wants details.

Arianna finds Rafe at the pub. He tells her there is a possible break in the Syd-napping.

Sami walks into the rumpus room and asks EJ what he's reading.

Vivian wonders, "Who is the father of Carly's bastard love child and where is the child?" She thinks Victor looks distracted, "You think Carly's child will be another Kiriakis heir, and think maybe it's Bo's child."

"It's possible," says Victor, "I saw them dragging out the old Bo-Billie-Chelsea scripts this week."

Hope knocks. Bo answers. Hope saunters in. We share a tense moment as the lovebirds realize they've probably been caught red handed. Hope gives Carly a nasty look and sneers, "Happy holidays." She turns to Bo, "Keeping busy, I see."

Nathan excuses himself and leaves. Melanie tells Phillip Kate and Vivian were there, too. Phillip takes off, leaving us to wonder why he was there in the first place.

Gabi and Mia stroll together outside. Mia asks what Gabi's interests are. "I'm interested in band and pre-med," says Gabi."

"You'll fit right in at Salem hospital," says Mia, "Most of the doctors there can't tell the difference between a bedpan and a tuba." Gabi says she isn't sure what she wants to be. Mia says she met a doc who turned her off to the whole medical experience, "She wanted to move into the house I live in. I Hope I never see her again."

Carly suddenly remembers she has a dental appointment in Tanganyika. She hustles out. Hope goes for the jugular, "Hopefully she can come back soon and you can finish what you started."

Bo plays dumb (It's not a stretch), "Huh?"

"You know what I'm talking about," says Hope, "I saw you kissing!"

Bo wonders if the "I thought it was you" defense he used after he got caught with Billie in the gas pit might work again.

Rafe fills Arianna in on the boots. He gets a call and walks off.

Anna admires her boots and reconfirms her coming riches.

EJ tells Sami the envelope is something an old college buddy sent him. He stuffs it into his desk drawer. Sami says she felt at Christmas like they were really working together and now thinks he's being distant, "What are you keeping from me?"

Victor says he doesn't think Carly's kid would be Bo's child. Vivian wants to pursue it anyway. "Go ahead," says Victor, "as long as you don't hurt Bo in the process."

Hope is way ahead of Vivian in line to hurt Bo. Bo bobs and weaves, "If we had been together, that never would have happened."

Hope erupts, "So it's my fault?"

Bo tries another one, "That was the first time that ever happened."

Hope gives him that look women give men only when there is no gun available, "I'm sure it was difficult for you to restrain yourself. What a selfless man you are."

Brady denies Arianna is a drug dealer. Chloe thinks that's just peachy. She leaves. Brady broods.

Rafe gets off the phone and tells Arianna there is a short list of people who bought tacky boots like Nicole saw, "But half the people who bought the boots paid cash."

Sami says she feels like EJ is distracted. EJ blows his stack about how they are wasting time in the Sydney hunt. Tattoo announces a call on the library phone. EJ rushes out. Sami immediately goes for the envelope in the drawer. She pulls it out, reads and gasps.

EJ comes back in. Sami has become an emotional bag of bolts, "HOW COULD YOU KEEP THIS FROM ME?"

Mia and Gabi arrive at Maggie's and they find Melanie in the kitchen. Mia makes the introductions and takes a look at Melanie's finger, "Either I've just discovered a new planet, or that's an engagement ring on your finger." Melanie tells them Phillip proposed.

Maggie walks in as Mia blurts, "What happened to Nathan?"

Phillip finds Nathan at the Java Café. He gets macho and wants to know if Nathan was behind Melanie getting called to work on Christmas, "Get over it, man, that ship has sailed."

Brady finds Arianna at the pub. He tells her time is running out on her cover.

Sami goes on an emotional journey that would qualify as an E-Ticket ride at Disneyland, "YOU SOB! WHEN WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ME ABOUT THIS? THIS ISN'T ALL ABOUT YOU! SHE'S MY DAUGHTER, TOO!"

"I didn't tell you about the letter because I know you'd be hysterical if I told you. I was going to tell you eventually."

EJ isn't disappointed. Sami's level of hysteria goes off the scale, "WHEN WERE YOU GOING TO TELL ME? NEXT WEEK? NEXT YEAR?" He reminds her the note says not to tell anyone.

Sami pretends to be sane, "We don't know it's from the kidnapper."

Now it's EJ's turn to blow a gasket, "Whom do you think sent the note... Father Christmas? The Easter Bunny?"

Sami whimpers, "When Rafe sees this..."

EJ blows, "He is the last person we are gonna tell!"

Vivian finds Carly at the hospital. She gushes and Carly shuts her up, "I know you planted that corpse."

"If I'm the bad girl here," says Vivian, "Why is it you seem to be the one with the guilty conscience?"

Hope says those little words Bo has been longing to hear, "Our marriage is over. I can't care any more. But there is one more thing you need to know about Carly."

Nathan says he had nothing to do with Melanie having to work Christmas. Phillip reminds him Melanie has made her decision. Nathan says he hopes she doesn't regret it.

Maggie admires Melanie's diamond. She congratulates her. Melanie wonders, "Do you really mean that?"

"Now you've gotten what you wanted," says Mags.

"Lucky me," whines Melanie, "Skeptical you." Maggie wishes her the best. Melanie leaves, "I know what I'm doing."

"I hope so," whispers Maggie.

Sami and EJ bicker. EJ tells her they are going to do exactly what the kidnappers want. Sami wants to share with Rafe. The doorbell interrupts. EJ answers as the Rafester shows up, "What's going on?"

Mia and Gabi come back into the kitchen. Gabi mentions volunteering. Maggie goes into action. She tells Gabi she can use her considerable influence to get her a job emptying bedpans that pays nothing and that nobody wants. She agrees to talk to the volunteer coordinator.

Mia steps up and announces she wants to be a candy-striper too.

Maggie decides to pre-qualify them, "I'll give you the test that will indicate if you're both candy-striper material." She has them stand in front of her, "OK, take a deep breath... in and out."

The girls comply. "That does it," says Maggie, "You both passed the test. If you breathe, you qualify to be a volunteer at the hospital."


Vivian taunts Carly, "You're acting like I committed murder. And that's something that should be punished severely." Carly walks away from her. Vivian says to herself, "Your love child will help me hurt you."

Hope says, "I only wanted to know Carly's secret because I wanted to (say it with her) be there for you. I wanted to protect you. Now I have no interest. Carly and her secret can go to hell." Hope walks out.

Brady tells Arianna the word is out on her being a drug dealer. Arianna thinks she can fix this. She says she has to meet Troy and push things. Off she goes.

"Maybe there is something I can do, too," says Brady.

Anna has prepared the second note, "But will it ever be sent? That is the burning question."

Sami struggles with whether or not to blurt things out. Rafe grills her. "There is something I have to tell you," says Sami.

Melanie meets Phillip at the pub. Smoochies. She thinks something may be wrong, "And don't tell me nothing's wrong because I can read you like a celebrity gossip blog."

"I don't read those," says Phillip, "Prevuze is the only blog for me."

Back at the hospital, Lexie scolds Nathan for not checking on Mr. Salinger yesterday. She also thinks he's distracted, "I know Phillip and Melanie just got engaged. I also know you and Melanie had feelings for each other. Is that what's distracting you?"

"I'm dealing with it," says Nathan.

"How," asks Lexie, "By giving up? Don't be stupid."

Brady confronts Victor for blabbing about Arianna. "What," growls Victor, "You're not proud of the fact you're dating a successful business woman?" Brady asks if Victor told Bo. Victor says no, but he will if he has to. He says he wants Arianna out of Brady's life.

Arianna finds Troy at the Java Café. She tells him she's been moving impressive amounts of product and wants to move up the corporate ladder. Troy tells her to forget it, "Know your place." he leaves. Arianna stares.

Rafe gets a call. EJ drags Sami back into the rumpus room and begs her to keep her mouth shut, "Once you tell him you can't just take it back. He says he has to leave but asks her to think over the consequences of telling Rafe. EJ goes. Rafe comes in.

Nathan asks, "You think I'm being stupid?"

Lexie dishes out her advice for the lovelorn, "If you love Melanie and you think she loves you, say something. Do something. You may not have much time."

Phillip says, "I've got an idea."

"What," giggles Melanie, "Spend New Year's Eve on Times square? Throw a lavish party?"

"I know Vivian and my mom have been giving you a hard time about the wedding, so we're going to elope."

That sound you just heard was the lead balloon that just crashed in the pub.

Maggie agrees to help the girls become candy-stripers. Gabi leaves. Maggie asks what Mia is up to. She thinks Mia's interest in being a candy-striper means she's being competitive with Gabi.

Mia whines, "You make it seem like I don't have a mind of my own and I'm selfish and it's all about me."

BINGO!

"That's what my mom used to say to me," says Mia, "My whole life she's made me feel like a loser... you know like some slut who couldn't say no in the back seat of some guy's car and got pregnant. I'm going to do my mom a favor. I'm going to pretend she's dead."

Carly shows up for another heapin' helpin' of Bo. She tells him about Vivian being at the hospital, "Hope saw us kissing, didn't she. I'm sorry."

Hope arrives back at the Kiriakis mansion. She hears Vivian talking to Victor and telling him Carly is a mess, "This will make it all that much easier to destroy her."

Troy meets EJ at the dock. He tells him he met with Arianna and suddenly discovers his phone is missing.

Arianna finds the phone on the chair at the Java Café. She can't believe her good fortune, "Oh, boy! Free apps!"

Sami tells Rafe, "I have to do the right thing."

Rafe asks, "Does it have something to do with Sydney?"

"Not really," says Sami, "I bought a pair of those hideous boots Nicole saw. I think I should return them."

"I'm interested in band and pre-med," says Gabi."

"You'll fit right in at Salem hospital," says Mia, "Most of the doctors there can't tell the difference between a bedpan and a tuba."

Since high schools generally don’t offer pre-med classes, Gabi had better hope that Salem High hasn’t made budget cuts that have affected the band program. The best Gabi can expect is to learn about the birds and the bees in a health class.

Sami says she felt at Christmas like they were really working together and now thinks he's being distant, "What are you keeping from me?"

What? Sami is condescending to somehow allow EJ to work with her and her hunky ex-FBI toy boy to find Sydney? At the vigil, Sami and Rafe were lamenting the fact that if Nicole hadn’t switched babies they would be a perfect little family but EJ’s presence was complicating things. The Rafester also vowed to bring Sydney back to Sami. What part of that little conversation would make EJ want to be more cooperative? Sami aught to keep in mind that EJ’s support money is helping her pay her bills so she can continue her boinkfest with her freeloading boyfriend in her mother’s townhouse. I also find it interesting that Sami is grilling EJ about keeping something from her. Instead Sami should be asking her job-free boyfriend why he has been less than forthcoming with her about any details of his life.

Hope says those little words Bo has been longing to hear, "Our marriage is over.”

…Bo and the rest of us too. Maybe Hope and Ciara can catch up with Shawn and Belle and disappear into the sunset.

Mia steps up and announces she wants to be a candy-striper too.

Super duper – more hospital “drama”. I guess this means that Mia is quitting a paying job at the Java Café to empty bed pans. I personally don’t feel that’s a very good trade off.

"And don't tell me nothing's wrong because I can read you like a celebrity gossip blog."

"I don't read those," says Phillip, "Prevuze is the only blog for me."

Phillip has great taste in blogs. Women – not so much.

Nathan asks, "You think I'm being stupid?"

Any guy who would want to be involved with an 18-year-old scatter brain like Melanie is most definitely stupid.

It’s the Monday morning after a long holiday weekend. If it weren’t for Prevuze, I would be cranky and depressed about returning to work. Instead I'm cranky and depresssed about watching DOOL. Thanks for the jolt of morning fun Prevuze!!!

Literally sharing same brain as Leslie - again.

Loved Mia's invaluable advice to Gabi about dating Chad. And Maggie's pre-qual test for volunteers was very enlightening. I bet she borrowed that from the extensive interview process new doctors must undergo before joining Salem Hospital's staff. HA

Bo wonders if the "I thought it was you" defense he used after he got caught with Billie in the gas pit might work again.

Bo! Where’s your copy of the Guy Manual? I think you need some emergency advice.

Hope gives him that look women give men only when there is no gun available, "I'm sure it was difficult for you to restrain yourself. What a selfless man you are."

Whew! Hope’s inner shrew is bubbling up nicely. Tinged with just a pinch of snark, this should be pretty tasty.

Now that Hope has overheard Viv & Vic discussing Carly's "destruction" we can start suffering through our heroine's inner struggle - does she help the woman who is destroying her marriage or stand idly by and let Carly be destroyed? This is going to be a terrible strain. And I'm talking about the audience who will be suffering through this contrived nonsence.

Thanks, Prevuze, for the post-Christmas gift of slogging through this mess so we can zap to the good parts.

Why does it feel like EJ is testing Sami? If she tells Rafe than she cant be trusted. if she doesnt tell Rafe she is keeping things from him. Win win for EJ. What is with him finding the note and then going off to meet troy? EJ has to know where Sidney is. No one compartmentalize like that. LOL

OK, what I'm about to propose is completely preposterous. But keep in mind this is DOOL.

Victor and Carly were once married in the past. Despite the fact he now hates her guts, about 16 years ago they got together once and the child is his (this is another reason Lawrence went insane.) So, if it turns out to be Melanie then Phillip is about to marry his sister. They can dig out the old Marie and Tommy Horton scripts. They're a bit yellowed and cobwebby but still useable (the scripts, not the actors. Well maybe the actors are a bit webby now, too, who knows.) Food for thought.

What makes this indignation of Hope's so ridiculous is Bo has a point - she's the one who moved out for no real reason and has been confiding in Justin. It's only a matter of time until they hit the sheets.

I'm not around any kids in the teen scene but I just can't believe they're all lining up to be candy stripers. Good point, Leslie, about Mia doing that and working at the Java. Yeah, right!

I can understand EJ's reluctance to give any info to the Salem PD. Given their record so far of turning up anything useful. He probably left to meet Troy just to escape the eruption of Mount Sami.

LOL over Bo helping Carly with her contacts and
him using the gas-in-the-pit excuse. HAHAHA

Thanks, Prevuze, for being the bright spot on a frozen Monday morning! :D

So, if it turns out to be Melanie then Phillip is about to marry his sister. They can dig out the old Marie and Tommy Horton scripts.

Except Marie/Tommy happened in times where girls usually waited till the wedding night to have sex. The characters didn´t know but viewers did, so the whole "thrilling" point of that storyline was felt creepy whenever they went romantic praying they will be able to control themselves or something interrupts them before the incest happens. Melanie and Phillip already went there and more than once, so it would accomplish nothing except made everyone disgusted.

I'm not around any kids in the teen scene but I just can't believe they're all lining up to be candy stripers.

I´m not trying defend the writers, but they made clear the only reason why Mia is suddenly interested in candystripping is keep control over Gabbi (and Chad). Seems they made switch and Gabby will now be the sweet nice girl and Mia the blond bitch. Good for them as I think it suits the actors better.

I have been dying to comment to someone, somewhere, ever since I saw Anna clipping out letters for her ransom letter and mentioning how it was "such a time consuming way to write a letter". Prevuze already commented on her lack of gloves; which I noticed too. Doesn't she have a computer? Printer? Photo printer? Email? Text/picture messaging? This is 2009. Even if it was 1999 - there were still computers & email. She's writing a 1969 ransom note! Via snail mail and a hard-copy picture! In this day you can email a ransom note & attach a picture file! If she was smart (okay, okay) she's buy a prepaid cell and text her demands and attach a picture. Sending these notes the way she is - this storyline is going to take forever. Okay - now its done bothering me. Thank you.
