Carly sits anyway, "We have to deal with each other honestly."
"OK," says Hope, "I honestly hate your guts."
Roman is on the phone barking orders. He hangs up as Bo joins him. Bo offers to drop his meeting to help Roman with his search. "What I want you to drop," says Roman, "is your obsession with Carly Manning."
Vivian looks through her binoculars and squeals, "Oh! An American Goldfinch! It's awfully late in the season for it to be here." Victor rolls his eyes. "Oh," says Vivian, "I must be boring you you to death."
"I'm so bored," says Victor, "I feel like one of the viewers. To me these birds are just flying rodents. Vivian thinks Victor is jealous about Kate's marriage, but assures him he will have the last laugh.
Phillip is on the phone with Melanie trying to talk his way into her pant... uh, life. He hangs up and Kate busts in.
It must be phone day on DOOL. Nicole calls EJ. She tells him Sydney is with her and is safe, "I'm sorry things ended badly for us. Fact is, you were nothing but abusive and selfish and all I was trying to do was protect you and Sydney from Sami. Now I am out of your life and so is Sydney. This is a goodbye call."
EJ asks if she understands what will happen to her, "You have to know how this will end." Nicole tells him this wasn't supposed to happen. She says when she came to the mansion she heard EJ and Sami yelling and decided she has to protect Sydney from a lifetime of that.
Out in the audience, the gals wonder who will protect them from a lifetime of this.
Roman tells Bo his involvement in Carly's case is getting Abe in political trouble with the DA. Bo says, "Relax... Carly is moving out."
Carly tells Hope it never was her intention to steal Bo. Hope snorts, "I have a hard time figuring out just what your intentions are. And what's Vivian up to with first accusing you of murder and then having a miraculous change of heart?"
Gabi and Will snipe at each other at the Java Café. Arianna comes in and attempts to referee. "No point defending him," says Gabi, "he's a total jerk." She turns to Will, "Stay out of my life." She turns on her heel and leaves.
EJ insists Nicole has to come back with Sydney. Nicole refuses. She reminds EJ he threw Sydney out. EJ reminds her that's because he thought she was someone else's child. "You threw away any claim you had to her," says Nicole, "So this is goodbye."
Arianna tells Will Gabi didn't help Nicole on purpose. She leaves. Will stares.
Gabi walks at the pier and decides she should just go back home. Arianna finds her and softens. She apologizes for butting in but Gabi isn't in the mood to reconcile with her druggie sister. She thinks Arianna intervened because she's afraid Gabi will spill the beans about her drug habit.
Vivian continues to bird watch and says Kate will be jealous of her being with Victor, "Oh, an indigo bunting! I never would have believed it!"
Kate tells Phillip Vivian is back in town and has attached herself to Victor. Phillip wonders if Victor is looking to get married again. Kate gasps, "Dear God not to that old hag!"
Carly tries to get through to Hope. She tells her she's moving out. Hope ain' impressed. Carly goes on and tells her she doesn't want to cause problems between Bo and Hope.
Bo tells Roman he has to help Carly iron out a few issues. You can help Carly out," says Roman, "But you'd better get your marriage back on track fast."
Bo snarls, "Nice having this conversation with you. I'm outta here." He storms out.
Phillip says he was just pulling Kate's chain. He accuses her of jealousy. Kate denies it but says she didn't want to see Vivian come back to town ever, "I don't want to think Vivian could drive a wedge between them." Phillip reminds her there is already a wedge between them and tells her to get out.
Kate turns and there stands Vivian, "OMG! It's him! Phillip! My son! My baby!" Hugs. Kate huffs. Victor pops some corn and enjoys the show.
EJ tells Nicole her little scheme won't work, "If the police don't my men will find you and they will punish you." He hears Sydney in the background.
Nicole tells him Sydney is fine, "But we are done." She hangs up. EJ goes to his desk and picks up another phone, "Did you get the trace?" Of course not. The Salem cops couldn't trace a call with Caller-ID, a GPS and a map with a big red "X" marked on it. EJ slams the phone as Stefano walks in and offers to call his men. EJ says he's going with the cops on this one, "So you just go to hell."
"I'm not headed there yet," says Stefano, "But don't worry... I have a reservation."
Arianna says she wasn't worried Gabi was going to gab about the drugs, "It's true. The drugs are mine but I am not dealing or using. I can't tell you everything but you need to trust me. And you can't say anything about the drugs, do you hear me? I will tell you all about it when I can."
That doesn't work for Gabi. She walks off in a snit. Arianna calls Roman and asks to see him.
Fay comes back to see Nicole. Actually it's Nicole who has asked to see her again, "I need fake passports. I can't leave town without them, please think of something." Fay says she knows a guy at the diner who might be able to help. Nicole begs her to call him now. Fay tells Nicole to stay strong for her daughter and agrees to make the call.
Stefano insists Roman will bungle this case like he always does. EJ wants to do things by the book, "You will respect my decision. If you don't you will never see your grandchildren again."
"Big deal," says Stefano, "No one around here has seen Giovanni in months as it is."
Carly hopes by getting herself out of the picture it will help Bo and Hope. Hope doesn't know what to make of Carly, "Let's face it, just because you aren't living with Bo doesn't mean he will walk away from you."
Bo's timing is impeccable. He walks up to the table, "That's right. I won't walk away."
"By the time I'm finished with you," says Hope, "You won't be able to walk."
Vivian gushes about Phillip. Victor turns to Kate, "She's overwhelmed."
"OMG," says Vivian, "I just want to know everything that's happened to you."
"Interesting," says Phillip, "That I have a whole new face, but you recognized me immediately."
"The writers forget little details," says Vivian, "Don't be too hard on them. They're already punished enough by having to work at the bottom of the literary barrel."
Out in the foyer Victor says he finds Vivian to be a breath of fresh air. Kate says she has brought nothing but misery into their lives.
"Did you know," asks Victor, "Your friends can make you fat?" Kate can't wait to find out where Victor is going with this one. "I read an article about it," says Victor, "People you surround yourself with can affect your habits. Having Vivian around makes me happy. You're not welcome at our little family reunion. Out."
Arianna tells roman she has a new boss as the drug dealer, "I'm back to square one. I need money fast. I will find this guy and hand him to you on a platter."
"I always wondered what came on those platters of chowdah here," says Roman, "I'm glad you want to bring him down, but where is all this enthusiasm coming from all of a sudden?"
Vivian asks about Phillip's love life, "Is there someone special?"
"So," says Phillip, "I see you don't get out on the Internet much. Well not everyone thinks she's perfect but..."
Vivian interrupts, "Well, if they ever give you any problems about her, just call me."
EJ tells Stefano he doesn't trust either the Brady's or Stefano, "The only one I can trust is me. Unless I'm trying to figure out if a woman is pregnant. Then I need a little help."
Roman wonders what lit a fire under Arianna. "I want my life back," says Arianna, "I just want to get past this, and fast."
Roman warns her to watch her back "You know this guy is dangerous."
Stefano thinks EJ is being disrespectful. EJ reminds Stefano he drove another son away. Stefano is indignant that EJ is discussing Tony. EJ tells him he's doing what Tony did and breaking away from Stefano. Stefano says he understands that, "But let me have the last gesture of love. Let me bring Sydney and Nicole home to you."
EJ gets nasty, "One final warning... stay away."
Kate comes in as EJ leaves. Stefano tells her EJ is making a terrible mistake, "The way things are going I could lose my son and grandchildren. God only knows."
God booms, "How can I know, when the writers don't even have a clue what's going to happen?"
Kate says, "Brace yourself. I have some news."
Fay gets back and says things happened fast, but the passport will cost almost as much as she gave to Nicole. Nicole gets the money, "Whatever it takes." Fay doesn't want her to do this. Nicole begs.
Carly tells Bo and Hope, "The two of you need your space." There isn't enough space in the Salem Superdome for that, but they settle for the cramped table at the Cheatin' Heart. Carly zips out.
Hope tells Bo she thinks he will keep helping Carly even though she's moving out. She thinks that's a bad thing for their relationship. She also tells him she can't move back in the way things are now, "You are still attached to her. The more things change the more they stay the same." She gets up to leave.
Bo intercepts her and kisses her, "I love you." Hope stomps out. Bo stares.
Kate tells Stefano his ex wife is back in town.
"Ah," says Stefano, "Lawrence is dead and Carly is back in town. I should have predicted Vivian would follow soon. Did she say anything about me or her plans?"
"Certainly not to me," says Kate, "but she's trying to make cozy with Victor."
Vivian apologizes for gushing over Phillip. He asks Victor for a few moments alone with her. Victor leaves. Phillip growls, "Lose the smile. We are going to get a few things straight right now."
Arianna tells Roman she wants to get the job done. Roman tells her getting caught is not an option. "I know these dirt bags would just as soon drop you as say hello," says Arianna, "but this guy is going down." EJ walks in.
Fay gets back and tells Nicole they're working on the fake passports and they will be ready soon, "He wants to meet you at the bus station. It's on a walkway or an alley or something. He says you won't have any trouble finding it."
"With directions that specific, how could I have trouble," says Nicole.
Fay gives Nicole what's left of her money. Nicole takes the paltry amount out and stares at it. Vivian hugs her, "After what you're been through, I'd do anything to help you escape. Anything."
Sydney sits off to the side, "Who's going to help me escape?"
