The Fuzzy End Of The Lump
Whimper-blubber-bawl-wah, "EJ, I can't."
Faye sits at her break-table, gets up and heads back to work. She bumps into Rafe. "Hello, Fay. I need to ask a few questions about your daughter."
Nicole gives Marco Baker's address, "Go do whatever you do."
Marco asks, "You want me to take him out? Whack him?"
Nicole asks, "Can't you just put him under house arrest?"
"Do you want me to read him his rights," asks Marco.
"No," says Nicole, "Just keep him there until you hear from me." Somewhat disgusted Marco leaves to carry out his mission. Nicole says, "Sorry, Dick. You shoulda stayed dead." Brady shows up.
Baker gets a call from his old pal, "Charlie, Your timing is impeccable."
Ciara tells Bo the wallets belong to Roman, Abe and Justin. She wonders why Mommy had those wallets. Bo dunno, but you betcha he will find out.
Hopeless prepares for her dastardly deed, "Brady, You are a dead man. I know. I've slept with you."
Twinkie shows up and Bo pawns off Ciara. They leave and Justin calls wanting to talk about Hope.
Hopeless slinks around the DiMera mansion den. She picks up a letter opener as Vivian walks in, "Hope, I know you're angry with me..."
Hopeless interrupts, "No I'm not. Carly tried to poison my mind but it didn't work."
Vivian rants about Carly stabbing Lawrence and says she knows Bo hates her, "You need to stop Carly."
"I know what I need to do," says Hopeless.
Sami bawls. Dejected-rejected EJ thinks he may have misjudged the situation. Sami blithers and tells him she knows she wouldn't have made it through the last few months without him. EJ figures he should have dragged her back to his cave by her hair.
"I care about you," says Sami.
EJ consults the Guy Manual, "If you have asked her to marry you, and her response is 'I care about you,' listen very carefully to the next word out of her mouth. If it is 'but,' you have about as much chance of getting her to the altar as her sister."
Sami continues, "But a part of me still has feelings for Rafe. I can't say yes while that is true. I'm sorry." She runs off. Get the girl some junior high guidance counseling.
Brady asks who the guy was. Nicole says a news station messenger. She cooks up a story why he was there, "What are you doing here?"
"You really know how to sweep a girl off her feet," says Nicole.
Bo joins Justin at the pub. Justin is concerned about Hope, "It's like she's two different people."
"She's different, all right," says Bo.
Hope says Bo has nothing to fear from Carly. Vivian is delighted to hear that. Hope says she thinks Carly had a case for killing Lawrence, though, "There are a lot of women out there just like Carly. If you don't want to end up like me stop obsessing over dead Lawrence and keep an eye on your live husband." She walks off.
Maggie puts the finishing touches on a cake. Vivian shows up at the door. Maggie asks, "Did something happen to Victor?"
"Yes," says Vivian, "You."
Brady continues to do Nicole. She pushes away, "I'm glad to see you. But this place..."
Brady asks, "Do I look like I'm concerned about the place? I've been thinking and remembering. I want to give it a shot. You are the hottest former grandma I've ever had."
Nicole asks, "So things with you and Arianna are really over?"
"You are the one," says Brady.
"The one," asks Nicole, "What does that mean?"
"It means I'm horny and you're easy." Nicole is stunned.
Rafe sits with Fay and asks for honest answers. Fay begs off. She says she has to get back to work and leaves. Rafe calls Timbo and tells him he found Fay.
EJ chases Sami into the rumpus room. They repeat the last scene pretty much word-for-word with Sami continuing to toss rejection after rejection and EJ whimpering after her like he's a lost puppy and she's a Milk Bone. EJ decides this is a good thing because they are finally being honest with each other, "I'm honestly following you around the room leaving a trail of drool and you're honestly rejecting me. I know Rafe is in your head, but I don't accept it will always be that way."
"I'm in love with him," says Sami, "I'm not going to tell you I'll marry you while I still have feelings for someone else."
"But you love me, too," says EJ. I see it in your eyes."
"My feelings are confused," says Sami. Not as confused as she is, though.
"But we have changed," says Mr. Desperate. Changed yes. Matured no. Sami wonders what about all the horrible things she has done. "I've done horrible things myself," says EJ, "See — we're compatible!" The slobbering mass of desperation begs for a chance.
Rafe uses his advanced algebra skills to guess Fay's locker combination. He sneaks into the locker, looks at the contents and pulls out a big envelope.
Brady says he hopes he didn't come on a little strong. Nicole says, "That's not it. It's just that I can't believe you're here and you're not here because I messed up."
"I'm here because I love you." Nicole dives in for some looovvvveeee...
Hopeless is at
Sami continues to blubber, "I can't marry you until I'm 100% certain. And I'm not." 100% Certain — no. 100% off her unstable rocker — yes.
Bo tells Justin he's off to talk to Hope. He leaves. Justin sighs.
Hopeless calls Baker. She lectures him for calling 911 after her botched imm-Bo-lation. She says she'll be taking off soon and thanks him for his loyalty. He suggests one last drink before she goes. "No time," says Hopeless, "This has to be goodbye." She cuts off the call.
Vivian says she's concerned for Maggie. She scolds her for making a pass at Victor.
Hopeless plants the knife in a cushion. Bo arrives.
Santeen music plays as EJ tries to make Sami take the ring, "I have no use for it. I don't care what you do with it. Put it in a sock."
Sami has a better idea, "Put a sock in it. It's a gorgeous ring."
EJ says he got it in London, "This wasn't an impulse. I love you." He puts the ring in her hand, "You are the love of my life. If you will have me, I will promise to be the best husband and love you more than anything."
Sami turns the waterworks on again, "I don't know what to say."
Johnny watches, "Why she Mommy crying?"
Rafe opens the envelope. It appears to be empty, "Dammit!" Fay comes back as he shuts the locker. Fay asks, "Want a cup of lousy coffee?"
"With an offer like that how can I refuse?" He notices Fay is shaking and asks if she's nervous. Fay says if Nicole is in trouble she is nervous. He tells her Nicole is mixed up with EJ again.
"EJ," repeats Fay, "Nicole always ends up with the fuzzy end of the lump." Rafe asks if she's been in contact with Nicole lately.
Brady certainly is in contact with her...
Johnny the bum finds Baker. He hands him a wad-o-cash, "That filly you bet paid 50 - 1. Maybe now that you're flush, you can come back to the poker table."
"I've been hanging around Hope and Nicole," says Baker, "I'm not flush, I'm flushed. And I'm leaving for good."
Bo says he thinks something is terribly wrong with Hope, "I need to take action. Things can't stay the way they are."
"And they shouldn't," says Hopeless, "Everything that's wrong, you caused it. All of it."
Maggie insists she's not throwing herself at Victor. She says she doesn't know why Victor is hanging around, but insists they are just friends, "You wouldn’t know about that, because you don't have any."
Sami insists she wasn't crying because she was sad. Johnny asks, "Does that mean you're getting married?" Sami and EJ exchange a look.
Fay says she hasn't had significant contact with Nicole. Rafe thinks she's holding out on him. "There is one more thing," says Fay.
Bo asks about Ciara. Hopeless says she just made that up to get him there. "Lovely home... Memories... I could have asked you to come to Victor's but this is the perfect place to put a period at the end of the sentence. It's time for us to say goodbye."
"Break out the champagne," says Bo.
Vivian and Maggie argue. Vivian shouts, "Leave Victor alone or you'll be sorry."
Maggie gives her intelligent, well-considered response, "BITE ME!"
Vivian leaves. Outside, she mumbles, "Poor choice of words. My bite is worse than my bark."
Sami wants to know if EJ and Johnny have talked about the possibility of Sami marrying EJ. EJ turns to Johnny and says Mommy doesn't want to get married right now. "But it would be awesome," says Johnny. EJ assures Johnny even though they aren't getting married, it will be just the same.
Rafe says, "You can tell me. I swear it will be better for Nicole."
"She made me swear not to tell anyone," says Fay. Smooth-talking Rafe convinces her to open up. "Nicky sent me an envelope and told me to guard what was inside with my life."
Rafe asks, "Does that mean you know what's inside."
Well, Nicole certainly knows what's been inside, "Things will be different now." She reminds Brady he said he loved her. Brady thinks things will be good for them from now on.
Marco waits, "Dr. Baker, why are you late."
Baker sits outside and writes a letter to Hope telling her he's had a windfall and is taking off, "Just so you know, I'll always love you."
Bo wants to know what kind of goodbye this is. Hope rants about Carly moving into his bed. "You're scaring me," says Bo, "I don't want you to hurt yourself."
"I won't hurt myself," says Hopeless, she pulls out her Marlena Evans Salem Serial Killer Limited Edition butcher knife, "It's you. On behalf of women everywhere. Goodbye, Bo Brady."
