The Horton-Brady Get Out Of Jail Free Card
Brady walks in behind her, "Because you're such a source of comfort to him?" Henderson scoots.
Vivian asks, "Why must you express your petulance in front of the servants."
Victor walks up to Bo and Hope's front door, turns and yells at the press, "Get the hell out of here you pack of jackals!" He goes inside and finds Bo, "So, when did you plan on telling me about Hope?"
Boris Badenov escorts Hope into the interrogation room with Abe. Hizonner ain' a happy camper.
Sami tells Will she said yes to EJ's marriage proposal. Will is underwhelmed. Sami says she wants an honest reaction from him. Will doubts that, "You know that is the last thing you are looking for."
Rafe wanders at the pier and finds EJ talking on the phone with Stefano. He hears EJ announce that Sami has agreed to marry him. Rafe reels, "It's not gonna happen, pal."
EJ tells Stefano to keep things quiet about the engagement, "This is it. There is nothing you can do about it."
Sami says, "I hate this passive-aggressive thing. My style is more aggressive-aggressive."
Will tells Sami she's never put her kids first, "Do not start now. Not for EJ."
Rafe takes his frustration out on a punching bag. He bobs, weaves, punches, backs off and goes in for more. Fists and sweat flies. Rafe is stronger but the bag has a mental edge.
Vivian suggests since Brady is a freeloader there he should be more civil. Brady says Victor loves few people, "He loves me... Victor... Bo... Victor... Hope... and Victor. Hope branded me and Bo's world is crashing down. With his family in freefall Victor will realize he's been wasting his time with you and hopefully kick your ass out of here."
Bo tells Victor he can't take his stuff today. Victor softens. Bo says, "It's like Hope was a different person. She looked at me with venom and anger in her eyes. I'm used to that, but then she tried to kill me." Victor vows to take care of Hope and get her through this. Bo thinks many people will support Hope but not him, "I'm responsible for what happened."
Abe lectures Hope for not having an attorney. "You're not my lawyer," whines Hope, "You're my victim."
"I'm your friend," says her friendly victim. Hope don' wan' no stinkin' special treatment. Abe says he's talking about a fair trial, not a pass, "After the trial, princess Hope will get the pass."
Hope says, Maybe the jury would buy the pill excuse but not my children, Ciara and what's his name."
Vivian thinks Brady should treat his grandfather's wife with more respect, but she says she realizes his life is in shambles. Brady walks out.
"He's right about one thing," says Vivian, "I should tend to Victor in his hour of need."
Victor insists this is Carly's fault. Maggie "The Big Buttinski" Horton walks in.
Hope thinks her kids will hate her. Abe tries some esrever ygolohcysp. "All right, then," he growls, "then throw in the towel. What a legacy that will give Ciara!"
Lexie walks in, "Abe, stop it!"
Hope wants more of a beating, "He's right, Lexie."
Sami insists she and EJ have grown very close. Will doesn't buy it, "You're so polite around him"
The confused little schoolgirl asks, "Isn't that a good thing?"
"No," says the adult in the crowd, "But I don't wanna talk about it any more. I want to talk about Rafe."
Rafe beats up on the poor punching bag, "Oof... grunt... oof... grunt..."
EJ calls Boris Badenov down at the cop-shop and demands to get in to see Hope, "You'd better see that happens or I'll tell people about our little arrangement." He heads for the cop-shop.
Lexie asks for a minute alone. Abe and Hope leave.
Lexie apologizes for Abe being dogmatic and hugs Hope. Tears gush but the Society Of Women Who Have Reached The Bottom Of The Barrel In Their Professions continues. Lexie comforts. Hope tells her to tell Abe she heard what he said and that she loves Ciara. Lexie leaves. Hope blubbers.
Maggie says she's there to check on Ciara. "She's not here," says Bo, "But the guys at the Salem chapter of Hell's Angels said they would watch her." Bo heads for the station. Good thing he has a GPS, or he might not be able to find it.
Victor growls, "Tell Hope's lawyer to bill me."
Bo erupts, "I don't need your damn money!" Bo does a 180° and apologizes. He says he loves Victor and thanks him for the offer as he leaves.
Victor turns to Maggie, "Looks like my son and I have trouble communicating."
"He said he loves you," says Maggie, "He knows why you came."
Victor says he misjudged everything and thought Bo and Hope would get through things, "I was arrogant and wrong." Maggie is silent. Victor growls, "Are you going to pass on an opening like that?"
"No," says Maggie, "Let's go for a walk." Victor's phone rings. Maggie asks, "Aren't you going to get that phone?"
"What phone," says Victor.
BULLETIN: SALEM MAN IGNORES RINGING PHONE. HELL FREEZES OVER. DETAILS AT ELEVEN.
Fade to Vivian, "All right, Victor, don't answer, but thanks to modern technology, I am your private stalker."
Hope flashes back to Ciara saying she was lying. EJ comes in for a "chat."
Sami insists she and Rafe are over, "EJ and I are compatible."
Will says, "I think you're lying to yourself."
Rafe beats up on the helpless bag. The cleaning lady says she's had enough.
Victor and Maggie sit on the bench by the pier. Things are cordial. Maggie says she's scared for Hope, "She coulda killed Bo. That's not like her. Hope likes to toy with her prey." Tears. Hugs.
Sami gets snotty, "It must be nice to be seventeen and know everything." It's better to be like Sami... thirtysomething with the mentality of an adolescent. Will decides he doesn't want to talk about it. So they talk about it. Sami insists this has nothing to do with Rafe, "I'm marrying EJ because he's changed and is being honest with me."
EJ taunts. Hope says she's sorry. EJ brushes it off. Hope wonders how EJ got in there. "Oh," chirps EJ, "Am I imposing? Did I cross a line? I'm sure all of your other victims are more concerned about not being invited to the Horton Christmas party. They will let bygones be bygones. Today I'm straight law and order. I will make sure you get what you deserve."
Bo walks in, "Don't you threaten my wife."
Abe and Lexie are at the beach with Ciara. Ciara asks if Hope will be there. Lexie tells her today it's just the four of them. She sends Ciara off to play with Theo. Abe and Lexie wonder if they have enough love between them for another young one. Maybe if the young one is a gerbil.
Vivian stalks as Maggie and Victor talk. Victor says, "You take care of Hope and I'll take care of you."
"I think you're pushing your advantage," says Maggie. Victor pushes a little more and suggests they go for coffee.
Vivian scowls, "You'd better not say yes."
"That sounds nice," says Maggie.
Vivian grits her teeth as they walk off, "You're going to stay away from what is mine or I'll teach you a lesson."
Bo orders EJ out. EJ says he said what he came to say. He turns to Hope, "You don't get the Horton-Brady get out of jail free card this time."
"Jerk," says Bo, "How did he get in here?"
"How is it the SPD is letting any of you in here," asks Hope. She says EJ has every right to tell her off. Bo doesn't think EJ has exactly led a blameless life. Hope thinks Bo should stay away from her case. Bo says how it looks is the last thing he's worried about. Brady shows up. Bo tells him to go easy and leaves.
Hope apologizes. "I thought maybe you should talk to someone who understands," says Brady, "I'll go see if I can find someone like that."
Sami and Will are at the pier. Sami tells him to stop apologizing and asks him to keep the engagement a secret. He agrees. Sami asks to be alone.
"If you want to be alone," says Will, "Maybe you shouldn't get married."
"Smart alec." Will leaves.
Rafe finds her, "Well, congratulations are in order."
Abe and Lexie talk about Ciara and Hope. Abe says Alice taught him family doesn't just mean the people you're related to. "I'm struck by your profundity," says Lexie.
"What are you talking about," asks Abe, "I didn't use a single four-letter word. God knows we've had some bad times, but now we have a new start. I think we're ready to think about more than Theo with ourselves."
"Good," says Lexie, "I've always wanted a puppy."
Hope thinks it would be easier if Brady just yelled at her. Brady thinks people are glossing over the reason Hope needed the pills in the first place, "What I wanted to say to you... just watch out for that voice that says you can't come back and it's hopeless. Look at the people you've helped."
"I didn't help you and Arianna," says Hope.
"That's all right," says Brady, "If I Patch things up with Nicole, I can still get some."
Rafe comes into the locker room. He and his buddy Joe banter as Sami storms in. Joe decides to get dressed. Sami asks, "Why did you congratulate me?"
"Heard you're getting married," says Rafe, "You're out of your ever loving mind and not the woman I fell in love with."
Joe taps Sami on the shoulder, "Could you hand me my pants?"
Bo shows up at the DiMera mansion. EJ answers the door. Bo threatens, "If anything happens to Hope, I will kill you."
Maggie and Victor are in her kitchen. She reminds him he said he was wrong at Bo and Hope's house. She says she was wrong, too, "I asked you to stay away and I missed you. I still don't think you should hurt Vivian's feelings."
"She doesn't have any," growls Victor.
"That's exactly what I'm talking about," says Maggie, "She's your wife. You should respect that."
Victor asks, "How about if I pretend to respect her around you?" They talk about friendship. "I'm not a spiritual man," says Victor, "But I think friendship is a gift from whoever is in charge up there. Shouldn't we just enjoy each other's company?"
"I hate to encourage you," says Maggie, "but you're right."
Gus shows up. Vivian rants, "That red headed harrigan has lured Victor into her lair." Gus tries to calm her down. Vivian says Maggie has to pay.
Brady tells Hope not to give up, "And now I'm going out there and continue to make a mess of my life."
EJ reminds Bo they have security cameras, "We may actually use them someday. So... Hope is fragile?" EJ aims below the belt, "And how's Dr. Manning doing, by the way? I get it. If I do anything to Hope, I'll incur the wrath of the man she tried to set on fire." Bo huffs off. EJ mumbles, "And I thought my relationship was strange."
Sami says she just wanted to tell Rafe about the engagement herself – at the right time, "But I'm glad you know because now you have to accept the fact that we are over."
Rafe snorts, "Great." He goes over to his locker.
Sami blows her stack, "Don't turn your back on me! I wasn't done admiring your glistening bare chest. I want you to acknowledge you did this." Rafe says he thinks EJ has conned Sami. Sami explodes.
Rafe shuts her up, "You're lying to yourself and I can prove it." Dr. Rafe moves in for a tonsillectomy.
