"I'm not going to lose Sydney to some teenaged punk!" she grumbles. When she
spots the baby sitting alone, she starts to freak. EJ comes in and she asks
him why no one was watching the child. She's afraid a 'hoodlum' could have
come in. He's sure something is up. She wants Mary fired. He tells her to be
angry with him and wonders why she is being so irrational. Nicole claims she
heard a report about a kidnapping and got paranoid. After putting Sydney to

child," Mel says. She insists that she was only trying to do the right
thing. As she cries, she turns and runs into Brady. She tells Brady what
happened and how Steph has been treating her. She could have been with
Philip, but she's sure that he was just looking for someone to fill the
