On Top Of The World.
Nicole bumps into Brady, she tries to get away. He asks her what's wrong.
She tells him that EJ has forbidden her to see him. He can't believe that
she is cowering like this. She sounds more like a Stepford wife than the
proud and mischievous woman he's always known. She explains that Philip saw
them together and thought they were having an affair. He offered to keep it
quiet if EJ gave up the fuel project. As he tries to wrap his head around
this, she repeats that she has to cut him out of her life for her sake and
the baby's. He wonders why she would give in to Philip. She explains that
this is the only way to keep EJ from poking around in her life. She is so
close to getting everything she wants... He advises her to think of her
daughter and reminds her that someone could come back to blackmail her at
any time. Nicole tells him he would be happier staying away from her. "I am
very happy where I am," he says. She claims that she is on top of the world.
Brady is unconvinced. She seems to be letting a man control her and it's
only a matter of time until her whole life goes up in smoke. He's depressing
and scaring her. Brady thinks the woman EJ loves isn't who she really is.
"Don't you know you're worth being loved for who you really are?" he asks.
She knows. The topic quickly turns to Sami. He doesn't know why she is so
worried. She admits that she doesn't feel worthy of EJ or anyone else. Brady
tells her how great she is. She thanks him for being the kind of friend she
doesn't deserve and kisses his cheek.
pops up on Elvis' doorstep after receiving a call from him. EJ informs him
that his company is no longer interested in the fuel project. Before he can
shut the door in Philip's face, Philip asks him what this is really about.
EJ claims he is trying to protect his family from danger. Philip is offended
and claims that he would never threaten Nicole. EJ orders him to stay away
from her. "You don't order me around. I'm not afraid of you or your father,"
Philip shoots back. "Then you're a bigger fool than I thought," EJ mumbles
as he closes the door.
begins to cry as Will spontaneously appears in Lucas' hospital room. She
hugs her son and tells him how much she missed him. He demands to know
what's been going on and how his father was nearly blown up. They evade the
questions and ask him where he plans to stay. Sami invites him home with
her. Lucas sends Sami to get Johnny while he takes some time alone with his
son. After she leaves, Lucas tells his son he can't believe how much he's
grown up. Will demands to know why he is lying to him again. His father
explains that he and Chloe hit a rough patch and he ended up drinking...and
then he ended up in a gas explosion. But he hopes Will isn't sorry he came
and Victor sit in the pub. He feels vindicated that she finally agrees with
him about Chloe. She plans to cause deep and lasting psychological suffering
for her. First, she needs to find her son a more suitable mate. "An
inflatable sex doll?" he suggests. He's glad to see her nasty side is back.
Stefano arrives and asks to join them. Victor tells him to get lost. Stefano
accuses him of being a lout but Kate asks him to sit down. Stefano suggests
that they focus on what they have in common: A devotion to family. "I think
I'm going to throw up," Victor announces. When Kate tells Stefano that she
is in remission, he wants to celebrate. Victor is disgusted and walks off.
Stefano tells Kate that she has a beautiful aura. He digs for details about
her romantic life and asks her out for dinner. She offers to think about it.
arrives at Maggie's to pick up Allie. Maggie is standoffish but Chloe wishes
they could be polite. Lucas has partial amnesia so they don't have to tell
him the truth and break his heart again. Maggie doesn't want to lie. "Don't
you think that Lucas deserves better than you?" the redhead asks. Chloe
explains that God gave her a sign that she and Lucas are meant to be
together. She begs her not to reveal what happened. Maggie sighs and agrees
not to say anything to Lucas.
returns to the townhouse and Chloe soon arrives with Allie. When Chloe
notices that Sami has had her baby, Sami puts the kid in the nursery and
tells Chloe to get out before Will comes back. After chasing her out the
door, Sami thinks about baby Grace. Her thoughts are interrupted when Elvis
comes knocking on her door. He waves a stuffed penguin at her and she lets
him in. They talk about Johnny and she repeats that she doesn't want him in
the same house as Stefano and Nicole, but she can see that he was well cared
for. He tells her how much her son missed her and she tells him how grateful
she is for everything he's done. She touches his arm. There's a pause. He
wonders why she seems sad. The baby begins crying so she runs off. He calls
his father to talk business until Sami returns with the children. When she
send him off to brush the children's teeth, she calls the convent and tells
them that she is starting to put a plan together to bring her daughter back.
Elvis comes back out and she suggests he must not be happy at home if he is
there with her. She wonders if he is reconsidering marrying Nicole. "What if
I made her worst nightmare come true and married you?" he asks. Meanwhile,
Chloe has returned to the hospital. When Chloe walks into Lucas' room, Will
instantly accuses her of being responsible for his father almost dying.
returns to the mansion. He's tired. Philip hands him the torn up copy of the
fuel project and explains that EJ gave it up. He's happy but wonders how
Melanie managed to get it into EJ's hands anyway. "Find out or find a new
job," he demands. Philip isn't happy to be talked down to once again. Victor
guesses that something must be wrong between his son and Stephanie. Angrily,
Philip explains that he and Steph are finished and it's because of this

What About Mom And EJ?
wanders outside and remembers Chloe dumping him. "To hell with it," he
decides, shrugging it off. He walks into the Cheatin' Heart and has a
scotch. Chelsea comes in and sees him drinking alone. Although he warns her
that he's bad company, she sits down with him anyway. As she does, Max walks
out and spots them. He wanders over and shows her a text he just wrote:
'Ditch him'. She thinks he's being juvenile. Daniel walks away to make a
call and Max warns Chelsea that the doctor is a 'ticking time bomb'. When
the doctor returns, more miserable looking than before, he asks Chelsea to
leave him alone. She wants to know what's wrong. When she continues to pry,
he tells her that Kate is in remission. No one told her this so she is
thrilled to hear it. As she hugs him, Max watches and cringes until he walks
over and she tells him the good news. He goes back to work and she sits
down, still unsure why Daniel looks miserable. He's wondering what kind of
man he is; he has hurt a lot of people, including her, and he's not sure he
knows himself anymore. He tells her to go off and celebrate her good news
with Max. The doctor leaves and Chelsea sits with Max. She tells him that
she promised to have fun with him tonight. Throwing her arms around him, she
kisses him. A drunken Daniel watches through the window and imagines he sees
Chloe kissing Lucas. "Chloe, you did the right thing," he mumbles to
the hospital, Chloe apologizes for walking in on Lucas and Will. Will
apologizes for being accusatory. Chloe admits that she is to blame for a lot
of things but she hopes Lucas will forgive her. Sensing an awkward moment,
Will decides to make himself scarce. After he's gone, Lucas tells Chloe that
he blames himself for his drinking. He took her for granted and wants
another chance. She tells him that they can both change and be happy. She
wishes the last month had never happened. He makes her promise to tell him
when things are going wrong and stop acting crazy. When he begins trying to
figure out why he was at Daniel's, Nicole calls her and tells her to come
over so she can vent about Sami. After she gets off the phone, Lucas tells
Chloe that Sami lost the baby. He asks her not to let anyone find out about
Sami and EJ. "Find out what about mom and EJ?" Will asks as he returns.
Chloe decides it's time to go and leaves. Will wants to know what is going
on between his mother and the 'jerk'. "You're scared I'm gonna shoot EJ in
the back right?" he asks. Lucas doesn't want to hear him talk like that and
he wishes he hadn't come back to such a mess. After Will agrees to stay in
town, Lucas asks him for a favor: "I want you to be my best man." Will
shrugs and mopes off.
at the townhouse, EJ asks Sami, "What if I made Nicole's worst nightmare
come true and married you?" She guffaws. He suggests that she's jealous.
"Nicole has me and you don't," he states. She thinks he's arrogant. He
teases her and tells her that his private life is none of her business.
"You're the father of my children!" she blurts out. He wonders if he missed
something, but puts her slip down to her poor language skills. Nicole calls
and he tells her that he is with Sami. He assures her that Samantha is as
annoying as ever and offers to discuss this when he gets home. She hangs up
on him and Sami wonders if she'll be waiting for him with the rolling pin.
He tells her that women with babies get treated with patience. She pouts and
they argue about what's best for the children. Sami assumes he can't see
what is wrong with Nicole and Stefano. He laughs it off but she won't drop
it and claims that she knows how she would act if she was in Nicole's
situation. She tells him that having someone try to kill her made her
reflect on her life. Now that Nicole has his heart, she worries that Nicole
will hurt him. "A part of me will always love you," she admits. He smiles.
She says it was 'a very qualified statement'. When she makes him promise not
to let their son become like the other DiMeras, he shakes his head. "He's on
his own," he says. They need to let their child grow up naturally, not mold
him into something they want him to be. "It's like I'm seeing a side of you
that I never got to meet," she says. As she checks on the children, there's
a knock at the door. It's Rafe. Sami runs over to him and gives him a hug as
soon as he walks in the door. Elvis is startled.
the mansion, Nicole hands the baby to the maid and makes a vow: "Sami, you
are not taking EJ away from me! No matter what." Soon, Chloe arrives and
they begin discussing their problems. Chloe talks about dumping Daniel and
the miracle God granted her. Nicole is sarcastic and the topic turns to
Sami; she worries that Sami already has EJ running to her. "I don't think
you have to worry about Sami or that baby ever again," Chloe says. She
explains that Sami told Lucas that the baby died. Nicole wonders what Sami
and EJ are talking about then. Before she can call him, Chloe tears the
phone from her hands and advises her not to nag. Nicole decides not to let
Sami get to her.

The Full Service Agency.
and Chelsea are at the Cheatin' Heart. It's late so the place is empty. They
decide to toast to her grandmother's health. Max admits to Chelsea that he's
crazy about her. They toast with ginger ale and he tells her that her eyes are
pretty. They sit outside and she notices a crocus sticking out of the snow. They
talk about the promise of spring. After mixing some metaphors, they start to
make out. She stops, scared that this could be a mistake: She doesn't want to
lose him as a friend and has never dated anyone who means as much to her as he
does. He promises that things will work out. She decides to trust him, but she
hopes she won't screw things up again. Max is sure they've both grown
up since the last time they were together. She doubts she's any more mature. He
offers to simply have dinner with her and nothing else. Chelsea declares the
date momentarily postponed so she can just talk to Max 'the friend'. As a
friend, he tells her that something good is happening and she is scared. After
hearing this, she declares the date back on and they begin kissing.
home, Bo gets another flash of his vision. Hope sees how disturbed he is and
asks him what he's thinking about. It ripped his heart out when they were
separated, he explains. He doesn't want her to leave him like that again. She
knows he was looking out for her before, but senses more is wrong. With
difficulty, he admits that he had a vision of her making love to another man.
She thinks that's disgusting and awful. Hope knows this is as hard for him
as it is for her. He asks her if she came home because she wanted to or because
she felt she had to for Ciara. She assures him he is the only man she loves
and offers to prove it. As they hurry upstairs, Max and Chelsea arrive
downstairs. Chelsea tells Max that their date was great. They have trouble saying
goodnight and begin to make out again.
the mansion, Nicole tells Sydney, "Your dad is still
with that nasty woman who gave birth to you."
Unfortunately, Stefano walks in as she says this and demands to know what she
means. She explains that EJ is with Sami and she's upset. He wonders why she
feels so threatened and offers to solve her problems. "Why in God's name are you
so scared of her?" he probes. She claims the world was blissful without Sami. He
thinks she needs to calm down and leaves to get some tea. She gets dressed to
leave. He stops her and tells her not to run out and embarrass herself. Nicole
wants some privacy and storms off. Stefano is sure that she is going after Sami.
the town house, Elvis watches and bites his lip as Sami welcomes Rafe. After
they gush about seeing each other again, Sami introduces EJ to Rafe. She laughs
uncomfortably as Rafe tells EJ that he's heard all about him. They talk about
the laughing penguin and how Rafe got it for Johnny. "We're a full service
agency," Rafe tells EJ. While she gets the children, Rafe digs into EJ over the
custody battle. EJ defends himself and reminds the agent that he is no longer on
duty. After they snipe, Sami returns and they play with the children together.
As EJ leaves the room to put the children to sleep, Sami points out what a great
dad he is. "If I had a kid like Johnny with a mom like you, I wouldn't be so
concerned about pleasing my daddy," Rafe comments. She blushes. He gives her a
picture of Grace and tells her it's not right she isn't with her daughter.
She admits that she can't stop thinking about the baby and all of the 'firsts'
she will miss with her. He's upset and decides to leave. "Now you don't have to
protect me anymore," she tells him. She wishes he could help her and rests her
head on his shoulder. EJ watches in the distance. Rafe tells her that he has to
leave for D.C. Elvis interrupts and tells Sami that she needs to finish putting
the twins to bed. When she leaves to do that, Elvis tries to usher Rafe out. The
agent decides to stick around and suggests EJ leave. They argue and Rafe
suggests EJ is too possessive. Sami returns and asks EJ to leave. Rafe gets
a call telling him he has to leave tonight. She wishes he had more time and
walks him out. By the time they get to the hallway, she is nearly in tears and
makes him promise to come back. He kisses her forehead and then her lips. EJ
stands in the doorway and broods as he watches them.
pops up at the convent to see Sister Theresa. She tells her that she gave her
baby up. When she hears a baby crying, she asks to see her. The nun thinks that
will be hard on her, but Nicole says it will help. As the nun gets a bottle,
Nicole picks up the baby and starts to get an idea. Back at the mansion,
Stefano's henchman arrives and tells Stefano that he followed Nicole to a

Giant Cup of Crazy.
is furious when she catches EJ filing a complaint against Rafe at the
station. He says it's not appropriate for her to have a relationship with
her guard. She argues that he is no longer her guard and she can be as
inappropriate as she wants with him. Her yelling is interrupted by her
father, who wonders why she is there at all. She wants him to put in a good
word with Rafe's superiors. Roman gets a call and leaves. EJ tells Sami that
someone in Rafe's position shouldn't be involved with her. She accuses him
of spying on her private moments. He has a vested interest in whoever the
mother of his son is 'hooking up with'. She admits that she kissed Rafe
because she has feelings for him. They bicker and she refuses to let him
belittle Rafe. He's sure that if she pursues him, she'll get him. She claims
that she doesn't pursue men... anymore. When EJ leaves, Roman calls and
tells him that he will make some calls on Rafe's behalf to get him back to
Washington. Elvis is pleased and hopes he'll soon be gone.
they try on dresses at the wedding salon, Chloe tells Nicole that she
doesn't understand why she still feels threatened by Sami. Nicole is sure
that Sami will always try to get him back. Chloe thought EJ was smart enough
to know that Sami is a 'phony, classless loser'. Chloe tries on a dress and
says that the wedding must be perfect; she needs to convince Lucas that they
will have a wonderful life forever. To Nicole, it sounds like she is trying
too hard to convince herself. Chloe repeats that she loves Lucas. They go
over to the pub for lunch. Nicole orders light and claims she is watching
her weight. "You look like you never even had a baby," Chloe says. The topic
turns to Chloe's upcoming lunch with Kate. The bridal salon calls Chloe to
tell her that she left her credit card there. She runs off to get it and
Nicole asks the waitress to look after Sydney for a minute while she slips
out to make a call. Once she steps out, Sami comes in the back door. She
approaches and begins making googley eyes at the baby. Nicole looks in
through the window and spots her.
home, Hope and Bo discuss his visions. She tells him that his psyche must be
lying to him and suggests that he is punishing himself for feeling guilty.
Bo wonders why she is assuming that his visions are lying to him all of a
sudden. He worries that he won't be able to protect her. "You really believe
this is going to happen?" she asks, annoyed. She claims that he is just
imagining her with other men and, from now on, refuses to say that he even
has visions, 'just terrible thoughts with no base in reality'. She orders
him to stop his thoughts and vows that no one will come between them.
and Max make love in her room. He promises her that things will be different
this time. She hopes so; he was 'horrible and hateful' last time they were a
couple. He admits that he was self-absorbed but she was a 'giant cup of
crazy'. She was once obsessed with him and wonders why he picked her. Max
thinks she's beautiful, fun and challenging. He has no regrets. Noticing
what time it is, he gets up and dresses. They share some more kisses and he
runs off. As he walks down the stairs, he runs into Bo. "Max? What a
surprise," Bo says. Max is slack jawed. Chelsea runs down and hands him his
wallet before she notices her father staring at them. Before Max can
explain, Hope comes down the stairs. Bo explains that Max spent the night
there. Chelsea tries to change the subject. Bo demands to know what Max was
doing there last night. Max admits he spent the night with Chelsea. Bo kicks
him out. Chelsea gets angry and flounces upstairs. Bo tells Hope that their
home isn't a hotel. She reminds him of when they were young. She leaves to
make things right with Max while he talks to his daughter.
goes upstairs to apologize to his daughter. She reminds him that she isn't
15 years old and he has no right to stick his nose into this. He explains
that he's been overcompensating since she was absent from his life for so
long. She reminds him that he needs to let her go so she can make her own
mistakes. "I'm moving out," she says. When she leaves, he gets another flash
of his vision of Hope and wonders who she is with. Meanwhile, Hope chases
Max down to tell him how sorry his brother is. Max can't stay angry at him.
and Daniel are working out in the park. When Brady asks him about what's
going on with Kate, Daniel says that there is someone else. He seems sad so
Brady imagines it must already be over. "It will never be over," Daniel
says. He tells him that the woman he loves is marrying another man. "I know
what it's like to be in love with a woman that you can't have," Brady
commiserates. They jog around the block some more. Once Brady leaves, Hope
arrives. She asks the doctor if he's okay. He claims he is. She assumes he's
lying. She tells him that she saw the article on him in the paper claiming
he is Salem's most eligible bachelor. He tells her that he's not eligible.
She hopes he's happy and hopes she sees him again soon. Brady returns and
bumps into Chloe on the way. After she spots Daniel, she's about to run but
Brady stops her.

Just Let me Step Out And
Get a Lobotomy.
rings EJ's doorbell. He tries to blow her off but she wants the rest of her
money. He refuses to squeeze out another dime. He thinks she should have
read the contract before signing it and tells her that the project, and
their deal, is now null and void. In addition to that, she owes him the
advance she was given. "Why are you doing this to me?" she asks. He thinks
she needs to learn and grow up a little bit. When he closes the door in her
face, she flounces off.
Titan, Stephanie is called into Philip's office. He kisses her. He tells her
that they can have what they had again. "Just let me step out and get a
lobotomy," she suggests. She knows that he's handsome and then some, but
he's also her boss and she's seen the worst of him. Holding her, he asks her
to steer him in the right direction. "Philip..." she sighs. Melanie storms
in. She reminds Philip that good things don't happen to president's who hit
on interns in their offices. She announces that they can go ahead with the
project now that EJ has dropped out. He's curt and tells her he's pushing on
without her. Melanie protests but Philip threatens to have her charged for
corporate espionage and orders her to leave before she is thrown out. She
guesses that he got EJ to back out. He acknowledges this and refuses to be
blackmailed by 'Smurfette'. Melanie sarcastically congratulates Steph on
snagging 'Prince Charming' and walks out. Steph tells Philip he's
unbelievable. She doesn't like the way he does business and doesn't like to
watch him trying to be as strong as his father. He tells her they should
discuss this over dinner and hands her some work to do. When she tries to
open the file, she realizes something has gone wrong. He begins to panic.
the park, Chloe spots Daniel at a distance. Before she can run, she bumps
into Brady. He asks her what's wrong and quickly puts together what must
have happened. "Not sure if you picked the right guy?" he asks. He just
wants her to be happy. Since he's personally screwed up both of their lives
once, he can't judge her and wants to listen to her problems. She has to
decline but gives him a peck on the cheek and walks off.
goes to the Cheatin' Heart and pouts to Max. She complains about EJ and
Philip. Max reminds her that she has no money and no one will bother suing
her. He suggests that her problems are self-inflicted. She wants to be alone
for awhile and mopes toward the door. Before she leaves, she walks right
into Brady. "How you doin'?" he asks. "Why don't you ask Philip?" she says.
the pub, Nicole sees Sami holding Sydney and storms over to her. "Give me my
baby now!" she demands. Sami hands her over and claims that she would never
hurt a baby. Nicole puts the baby away. Sami tells her not to leave – they
need to have a little talk. Nicole sits down and Sami tells her that she and
EJ talked about their situation, but the people who really should be talking
are the two of them. Sami explains they are all connected and have to
respect each other's privacy. She says that EJ is already butting into her
life and she doesn't want him there anymore than Nicole does. Sami tells her
what happened with Rafe and EJ. She imagines that Elvis believes he still
owns her. Nicole guesses she must be scared of something. Sami wants her to
explain to Elvis that he has to stop obsessing over her. Although Sami wants
to be nicer, she warns Nicole that she still has power over EJ and she
should be afraid. EJ saw her kiss Rafe and went ballistic. "None of us may
want to admit it, but what EJ and I have is still there," Sami asserts. "In
your dreams, bitch!" Nicole barks. Sami wants a ceasefire but warns her
again that she is a 'formidable opponent'.
runs into Kate outside of the pub and invites her to lunch. She already has
a date. When they walk in, he asks if he can sit until her date shows up. He
spies on Nicole and Sami as they talk. She suggests that he bug the baby
carriage. He laughs. She tells him that Chloe is a 'bug that needs to be
squashed'. Stefano is impressed by her change of tune. "God had her spare my
life so I could spare my son's," she explains, announcing that Chloe will
regret what she's done. Stefano heads out and Chloe arrives. She begins
apologizing to Kate who hopes they can be honest to each other from now on.
Chloe pulls out her camera and shows her pictures of her wedding dress. Kate
thought she was going to wait a little longer to plan the wedding. Daniel
walks in and Kate calls him over to ask him his opinion on the wedding
dress. He says it looks fine and awkwardly walks away. Kate tells Chloe that
she knows what is going on... he must have hated the dress. She tells Chloe
that Daniel and her are incapable of hiding their real feelings. Kate
continues asking uncomfortable questions and warns her that she could end up
hating her soon. When Kate talks about her bedroom antics with Daniel, Chloe
starts to cough.
the mansion, Elvis and Stefano discuss the market and then turn to domestic
issues. "I just saw your fiancée having a cozy little luncheon with Samantha
Brady," Stefano says. Elvis pretends not to be interested and looks for
excuses. His father laughs when EJ suggests that the two women in his life
could actually be acting mature. The two DiMeras check their computer and
see that Melanie has done exactly what they expected. Stefano wonders if the
older and younger Kiriakis men have any idea that they are about to be blown
out of the water. "Somebody is about to have a very bad day," EJ says. After
his father walks away, Nicole walks in and accuses him of trying to run
Sami's life. She asks him why he cares about who Sami kisses. Stefano
eavesdrops and calls his henchman. He asks him to find out why Nicole was at
the convent. Meanwhile, Sami calls the convent and is outraged to learn that
a woman came by and saw her baby.
