never prove anything. Nicole stops him in his tracks and whips
out her recorder. He blinks, twitches and then claims he's not
surprised. She plays the tape for him. He nearly implodes and
looks utterly aghast. She plays it again and he has trouble
breathing. He tears it out of her hands and smashes it. Nicole
says she has lots of copies and they're all ready to be mailed
to the authorities. "What's your price?" he asks. "There is no
price," she says. He has nothing she wants; she only set up this
meeting to watch the blood drain from his face. She backs away
as he lurches at her like he's going to kill her. Sami suddenly
arrives and Nicole leaps away.

announces that they need to tell the truth. He says he found out

and congratulates Daniel. After he leaves, the doctor tells
Chloe that he would have done everything he could have to stop

worries that Philip is pushing Mel around. They bicker and he
asks her to put some distance between herself and Philip. He's
uncomfortable with her being around her ex. "I am jealous," he
admits. She agrees to avoid the other man and gets sarcastic. He
yells at her and she backs off, telling him he's the most
important person in the world to her. She fills him in on what
Viv admitted to her and the games she was playing. He realizes
she didn't hallucinate all the stuff about Greg and the affair
but was actually set up. "I feel as if I've betrayed you," she
adds. She tries to explain again but that doesn't go anywhere. A
minute later they're naked. They go to bed and then he goes to
the shower to sing some classics by a-ha and Winger.

everything is and orders them to talk to each other. After she
leaves, Ari asks Brady if they made a big mistake. He still
loves her and wants her and wonders what went wrong. "It was
Nicole," she says. He doubts that this was all Nicole's fault.
He claims it was really because she didn't trust him, she
trusted EJ instead. She thinks he relates to Nicole more than
her. After she gets a call, she tells him they're done and swans

her down there. "Do you want to tell her EJ, or should I?" she
asks. Sami and EJ go on the defensive and begin ranting at

'unsolved mystery' she's got the low down on. EJ watches and
look nauseous. As she begins her story, EJ asks her to wait and
announces he has a statement for the public. He grabs the
microphone and explains that he was once foolish enough to fall
in love with her. He says that she is a pathological liar and
only got her job because of him. "This report is a complete and
utter fabrication," he says. She threatens to show her proof but

wife. Hope adds that she should start thinking about what she is doing to
Bo's life. The man himself returns and suggests that they have a little
talk. He takes Hope into a room and they begin arguing. She admits that a

problems to Adrienne. She thinks something is way off. He thinks she's way
off. They argue and she flounces off. He hopes she's wrong about Hope.

and Madeline are at the beach toasting to her nomination to the appellate
court. He worries that she might have some skeletons in her closet. Kate

Kate called her. They bicker until he says he knows she was a 'whore'.

forever and they need to have a little talk. It quickly becomes apparent

has to say. Nicole pushes her way in but Sami bellows and rants. By the time
Nicole actually gets a chance to speak, EJ comes down and starts barking.

seeing him sweat and advises him to enjoy his freedom while it lasts. Once
Nicole is gone, Sami returns and says that her gut tells her that Nicole has
something on him this time. He explains that he made her mother's townhouse

about the good news. He's sure Brady's in pain and he's sorry for that.
After Victor walks off, Nicole shows up. He asks her about the scoop she has
on EJ. Brady is tired of Sami drinking his kool aid and offers to help her
take Elvis down. Slowly, she explains the Sydnapping. "He's dead!" Brady
shouts. But that was just in her imagination. She snaps out of it for a few
seconds and then has another fantasy where Brady doesn't believe her and the
whole thing blows up in her face. Snapping out of that, she decides not to
tell him anything. Meanwhile, Justin wanders into the pub and joins Victor
for a martini. Victor repeats that he wants him to stay away from Hope.

romance and she says that turning him down was the biggest regret of her
life. She claims that she is responsible for his breakup with Ari. He

awkward moment and he wishes her good luck with the trial. Meanwhile, Marco
brings Nicole to Casa DiMera. She and EJ begin their instomatic verbal
sparring. He guesses she hasn't told Brady anything because it would expose
what she did to Ari. Nicole doesn't care because she's already found another
way to make Elvis pay. She wants to punish Sami as well since she's been a
jerk. "I want you two to burn in Hell together," she says, explaining that
she won't reveal his secret. Her silence won't come free, but he'll have to
wait to find out what she wants.

family. He accuses her of being a hypocrite. When he threatens to go and
talk to his dad about this, she forbids it and offers to tell him
everything. Madeline admits that what Will heard was true. She tries
explaining herself and how she didn't feel she had any choice. After she
begs him never to tell Charles about this, she slips and says that there are
many secrets. "What else are you hiding from me?" he demands. They argue and

get it either and tells her about what Adrienne said. They go over
