asks Sami to lunch at the Green Mountain Lodge. He already arranged for
a babysitter. He wants to pick up where they left off and prove how
important she is to him. She tells him there can't be any more lying,

deserve each other. The detective starts to guess that EJ actually
wants the baby to be his so he can get Sami back. He sees her walk in
and plods over her to say that EJ is playing her. But this was just a
fantasy. He actually stops himself from saying anything and walks out.
the square, Jenn worries to Kayla that Daniel is angry with her. Kay
says he just has issues. Jenn explains that Nic and Daniel are more
than doctor and patient. "Ewww!" squeals Kayla. Jenn doesn't want to

that Nicole might think Jenn's after the doctor and go on the
defensive. Jenn won't let Daniel get hurt. She thinks Victor should
have a talk with him. The veins in her forehead start to throb as she
rants. Abe eventually arrives to calm things down. "I was afraid this
was going to turn into a cage match," he says. Kay tells him she's

about that. They go off together and Abe thanks her for taking the job,

bought for Lexi when she got the position.
Casa da Chad, he drops on his knee and proposes to Mel. "Where is this
coming from?" she wonders. "Whatta ya say, huh?" he prods. She guesses

understands. She thanks him for that.

they can take it slow. She jumps on him. When she reaches for his belt,
he tells her she's not ready and buttons up. He heads out. She cries.
Later, Mel arrives. Abby doesn't want to talk about her boy problems so
they talk about Mel's. Mel wants to talk to Maggie about the proposal
so she putters off. Abby paces around and calls Cam to apologize. She
wants to make it up to him tonight. When she turns around, her mom is
standing there with her eyes popping out of her head. Abby groans. Jenn
warns her to be really careful. When she brings up birth control, her
daughter tells her to back off. "I'm not an ancient country bumpkin. I
know what I'm talking about," Jenn says. Her daughter blurts out that
she's still a virgin. Jenn's lips hang open. Meanwhile, Hope brings
Nick over to the mansion and asks Maggie to let him live there for six
months. She'd take him in but Bo was the arresting office and Julie
went on a cruise. Maggie agrees to let him stay. Later, Mel drops in.

her room. He's not sure this is a good idea. "You think I'm putting on
a show for my mother?" she asks curtly. That wasn't what he was
thinking. He just doesn't think she knows what she wants. The doctor
thinks that being in a relationship probably isn't the best thing for

and runs away. Maggie cries. Nick returns and feels bad about the whole
situation. He goes down to the square and starts making calls as he
looks through the job listings. Caroline spots him and comes over. They
have an awkward conversation. She's still angry about what he did to
her. He's apologetic and says he's trying to be better. She says no one
owes him forgiveness... but she read all of the letters he sent her and
offers him a job washing dishes. It's the crummiest thing she can
offer. Back at the mansion, Daniel walks in on Brady lecturing Maggie
about letting Nick live there. The doctor doesn't know whose side she's
on anymore. Meanwhile, Chad goes back to his pad and finds Mel there.
