Days of Our Lives
January 14th, 2004 Episode Of The O.C.
The show opens with Oliver showing up at Marissas place. He asks if he can come in? She says of course and lets him in. Marissa explains that the place she is living is just temporary. She tries to explain, but he says he doesnt judge. He says he does need to apologize for the other night. He says he hit rock bottom, but it was an eye opener. He says he talked to his parents, hes going back to meetings, and he and Natalie are getting back together. Oliver says none of this would have happened if Ryan hadnt come to his rescue. He says he wants to say thanks to Ryan, and he offers to take her and Ryan to Palm Springs for the weekend. Oliver says they can bring all their friends too, and they can meet his folks and Natalie. Marissa really wants to meet Natalie, but she says she should call Ryan and ask him first. She leaves to call Ryan, and Oliver looks at the photos on her mantle. He sees one of her and Ryan together, and he hides it behind another photo!
The kids arrive at Olivers place in Palm Springs. Oliver helps Luke put his beer in the fridge, and Ryan asks Marissa how Oliver is doing. Marissa says he is fragile, but she thinks getting out of town will help him. Oliver returns, and soon Seth, Anna and Summer arrive. They are arguing because Summer had them listening to the audio version of The Davinci Code all the way down. Summer says she was just trying to give Cohen a little bit of culture. Seth gets a call from his dad, and he comments that this is the sixth call from him in two hours. Seth says they are still fine, and hell call him from every place they go if it will make him happy. Ryan asks where Olivers folks are? He says their plane from Zurich has been delayed, and they probably wont make it. Oliver says they should get golfing, and he says he has set up some time on the Links for them. Oliver shows them all to their rooms, and he gives Marissa and Ryan a room with two twin beds. He apologizes and says they could push them together or switch rooms, but Marissa says it will be fine. Marissa excuses herself to change, and Ryan and Oliver push the beds together. Oliver also thanks Ryan for being so cool about them being friends. Oliver knows what happened with Luke recently, and he says it must be hard for Ryan to trust another guy with Marissa when he thought she was getting back with Luke for awhile. He also knows about Ryans background, thanks to Marissa. Oliver says Marissa thinks hes very healthy and well adjusted, considering . . . . .Ryan says Considering?
Sandy heads to work on Saturday, and he meets up with Tom Wellington. He talks to Tom about getting Jimmy a job working in the records department. Tom says no way, it will give them bad publicity. Sandy says there is no such thing as bad publicity. He says Jimmy was the best there was and everyone loved him. Tom says that was before he ripped everyone off. Sandy asks if he doesnt deserve a second chance? Tom says not at their firm he doesnt. He tells Sandy that the best thing he can do for Jimmy is to leave him alone and stay far away from him so that Jimmy's stench doesn't rub off on him. Sandy says he is a good guy. Tom tells Sandy to go into business with him then.
Meanwhile, Kirsten and Julie spy on Caleb and Haley. Kirsten says Haley looks so much like their mom, and that is why Caleb cant say no to her. She says Haley is probably telling him about her plan to help the oppressed indigenes of some country right now, but all she really wants is an all expense trip to Amsterdam. Kirsten says every time she vanishes the trips get wilder, she stays away longer, and one of these days she probably wont come back. Julia tells Kirsten that Caleb listens to her, so she can stop Caleb from letting her go.
Back in Palm Springs, the kids hit the golf course, and Ryan gets annoyed when Oliver gets close to Marissa to give her some golfing tips. Ryan smacks the ball into oblivion, and Oliver comments that he must have been visualizing his face on that ball. Later, Olivers wise cracks annoy both Ryan and Luke, and Luke offers to hurt Oliver for Ryan! Ryan says no thanks, he can hurt him. Eventually, Oliver suggests they head back to the house. Oliver and Marissa take one cart, and Ryan and Luke race them in the other cart. Oliver ends up getting way to nuts, and begins to play chicken with Ryan! Ryan veers off, and ends up crashing his cart. Ryan is furious with Oliver. Oliver says he thought they were just joking around, but Ryan doesnt think it is funny. Marissa says Oliver was just playing, and she runs after Oliver. Luke says that guy was NOT playing!
Elsewhere, Seth is carrying both his and Summers bag, because Summer says her back hurts. Anna seems annoyed by Summer constantly hanging around with them. Summer hits her ball into the bushes, and she asks Seth to help her look for it. When Seth goes to help her, Anna says it looks like Summer isnt the only one who lost her balls!
Sandy arrives home and talks with Kirsten in the kitchen. Sandy doesnt think Kirsten looks like someone who is ready to have dinner with her dad, as she is not dressed. Kristen says shes letting her dad and Haley have some one on one time. Sandy talks to Kirsten about coming up empty trying to get Jimmy a job, and he says Jimmy is right to be looking elsewhere for jobs because nobody here will give him a chance. Sandy decides to go to dinner with Jimmy anyways. Sandy says they will have a nice meal and some drinks, and then theyll talk about what his next move should be. Caleb shows up, and he asks Kirsten why she is not ready? Kirsten says she is not going because they both know why Haley is here. Caleb says she wants to catch up with her family, and he asks Kirsten not to be jealous of her sister. He says he loves both of his daughters equally. Kirsten says he doesnt, but that is okay. Kirsten says what isnt okay is that she takes advantage of his love for her. Caleb asks if Kirsten wants him to cut Haley off? Kirsten thinks that is what Caleb wants to do.
Back at Olivers place, Seth tinkers with a humidifier that he brought before hoping into bed with Anna. Seth and Anna are just about to make out when Summer shows up and says she wants to know if she can watch TV with them because Luke is hogging the remote. Anna says arent watching TV, and Seth says they were going to go to bed. Summer says it is only eight o clock, are they seventy or something? Seth says yes, on the inside. Summer thought they were supposed to hang out as friends, but then says obviously they are only allowed to be friends at certain hours. Seth and Anna say that is not the case, so Summer yells great and jumps into bed with them and turns on the TV. She sits right in between Anna and Seth to watch TV.
Ryan is in the kitchen cleaning up when Oliver comes in and tells him he doesnt have to. Ryan says he doesnt mind. Oliver says he can at least help him out. Oliver asks where Marissa is? Ryan says Marissa is getting ready to get in the hot tub. Oliver asks Ryan if they can start over and be friends. Oliver asks what he can do? Ryan tells him that the next time he wants to be alone with his girlfriend to let him know so that he can stay home. Oliver smashes the plate he is holding, and then says this always happens. He says first it was Natalie, then his friends at Pacific, and now him. Oliver begins beating himself on the head and calls himself stupid! Oliver says everyone who knows him for more than five minutes ends up hating his guts. Ryan says nobody hates him. Marissa comes in and asks what is going on here? Ryan says they were just talking. Marissa asks Oliver if he is okay. Oliver says yeah and hes going to get some fresh air. Oliver leaves, and Marissa yells at Ryan for driving Oliver out of his own house. Ryan says Oliver just went off on him, and he says he doesn't trust Oliver. Marissa tells Ryan that Oliver has a lot of problems, and he (Ryan) is the one sounding paranoid here. She asks what his problem is? Ryan says maybe the fact that they spent the entire car ride talking about him? Marissa says she was talking about her life, and he is part of her life. Marissa says she doesnt understand what is going on with him.
At The Lighthouse, Sandy breaks the news to Jimmy that nobody in town is willing to give him a chance. Jimmy tells Sandy that he's going to just have to start his life over again. Sandy asks what he wants to do? Jimmy says he used to want to be a pilot. Sandy says he always wanted to be left fielder for the New York Yankees. Jimmy says the most enjoyable job he had was working here. He says he managed The Lighthouse the summer he married Julie. They talk about all the famous people who used to come here to dine, and how much this place is worth historically and financially. They begin brainstorming about how fun it would be to run this place, and Sandy gets an idea. He asks the waitress to keep the drinks coming.
Back in Palm Springs, Summer is annoyed when Seth and Anna begin to discuss everything they are seeing on TV. They discuss why McDonalds cant serve Egg McMuffins after 10am, where cabbage patch kids really come from, and how tall the Smurfs were. Summer ends up telling them how cute they sound, almost like brother and sister. Summer says shes going to bed, walks out of the room, and has successfully spoiled the mood for Seth and Anna.
Ryan attempts to talk to Marissa, who is waiting up for Oliver. She is worried about him. Ryan asks what is wrong with him? Marissa says he is battling depression and has substance abuse problems. Oliver finally calls Marissa. Oliver is somewhere, and he says something bad happened. He tells her that hes back in New Port now, and he just took a whole bunch of pills. Marissa tells him to call an ambulance, but he says no. Oliver says he is so scared, and maybe he can throw them up. Oliver asks her if she could come back? Marissa says they are leaving now. Ryan and Marissa get in the car and head back to New Port.
Back at the hotel, Ryan is looking around the floor for pills. Marissa asks what he is looking for? He says nothing. He then puts the empty pill bottle next to the clock Oliver dumped the pills into. Marissa says she is staying here with Oliver in case he tries again. Ryan has his doubts that Oliver ever really tried at all. Marissa and Ryan end up arguing, and she tells Ryan maybe he should just go home. She says shell see him in the morning. Oliver walks out and once again thanks Ryan for everything and hes sorry for ruining his weekend Marissa says shell call Ryan tomorrow. The show ends with Ryan walking out of the hotel room.
