Days of Our Lives Update Wednesday 7/18/01
PHILIP GOES TO VISIT HIS MOM at the Hudson Street Diner. Philip tells her
about his problems
Also in the diner are Salem’s finest (Roman and Abe that is) dining on the
blue plate special (chicken fried steak….mmm mmm mmm!!). Roman gets a page and
realizes he left his phone in the car excuses himself from the table. Fay gets a
moment alone with Abe at the diner and asks him what's wrong. He tells her about
his problems with Lexie. Abe asks Fay why she never left her husband for him?
She tells him it was the biggest mistake of her life and she wishes she had.
Meanwhile, Paul is released on parole with a vengeful look in his eyes. Paul
goes into the diner and sees Abe and Fay, making Fay run out.
AT THE BLUE NOTE, Brandon and Lexie are still having a conversation over
coffee and dancing. Lexie and Brandon discuss Lexie's marriage and how she can't
confide in Abe. Brandon is trying to get Lexie to think that she can't trust Abe
with her secrets. She goes on about how much she loves Abe and what a good,
decent man he is. Brandon bites his tongue about that. Lexie reminds him that
when Brandon was young, Abe wasn’t married and his mother was lonely with his
father in prison. He asks how she knew his father was in prison. We come back to
her having checked on Isaac as they continue their conversation. She tries to
convince him that it was understandable that his mom might have leaned on Abe,
but he insinuates that Abe took advantage of his mom and left her. She defends
Abe, but states it is ancient history. Brandon tells Lexie that his father knew
that his mother was seeing Abe and beat up on his mother and him. He didn’t beat
up on Nicole, but made her do things. Lexie asks what things, but Brandon
doesn’t say. She said friends tell other friends everything. He asks if she’s
really his friend being he knows about Hope’s baby and then warns her that Abe
is not the person he pretends to be.
MEANWHILE IN CHICAGO, Barb questions Glen about Marlo and how “it” was with
her. He tells her it was wild but the booze and drugs took over. She asks if he
did really have a baby with Marlo, would it be that important to raise that kid.
Glen says yes, but why is she asking that now? She shuns it off and heads out to
get her leopard nightie he likes so much out of the dryer and suggests he put on
that cologne she loves. Barb has the proof that the DNA results match. Hoping
that she is pregnant with her own child, Barb decides not to tell Glen and
throws the results back in the trash.
THE SMOKIN’ CAN gushes blue smoke as Shawn watches it. When it's finished, he
looks at it carefully and finds another can inside that reads, "Did I make you
dizzy, Desi?" Shawn is confident that he is meant to solve this mystery.
Meanwhile, Belle presses Chloe to forgive Philip, but Chloe counters that he
really doesn't know her. Shawn interrupts and shows them the mysterious can.
Later, assistant DA Larson arrives to talk to Chloe. Larson tells Chloe that
there is a strong possibility that Jan and Mimi will go to prison. Larson
privately tells Chloe of another way of punishment, which Chloe agrees to be
acceptable. Belle is beside herself and asks Chloe how Mimi and Jan will be
