Mimi asks Rex if he meant that he has to be a barrel of laughs for her to want to be with him. Rex asks if he is ever a barrel of laughs. Mimi says no, if she said he cracked her up like no one she knows, than that would be a lie. Mimi says since she cant have Conan OBrien who cracks her up because he is in New York and married, so shell just have to settle for the guy she likes being with even if the laughs are few and far between and that just happens to be Rex. Rex says he doesnt understand. Mimi gives him the condensed version, Rex is the only guy Mimi is interested in. Mimi says she shouldnt say that because it usually is the way to play hard to get because people are always more attracted to people who arent attracted to them. Mimi tells Rex that she thinks he is really great and smart. Rex adds but not funny. Mimi says Rex is funny enough for her; hes everything enough for her. Mimi says she would like to ask Rex a question. Rex asks what it is and Mimi tells him that it is hard for him to ask so be gentle with his answer. Rex says he will try.

Lucas says he likes the part where Brandon wrote that shell be getting the annulment papers as soon as they are drawn up. Lucas says it is a shame that they didnt have time to legally consummate their marriage. Sami says Lucas is disgusting. Lucas tells Sami that he sees that look in her eyes and not to even think about it. Sami asks what he means and Lucas tells her to stop thinking about getting herself pregnant and telling Brandon the little brat is his because thats what they have DNA testing for not that someone would be stupid enough and desperate enough to sleep with Sami. Will comes in and interrupts them. Sami tells Will that Brandon has decided to go away. Will says whatever and Sami asks what he means by that. Will says he never really liked him anyway and goes to get his stuff for school. Sami asks Lucas what he said to Will. Lucas says Will told him that he only pretended to like Brandon because Sami wanted him to so much. Sami says Will loves Brandon. Lucas says Will told him that Brandon talked down to Will, treated him like a kid. Sami says Will is a kid and Brandon is the kind of man who should be in her sons life not a loser like Lucas. Sami says she will never forgive Lucas for ruining her chance with Brandon. Lucas says he cant take credit for that, Sami is the one who switched the files and Lexie is the one who set him up. Sami says that Lexie is not that smart or that devious, that someone else put her up to it and she is going to find out whom and leaves the apartment.

Rex tells Mimi to wait and Mimi tells Rex to leave her alone while she still has some pride left. Rex says he isnt checking out on her. Mimi asks why Rex said he doesnt think they have a chance. Rex says he said it because he doesnt know why Mimi would want to be with him with all this crap going on in his life right now, hes a one man freak show. Mimi tells him not to say that, she understands what he is going through. Rex asks if she has had her life turned upside down three times, have you known what it is like to have no mother or father only to find your parents to find out that they arent your parents after all, have you experienced all that. Mimi says that no matter what Rex is going through, he has someone who cares about him that isnt going anywhere and she just doesnt want Rex to shut her out as she is on the verge of tears.

Abe tells Sami that she really thinks hes going to support her after all shes done is lie and manipulate. Sami asks what about Lexie for shes the one who planted the fake paternity test results. Abe says this is the sickest thing hes ever heard of, Sami blaming the person who set the trap because she was stupid enough to walk into it. Sami asks Lexie if someone else had to suggest this. Lexie says yes, it was someone who is tuned into how Samis mind works and brilliantly anticipated Samis level of panic and desperation. Sami realizes Lexie meant Tony. Lexie explains that when she told Tony she was pregnant, he suggested she get the CVS paternity test done at an independent lab which proved that Abe is the father. Lexie says that given Abe and Lexies trouble getting pregnant, that Brandon was bound to wonder if he was the father and so would paranoid little Sami. Lexie explains that Tony suggested they play with Samis head and Sami did exactly what Tony predicted in switching the records. Lexie says it was only a matter of time before Sami self-destructed and in the meantime they had the joy of watching her scramble around for months trying to cover herself. Sami says that Tony betrayed her. Lexie says he did her a favor because she is his sister, hed do anything for her. Sami says they will not get away with his. Abe says it is over and anything Sami does now will only make it worse. Sami tells Abe that it is not over, not by a long shot and leaves the room.

Lucas asks Tony if he helped Lexie set Sami up. Lucas tells Tony that was brilliant. Tony says he heard it went very well. Lucas says Tony should have been there to see the look on Samis face. Lucas asks Tony if he knew what Lucas was going to find when he was sent after Sami. Tony says it was also a test for Lucas and he passed with flying colors.

They clink glasses as Lucas says to Samis downfall. They both take a drink as Lucas warns Tony that when Sami is at her most dangerous when shes angry. Tony says he can handle Sami Brady.
Chloe asks Philip if he told Brady to go on tour with her. Philip says he was just pointing out the obvious. Philip goes on to say that if Brady wasnt willing to turn his life upside down for Chloe, then he wasnt in love with her but he was and he is. Chloe says so it was Philips idea. Philip tells Chloe that its not like Brady wouldnt have figured it out for himself. Chloe says it doesnt matter now anyway. Philip asks if Brady has changed his mind.

Brady asks Cecilia how she can accuse him of trying to ruin Chloes life; hes willing to give up everything for her. Cecilia says it is the worst possible thing he can do for Chloes future. Brady asks what she is talking about, he loves Chloe and Chloe loves him. Cecilia asks if it is love when youre completely dependent on someone, Chloe cant even sing unless hes there to encourage and support her. Brady says he knows and Chloe will get over it. Cecilia says she wont if Brady is constantly by her side. Cecilia tells Brady to succeed in professional opera; a singer needs more than just talent, a passion to sing, limitless ambition, nerves of steel, and self-reliant. Cecilia says she has to finish packing and that if Chloe goes on this tour, she goes alone and she doesnt think Chloe is strong enough to make this journey and she hates to see such talent go to waste as she says goodbye to Brady and sees him out. Brady stops outside Cecilias room to think.
Marlena knocks on Lexies door. Abe and Lexie hug Marlena. Marlena says to tell her everything, how long is he, what does he weigh, what is his name. Lexie says that the baby is 7 lbs. 8 oz, 21 inches, and named Theodore Carver. Marlena asks if he is beautiful. Lexie says yes hes beautiful and that he is in the nursery if Marlena wants to see him. Abe tells her to go see him, just look for the handsomest boy there. Marlena teases Abe and asks how they both are. Abe says they are fine but as his voice trails off. Marlena asks what is wrong and Abe says there is something she needs to know about Sami.
Sami bursts into the DiMera mansion. Sami calls Tony a rotten bastard and he is exactly like his father, even worse. Sami adds that the only thing that turns him in on is screwing with other peoples lives. Tony and Lucas start to laugh. Sami looks back and forth between the two of them looking confused.
Mimi apologizes to Rex. Rex says he is sorry he got angry. Mimi says that Tony has to be Rexs father because Cassie and Tony share the rare blood marker. Rex says DNA is irrefutable, he is not related to Marlena, Tony, or Belle. Mimi says not being a DiMera isnt not necessarily a bad thing; shed be kind of relieved if it was her. Rex says Mimi cant tell anyone. Mimi promises and says that maybe Tony doesnt have to know because Rex would probably never find out who his real parents are. Rex says he went back over the results and found he is related to someone else at the table. Mimi says she knows who it is, John.
Lexie tells Marlena that it puts her in an awkward position. Marlena thanks them for understanding that. Lexie says that Sami is Marlenas daughter and she loves her. Marlena says she does love her but she cant condone her behavior. Marlena adds that she is sorry for all the pain Sami has caused and it seems she is always apologizing for Sami. Abe says it is time Sami took responsibility for her own actions. Marlena says Abe is right and is going to go find Sami.
Marlena leaves the hospital room and runs into Brady. Brady says her secretary told her where she was and he needs to talk to her. Marlena asks what is wrong and asks if it is Chloe. Brady says Chloe is fine health wise and says this may be a lame question. Marlena says that there are no lame questions, just lame answers and shell try not to give him one. They laugh as Brady asks if she thinks it is possible to love someone too much.
Tony and Lucas continue to laugh. Sami tells them to stop laughing at someone elses pain. Sami starts hyperventilating. Tony asks Sami if she is alright. Sami says she isnt, she is dying. Tony tells Sami before she does die, to have Lucas get her some water. Tony tells Sami to get a hold of herself and Sami says to let her go. Lucas tells Sami to take the water. Sami knocks the glass of water out of Lucas hand and tells him she doesnt want anything from him, for all she knows the water is poison but maybe that would be better. Sami crumples to the floor clutching the leg of a chair crying hysterically.
Brady asks Marlena if Cecilia Marin is right, if Chloe is too dependent on him. Marlena asks why Cecilia could be an expert on Brady and Chloe that she barely knows them and is very presumptuous to analyze their relationship and presume to tell him what they need. Brady asks if Marlena is offended by this. Marlena says she is very offended by this, especially by the kind of information she is giving them. Brady asks if he cant tell her this. Marlena says no, because Cecilia is very important and powerful in the opera world so you dont want to alienate her there and she may be right. Marlena says she said she was presumptuous but that doesnt mean you cant dismiss what she said. Marlena offers counseling to Chloe. Brady says that Chloe wont want that because she doesnt think she has a problem and counseling takes time which is something they dont have and if Chloe was going on this tour, this is something that needs to be fixed, today. Marlena says then it cant be done, there are no quick fixes.
Chloe says she is not making a mistake; she wont give up Brady for her career. Philip tells Chloe she also loves singing and shes dreamt about this all her life. Chloe says she doesnt want it if it means she has to give up Brady. Philip says years from now she is going to resent this choice and if something should go wrong between her and Brady, she is going to resent him too. Chloe says Philip is wrong, theres nothing more important than loving Brady and being with him. Philip says thats what he thought about him and Chloe once upon a time and he was wrong. Philip tells Chloe that she cant live her life for one person, it doesnt work. Chloe tells him that he is bitter and angry about what happened between them, he just doesnt want her to be happy.
Rex tells Mimi that it isnt John, if it were John hed still be genetically linked to Belle. Mimi asks why that would be such a problem, then suggests that he doesnt want to be genetically linked because he wants to be linked linked. Rex says he doesnt want to be linked linked with Belle. Mimi asks then who is Rex related to. Rex says he is related to Belles sister Sami.
Tony helps Sami up from the floor. Sami tells him to get off of her because she doesnt need their fake sympathy because the only person that ever loved her was Brandon and now he hates her too. Sami says she was so close to finally getting what she wanted and now she is going to be lonely and alone for the rest of her life. Tony and Lucas just watch Sami.
Chloe asks why she even came to see Philip. Philip says it is because she knew he would have her best interests at heart, she just doesnt like what he had to say. Philip tells Chloe that when they were together, she was his whole life and when it was over, he felt like nothing mattered anymore. He says he couldnt go on like this and forced himself to go out into the world alone and he finally grew up. Chloe says that isnt a good analogy because she and Brady arent over. Philip says if Chloe makes all her decisions based on what is best for Brady, she is going to start to hate him. Chloe asks why he is doing this to her. Philip says he doesnt want to see her make the same mistakes he did, that he held on to tight and he lost her when they were together. Chloe says she will never lose Brady.
Brady tells Marlena that he just has to figure out a way to make Chloe see she is okay on her own. Marlena says that Chloe may be holding on to her dependence on Brady because she is afraid of failing on her own. Brady says she has to force her to sing on her own. Marlena asks if Brady has any idea how to do that. Brady says he does.
Mimi says she may have barely made it out of freshmen biology but Rex cant be related to Sami if hes not related to Marlena because you have to share a parent. Rex looks at Mimi waiting for her to figure it out. Mimi gets it and Rex says that yes Roman Brady is his father.
Abe asks Lexie if she thinks Marlena is going to be able to help Sami. Lexie says Sami is one sick puppy but Marlena is the best bet to convince Sami to get some kind of psychiatric help before she ruins someone elses life or her own.
Sami is in hysterics still. Sami says all she wanted was to make a good life for herself with the man that she loves and now she is all alone and it is all because of Tony. Sami lunges at Tony and Tony tries to calm her down. Sami tells Tony that he betrayed her and he is a bastard. Tony calls Sami a spoiled little brat who finally got what she deserves. Sami tells Tony that he is evil and dangerous just like her family said he is a monster. Tony tells Sami not to make her angry. Sami tells Tony to let her go and Tony says hell let her go; she can go to hell as he throws her off of him and through the glass door. Sami is laying on the ground unconscious, her face covered in blood. Tony and Lucas look on.
