At the pub, Max talks up the chili fries to Morgan. You have to get them when you come there, just like you have to get a hot dog from Coney Island. She nods and smiles. Shes never had chili fries before. He tells her how good they are, so she tries them. She thinks theyre great. She thinks these alone are worth the five hundred bucks. Max looks hurt, so she adds that hes worth it too. She appreciates that he is trying something different. She describes her first date with a rich jerk that picked her up in a limo. Max says that isnt his style. What you see is what you get. Morgan likes what she sees. Stephanie spies on them from outside.
Outside Johns hospital room, Belle calls Hope and tells her what happened. She hangs up and goes back inside. Dr. Berman tells Marlena that John has been given morphine, so hell be out for a while. Belle rages. They wont try to save his life, but theyll pump him full of drugs? There has to be something they can do. Marlena tells her sometimes all they can do is say goodbye.
Near the nurses station, Sami tells EJ to smile. He is getting everything he wants. EJ is just surprised she agreed to this. She says she didnt have much choice. John is in there fighting for his life just in case she wasnt clear on the consequences. EJ swears he had nothing to do with it. She ignores him and huffs. Is he going to tell Stefano, or what? He reminds her Lucas hasnt signed the annulment papers yet. She assures EJ he will. EJ hopes John gets better. He also hopes their families can wipe the slate clean. Lucas walks in and asks what hes talking about.
Stephanie peers in the windows of the pub at Max and Morgan. She thinks shes going to be sick. Chelsea shows up. She asks why Stephanie is hanging around outside. She doesnt want to go in and have to see Max and his date. Chelsea cant believe she followed them here. Stephanie says Morgan has been acting ridiculously all night. She acted like hanging out at the track was really fun and then she ate nachos for dinner. She should have been turned off by Maxs low rent wonderland, but instead, she had fun. Chelsea rolls her eyes, and sarcastically tells Stephanie that its hard to believe Morgan might be open-minded or actually like Max. Stephanie insists Morgan is up to something. They have to find out what it is. Chelsea backs up. Stephanie is freaking her out. She sighs. She just wants to protect Max. Chelsea asks her if shes considered the fact that Max doesnt want to be saved.
Max wipes some chili off of Morgans mouth. She thinks he is a real gentleman, but sometimes a girl needs a guy that isnt one. Like right now, since Maxs friend Stephanie is spying on them, and has been all night.
Belle says John has to wake up. She has to be able to say goodbye. The doctor excuses himself. Belle asks how they can give up. Marlena chokes back a sob. Theres nothing more anyone can do for him. She knows this is hard, but Belle has to be strong. Belle refuses to say goodbye. She will not accept this. Marlena tells they have to be strong--for when John wakes up.
Lucas asks Sami what is going on. She calmly tells him she taped up the annulment and shes going through with it. Lucas jaw drops. You taped up what? Belle comes out, weeping. Lucas tells her Shawn is on his way. Is everything ok? Belle wipes her mouth with her hand. The doctors dont think he is going to make it. Sami says it cant be true. Lucas goes to wait outside. Sami comforts Belle. Marlena will make this all alright. They wont lose John. Belle sobs.
Morgan cannot believe Max hasnt noticed Stephanie. She has been tailing them all night. Didnt they date once? Max admits that they did, briefly. Morgan thinks she still has feelings for Max.
Stephanie obsesses. Did Max just see her? Chelsea isnt sure. She asks for a compact to see how she looks. Chelsea thinks her behavior is obsessive. Stephanie insists she is just looking out for him. Chelsea reminds her Max is a big boy. He can look out for himself. Stephanie wails. Morgan is just with Max for laughs. Shes going to use him, then dump him. Chelsea thinks she needs to let go. Besides, she was the one that dumped Max. Stephanie huffs. She didnt think he would rebound that quickly. Chelsea tries to soothe her. Most first dates dont lead to a second date. Stephanie isnt biting. They look like they are both having a great time in there. What if Max is falling for her?
Marlena sobs and strokes Johns hair. She cant imagine saying goodbye to him. They have always been together since they met. Even when they were apart. And they always found their way back to one another. She wont give up on them. Not after all they have been through. Johns eyes flutter. He tells her he heard every word. She asks him how he feels. John winces, Never better.
Belle just doesnt understand how this can happen again. Just last week, she was showing her dad wedding plans, and he was telling her not to play that YMCA song. Now he wont even be there. What will she tell Claire? When she grows up, John will just be some stranger in family photos. Sami says Belle wont let that happen. Belle steamrolls over her. John was supposed to take Claire to the Cubs spring training, too. Sami thinks Belle needs to focus on all the great times she and her dad shared. Shawn shows up and envelopes Belle in his arms. He apologizes for sleeping through her call. She is so glad he is there.
Lucas tells EJ he knows he did this to John to scare Sami into marriage. EJ patiently reminds Lucas he was at the pub with himself and Sami the whole time. Lucas thinks Stefano did it, or someone EJ hired. EJ says it is possible his father did it, but he had nothing to do with it. Lucas tells him to prove it.
Morgan asks for the dirt on Max and Stephanies breakup. He tells her Stephanie left him for another guy, but he isnt around anymore. Morgan is curious. Did he leave her? Max wriggles. He thinks hell let Stephanie tell Morgan the story. Morgan smiles approvingly. She appreciates that. Most guys would love to gossip about their ex. Does Max still have feelings for Stephanie? He is taken aback by the question. She sure doesnt waste any time. He sighs and says he doesnt have feelings for her anymore. He and Stephanie are yesterdays news. He just finds it odd that she would care that he was seeing someone. Not that he is, this is just for charity, but if Morgan wanted to they could, maybe. He blushes. Morgan grins. She is having a great time, and Max is worth every penny.
Chelsea thinks Stephanie needs to talk to Max if she still has a thing for him. Stephanie denies it. She just wants to make sure Morgan doesnt take advantage of Max. Chelsea laughs. Is she serious? Max can handle a girl like that with his eyes closed. Maybe that is what Stephanie is really worried about.
John wipes away Marlenas tears. Where is his doc, strong and unafraid? She says she is trying. John knows it looks bad. Marlena disagrees. She thinks he can make it. He tells her she is a terrible liar. He heard a lot of what the doctor said while he was lying there. John knows she can do this. The whole family is counting on her. She sobs. She just got him back. She cant lose him again. He tells her not to cry. He wants to take that beautiful face with him- the way it looked on their wedding day. There were tars of joy that day. And that had a good run. No regrets, right? She shakes her head. She tells him people are outside and coming by. They want to say goodbye. He knows. He just wants Marlena to lie beside him for five minutes. That wont make much of a difference, will it? She crawls onto his bed and holds him.
Lucas tells EJ that Sami needs him. So EJ just needs to stay away and let Sami mourn with her family. EJ agrees to be sensitive to her needs. Lucas glares. EJ isnt going to go anywhere near Sami. EJ tells Lucas they are about to be married. Lucas isnt so sure about that. He doesnt recall signing those annulment papers. Sami comes out to the nurses station and rages at EJ. What is he still doing here? He is supposed to go talk to Stefano. EJ leaves. Sami sobs. She needs Lucas. He holds her. He promises he isnt going anywhere.
Caroline brings apple pie out to Max and Morgan. Morgan compliments her chili fries. After she leaves, Max tells Morgan he thinks his mom likes her. He can tell. He brought home a pretty foul-mouthed girl with tattoos once, and Caroline made it pretty clear she wasnt pleased. Morgan bets Stephanie was a breath of fresh air after that one. How long did they date? He says they only dated a couple of months, but they had some weird encounters more recently. He says they revisited memory lane after they worked together all summer, but nothing came of it. What about Morgan? Does she have any exes? She says she has a few, but she is one thousand percent single now. Max was hoping she would say that.
Chelsea asks Stephanie if she thinks Max would sleep with Morgan. Stephanie doesnt think so. Max has changed. Hasnt Chelsea noticed? Chelsea sighs. She thinks Stephanie needs to talk to Max if she has feelings for him. Otherwise, shell regret it. Stephanie says she had her chance and blew it. Chelsea thinks its never too late to make things right.
Sami cries. If she had just gone with her gut and married EJ, John wouldnt lying in there dying right now. Lucas tells her she needs to be following her heart anyhow, not her gut. Sami knows this isnt fair to Lucas, but how many more people have to die before he will admit she has no other choice? She is the only one who can end this. What if something were to happen to Will? She would never forgive herself--and neither would Lucas. Lucas says they should get a bodyguard. Sami doesnt want to live like that. She will just marry EJ until Stefano dies. Besides, bodyguards havent stopped Stefano before. Lucas reminds her her dad is the deputy police commissioner. She needs to let her family handle this. Sami nukes. Look how many times her dad has been in the hospital. Clearly, her family cannot handle the DiMeras. If there was another way, she would do it, but there isnt. She really needs Lucas to stand by her on this. He is her lover and best friend. She cant do this without him. Lucas just doesnt think he can do it.
Marlena comes out and tells Belle she can go in and see John now. Belle assumes he is doing better since he is awake. Marlena shakes her head sorrowfully. He isnt. Belle doesnt know what to say. Marlena tells her to say whatever is in her heart. Belle goes inside. Shawn tells Marlena how sorry he is. He is going to call Shawn and Caroline and have them bring Claire down to see John. Can he do anything for Marlena? She tells him to take care of Belle. She is going to need all the support she can get. Of course Shawn will.
John asks Belle for a hug. She sobs. He tells her that was just what he needed. He asks about Claire. Belle tells him Caroline is bringing her by later to see him. John makes sure she is coming tonight. Tonight would be best. He sighs and tells Belle to make sure Claire turns into a Cubs fan. He wishes he could see her face when she takes in her first game at Wrigley. Belle begs him not to talk like that.
Caroline hangs up the phone and walks away from the bar. Her eyes are startled and vacant. Max asks what happened. She tells him about Johns accident. He tells her he will take Morgan home and then take her and Pop to the hospital. Morgan comes back from the bathroom and he fills her in. She is so sorry. She offers to take a cab home so he can get his parents to the hospital. He promises to make this up to her. She tells him to call her if he needs to talk. She is usually up pretty late. He beams. He thinks she is terrific.
Stephanie says there is no way she is going to crawl back to Max. She still has a little pride left. Chelsea argues with her about her motivation for being at the pub. Stephanie denies it. Chelsea asks why she called her over there if she isnt going to listen to anything she has to say. Stephanie tells Chelsea that even if she does go tell Max that she likes him, he will still be all weirded out and worried about Jeremy coming back. Max wont put himself in the position to get hurt again. Its a lose-lose situation for her. Chelsea wonders why the heck shes spying on him then. Stephanie agrees its a waste of time. Just as they turn to leave, Max and Morgan come out. Chelsea makes up some lame excuse about showing up for chili fries. Max tells them about Johns accident. He asks Stephanie if she can take Morgan back to the sorority house for him. He wants to make sure she gets home safe.
Belle tells John she has so much to say to him, but then again, she cant think of a single thing to say right now. John wants her to tell him she wont forget her daddy. She sobs. She could never do that.
Lucas wants to know what is going to happen to them. He can see the twins once in a while, and maybe they will go on a couple of dates, but she will be going home to EJ every night. Sami tells him they are in control of this, not EJ. Is she sure about that? She begs him not to let EJ come between them. Doesnt she find it strange that she just said that? Marlena interrupts. Its time. Lucas tells Sami he will be for her.
Morgan insists she can call a cab. Stephanie says it is no problem. She was heading back to the house anyway. Chelsea takes off. She has to tell Billie about John. Morgan thanks Max for the lovely evening and kisses him on the cheek. She had a great time. She hopes Max will call her. Max tells her to count on it. Morgan thanks Stephanie, too. She thinks this will be a great way for them to get to know each other. Stephanie looks thrilled.
Caroline comes into Johns room with Claire in tow. John asks about his chowder. Caroline smiles. Shes working on it. Belle sits Claire on the edge of the bed and John hugs her. He is sure going to miss the second generation, Claire Black.
Nick tells Jeremy, He always brings complaints, and complaints bring cops, and cops aren't your friends. A knock interrupts him. Jeremy shouts, Oh, damn. Someone did call the cops.
Morgan tells Stephanie, Just so you know, an Alpha Chi Theta does not take another girl's guy.
Bo asks Stefano, Who ran down John down? Stefano replies, Accidents happen. Bo snaps, It was no accident.
