Stephanie comes into the pub and greets Caroline behind the bar. She asks how the internship is going and Stephanie says she spilled coffee on her shirt and walked into the mens restroom. Caroline chuckles. Stephanie asks about Max just as he comes from the kitchen to bus dishes. He tells Stephanie that hes swamped. Another waitress called in sick. Is she mad that they cant hang out? Stephanie says that she isnt and Max heads off to take someones order. Stephanie sighs.
Paul walks into the pub and confronts John. John says the place looks like a dive, but the chili will bring tears to your eyes. Paul rages. Hes going to bring tears to Johns eyes if he doesnt get him out of this legal mess! Marlena watches outside and makes a call.
At Chez Rouge, Nicole asks EJ if she is still legally married to Victor. He was declared dead, but hes alive.
Nearby, Maggie tells Phillip that Nicole has managed to insult a busboy and a waiter in the ten minutes that shes been here. Phillip sighs. Maggie should try living with her. Shes claiming that she and Victor were never divorced. Maggie clucks. Shell want half of everything. Victor had better cover his assets. Phillip takes a call from Chloe, who is freaking out over the two men from the Austrian Consulate. Theyre demanding she come with them. Phillip tells her to stay put and call the lawyer, Greer, at his office. Phillip will try his cell on the way back to the mansion. He hangs up and throws a wad of cash on the table. He tells Maggie he has to go and to tell Nicole the same, then leaves.
Sami tells Nicole that she and EJ are trying to have dinner. Nicole interrupts her. She was asking EJ, not Sami. EJ says she wont get very far with him treating his wife like that. Nicole huffs. Is she still married or what? EJ says that it possible. She snorts. Where did he get his degree, online? EJ smirks. It was from Cambridge, actually. Nicole softens. Thats a classy school. She asks EJ to start representing her. If he gets her the settlement she wants, shell share a nice percentage with him. Sami tells her that theres no way EJ would represent a gold-digging witch like her.
Caroline brings Stephanie a piece of apple pie and Stephanie asks if they can have a bit of girl talk. Caroline asks how things are going with Max and Stephanie tells her that they barely hang out anymore. He works all the time, and she misses him. He just hasnt been the same since Grandpa Shawn died. Caroline thinks that throwing himself into his work is how Max copes with the loss of his father. Stephanie wishes he would let her help him get through this. Caroline agrees that Max has spent too much time working at the pub. She wants to give him some time off. He deserves it. Stephanie thanks her.
Paul reminds John that he promised him this wouldnt happen. The front page of the paper makes him sound like he was already arrested and convicted. John tells him to trust him. Paul grumps. Why should he? John has to do something fast--some kind of damage control, or hell be toast by next week. John tells him to relax. Paul has no other option but to trust him. As long as he keeps names out of this, nothing will happen to him. Marlena comes in and tells John that she didnt expect to see him here.
Nicole is surprised that Sami couldnt do better than that insult. Sami yells that she should go back to her own table and choke on a piece of bread. EJ asks them both to quiet down before theyre asked to leave. Nicole takes some wine and makes a face. EJ tells her its a good brand, but she disagrees. It tastes like motor oil. If he takes her as a client, hell never have to by this cheap stuff again. Mickey interrupts and tells EJ its best that he not do that. He pulls EJ away for a chat. Sami toasts Nicole, To cheap women, and everything that comes along with them. Nicole toasts and drinks. She thought Sami would be glad that shes trying to earn her husband some money. She could use it to buy a new wardrobe. Sami says Nicole wouldnt know fashion if it hit her in the face. Nicole smiles smugly. This dress is couture. Sami says she recognizes the porn star collection. They start shouting. Maggie comes over and warns them to keep it down. Theyre both wearing out their welcome.
Mickey tells EJ that Nicole is a tyrant, but EJ thinks she seems harmless. Mickey is serious. She tried to murder her husband, and that isnt the half of it. You could fill a book with the stunts she has pulled. EJ thinks he can handle her. Mickey just asks him to talk to Sami first. Maybe she can knock some sense into him. EJ thinks that Nicole will be a good client to cut his teeth on. Mickey sighs. Hes not going to tell EJ he cant represent her, but he knows that Nicole will come after someone after shes done with Victor. He just doesnt want EJ to say he didnt warn him.
Sami talks to Alice about the twins as Nicole tries to flag down a waiter for another martini. After she hangs up, Nicole asks to see pictures of the babies. Sami refuses. Nicole smirks. So they really have two different fathers? Sami must have really been slutting it up, huh? Sami rages. EJ comes over to calm her as other patrons look on with shock. Nicole crosses her knife and fork to make a crude crucifix, as if warding Sami off. Sami tells EJ that Nicole was saying horrible things about his son. EJ takes Nicole aside and tells her to quit with the snarky comments. If she wants him to consider taking her case, she must stop insulting his wife. Nicole beams. So hes considering her offer? EJ says yes.
John asks Marlena to have a seat and tells Paul that eh will be in touch. Paul leaves. John sighs and waits for the lecture, but Marlena says that she wont pry into his business affairs. John doesnt buy it, but she means it. He is who he is. John smiles. He didnt expect her to give up so easily She says that she is just being practical. He puts his hand over hers. Is she saying she feels nothing for him? He feels something. Marlena says she cant do this. John thinks they can start over. He introduces himself to her and smiles. Marlena says she doesnt want to start over. She wants her husband back. She wants the man she fell in love with.
Max comes behind the bar and tells Caroline that theres something wrong with the soda machine. Two customers have complained about flat drinks. Caroline says she will call a repairman in the morning, but Max says he can do it himself. Caroline says that they need to talk. She asks Max how many hours he put in last week. When he tells her it was about sixty hours, she says its too much. How many hours did he spend wit his friends? Max spies Stephanie eating pie nearby and tells Caroline he knows who put her up to this. Caroline says she knows he is trying to fill his fathers shows, but hes doing too much for a part-time job. She wants him to take some time off. Shell be fine. Max needs to focus on his friends, especially that one over there. Stephanie smiles and innocently eats her pie.
John tells Marlena to lighten up and calls her doc. She asks him not to do that anymore. He isnt the same man, so it doesnt mean anything. John has had enough of this new John/old John stuff. He thinks if she gives him half a chance, she might find something she likes. She smiles. What is there to like?
The men from the Consulate tell Chloe that its time to go. She leaves Greer a frantic message and tells them she isnt going anywhere without her lawyer. The men tell her that they can do this the easy way or the hard way. Chloe huffs. They cant arrest her. The men agree. But they can contact the police and ask that she be extradited back to Austria. Chloe sweats.
EJ reminds Nicole that he hasnt yet accepted her offer. She laughs. She forgets he doesnt know how it works around here. Whatever Nicole wants, Nicole gets. And he doesnt want to say no to her. EJ asks what would happen. Would she have him eliminated? Nicole sees Mickey has been filling his head with lies. She couldnt hurt any living creature. She wants to have a meeting with EJ right away, but they cant meet at the mansion, due to Victors presence. Sami, Maggie and Mickey glare at her. Nicole tells EJ that she thinks Sami is jealous. She wonders how he ended up with her. Did he lose a bet or something? Sami wonders aloud how long it takes to say no. EJ is saying no, right? Mickey pats her arm and apologizes. He did everything he could. Nicole thinks there are some things that EJ needs to know about Sami. Like how she drove Lucas to drinking by lying about him hitting Will. Sami walks up as Nicole wonders what else she can tell EJ. Sami smiles. How about the time she threw a drink in Nicoles face? She does so promptly. Nicole wipes the wine out of her eyes. Sami is so dead. Sami says shes lucky it wasnt red wine as Nicole shrieks for a napkin. She huffs off to the bathroom as EJ tells Sami that what she did was inappropriate. Sami has been waiting to do it all night. Shes just glad EJ turned down the offer. EJ says he hasnt yet. Sami explains that Nicole doesnt have a moral bone in her body. EJ heard the lecture from Mickey. Why does Sami even care? Sami gives him a background of Nicoles relationships with Eric and Lucas. EJ sympathizes, but he has made his decision. Nicole walks over as EJ tells Sami that he plans to accept her offer. Nicole grins. Its about damn time.
John wonders whats not to like. He has rugged good looks and charm. Marlena rolls her eyes and gets up to leave. John begs her for five more minutes. She sits back down and he wonders what would happen if she took him on as a project. She doesnt understand. He says that they have been trying to jump start his memories, but maybe they should take a different approach. He wants Marlena to try to mold him into the man she wants him to be. Marlena raises her eyebrows. John tells her to ponder it for a moment.
Max apologizes to Stephanie for working so much. She tells him that it doesnt have to be this way. Max explains that this is just how hes dealing with what happened. Stephanie thinks that he needs to spend time with people that love and care about him. Shes not trying to tell him how to grieve, but she thinks he needs a break to clear his head. Grandpa Shawn would have wanted him to spend more time with family and friends. Max sighs. She sounds like his mom. Stephanie urges him to do this for himself. Max says that he has to go do something. Marlena comes over and Stephanie tells her that she wanted so say hello, but she and John looked intense. Marlena says they have been trying to sort some things out. Stephanie knows exactly what shes talking about. Max tells Caroline that he is going to take some time off, starting tonight. Caroline hugs him and urges him to give Stephanie the good news.
The men tell Chloe that its time to go. She begs for one more call as Phillip rushes in. He tells the men to wait for the lawyer, but they refuse. The lawyer can meet them at the Consulate. They leave with Chloe in tow. Phillip tells her not to say anything. Hes going to fix this.
Nicole wants to celebrate and calls for Maggie and a bottle of the finest champagne. Sami says that she is disappointed and he pulls her aside. He reminds her that Nicole is his only client. She isnt pulling in any income and they have the children to think of. Sami nukes. This isnt about Allie or Johnny. Its about Nicole. EJ tries another tactic. He and Sami have done some pretty despicable things, and have both been given second chances. Maybe Nicole deserves one, too. Sami thinks she has only changed for the worse. EJ makes her a deal. If Nicole becomes a problem, hell find her another attorney. Sami glances at Nicole, who waves at her sweetly. Sami says theres no deal. Its either her--or Nicole.
Stephanie tells Marlena that Max needs to take some time off right now. Marlena thinks they will work it out. Stephanie isnt so sure. Max comes over and Marlena excuses herself. Max tells Stephanie that he decided to take some time off. She hugs him. She thinks its great news. Max hopes she wont get sick of him and she swears she wont. She wonders what made him change his mind. He says that she did. Caroline looks at them and smiles.
Marlena tells Caroline that she did a good job as John comes back. He asks her if shes willing to make him her science project. He knows she is interested. She wonders why he wants this. Didnt Stefano do the same thing to him? John smiles. He didnt look half as good in a dress, though. Marlena chuckles.
Nicole comes over to Sami and EJ and tells Sami that shes sorry. She thinks they got off on the wrong foot. Sami asks what shes been smoking. Nicole sighs. Its just that she doesnt have any friends in town--Sami scoffs--for good reason. They have all done some bad things here, but she is willing to forget about the past if Sami is. EJ thinks that sounds lovely. Sami isnt buying it. This is clearly one of Nicoles tricks. Nicole says that she understands. She will just try to find another lawyer--one she doesnt have to beg to take her money. She leaves. EJ glares at Sami and says thanks. He rushes off after Nicole. Sami sighs.
Max walks outside with Stephanie and asks what they should do. She thought they could talk. He wants to know what is wrong with her. He says she doesnt want to worry him with her troubles. Max insists. She finally tells him that her dad is missing, and that shes really worried abut him.
John tells Marlena that she could wear a housecoat and slippers and she would knock his socks off. Marlena blushes. John compliments her hair. She smiles. He thinks hes started without her. She asks what he has started. He beams. He isnt sure, but theyll figure it out soon enough.
EJ tells Nicole that he would be happy to take her case. She asks if he is sure. She doesnt want his personal life interfering with work. Sami huffs off. EJ tries to go after her but Nicole stops her. EJ tells Nicole that he knows what she is doing. If she interferes in his relationship with Sami one more time, shell be looking for another attorney. He goes off after Sami. Nicole squeals. She guesses that means they start tomorrow. She leaves. Maggie doesnt think this is going to end well. Mickey agrees.
Phillip tells someone on the phone that they have to move fast before Chloe is imprisoned. He hangs up and wonders who could have said anything. He flashes back to he and Chloe discussing Brady and Nicole walking in right afterwards. Phillip groans, Nicole, damn it!
Anna tells John, Fortunately, some men are more perceptive about women. I bet you know exactly what a woman like me wants.
Kayla says, You know Bo, maybe we should call the police. Bo replies, No, no, Steve was adamant that that would make things worse.
Ava tells Steve, Were going to have an intimate evening together and luckily for Kayla, she gets to watch.
