Chelsea comes into the Cheatin Heart to find Max grumbling under the bar. He adjusts something with a tool and laughs, saying he finally got it. He stands up and sees the look on Chelseas face, asking whats wrong. She says its about her grandma, and its really bad.
In the park, Lucas talks on the phone while Chloe waits nearby. He hangs up and tells her that Austin and Wills results are being sent over, and Billie is getting tested later on today. Chloe thinks thats good and that the odds are getting better. Lucas frets, saying he read that seventy percent of patients dont find a bone marrow match within their family. Chloe tries to look on the bright side of things, telling him that that means thirty percent do. Besides, he cant show Kate how scared he is. Lucas says he cant help but be afraid, but right now, he just wants to enjoy being with Chloe. They kiss.
At Maggies house, Melanie sits at the computer and grumbles about Phillip making her learn an encyclopedias worth of information. She thinks she needs a break, as shes been at it for over half an hour. She leaves Maggie a note, asking her not to touch the project shes working on, even though it is Maggies laptop. Melanie heads out the door.
At the hospital, Phillip sits with Kate in her room. She tells him that he can leave, and that she doesnt need someone to hold her hand. Phillip says he is just there for support, but Kate wont have it. She tells him that he doesnt have to worry about her fighting. She plans on fighting like hell, and she told Lucas the same thing. Phillip says he isnt worried about that, but she isnt going to fight this thing alone. Daniel comes in just then, agreeing that Kate wont be alone.
At the pub, Marlena apologizes to John, saying that there has been a mistake. The Dr. Taylor she referred him to is a much older man. Charlotte explains that he was her father. She has taken over his caseload. Marlena wonders why she didnt feel the need to notify her, since the referral was specifically for her father. John tells Marlena not to start a fuss, especially since things are going so well. Marlena whirls around and glares at him.
Daniel tells Kate about her family members being tested to donate, but she says she doesnt want Will to be considered, as he is too young. Phillip thinks he should be given the chance to save his grandmas life. Kate fusses, telling Daniel that she doesnt want any more visitors, especially smartasses like Phillip. Just then, she doubles over in pain. Daniel wants to give her more morphine, but Kate refuses, saying that she wants to feel alive as long as she can. She asks Phillip to leave again, but he refuses. She sighs, saying that she has to know that he will respect her wishes. If she doesnt find a donor, and the treatment gets too bad, she has to know that he will abide by whatever she decides. Kate cries as Phillip strokes her face. She asks him if he will able to do that.
Maggie runs into Melanie at the pier, and she tells her that shes taking a break from studying. She explains all the information Phillip wants her to know for the job is overwhelming, and she wonders if he only offered her the job to prove that he isnt as mean and stuck-up as she thinks he is. Maggie says he isnt like that, but Melanie wonders why he wont return her calls. Maggie explains that he has a lot of things on his mind right now. His mom is back in the hospital. Melanie says she feels badly for him, and wishes she could do something to help. Maggie thinks she can and explains that the hospital is trying to find a bone marrow match for Kate. After they check her family members, theyll have to expand their search outside the family. Melanies eyes widen and she squeals excitedly, saying that this is her chance to do something nice for someone else.
Marlena reminds John that he was angry when she handed his case over to someone without asking him. She wonders why he isnt bothered that a person other than the one she gave the case to started treating him. Charlotte quickly explains that she never treated John, and that they just had a consultation. Marlena huffs, saying that she still should have been notified. Charlotte tells her she left her several messages at her office. Marlena sighs, saying a temp is working, so that is probably why she didnt receive them. Charlotte goes on to explain that her father thought highly of Marlena, and so that is why she was eager to take the case on after his death. Marlena apologizes, saying she hadnt heard, and Charlotte tells her that she thinks Marlena is right about Johns case--it does have to do with the research her father immersed himself in. She says she is sure she can help John, but there is one thing that bothers her about the case--John and Marlenas relationship.
Lucas and Chloe lie in bed. He apologizes to her, saying she should be able to celebrate her engagement. Chloe says its fine. For once she has a happy secret to keep instead of a sad one, and besides, she knows Kate doesnt need anything else to think about right now. Lucas wishes he knew how she always manages to stay positive. Chloe thinks she has a lot to be happy about .She has a wedding to plan, bridesmaids to select, and the prospect of moving into a new, lovely home with Lucas. But most of all, shes thrilled to know that she and Lucas will be facing the future together--through good times and bad. They kiss passionately.
Max brings Chelsea a drink, asking if she wants anything to eat. Chelsea says she is just numb. She cant believe they were just having a party for Kate, and now she is back in the hospital. Max tries to remind her how strong Kate is, but Chelsea doesnt want to hear it. Max says he understands she is tried of hearing clichés, and apologizes. Chelsea sighs, telling Max that everyone in the family is being tested as donors for Kate except for her. She feels completely useless.
Kate tells Phillip that she plans on fighting this, and taking any chances for a cure that she can. But if and when all those chances are gone, she wants Phillip to try to understand that, and to also try to make everyone else in the family understand it, too. Phillip promises to try. Kate cries, saying she is only asking this of him because she thinks he has turned into an amazing man. She asks him to leave, as she has to talk to Daniel, and Phillip kisses her. She reminds him they wont speak about this again and he heads off. She asks Daniel if he thinks she was too hard on Phillip, but he says no, and that she had to take care of it at some point. However, he doesnt even want her to think of the future in that way anymore. She has much more important things to concentrate on.
Outside, Stephanie comes up to Phillip with some papers to sign from Titan. He signs them and thanks her. She says she understands that he probably doesnt want to talk right now but she is here for him if he needs her. They hug just as Melanie comes around the corner. She stops short and spies on them. Phillip tells Stephanie that theyre hoping for good news later on as the test results from the potential donors come in. Stephanie tells him that she also got tested. She knows its a long shot, but you never know. Phillip agrees, and asks he to tell his secretary he will be here all night. He adds that he wants Stephanie to take the rest of the day off. She thanks him and heads off. Melanie comes over as Phillip slumps in a chair with a sigh. He asks her what she is doing here.
Charlotte explains to Marlena that since she and John are divorced, but she was still handling his treatment, she thinks the professional and personal lines are blurred. John agrees, saying he appreciates that he and Charlotte were able to meet in the park. Marlena whirls on Charlotte, reminding her that Johns treatment should be medically-based, as he needs a battery of neurological tests. Charlotte tells Marlena this was just what she was talking about. She isnt sure Marlena will be able to step back and respect the confidentiality of her and Johns relationship. Marlena thinks she should ask John what he wants. He tells her that he does want to continue seeing Charlotte--as long as Marlena agrees to back off for his sake. Marlena gapes.
Daniel hovers over Kate, taking notes. She wonders why he is still waiting around for test results, as a nurse could do that. Besides, she is sure he hasnt eaten yet. Daniel jokes about her being a nag and Kate bursts into tears, saying shes scared. Shes scared that he is becoming too personally involved in her case. Daniel says she doesnt have to worry about that. He cares for her, and he is going to do everything in his power to ensure that she recovers. Kate still thinks he is putting too much pressure on himself, especially considering what happened to his wife. Daniel says this isnt about him or his wife, its about her. Kate smiles through her tears, calling him a liar.
Max tells Chelsea that she is starting to piss him off. She cant donate to Kate because she already donated part of her pancreas to save Bo. Its isnt as if she is the only one with working body parts, and its time to give someone else a chance to save a life. He stops himself and apologizes, but Chelsea tells him not to bother. She came here to talk to someone that wouldnt let her whine or feel sorry for herself, although she wishes Max could have done that without yelling at her. She smiles through her tears, saying that this whole situation is a bitch. Max hugs her.
Lucas and Chloe make love.
Phillip lays into Melanie, asking if she understands the concept of privacy. She apologizes, saying she just came down to get tested as a donor for Kate, but shell leave. Phillip stops her, and she says she knows what he is going through, since she acted oddly after her father died. Phillip snaps that his mother isnt going to die. Melanie apologizes again and heads off, saying shell leave him alone, ad that she just wanted him to understand that she knows what hes going through. Phillip sighs.
John hopes Marlena will back off so he can continue his treatment. He heads off to take phone call, telling Charlotte and Marlena that they must have a lot to talk about. They take a seat at a table, and Marlena hopes she knows this is all a big game to John. Charlotte says she does, and that she had to manipulate his feelings for Marlena just to get John to agree to more treatment. She and Marlena talk about her father and his academic research, and Charlotte says she is more like Marlena than her father. If research doesnt have practical human applications, then she isnt interested. She goes on to explain that she has left her fathers hospital, and will now be affiliated with the one Marlena works at.
Melanie and Maggie run back into each other at the docks, and Melanie tells her she went to the hospital, but she didnt seem to have help Phillip at all. She complains that she never says the right thing, even though she knows what he is going through. Stephanie on the other hand, has no clue, and she seems to always say the right thing. Maggie tells her that she has to start doing the right thing for the sake of doing it and not to score points. Melanie swears that she really wanted to help and wasnt thinking of scoring points. Maggie believes her, but reminds her Phillip is going through a difficult time right now. It might be best just to leave him alone.
Stephanie runs into Steve and Kayla in the park. She drops her coffee and curses, practically crying. Steve asks her what the matter is.
Daniel brings Kate a Christmas ornament and sets it by her bed. She laughs, saying its hideous, and Daniel agrees, saying he just wanted to get her into the Christmas spirit. Kate sighs, saying she has taken a lot of holidays for granted, and she hopes she gets the chance to make up for that this year. Daniel vows that she will live to see many more Christmases than just this one. A nurse comes in just then and hands Daniel a slip of paper. He tells Kate that the test results are in. She sighs, saying she knows exactly what she wants for Christmas. Phillip rushes in, asking if there is any news. Daniel tells him all the results are in, and he is heading off to the lab to pick them up. Kate asks Phillip to call Lucas, and he agrees, assuring her that everything is going to work out. He and Daniel head off. Kate cries, saying she hopes so.

Marlena and Charlotte talk about her new job at University hospital. Marlena offers to help her in any way she can, but Charlotte thinks she might regret it, as she is going to have a million questions. John comes back over ,saying he knew theyd have plenty to talk about. Marlena tells him about Charlotte working at the hospital and Charlotte adds that her office is right next to Marlenas. John grins.
Melanie agrees to leave Phillip alone for now, but she vows to do well at her job and show Phillip shes capable of handling the position. Maggie is sure she is and offers to walk home with her. She heads off and Melanie mutters to herself that she plans on doing her job as well as Stephanies.
Stephanie tell Steve and Kayla about Phillip and Kate going back into the hospital. She says he is a really great guy and that shes worried about him. He even gave her the day off, which is crazy, considering hes thinking of someone besides himself and his mom right now. She bursts into tears and Steve and Kayla try to comfort her.
Lucas and Chloe head into Kates room and Chelsea and Max approach outside. She thanks him for coming with her, but says she can handle being alone now that she is with her family. She also heads into Kates room. They all fret and wonder where Daniel is. He rushes in and Lucas asks if they have a match. Daniel says they do, but first they need to know it isnt a family member. He also had the database run a test of previous patients for matches, and they came up with one. Kate asks who it is and Daniel says its Chloe. She gapes.
Chloe tells Phillip, I wish you didnt know--hell, I wish I didnt know I was a match.
Rafe tells Sami, Everything is going to be fine. She retorts, You have no idea how dangerous Stefano DiMera is!
Stefano tells Nicole, Its not EJ that wants to talk to you--I do. She asks, About what? He replies, I think its time that we both put our cards on the table, dont you?
