Nicole sighs, saying she knows she can fight him on this, since a paternity test wont match, but that will bring up a host of questions that Nicole wont be able to answer. She thinks that if that happens, EJ will dig into things, and it will only be a matter of time before EJ figures out he and Sami are Sydneys parents.

She considers blackmail, but remembers she doesnt have anything on Chad. Suddenly, Nicole gets an idea, and her eyes light up.
EJ scoffs, asking if that is supposed to scare him. He reminds Sami that most parents would do anything for their kids, and she isnt anything special. Sami wonders if EJ falls into that category.
