Lucy, Scott and DV
DV turns down Lucy's offer to become partners with him. Lucy is furious,
after all, it was DV who wanted them to become partners from the
beginning. I feel that you're only coming to me because of desperation,
DV told them, and asks them what has happened to make them change their
mind. Scott says they didn't jump on his offer originally because they
didn't want to appear too eager. But now they've had time to think about
it and realize what a great opportunity it is. DV suggests they approach
this from a different angle. What if he will produce their line for a
flat rate, no partnership, no ties. Scott wonders what the catch is.
"There's no catch, trust me", DV assures them.
Back at Scott's place, Scott and Lucy are confused at DV's sudden
turn-around. They promise that they are going to get the better of him,
whatever he's up to, but unfortunately neither of them have any idea how
to do it. Lucy thinks they should get their minds off the whole thing
for a while and suggests dinner at the Outback. Scott suggests they skip
the going out part and have their own party at home. Lucy heads upstairs
to change into something that will take his mind off business
Frank and Courtney
Frank and Courtney race into the Scanlon house, totally thrilled that
they managed to get some of Julie's money from the bank. They only took
a small portion out so as not to arouse suspicion, but it's still a lot
of money, stacks and stacks of it. Frank and Courtney are so excited
that they throw some of the money into the air. They can now rent an
apartment across from Joe and Karen's and still have plenty of money
Frank is finishing picking up the money when Courtney gets off the
phone. She just made an appointment for herself at the spa and helps
herself to a few hundreds to pay for it. Frank starts talking about all
the things he wants to buy, a cell phone, ringside Knicks tickets, but
Courtney reminds him that he can't start going around spending all that
money. People will be suspicious. Frank promises to restrain himself
until they fly off to Rio. Courtney, on the other hand, needs to spend
lots of money to convince Chris that she inherited her husband's money.
Victor, Mary, Joe, Karen, Frank and Courtney
At the Recovery Room, Victor surprises Mary with an engagement ring, a
beautiful and rare gray opal that he found himself when he was in
Australia. Mary is thrilled, "six billion human beings on this earth and
I'm going to marry the best one of all", she says, giving him a kiss.
At the hospital, Joe is treating a young boy with a high fever and
headache. Joe's pretty sure it's meningitis and decides to put the boy
on broad spectrum antibiotics even before the test results come back.
Joe and Karen run into Mary and Victor at the Recovery Room. Karen tells
them what a great job Joe did treating the little boy. Mary has to
literally wave her hand in front of their faces before they notice the
ring, which is not small. When they finally notice, both Karen and Joe
are genuinely thrilled for the happy couple. There are hugs all around
and Joe says he couldn't be happier for them.
Frank and Courtney arrive and Courtney is wearing a brand new and
obviously expensive outfit. Mary told them the news about her
engagement to Victor and both Courtney and Frank congratulate them. Mary
also mentions they are celebrating because Joe saved a boy's life today.
"My brother's quite a guy", Frank replies, not meaning it as a
compliment. Karen encourages Frank to join them, but he refuses, he has
But instead of working, Frank daydreams that he is a famous doctor. In
his dream, he steps off the elevator in the hospital and is surrounded
by adoring nurses and doctors, including Karen, congratulating him on
winning the Jonas Salk award and asking for his autograph. In his dream,
Joe is a janitor mopping the floors and Chris is a homeless man. He
throws them a nickel and he sits back and laughs as he watches them
fight for it. Frank is still smiling at his daydream when Courtney walks
over to the bar. "Forget about Rio", he told her, "staying in Port
Charles is going to be a lot more entertaining."
Now it's Courtney's turn to daydream. She imagines herself and Joe
getting married. Karen appears, fat from eating too much ice cream in
her depression after Joe left her. Karen begs Joe to take her back in
the dream, even grabbing onto his leg, but Joe shakes her off and
carries Courtney away. Back in the real world, Courtney jealously
watches as Joe feeds Karen some ice cream. "Enjoy your ice cream while
you can", Courtney says quietly.
Courtney is admiring Mary's ring and Mary asks her to plan their
wedding. Courtney says she'd love to do it. Mary went over to sit with
Victor, who has an idea. Lucy's been designing romantic dresses, why
don't you ask Lucy to design your wedding dress, he suggests. Mary likes
the idea. Across the room, Karen and Joe are playing darts. Karen
suggests to Joe that they have a double wedding with Mary and Victor and
Joe agrees. At the bar, Courtney's telling Frank that the money hasn't
changed anything, she intends to be Mrs. Joe Scanlon and Frank is still
determined to get revenge on Chris Ramsey.
