Victor visits the ranch and talks to Nick about giving Grace a job at Newman Ent. Later, Cole comes up to the main house to talk some more to Nick about Grace. This could blow your marriage out of the water. I've got a bad feeling buddy, you need answers and you need them now.....Nick goes to see Grace. We've got unfinished business. Grace wants to forget and pretend nothing has happened. Nick says no way. I need answers. I was wasted, why didn't you stop me?! Grace tells him that he can't blame everything on her.

Phyllis is telling Danny that he must wait for her so that she can go to the test with him and Daniel. She rushes out snagging Joni and instructing her not to let them leave before she gets back. Phyllis gets some sleeping pills out of Tim. She somehow gets a syringe. She is now waiting at the hotel for Brian. She has the wine waiting and puts the pills in her pocket. Brian arrives. Says he doesn't know why he came. He's married now. Phyllis is attacking, trying to undo his pants, then putting a lip lock on him. She pours him some wine, putting the powder from the pills in his glass. We see him later, real groggy and trying to get things going with Phyllis on the bed. He passes out and Phyllis gets her syringe........Danny wants to go, Joni is trying to keep him there. He calls the lab, trying to reschedule. Sorry, nothing else available till the middle of next week.

We see Veronica jumping in front of the car again. She is taken to the hospital. She has no ID. They discover the clutched photo of Josh. Veronica comes to. Dr. Gallager, a psychatrist, is trying to get information from her. Who are you? Who is this man? Why did you try to kill yourself? She doesn't tell anything but feels her face and wonders how bad is it. (BTW, they did a really great job making her look really, really bad.) The Dr. says they don't know for sure, but they've done the best they can so far.

Keith tells Jill that he had Tricia followed and knows that she is still seeing that Don Juan, Ryan McNeil (at least it isn't, thatpunkryanmcneil). Jill tells him that she knew. How? Tricia told me and I couldn't break a confidence. Jill tries to assure Keith that Ryan isn't 'doing' anything with Tricia. They are just friends.........Tricia is seeing Ryan, wondering where she stands in his life. Ryan tells her that he has to see what is left, if anything, in his marriage. I've got to give it another month. Am I going to see you? Probably not a good idea. Tricia whines, you don't have to string me along for a month, tell me the truth now! I'm never going to see you again. This is all a big game to you, isn't it Ryan, now it's goodbye Tricia! She turns to leave, Ryan grabs her arm and it's kiss, kiss time.

Nick questions Grace some more on WHY DIDN'T YOU STOP ME?! Grace says were you *really* that out of it Nick, that you didn't know it was me? Nick wonders what kind of a fantasy world Grace is living in. Grace finally tells Nick the reason she didn't stop him was because she was terrified! I was so frightened! Your wife was just upstairs and the baby was right there. What could I do?! Nick wants to talk some more but Grace yells for him to GO! LEAVE! (She is putting on a real good show here! She even got Nick to apologize!)

Jack has visions of Diane while at the office. Also visions of Diane with Victor. He throws the engagement ring across the room. It is picked up by Ashley. I can see you're having a rough time. Ashley goes and talks to Diane. Are you in love with Victor? Diane says to know Victor is to be overwhelmed by him. Ashley tells of her regrets where Victor is concerned. Diane goes to see Jack. I'm so sorry Jack. All I feel for you Diane is pity. Please don't hate me Jack. Like I said, Diane, I feel sorry for you. Victor will use you then toss you aside for the next conquest. Victor enters the outer office and overhears part of the conversation. Jack, you aren't painting a very pretty picture of me. I'm only relating what all you ex-wives have told me. Victor asks Diane to a meeting. They both leave. Later, at Victor's office, Victor wonders if Diane is going to run away after listening to Jack. I have no intentions of running. That's not my style. I like an adventure. Victor gives Diane a gift. Inside is an engagement ring. Diane wonders is this real? It's like a fantasy come true. I'm so thrilled! Yes, yes, yes, I'll marry you! Embrace, kiss, kiss. (yuk yuk)

Thursday, July 10, 1997

Nick tells Cole about his talk with Grace. Cole can't believe that Grace isn't taking any responsibility. She's more dangerous than I thought. Nick wonders if he can really trust Grace to keep her mouth shut......Grace at her apartment with this really smug look on her face. Tony walks in. You look like the cat that swallowed the canary. You know what Tony, maybe I am. Everything is fitting together beautifully. I was backed into a corner with no way out, but this opportunity presented itself. But Gracie, you're not the the conniving type. It's like judo, Tony, you use the energy from the opposite force to flip your opponent to the mat. Boy Gracie, you sure are full of yourself........Sharon returns home from the store and starts rambling, Nick has flashes of Grace. The phone rings, it's Grace for Sharon. Sharon is noticeably upset with the conversation. Nick thinks the worst. It turns out that Cassie fell off the swingset and hurt her ankle. Grace can't get any doctor to see her, no insurance. Sharon wonders if it is okay with Nick to help her out. Nick wonders to himself how many more times this kind of thing is going to happen and how much he can take with the wondering if this is the one to blow his life apart.

We've got tons of wedding stuff with Dru and Liv. Dru and Neil. Liv tearing up a photo of Neil and talking to Nate about his daddy, Nathan. Liv asking Lily to be her flower girl. Malcolm presenting Liv with an engagement ring.

She makes it in time and is with her 'men' as the blood is drawn. She makes excuses to visit the ladies room and the guys leave. Phyllis returns to the exam room. Oh my, she left her purse! She finds a label and puts it on the blood vial she brought, takes Romalotti, Sr. blood vial and makes the switch. The lab tech enters and wonders what she is doing there. I forgot my purse. Silly me! The tech asks Phyllis to hold the door for him. Phyllis says to herself, you've done it again Phyllis! You've gotten away with the impossible. There won't be any problems with keeping Danny now!
