In New York with Melanie, Charlie attacks a mugger, who turns out to be a famous German actor. He also trips the actress who is playing the hooker. She can't walk, and Melanie steps in.


Bianca's temper tantrums continue, and Travis and Erica are stunned. Though Travis and Jack think a psychologist would be a good idea, Erica adamantly refuses. "I'd be telling the world I failed," she sobs. But with encouragement from Jack, she finally relents. When Dr. Tolan digs too deep, Erica refuses to bring Bianca there. Instead, she takes Bianca to New York to try to talk to her.

Angie and Derek share a close moment, and she tells Cal she's not ready to spend a weekend with him. When Angie warns Derek that Sharla has a crush on him, he lets her down easy. Sharla is still crushed and blames Angie, whom she accuses of wanting Derek for herself. Angie doesn't see the truth in this, but Derek does.

In exchange for his silence, Palmer presents Charlie with forty thousand in cash.... Will tells Opal that Palmers's mother died of a degenerative brain disease, a fact Palmer's thought of himself. He's ,more concerned than he lets on.

The pressure is getting to be too much for Tom, and he nearly takes a drink.... Ceara wants to make love with Jeremy, who is having trouble controlling himself. He's stymied when David says he wants to move in with him- just until his condo is ready.


Trevor says he'll kill Adam if he doesn't come to a settlement with Natalie. "I wasn't born a cop," he subtly threatens. Meanwhile, Adam is worried that he's the one driving Brooke out of Pine Valley, but is touched when he learns the real reason. Brooke claims she doesn't care about him, so he fakes an attack. When she comes near, he kisses her and she responds. Adam goes home to find a baby for Brooke; he doesn't want her to leave town.

Later, Adam intercepts Brooke's call to Stuart about her farewell party. He tells Stuart the party's been canceled, and attends as him. Brooke recognizes Adam instantly, and he tells her he's found a baby for her to adopt. She reacts badly, and Trevor steps in to the rescue, starting a fight with Adam. When Brooke tries to break it up, Trevor impulsively warns, "Watch it. She's pregnant." The room is hushed.

I never can picture Angie and Derek together. I guess this was the Sandra Quartermain Angie that no one ever really accepted?

I always liked when Trevor would stop being the big moral voice of Pine Valley and go a little bit batsh!t. I guess today if one of PV's "heroes" did that I would be furious with moral outrage, but oh well.

In New York with Melanie, Charlie attacks a mugger, who turns out to be a famous German actor. He also trips the actress who is playing the hooker. She can't walk, and Melanie steps in.

Was this any less woeful oncamera than it is on the page?

Taylor plays on John's insecurities by saying she's worried by Sharlene's decision to discontinue therapy. Also, she says Sharlene's been acting like Sharly, lately-tardy, forgetful and unreliable.


A the trial, the judge sees two Marleys and demands an explanation. Marley explains that Vicky had been covering for her since the trail began. Everyone's shocked and Cass, thinking on his feet, claims it was part of his strategy. Using reasonable doubt as part of the defense, he says it's obvious that most people can't tell the twins apart. He states that after Marley faked fainting, he had Vicky change into Marley's clothes, then switch places. The judge seems to buy it, although he's livid and places Cass in contempt court. Realizing Morgan is out to get Cass disbarred, Frankie tries to dig up dirt on the D.A. She learns Morgan slept her way to the top. When Frankie threatens to tell the press this, Morgan backs down.


Marley tells Michael that she ran away to protect Vicky. She believes Vicky shot Jake. Michael's blown away, but still suspects that Iris is the guilty party. Michael questions Vicky about the night she confronted Jake and returned with blood on Marley's coat. Outright, he asks her if she shot Jake. She denies it, then faints from nervous exhaustion. That night in the hospital, she has a nightmare about Jake terrorizing her. She thinks it's real and that Jake's faking his coma. She visits his room, where Ryan and Jamie find her hysterical. But later, Vicky catches a glimpse of a disguised woman visiting Jake. Paulina overhears her tell Ryan this and lies that she saw the woman too.


Jenna's being smothered by Felicia. Lucas tries to befriend Jenna and tells her about his and Felicia's child being put up for adoption against their will. Latter, Felicia is surprised to learn that Jenna has spent practically her whole life at the convent school. She wonders why Gloria would leave her daughter there for so many years.

Ken asks Rachel to elope and she agrees. They head to the justice of the peace, who says they're in too much of a rush. They decide to have a big family wedding later.

Taylor manipulates Sharlene by lying to her about the time of her baby shower, knowing she'd miss it and maybe blame Sharly. Dean reminds her about the shower, and she's embarrassed when she arrives late. Taylor then plays on her insecurities.


To get Felicia's attention, dean plays his demo tape on her P.A. system at Tops. She's not amused. He later breaks into her apartment, hoping to leave his tape for her. Instead, he scares Jenna. Felicia's angry, but lets him off the hook. Jenna retrieves Dean's tape from the trash. Later, when Matt takes Jenna to Sassy's on a date, dean isn't thrilled to see the "convent girl."


Frankie learns from Ryan that only three of seven blond hairs found on Jake's shirt were tested. So Frankie manages to get strands of hair from Paulina and Iris, while Cass obtains the same blond wig from the costume shop where Donna rented it. Ryan has the samples tested at the lab. Later, Frankie sees the results and is shocked by what they reveal.

Lori, from the adoption agency in Chicago, stops by to visit Jake. Frankie spies her and wonders if she's the mystery woman. But before she can question her, a nervous Paulina spirits her away. She warns Lori that Jake had lots of girlfriends.


Olivia gets the hint that she's suffocating Sam and angrily tries to run off. But Sam stops Olivia by asking her to move in with him. She's all for it.

Investigating Jake's shooting for an article, Amanda questions Jake's loan shark, who gives her a lead to another guy. She plans to meet the seedy character at the Cory cabin and tells Paulina, who warns Sam. At the cabin, Amanda's clearly not endangered by the informant, but a worried Sam shows up and scares him off.


Donna confronts Vicky about going to see Jake the night he was hot. During their argument, Vicky reveals, "Jake had been shot before I got there. Who did it if it wasn't Marley?"

The judge lets Cass continue to defend Marley at the trial. Jamie's called to the stand, and Morgan establishes that Jamie and Marley have had a relationship since Nice. But when Cass cross-examines him, Jamie reveals he's not having an affair with Marley; they've never slept together.

Vicky's subpoenaed. She enters the courtroom in time to hear Chris, Jake's neighbor, say he saw Marley leave Jake's loft. Cass gets Chris to say he could have seen Vicky, not Marley. While Vicky's on the stand, Morgan brings up the point that Marley has "Stolen" two of Vicky's men. She incites Vicky to blurt out that she's hated Marley for that.

Hiding out at the family summer home in Lake Geneva, conducting cryptic telephone calls with her brother, the besotted Barclay, Angel Lange appears to have been trying to harass Lily Walsh. The masked man surprising Lily at the office, the charred doll identical to the one arriving in the mail- all the clues pointed to Angel. But a series of events reveals that what Angel has been doing was preparing for life after her inevitable divorce from Holden- and life away from her father.


Angel and Barclay has conspired to embezzle money from their father, Henry Lange, so that Angel can be financially independent. Henry is incensed that Angel refused to spend the holidays with him and, on a trip from Holden, he finally looks for her at Lake Geneva. Alone in the house, Angel remembers her father coming after her before. Henry searches the bedrooms for his daughter. Henry takes the phone off the hook. Angel panics. She can't believe he's found her again.

Henry rapes he. In Oakdale, Barclay tells Holden that Angel has been the victim of incest. He begs Holden not to call the police or Angel will be humiliated if her secret is revealed. In Lake Geneva, Angel takes an overdose of sleeping pills. Holden and Barclay rush her to the hospital.


Carolyn Crawford is thinking about having an in vitro pregnancy; she's very aware of being unable to satisfy her husband's sexual needs. Jessica tells Carolyn that the courts usually favor biological parents in case of disputes.


Barclay tells the doctor who pumps Angel's stomach that her overdose was "accidental." When Angel learns that Holden knows the facts of her relationship with her father, she wants to die. She tells him. that he may have his freedom if he'll promise never to tell anyone that her father abused her. Holden says he won't leave her side.

Henry sets out to find Angel again, but Holden takes her to the farm, where rape victim Iva tries to convince her to go into counseling. Cal Stricklyn agrees to give Angel a haven away from Henry, and Holden tells Lily that Henry has molested Angel since childhood.


Barclay tells Holden that Henry intends to bring Angel home. Over his dead body, says Holden. Henry walks into the office where Holden and Barclay are talking, and Holden nearly kills him. Kirk Anderson restrains him. Later, Henry demands to know why Holden attacked him. Holden tries to suppress his fury, but Henry pushes him too far. He tells the furniture mogul that he's going to see that Henry pays for what he did to Angel.

Henry learns from Lucinda's assistant, Jane, that Barclay is at Cal's. He's there all right, but is getting too sloshed on vodka to be of much use to his sister. When Henry shows up, Barclay is passed out. Henry tells Angel that Holden wants to have her committed. He'll help her if she denies that he abused her. Angel escapes to the Snyder farm. Caleb's there. She goes into hiding again, and Caleb refuses to tell Holden where she is. It's Angel's wish, Caleb says, because Holden broke every promise he made to her.


John and Lucinda fly down to the Dominican Republic and finalize the divorce. Pathetically, Lucinda makes some amorous moves. John admits the sparks are still there, but he wants out. Lucinda overhears John tell Iva he'll be available to the bachelor auction she's sponsoring at the hospital. Susan jokes about bidding on John. Kim wants Susan to get a job in another city, but Susan decides to accept a teaching post at Oakdale University. Bob tells Kim that if they can't solve their problems with Susan around, they won't solve them if she moves away, either.


After losing her show to Kim, Blythe Nelson resigns from WOAK, deciding to sue Tonio for breach of contract. The dethroned media star fills Kim in on how Tonio proposed to her and promised PATTERNS to her. Everything changed once Sabrina arrived in Oakdale, Blythe adds. Meanwhile, Tonio's proposed to Sabrina.

The lascivious Latin jets to Toronto under a false name to meet with Richard Tyrell. Blake Stephens is meeting with him when Reyes arrives. Tonio warns Tyrell that Blake may be spying for Duncan. McKechnie urges Blake to get out of there, but the line goes dead. Duncan heads over to the police, and Tonio gives the order to have Blake killed.


Henry tells Barclay he can prove his attempted embezzlement and he'll prosecute if his son talks. Next, Lange hires a private investigator to find Angel. Barclay tells Holden he can't help him. Angel keeps in touch with Caleb and Henry tells Virgil, Lily's masked man, it's time to take care of Holden.

Ridge enters Brooke's dressing room with the minister and asks Brooke to marry him. She happily accepts and the ceremony is performed. Stephanie appears in the doorway, thrilled that Eric is now free to come back to her. Just then, Brooke wakes up, disoriented, and realizes it was all a dream.


Thorne falls ill the morning of the wedding, so Ridge agrees to be the best man at Eric and Brooke's wedding. Little sister Katie informs the bride of the new arrangement, and Brooke isn't sure she can handle this turn of events after her dream. She summons all her resources and marches bravely down the aisle and takes her place next to Eric. The couple are pronounced husband and wife.


Everyone's wondering what the new husband has planned for the honeymoon. Brooke is stunned to see a beautiful hot-air balloon waiting to whisk them up and away. They climb aboard, en route to a mystery destination, as their guests wave and cheer. They sail through the air until Brooke looks down and notices two horses saddled up in the middle of the desert. The balloon descends, and when it lands, the newlywed Forresters saddle up and ride, eventually arriving at an Arabian Nights style tent. Brooke is flabbergasted. She tells Eric that he's created the perfect honeymoon for them. He replies that he believes their fairy-tale romance will never end.


Ridge asks Taylor to speak with Stephanie about the divorcee's unrealistic hope of getting Eric back. The doctor is hesitant, but eventually agrees. Stephanie doesn't take well to Taylor's unsolicited advice.... Jake tells Felicia he's decided not to confront his father again. He just wants to get on with his life. The two finally make love, leaving them both thrilled and happy.... Julie presents a very convincing argument for Clarke to leave Sally's employ.... Felicia requests a few more days from Sally to make her decision about leaving her family's company to work for Spectra.

Taylor believes Stephanie's attempt to befriend Eric and Brooke is unhealthy, but Stephanie doesn't want Taylor or anyone else telling her what to do with her life. She's convinced Eric's marriage is the result of a mid-life crisis, and he'll eventually return to her.


As Stephanie is packing to go away for a while, she has a mild stroke. Disoriented, she grabs her suitcase and staggers out of the room, accidentally kicking her purse under the bed. Later, her car runs out of gas in a dangerous neighborhood. As a trio of seedy men glare through the car window, Stephanie wonders how she got there. The Forrester maid is perplexed when she finds Stephanie's purse, containing her wallet and airline tickets, under the bed.


When Taylor declines Ridge's dinner invitation, having already shared supper with Storm, Ridge says that they're being unfair to Storm. Maybe they shouldn't see each other anymore, Ridge suggests. Taylor leaves in tears. Storm agrees to give Taylor one more week to consider his proposal, and quizzes her about her ex-husband. Taylor's not forthcoming.


Brooke's so enchanted with her honeymoon retreat, she tells Eric she wants to go back there for all their anniversaries. Still, she and Eric are thrilled to get home and see their baby.


Clarke worries that Sally offered Felicia too much to come work for Spectra. What's the real deal Clarke doesn't want Felicia at Spectra? Sally wants to know. Clarke's a hot commodity right now-has he received another job offer? covering, Clarke agrees with Sally that no one would take better care of him than she.

Felicia agrees to join Spectra on the condition that there's no publicity until she gives the go-ahead; she wants to be the one to tell her family about the career move.

Julie lines up investors for Clarke's own fashion house. Now that he no longer needs Sally, Julie gushes, Clarke can get a divorce. Loyalty wins out over greed, and Clarke orders Julie to phone back the investors and cancel the deal. He also tells Julie he thinks they should cool their relationship, but Julie has no intention of backing down.


Thorne and Macy entertain Felicia and Jake. Recounting a memory of his father teaching him to ski, Jake gets uneasy. It doesn't make sense that the man who spent so many wonderful times with him also sexually abused Jake.

Helen visits Jake and is delighted to learn that her son is in love with Felicia. She admits she's torn about Ben- he's been a great husband for years, but she can't forgive him for what he did to their son.

Robert confronts Rita. He knows she mailed Bobbie's earring to Tony. Scorpio reveals he has dirt on Rita; it seems her charity isn't quite legit. "I want you out of town. Now," he barks.

Bobbie's making a fool out of him, Rita tells Tony, who's on his way to Florida with his family Bobbie tells Ruby about Broxton's baby file. If Scorpio catches on to Mark's activities, destroy it, she orders. Robert wants the Willow Shores water retested. Tony receives a note from Rita: "You and I didn't have the most honest relationship, but at least I never tried to hide my affairs."


"Why didn't you tell me you were in love with Robert?" Tiffany asks her sister. Cheryl insists it can work for her and Scorpio once their baby is found. Tiff refuses to believe she had Robert's son.


Edge takes Decker to New York to meet the other partners in the operation. Decker spots bootleg cassettes of newly released films. "We could make a fortune," Edge promises, adding that he's done it in Europe. So the media agency would be a cover for the illegal operation, Decker deduces. He still wants "in."


Dawn moves in with Monica. Alan confides he made a big mistake with Lucy. "How could I let her destroy what we had between us?" he asks. "You knew what you were doing," Monica counters.

Scott and Lucy battle over the baby's trust fund. She's going to cut him out, he realizes. "I've got everything I want. I don't need you," she blurts. Alan appears and demands to know what's going on. "The baby your wife's having? I'm the father," Scott declares and leaves. "Don't leave me!" Lucy begs Alan and gets a cramp. He doesn't believe her-until she collapses.

Lucy's in premature labor. A worried Scott shows up at the hospital. He and Alan blame each other and nearly come to blows. Scott confesses all to Tom. "I'm not such a bad guy," he says.

Lucy loses her baby, a boy. Alan is sorry, but he doesn't want to see her. It's over.


"I wanted us to be a family," Scott tells Lucy. "There's nothing- thanks to you," she shoots back. "I love you, but that wasn't enough," Scott says. After he leaves, tears well in Lucy's eyes. Alone, Scott breaks down.

"I never want to see you again," Lucy tells him later. "That child would have given me security, respect. Now I'll never get it. You ruined my plans." She hated carrying his baby; it made her sick. She wanted a Quartermaine baby. Scott's in a daze.


Frisco and Scorpio realize if Bobbie knew of Broxton's treachery and kept quiet, she could be prosecuted. Tests verify contaminated condo water caused the epidemic. Broxton is arrested.


Edge and his partners want Decker to buy Colton's club and use it to front their operation. He'll go along, but insists on doing the commercial for Body Heat. A blizzard hits while Dawn, Edge, Decker and Frankie are at ELQ looking at office space for their agency. They-and Ned- are stranded. Ashton listens to their plans and hears of Colton's plight. He secretly discovers ELQ owns the mortage on Body Heat and the wheels start turning.

Alan shows up at Monica's hotel to chat and dine. "Do you have any feelings left for me?" he asks. Yes, she admits. "Sometimes when I look at you....," Alan begins. She cuts him off. He's been through a lot of upheaval and doesn't know what he's saying. Alan backs down and thanks her for being there for him. Sometimes, she adds.

Lila calls a meeting and tells Alan, "I'm taking my share of Edward's stock, adding a little of my own and giving it to Tracy so she has exactly the same amount of shares as you." He's furious- especially when Tracy points out that if she and Ned join forces, they will have control.


Broxton tells Scorpio that he has interesting documents for the Commissioner. Scorpio refuses to cut a deal. "Once you see my hand, your life will never be the same again," Broxton promises.

Bobbie cuts short her vacation, claiming an adoption emergency. "You're having an affair," Tony accuses. Bobbie denies it, but he's skeptical and flies home with her. Bobbie jimmies a locked drawer in Broxton's office and activates an alarm. She grabs the "Billion-Dollar Baby file" and hides. Broxton (Out on Bail) finds it's missing. He takes out the ledger, but, before he can do anything else, Robert and Frisco arrive.
