“Welcome to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with me, your monologuing host, Victor Kiriakis. Let me bore you to death with details you, the audience, already know.” Sheesh, Chloe had the right idea here.
“I've basically raised those twins with Samantha since Lucas went to jail.” I’m glad both EJ and Sami pointed this out. I’m also happy Sami’s mystical savings are finally running low since she’s been living on those since Mythic imploded.
“I'm not speaking as a therapist. I'm speaking as a woman. Look, people do strange things when they're in love. And who are we to judge?” See, audience, EJ was in love with Sami! We were just kidding about all that sociopath stuff.
“I'm a changed man, John. I don't want anything to do with my father anymore” and “I can assure you I'm not the man that I used to be.” Oh, don’t remind me, Good EJ! I was hoping to get some sweet jokes out of you today, but noooooooo, Good EJ is too nice to insult someone Pansy.
“A side to your mother I've never seen.” Hey, you can ask your dad about it if he ever wakes up.
Hi Pookie! Welcome to Days! I guess Nicole can come too.
Grade: Ah, decisions, decisions. I love Ejami, yet I hate J&M. The dialogue was better today with the “parallel universe” mention, but Good EJ chose to spite me by making no jokes. Nicole and Pookie showed up, but the Kiriakis dinner was mindnumbing. Eh, I’m feeling charitable. B.
“Is that what they're calling an entry-level job nowadays?” Well, you’d certainly know, wouldn’t you, Immigration Dude? Twenty plus years, and you’re still in one.
“When I have a job, I have incredible tenacity.” Oh, don’t we know it, EJ.
“What, all of a sudden you have a license to practice in this state?” “Yeah, all the work I did for my father. You don't remember that?” No, I don’t, EJ, BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENED. *cough* retcon *cough*
“I’m EJ Wells.” Considering how quickly James said this entire sentence, I think this actually might have been a slip by him, especially since EJ has said “EJ DiMera” the previous two times he’s introduced himself and Immigration Dude refers to him by that in this very episode. If so, it’s more than forgivable. If not, having two names works just fine for Hannah Montana. Hannah also rocks a wig, which Mickey might want to look into.
Hmm, Ejami went to the bathroom together. I wonder why. EJ holding Sami’s purse? No. Ejami celebrating the one year anniversary of Sami finding Toasty EJ? Nah. Ejami “freshening up” together? Oh yeah baby.
“I'm nothing like my father.” ROTFL, sure, Days. You keep on keepin’ on with that. And “It's not like I was her first choice of son-in-law.” Or Roman’s, or Sami’s, or the writers, or Corday, or NBC…
Grade: Better dialogue as I actually liked the antibiotic joke, and the writers are actually attempting to retcon somewhat thoughtfully. We’ll keep the A-.
