ARG, the one day I am home, NBC and Direct TV totally screwed up the last 15 minutes of the show. First there was no sound, and I had to attempt to read lips, and then they started showing golf for a few seconds! Sorry about this!

Chloe is in her bedroom wondering what Phillip thinks about her appearance, but then thinks she is being shallow because Mimi doesn't even have a home. Downstairs, Craig and Nancy plan a press conference to invite Mimi and her family to come live with them until they can find a new home. Nancy and CHloe celebrate as Nancy announces that they should be on the six'o'clock news tonight. Craig just hopes the Lockharts won't accept their offer, and Nancy assures him that they won't because Mimi would rather spend a night in a cardboard box than stay under the same roof as CHloe. Suddenly, Phillip shows up to see Chloe. Craig questions Phillip about what happened at the dance. Phillip says he knew nothing about the prank and swears to make it up to CHloe. Nancy invites Phillip in and tells him about how Chloe has been getting called from many other boys, and given their history, she might not want to date him again. This news upsets Phillip, who promises to be a good friend to CHloe. Craig likes that word, friend, and warns Phillip that he'll regret it if he tries to make a move on Chloe. Nancy yells to Chloe that Phillip is here. Chloe says she can't let Phillip let her see her like this, and starts prettying herself up. Chloe comes downstairs, and Phillip returns something she dropped at the Habitat for Humanity office. CHloe asks Craig and Nancy, who were just standing there watching them, for some privacy, so they leave. Phillip is impressed that Chloe ripped into her parents for eavesdropping. Phillip tells Chloe that she's changed since the dance, she used to sound off at him all the time, and now she seems almost shy. Chloe says that sometimes she feels like talking and sometimes she doesn't, that is just the way she is. Nancy continues to try and listen through the door, but Craig yanks her away. Nancy then takes a call about something (no sound), probably her and Craig's new master plan. Meanwhile, Phillip and CHloe continue to talk, and end up laughing. Nancy goes back to the door to continue eavesdropping, and Craig once again pulls her away from it. Nancy is furious with Craig and yells at Craig that she doesn't like having that boy in her home, and she wants to find out if he had anything to do with that chicken blood incident!

At the hotel, Belle and Shawn show up to see Mimi. She is shocked to see them, but Shawn tells him that they are the three musketeers. Belle and Shawn have brought someone from Habitat for Humanity to talk with the Lockharts about their situation. The Habitat worker tells Maureen that she knows the plant where her husband worked, and many of the other laid-off workers there are struggling to survive as well. Belle and Shawn tell Mimi that they want to help them help themselves by building a new home. (No sound from here on out). The Habitat worker seems to say something about giving them fifty thousand dollars to buy supplies to help them build their new home, which excites Maureen.

At the mansion, Victor tells Kate and Lucas that he's hired a private detective to follow Sami to Italy. Lucas and Kate are furious, and they say they knew Roman wouldn't give up. Victor says Roman isn't helping Sami, Brandon is! Lucas can't believe Brandon is helping Sami against them after what they did for him. Kate says that she can believe it, he's been trying to get Sami into his bed for months. Victor points out that Sami is very beautiful, and Lucas also made the mistake of jumping into bed with Sami. Kate defends Lucas and says that he was lonely. Victor tells her that she should know, she is the queen of loneliness. Lucas yells at Victor for verbally abusing his mom for her one mistake, a simple kiss with Nicholas. He asks Victor why he doesn't just smack his mom if that will make him feel like more of a man! Kate asks Lucas to back off, but Lucas refuses. Lucas tells Victor that when he was in the nursing home his mom took care of his house and struggled to keep his business afloat. He wonders how long he'd last if the situations were reversed? A few weeks? Victor says that Lucas is wrong, but Lucas reminds Victor how he jumped into bed with Vivian when his mom was stuck on that fishing boat for an entire year. Kate says that Victor thought she was dead, but Lucas says that is no excuse. Lucas tells his mom that Victor treats her like trash and she is better off without him. Victor says he is not forcing anyone to stay with him, so they can leave if they want. Kate has no intention of leaving, and Victor informs Lucas that he and Kate have been together a long time, but they have a lot to work through. Victor asks Kate to go away with him to sort things out. Kate doesn't think now is the best time to go away, which is why Victor proposes they go to Italy.

Sami and Brandon are driving to the airport. Brandon asks Sami if she is having second doubts about going to Italy? Sami says no, and she tells Brandon about her huge fight with Austin. Sami says she told Austin several things she wishes she could take back, but she wishes he would help her try and get her son back.

In Salem Place, Eric is shocked to learn that Nicole married Lucas for five million dollars. He asks her how she could take the money? Nicole says the answer is she is a whore. Nicole ends up walking away from Eric, and walks out into the street. A car comes speeding towards Nicole, and Eric runs towards her. Nicole avoids being hit, and the driver was Brandon! Brandon says he didn't know he was driving so fast, and Nicole says she wasn't watching the road when she crossed. Eric asks Sami where they are going? Sami says Brandon is taking her to the airport so she can go to Chicago for personal reasons. She asks Eric not to tell Brenda about this because she took sick leave to take this trip. Brandon asks Nicole is she is okay, and she says she is fine. Brandon and Sami leave, and Nicole tells Eric that she wishes Brandon had hit her because she doesn't have much to live for. Eric tells her that she couldn't be more wrong, she has so much to live for.

Eric and Nicole return to Eric's place. He tells her that she can still help Sami by telling her that she was payed to marry Lucas. Nicole says that Lucas doesn't know about the payment, and he really does love her, plus he is a good father to Will. Eric asks Nicole what she's done with the money. She tells him about her private account, and how by the end of the month she should have 25 million dollars. Nicole admits she'd like to take the money and run away with him and never look back. Eric asks what about Lucas? Nicole says she doesn't love Lucas, and Lucas doesn't make her feel the way that he does. Suddenly, Nicole gets a call from the hospital about her biopsy results. She learns that she doesn't have cancer. However, sneaky Nicole pretends like the news is bad. Eric asks her what they said? Nicole cries, and Eric hugs her. He says he is sorry, and she says she is too. Eric promises to stand by her every step of the way. Nicole asks Eric there is one thing he can do for her. She begs him to make love to her one last time. Eric and Nicole kiss, and Nicole jumps up on Eric, who carries her into his bedroom.

Brandon and Sami board the flight to Italy, unaware that they are being followed at first. However. Brandon soon realizes that some man keeps coming up to first class to spy on them. Sami thinks Brandon has read too many spy novels, so he tells Sami to go back and talk to the flight attendant and see if the man listens. Sami does what Brandon suggests, and the man is very curious about what Sami has to say. She returns to Brandon and tells him that she had to order them vegetarian dinners, but the man was interested in everything she said. She asks Brandon if she thinks he is a mobster? Later, when the sound came back, the private investigator calls Victor and reports that Sami and Brandon are flying first class to Rome. Victor tells him to let them enjoy themselves for now, once they land in Rome, the fun is over.
