So much Spinelli, so little time!

Quick Recap!
I'm trying to get the recaps completely up to date, but they seem to be instead several days behind! So, excuse this recap for being it's less than extensive self! Spinelli has been on SO much recently (and he's supposed to be on everyday for a while) I'm having a little trouble keeping up! Hopefully this quick summary of events will help!
--May 29th--

Maxie and Lulu bicker over Spinelli while Sam tries her hardest to make Spinelli look like a stud. Later, Spinelli tells Sam he is a total wimp but Sam wants to help him with that. After removing his shirt, Sam tells him his body isn't as bad as he laments, and perhaps some muscle toning is in order. Also, she comments on his posture and says she wants to build his confidence. Later Sam confides in Lucky that she thinks Spinelli is a sweetheart that deserves to get the girl, but doesn't think he has a chance. Spinelli leaves Sam's place after a vigorous workout.
--May 30th--
Spinelli first told Jason that he was working out to impress Maxie. When Jason tells Spinelli that he has taken over the business, Spinelli is extremely concerned for Jason knowing that his friend doesn't really want the job. He worries what will happen to Jason if he takes on Mob Boss without really wanting to be in charge. Diane comes in and tells Jason he needs a better alibi than Spinelli if he's going to retaliate against the Zacchara's for destroying a shipment. Spinelli (who seemed oddly more CONFIDENT) told Diane he would be an excellent alibi, thank you very much. Later, Sam meets Spinelli at Sonnybucks. He tells her the workout is just SO hard and he doesn't think he can do it. Later, he goes to see Maxie at Crimson and walks in on her making out with Johnny Z.
--June 2nd--

Spinelli interrupted the Johnny/Maxie kiss. Johnny told Maxie to back off and Spinelli told her Johnny was trying to save her from further embarassment. After this scene, Spinelli went to take out his frustraion at the gun range. He ran into Sam. They went back to the penthouse and she told him he had "manly skills" besides shooting things. Then Sam and Spinelli practiced a romantic dinner together, but Jason showed up and awkwardness ensued. Spinelli explained he was just getting lessons from Sam to impress Maximista. Jason rolled his eyes annoyed. Sam told Spinelli and Jason that all Spinelli really needed to do was stop thinking he needed to be the Brooding Bad Boy Jason Wannabe.
--June 3rd--

Spinelli went to Crimson to apologize (with flowers) to Maxie in case she thought he believed her to be a promiscuous. She didn't seem too bothered by anything but told him he couldn't leave the flowers because Kate had "ambiance" rules. He was a little dejected when she called him her best friend. Obviously, he wants more than that, and then tried to ask her to a classical music concert in the park followed by dinner. She seemed to think it was all about making her "look smart" like they agreed a few months ago. He told her she misunderstood his intentions but then received a call from Patrick Drake.
Spinelli went to Jake's to see what was up. Patrick got Spinelli to spam Robin's blog in exchange for tips on attracting ladies As Spinelli was jackaling, a girl walked into the bar and wondered what was up with the flowers. Patrick and Coleman (who assured Spinelli the woman wasn't a "cortesan") told him to go for it. Spinelli and the woman conversed (a little awkwardly but much better than past attempts). She said she liked the way he talked (Spinelli is such a ladies man). The scene ended there to be wrapped up on Wednesday.
I hope that catches everyone up!
