6/23/11 Spinelli recap

Writer: Michele Val Jean

Maxie (in super cute black and white dress) is knocking on penthouse door. She is looking for Jason. She gets Sam. She explains to Sam what is going on.

Jason walks in holding his laptop. He is using a prezel as a toothpick and reading the newspaper. Jason says he is glad he is ok. Jackal says hiya Morgan. Jason says what? Jackal says its good to see him, but he isnt complaining about all the cute little chickedi's rolling in and out there. But he says a guy needs a little mano ah mano time. He wants him to bring him up to speed. Jason is just looking at him strangely.

Jason wants to know what he is doing. He thinks he is practicing being in character for his next book. He says he is the real deal. Jason says whatever this is, it needs to stop right now. He says they have problems and he needs him to focus. Jackal puts down the newspaper and says problems, the breakfast of champions. Jason says he got a call from Bernie. He asks if he knows who Bernie is. Jason says there is 20 million missing from the off shore accounts. Jackal says inside job? Jsson says that is what he is suppose to tell him. He said tracking money, handling transfers is what he does. Jackal says he must be pulling his leg, he is no keyboard jockey. Jason says are you telling me you don't know how? Jackal says he has no clue.

Jason puts the lap top in front of him and says to open it up and try. Jackal wants to know where the handle is (he can't open it) Jason says are you serious? Jason opens it up for him. Jackal says thats mildly interesting. Jason says Spinelli a lot of money is missing and he needs to find it for him. Jackal says how much smackers, gets cut off when Jason says smackers? Jason says 20 millon. He says if he doesnt help him his entire organization will be compromised. Jackal says he feels for him, Morgan. He wishes he could help him out, he feels for him. Jackal says he needs one of those tech guys. In walks Maxie & Sam. Jackal says doll face you came back. Maxie wants him to stop calling her doll face. He wants to know why McCall isn't at the office, wants to know if she has any cases that she needs Jackal on. Maxie wants to know why he hasn't fixed him yet. Jason pulls Sam out to hallway.

Spinelli is staring at Maxie. Sam is on the computer with him. She wants to know if the gps system to track cheaters looks familiar to him. Sam is trying to get him to focus. He says it looks like another language. He tells Maxie she looks like she is sporting ??? (again with the accent) she wants him to stop staring at her legs as its creeping her out. Sam brings up something up. Its the video game. Jackal thinks its clever. Maxie tells him he invented it. He says it does not seem possible. Maxie says the saga of stonecold. Says he made a lot of money. He asked her what she is doing Friday. Maxie says see what I mean? Sam says so none of this means anything to you? He says its computer talk, its news to him. He says Jackal PI does not sit hunched over a machine, he is a man of action. He says he looks death in the eye (he was doing this come hither look to Maxie)

Sam wants to know if he wants to go over some cases. Jackal says they have to branch out to do things that are a little more juicy. Sam is surprised. He wants to know why. Sam says you have been really considered with me taking chances lately. Aren't you concerned about me getting pregnant anymore? Jackal gives her a look.

(again with the accent, but basically something about wasting something and her perigotive) Jackal says a dame has got to do what a dame has got to do. Sam says really? Sam says what about the buisness. Jackal tells her not to get hysterical. He says Jackal PI will take on the mean streets solo.

6/22/11 Spinelli recap

Writer: Susan Wald

Jackal tells Maxie she is a sight for sore eyes. Maxie says he was incredible, the way he dropped down and saved her from Lisa. She said taking a bullet that was meant for her was beyond heroic. Jackal says he just lucked in trouble. She doesn't know how she will ever show her gratitude. He wants more kisses, calls her sugar lips. Maxie says the joke is over, doesn't have to talk like that. He says he told her his name is Jackal PI.

Maxie tells Spinelli he is really cute when he does that voice. She just wants to know he is ok. She wants him to drop the act and talk to her. He says its no act sweet face, what you see is what you get. Jackal PI in the flesh. Maxie wants to know if he has amnesia. He explains what happened. He said he should have tackled that crazy dame. He said he got a slight to the chest instead, he apologized. She said he was wonderful. She doesn't know how she will ever thank him. He says its just part of the job, kitten. He remembers going down, Morgan (and whatever he called Dante) busting in. He says after that its a fog. Maxie tells him that Lisa Niles is in a coma. They don't expect her to make it. Jackal says well that's justice for you. He says although he owes her one, as after all she brought out the real him.

Maxie says this is strange. She thinks he had a stroke or a concussion. She wants to get a doctor. He says her baby blues are the only medicine he needs. Maxie is going to ask him a couple of questions. She asks him his full name. He says Damian Milhouse Spinelli (he says something but again with the accents, no clue what but I get he made fun of it) as Maxie says she happens to like it. She asks who he lives with. He says Morgan, Jason Morgan. Enforcer to the big enchilada Sonny Corinthos. Maxie says good so far. She wants to know when he first kissed her. He says she has it wrong doll face. She was on a case with him, text message killer. He says she spotted a car and to cover their tracks, she planted one right on Jackal PI. He says he felt a jolt, like he stuck his lips in an electric socket. Maxie says enough about the socket. She asks what happened on September 24, 2009. He says they didn't get married but had an after party. He says he likes the dame just as much as the next fella but no one holds a candle to her. He says she made him a one woman, man dollface. She asks why they broke up. He says she took a walk on the dark side with Franco. He says he would have hung in, but you (watched several times still not sure what he said) She sits back down. She wants him to name one thing that no one else would know about her. He says she is making this too easy, calls her kitten again. He says the cute little freckles on her caboose. he says once they looked like the consolation (?) Maxie says only he would describe them that way. He says its like real estate. Location. Location. Location. Maxie looks at him puzzled.

Maxie listens as Jackal says he droppd in landing on his feet. He says the broad had hostages. Matt is also listening. Matt says Lisa fired the gun? Maxie tells him what happened. Jackal says that it didn't sit too well with you, dollface, did it? Maxie says it really upset her that she was calling him pathetic when it was obvious that the only pathetic person in that room was her. Jackal says he sticks his neck out for no one, but for you I make an acception dollface. Maxie says you saved my life Spinelli. He says again that his name is Jackal PI, buttercup. Matt thanks him for saving Maxie. Spinelli says that he saved his baby he says so he guesses they are even. He said the real hero was enforcer Morgan. He said something about Dante and the crazy dame. Maxe excuses them for a minute. Her and Matt leave. Maxie is worried. Matt says the tests show nothing. Says he is healthy. Maxie says he woke up with this bizarre personality. Matt says since when has Spinelli ever been completley normal? Matt brings up when Spinelli was Austriallian or the night. Matt says he will be ok, and he has rounds. He will be back.

Maxie runs back in and asks how he is doing. He is hankering for some chow and a shot of whiskey. Maxie says if he had a shot of whiskey he would fall down drunk or be completly naucious. Diane comes in. She says thank goodness you are ok, I just heard the news. Spinelli says if it isn't his favorite red head. He asks how the book buisness is cookie. Diane wants to know if he just called her cookie.

Spinelli recap 6/21/11

Writer: Nathan Fissel (aka one of my other favorite script writers)

Maxie is holding Spinelli's hand when they want to come take him in for surgery. Maxie tells him not to give up. Maxie, Dante & Jason watch as the OR doors close.

(I need characters to stop saying Spinelli fell, he totally jumped)

The doctors & nurses operate on Spinelli. They got the bullet out. Enter Jackal PI.

While they continue to operate (his vitals aren't good). Jackal stands over him. He asks what is wrong with him. He said (something about) the fight of his life. He says so you took a slug, big deal. He says thats one of the hazards of the profession. He said you saved the girl, didn't you? He says she is some dish by the way. He says its time to rally if he wants to make it for the second leg of this man of danger triathlon. He tells him to make it through the surgery. He tells him he has to wake up to see those baby blues looking down at him (It is so much easier for me to hear/understand what 'Spinelli' is saying even with the words I don't have any clue what they mean vs. the Jackal accent *I have trouble with a lot of accents though so I think it would just be me, so if thinks are exact, sorry. I am stopping and rewinding several times when I am recapping here* He says that the dame will express her undying devotion. He tells Spinelli its time to man up, pal. The surgical team has a heartbeat and he is stabilizing. He tells Spinelli that he knew he had it in him, champ.

Maxie is sitting in the room with Spinelli (Sam & Jason look on) Maxie tells them that they wouldn't believe how brave he was. She says he fell from the sky at the same time as Lisa was going to shoot her. She says he was like a hero from one of those old detective movies. Cue a Jackal PI fantasy of Maxie in Jackal McCall PI office. Jackal says he has places to be. He tells her to breeze off. Maxie turns him around and says he saved her, that has to mean something. Cue back to Maxie holding Spinelli's hand telling him he is the bravest man she knows. She says Jason has nothing on him. Looks at Jason, and says no offense. Jason says none taken. Sam wants to go and give them their privacy. Sam says if she needs anything to call her.

Maxie tells Spinelli she should have kept her mouth shut vs. provoking Lisa. Maxie says she was just so pissed at her. She thought for sure she was going to kill her and then he came flying in to save her. She tells him he was so brave. Back to fantasy (Maxie pulls Jackal's tie and says he saved her life. She says she is there to thank him. She wants him to show her how he feels, knowing he has it bad for her. He says it was no big deal. He says he sticks his neck out for no one. He is the only cause he is interested in. He turns around. She says come on Jackal, you know I won't be able to sleep unless I can express my gratitude *arms around his neck* He says well fine. He says express away, sugar lips. And dips her down in a kiss.) cut back to Maxie kissing Spinelli. And he wakes up. She says welcome back hero. He says keep it coming doll face. She wants to know what he just said. He said that the kiss was stronger then whiskey. She wants to know if he is feeling ok. He tells her, his name is Jackal. (and a few other things I couldn't understand even after watching/listening 3x)

Spinelli recap 6/20/11

Writer: Tracey Thompson

Maxie is telling Spinelli that Robin, Patrick & Steve are going to take care of him. Lisa wants everyone up. Maxie says she can not be serious she just shot Spinelli in the chest. She says he needs help because he is going to die. Lisa says the next bullet is going to her, as it was suppose to go to her in the first place. She says she is happy to rectify it. She tells the doctors they have once chance and to make it quick. Steve wants to be able to stabilize him. He says they need to call someone to help them. She wants everyone to sit down. Lisa says the next person who touches Spinelli or disobeys in any manner, the next bullet goes straight into Spinelli's head.

The 4 of them are just sitting there while Spinelli lies dying. Lisa says they already discussed the charges and now its time to give the evidence. Patrick tells her that she is a good doctor and she isnt just going to let a innocent man bleed out. Patrick just wants to help him, as he knows she doesnt want this on her concious. She says actually he spent months telling her how twisted she is, calling her a kidnapper, stalker, blamed her for ruining his marriage, she says someone who is that vindictive cant possibly have a concious. Steve says she isnt that person, not deep inside. He says she got lost. He wants to help her. He says this doesnt have to end badly for anyone. Lisa chuckles and said to stop with the pyscho babble. She says there is no amount of therapy going to give her her life back. She says just like the no amount of pleading is going to save Spinelli. Maxie is crying. Patrick says this is about him, he wants to help Spinelli. Lisa says we already established that SPinelli wouldnt be in this position if it wasnt for Maxie. Maxie says she did not make her pull the trigger. Lisa talks about Maxie's judgements, talking bad about her for hours. She says she is the judge and the jury. She says they are back in session. Patrick gets up. He says fine, I am guilty. Let Robin and Steve help him. Lisa says dont try to be the hero, we already established you are a selfish coward. She says she does believe in due process, she says she will give him a chance to defend himself before she renders the verdict. She says the prosecution now calls Dr. Patrick Drake to the stand. She does the swearing in. Robin cuts in and says that she doesnt even want to hear the truth. She says she was asking for her benefit as she thought she would want to hear it. Patrick says says he has nothing to hide. She asks Patrick if he ever loved her.

Lisa tells Patrick that its a simple question. Did you ever love me? He says it was college. He wanted to get through med school, no time for relationship. She asks if thats how he feels about Robin. He talks about Emma is the best part of his day. She says if the home life is so perfect why was he spending so much time with her. He said they used to be friends, and they were hanging out, catching up. He also said he was giving her mixed signals. Lisa tells him to tell the truth or be held in contemptive court.

Steve says there isnt much he can do for him, but says that someone must have lifted the lockdown. Lisa says that just means time is running out. Maxie just tells Spinelli to hang in there, that help is coming. Lisa says nothing would make her happier then to put a bullet in her heart (Robin's) Lisa says since he cant answer the other question, she asks if Robin is boring. Patrick says marriage is challenging, he says she isnt boring. Lisa says for a brian surgeon you arent very bright as it would be smart to humor the lady with the gun. She wants to see if Steve can do any better. She asks if he thinks she is a capable surgeon. He says there is no denying her skill in the operating room. She wants to know why he threatened to fire her. He said he couldnt afford her personal problems compromising patient care. Lisa wants to know about Robin and Patrick's personal problems. She says everyone in hospital knew about them. Steve says they were never arrested for attempted murder. Lisa brings up all the times Robin accused her of some outragous charges and how they were always dropped. Robin says because they never had enough evidence until now. Robin says her Uncle Mac is going to make her pay. She wants to know if Steve ever considered to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Steve says when they slept together he tried to not left it effect his abilty to run the hospital. He says but he take full responsibilty for letting the lines get blurred. She is pleased someone is willing to. Steve says he likes her. He says he really did. He says one of his biggest regrets is that he didnt help her more. He says he should have stepped in sooner. Lisa said she asked for a testimony not his pity. Robin says she asked for the truth and then never wants to hear what anyone has to say. Steve admits he thought maybe Robin over reacted a few times. He says thats how good she was at covering her tracks and manipulating the situations. He says its sad she really is a gifted doctor and now her career is over. She says she is the judge. She says its time for next witness and holds gun at Maxie.

Lisa wants to know at what moment Maxie decided to destroy her life. Maxie wants to know what answer will get Spinelli help. Robin tells her to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. she says the only help Spinelli will be getting is another bullet to put him out of his misery. Maxie says she knew Lisa had an agenda right from the start. The way she flirted with Patrick, talking about whole time. She says Robin gave her the benefit of the doubt because she is a decent person. Maxie says the truth? I'm a lot like you, I used to play the same games to get someone elses husband into bed, thinking they deserved better. She says she invested everything and came out with nothing, just like her. She says but thats where their similiarites end because she became a stalker, as she picked herself up and moved on she goes on to say after 1 drunken night with Patrick she lost her self-respect, her career and now her freedom. She wants to know if its worth it? Lisa just responds that she is the only one who gets to ask questions. Maxie says she is crazy if she thinks she is going to get out of there. Lisa says who says I want to get out of here? I am having a blast. She laughs.

Lisa says she calls Robin Scorpio Drake to the stand. Robin doesnt see the point, as Lisa will twist everything anyways. Lisa says she would never hurt Emma. She says its not her fault she has them for parents. Patrick interupts and Lisa says this is Robin's time. She wants to know if the babysitter gave her permission to take Emma. Robin says you mislead her. Lisa just wants an answer. She says she had permission to take Emma for ice cream. Lisa says she brought her home safe and sound. Spinelli starts to act up. Steve lifts him up so he can breathe. Robin asks if she admits she is wrong, can this just be over?

Lisa wants Steve back in his seat. Steve says he can't do that as his lungs are filling up with blood. Patrick gives him a pillow. Robin wants her to let them go. Lisa says trial will continue whether witnesses are breathing or not. Phone rings. Maxie is ordered to answer. Dante wants to know if everyone is ok. Maxie says Spinelli was shot and that he is bleeding really bad. Lisa says you tell them court is in session. Dante wants to make a deal. He wants to know what Lisa's terms are.

Lisa says nothing they can deal is going to be good enough. Steve says it will be her only chance. Patrick says she has to let Spinelli go. He says it will proove to police she that she didnt intend to kill anyone. Lisa is shocked that now he wants to give her the benefit of the doubt. Maxie just wants her to tell them what she wants to Spinelli can go. Lisa mocks Maxie. Lisa says she has what she wants, her day in court with all of them. Lisa says anymore interuptions and Spinelli isnt the only one who dies. Maxie says she is serious, says please dont call back and hangs up.

Lisa is standing over Spinelli. She kicks him a few times. Maxie wants her to stay away from him. Robin gets up. She says she has no idea how it feels to watch someone you love die, powerless to save them. Lisa says she pulls out the HIV card any chance she can. She wants her to sit. She says we all know your stupid sob story. Patrick wants to make a closing arguement. He says this isnt the person he knows. That this isnt the person he cared about in college, who used to be fun, and caring and always up for a challenge. He says she can still be that person. He wants her to put down the gun and walk out the door. He says he will walk with her. He says but first he has to trust her. Lisa has tears now.

Lisa says bravo. She says she almost believed his performance and them remembered how he could convince any college girl out of her panties. He is very good when he wants something. She says happy men don't cheat on their wives. She wants him to stop now. She appreicates his effort. Patrick really wants to help Spinelli. Lisa says she has reached a verdict.

Lisa says for her it was just sex, just two co-workers having sex. She says its really no big deal, it happens all the time. She says they are all found guilty for scapegoting. For blaming her, for their inabilities for life. She says their punishment is death. She fires her gun and then--in bursts Jason firing his gun. Maxie screams Spinelli. They want Jason to put gun down. Lisa is now holding Robin. Patrick is holding his arm. He wants Jason to just do it. She pushes Robin into the room and then runs. Dante tackles her.

Maxie is holding on to Spinelli's hand. She says they are getting him help. Robin goes to check on Patrick, who was grazed. Steve says he is in shock. Jason knows that means they don't have much time.

Gernee is in hallway, they get him there. Matt is going to operate. Maxie says Lisa was going to shoot her, she says he has to save him. She tell tells Spinelli he will be ok and that Matt is going to save him. She says he knows she wouldn't be able to take it, if anything happened to him.

Dante is the worse cop EVER. OMG who doesnt cuff her??? Seriously hope he gets fired and shipped back to Bensenhurst. She got up and had needle to Robin's neck telling Patrick to convince her not to kill her.

Father's Day Challenge

We have offically surpassed our Father's Day goal. We wanted to donate 5 totes in honor of the dad to be, but only one day into the challenge, we've already hit our goal! Amazing! Think we can double that? If we do, another generous anonyomous matcher will donate 5 totes. Whatever you can give is great and will help provide comfort t...o kids in need. This isn't a donate X amount for it to be matched challenged. This is simply about getting 5 totes, so donate $1 or donate $5--it all counts towards the goal of getting 5 more to be matched.

Need more motivation? Here's a clip of Bradford talking about what kind of dad Spinelli-- and he-- would be.

Bradford is already a wonderful father to this little guy. Huck is very luck to have Bradford & Kiera as his Daddy & Mommy as will his new little sister (whenever she decides to bless the world with her presence)
