    Let The Scams Begin

    Wednesday, February 13 2008
    Matt wrangles a dinner invitation from Margo. Paul and Lucinda scam Craig. Meg turns down a job offer. Henry gets played in a poker game.

    At the diner, Vienna is trying to convince Henry to leave work early for a romantic evening. Henry suggests they go to the track! She thinks he is tired of her but Henry insists he can never get tired of Vienna. Gray arrives and takes a seat. Vienna tells Henry to get rid of the gambler but then thinks better of it and takes the order herself. Henry returns to the counter and watches as Gray flirts with Vienna. He orders pepakokker and coffee. Vienna brings his order and talks to him about the diner. He flirts a little more but Vienna doesn't catch on. Henry interrupts and drags Vienna away from Gray. He orders Gray to leave; Gray invites Henry to a poker match. He says no but as soon as Gray leaves, Henry makes an excuse to Vienna and leaves to gamble! At the poker game, Henry wins a little but then Gray turns up the heat and soon Henry has nothing left! A little drunk, he says they should play double or nothing and wins! Henry is about to cash out when Gray taunts him. Henry stays in the game - and loses everything! He doesn't have the money to pay up. Gray offers a solution: if Henry gives him Vienna for one night he will forgive the debt! Henry tells Gray to forget it and slams out of the hotel room.

    Casey is alone at home with Matt shows up. Matt asks about all the kids in the Hughes family, specifically Adam. Casey changes the subject and invites Matt downstairs to play some games. Margo arrives, hears the boys voices and wonders if Adam is home! Casey and Matt return upstairs and Matt offers up a lie: that he is a friend from Oakdale U. Margo asks him to stay for lunch. Tom comes home and the boys go back downstairs. Margo tells Tom that she really misses Adam. Matt listens to them for a few minutes. Soon, they all sit down to eat. Margo asks Matt about his life and school. Matt says he had to drop out for a while because he is broke. Margo and Tom invite him to move in! Casey tries to derail the conversation but Margo stands firm and says Matt can move in when he is ready! She leaves to get dessert from Al's and Tom goes to make a call. When they are alone, Casey asks what Matt is planning. Matt says he won't make trouble. Matt plays the guilt card, reminding Casey that he helped him get early release. He promises to leave soon.

    At the diner, Vienna becomes worried because Henry has been gone so long. Henry walks in, looking very down and tired. Vienna rushes over and asks if he is in trouble. Henry says things are fine and that he was just looking for doggie treats and pulls a small box from his pocket. She forgets about poker and promises not to doubt him.

    Craig is packing up his office when he realizes Meg is doing the same thing. He catches her gazing at a picture of them, and tells her that he doesn't want Worlwide or Montgomery Enterprises - he wants her! Then he grabs a picture of Paul from the trash and suggests it remain there forever. Meg angrily asks him to leave but Craig just keeps talking about the changes she made in him. He says they can still be a family. Meg points out that he has lost all three of his children and wonders why she should trust him. Craig points out that Meg is no paragon of virtue and that she can't stop loving Paul - a man more manipulative that Craig is. He walks out.

    Lucinda is at The Lakeview, feeling more guilty than ever. She remembers her last conversation with Dusty. Paul's arrival brings her back to the present. He asks what has her so upset, not understanding that Dusty's death is affecting her badly. They argue about Dusty. Finally Paul sits down and tells Lucinda she should distract herself by working with him to rid Oakdale of Craig forever. Lucinda is intrigued. Next, Paul meets Emily at Java and tells her that he needs help to get Craig out of the picture. Emily calls Craig, asks him to meet her at Yo's and hangs up. Then, she smiles at Paul! Paul disappears and Craig arrives a few minutes later. Emily asks about his job prospects but Craig cuts to the chase. Finally she says she can tell where to find Johnny - for a price! She says she overheard a conversation between Lucinda and Lucy and that the girl is calling Lucinda at 3 o'clock that afternoon.

    Meg is about to finish packing when Paul walks in. He says he isn't there to win her back, he is there to offer her a job - at Worldwide! "Congratulate me, I own it," he says! He badmouths Craig's business acumen and says Lucinda wants to concentrate on her family since her near-death experience. Meg congratulates Paul. He offers her a job! Meg believes this is another attempt at winning her back; Paul says he knows they are over but that he still wants her to live her dreams. He says he has gone over her plans for charitable works and loves them. She says he is just like Craig and turns him down! She leaves. Paul glances down and sees their photo in the trash.

    Lucinda arrives at a park and notes that Craig is following her. She gets out of the car and starts talking to "Lucy", pretending not to notice that Craig is close behind her. She carries on about "Lucy's" new beau, how Johnny is doing and finally makes a date to meet them in Barbados in a few weeks. Lucinda leaves. Craig calls his travel agent and books a flight to Barbados!

    Lucinda, Emily and Paul meet at The Lakeview. Lucinda says Craig took the bait and will soon be out of their lives forever. Emily isn't so sure. Lucinda walks off. Emily tells Paul they are even and leaves. Paul gazes at the picture of Meg and dreams of making love to her. Emily returns, sees him looking at the photo and says it will never happen!

    Meg returns to the farm and is looking through her box of office things. She daydreams of making love to Paul.

    Couples of Oakdale get to ask "What if" and take a chance at living their dreams!

    OK. First off....Soffie....Like a lawyer is going to be able to get her her baby back....maybe if she used him BEFORE she kidnapped the kid and made her sick.

    Next this whole Murder thing. Tried as an adult? I dont think so. Even if he did steal the dummy, burn the dummy (which we all know did not happen) even if it was premeditated. The man threatened him, the man raped his mom, the man was a lyer. And con artist. After all it WAS sam who had a record.....Maybe send him to a facility for counceling. Maybe to a juvy center. But tried as an adult for first degree....I dont think so.

    Finally what is Margo thinking....? Inviting a stranger to move in with them. Katie had to practically Beg her to let Maddie stay there. And maddie was Margo's brother in laws sister at the time, a good kid. Now she just invites this ex con to live with them, with out checking him out first. I dont know when this writters strike started or when it will be fixed...but come on...did becoming Chief of Detectives cause her brain to go loopy.

    Ok...I am now stepping down off my soap box.....

    Have a good day!

    This show looked and read boring today. I won't go home and waste my time watching this unbelieveable stupid storyline.

    It is strange how Tom and Margo can let someone that they have no knowledge of to come into their home. My first thought would be where does Casey know him from? His only true friends were Will and Gwen, and this guy is not one his other class mates.

    I like how Lucinda, Paul, and Emily played Craig. I guess this is how the writers are getting rid of Craig since they fired him. I like that. We have something to look forward to seeing Craig again...

    I don't like what the writers are doing to Henry and Vienna. Give Henry a break! Wean him away from gambling and make him a productive citizen of Oakdale.

    "Couples of Oakdale", that sounds dangerous, I hope it isn't going to be be what I think it is. Paul just doesn't want to give up does he, sooner or later I think Meg might give in. I think Craig might actually take the bait and leave the show for a while and come back maybe this summer and be played by a different actor. How much money does Paul have anyway to buy Worldwide like that.

    How can you let someone you just met 3 minutes ago move in with you, yet let a kid you've known all his life get the shaft-I'm talking about Parker.

    Do you ever wonder if the actors get their scripts, read them and shake their heads in disbelief?

    If they don't they sure should. I can't believe how unbelieveable some of these storylines are. ARF ARF

    I am ready to see this murder case droped agains Parker. Margo is acting so dense. Casey should have told this guy that he could not live there. Margo is so desperate for Casey to have friends. How ignorant can she be??/ I am also ready to see more of the great actress, Barbara. She needs her family so very much now. I hope Paul and Will and Gwen find out soon and give her the family support she needs during her cancer ordeal and treatment. I think Chris has a crush on Sofie. He is going out of his way to visit her and try to help her.

    Lucinda needs to be playing a major role in this soap again. She is a great actress. I am so sick of Carly and Jack. When they are on, i watch "one life to live". Why did they bring Carly back!!!! Good to see Holden and Lily back together. This soap's ratings are low. There storylines are not exciting. Meg needs to get a life. She is no angel. how can she judge Craig or Paul. she was after paul while he was married to rosanna. what kind of stuff is that!!!! she is no saint. Let's see Alison and Brad more into storylines. Will and Gwen are sickening!!!! Give Hallie her baby and buy a baby. This is so stupid. where is kim, bob, lisa and emma?
