PREVIEW: Jennifer and Jack's first show shocks Salem; Shawn grows concerned about Hope; Kate offers Belle an exciting opportunity. SUMMARY: At Basic Black, Brady arrives to talk to his father, who is in the midst of a meeting with Kate. Kate excuses herself so the two of them can talk. Brady starts off by thanking John for giving him time off to be with Chloe, especially after he begged him for the job. John can tell there is more on Brady's mind than that and he tells Brady just to spit it out, so Brady says that he is quitting. He goes on to explain that he helped Chloe make a list of things she wanted to do and that got him thinking about his own life. He says that beyond the superficial perks of his job there, he hates it. John says they both knew that he wasn't going to make it his career. John tells Brady he did a good job, and hopes that he has a plan and asks him if he's going back to school? Brady says no, he's going to work for Victor at Titan. John tells him no way. John tells him that he doesn't want him working for Victor because of his "other" dealings. Brady tells him that he made sure what he would be doing was legit, and that Victor would never put him in any danger. Brady also points out to his dad that he isn't the safest person to work with either because of his own dealings with Stefano and Tony. John realizes Brady is making sense, and Brady asks for his blessing and John slaps his arm and wishes him luck. John then asks Brady what he is going to do at Titan? Brady says perhaps starting a music division and John wonders maybe creating a record label so he could sign on new talent like Chloe? Brady says maybe and now that the Blue Note is up for sale, that could be a venue to showcase new talent. John knows Brady will be a success and make his mark upon the world. Brady then asks John how things are with Marlena and the twins. Brady says he hopes that Marlena has an easier time with them then she did with him. John tells Brady he's very proud of him and knows his mother would be, too… Meanwhile, Belle comes in to also see her father and she is obviously upset about something. Kate runs into her in the lobby after leaving John's office and she tells Belle that her dad is in taking to Brady right now. Belle says that figures - because she's always waiting in line to talk to her parents these days. Kate and Belle end up back in Kate's office and they are talking about Belle's problems. Belle says she feels bad because her problems are so trivial compared to others – like Chloe. Belle opens up to Kate, and says she feels horrible about her behavior towards Shawn. Kate asks her if she wants to talk about it? Belle flashes back to the fight with Shawn over her panties and she explains to Kate what happened. Kate looks a little surprised and confused, but suggests that she talk to her mom about this. Belle says her mom already feels like a failure as a mom as is, so she doesn't want to bother her with this. Kate tells Belle that she used to be an advice editor and tells Belle to just let it all out and she'll see if she can help. Belle tells her everything. She tells her that Shawn is responsible and trustworthy with everyone but himself. She tells her that Shawn runs around half naked with girls at away baseball games. She doesn't know why he can't be responsible about his own life but he can when it comes to others. Kate asks Belle if it is possible that she has outgrown Shawn? Belle says she hasn't been acting all that mature either. Belle says that she needs something else besides school to balance her life and Kate has an idea. After commenting on how days of the week underwear are hard to find, and Belle agreeing with her, Kate calls it a retro fad and she asks Belle to help her research underwear trends for Basic Black. Belle looks confused and Kate offers her a summer internship at Basic Black… Later, Kate and Belle go to John's office and Kate introduces Belle to John as the newest employee. Belle tells John that Kate offered her a summer internship. John is happy and hugs both Belle and Brady and Brady tells him that he should feel better now that at least one of his kids will be working there. John winks at Kate and Kate smiles… Meanwhile, Lexie has arrived at Carson Palmer's office and he invites her in but before she can explain what she's doing there, he gets a call from the female officer contact at the police department informing him of Vin Ramsel's arrest. He apologizes to Lexie and rushes off... Over at the Salem Police Department, a surprised Shawn arrives to see his father Bo and finds his mother there. She tells him for once there is some good news. She explains that Bo made a big drug bust. Suddenly, Bo hauls Vin into the station. Vin is laughing at Bo and says some people in high places will make him pay for this mistake. Bo tells him that he is not scared. Vin refuses to talk without his lawyer present. Abe says it is a good idea to let Ramsel sweat a little, so Bo helps Vin up out of his chair, by grabbing him by the scruff of his shirt and tells him he's going to sit in a jail cell for a few hours to contemplate his miserable existence before he goes on record. Vin head-buts Bo, and Bo punches him in the face and slams him down on the desk in front of everyone, including the DA, who has just entered, and tells him that he is playing by his rules now! He turns him over to the officers who take him to his cell. Carson Palmer applauses and everyone looks at him. Bo asks Palmer if Ramsel will ever see jail time. Palmer plays it cool and says that it depends on if Bo followed the law. Abe snaps that Palmer owes Bo a thank you for catching Salem's most dangerous criminal, not a reproach. Palmer coolly makes an exit, but runs square into Lexie who was waiting for him in the hallway… Lexie tells Carson that she knows he is in trouble and she may be the only person who can help him. Carson looks interested and Lexie explains that she heard that Jack and Jennifer are going to be starting their talk show today, and they are going to discuss the Vin Ramsel case. Lexie plays it cool and explains to him that she is worried that they will expose confidential information which will cause the case to be thrown out and that could blow his ability to prosecute him. Palmer appreciates the tip, but asks why she is telling him this? She covers again and says she's about to have a baby and wants the world a safer place and she wants to make their neighborhood a safe place. She then throws in there that she has known him since high school, so, why wouldn't she tell him? Carson agrees to check it out and Lexie says that she knows a short cut and will drive him over there… Over at Tuscany, we find Bo, Hope, Shawn, and Zack having lunch. Bo tells them about Jack and Jennifer's show going live today. Hope says she didn't even know about the show. Bo says he has sources that let him know about it, and they will have a "special" guest. Maggie offers to bring a TV over to their table so they can watch it. Hope comments that Shawn is quiet, but he says he is just hungry. Hope tells him he should call Belle and invite her to join them, but Shawn quickly nixes that idea. She asks him if something happened between him and Belle? Shawn covers and tells her no. Maggie then brings over the TV and they turn on the show… Over at Jack and Jennifer's, Jack is shocked when he returns home just before their first show is about to air. The living room is filled with the crew and Jack is going on and on about how the show was supposed to take place in the studio. Jennifer tries to calm him and explains that "Hannah's Household Hints" contract wasn't picked up so they needed to start today, LIVE. Jack is rambling on a mile a minute and Jennifer tries to keep is calm and says that Ralph has everything under control. They strip Jack down and cover him in make up and he frets. Jennifer is sure that making funny comments should be easy, as only Jack can do that. Jennifer and Jack rush to the front door and the countdown begins. They are on the air! Jennifer introduces herself as Jennifer Horton and Jack Deveraux as her husband, well, her ex-husband. Jack is nervous and just stands there and listens while Jennifer attempts to run the show. Jennifer tells the audience that they used to work for the Salem Spectator and that they thought a talk show format would be fun. She turns and finishes buttoning Jack's shirt for him as he manages to utter single syllables and asks her if the opening song will be used all the time? She explains that it is their theme song, so yes, it will. Jack makes it known that he doesn't like it. Jennifer jokes and tells him if they get cancelled and picked up again, he'll get to choose the next theme song. He says he needs 24 hours to prepare, mumbling that this is a deal breaker. She agrees with the 24 hours and shakes his hand to seal the deal as they smile going and break for a commercial. Ralph is off camera, hiding his face in his hands and shaking his head in disbelief… During the commercial break, Jack promises to be better when the doorbell rings. Jennifer tells him that is their first guest and goes to answer the door. Jack realizes they're coming back and panics, but welcomes everyone back to his house, as Ralph keeps correcting him they're in the house. Jack then says that it is time for his pet peeve for the day. He uses his own "TA-DA" sound because there is no other sound effect available. Jack explains that his pet peeve is getting French fries at a fast food restaurant and you have to ask for catsup and then they only give you a couple. And man, are those things hard to open and they don't hold much. He demonstrates that you need to open with your teeth and warns "granny" to watch her dentures as to what you have to do to open the bags as Ralph cringes... Meanwhile, Jennifer has opened the door to find Palmer and Lexie and Palmer threatens to stop what she's doing. Jennifer covers and tells him that they have all the proper permits. He tells he knows what she is doing and he knows about her story on the Vin Ramsel case, and she looks at Jack in the distance doing the show. She tells them he's presenting some hard hitting news right now, as it's obvious he is showing how to open catsup bags. She invites Palmer to come inside and talk to the masses on their show. As journalists they feel it's their duty to present what they found out. Palmer declines, saying he doesn't want her to grill him on TV. Jennifer feels it's their right to say their thoughts then and tells Palmer he's right not to want to face Jack as he knows what a wild card he is. They turn and see Jack talking and waving hands at the camera. Palmer changes his mind, says it is the perfect time to set the record straight. He comes in and heads to the living room and Lexie whispers to Jennifer that she wouldn't miss this for the world and they exchange satisfied smiles and Lexie also heads to the living room. Jack is wrapping up and he tells the viewers to put about 30 packets of catsup in some boiling water for a lovely tomato bisque. Meanwhile, at Tuscany, Shawn wonders if they are going to talk about catsup all the time? Hope says they are probably just trying to make people laugh. Jack then sees Jennifer walking Palmer in and says they're going to commercial and will return with a very special guest. When they return, Jennifer introduces District Attorney Carson Palmer and Jack offers him coffee, tea or catsup? He quickly makes it known that he is not amused and they get on with the show. Jennifer and Jack right away mention Maria Annendel and Vin Ramsel and how they hope they'll be prosecuted. Palmer promises he will do just that. Jack then asks if Palmer knew about Maria's record when he was seen dining with her recently. Palmer is very uncomfortable and they tell him they know the full story. Palmer realizes that they are on live TV just as Jack tells him that they know he and Vin Ramsel are in cahoots and – ta-da! In walks Abe and arrests Palmer live on the air! Jack and Jennifer high five each other and Palmer realizes Lexie set him up. The Brady's are still watching at Tuscany, looking very satisfied. Abe has the officers handcuff Palmer as he reads him his rights, still live, on the air… Back over at Tuscany, we return to the Brady's after Abe has arrested Palmer and Bo said he wouldn't have missed this for anything…moreless
Abe: Carson Palmer, you're under arrest… [ cut to Tuscany; the Brady's watching the live broadcast ] Shawn: Mom, I'd say this is bigger than ketchup. Hope: Mm-hmm. They really got Palmer. Abe: [ On TV ] With your Miranda rights... Hope: You knew, huh? Bo: I wouldn't have missed this. [ cut back to Jack and Jennifer's living room ] Abe: I know how much you appreciate proper protocol. Carson: Just what the hell do you think you're doing? This is ridiculous! Abe: You've been running roughshod over the citizens of this city for a long time. Now it's our turn. Cuff him… You have the right to remain silent… If you wish to give up the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, and if you so desire and cannot afford one, then an attorney will be appointed for you. Now, do you understand these rights as I have read them to you?…
Jennifer: Stall. Jack: I can't stall! We got 10 seconds! Ralph: 5... Jack: 5 -- 5? Ralph: 4... Jack: 4? Ralph: 3... Jack: 3?… 2… What happened to 2? 2… Oh, 2, 2, 2, 2. [ to the camera ] Hi. Hi. How are you? Jack Deveraux here. Welcome. Once again, you're in my house. Ralph: The house. Jack: In the -- in -- right, right. Uh, you're -- right, Schmenk. That was Schmenk. Of course. And, as I was saying, now that you're in my house -- Ralph: "In the house." The house. Jack: Of course it's "in the house"! I mean, that is the name -- "in the house" -- but we are in my house. It's the name of the show -- "in the house" -- but, technically, it's my house. Am I right, Schmenk?… He nodded. All right. Now that you're in my house -- which is mine -- uh, we have a Schmenk. Uh, yes, we have a lot of Schmenk here. Um, do you think we could show our Schmenk on live television? Or is that crossing some line of decency?
Jennifer: [ speaking very fast ] I know, I know. Ricky Diaz came up with this great "in the house" idea, and I really liked it, and I tried to tell you, but you've been so busy, and the reason we have to go on the air today is because the station didn't pick up Hannah's contract -- "Hannah's Helpful Household Hints." She's on a plane to Bolivia to star in some South American Novela. They have three shows that she didn't do. They have to fill the time slots. It's us or nothing, Jack. Jack: I have no idea who Hannah is, but here's my helpful hint to her -- don't drink the water. Do you have any idea what it takes to put up a television show? Oh, you think you do because of "the Jennifer Deveraux show," but it takes more than lights, camera, and a little bit of greasepaint mixed in. It takes preparation, coordination, uh, uh... Makeup Woman: Would you please hold still? You are not blended. Jack: I am not a pineapple smoothie!
