Phillip reasons this was Brady’s office until recently and talks down to the former gardener. He moved his stuff to the janitor’s closet, alludes to it being trash, and wants to get to work.

Eric points out he is a priest no more, but Angie knows he still has a big heart and hopes he will consider ... Xander admires his own name on the desk and sits with his lucky pen. Alas the drawers are locked with no key in sight. He curses ...
Phillip enjoys his coffee at the square and heads off with the keys to the desk. Jan greets him and he snaps she has her nerve. He last saw her with a detonator in hand!

If she goes anywhere near Belle and her daughter, he will take care of her. For good! Xander spies the scene and gets a wicked idea ... First, he demands his desk keys. Phil calls them his keys and advises him his office is across the men’s room. Then he arrogantly walks away. When Xander mentions what he overheard, Jan suggests he mind his own biz … Claire leaves in a huff after Belle warns her she would regret getting near Jan ... Marlena tells John an aneurism is a trauma to the brain so tis a hard time. Perhaps that was why he lost his cool with Sami. John just wants to know whether the condition is permanent ...
