"BAGS, BANGLES & BOOTY" (TV-14, DL) (HDTV)
BOBETTE GOES TOO FAR TO PROVE A POINT AND MORGAN TRIES TO REPAIR HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH JULIA � Morgan (Jeff Hephner) confronts Bobette (Laurie Metcalf) about her manipulation of Julia (Marsha Thomason). This time, Julia can't easily reconcile what Morgan does; his work for Prestige may have taken its final toll on her. Bobette won't own up to her schemes but instead pushes Morgan to help out Prestige borrowers (and marijuana growers) Dan and Melody McBride (guest stars Kevin Skousen, "Crash" and Lori Tirgrath, "New Beginnings"). Detective Yapp (Chris Browning) has shaken down the McBrides, so they're too deep in the hole to pay Prestige. Morgan approaches Yapp to cut a deal, but Yapp is in financial trouble himself. Spread too thin between his wife and his girlfriend Tiffany (guest star Lauren Poole), Yapp makes Morgan break things off for him with the latter. Morgan suspects Yapp has stolen Julia's DNA database from her campus lab, an allegation Yapp denies. Meanwhile, Bobette joins Brandy (Katie Lowes) at Madison's (Jenny Gabrielle) bridal shower, where they receive a chilly reception from Larissa Conroy (guest star Stefanie Black, "Without a Trace") and Madison's mother, Bonnie (guest star Annie Goodwin, "Bench Warmers"). What's worse, Bobette finds a conniving debtor, Emmy Aldridge (guest star Lise Hilboldt) in attendance, and goes to great lengths to discredit her in front of the other guests. Though Cooper (Jay Ferguson) is now worried about his troubles with wife Cherise (Kimberly Estrada), he and Roy (Nick Searcy) spend an otherwise leisurely day waiting for Peepaw (Joseph Negus), who visits a local "rub n' tug." Michelle Griego, Chad Brummett, Nigel Gatwood, and Jesus Mayorga also star. Stephen Cragg directed the episode written by Stephen Hootstein (#108).
