When he walks into the house, he sees that Georgia has it all fixed up with their old furniture. Eddie asks her what is going on and she says "Happy Valentine's Day." Eddie tells her that he didn't realize it was Valentine's Day and he didn't bring her anything. She tells him that is OK. Eddie says that they had better leave before the landlord catches them there and Georgia tells him that she has spoken to the landlord and explained everything about Lucinda and he is letting them stay there. She hands the keys to Eddie and tells him that they can go back to the way the were and live together again. He hands the keys back to Georgia and tells her that he can't do this. She doesn't understand what Eddie means, she talked to the landlord and everything is OK. He tells her that they should be living in their own place. She tells him that she wants him to see what they have together. Eddie tries to tell her how he feels about her, but she keeps interrupting him. She keeps talking about what they have together and how they are going to be the way they were before and she says that she has something else for him and she grabs him and kisses him. Eddie finally gets Georgia's attention and tells her that he is more interested in Katie. Georgia is crushed. She tells him that she is embarrassed and she is an idiot for thinking that there was something more than just friends. He tells her that she is not an idiot, it is his fault for not making things clear. Eddie tells her that they have been through a lot together. Georgia acts like she has been playing a big joke on Eddie and she blows out the candles and starts putting things away and Eddie is feeling like a big jerk because he knows that she wasn't playing a joke. Georgia asks him if he wasn't supposed to be somewhere and he tells her that he has a little time. She says that she has to go by and see her aunt Lu, she promised Lily that she would. Eddie tries to explain to Georgia that they are just friends and it isn't the same for them. Georgia says that Katie is lucky, she barely knows him.

Someone else was supposed to do it, but it turned out that they couldn't do it, so Ben has volunteered to put the pamphlets together. He takes the supplies and goes into one of the examining rooms. Nancy gets on the phone and calls Camille. She acts like Camille was supposed to be there to work and tells her to hurry, they need help with the Outreach Program and she hangs up before Camille has a chance to answer her. Sara Ruth comes in and asks Nancy how the plan is going. Nancy gives her the update and then Sara Ruth asks her if she has a plan to get rid of the lap dancer in Ben's apartment. Nancy says that she hasn't got that quite figured out yet, but she is working on it. Sara Ruth says that she thought Brad was going to be the problem, but when Camille told him to go away and leave her alone, he did.

Camille is getting ready to leave and there is a knock at the door. It is Brad and he has brought her some flowers for Valentine's Day. She invites him in and he tells her that the way they had left things the last time they spoke at the hospital....she interrupts him and tells him that that wasn't really any of her business and she shouldn't have said anything about Carly. He tells her that it is OK, she just wants him to be a better man. Brad tells Camille about Jack and Julia getting engaged and she says that they were meant to be together. He says just like you and Ben before I came along. She starts to talk again about Carly and Brad interrupts her and says that he and Carly are not sleeping together, he is only doing some work for her. He tells her that Carly is not over Jack, yet and Camille says that she better be, because Jack is going to marry Julia.

Sara Ruth is pacing the floor at the hospital. She is wondering what is keeping her daughter. She picks up the phone to call her and Camille comes walking in. Sara Ruth acts like she is there to ask her daughter to go to dinner with her. Camille says that she can't, she has to help with the Outreach Program. Nancy tells Camille that everything is set up in the examining room and Camille goes there, not knowing that Ben is in there. Sara Ruth, all happy with herself, goes for the door to leave and meets Denise coming in. Sara Ruth asks her what she wants and Denise walks past her to Nancy and says that she needs to see Ben in the worst way.

When Camille walks into the examining room and sees Ben, she says that there must have been a mix up. Ben tells her that he is filling in for one of the other doctors. Camille says that she should just leave and Ben asks her to stay. While Denise is demanding to see Ben, she hears Ben on the intercom and barges into the examining room where he and Camille are. She tells Ben that she is having another headache and he has the magic touch to make it go away. He has her sit on the examining table and starts to massage her head. Camille is trying to keep busy and out of the way. She goes to the trash to put something in it and sees that Ben has thrown away the pin of the Eiffel Tower that he had given to her when they were going to go Paris. Between seeing the memory in the trash and listening to Denise coo over Ben's massaging techniques, Camille can take no more and she runs out of the room. Her mother is still there and she asks Camille if she is going to let Hoochie steal Ben right out from under her. Camille tells her mother to stay out of it. Sara Ruth says that if she lets that happen, she is giving up. Camille says, "Good."

Ben gives Denise a prescription for her pain. Denise starts to question Ben about the woman that was in the room when she first came in. She asks Ben if that is the woman that hurt him. Ben tells her that he doesn't want to talk about it. Denise walks out of the room and sees Camille standing there and she tells her that they need to talk. Camille tells Denise that she is busy and doesn't have time to talk. Denise says that she is busy too, but she has something to say about Ben. She tells Camille that Ben is a nice guy and he works all the time to cover up the pain he is in. Denise tells Camille that Camille is the one that can help Ben and she is the one that he needs and she walks out of the hospital. Camille walks back into the examining room.

Emma has made some goodies for Jack and Julia including some hot buttered rum. They are at the pond setting everything up for Julia's surprise.

He goes to get his cell phone and he hears a motor running. He looks around and Julia is riding a garden tractor through the woods. He laughs with delight and asks her how did she know that is what he wanted. She says that she remembered from last summer. She asks him if he can top that for a surprise and he says, "Let me see what I can do." Jack gives Julia ice skates for her present. She loves them and says that he remembered when they were in New York that she wanted to go ice skating. He tells her to put them on. When she starts to put them on, she sees a ring hanging from the laces. Jack says, "Will you marry me?" She just looks at him smiling and he says, "Say yes!"

Carly has found the box with the candy heart that says, "be mine", that Jack had given her last year right after they had been held captive. She vows that by next Valentine's Day she and Jack will be together and she will make him forget that he ever met Julia Lindsay. Later, Carly is coddling Parker and telling him that he will never have to go through the things that she had to go through because he has money. She tells him that he has to be careful, there are people in the world that will want to use him for his money. Brad is standing in the door, listening to her. He says, "Yeah, Parker, you have to look out for the users." Carly turns and glares at him. She takes Parker upstairs. When she returns, Brad starts to talk about Jack and Julia. Carly tells Brad that Julia is doing something to Jack that he won't like. Brad warns her not to do anything before the wedding and she says, "What wedding?" Brad tells her that Jack and Julia are engaged. Carly doesn't believe what Brad is saying and she calls him a liar. She says that Jack and Julia haven't known each other long enough. Brad reminds her how fast she and Hal were married and then John. She wants to know if Jack told him that and he tells her that Emma told him. Carly gets mad at Brad, she thinks that he is not telling her the truth and she tries to get past him to leave. He grabs her and asks her where she thinks that she is going? He tells her that the only reason that she wants Jack so bad is because Julia has him. She starts to yell at Brad that Jack wants her and only her. Brad starts to laugh and that makes her more mad and she starts to throw things at him. He finally goes over to her and grabs her and makes her drop whatever she is holding. As he is restraining her, they look at each other and start to kiss, passionately.
