Carly brushes past Rosanna, but Rosanna stops her and says, "It's no wonder you've never made anything out of yourself. You're obviously the same ungrateful, mean, little no-class piece of trash you've always been! The only reason you have any respectability in this town is because of me!" Jack comes over to try to break it up. Then Craig puts his foot in also. Carly tells Rosanna that the only reason she's offering to help is because she herself hasn't made anything of her own life.
