Josie told Amanda that Cameron loves her and she was driving him away. Josie tries to explain what happened in Boca Lynda and says if she cannot forgive Cameron for what happened then she was a fool. Amanda says that they make a very convincing argument, but now she knows that they have been doing it for the months. Josie starts laughing and Cameron told Amanda that he loves only her. Amanda says she knows what she saw before Josie and Cameron went to Boca Lynda and that Gary saw it to. Josie panics, but Amanda says that she kept Josie's secret. However, Amanda says that Gary suspected them of having an affair. Amanda told Josie that all those times she warned her to stay away from Cameron it was really about jealousy. Cameron and Josie try to explain everything again but Amanda wants to know why Josie and Cameron did not stop making love when they figured out that they were not dreaming.
Vicki starts pounding on Marley's door and asks to be let in. Jake wants to let her in and tell her the truth, but Marley says Vicki cannot know and swears Jake to secrecy. Marley lets Vicki in and Marley sees the mess and asks what was going on. Marley says she freaked out and it was all Jake's fault. Marley says that did not come out right, Jake was not here when it happened. Marley says that Jake has been trying to convince her into having her final plastic surgery and she finally decided to do it. Marley says she was making a special dinner to psyche herself up for the surgery, but she was scared about going back to the hospital and freaked out. Marley says she called Jake at a meeting and he came he to help her calm down. Vicki says she understands and says she has had panic attacks too. Jake does not say anything, which arouses Vicki's suspicions and she asks what was really going on. Marley says she just did not want her to find out about the dishes from Jake. Vicki says that perhaps she should talk to a professional. Marley says her sister was right and she should do just that. Marley told Jake and Vicki that they can go, so they do. Marley chuckles that Vicki thinks she has become some poor little thing, but just she wait.
Vicki and Jake go home and Vicki told Jake that she has to tell him something. Vicki told Jake that they are not pregnant. Jake says that they are just starting out and there will be more chances. Vicki and Jake are kissing and Jake wants to go upstairs. Vicki says that she heard about a thing that the Chinese believe in called "fen-chi." There was a "fertility chi" and she would like to find it in their house because it may increase their ability to make a baby. They decide that the "chi" was in the kitchen.
Marley went to see Tyrone at The Lucky Lady. Tyrone apologizes to Marley for giving her bad advice. Marley says that she has been feeling like a loser, but that everything was going to change. Tyrone told her that she will get what she wants. Marley says that she has decided to have her plastic surgery finished and that then she will be a force to be reckoned with. Marley told Tyrone that the night was not a total loss because "the man that she loves" admitted that he hurt her and she can tell that he still cares about her. Etta Mae brought the bottle of champagne that Marley ordered and complains about a drunk at a back table. Marley says that she would like to feel the fresh air on her face while they sip champagne. Tyrone says that if Marley can find the first star that she saw when they went outside that she should make a wish. Etta Mae comes out and asks Tyrone to play bouncer and get rid of the drunk. "Marney" shows up in a mirror that was in the trash and makes fun of Marley for wanting to celebrate. "Marney" told Marley that Jake does not love her, that he pities her instead. "Marney" says that Marley will never have Jake. Marley gets mad and says that no one will stop her, not Vicki and certainly not "Marney." Marley throws her champagne glass at the mirror and went back into The Lucky Lady.
Marley went to the cemetery with flowers for Michael's grave. She says that she was there to talk to Michael because he always has all the answers.
Cindy went to see Gary at the hospital, but Bruno catches her. Cindy says she just came to see Dr. Perkins, so Bruno says he will take her to Perkins. Meanwhile, Gary wonders what Cindy was up to. Cindy manages to drug Bruno and went to see Gary and told him about the evidence she hid in the dog. Gary asks Cindy to hand over the dog, but Cindy says Grant gave it to Kirk, who took it to Italy. Gary told Cindy she will help her find the proof.
Josie and Cameron agree never to tell Gary what happened between them in Boca Lynda. Josie says that she will never be able to forgive herself for what she did. Josie asks Cameron to leave and he says that he will call her in the morning.
Bruno went into Gary's room looking for Cyndi. Bruno does not see Cyndi because she was dressed as a nurse and appears to be doing something with Gary's IV.
Vicki told Jake that after Marley has the plastic surgery that everything will fall into place. Jake asks how Marley's accident has affected Vicki. Vicki says that it was weird. It was like looking in a mirror and seeing someone else's face looking back. Jake wants to know about their psychic link (the twin connection). Vicki says that it was still there, she can tell that Marley was still in a lot of pain.
Marley, still talking to Michael, says that Vicki has always been after Jake. Vicki told Marley to hate Jake after he raped her and then Marley went off to China and left the two of them alone together. Marley says that she knows exactly what she has to do.
Cyndi was still in Gary's room, wearing the nurse's uniform, when he wakes up. Cyndi says that she stayed because she needed to thank him for believing and helping her. Gary's telephone rings and Cyndi offers to answer it. It was an angry Josie. Cyndi says that she was just telling Gary thank you for helping her and told Josie how lucky she was to have Gary. Josie agrees, with tears in her eyes, that she was very lucky.
Amanda was sitting alone in the park.
Jake, still in his robe, sneaks downstairs, takes the cordless telephone outside, and calls Marley. Marley, of course, was delighted that he has called. Jake says of course he called, he still cares about her. Vicki comes downstairs looking for Jake and hears him say, "I didn't say a word to Vicki."

At Carlino's, Joe overheard Nick confiding in Chris about Remy and her
mysterious past. Joe insisted they fill him in on what they know about her
since she was working in his restaurant. Joe said if they didn't find out what
Remy was up to then he would. Nick convinced Joe and Chris that he would get
to the bottom of the situation.
Nick tried to talk to Remy while they were at Carlino's. Paulina approached
them and asked if they could babysit for Dante since his usual sitter was
sick. They joyfully agreed. Nick suggested the park. He thought that would
be a perfect place to talk to Remy.
Once they got to the park, Nick suggested playing a game. The object of the
game was to ask questions of the other person regarding their personal life.
Remy fell for it! She asked the first question. When it was Nick's turn, she
tried to change the subject and switch games. Nick asked her why she avoids
talking about her past. Remy got very defensive and left to take Dante home.
Once Remy arrived at Paulina and Joe's, she started looking through a photo
album of Paulina and Dante. She took one of the pictures out and took it with
her. Joe walked in and questioned what she was doing. She apologized if he
thought she was invading their privacy. Paulina came home and thanked Remy
for bringing Dante home. Remy left but listened to what Joe and Paulina were
talking about. Joe expressed his distrust towards Remy. Paulina defended
her. Remy walked away smiling.
Sofia ripped up the invitation that she thought Lila sent her. Sofia asked
Joe's advice on how she could get Lila out of her life. Joe suggested that
the best way would be to bury the hatchet and make Lila her new best friend.
When Sofia arrived at the studio to follow through with Lila's invitation, she
was surprised to see Matt their instead. The invitation was from him. Once
again, the happy couple pledged their love.
Chris went to see Etta Mae and Toni at the club. They were joking around
about the articles in the Herald written by the Love Lady until Chris made a
remark that Toni was like "one of the guys." Toni got offended and left.
Later, Toni decided to follow the Love Lady's advice to see if she's right.
Lila wanted new baby furniture. Matt tried to tell her that the Corys are
broke, but she refused to believe him. He told her there was baby furniture
in the attic. She said she didn't want hand-me-downs for her baby. He told
her to think of it as heirlooms. Lila apologized for sounding selfish and
offered to help in any way. Matt assured her that there was nothing for her
to do except to take care of their unborn baby.
When Matt left, Lila started looking around the room at the expensive
decorative pieces in the house. Just as she held up a burgundy, pink floral
vase, Rachel entered the room. Lila was startled and dropped the vase.
Luckily, she caught it before it hit the floor. Rachel quickly and carefully
grabbed the vase away from Lila and informed her that this vase was the finest
of its kind. Lila asked Rachel what its value is. "Priceless," Rachel
declared. "It has been around for centuries and has survived decades in this
house. And since you've been here, it's been in danger of being destroyed."
She told Lila to think of the house as if it were a gallery and admire
everything from afar.
Cass stopped by the Cory Mansion to drop off papers Rachel needed. When
Rachel left for her meeting, Lila told Cass that she didn't understand why the
Corys were crying poverty when they have so much priceless artwork around the
house. She then told Cass that she was going to solve the Cory financial
problem no matter what they think of her. Then the Corys will be indebted to
her forever. Cass demanded to know what her plan was. She wouldn't tell him.
She just went over to the phone, called someone, asked them if they make
housecalls, and introduced herself as Mrs. Matthew Cory.
When the doorbell rang, Lila made Cass leave. Cass still wondered what she up
to. A man and woman from an art gallery came in describing their enthusiasm
towards purchasing the artwork from Mac Cory's collection. They looked around
with great pleasure. Lila assured them that Rachel entrusted her to the
entire collection and to sell whatever the gallery was willing to buy. Just
as Lila was ready to make a deal, Cass re-entered the house and put a stop to
it. He told the interested buyers that they were already in negotiations with
another potential buyer. The art dealers offered to double it if necessary
and left. Once they were gone, Cass tried to make Lila realize that what she
did was stupid. Just then Rachel arrived home. She met the art dealers in
the driveway. Rachel told Lila to pack her bags and get out.
Lila yelled at Rachel because she was not appreciative of her for trying to
help. Rachel was disgusted that Lila was trying to sell the artwork until
Lila showed her what the art dealers were offering. Rachel considered it for
a split-second. She quickly realized though that she couldn't sell the
painting because it represented her life with Mac and Carl. She thanked Lila
before leaving the room. Lila assured Cass that she will create a place for
herself in the Cory family.

Jake implies that if Vicki knew the truth that it would hurt her. Jake admits that there was a secret. Vicki continues to pry. Jake finally says that he can't tell her.

Gary reassures Rachel that the money will be found and says that he will send a man over to Cory Publishing to help her. Rachel leaves as Cameron returned in. Before Gary will tell Cameron anything, he wants to know what it was that Amanda thinks that he should know.
Rachel arrives at Cory Publishing; the air conditioner was broken. Amanda called to have the air conditioner fixed, but they require a certified check to begin work. There are no funds for the certified check, so the air conditioner will not be fixed. Amanda says that she still does not want to talk about what was wrong.
Cameron says that there was no point in keeping it a secret. Cameron and Amanda are not getting along. Cameron says that it was the commitment thing. Gary told Cameron that Amanda was the best person that he has ever gone out with and not to let her get away. Gary told Cameron that he has something for him to do.

Marley apologizes for making Jake keep it a secret. Vicki says that she cannot understand why Jake kept that a secret from her. Vicki does not want Marley to push her away.

Matt promises Sofia that they will always be together.
Cass and Lila watch Charlie play soccer and both agree that she was very good. Lila talks about how life has taught her to always work to get what she wants and never to give up. Cass says that sometimes you need to give up, just like in poker, know when to hold and know when to fold.

Friday, September 18, 1998
Charlie, Cass and Lila spend time together in the park. Cass still
wants Lila to back off from trying to marry Matt, especially after they
saw Matt and Sofia together, but she was still determined to do it. When
Lila sees Felicia in the park, she tries to make a hasty exit, but
Felicia stops her.
Paulina tries to warn Sofia that it may not be as easy to get away from
Lila as she and Matt seem to think, and told her she knows what it's
like to be hurt.
Remy was cutting the picture she took from Paulina, but Joe catches her
and demands to know why she was doing it.
Amanda agrees to work with Cameron to get the Cory money back, but she
says it will be strictly business, and for the time being, she will put
her feelings about what happened between Cameron and Josie in Boca Linda
Felicia heard Cass and Lila talking about a bet and demands that Lila
tell her about it. Lila tries to get out of answering, but eventually
tells her that Cass bet her $100,000 that she couldn't get Matt to marry
her before the baby was born.
Sofia told Paulina about the great day she had with Matt, but Paulina
still tries to tell her that since Lila was the mother of Matt's baby,
they can never get Lila out of the picture. Sofia refuses to believe
Remy claims that Paulina gave her the picture, but Joe won't believe her
and eventually gets her to admit that she took it. He sees she's hiding
something in her hand and demands to see what it is. It's a locket, and
Remy swears she didn't steal it. She says it's her mother's and it's
all that she has left of her.
Zak went to the Cory mansion looking for Matt, but finds Rachel instead.
He notices one of the paintings that she intends to sell and comments on
it. Rachel was impressed that he knows the painting. She told him that
it might be sold soon, but that the art market isn't very good right
now. He told her that with a painting of that caliber, once word gets
out that it's available, there will definitely be interest in it from
Cameron and Amanda work at getting the money back, but Cameron was
distracted by his feelings for Amanda. She suggests that maybe all the
money wasn't in Boca Linda, then realizes Cameron was staring at her but
not really listening. She gets upset, but then Cameron spots something
she missed that may help them get the money back.
Felicia keeps asking Lila about the bet. Lila fills her in on all the
details. Felicia says the bet was insane. Lila was still angry that
Felicia stalled her wedding long enough for it to be stopped. Felicia
tells her Cass made her do it. Lila tries to claim that as proof that
Cass doesn't care about her. Felicia insists that he does, he just
can't face his feelings and Lila can't face her feelings either.
Felicia told Lila she won't let her break Cass's heart.
Remy told Joe she wanted to put Paulina's and Dante's pictures in the
locket. He softens up on her because she was crying and tries to give
her back the picture. Paulina arrives and asks what's going on.
Zak calls someone saying "this could be our way in" and told the person
to contact Rachel. He says he'll cover the other side of the road, he's
going to visit Sofia.
Rachel gets a call; it's an inquiry about that painting. The person
claims to be from a gallery called the Lumina Foundation. Rachel has
never heard of them, but says she will consider all offers.
Sofia fantasizes about life with Matt, while wearing only a towel. She
has an imaginary conversation with Lila. Lila intimidates her, and
Sofia told her to go away, as Matt knocks on the door. "Lila" put some
doubt in Sofia's mind, but Matt kisses her when he sees her in, and then
out of, her towel.
The lead Cameron found didn't work, and Amanda gets frustrated. The air
conditioner was broken, so it's very hot in the office and there's
tension between the two. There's attraction as well. Amanda worries
that they'll never find the money, but Cameron told her not to give up.
She complains about the heat, and Cameron puts some ice on her neck and
asks "does this help?" He tries to get close to her, but she pulls
away. She told him she thought he was different from the other men in
her past. He says he's not perfect, but he does love her. She says she
wishes that was enough, but it's not.
Lila says she's not capable of breaking Cass's heart. Felicia says she
is and asks her to call off the bet. Lila refuses. Felicia says that
Cass lost the love of his life, and if Lila hurts him, she'll have to
answer to Felicia for it.
Paulina gets filled in and Joe apologizes for coming down so hard on
Remy. Paulina forgives Remy for cutting the picture and Remy gives her
a great big hug.
Zak shows up at Sofia's and told Matt that Rachel needs to see him
right away. Matt told Sofia he has to leave. Zak stays though, and
gives Sofia good news about Billy Rush being on the top playlists. She
thanks Zak, but then says, "don't do this again."
Felicia told Cass that she spoke to Lila and that it's obvious that she
cares about him. She told him that just because he denies his feelings
doesn't mean they aren't there. He gets defensive, and told her to
stop telling him how he feels and just butt out. But Felicia just
smiles at his reaction.
Rachel told Matt she's trying to sell the art collection and that it
was Lila's idea. She told Lila that if this buys her more time she'll
be very grateful. Matt told Lila it was a good idea and that he's
Amanda visits Gary. He asks how she and Cameron are doing finding the
money. She told him she doesn't think they can work together. Gary
encourages her to work things out with Cameron, that it can be a new
beginning. She says, "or the end of everything" as Cameron walks into
the room. "What do you mean, end?" Gary asks.
Felicia says if Cass wants to be alone, that's fine with her. She told
him he's so in denial of his feelings for Lila he's willing to pay her
to marry Matt. Cass agrees to tell Lila the bet was off.
Lila told her baby that if the art deal works, Matt will be so grateful
that he'll want to marry her. And, as a bonus, they'll have the
$100,000 from Cass. Then they'll have a wonderful life, the baby will
be a Cory and so will she.
Sofia asks Zak why he didn't show the playlists to Matt. Zak makes
excuses about the fact that Matt had to leave, but Sofia points out that
Zak told him he had to go. She told Zak that she and Matt are a team
and that they call the shots together.
Amanda says she just meant it could be the end of all their troubles.
Cameron takes Amanda out to the hall and reminds her that she agreed not
to tell Gary about him and Josie. He's not perfect, he says. All he
can do was love her, and if that isn't enough, then there's nothing else
he can do.
