Erica asks Sheila if she has given any more thought about her offer to stay. Sheila tells her that she has decided to stick around. Erica is ecstatic and gives Sheila a hug. Erica leaves to go to work at the Forrester's and Sheila is looking at articles about Amber and the Forresters, thinking if she can only get rid of Amber, then Erica would be free to be with Rick. She also flashes back at how she gave Amber the life she has right now, if not for her she would not be a Forrester. Meanwhile a very jumpy Amber calls Ziggy and asks him to meet her. Rick asks whom she was speaking to, but she lies and tells him it was work. Rick tells her that he will give her a ride to work, but Little Eric comes running down and distracts Rick and Amber rushes out the door saying she has an errand to run. Rick is a bit dumbfounded and Erica arrives and asks him what is the matter. He tells her that he hasn't slept much and is just worried about Amber. Erica is torn up that Amber is treating Rick so badly and wants to get to the bottom of it. Later on, Amber shows up at Ziggy's wondering where he could be. He shows up and Amber asks him if he has got what she needs. He pulls out her pills, but stops her and tells her that they need to talk. "I know who you are", he states. Amber assumes that he is going to blackmail her, but he insists he only wants to help her. "I am not a drug dealer, I am just a guy with connections", he says. He tells her that he doesn't want to see her get messed up in all this and how it will only make her life worse. Amber yells that she doesn't want his two cents just take the money and go. While all this is going on, Sheila hears Amber's voice from her apartment and wonders what she is up to. Amber gives Ziggy the money and runs off. Sheila then asks Ziggy into her apartment and begins to question him about Amber.

She then revealed that she is a drug addict and in need of help. Amber again became hysterical and said she's better off dead. Amber felt she had failed Rick because both of her babies had died. Amber demanded that Taylor give her a pill-now!

Meanwhile, Rick asked Erica to stay overnight at his house to babysit for Little Eric. Rick felt it was best that she stayed, in case he had to go out and pick up Amber in the middle of the night. Rick told Brooke and Rick that Amber is addicted to pills.

Erica went to her apartment to pick up some clothes she would be needing while staying overnight at Rick's. Sheila said all rotten things to Erica about Amber.

Also, because Erica is young, beautiful and has class, she is the perfect match for Rick. Sheila told Erica she can have Rick if she wants him. Erica nixed what Sheila was saying about Rick at first. Erica assumed that Rick is out of her league and married, therefore not attainable. Erica also would not want to be a home wrecker.

Thorne, Eric and Stephanie also give her their love and encourage her to believe that she doesn't have to fight her battles by herself. Erica has been asked by Rick to spend the night in the house with Little Eric because he's going to drive Amber to rehab. Sheila sees this as the beginning of Amber going out and Erica coming "moving in." Erica keeps reminding her mother of how much Rick loves and protects Amber.
