She gets upset when Shawn whips "the can" out of his pocket and he hurriedly puts it back when Brady walks up. He proudly tells them about his scene with Roman at the cop shop and both Shawn and Belle tear into him for it. He tells them how Chloe showed up and was surprised she didn't belt out a chorus of Stand by Your Man.

Austin exercises in his apartment, remembering what Sami told him earlier. In her own apartment, Sami's changed and now with a wavy red hairdo, tie dye tank top and short skirt. She looks in the mirror and refers to it as the "Erin Brockavichy look.." Being she told Austin she's going to bed, she's got another "trashy" idea to get his attention. She pretends to trip in the hall with a bag of trash and yells OH SHOOT to get his attention. It worked as he rushed out (shirtless) to help. She invites him over for a root beer float. He accepts after he takes out her trash and showers. He arrives and Sami teases him, tells him it's okay, then after he gets all hot and bothered and falls to the couch kissing her, tells him to stop as the ice cream will melt.
She makes the floats as he recovers and suggests Sami let Will spend some time with Kate. ( Sami says no way! She clues Austin in that they'll have to structure their time together now that Lucas is not around and she has Will. He asks to take her out for a casual evening and she agrees, saying she'll get a neighbor to watch Will. He tells her that the staff where he's taking her will blow her away. At the diner, Kate and Faye chat. She tells Faye that she'll make Victor pay one day as Roman and the officer show up and sit down. Kate knows they're not big tippers, but will take their order. Kate grimaces as the cop orders a meat loaf dinner and when asked, recommends the BLT w/ fries instead. Both Roman and the other cop order that as the cop flirts with Kate, thinking she's hot for him after Kate leaves. Roman warns him Kate is hot all right, everything she touches burns and Sami found out the hard way. Kate delivers their coffee and asks Roman about Will and if Sami will let her see her grandson. After she leaves, the other cop asks Roman if he really is having a thing with Marlena. Roman dispatches the cop to a call they got after warning him that's how rumors get started.
Faye and Kate get into a little argument and Kate gets another pain when going to pick up an order. Sure enough, Austin takes Sami to the diner and outside, says she's okay with that as Brandon's mom works there and the fries are awesome. He gives her the spiel about being nice to less fortunate people as he takes her in to see Kate at work. Sami walks up and yells to Kate to go girl and sling that hash, giving a wicked cackle after saying it. Both Austin and Roman are taken by surprise as they witness this.

Jennifer is packing the last of JT's diaper bags, when the doorbell rings, and there is Gran, bringing a plate of donuts for Bo and Hope. Jen explains why she is there, and before you know it, the two are drinking tea, scarfing down the donuts and talking about Jack. Jen later comes out with another tea tray.....then decides she needs decaf and goes to make some. This girl must be on a real sugar high, as she is very wound up.
Meanwhile, Jack is nervously pacing, waiting for Jen to come home. He calls her, and she tells him she will be home when she is ready. Jack gets bored and decided to call the Princess.

She insists on Kate waiting on her, promising a quarter tip. She puts her witch cackle to good use, as then both Roman and Austin tell her that is enough. But she is not through. Austin leaves, Roman follows. Outside they argue, with Roman rehashing all Sami has gone thru, defending her right to let Kate have it. Austin lamely tries to defend his mom, and mentions Sami being forgiven for all her misdeeds, so should have some compassion herself and put stuff behind her. Roman continues to more or less pat Sami on the back, and tells Austin to either accept her, or just get out of her way.
Inside, Sami continues making a scene, telling the entire diner how far down Kate has come. Kate ignores her and Fayeoffers to get rid of her, but Kate says no. Sami orders a piece of pie, and a large plate of crow for Kate to eat. Kate gets a bad pain and goes to the ladies room. Sami follows her in, locks the door and they really verbally go at it.

Sami gives Kate hell about her drunken son, her framing Sami for Franco's death, and Sami's time on death row, including the needle in the arm. Kate accuses her of using Will for revenge, and Sami talks about marrying Austin.
Kate says it will only be a marriage of 5 minutes, before Austin throws her out. Kate is in obvious pain, but holding her own here, and Sami remembers her at the hospital (when she collapsed bleeding and Sami just stepped over her) and asks sarcastically if Kate is sick. Kate demands she leave, and finally Sami unlocks the door. Kate tells her to remember this day, and Sami says she will never forget it. Kate tells her, good...cause the day is coming when I will be on top, looking down on you and remembering this, too. Sami SPITS in Kate's face! (and you can see the spittle flying) Sami goes out, and see her daddy, and is all sugar and spice, and Roman is the loving dad. She says she may need a ride home, but goes outside to see if Austin is around. Well, ol' Duhboy is there, and completely caves in, evidently forgiving Sami for how she treated his mother, as he tells her to get in the car.
