Abby explains that Max has work piling up and she wanted to give him a hand. Nick warns Abby that she should not spend so much time with Max, worried that she may get hurt. Abby confesses to Nick that she told Max about having a crush on him and to her surprise; he felt the same way also. However, he is with Mimi, and everything is okay. Nick goes on to beat himself up for what he did to Chelsea, and starts to think up ideas to make everything all right. He suggests that Abby and Max can find a connection for him to buy Chelsea a car.

Billie comes to Nick's defense telling Chelsea that the emails he sent where words from his heart, and that he wanted to tell her the truth. Chelsea agrees that he should have been honest with her. Billie asks Chelsea how she would have reacted if he had been honest with her. Chelsea does not have a response, and Billie thinks it is because she would have laughed at him, as she has done on numerous occasions. She goes further to tell Chelsea that she has always made fun of him and called him names. Chelsea asks Billie whose side she is on. Billie retaliates with the story of Cyrano de Bergerac and Roxanne, telling Chelsea it is somewhat romantic. Chelsea seems a bit annoyed with her mom. Billie tells Chelsea she has a right to be upset, but to get over it, give him a second chance, treat him the way she would want to be treated, and that Chelsea, of all people, knows what it is like not to get another chance.

Abby assures her that only her and Nick knew about the situation. Chelsea's phone rings, it is Dr. Rebert asking if she is still interested in the job, and he asks if she would like to come down for an interview. Chelsea tells him she will be right down.

Billie tells him, knowing her daughter the way she does, it will be awhile before she forgives him, and that awhile, could be a long time. Nick goes on and on about what he did, and Billie tells him that everyone makes mistakes, look at her; she slept with the person interested in her daughter. Nick takes his espresso and drinks it like it is a shot of the best tequila, burning his mouth in the process, and tries to calm it with a glass of water. He wonders what he can do to make this up to Chelsea. He tells Billie of Abby's idea, but thinks it could go either way, she could forgive him, or she could hate him more.
