Sam and Catalina talk about how they are both outsiders as well. Catalina wonders what it would be like to be Marah for one day. Sam tells her that they can do it.

Danny says if none of them cooperate with Gus he can't get anything on them. Claire tells Danny Gus has been threatening her. Danny tells her to calm down; he isn't talking to Gus at all. Claire says that Gus told her that Danny tried to implicate her in Carmen's murder. Danny tells her that is a good idea but he hadn't thought of that. Claire is getting upset that Danny is talking more and just spits out that she knows he killed his mother the night Michelle disappeared from the hospital. She tells him that he has the most to lose so he should talk to her. Danny tells her she has a wild imagination and a reckless mouth. She continues on with Carmen conversation and Danny gets angry. He tells her he will not discuss his mother with her now or ever. He tells her that Gus doesn't know as much as he pretends to know and she should keep her mouth shut.

He tells her to try again; the clock on his deal is ticking.
Rick is sitting at a table waiting for Phillip when Harley comes in. She tells him that Phillip came in and cornered her about having dinner with them to try to get Rick to talk about what is bothering him. She asks the waitress for a lobster bib and attempts to put the bib on to hide her tummy. Rick is not happy and tells her that she should just ask Danny to pull out the roulette tables for her to hide behind. Harley stands up and tells Rick that maybe she should just stand exposed so that Phillip sees and Rick can explain how he slept with Phillip's ex wife and now she is having his baby. Rick tells her to sit down. She does and tells him that she just doesn't want to rush into telling Phillip. Phillip comes in and is surprised to see Harley already there. He asks her if she ran ever light in town. He left the station before her and she beat him there. He sits down and tells Rick that they wanted to come together to support him with his problems.

Rick says his house is bugged and under surveillance and he can't sneeze without the feds hearing. Phillip isn't buying and he tells Rick that Harley would never hurt him on purpose. Rick says he doesn't blame Harley for bugging the house. On top of everything else Michelle and Danny are being hounded to the point that they can't even walk outside with their baby. Phillip says this should be a happy time for Danny and Michelle but he wonders if Robbie isn't reminding Rick of what he doesn't have. Phillip says it makes sense that Rick feels bad about not having children. But he is sure that Rick will meet a woman who will give him children someday and those kids will be lucky to have him for a dad. Phillip says it is normal for Rick to feel this way and he should share his feelings with his friends. Harley thinks Rick is about to blow and she tells Phillip to leave Rick alone.

Blake pulls Ross away and tells him that he is making her nervous. Ross says Gus wants to get info from her about the Santos family. He has been investigating the Santos family for years. Blake is intrigued and thinks Gus may have information she can use for a sequel. Ross tells her there will be no sequel. Blake tells him that she has piles of fan mail asking about whatever happened to Selena's son. She has to know and write it in her next book. Ross is against it. He tells Blake there may be more danger if she wrote again. They are lucky no one was hurt more than they were. Blake says she learned from the last time and will cover her tracks next time.
