Burgess wondered where Eve was. Frank guided Julie in starting an IV. Julie accepted Frank's invitation for dinner. Burgess ordered Chris and Jake to help Matt with the drunk patient. Matt was determined to complete the examination. He prevented them from helping. Matt succeeded but an angry Burgess confronted Matt about endangering his patient. Matt then claimed Burgess only sees his wheelchair and not his capability as a doctor. Matt stated that he did not want any special treatment. Frank questioned Joe for being at the hospital. In a heated discussion that moved to the supply closet, Joe told Frank to mind his own business. Karen almost caught Chris changing the schedule, which meant that Julie was no longer free and has to cancel her date with Frank. Burgess found out that Eve left the hospital. Julie unsuccessfully tried to cover up for Eve. Joe offered Eve the basement apartment not knowing Frank already promised it to Julie. Meanwhile at the lighthouse, Eve treated Scotty. She asked about Serena and he shared his frustration about the investigation's slow pace. Lucy entered. Eve wrapped her arms around Scotty and kissed him. Lucy apologized for interrupting -- sarcastically. After Eve left, Lucy asked Scotty what was going on. Scotty explained that Eve was only a friend. Mac arrived with the some news. The car that hit Scotty was used by the same people who picked up Serena. After Mac left, Lucy and Scotty shared some special moments about Serena and Dominique. Scotty answered the phone and heard Serena's voice.

Julie and Frank are in her new apartment at the Scanlon's. Franks gives her the phone, thinking that she might want to call her parents and tell them about her first day as an intern.

Scott gets a phone call. It's Serena. All Scott hears in "Daddy is that you? Why didn't you come and get me?" before the caller hangs up. Scott freaks out. Lucy tries to convince him that the call is a good sign; it means that Serena is alive and well. Scott thinks there was something strange about the call; he suspects it was a tape of his daughter's voice. Kevin shows up and agrees with Lucy: the call was a good sign.

Back at the Scanlon's, Julie told Frank that she couldn't call her parents even if she wanted to--which she insisted that she did. But her family went on their annual camping trip without her. She told Frank that her dad is a plumber, but almost screws up when she reminisces about her pop driving them crazy with the latin names of all the shrubs. Frank is amazed--a plumber who knows Latin? Julie laughs it off saying that she has a crazy family. Julie insists that she owes Frank a dinner for saving her with the IV thing; they agree on Chinese food and Frank goes upstairs to get some beer. Julie yells upstairs, "But I don't like beer!"

Jake and Danielle are kissing up a storm in the intern's lounge. Eve is upset and told them to take it to the gutter. Jake defends Danielle and tells Eve to apologize. Danielle insists that it's okay. Eve apologizes in her wonderfully snotty way. Danielle told Jake that she's used to be treated terribly; she's in show business, remember? They try to plan a date but Jake is on a 36 hour (!) shift. Danielle can't stick around either; she has to get to work. Jake asks for the number there but she won't give it to him; she says that her new job frowns on personal phone calls. Jake want to know if her new job is really the thing for her.

Meanwhile, Chris is demanding an explanation from Eve. Why was she going through his locker? Eve explains that the after night of the abduction, one of the files that Greg Cooper was waving around was missing. Chris was the last intern to leave the area. Eve also remembered that the only person Greg didn't mention in his crazed tirade was Julie Morris. Guess what? That's the file that is missing. Eve is positive that Chris knows more about Julie than he is letting on. Chris plays dumb. Eve told him she's going to find out what he's hiding. She leaves for the Scanlon's to move into her new apartment.

Julie and Frank are mutually admiring each other. Julie asks Frank if he ever considered becoming a doctor. He hems and haws and finally admits that yes, he was actually enrolled at one time, but then his father died and he came home to take care of his family. Frank asks Julie more about herself, like why she doesn't drink. She claims she hates to be out of control. She starts to tell him something else, but then the Chinese food delivery person shows up.

Kevin tries to console Scott by telling him that since the kidnapper contacted Scott, it means that Serena won't be harmed. She's the kidnapper's insurance that Scott will give him what he wants. By making contact, the kidnapper is ready to begin negotiations. The police confirm that the call was a tape of Serena's voice and that it came from somewhere in Port Charles. Scott asks the police to play and replay the tape of his daughter's voice.

As Julie and Frank are enjoying their dinner they are rudely interrupted by a suitcase tumbling down the stairs. Eve soon follows, demanding to know what Julie and Frank are doing in "her" apartment. She even has a notarized lease. Julie says no problem, she was there first and she's not moving out. The bicker back and forth (for some reason Eve thinks Julie is fat) until Frank has had enough. He suggests that they both save some money by sharing the apartment.

Chris comes running into the intern's lounge, waking up Jake. He told a groggy Jake he's a little irked that a baby puked on him. What a guy. Chris leaves to take a shower. Jake gets up and went to his locker, where he contemplates a lovely glamour shot of Danielle.

Speaking of Danielle... She is talking to Rex, expressing her concern that this kidnapping of Serena has gone on too long. Rex assures her that they have moved on to the next level of the game.

As Scott gets off the phone with Lee, a note from the kidnappers arrives.
