.Ellen and Kevin
Ellen visits Kevin at the Lighthouse for some professional advice. She confides in Kevin her Mardi Gras tale. She explains how Sebastian has very little time left and he wants to spend his remaining time on earth getting reacquainted with her. She feels as if she is stuck between a dying man and a man who understands why she cares. She has been having fantasies about Sebastian and feels that she is being unfaithful to Matt by dreaming about another man. Kevin tries to persuade Ellen that fantasizing is a normal part of life. He reminds her of how cautious she was before getting involved with Matt. He knows that she will be just as deliberate when it comes to Sebastian. That is where Ellen is most confused because part of her just wants to jump into Sebastian's arms without looking back.
Karen and Joe are in the dressing room, since they are going to portray the star-crossed lovers in Lucy's infomercial. Karen still can not find Joe's mothers ring. She also asked Joe about some sleezy catalog selling edible underwear that arrived in Joe's name. Of course Joe knew nothing about the catalog.
Frank enters the dressing room. Apparently, Joe left his pager at the Scanlon house so Frank was doing the brotherly thing and returning it. Karen asked Frank about the ring. Frank agreed to bring in a plumber to check the pipes. Karen leaves to go to her own dressing room to get dressed. Joe asked Frank if he has been getting any strange mail. He told Frank about the mail he has been receiving. He is concerned that Neal might see it. Frank assures Joe that he will check the mail very carefully. When Joe exits the dressing room, Frank borrows Joe's car keys and plants a pair of red panties under the drivers seat of the car.
DV arrives at the infomercial. Lucy fills him in on the outline of the romantic story. DV thinks that Lucy should change the hero to a photojournalist instead of a soldier. Lucy told him that it is too late. He wants the actors to improvise. However Lucy remains firm and refuses to change her story line that she has written. Lucy walks away.
DV asks Scotty about the design of the new dress. He is anxious to start the new line. Scotty fumbles for a reason to delay DV. He told him that Lucy is not happy with the neckline and wants to make a few adjustments.
Victor arrives dressed as an officer of the French Legion. He is to play an extra in the infomercial.
The infomercial describes two star-crossed lovers, one a French soldier and the other an Algerian woman who is considered to be an enemy because of her nationality. He risks betraying his country to warn her that his army will attack in the morning. So all that they have is this one last night together to share their love. Karen and Joe perform very well. Their love scene is genuine. At the end of the infomercial, Lucy gives the dress to Karen. Karen is so happy about receiving the dress that her and Joe make plans to go home and finish what they started during the infomercial.
Lucy, without realizing it, gets caught in a lie. DV asks Lucy when he will receive the designs for the new dress. Lucy falters for an answer. She told DV that she is unhappy with the waistline and wants to make a few altercations. DV asks her about the neckline, and Lucy says that she loves the neckline.
DV telephones an anonymous tip to the press. "The Serena line has been employee children in South East Asia to make the dresses.".
