Eve and Kevin
Eve and Kevin are packing for their trip to Rome. Kevin needs to visit Julie to let her know about his trip and Eve has to pick up her check at the hospital. While at the hospital, Eve tries to convince Chris to tell her the truth about his so-called romance with Julie. Chris makes no attempt to bite the line. At the sanitarium, Julie is very upset that Kevin is leaving. She almost has a slip in her words. She almost said that she needed Kevin to help and get her out of here, but she quickly covered her tracks and said that she needed Kevin’s help to get better.
Later, on the airplane, a midget thinks that Eve is in the wrong seat. She politely points out the little man’s mistake. He sits several rows to the right of the two lovebirds. He pulls out several pictures of Eve and Kevin at the hospital. Meanwhile, Kevin and Eve, oblivious of the danger, are planning how to join the “miles high” club.
Scotty and Lucy
Scotty is having a real issue with trusting Lucy. Lucy tries to explain how she slept with DV. Scotty does not want to listen. He wants to know why she did not tell him. She tries to justify her actions by saying that she did not want to hurt him. He told her that he rather be hurt by the truth than by lies. He storms out. A little while later, he returns. Karen stops by and explains what has happened with Frank. Scotty asks her if all is well with Joe now that the truth is out. She explains that it is not because she did not trust him. Lucy gives her this long speech about how not to give up because real love is worth fighting for. Later, Scotty takes Lucy’s advice and tries to forgive her for her deception.
Frank, Joe, and Karen
At the hospital, Frank slowly rises after being knocked to the ground by the force of Joe’s punch. Frank tries to explain that it is all a misunderstanding, but two many coincidences are starting to add up. Joe receives a page from the pharmacy. Frank then tries to talk to Karen. She refuses to listen. She adds in the fact that she confided in him and thought he was her friend and the whole time he was scheming to break up her and Joe’s relationship.
Frank went to Courtney and tries to get her to help him convince Karen of his innocence. She is afraid of losing Joe. She wants no part in it. He threatens to tell Joe all if she does not help. Their conversation was halted when Neal came in.
At the Scanlon residence, Frank and Courtney make plans to keep Joe and Karen apart. Out back, Neil and Joe shoot hoops until Karen arrives to pick up Lark and Neil. Karen tries to get Joe to warm up to the idea of a reconciliation, but is intentionally interrupted by Courtney rushing Lark and Neil out to Karen's car. On the plane, Eve notices that they're being watched by a man in a trench coat and horn rimmed glasses. Courtney comforts Joe when he confides his feelings about Frank's betrayal and Karen's lack of trust. Karen arrives at the Recovery Room with Neil, Serena, and Lark and is angered when Frank appears to keep their "date" as if nothing had happened. Sending her charges off to watch 98 Degrees set up, she lets him have it and told him to get lost. Back on the plane Kevin doubts Eve's suspicions, so she saunters by the man and pauses behind him while he pulls out a syringe and tucks it into his coat pocket, then startles him by asking if he knows what time they're arriving in Rome. Joe gives Courtney some hands-on basketball pointers, then appears to hurt his shoulder when attempting a lay-up. 98 Degrees performs a practice number for Karen, Lark, Serena, Neil, and Frank who enthusiastically applaud. Karen tries to get out of going backstage to meet the band with Frank, is overruled by Lark and the kids, but manages to blow him off again. Eve pulls a pillow from the overhead compartment and turns around as Kevin grabs the syringe from the suspicious man's hand. Shocked, the man nervously explains that he's a pharmaceutical representative who recognized Dr. Lambert and just wanted to show her the latest development in syringes. Meanwhile, a dwarf sneaks over and sticks a listening device onto Eve's bag. When Kevin notices and asks what he's doing, he responds that he's looking for his pen which fell under their seats somewhere, picks it up, apologizes, and quickly leaves. Kevin jokes about their paranoia and comments that they should relax while the dwarf watches them intently. Shirtless and sporting an ice pack on his shoulder, Joe lets Courtney massage his pain away and move in for a kiss just as Karen arrives outside the front window with Lark and Neil. Seeing the intimate moment, Karen decides to leave and a concerned Lark went inside with Neil. Joe asks where Karen is and she assures him that Karen had her reasons for not coming in, staring pointedly at a smug Courtney. Frank approaches Karen yet again and she angrily told him to keep his revenge and lies to himself and leave her alone. Still en route, Eve suggests they tour Rome while they're there and wonders about Chris's sudden engagement until Kevin distracts her with some under-the-airline-blanket action. The dwarf places a call informing someone that the listening device has been planted and watches the oblivious lovers giggle under the blanket.
