Kurt asks Katherine to dinner where they run into Ashley and Hope having dinner. They of course join them and then Kurt asks Ashley to dance.

Nick makes the news even better when he tells Sharon that Doris has agreed to go with them. Meanwhile, Doris is telling Nikki and Victor the same thing. Nikki can't believe that Doris could agree to such a thing! Nikki, don't you remember how we talked about not trying to run our children's lives? (Of course Nikki doesn't remember!) Later, Nikki tells Victor he can do what he wants, but she is not going to let this family be torn apart......

Nina whines to Chris about wanting to get Phillip back. Nina calls Phillip while there (on speakerphone) and Phillip hangs up on her. Nina leaves, not wanting help from anyone. Of course, this is after a good speech from Chris about how Nina needs to 'get it together'. Later, Chris tells Paul about it and tries to reach Ryan. Who, by the way, is giving Trish a marketing lesson at Jabot, but they're not in his office. (Although it looks like Trish wants more than information from Ryan.)
Grace and Tony talk to Mildred who says the decision isn't her's. It is up to Cassie; if she wants to go with them.
Ryan laughs for the first time in a long time with Trish. Then his day is ruined when he is summoned to Chris's office to talk about Nina. Nina shows up later, just as Chris is going to leave. I've finally made a decision Chris, I need help. Maybe you could recommend someone?
Nikki beats Victoria up about not being there for Nicholas. Victoria says thanks Mom, for making me feel so welcome. You and Cole have just made me so happy to be home. (She talks like the old Victoria, but she is going to be hard to get used to.)
Cassie decides to go with Grace and Tony (although I don't think she even knows their names!). Mildred asks Grace to call and let her know how Cassie is doing. You don't have to tell me where you are or let me talk to Cassie. I just want to know that she is happy. (Now who in their right mind would just send their grandchild, adopted or not, with strangers and then not want to know where they are going!) Cassie packs and they are ready to go. Meanwhile......Noah is being taken off the respirator. He seems to be fine (even has gained a *lot* of weight by the looks of it) breathing and crying mostly. Nicholas, these are our baby's first real breaths on his own. Oh how precious life is. Every baby is a gift from God.
Jack tells Victor of his finalized plans for his offer to Nicholas. Victor tells Jack he is wasting his time. Nick has a job in Seattle. Jack is going to try anyway. Victor isn't as curt as usual with Jack because he was flashing back to his dinner with Diane just before Jack arrived. Jack wonders where the Black Knight's good mood came from as he returns to his office to find Diane with legs bared on his desk. A little banter, suck face and then they leave.
