Raul isn't interested in what he has to say. Ashley and Brad inform Billy that Jack's been dating Phyllis.

Brad suggested a trip to Chicago to Ashley in order to help get her mind off Jack and Phyllis. She loved the idea and they started making plans.

Paul shared his memories of Hawaii and Christine with Isabella. She proved to be a sympathetic ear. Paul's words were comforting to her as well.

Sean presented a plan for advertising on the Internet to Jack and Jill. After a lengthy discussion, Jill gave him permission to put some numbers together. Jack noticed Sean and Jill talking about plans for the evening. He told Jill that he would keep a close eye on their relationship -- just as she had on his relationship with Phyllis.

Billy and Mac talked at the coffee house about her trip to Hawaii. She seemed to be waiting for him to tell her not to bring J.T., but he kept his mouth shut. J.T. arrived and she told him that it was a go -- all he had to do was let his mom know and pick up his bags for the airport. Afterwards, Mac told Esther that she wasn't so sure about her decision. Esther told her that if she trusted him and she trusted herself, then there wouldn't be anything to worry about.

Mamie had stopped by the pool house to see if Raul was OK -- the room was dark and he seemed to be sleeping soundly, so she didn't wake him up. She called to tell Billy this and he told her to leave Raul sleeping. Billy and Rianna started discussing Raul's past behavior and symptoms, becoming increasingly worried about the fact that the doctor hadn't found anything when there must be something there. Brittany arrived ready for some attention from Billy -- she didn't get any because he and Rianna were looking for medical symptoms and diagnoses on the computer. They rushed off to the pool house when they found that all the clues pointed to Raul having Diabetes. Brittany planted a seed in J.T.'s mind -- he should try to pressure Mac into being more than just friends while they were away so that she would quit thinking about Billy altogether. This would be good for both of them, considering the fact that he was falling for Mac and she wanted Mac out of Billy's life for good.

When Billy and Rianna arrived at the pool house, Raul was still sleeping. They almost left again, saying that the doctor appointment wasn't scheduled for another 45 minutes. Then, Billy decided that it was important that he wake up. He tried to awaken Raul and realized that he was unconscious! He yelled for Rianna to call 911 and screamed for his friend to wake up. . . . .
