Offering to help, Michael advised Diane that Jack's restraining order forced her and Kyle to remain in Genoa City. Jack approached Phyllis about raising a child.
Colleen headed to the front door to light up a joint when she heard Abby choking. Over dinner, Ashley suggested to Brad that they find a job for Colleen at Jabot. They were interrupted by a call from Colleen about Abby's choking spell. Brad and Ashley rushed home and found the paramedics examining the baby. They decided to take her to the hospital for an examination. In front of Ashley and Brad, Reese congratulated Colleen on performing the Heimlich maneuver to save Abby's life. However, Brad sensed that Colleen was feeling guilty.
In Kenya, Victoria commented to Neil about Nate losing another father with Malcolm's death. Neil vowed to remain there until he found his brother. Alex interrupted and blasted Neil for fighting with Malcolm earlier. Neil insisted he hadn't started the fight. She ordered him to leave, but Neil refused. Meanwhile, Olivia and Mamie wondered why Malcolm hadn't called lately.
Nikki remembered her days as a stripper and Victor's desire for her. Reminding him how he had saved her life by marrying her while she had been on her deathbed, Nikki asked Victor if they should continue with their relationship.
In a hotel room, Jack told Phyllis he already had a child. She lost it, thinking he'd gotten someone pregnant recently. Maybe he had planned it when he'd found out she couldn't have a baby. He explained it had happened over a year before, and he had just found out. She wanted to know everything -- immediately.
Jack confessed that the mother of his child was Diane Jenkins. He explained how the sperm theft had happened. Phyllis blamed Nikki for the switch. He told her it was just a coincidence. She wondered if Diane was just going to magically give her child to them.
Phyllis warned Jack not to even think of sharing custody with Diane. He thought he had a chance at full custody. They could raise Kyle on their own. It was not the ideal situation, but he was Jack's child. She pulled away from him and stormed out.
Diane vented to Michael in his office that she planned on blasting Jack for trying to take Kyle away from her. Michael strongly suggested that she not give Jack ammunition with which to attack her character in court. Michael would handle things -- legally. She tearfully begged him to tell her there wasn't a chance for Jack to take Kyle away; she had been a fantastic mother for over a year, but Michael couldn't make that promise.
Michael pointed out that Diane was the one who had started the whole chain of events by stealing the sample. What Nikki had done was irrelevant. She would not put Kyle in jeopardy. She had only one option, she declared. She would leave the country despite the court order. He reminded him that she would never be able to return to the United States.
Diane and Michael then noticed a man standing guard outside the office. Michael recognized him as one of Paul Williams' men. Jack had her under surveillance.
At the ranch, Victor wondered why Nikki was thinking back to their past. She was at a crossroads, she felt. He wondered what had happened to keeping things simple. She laughed at that, considering their history. She couldn't believe they couldn't keep it together even after the incredible second chance they'd gotten when she'd recovered from Sarah's attempt to kill her.
Nikki thought maybe she and Victor weren't meant to be, after all. Victor disagreed. He reminded her that the reason they weren't together was because of her. She felt that marriage to him wasn't enough. She didn't want to be in the position where she had to sit around, waiting for him to get home to fulfill her life. She'd known then that the attention he'd lavished on her in the hospital had been fleeting, as he would shift attention to work. She had searched for something for herself, and that had led to things falling apart for them.
Nikki said she thought she and Victor had grown apart. He didn't understand. He thought they could have a future. She made sure he understood that she liked who she had become and wouldn't change back. He told her that maybe he'd changed too. They kissed, and then, without a word, he left.
Everyone at the Chancellor house was getting ready for Jill's party. Larry and Amanda arrived. Amanda revealed that her daughter lived there. Katherine was surprised to see Amanda there as Larry's date. Larry was amazed Katherine remembered him from the ranch and around Jabot.
Amanda and Jill met and realized who they knew in common. Katherine was more than delighted at the awkward moment. Amanda told Jill that she was very impressed with Billy. Sean entered, and Jill tried to pull him away to talk, but he wasn't getting it. Jill served hors d'oeuvres and silently tipped Larry on how to eat them.
Esther whispered to Katherine that Larry looked shifty, but Katherine sternly instructed her to treat him with respect. Jill complimented Amanda on her dress, and Amanda explained that she'd made it herself. Jill tried to stall, hoping Billy would show up, but Sean told her they'd have him over another time, since he clearly wasn't attending. Larry calmed a nervous Amanda about the formal service by telling her to follow his lead.
At home, Brad tried to figure out how Abby could have choked. He found Ashley's button in the crib and realized Abby had pulled it off. They realized they were more to blame than Colleen. Later Brad told Ashley how Colleen still seemed upset about what had happened, despite his apology. Ashley thought Colleen's reaction was normal for a 14-year-old. Ashley was impressed by how Colleen had handled herself.
John learned of Abby's ordeal and how Colleen had saved her. They wondered how Abby could have gotten the button. Colleen flashed back to finding Abby choking because she had been distracted by the joint she had just rolled. Brad showed up and explained about the button. He apologized for thinking Colleen had been at fault. Later Colleen flushed the pot down the toilet.
Diane opened her apartment door and found a very angry Phyllis.
