In Jack's office, Ted the private investigator informed Jack that Phyllis had indeed visited Diane at her hotel room, twice. Phyllis admitted that she had visited Diane. After dismissing Ted, Jack asked Phyllis what she had been doing there. Phyllis responded that she had gone to see Diane to find some common ground, since Diane might well become a part of their lives. Phyllis told Jack that she had tried to convince Diane that Kyle should be the most important consideration for everyone involved.
Phyllis also told Jack that her perspective was very different, considering her past, and that they should plan for every possibility. Jack told Phyllis that he was touched that she would do that for him and that he was not mad at her. However, Jack made her promise not to see Diane again for any reason. Phyllis stated that it was one promise she could keep and that if she never saw Diane again, it would be too soon.

Isabella noted that Diane had to have known the father before and that she still had feelings for him.

Diane stated that she didn't think that she would be able to remain friends with him after the trial was over. Isabella asked Diane if Michael knew about her feelings for the baby's father.

Victoria dropped by Victor's office and asked about him and Nikki. She offered to rebook the private dining room for them, but Victor declined. Victor showed Nikki's "Nautical Adventure" invitation to Victoria. When Nikki called unexpectedly to cancel dinner, Victor appeared relieved. When Victoria protested the turn of events, Victor indicated that it might be for the best.
After Victoria left, Victor took the engagement ring from his pocket and looked at it reflectively. He flashed back to Hope and a time when Hope had been contemplating taking Victor Jr. and leaving. In the flashback, Hope indicated that the problem between them was that they had "quit being important to one another." Back to reality, Victor wondered why he was thinking of Hope and asked, "What is the matter with me?"
Nikki was working in the Jabot boardroom when Katherine stopped by. Katherine said that the music collection on the yacht was lacking, and when she had "happened" to be at a music store, she had picked up some CDs. Katherine gave them to Nikki. Nikki was agitated at Victor's lack of enthusiasm for her invitation.
Suddenly, the phone rang, and Nikki found that she had to work late. She called Victor to cancel their date. Afterwards, she remarked to Katherine that Victor had sounded relieved by the cancellation, and she thought that perhaps it was for the best. Katherine wondered if it was "eye for an eye."
At the Jabot lab, Brad and Ashley discussed getting Colleen to babysit Abby. Brad expressed continued frustration at his role as the no-authority father. Ashley indicated that Colleen was making great progress and needed more freedom, since she'd earned it. She suggested that Colleen could help her with efforts for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ashley called Colleen and arranged to meet her at the school.
At Colleen's locker at Walnut Grove, J.T. confronted Colleen about her pot use. When she thought that he was going to rat her out to Billy, she broke down into tears. Suddenly uncomfortable, J.T. ushered her into the computer lab. She confessed the incident of Abby's choking to J.T. and said that she had gotten rid of the pot. He told her that she seemed to have learned her lesson and that he wouldn't tell anybody, but he added that she shouldn't confess it to her family, since it would only make things worse for her. Suddenly, her cell phone rang. Ashley told Colleen that she and Brad wished to go to the school and talk to her right away.
After hanging up, Colleen thanked J.T., and he became even more uncomfortable then left. Later, Brad and Ashley arrived. They assured Colleen that they trusted her to babysit Abby and offered for Colleen to help Ashley with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They told Colleen that, "we've all learned our lesson, and it's time to move on." Colleen was excited about babysitting and agreed to work with Ashley on Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but she had to get to work at the theater.
Raul found Brittany studying her lines backstage. Raul thought she was avoiding him because of the kiss, but Brittany said that she had already forgotten about it. Raul offered to run lines with her. The lines from the scene had an obvious double meaning for both of them. Suddenly, Mackenzie walked in. Raul said that she needed to be cheered up. Brittany said that she needed to go over her lines.
When Mackenzie approached, Brittany went off to the other side of the stage. Raul comforted Mackenzie. She thanked him for always being there, and she left. Raul went over to Brittany and offered to finish reading lines with her. She dismissively told him that she had already learned them. She went on to state that she was tired of his not believing her about people's true motivations and intentions. "This time," she told him, he could figure it out by himself. Then she stormed off.

At Jabot, Katherine ran into Larry, who thanked her again for dinner at the estate the other night. Larry then interrupted Sean and Jill in her office.
