Lily asks her mother what it is, and Dru casually states it's just a medical test and hands the envelope to Malcolm. Lily continues to inquire and asks Dru again what she thinks it is, to which Dru replies that she really doesn't know and has no idea how it got mixed up in Neil's mail. By now, Lily has become very suspicious and tells them both to stop pretending; she saw Dru's name on the envelope. She angrily asks which one of them is going to tell her what it's all about.

He says he has but that he's been busy and hasn't had the time to return them. Adrienne asks if he's been avoiding her. Damon says he's confused as to what Adrienne wants. She then asks about Phyllis. Damon tells her that Phyllis will always be special to him but that Adrienne is the woman he wants now. A bit confused, Adrienne asks him if that's so, why has he been keeping her at arm's length. Damon tells her that it seems like she just wants to date and that won't work for him. He knows he's not the only man she's interested in, leaving Adrienne to ponder where he got that information.
John and Gloria are in the living room of the Abbott house. Gloria fears that John is angry with her. He's not, but he just wants to know why she went to Victor about Jabot. Gloria explains her reasons, with the bottom line being that she just had his best interests at heart. John voices his understanding but tells her he doesn't want her to become involved with his business problems. As he casts a loving gaze, he tells Gloria that she has brought so much to his life, adding that he fell in love with her honesty. The two share a long embrace. John tells her that if she has any questions about Jabot in the future to just ask him. After telling John that she knows Jack hates her, she turns the conversation to how things can 'happen' to people, finally leading to her point about what will happen to her if John dies, fearing Ashley and Jack will give her nothing.

Ashley is at the ranch discussing with Victor how they have to convince Katherine that Jack can't be trusted. Nikki then enters the room, obviously not happy to see Ashley in her living room with Victor; Ashley leaves. Victor seems to make a point of telling Nikki that she wasn't very nice to Ashley. Nikki is feeling angry because she has had no time with Victor lately. Victor says he's angry at her too, as he has just come from talking with Katherine about Jabot. He's upset with Nikki for voting in favor of the acquisition and for siding with Jack. Nikki sees this as Victor becoming involved all over again. She only wants him to balance more equally his time with her and the time he gives to his business matters so that maybe they can go on a trip. He blames Nikki's involvement with Jabot and the position she has taken for them having no time together. Nikki thinks since Victor's time at Jabot is now over that they should spend some time together. Victor says he can't give an answer about that now, as he still has to do some things. Nikki emphatically says she wants time with him, but she is through begging for it, and warns she doesn't know what will happen if he can't put her at the top of his list.

Ashley says she has come to the point where she will try to make the best of whatever happens and work towards Jabot being productive. Brad doesn't know if he can live with the fact that Jack has acquired the majority of Jabot. Ashley feels it's healthier for them to just let it go and accept things as they are. Ashley then inquires about Brad's personal life, obviously wondering if he's seeing anyone else. Similarly, Brad wonders if Ashley had a fling while in Paris.
Phyllis comes home and calls out to Daniel. She then makes a phone call to a past associate (Julie) who works at the lab where the paternity test was performed. She thanks Julie for letting her know when the envelope was to be delivered. Phyllis wants just one more favor....for Julie to tell her what was in the envelope. Julie refuses, stating it's confidential material which she can't disclose. Daniel then comes home. Phyllis asks him how things were with Lily. He remarked that things over at the Winters' house seemed rather strange between Lily and Dru. Phyllis wants to know what happened. Daniel then told her that Dru got upset about he and Lily going over Neil's get-well cards and that it had something to do with an envelope. Phyllis asked what it was, and Daniel said it looked like some lab results. Phyllis said she worked in a lab at one time and is familiar with that type of terminology and that maybe she could explain it. Thinking about it, Daniel isn't sure he tell his mother; he informs her it's confidential. Phyllis convinces him it's okay. Seemingly trying to picture what he saw, Daniel states, 'Sample A excluded for paternity from Sample B'. Daniel asks what it means. Phyllis casually replies that Dru told her she's been doing some geneology work, so that must be it. Daniel goes off to do his homework, leaving Phyllis to ponder what she has just learned.
Back at the Winters' apartment, Dru casually tells Lily that she just had a test run on herself. Lily then turns to Malcolm for answers....he tells her to let it go. Lily knows they are lying and says she will tell Neil. Dru quickly snaps back that she 'will not' tell Neil. It has now become blatantly obvious to Lily that they are both lying. Finally realizing it's a paternity test, Lily knows it is about her and that they did the test. A shocked and hurt Lily screams at Malcolm, 'Am I yours? Tell me the truth!' Malcolm casts a glance at Dru and softly states, 'It's time.' Lily tells them she deserves to know who her father is. Looking over at Dru, Malcolm says she's old enough to know. Lily demands to know how he could do this to Neil. Malcolm then promises to tell her the whole story but insists that she hear him out and that it's not what she thinks. Malcolm begins talking calmly to Lily, explaining to her that he and Dru are NOT having an affair. Dru tries to intervene in the conversation, but Malcolm says he will handle it. Malcolm admits to Lily that it was all his fault, that once, a long time ago, Dru was really sick. Neil wasn't around so Malcolm went to check on her. She was heavily medicated and very out of it, he explained. He wants Lily to understand what he did was wrong, that Dru was good to him when he came to town. When she was sick, she reached out, and he misunderstood. She didn't know what she was doing, didn't know it was Malcolm, and actually thought it was Neil. He told Lily that when she was born, they were not really sure who her father was, but in his heart and soul, she was Neil's child, and they let it go at that. When he almost died in Africa in the recent past, a lot of questions arose in his mind, this being one of them. Lily then opens up the envelope, wanting to see the results. She reads the results out loud about 'Sample A and Sample B'. Not knowing how to interpret the results, she tearfully asks, 'So who's my dad?' Malcolm stares....Dru is sobbing. She tells Lily that the test proves Neil is her father. Lily then ravages a verbal attack on Malcolm for taking advantage of her mother and then lashes out at Dru for defending Malcolm. Lily hysterically screams at Malcolm to get out. Dru reaches to comfort Lily who screams not to touch her. A sobbing Dru collapses into the bookshelf, as the books begin to fall.
Phyllis is again calling her past associate, Julie. Seemingly exasperated with Phyllis, Julie does confirm to Phyllis that there were indeed two paternity tests but warns Phyllis not to call her again....that she cannot discuss either one of the tests. Phyllis hangs up, likely calculating what her next move will be....
Nikki brooded about the kiss she'd shared with Bobby. When Victor came downstairs and suggested they have dinner together that night, Nikki jumped at the chance to spend some time with him. She wanted to go to breakfast and perhaps for a ride together. But Victor didn't go along with her plans, insisting that he had some loose ends to tie up at Jabot. Nikki reminded him that he was no longer working there, but Victor said that hadn't been formalized yet. When Nikki said she wanted to begin a new life together, including traveling, Victor said maybe they could plan a trip for the end of the summer. Nikki pushed him to take advantage of the lag in his work life to go away with her immediately.
Bobby and Brittany discussed their plans to start a new life in Chicago. Brittany admitted that she hadn't told any of her friends yet. She knew that J.T. was going to give her a hard time, but she was sure her parents would be relieved that they wouldn't have to run into their daughter and the grandchild they didn't want. Bobby said that he was going to sell the club to Angelo; that would provide the nest egg they needed to start their new life. He also told Brit that Nikki knew they were going and understood and supported their decision.
Jill's spirits were soaring as she contemplated all the changes she wanted to make at Jabot. Not even Katherine's sour mood daunted her. She was hoping to break down the barriers that existed between upper management and the people working in the trenches, who often had great ideas that were ignored. When Katherine didn't give Jill the reaction she expected, she asked her mother if she wasn't excited for her. Katherine said she was very excited about what was about to happen to Jill then hurriedly left the room to make a phone call.
Ashley and Jack exchanged a few words when he came downstairs for breakfast. She told him that she'd gone with Victor to talk to Katherine, but Katherine had decided to let the deal stand. As far as Ashley was concerned, that was the end of it. She intended to keep her eye on Jack, but for now, all she wanted to concentrate on was turning Jabot back into the great company it had once been. Jack told Ashley it wasn't him she needed to keep her eye on, but Gloria, who'd gone behind their backs to warn Victor about Jack's plans.
When John and Gloria came downstairs, Jack and Ashley were full of plans for Jabot, but John wanted to talk about something else. He said that he'd decided that it was important to make sure Gloria was provided for if anything happened to him, so he planned to change his will. Ashley and Jack put their differences aside as they contemplated Gloria and tried to determine how she'd talked John into this. John didn't appreciate their attitude and told them from now on, they'd treat Gloria with respect or they could find somewhere else to live. After John left, Jack congratulated Gloria on looking out for herself.
Jack got a call from Katherine demanding to know why Jill thought she was going to be running Jabot. Jack said he hadn't had a chance to talk to Jill yet. After he hung up, he left Ashley alone with Gloria so he could go to the Chancellor house and talk to Jill. Ashley told Gloria that while she knew Gloria had been protecting Victor's integrity, it probably hadn't been a good idea for her to go behind everyone's backs to talk to him. Nor was she smart to immediately afterward put her hands in John's pockets. Gloria insisted that when two people married and promised to take care of each other, no time was too soon.
Lauren didn't understand why Michael was feeling so frisky all morning. He suggested that the two of them take the day off, and Lauren wondered if his talk with his mother had left him seeing dollar signs. Michael denied it. After Lauren left for work, Michael received a visit from Ashley. She said that she'd just learned that her father was making plans to provide for his new wife. Michael understood that the Abbott children were hoping to head off Gloria and told a confused Ashley that he probably wasn't the attorney she was looking for.
At breakfast with Damon, Phyllis kept brooding over what she'd learned about the DNA tests Drucilla had ordered. If there were two envelopes, it was possible that Drucilla was up to something. Although she couldn't tell Damon the details, she said that she had some information that would hurt one friend but that another friend deserved to know. Damon said it sounded like she'd gotten in the middle of something that was none of her business and suggested she stay out of it.
Lily told Drucilla that she didn't want to talk about the situation with Malcolm and her disputed paternity. She felt like she'd been lied to all her life. After she left for school, Malcolm came over to talk to Drucilla. At first she reproached him for all the trouble he'd caused. When Malcolm expressed his remorse and regret, he asked her if she wanted him to leave town for good. He'd never wanted to hurt Lily or anyone else. Drucilla said no; they were a family. Somehow they'd get through all this together. However, whatever Lily intended to do as far as telling Neil was out of their hands. While they were talking, Drucilla got a call from Phyllis, who wanted to see her. Drucilla was just as eager to have it out with Phyllis and told her to stay put at the stable; she'd be right over.
Lily went by the hospital to see her father. He thought her sad mood was caused by his accident and encouraged her to put everything behind her. Lily, thinking of the DNA test, said she wasn't sure she could do that. Neil told her that as his daughter, he knew she could do anything she put her mind to. From the moment he'd learned Drucilla was pregnant, Lily had been the most important part of his life and always would be. He wrote an excuse slip to keep her from getting in trouble for being late to school and vowed that was the last time he was making excuses for her. Lily smiled and left without telling him anything about Malcolm and Drucilla.

Drucilla goes to a mailbox and pulls out the second paternity test. Phyllis calls Drucilla and Drucilla shows up yelling at her. Phyllis says that she called Drucilla to ask her about the other paternity test.
Ashley tries to talk to Michael about Gloria trying to get money from John. Michael says he's not the right person to talk to about it. He suggests to Ashley if she's worried about the takeover she could sue for not being informed. Ashley says that she wants nothing to do with that, but she wants to do something about Gloria. Michael shows her the door.
Nick went to Jabot to find out what was going on with his father. Victor told him that he was leaving, but he'd just received a memo indicating that Jack intended to implement all of the changes Victor had suggested. While they were talking, Jack came in to tell Victor that his services were no longer needed. He also had a check to cover most of the debt Victor was holding for Jabot. He didn't appreciate Victor sharing the contents of a private memo with the CEO of Newman, and he wanted both Victor and Nick to leave the building. Once Jack was gone, Nick told Victor about a problem he was having with one of Newman's distributors. Victor offered to take care of it for Nick so Nick could spend more time with his family instead of going out of town.
Brittany and J.T. ran into each other at Crimson Lights. J.T. ordered her a coffee, then went to talk to Mac. Mac assumed he was there to meet Brittany, but he was actually having a meeting with Paul. However, when Paul was talking business with him, J.T. was distracted when he saw Brittany sit down at the table with Mac. He told Paul he didn't get women. Mac was interested in Kevin, and Brittany had married a lowlife like Bobby. Paul suggested that if J.T. had something to say to Bobby, he should find him and tell him before Bobby left town. J.T. went by Marsino's, but Angelo told him Bobby wasn't there. He advised J.T. to leave Bobby alone; his old boss had enough problems. When J.T. wondered what problems, Angelo said that he didn't think Bobby really wanted to move to Chicago. He was doing it for Brittany.
Brittany told Mac that she and Bobby were moving to Chicago. She warned Mac not to do anything to hurt J.T., who'd already been hurt twice by Colleen. Mac said it was amazing how fascinated Brittany was by J.T.'s love life. She wondered who Brittany was going to run to with all her problems once she was living in Chicago and wouldn't have J.T. to turn to. In fact, Mac thought maybe Brittany was leaving so she wouldn't always have to be reminded that she'd given up J.T. for Bobby.
Nikki told Bobby how much his friendship had meant to her. She was going to miss him and Brittany and the life they'd brought to her home. When Bobby reminded her that she had Victor, Nikki said even though she knew Victor loved her, there was an empty place inside of her that wasn't being filled anymore. She understood her husband. He thought needing anyone was a weakness. But she didn't feel that way. While they were talking, Victor called to cancel his dinner with Nikki since he was going out of town on business. After Nikki hung up, she told Bobby to keep reminding her how lucky she was and how much she had. Her mind told her that, but her heart was telling her something else. Bobby said their timing was off and told Nikki how much he would miss her. They embraced and shared a passionate kiss just as J.T. walked up and saw them through the window.
Lily went by the hospital to see her father and found out he was being released. Neil suggested that she drive him home. Lily said she wasn't really ready to drive yet. When Neil said that was okay, Malcolm could drive him, Lily quickly said she'd do it and promised to be careful. Neil tried to talk to her about the importance of having other people besides her parents in her life, including her Uncle Malcolm. He wanted her to dig down deep and overcome whatever her problems were with Malcolm. Lily insisted that it wasn't that easy.
Phyllis told Drucilla that she knew there was another paternity test. Although Drucilla tried to deny it, Phyllis said that either Dru would tell Malcolm or Phyllis would. Drucilla told Phyllis to stay out of her business. She'd already caused enough damage to Lily and the rest of them. Malcolm came over to have it out with Phyllis, but instead Phyllis told him that Drucilla had something to tell him. When Drucilla wouldn't confess, Phyllis told him there was a second paternity test. The first one was a fake. She then left the two of them alone to talk. Malcolm demanded to know what Drucilla had done. She admitted that she'd given him fake results. She'd been terrified that if he found out Lily was his, he'd take her daughter away from her. When she told him that she hadn't seen the results, which were in her purse, Malcolm found the envelope and tried to throw it into the fire. Drucilla grabbed it and ripped open the envelope, saying she wasn't going back. She had to know the truth; she couldn't go on living a lie. She looked at the results then held out the paper to Malcolm.
