At Jabot, David pleaded with Nikki to marry him right away. Nikki replied, "Not yet." Nikki explained that she wished to wait until she was certain that David had control over his addiction to gambling. David assured Nikki that he attended counseling regularly, but Nikki said she was worried because stress could hamper his recovery from addiction. Nikki added that marriage was stressful, so she felt it was wise to wait.
Brad secretly watched from a booth at the coffeehouse bar as Andy, David's bookie, approached David and asked where his friend, who he claimed "had kept him in Porsches," had been hiding. David explained that "he was no longer into the action." David returned to Jabot and recalled his conversation with Nikki when she promised to share his struggle and support him as long as he made an effort to stop gambling. Andy phoned and told David that he had a tip on a particular horse in a hot race. David refused to place a bet, but Andy persisted. David caved in and said, "Just this time, give me a dime on Executive Chef." Afterward, Andy called Brad and told him, "Chow bit hook, line, and sinker."
Victoria, at her office at Newman Enterprises, was miffed after she learned that Adam had known all along that Victor had flown to Los Angeles to visit the Broad Contemporary Art Museum with Sabrina. J.T., who had come with Reed, asked Victoria why Adam had lied. Victoria said that Adam claimed that Victor did not want anyone to know where he was. Victoria also told J.T. that Adam's mind games annoyed her. Adam breezed into the room and announced that Victor's jet had landed. Victoria played Adam's game after he stated that perhaps Victor had been to L.A. with Sabrina touring art museums, since Victor had shown him an art catalog, which Sabrina had given to Victor just before the trip. Victoria coolly replied, "We'll just have to wait and ask Dad."
After Adam left Victoria's office, Sabrina phoned Victoria and explained that she believed Victor was seriously considering investing in some pieces of contemporary art. Victoria and J.T. were pleased that Sabrina had Victor as a prospective client. A few feet from Victoria's office, Victor stepped off the elevator, and Adam welcomed him home. Adam's greeting was followed by an urgent request to discuss the acquisition of an Oregon cosmetics company. Before Victor could respond, Victoria emerged from her office and greeted her father. Victor acknowledged that he had enjoyed his visit to L.A. and the company of a beautiful woman. Victoria asked to speak to her father alone, but Adam insisted that he had pressing business concerns. Victor told Adam that he would have to wait, and Victor and Victoria walked away, arm in arm.
In Victor's office, Victoria told her father that she hoped that his new interest in modern art would be a distraction from the pain he had endured from his divorce and Hope's death. Victor asked Victoria if she was actually persuading him to become Sabrina's client. Victoria smiled and confirmed her father's assumption. "Well," Victor responded, "Who am I to make my daughter unhappy?" Victoria's smile turned into a sneer when Victor asked how she and Adam were getting along. Victor explained that Adam was still finding his way in the Newman family, and he felt bad that Adam had grown up without knowing his father, brother, and sister. Victoria agreed to be more patient with Adam, but she added that she wasn't about to "roll over and play dead while Adam found his place." J.T. brought Reed by before he took the baby home for a nap, and Victor cooed to his baby grandson. After Reed and J.T. left, Victoria told her father that Adam had not been involved in the computer-hacking incident but didn't say who had. Victor demanded to know, but Victoria pleaded with her father to trust her to handle the matter. Victor argued that he should be "apprised" about everything that concerned his company. Victoria stammered as she begged her father not to press the issue. Nikki arrived to pick up Victoria, so Victoria and Victor quickly dropped the subject.
As Victor escorted Victoria to the elevator at Newman Enterprises, she suggested that her father go home, rest, and unpack. Nikki, having overheard, asked Victor if he'd taken a business trip. Victor answered, "Yes. I was in Los Angeles to see a beautiful . . . um, museum." Victoria placed her hand on her mother's back and ushered her into a waiting elevator. Victor returned to his office, phoned Sabrina, and left a voicemail message. Victor said that he had a wonderful time, and had enjoyed himself tremendously, and then he wished Sabrina a safe flight to New York. After the call, Victor relived his memory of kissing Sabrina while they were in L.A. Adam stopped by and noted that Victor seemed to be in a good mood.
While Victoria and Nikki dined at the Genoa City Athletic Club, Victoria mentioned that Sabrina had arrived safely in L.A. Nikki realized that Victor's "beautiful museum" comment meant that he had enjoyed his tour of a museum with Sabrina. Nikki doubted that Victor could be persuaded to collect contemporary artwork. Nikki remained expressionless when Victoria told her that a woman as beautiful as Sabrina could persuade "just about anyone." Victoria asked her mother if David made her happy, and Nikki claimed that he did. Victoria admitted that she sometimes wished she could awaken and learn that her parents' divorce was a horrible nightmare. Nikki explained that she and David would marry someday. Victoria admitted that she didn't truly know David, and she didn't feel that her mother truly knew him either. When Nikki was in the powder room, Victor walked into the club. Victoria invited Victor to join them, but when Nikki returned to the table, Victor walked away.
At the Abbott mansion, Jeffrey's incensed Korean girlfriend, Kyon, ranted partly in Korean and partly in English as she demanded to know who Gloria was and why Jeffrey was with another woman. After Jeffrey escorted Kyon out of the mansion and into his car, he returned for his keys. Gloria was livid. Jeffrey explained that he had no idea that his ex-girlfriend was in town. Gloria accused Jeffrey of only pretending to want her, so he could get her into the sack, steal her money, and then run off with his "young arm candy." After Jeffrey suggested that Gloria was jealous, she became furious and claimed that the sight of Jeffrey made her sick. Jeffrey asserted that Gloria's outburst was like that of a jealous wife, who loved her husband. An angry Gloria threw Jeff out.
Jeffrey accompanied Kyon to the club bar and told her that he wasn't happy to see her. Kyon said she wanted to claw Gloria's eyes out after she discovered Jeffrey pawing at another woman. Jeffrey reminded Kyon that after he married Gloria, he had flown to Korea and told Kyon that he was no longer available. Kyon told Jeffrey that she refused to believe that he wanted Gloria over her. Kyon's drink was served, and Jeffrey said he planned to take her to the airport after she finished it. Kyon took a sip then calmly informed Jeffrey that she wasn't going anywhere.
At the coffeehouse, Gloria complained to Jana that Jeffrey had abandoned her for his Korean girlfriend. Jana listened as Gloria told her that she and Jeffrey were about to make love right in the middle of the living room when "Crayon" barged in. Gloria claimed that Jeffrey's foreign friend's timing had saved her from making a huge mistake because Jeffrey would have made her life miserable had she succumbed to him. Jana disagreed. Gloria seemed dazed when Jana explained that love and hate were closely related emotions, therefore, Gloria and Jeffrey were likely made for each other.
When Gloria returned to the Abbott mansion, Jeff was there. He told Gloria that Kyon was going back to Korea. Jeffrey begged Gloria to start over. Gloria told Jeffrey that she would never forget that he had treated her horribly. Jeff responded that Gloria had not been kind to him. Gloria finally agreed to start over with Jeffrey, so she could prove her point that a romantic relationship with him was a ridiculous idea.
At the Chancellor estate, Lily rested on the sofa while Cane comforted her. After Lily admitted that she had been nauseated, Cane suggested that perhaps Lily was pregnant. Lily refused to believe she was pregnant and noted that she and Cane had used protection. Caned reminded Lily that no method was foolproof and suggested that Lily at least visit her doctor. Lily told Cane that she couldn't even consider the possibility of having a baby at her stage of life and insisted that a baby needed both a mother and a father. Cane consoled Lily, and she agreed to take a home-pregnancy test. After Cane was called away on business, Lily went alone to a store to purchase a pregnancy test. At Jabot, Cane was visibly distracted by thoughts of Lily and the pregnancy test during his business meeting.
When Lily returned to her apartment with the test, Devon was home. Devon noticed that Lily didn't look well. Lily claimed that she'd been extremely busy and was tired. Devon expressed concern that Lily was overworked and he was worried that Lily was trying to be a full-time college student and a full-time model. Suddenly, Lily was overcome by a wave of nausea and rushed to the bathroom. In Lily's haste, she dropped the bag she was holding and the pregnancy test fell onto the floor. Devon picked up the test and realized what it was. Devon placed the test kit back in the bag and set it on the table. When Lily returned, Cane phoned and asked Lily if she'd taken the test. Lily told Cane that she hadn't had a chance and promised to call him after the test. Devon attempted to get Lily to talk about her problems, but she said nothing and bounded up the stairs to her room. After Devon left, Lily seemed stunned as she slowly lifted the phone to her ear and placed a call.
