At the gym, Dusty and Dominic tell Aaron that he needs to get ready for a press conference with his boxing opponent, Rafael Ortega. Lucy and Alison see an article in the paper about the press conference, and they head for the gym, despite all that Dusty has done to keep Lucy from knowing about the press conference. Dusty tells Aaron that his role is to keep in the background and make Ortega look good. When Lucy arrives, Dusty tries to get her to leave, but Lucy is so hurt that Dusty lets her stay in spite of Dominic's objections. The press conference starts, and, as planned, all the attention goes to Rafael Ortega, until he and Lucy see each other. Lucy , obviously recognizing him from Montega, runs to him and exclaims, "Jose'!" The two hug as flashbulbs pop.

At lunch, Ben insists to Bob Hughes and Jessica that he has been taking Ibuprofen, rather than prescription painkillers. Ben then accuses Jessica of trying to ruin his career as payback for his serving her with divorce papers. Bob tells Ben that, since a complaint has been lodged against a staff member, Bob is obligated to investigate the complaint. Bob calmly tells Ben that he merely has to take a urine test, but Ben angrily refuses and storms out of the restaurant.

At Carly's house, where Rosanna is watching Carly's children, Paul and Rosanna find that they can discuss happy memories of Cabot, their first step in finding their way back to one another.

In the parking lot of the Louisville motel, Jack tells Carly that he has promised to take care of Julia and J. J., but Carly begs him to come home to her and the children. Jack asks Carly to go back to Oakdale and wait while he talks to Julia and J. J. When Carly calls Jack, "G-man," he admits that he has dreamed of someone calling him, "G-man," and he remembers calling Carly from the rest stop. Carly agrees to go home without him, and Jack promises to come home the next day at the latest. Carly gives him her address and phone numbers, as well as a credit card for his plane ticket. Then she kisses him and goes home. When she arrives at her front door, Paul leaves so that the sisters can talk. Paul goes directly to the diner and tells Will about his reunion with Rosanna. Carly takes Rosanna out on to the porch, so that Parker will not overhear, and tells Rosanna that Jack cannot remember his Oakdale family, and that Jack has married Julia. Parker comes out on to the porch and sees Carly and demands, "Where's Jack?" When Carly tells Parker that Jack has promised to come home the next day, Parker declares, "Jack never breaks a promise."

Inside the motel room, Jack confronts Julia about her deception, but asks her and Parker to come to Oakdale with him. He promises not to leave them, so Julia tells J. J. that all three of them are going to Oakdale "to find out all about Jack."
