Mia tells Jake she wants to postpone their scheduled Valentine's Day wedding. She says she needs more time to pull herself back together. She says her near death made her think about who she is and who she wants to be. Jake doesn't understand. He says two weeks ago getting married to him was plenty for her. What has changed? Mia says if he doesn't understand, maybe they shouldn't get married at all. When he asks her if she wants out, she says no. She says the fact that she cheated death twice makes her think she'll cheat herself if she doesn't find out who she is. She wants to wait till spring. A few more months won't hurt, she says. Jake disagrees. He says he wants to marry her as soon as possible. Mia says if they love each other, why should it matter if they wait a few more months. Jake says normally when people almost die, they pull closer to the people they love -- they don't push them away. He thinks she is making an excuse and that she is having doubts about marrying him. Mia says she wants to spend the rest of her life with him. She admits what she's asking for is selfish but they'll be happier in the long run. Jake agrees to give her time. His is paged and leaves the bar for the hospital.

She says from now on, she's doing what she wants, despite what her father thinks. JR asks if this is about her dad. Laurie says the reason for them being together doesn't matter, but JR says it does matter if she wants to be with him just to spite her father. He says he wants to wait till it's right. Laurie is angry and says she's out of there. Downstairs, Joanie and Jamie are holding hands when Joanie is startled by a loud knock at the door. It is Laurie's father. He tells Jamie he's looking for Laurie but Jamie says she isn't there. Mr. Lewis says Laurie has never disobeyed him until she took up with Adam Chandler's kid.
