Babe sees Bianca on the beach and tells her that they used to be so close that she knew what was going on with her by just looking into Babe’s eyes. She tells Babe she knows there is something going on between her and JR. She asks Babe what is going on.
Amanda is able to overhear that Josh is trying to hurt Erica. She tells him that she knows that he’s up to no good and must have something to do with the story that Erica is drinking. Amanda says she knows it’s false because Erica is sober, and she also knows he must have intentionally erased the tapes. She asks him if he’s out to hurt Erica.
Erica then finds herself in an abandoned warehouse when she intended to have her important meeting with Gerald. She asks if there is anybody there. Janet is outside.
Josh tells Amanda that it was she who erased Erica’s tape and did not make a backup. She tells him she did not do that. He tells her he knows that she arranged for Erica to go to the wrong place that other time for her other very important lunch meeting. He tells her that his job could go up in flames because of her, and yet she is blaming him. He tells her maybe Babe is right. Ever since she started having blackouts, she’s been using that as an excuse for many things. He asks her if she’s trying to mess him up. He asks her if her blackouts are real or if they are made up.
Erica runs into Janet. They greet each other in a friendly manner. Janet then tells Erica that she did not understand why she would get stranded in this place. She appears friendly to Erica but Erica wonders if Janet is feeling better. Janet tells her that she was released a while back from the mental hospital and the only planet this Janet is from is earth. Erica tells her she’d like to stay and chat but she has an important meeting. She asks Janet if she has a car. Janet tells Erica she lost her license and babbles about her car accident and her court hearing and Trevor. Erica interrupts her, grabs her, and tells her she does not have time. She has a very important meeting to get to and has to get out of there.
Dr. Madden tells Tad that he got some
ideas and theories when he met Tad’s father.
He tells Tad he knows that Dr. Joe Martin is a successful physician, and
so are his family members, Jeff and Jamie.
Tad asks Dr. Madden why he’s concerned about his family’s medical
careers. Dr. Madden tells Tad about the
similar pattern of the
Bianca asks Babe what happened between her and Jamie. She knows that when she left, Babe and Jamie were very serious and she cannot believe that they’ve broken up. Babe tells Bianca that Jamie got an ultimatum from his aunt Phoebe to choose between her and his medical career. Bianca tells Babe that she cannot believe that Jamie would put his medical career above her. Babe tells Bianca that she and Jamie have gone their separate ways, and she confesses to Bianca that she has another scheme, another trick up her sleeve, involving JR.
JR comes into
Janet tells Erica she’s seen her show and would not miss it for all the fudge in the world. Erica tells her she appreciates that and if Janet values the show, she must know how important it is for her to get to her meeting. Janet tells Erica that she really needs to help her daughter. She wants Erica to give Amanda a chance. When her daughter first came into town, she had nothing, and then this worthless Babe Carey had to ruin things for Amanda. Hearing that, Erica tells Janet she mustn’t even get her started with Babe Carey.
Babe tells Bianca that she’s the same scheming, unethical person she always was. She was determined to stop at nothing in order to get her son back. She tells her that this whole “plan” is now toast. Bianca asks Babe if she tried to get JR to fall in love with her in order for her to have her son. Babe tells Bianca that the crazy part about all of it was that she was so close and JR almost fell for it. Bianca warns her that she mustn’t mess with JR because he is dangerous. Babe tells Bianca that she may go ahead and say what she believes that Bianca is about to say to her; that she deserves every bit of heartache she has coming to her.
Dr. Madden tells Tad that he knows Tad was adopted and is not a real Martin. He also tells Tad he might want to think twice about breaking and entering. Tad tells Dr. Madden that he will take his chances with the consequences of doing whatever he needs to do in order to protect the people he loves. He asks Dr. Madden why he has this childhood picture of Erica. Dr. Madden tells Tad that he has a broken heart but he is not a stalker, and right now he is taking care of Erica’s daughter.
Tad meets Di after his conversation with Dr. Madden, in the cold boathouse. He tells her maybe they can go fishing. She tells him no fishing. It’s too cold. He tells her he can build a fire. She thanks him for saving her at Madden’s office. He tells her that he didn’t get very far with Madden. Madden told him he was not stalking Erica or the Martin family. He just has some research plan about finding out if it’s nature or nurture for why people choose medical careers.
Janet tells Erica that it’s terrible what
Babe Carey did to Bianca. Erica tells
her that the main thing is that Bianca is now happily living in
Josh tells Amanda that many times he’s put his job on the line for her. He’s covered for her and fixed enough of her mistakes, and now she wants to rat him out to Erica. He convinces her that she is ungrateful. She then apologizes, tells him he’s been good to her and she knows he would not do anything to sabotage Erica. He tells her that her main responsibility right now is to find out where Erica’s limousine went. He asks her if she can handle that without a blackout. He successfully makes her feel like she is a basket case and casts away her suspicions of him.
Bianca admits to Babe that a part of her
still hates her. She kept Miranda away
from her, and that time can never be given back to her but because of that, she
realizes that she never wants anybody to be alone again. Babe tells Bianca that she’s had a chance to
have equal partnership in Fusion, and she’s not going to sell out her shares
like Zach and Kendall want her to do. She
has better ambitions than just being a bartender. Bianca can sense that Babe does have some doubts
about her ambition to be a Fusion owner, however. Babe tells Bianca that she knows that
Greenlee only gave her the Fusion shares so that she could hurt
After hearing about Madden’s crush on Erica, Di tells Tad that she remembers having obsessive crushes in her younger days. He tells her that he thinks Madden’s obsession about Erica is creepy. She tells him that maybe it’s really sad that this man has this desperate, unrequited love for a woman who’s unavailable to him. He tells her that what Madden is doing is called stalking and it’s illegal in most states, and he’s determined to get to the bottom of it.
Janet tells Erica that she’s found a way for them to get a ride. She tells Erica she hopes she doesn’t mind riding with a bunch of onions. She tells her there’s just a tiny little condition. The driver of the vehicle needs an autograph. Erica says fine. Janet tells Erica that the guy also wants a kiss from Erica. Janet then tells Erica that there is one final condition. Erica cannot tell Amanda about their meeting. She’s afraid her daughter will take this as “mommy interfering” and not simply two old friends catching up. Erica tells Janet whatever she wants but she has to leave. Alone, Janet looks at her reflection who tells her that Erica knows what she is up to. Janet tells the reflection that she was just being “friendly.” The reflection asks her when she will stop being so naïve. Janet has always been God’s little joke, and now the joke is on “them.”
Bianca and Babe talk about how things might be easier for Babe if she was gay. Babe admits to Bianca that she has never found a real friend since Bianca left. Bianca admits to Babe that she still has that picture of the two of them on the park bench with their babies, and she still takes it out and looks at it from time to time and remembers their friendship. She then tells Babe that Miranda will wonder where her mommy is. She tells Babe good luck with everything and she departs.
Tad tells Di that it drives him crazy. He could find out anything and everything about Dr. Madden; his favorite food, his favorite childhood game, where he went to school but when it comes to Erica, he just draws a blank. He asks her if she can help him.
Erica returns to her office and tells Josh she demands and explanation as to what happened. She tells him that the limo dropped her off at some abandoned warehouse and just left. He tells her he can call the limo service. She tells him that is not good enough. She asks how he could let this happen. There have been hours of empty airtime. She then turns on the television to see him on her show introducing himself as the guest host who is filling in for Erica Kane. She tells him he must choose his words very carefully and asks her how the hell this could happen. His father is standing outside in the hall listening to their conversation.
JR is still outside not knowing what to do.
Janet is up to no good dressing like a nun and singing a crazy song.
