When Amanda is in jail looking into a bright light, she remembers that it was JR that mowed her down while driving drunk that one night and she tells this to Derek. Again, JR assumes that Babe will take the rap for him. Derek doesn’t seem to buy that and tells Babe that maybe she needs to tell the truth about what really happened that night.
At the Mardi Gras ball, Jonathan appears and meets Lily. He tells her she looks beautiful but he knows he must be cautious and hope that nobody in there is able to see him. Jack makes an announcement about the Red Cross disaster relief effort. Again, Josh is up to no good and tells his father that he should be proud of him but Greg tells Josh that this is wrong. He drugged Erica and he cannot believe that what he did was ok.
In a private room, Janet tells Erica that she was shocked that Erica would accuse her daughter of drugging her. Erica tells Janet she’s very sorry but Amanda is guilty of the crime for which she went to jail.
Zach goes upstairs to the room where Ryan,
Ethan and Marty have just dropped the bombshell on
Downstairs at the ball, Jonathan and Lily have the masks over their faces. He asks her if she’s ok and if it’s not too crowded. He asks her if he can have this dance, while being sensitive about her discomfort with being touched. He then leads her in a promenade. They connect without touching and do a graceful dance.
Erica informs Janet that Amanda confessed right in front of her that she drugged her, and the evidence was right there. Josh found the medication right in Amanda’s purse. Hearing that, Janet asks Erica how she could trust Josh over the daughter one of her best friends. She asks Erica why she cannot believe Amanda. She tells Erica she is Amanda’s idol. Janet tells Erica that Amanda loves her and is so honored to work for her. Erica tells Janet apparently not as much as she believes. Janet tells Erica that she knows she’s angry but she cannot take it out on Amanda when the person to blame is Josh. She tells Erica that she must keep Amanda working for her and together they can “roast that rotten boy Josh on a spit.”
Greg asks his son why he wants so much to hurt Erica. Josh tells his father that she expects the world to pick up after her and if he messes up, he’s only following in her footsteps.
After Derek and Amanda ask Babe who really drove the car the night Amanda got mowed down, she hesitates and then she tells him that JR is the “hit and run” kind of guy. He asks a girl to marry him and then slaps the pre-nup on her. She asks if JR were to go to prison for drunk driving, just what would happen to custody of their child.
Erica tells Janet she realizes that in the past the two of them have “teamed up,” and she knows that Janet loves Amanda, but sometimes we don’t want to believe the worst about our own children. She informs Janet that the pills that Amanda gave her were Janet’s. She says perhaps Amanda is self-medicating because of some sort of mental illness. She might be able to get some help. So might Janet. She tells Janet that there’s no reason why Amanda cannot have a very bright future. Hearing that, Janet concludes that Erica sees Amanda as a crazy little chip off of her mother’s block.
JR tells Derek that nobody can prove that he drove drunk. It’s too late to do a blood test. It’s only Babe’s word against his. Babe concludes that she knows he was very drunk that night but she doesn’t come right out and spell it out that he drove drunk. Knowing that there is no proof, Derek concludes there’s nothing he can do. He walks away with Babe and JR. Jamie stays nearby and tells Amanda that he believes her and wants to help her prove what really happened.

Erica tells Janet that she does not want to hurt Amanda but she needs to realize what really happened. Erica then goes down to join the ball. Alone, Janet tells Erica that she thought they were friends but now Erica has joined the dark side and turned on her daughter.
Amanda tells Jamie she does not trust him to get her out of there. He tells her that he seriously doubts that she is responsible for all of these crimes but he knows that she has a secret and is covering for somebody. He asks her if it could be her mother and urges her to say something before more people get hurt.
Babe goes downstairs and finds
Erica is making another pledge donation appeal and Greg interrupts with the promise of a large donation if Erica will dance with him. She tells him that that won’t be necessary but he tells her that he made out a big check and if she gives him this dance, he will make sure it goes into the right hands.
Lily asks Jonathan why he says he loves her. He tells her she’s smart and she’s beautiful. Nobody has ever made him feel the way she does. When he’s with her he knows he’s good. She then tells him that she was expecting him to kiss her saying that was what Sam did after he told her he loved her.
JR cuts in while Babe is dancing with
Greg dances with Erica and indirectly attempts to tell her something she needs to know. She asks him if he has a point.
Lily tells Jonathan that she remembers being with Sam and the dilemma about whether he’d love her if she became normal. He tells her he does not want her to change and realizes that “normal” doesn’t always work so well. She then asks him if he believes that kissing is second base or has to lead to sex. He tells her that kissing is just kissing. She then tells him that she’d like to kiss now.
Julia finds Ryan and asks him if he’s

Amanda is alone in jail asking herself what she’s going to do about the dilemma her mother is posing for her.
Janet tells her alter in the mirror that she will show everyone what will happen when they treat her Amanda like trash.
Jamie finds Erica and tells her that she must go down and get Amanda released from jail. He tells her that he now knows that Amanda did not drug her. Josh did. Erica does not believe that. Josh tells Jamie that he’s just angry because Josh “took his girl.” But right then, Greg comes and confesses to Erica that he knows that his son drugged her.
Jonathan tells Lily that he will sit very still and she can kiss him. She tells him she wants him to kiss her. Not far away, Jack watches his daughter kissing this guy he hates.
