of presents. He tells her that they have a fine dinner waiting for them and
there is a knock at the door. Erica goes to the door and a woman in a swan tutu
with a life preserver around her waist dances in the room. Jack says that he
will be right back and goes to the door. When he opens the door, a woman dressed
as a milkmaid enters with chocolate milk shakes that she hands to Erica and

Zach says that is what everyone was saying but he canít remember everything that happened. There are parts missing from this memory. Kendall encourages him to tell her what he remembers and when Zach demurs, she tells him that she will stand by him no matter what happens. She tells him that there is no way that he could have caused his mother to fall. He questions how she can be so sure and she tells him that as a five year old, he didnít have the physical strength to push her off the balcony. He tries to convince her that he has dealt with it and wants to move on.
Zoe tells Bianca that she thought she would be the one person who would understand what s/he is going through because she saw into him and saw what was in him. She tells him/her that what she saw was an interesting, intriguing man. Zoe accuses Bianca of being just like all of the other people on the planet who worship labels. S/He goes on to say that she sees black and white but that s/he is gray. S/He says that she just sees slightly more expensive labels in people. Bianca gets angry and tells him/her that s/he has no right to judge her because s/he has no idea about her ideas or beliefs. Zoe says that her actions say it all.

He tells Erica that he knows that she sent the gifts to get back at him and she tells him that he is exactly right.
Jeff tells Josh that Erica has gone back to Jack and that he bowed out. He goes on to say that if the situation presents itself, he wonít do the same thing again. He wonít play fair a second time.

Babe walks back into the bar and is accosted by a drunken man who asks her if she is one of the Fusion babes that keep dying. Babe tries to get away from him and Josh rushes to her side. He grabs the man and asks him if he thinks that people dying is funny. Babeís bodyguard grabs the man and escorts him outside. Josh tells her that the man could have been the killer and that she shouldnít be there. She responds that Kendall, Dani, and Bianca arenít there so she and Di have to represent Fusion.

Kendall walks away from Zach and he relives that moment on the balcony with his mother as she starts to fall from the balcony. He reaches for her and pulls Kendall into his arms. Kendall reassures Zach that she is ok and asks him to tell her what he saw. He recounts the time when he was young and his mother would talk with him about the flowers in her garden. He says that his mother would have him name the flowers and would put her hand on his chest and kisses him on the head when he got the names correct and even when he was wrong. Kendall encourages him to go on and he remembers hearing an argument between a man and a woman on the balcony. In the memory, he sees himself as a little boy rushing out to help his mother during the argument and then he hears her screams as she falls. He tells Kendall that he was standing beside her and she was holding on and then she fell and was on the rocks below and he kept trying to get her to wake up but she didnít. Kendall gathers him into her arms and tells him that everything is all right.
Bianca tells Zoe that she isnít the one for her and s/he tries to refute that. Zoe tells Bianca that his/her heart spoke to Bianca and it is still the same heart. Bianca says that s/he was lying. Zoe denies that and says that s/he has never lied to her and that Bianca is feeling something for him/her right now or she would not be so upset. She tells him/her that there is nothing between them and that she hates games. She says that she doesnít believe that s/he is what s/he claims to be. Zoe takes exception to the use of what instead of who and Bianca tells him/her to leave. She opens the door and Zoe walks out into the hall. Bianca leans against the door and looks upset at what has just transpired. On the other side of the door, Zoe leans against the door, also, and his/her face crumbles into tears.
Di and Aidan stage a loud argument and Di tells him that she would rather work than spend the evening with him. She storms off to go upstairs to the Fusion offices. Babe way-lays her and tells her that she canít go upstairs alone since there is no guard up there. She whispers to Babe that she is ok and has everything covered. Josh comes up to Babe and tells her that she has forgotten about his resolution. She tells him that she isnít interested and that she only wants him to have happiness and joy. He tells her that he is going to get it. She walks off and Jeff walks up after closing his cell phone. He tells Josh that he has an emergency and if he wants her, he needs to go after her.
Erica asks Jack if he is sorry about the presents because she found out or because he should have sent them. She tells him that his nephew and Colby sent the presents and that her return to him was based on a lie. He asks her to forgive him and to let this go so that they can continue to have a happy holiday. She tells him that he did nothing to get her back home with him except send her clothes to her at the Valley Inn. Sean and Colby knew more about romancing her than he did. He tells her that romance has never been his problem. She counters that stubbornness is the problem. She tells him that she didnít want the expensive gifts; she just wanted some indication that he wanted her back home. He tells her that he made a promise to her when he married her and he intends to keep that promise. There is a knock at the door and Jack shows his frustration. Jeff opens the door and tells Erica that he came as soon as he got her call and asks if everything is ok. Erica says that it is now.
Amanda asks Josh if he needs some more champagne and tells him that the compact that he gave her is beautiful. Josh is surprised that she saw it and she tells him that Babe wouldnít be carrying it if she didnít still love him.

expresses surprise to see her back in Pine Valley. She offers to buy Bianca a
drink and instead, Bianca goes to the bar for a bottle of champagne.
Zoe walks into the Fusion office as Di hides. S/He retrieves the drawing and turns to see Di standing there.
Jack asks Erica why she called Jeff. She asks Jeff is it is New Yearís yet and he tells her that it is in a couple of minutes. She proceeds to put her arms around his neck and kiss him soundly on the mouth. Jack looks on in astonishment. Erica asks Jeff to get her out of there and Jeff obliges.
Amanda calls out to the bar patrons to come and get their champagne as the new year approaches. Everyone in the bar starts the countdown.
Kendall tells Zach that this was an accident and he needs to stop blaming himself. He tells her that people would stop talking when he entered the room after the accident and would promptly say that it wasnít his fault. She assures him that it wasnít. He tells her that he canít remember. He can remember the fall and after the fall but not what actually happened. He tells her that they kept it out of the press and reported that she died of natural causes. Kendall wonders why they were covering up an accident. Kendall again, encourages him to forget about it and accept that it was an accident that he had nothing to do with. He tells her that he canít forget because the killer knows.
Di asks Zoe if she can help him/her; Aidan emerges from the shadows and tells him/her that there had better be a good reason for being there.
