Erica tells Zach that his baby is going to be an ocean away very soon and asks if he needs to see Gabrielle. Zach asks why he would need to see the baby and Erica says for closure.

Bianca says that she will miss the boys and Kendall. Kendall asks what she can say. Erica tells them to say they love each other. Bianca says that things have changed and asks Kendall if she will ever forgive her. Kendall says that she probably will, but not anytime soon. Bianca says that she wants them to be as close as they were and will be hoping for that. Bianca says that she will be hoping for Kendall and Zach, too, because Zach loves Kendall more than anything.

Ryan orders a drink and tells Zach the seat is taken. Zach sits down and orders a drink. Ryan and Zach argue. Zach says that he knows Ryan wants to take him down, but he doesnít think it is going to happen.

Bianca realizes that Reese is waiting to say goodbye to Gabrielle and Miranda, and Reese asks if she has that right. Bianca says that she will go upstairs and get the girls.

J.R. says that he could move him and Little Adam into a penthouse unless Adam starts treating Amanda with the respect that she deserves. J.R. says that he will start looking for places to live the next day. Adam asks if J.R. has given any thought to how secure Little Adam feels in the mansion and asks if J.R. has completely forgotten Little Adamís mother. J.R. tells Adam not to bring Babe into it. Adam says that J.R. has saddled himself with a gold-digging schemer and asks if that is how J.R. honors his late wife.

David tells Amanda that he wants J.R. pickled in alcohol at the opening of Babeís cardiac wing and that she will take J.R. home and then send out an SOS to the Martins and Hubbards saying that J.R. strapped Little Adam into the car. David says that Amanda needs to point out that J.R. passed out before he could take Little Adam anywhere. Amanda refuses to do it, and David says that this is no time for Amanda to be noble. Amanda says that J.R. is sober, and Little Adam deserves to be with his father. Amanda says that J.R. will protect her because of the baby. David says that Amanda is one DNA test away from being kicked to the curb. Krystal comes up and asks if everything is okay.
