Today’s show opened with Bonnie pretending to introduce herself at the children’s shelter, in many different styles (including speaking in French). This is Bonnie’s first day at the shelter (where she will begin her community service work). Bonnie imagines her work at the shelter having had a huge impact on the children, who all thank her for calling their attention to the wonders of reading. Back to reality, Bonnie tells Isaac she is excited to have the opportunity to make an impact on children’s lives. Isaac tells Bonnie not to get her hopes up, since these kids may not be what she expects. Bonnie arrives at the shelter to find that Isaac may have been right. Bonnie tells Troy, the shelter’s director that she speaks French and Italian. An unimpressed Troy immediately puts Bonnie to work making lunch for the kids. Bonnie tells Troy that she expected the children to be younger. Afterwards as Bonnie is placing the tray of food on the table inside the recreation room, she notices the books which she brought for the children, are being used to hold a table up. Removing the stack of books, Bonnie drops the tray of food on the floor. Before Bonnie goes to buy more food, Troy orders her to sweep up her mess. Later, back at Java Underground, Isaac asks Bonnie how her first day at the shelter went. Bonnie lies and says she can’t wait to go back the next day.

At the farm, Craig tells Rosanna that Barbara Ryan agreed to drop the charges against him, if he sells her Monte Carlo for $1.00. Craig tells Rosanna he agreed.

Craig tells Rosanna that he needs her and asks her to give him another chance. Rosanna agrees - only if Craig accepts Lucy and Aaron’s relationship and apologizes to both of them. Rosanna asks Craig if he understands her. Craig accepts Rosanna’s terms and agrees to allow Lucy to see Aaron, who he refers to, as “Hair Boy.” After Craig leaves, Emma asks Rosanna what happened with Craig. Rosanna tells Emma that Craig wants her back and that he is selling Monte Carlo. Rosanna also says that she already took care of her other problem (Carly).

Marshall prepares to draw up her legal papers to finalize Monte Carlo’s $1.00 sale. Barbara is not sure if she wants to pay Craig the $1.00 for Monte Carlo in cash or write a check. After Marshall leaves, Barbara talks to Paul’s picture, saying she will make everything up to him. Will pays Barbara a visit. Will, wearing a concerned look, tells his mother that if she wants, he will live with her for a while. Barbara tells Will that is not necessary. Barbara tells Will she is flying to Paris that evening to offer Paul a position in her new company and also to convince Jennifer to return home with her. Will is happy with this news. Barbara intends to put her family back together.
