Susan arrives at the sanitarium with Emily and Alison. Alison and Emily offer to go with Susan, but she wants to speak to Rick alone. Ricks psychiatrist warns Susan that Rick has had a psychotic breakdown. Rick (who is wearing a straight jacket) is silent when Susan arrives. Seeing Rick in this state, Susan feels that perhaps he is faking, but the doctor assures her that Rick is not. Frustrated, Susan decides it is useless to try and question Rick in this condition. Suddenly Rick calls out Susans name. Rick says he knew she would come back to him. Susan tells Rick she has come to question him and she wants the truth.

Jennifer visits Hal at the station to find out who made the 911 call from Java Underground. Hal asks Jennifer why she wants to know. Jennifer says she is personally involved. Alarmed, Hal warns Jennifer to keep away from Dusty. Jennifer explains that Craig and Dusty blame her and Paul for calling the cops on them.

Dusty informs Craig that Rose threw him out. Dusty and Craig now share a beer and agree that Oakdale is full of controlling women. Dusty says that whoever crossed him, he will get back at. Dusty reminds Craig that they must get these charges dismissed so they can make Java Underground a success. Dusty asks Craig why he seems more happy and calm since their bust. Craig says that due to the police charges, his and Rosannas plans to adopt were ruined. Craig says he feels relieved since he does not want a baby in his life. Craig also tells Dusty that Rosanna asked him to stop his business relationship with him, but he refused. As Dusty goes to bring in more beer, Jennifer arrives and tells Craig that she has proof that he called the police. As Jennifer is telling Dusty this news, Rosanna walks in and hears this.
Rosanna visits Paul at his apartment. Obviously uncomfortable, Rosanna tells Paul that she came to ask him something serious. Paul tells Rosanna that since she seems upset, it must be about Craig. Paul informs Rosanna that Craig just visited him, so he assumes that is why she is here. Rosanna is surprised. Rosanna says that Craig must have thought that he (Paul) tipped off the police about his gambling plans. Paul bluntly says to Rosanna that he did not call the cops, since that would have ruined their chances to adopt. Paul tells Rosanna he would never hurt her like that. Rosanna apologizes to Paul for accusing him. Paul thanks Rosanna for being a true friend to him. Rosanna kisses Paul on the cheek and leaves. James now appears in Pauls dream. James suggests to Paul that he could have used Rosanna to come between Dusty and Craig, but he (Paul) had to fall for her instead. James suggests that Paul ruin Craig Montgomery.
