Jennifer wants to borrow Mike’s cell phone to call Will. She grabs the phone from Mike and is annoyed when his phone doesn’t work either. Mike informs her he didn’t charge the phone because he had to turn it off on the plane and he figured he would charge it when he got home. Jennifer is quite upset because she is stuck in the middle of nowhere with so many things to do. Mike tells her not to worry about the things she can’t change. He notices a white bull constellation and stops to stare up at the sky. Jennifer thinks he is strange for not worrying about their problem and using the time to stargaze.

At the hospital, Ben informs Carly and Jack that his test results are normal, which means there isn’t a physiological or neurological cause to his amnesia. Ben tells Jack and Carly that when they return to court, a judge could rule that the medical care Jack received at St. Genevieve’s was adequate. Julia arrives and starts to leave when she sees Carly, but Carly allows Julia to stay with Jack while she steps outside to talk to Ben. Jack tells Julia the good news and they share a kiss.

In the hospital hallway, Carly wonders if the fact that there is nothing medically wrong with Jack will mean he may never get his memory back. Ben tells her there is no way to tell that right now. Carly tells Ben Jack has had fragments of memories resurface, but Ben thinks he would be more optimistic if Jack had full memory flashes which built on each other. Ben encourages Carly not to give up hope, it just takes time. Carly watches Jack and Julia kiss and worries that her time to help Jack get his memory back is running out.

Jack tells Carly that he knows she isnít a mean person. Carly admits to Jack that she wanted something to be medically wrong with him so the doctors could fix it. Carly again wonders if that makes her a bad person. Jack thinks it just makes Carly a human being. Jack asks Carly to describe to him the type of man he was before the accident. Carly tells Jack that he was the type of man who everybody in the family was excited to see when he arrived at any family gathering. She tells him that Parker and Sage would always wait anxiously for him to return home from work.

The goon, who is still talking to his bookie, tells Lucy to shut her mouth or he will shut it for her. This makes Craig angry, and he reaches for a bottle on the bar and cracks the goon over the head with it. Craig looks at the goon on the floor and tells him nobody talks to his baby that way.

Inside the rental car, Mike explains to Jennifer the myth of the white bull constellation.

As punishment for his actions, the gods placed him up in the heavens as a constellation that is shaped like a white bull. Mike encourages Jennifer to step back and try to get perspective on her life. Mike thinks it’s not a crime for Jennifer to want her own life. Jennifer explains that the last time she tried to have her own life, with Jordan, Barbara helped kill Cabot.
