At Katies house, Mike gets a call from someone on his construction crew telling him there is a problem with the Fairwinds job. Mike gives the man instructions on how to handle the problem but then gets frustrated and decides to go down and handle the problem himself. Katie, who has been distracting Mike by kissing him while he is on the phone, asks him to stay a while longer so they can have a romantic morning. Mike is annoyed that B.J. is such a perfectionist and demands the best. He tells Katie he cant stay and spend the morning. Katie goes to kiss Mike on the cheek but he avoids her kiss, and Katie wonders what other reason has Mike in such a rotten mood. Mike explains that it didnt help his mood to come home yesterday and find B.J. dancing with his girlfriend. Katie thinks she was right and Mike is jealous of B.J., like she has always suspected.
At the Lakeview, Dusty arrives to see how Jennifer is doing after the devastating news that she isnt the mother of Gwens baby. Dusty apologizes to Jennifer for pushing her so hard to search for the baby. Jennifer tells Dusty that he didnt push her into anything; they both believed so strongly that her baby was alive that they almost willed the baby to be alive. Jennifer thinks it's time they both face reality and get on with their lives. Dusty doesnt think they should go through this pain alone.
At Java, Emily tells Paul she thinks this whole mess is finally over and everything turned out for the best. Paul is worried that Craig might someday tell Jennifer the truth, just because he is in jail and has nothing to lose by telling Jennifer the truth. Emily doesnt think Craig would ever do that, because he switched the babies because he didnt want Jennifer to raise his son. Will arrives with the baby and tells Paul he must talk to him alone. Emily gives Paul a little kiss and tells Will to stop by the apartment to visit, because she misses him. Emily looks at the baby and pinches his cheek before she leaves the restaurant. Paul asks Will to try to forgive Emily, because she really misses his friendship. Will tells Paul he doesnt want to talk about Emily, but he does need to ask him for his help.
At Iriss house, Iris is upset that Gwen allowed Will to take the baby for a walk. Gwen makes it clear that Will is her friend and she trusts him with the baby. Iris reminds Gwen that the only reason she has custody of the baby is because of her, so she should stop acting so high and mighty with her. The doorbell rings, and Iris is not thrilled to see Carly at her door.
At Katies place, Katie gives Mike a kiss and tells him he doesnt have anything to worry about because he was right--B.J. is harmless. Katie tells Mike B.J. has a classic case of arrested development. Mike tells Katie he thinks B.J. asked Henry to pretend his car needed fixing just to get him out of the house so he could be alone with her. Katie doesnt believe that theory could be true, because Henry is her friend and he would never do something like that to her. Mike tells Katie that B.J. had better be harmless, because if he has a hidden agenda involving her then they are both going to quit their jobs.
At the Lakeview, Jennifer explains to Dusty that she needs to learn to be an independent woman again, because their relationship started out as friendship, but then she began to use him as a crutch in order to be able to survive the pain of losing her baby. Dusty is afraid that Jennifer may go back to using drugs to survive the pain if she doesnt have his support as a friend. Jennifer assures Dusty that she wont go back to drugs, because all they did was erase all her memories for a while, and she wants to have a clear head so she can remember the few precious hours she spent with her child before he died. Jennifer tells Dusty she has become the one thing she hates, which is a victim, and she doesnt want to be a victim for the rest of her life like her mother. Dusty gives Jennifer as much time off from work as she needs to accept her babys death.
At Java, Will asks Paul to take care of the baby if he and Gwen have to go to jail. Paul is startled and gets nervous when he hears Will's request. Paul tells Will he doesnt have to think about that right now because he isnt even sure the D.A. will press charges against them.. Paul promises Will that he will get the best team of lawyers to make sure that he and Gwen dont go to jail. Will tells Paul he just wants to make sure Gwens mother Iris doesnt raise the baby.

Maddie arrives looking for Henry, and B.J. asks Katie to help Henry set things up downstairs and he will keep Maddie company. Maddie asks B.J. why he had her fired from the TV station if he thought she was doing a great job. B.J. explains to Maddie he was just trying to help her learn the life lesson that actions have consequences. B.J. makes it clear to Maddie that the next time she disobeys his orders or even thinks about revealing his identity to Katie, someone else will have to pay the consequences.
At the Lakeview, Dusty tells Jennifer she is nothing like her mother, because she is much stronger then Barbara.

At Java, Paul asks Will if he is hungry because he wants to change the subject and talk about something else. Will says he would like a muffin and some coffee.

Paul refuses to hold the baby, and Will assures him he wont bite and gives him the baby. Paul holds the baby at arms' length and starts to feel guilty about keeping him a secret from Jennifer.

At Fairwinds, B.J. gives Maddie back her job at the station, since they have come to an understanding.

Katie offers to send the package back for him, but B.J. sends her back downstairs to help Henry. B.J. orders Maddie to take the package upstairs, and when she says she will be glad to give it back to the deliveryman and tell him about the mistake, B.J. tells Maddie he doesnt pay her to think, he pays her to follow orders. Maddie goes upstairs with the package and daydreams that Katie is at a party with B.J. and B.J. has turned Mike into a robot butler.

At Pauls place, Paul tells Emily he held the baby today and he realized that his nephew is growing up across town while his sister is grieving for a child she thinks is dead.
