Carly is shocked to learn that Simon does not yet own the warehouse they just
broke into. He confesses that the deal will go through in the morning. The
security guard arrests them. They go to the station. Carly and Simon are put
into a room; she pulls the blinds so Jack won't see her. Simon thinks it's no
big deal that they are arrested, but she is angry. Carly admits that it was fun,
though. Jack comes in and yells at Carly for getting in trouble again. Simon
tries to take the blame, but Jack won't let him. Carly declares that she is the
one responsible. Jack can tell she's been drinking, so Simon tells him that they
were celebrating her new job with him. Jack wonders what he means, so Simon says
that he's hired Carly to design his new building. He offers to phone the current
owner so that he can seal the deal. Jack ignores him and yells for another
officer to take Simon away. Carly yells at Jack for assuming she's guilty. She
points out that she is working, but he yells at her some more. She tells him
that it's not his business, but he reminds her that they have kids together. He
asks her what she thinks a judge will do to her, since she's violated her
probation. She doesn't think it's come to that. Jack regrets telling Mike and
Katie that Simon would never sucker her because she's too smart. He guesses he
was wrong, but she tells him again that what she does is not his business. After
she tells him off, he leaves her there. Carly phones her baby sitter to ask if
they can keep the kids tonight, but she can't. A cop comes in and tells her that
she will be arraigned tomorrow, so she has to go to lockup. She tells him
frantically that she can't do that because she has kids at home and the
babysitter can't stay. He offers to call social services, but she yells that she
is not putting her kids in foster care. He leaves her alone again so she can
phone someone, but she stands there, considering her options. Jack comes in and
takes off her cuffs. Carly wonders what he did and reprimands him for helping
her. Simon comes in and tells her that it was his doing. He phoned the owner and
offered him 25 grand more in exchange for dropping the charges. Jack is forced
to uncuff Simon, too. He says nothing as he leaves. Simon tells Carly that was
fun and asks, "What's next?" She laughs. He suggests teaching her how to
hot-wire a car next, so she laughs some more. Carly admits she had fun, except
for the getting-arrested part. He apologizes. She tells him that next time they
have to keep it legal. He is glad that he didn't scare her off. They joke around
some more. She tells him that she's looking forward to this. They walk out with
his arm around her in a friendly way.
