(Farm) Meg wonders why Mike is dressed in a suit to work out in the fields and Mike explains he is wearing a suit because he is going to a meeting at the cooperate office in Chicago today. Meg wonders why Paul isnít going to the meeting since he always handles all the cooperate meetings and Mike jokes with Meg and says Paul who as a way to let her know Paul hasnít been to work lately.

(Fairwinds) Paul remembers Meg walking out of Metro with Mike when she saw him (Paul) dancing with Sofie. Sofie who arrives because she is worried that Paul hasnít gone to the office yet interrupts Paulís thoughts of Meg. Paul assures Sofie he is fine and she shouldnít have made the trip all the way to his house to check on him because she could have called him on the phone. Sofie tells Paul she had to see him and give him a gift to show her appreciation for everything he has done for her. Sofie also tells Paul that she enjoyed dancing with him at Metro and hopes that now that he has broken the ice they can go out on a date.

(Farm) Meg wonders if Mike is keeping Paul out of the meeting because of her and he assures her that it has nothing to do with her it just makes life easier for everyone if Paulís only function in the project is to sign the checks. Mike guesses that seeing Paul at Metro the other night really affected Meg but she doesnít respond to his question.

(Fairwinds) Paul wonders what Sofie has for him and she sits on the couch and gives him a small box, which holds cuff links, which she designed for him. Sofie explains that she wanted to thank him for dancing with her the other night and helping her feel like she belonged for the first time in her life. Paul appreciates the thought but doesnít think Sofie should hurt her sales by giving him the cuff links and suggests that she sell them. Sofie is hurt and tells Paul she doesnít want to sell the cuff links because she designed them for him. Paul doesnít think that dancing with Sofie is anything that merits a gift but Sofie tells him that she wants him to have the cuff links so that he will know how special the night at Metro was to her.

(Lakeview) Katie and Brad kiss in med for a few minutes and Brad wants to spend all morning making love since they donít have to go to work until the afternoon. Brad suggests they call in sick to work and order room service and he also tells Katie not to worry about Liberty because she will be fine alone for a few hours. Katie loves the idea and wishes they could do it but they canít ignore their responsibilities. Katie doesnít think itís a good idea they leave Liberty alone because Liberty has a knack for getting into trouble when she is left alone. Brad thinks that if Katie was so worried about leaving Liberty alone she should have told Janet to leave town. Katie thinks that they did the right thing asking Janet to leave because Liberty has been acting out and Janet isnít a good influence on her. Katie gets dressed to go to work and suggests that Brad have breakfast with Liberty and then bring her by the studio in the afternoon.

(Old Town) Liberty talks to Dylan and Judd and tells them she has a room to herself at the Lakeview and they can hang out sometime if they are lucky. Janet arrives and tells Liberty and the guys that they should try the perperkakar at Alís diner because it is very good. Dylan and Judd wonder how Janet knows Liberty and she tells they guys she knows Liberty better then anyone because she is her mother. The boys are shocked they look at Janet for a few minutes and then just say cool. Dylan tells Judd they should leave so that Liberty and Janet could talk. Liberty is annoyed that her mom scared off her friends but Janet assures her the guys will be back because she is very cute. Liberty gets a call from Brad on her cell phone but doesnít answer his call. Liberty wonders why her mother is back in town and Janet explains that she drove all night in a lousy car just to get back to her because she missed her and thought that she might need her.

(Lakeview) Brad wonders why Liberty isnít answering her phone but leaves Liberty a message to let him know if she would like to have breakfast with him and then go to the studio. Brad thinks that Liberty is in the shower that is probably why she didnít answer the phone. Katie tells Brad that unless she hears otherwise she will expect to see Brad and Liberty at the studio. Brad tells Katie to wait because he has to tell her something important and Katie wonders if she should be worried. Brad thanks Katie for being so nice to Liberty and he is happy that she seems to care about Liberty. Katie tells Brad that she does care about Liberty and Brad thinks Liberty is lucky to have Katie in her life. Brad also thinks that he is very lucky to have her in his life and Katie smiles and tells Brad she has a soft spot for him and then Brad and Katie kiss before she leaves for work.

(Old Town) Liberty knows that the real reason she came back to town is because of Brad and tells Janet she can go take a shower in her room as soon as she admits that Brad is the reason she returned to Oakdale. Janet doesnít say word just smiles and hugs Liberty as they walk to the hotel.

(Farm)Meg admits to Mike that it did bother her to see Paul and Sofie dancing together at Metro. Meg tells Mike she thought that it was Paulís childish way of making her feel jealous.

Katie gets upset when guys from the crew are watching the tape of the day Janet forced her way onto Oakdale now. Katie takes the remote and turns off the tape and Henry gives Katie a knowing look as if to say that she just proved her point. Katie tells Henry it isnít that she doesnít like Janet there is just something about her she doesnít trust because Janet is a very unpredictable person. Katie tells Henry that Janet has already left town because she asked Brad to send Janet back home he listened to her reasons why and agreed Janet should go home.
