Vienna wonders what Henry has done and he explains that he is meeting with a lawyer to try to get some money from Gray Gerard's estate. Vienna tells Henry she doesn’t need the money because she is happy running the diner and being with him. Henry tells Vienna that he needs the money so he can live the life to which he hopes to become accustomed.

(Lakeview) Liberty twirls around in her dress and Janet, Katie and Brad all tell her she looks fantastic in her dress. Brad gives Liberty a tissue and tells her to wipe off some of her makeup and tone things down because she doesn’t need to wear that much makeup. Liberty promises not to wear so much makeup and encourages Brad and Katie to leave for their date night by gently pushing Brad out the door. Brad doesn’t want to leave because he doesn’t trust that Janet will get Liberty to the party safely. Katie tells Brad that Janet has been taking care of Liberty for a long time and everything will be fine. Brad gives Katie flowers to celebrate date night and Katie gives her husband a kiss as they head out of the hotel. Janet encourages Liberty to put on more makeup because her father is a nice guy but he knows nothing about makeup.

Faith comes downstairs and Holden compliments her on her dress and goes to get the car. Faith tells Lily she doesn’t want to go to the dance because she has a stomachache. Lily wonders why Faith doesn’t want to go to the dance and asks her if she is afraid nobody will dance with her. Faith shakes her head no so Lily asks her if she is worried all the girls will scratch her eyes out because she looks so beautiful again Faith shakes her head no. Lily wonders if Faith is worried about her relationship with Holden and Faith nods her head yes. Lily assures her daughter that things between her and Holden are fine they are just taking things slowly because they want their relationship to last a long time. Lily smiles and tells Faith that she and Holden are taking baby steps towards each other. Lily tells faith that Holden gave her flowers and her baby step is she is trying to be patient with Holden. Holden comes back inside and Faith smiles and thanks him for the flowers he gave to her then heads out to the car. Holden and Lily hope to see more smiles on Faith’s face tonight.

Jack tells Carly that the night of the Metro opening Parker spent the whole night with Liberty at the Lakeview. Carly wonders who told Jack this and he tells her he and Katie talked about it this afternoon. Carly is hurt that Parker lied to her and Jack tells her that she has to keep a tighter reign on the kids and make sure they actually are where they say they are going to be.

Jack tells Parker that they know about his night at the Lakeview with Liberty and make Parker promise to always tell them the truth.

Liberty checks herself once more and then walks the rest of the way to Al’s with her date Dylan. Dylan wonders if Janet is Liberty’s mother and tells Liberty that Janet looks hot. Liberty tells Dylan she has never seen that woman before in her life.

(Al’s Diner) Liberty arrives and Henry introduces her to Vienna who tells her Brad has told her a lot about her but she didn’t know she was so pretty. Liberty thinks Vienna is pretty enough to be a model and shouldn’t be working at a diner. Henry has heard enough and heads to meet with the lawyer from Gray Gerard's estate. Dylan tells Liberty the dance is boring so they leave and go someplace more private.

(Lakeview) Henry is surprised when Bonnie tells him that she is helping the lawyer for Gray Gerard's estate.

(Outside Al’s diner) Carly advises Lily not to force Holden or use anymore tricks on him because that will make things worse. Lily goes inside the diner but Carly stays outside because she doesn’t want to be near Jack. Jack wonders if Carly and Lily were planning another conspiracy. Carly says no they were just talking and Jack doesn’t want Carly or Lily to wreck Holden’s good mood. Carly thinks Jack is implying that she will wreck Holden’s life like she wrecked their marriage and the lives of their children. Carly goes inside and asks Holden how things are going and he says he is thinking about the good times and the bad times. Carly asks Lily how Faith is doing and he says she is waiting on some guy to ask her to dance. Lily asks Holden to dance hoping that it will encourage the kids to dance. Holden tells Lily that isn’t a good idea and they should just chaperone the dance. Lily walks across the diner to talk to Carly and tells her she feels like punching Holden. Carly tells Lily to calm down because she and Holden will be back on track and they will forget this ever happened. Lily tells Carly she will never forget this and screams at Carly to stop defending Holden. Holden walks over and asks Lily to control herself and not lose her temper at the dance. Lily screams and asks Holden if he is her husband or not and if he is her husband he should start acting like her husband. Holden leaves and Carly chases after him despite the fact that Jack tells her Lily and Holden’s marriage is none of her business. Carly finds Holden sitting on a bench nearby and he says he was such a jerk for not dancing with Lily he just didn’t want to embarrass Faith at her dance. Lily encourages Holden to explain things to Lily and work on their marriage.
