(Holden and Lilyís house) Lily suggests to Holden they invite Carly over and have an impromptu BBQ at their house. Holden isnít thrilled about the idea, but Lily calls Carly anyway. Carly lies to Lily and tells her that Jack came over and she and the kids are having their own BBQ. Lily is disappointed, but understanding, and wishes Carly a happy 4th of July. Carly sits on the couch bored because Metro is closed and Jack took Parker on a fishing trip. Mike comes over to ask Carly to think about selling Henry half of Metro. Carly tells Mike she knows she is crazy to turn down Henryís offer, because it would mean she would have more time with the kids, but the answer is still no. Carly explains to Mike that the kids are at camp and Parker is working, so she needs to keep busy at Metro. Mike tells Carly that he understands the need to keep busy to fill the space of something that is missing. Mike tells Carly that he also hasnít got a personal life so he fills his life with work. Carly asks Mike to stay and calls Lily back to ask her if she can come to the BBQ and bring a friend. Lily is thrilled because she thinks Carly has a new boyfriend. Carly tells Lily that her date is handsome but he is a surprise and she wonít know who he is until they arrive at the house.

Holden tells Carly it feels wrong for him to have feelings for her because she used to be Jackís wife.
