Craig asks Johnny if he has been playing with papers on or inside his desk but Johnny tells him that he hasn’t been playing in or around his desk. Craig worries that someone could have discovered he has been taking money from Parker’s trust fund and if anyone finds out he could be in trouble. Barbara arrives at the bar and sees Henry with Vienna and starts to leave but Vienna tells Henry that it is time she made peace with Barbara and invites her for a drink. Barbara doesn’t think that is a good idea and neither does Henry so Barbara tells Henry and Vienna she is waiting for a date but she really isn’t waiting on anyone. Barbara sees Craig getting off the elevator and calls him over Craig is confused when Barbara goes to sit with him and starts asking him about Monte Carlo and how the company is doing and he also wonders why Barbara is being nice to him. Henry is jealous of Craig and Vienna tells him that Barbara has questionable taste in men. Vienna wants to go to another restaurant to eat but Henry tells her that he wants to order oysters and champagne and go upstairs to his room and he makes sure to say it loudly so Barbara can hear him. Vienna tells Henry that she will order the oysters and champagne and while Henry waits on her he interrupts Craig and Barbara’s conversation and takes Barbara aside to talk to her about Craig. Barbara tells Henry she understands he wants to be with Vienna so she is moving on with her life. Henry tells Barbara that she doesn’t have to try and make him jealous with Craig but Barbara insists that she isn’t trying to make him jealous she is only having some fun. Vienna tells Henry she doesn’t want to wait for him anymore and she takes Henry by the arm and they head to the elevator with their champagne and oysters.

(Carly’s house) Janet’s doctor isn’t available so Carly’s doctor is kind enough to make a house call and check on Janet. The doctor asks everyone but Janet’s husband to leave the room so she can examine Janet but Dusty doesn’t want to leave the room and Jack wants him to leave and they argue back and forth about who should leave the room. Carly puts an end to the argument by suggesting the doctor and Janet go upstairs for the examination since it is quiet up there and Janet will be more comfortable for the examination. Dusty and jack argue about which one of them should help Janet upstairs and Carly once again puts an end to the argument by telling the guys that she and the doctor will help Janet walk up the stairs to the room. Carly tells Dusty and Jack to calm down and wait until the doctor has examined Janet once Carly goes upstairs Dusty and Jack give each other a “see what you did” look and then turn away from each other as they both anxiously wait for news about Janet’s condition. Once upstairs Carly helps Janet get into her bed and Janet admits to Carly that this whole situation makes her feel awkward Carly tells Janet that she feels the same way but she will do anything for the sake of the baby. Janet asks Carly to reassure Dusty because he is probably more scared then he seems because before Jennifer died the doctors told him she was going to be okay and then she died. Carly wonders why Janet isn’t worried about how Jack feels and Janet tells her that she isn’t worried about Jack because Jack has her (Carly) to reassure him but Dusty only has her in his life. Carly goes downstairs and tells Dusty and Jack that the doctor is still examining Janet but cramps are normal in the first months of pregnancy and the doctor will probably just suggest that Janet get some rest. Dusty tells Carly that he would rather hear that from the doctor and then he and Jack begin to argue because Jack thinks that Carly knows what she is talking about sine she has had children of her own. The doctor comes down and tells everyone that Janet is fine but just as a precaution she should stay in bed for two days and avoids stress Carly repeats that louder so the guys can hear it and then walks the doctor to the door. Dusty wants to take Janet to his place and take care of her but Jack reminds her the doctor just told them that Janet should stay in bed and not move Jack thinks Janet should stay there for two days something that surprises Carly but she takes it all in stride and says that Janet can stay for two days since both Jack and Dusty agree that it is what is best for Janet. Dusty goes upstairs to see Janet and Jack wonders if Carly is okay with all of this Carly admits that this isn’t the best situation for her but she will do anything for the baby. Janet tells Dusty that she feels awkward staying in Carly’s bed and in her house but Dusty tells her it is what is best for the baby. Dusty reminds Janet that soon they will be a happy family living in their beautiful dream house. Janet smiles when she hears Dusty refer to the baby as his child and then she gives him a kiss and Jack sees them and waits until they are finished to enter the room. Jack wonders if Janet wants something to drink and she says she would love some tea but Dusty says caffeine is bad for the baby so Jack offers some hot chocolate and Dusty and jack argue about which drink is best for the baby. Carly arrives sees that Janet looks stressed and tells the guys to go downstairs and let Janet rest. Dusty and Jack continue the argument downstairs and Carly once again puts a stop to it by saying she is going out to buy some groceries and she will buy some decaffeinated hot chocolate. Carly tells Dusty and Jack if they are going to keep arguing then they should do it quietly so that Janet doesn’t hear them.
