Craig cuts the call to Ellis short when Parker arrives to ask him to cancel the debit card and make it very hard for him to have access to his trust fund. Craig wonders why Parker wants to do this and parker explains that he almost wasted his money on an expensive sports car just because he was jealous that Gabriel had one and he wants to take the temptation away so that won’t happen again. Craig tells Parker that the fact that he stopped himself from buying the car proves that he is mature enough to handle his trust fund. Craig tells Parker to think about it some more and keep the debit card and if he still feels that way after he has thought about it some more he can cancel the card. Parker tells Craig that he knows that he is hoping to get Carly back and that is why he is being so nice to him but he has got to understand that even though Jack and Carly’s relationship is a bit strained right now they are together and they intend to stay that way.

Craig tells Dusty that he always acts before he thinks about how his actions will affect all the people around him. Dusty is about to punch Craig but Carly arrives to advise Dusty not to let Craig goad him into a fight because that will only make things worse between him and Janet. Carly tells Craig to stop trying to break up Dusty and Janet hoping that Janet will return with Jack because even if that happens she (Carly) will never be with him. (Craig)

(Metro) Janet tells Terri that she blames herself and Dusty for Rocco’s death but Terri tells her that neither of them is to blame because their father always did what he wanted and neither she nor Dusty would have been able to stop him one he made up his mind. Terri tells Janet to forgive Dusty because he loves her very much. Janet tells Terri that she can’t forgive Dusty even if it wasn’t really his fault because she is afraid of him because he always acts without thinking of the consequences.

Liberty gives Parker a hug and tells him that his friendship is very important to her.

(Lakeview) Craig isn’t happy that Gabriel has moved into the room across the hall from him and he makes it clear to Gabriel that if he comes near Johnny he will pay.
