Everyone is setting up at the TV Studio for the Basic Black fashion show. Barry is showing Jennifer where she and Jack will be standing. Jack is trying to rush out on stage to meet up with Jennifer but Kate rushes to give him some script revisions. Jack has trouble with the revisions and Kate begs Jennifer to go over it with Jack. Jennifer takes the script revisions and explains the terminology to him. Jack is still nervous but Jennifer tries to reassure him. She tells Jack that if he weren’t here, she wouldn’t be able to do this. Jack teases Jennifer by asking her to do a demonstration of some of these words later if he agrees to stand by her side. Jennifer playfully slaps him.

Nicole is packing her makeup bag talking about how she hasn’t modeled in so long as Brady watches and waits to head to the fashion show with her. Brady teases her about the amount of makeup she is bringing and Nicole hands Brady the box telling him that men are so clueless. They start to head out the door to leave when Victor calls out to ask Nicole where she is going.

Cassie is backstage at the fashion show, dressed in a barely there outfit of a white bra and panties and a frilly robe with feathers along the edges. She complains about wanting to wear something sexier and Belle tells her that if she wore anything sexier, she’d be naked. Cassie wants something with more feathers or color and insults Belle for designing it. Belle walks away from Cassie counting to herself to help keep her temper.

Belle continues to pace in the hall counting when Shawn walks up and asks if it is Cassie that has upset her. Belle tells Shawn that if she could have found another size 0, Cassie wouldn’t be in this fashion show. Shawn asks about such a thing as a size 0 and Belle explains that it’s a trick of the trade, making women think they’re skinny so they’ll buy more. Shawn lets Belle know that he is proud of her and Belle is worried that many girls will be chasing after him when they see him in the pajama bottoms she picked out for him to wear. Shawn tells Belle that he’ll tell all those girls chasing after him, that he loves her. They put their heads together and hold hands as Philip walks up to see them. Belle and Shawn walk off not having seen Philip. Philip starts to go into the women’s dressing room already dressed in a dark green Hawaiian print type bathing suit. He meets Cassie in her sexy lingerie at the door, looks her up and down and smiles.

Bo, Hope, and Zack are dining at the Brady Pub where they give Zack a pair of tom toms that they picked up for him at the reservation. Lucas walks up to them and says that he heard they had an explosive time at the reservation. Bo asks how Lucas heard about this and Lucas shows them the fax of the picture of Hope at the reservation store. Bo now admits to it and asks Lucas so what as he hands Lucas back the picture. Lucas starts to yell at Bo and Hope about being on the verge of making the biggest deal of his life for Tony and thanks to them, his whole deal blew up…literally.

Rex is standing by the elevator in the hospital when Sami comes out of the elevator. Rex confronts her to tell her to forget about seeing Tony. Sami threatens to make an announcement over the PA that Tony isn’t Rex and Cassie’s real father if he doesn’t stop trying to tell her when she can see Tony. She starts to leave but Rex grabs her arm and tells her to shut up. Sami looks at Rex with a scared and shocked expression.

Nicole and Brady come back inside the Kiriakis mansion as Brady tries to explain that Kate and Belle need Nicole to model in the fashion show today. Victor claims that Kate will survive without seeing Nicole half dressed. Nicole says that Victor is afraid she might enjoy herself for once. Brady wants to know if that is true but Victor tells him not to meddle in things he doesn’t understand. He tells Brady that he’d like to discuss this in private with his wife. Brady tells Nicole he’ll wait for her and Nicole follows Victor into the living room. Victor threatens Nicole with telling Brady that Nicole is a killer. They fight about the fashion show. Victor puts his foot down about Nicole not being in the show and Nicole claims he lives to make her miserable. Victor tells her it’s what she richly deserves. Nicole storms out of the room in tears as she tells Brady who was waiting in the foyer that she isn’t going. She goes up the stairs as she thanks Brady for caring. Brady goes into the living room to tell Victor that he never knew his grandfather could be such a stone cold son of a bitch.

Cassie covers herself and tells Philip that this is the women’s dressing room. Philip claims he got a little lost backstage. He compliments Cassie about how she looks but Cassie tells him not to flatter her. Philip claims she helps calm him down. Cassie wants to know why Philip is doing the show if he is so nervous but Philip says he did it because Belle asked him to. Cassie brings up Philip’s feelings for Belle but Philip implores her to stop it. Kate comes up and pushes Cassie out of the way as she tells Philip that he doesn’t have time to chat, that they are waiting for him in wardrobe. Philip leaves and Kate tells Cassie to stop running down the hallways half naked coming on to all the men. Cassie complains about how dopey it looks so Kate suggests she get a job as a pole dancer so she can wear a g-string. Cassie takes offense and Kate tells her that she is not Philip’s type. Cassie wants to know how she knows this and Kate says it’s “Mommy’s Intuition” and walks away. Cassie mocks her and says that she prays Kate never finds out that she and Rex are her kids too.

Sami frees herself from Rex’s grasp. Rex warns her to keep quiet. Sami tells Rex that she hasn’t told anyone yet but if he doesn’t stop manhandling her. Rex promises that he will do anything to protect himself and Cassie. Rex accuses Sami of trying to string Tony and Lucas along at the same time. Sami claims that Rex is just jealous, threatening him to either find a way to be nice to her or he’ll be a Brady.

Bo and Hope yell back at Lucas about the harm that could have been caused. Lucas explains that he was trying to impress his boss but now he’s going to end up looking like a loser again, thanks to them and storms out of the Pub. Bo and Hope exchange glances.

Victor puts his drink down as Brady tells him that he has always looked up to him in his life but seeing how he treats Nicole makes him lose a lot of respect for him. Victor warns Brady to not get involved in his relationship with Nicole. Brady asks Victor if he thought he wouldn’t notice how Victor treats Nicole, asking him if this is how he wants to live the rest of his life, being bitter and angry. Brady warns Victor that that bitterness will kill you and asks if it does, will anyone even care.

Philip catches up to Cassie again and flirts with her. Cassie closes her robe around her and begs him to stop flirting with her. Philip asks if Cassie would like to get a latte after the show.

Philip walks up to Belle to talk to her. Belle tells him again that his gift was great. Philip asks Belle for advice about whether or not he’s the kind of guy that girls would go out with. Belle reassures him that he is a total hunk and then notices that he is watching Cassie talk to the crew guy. Belle implores Philip to do himself a favor and forget about Cassie. Belle goes back to the rack of clothes she was working on when Shawn comes in with Marlena and John. Belle is glad to see them and Marlena teases John about being ready for his close-up. Belle assures John that he’ll love what he’s wearing. Marlena says she will too and John and Marlena giggle and kiss. Shawn and Belle smile as they watch Marlena and John and Shawn kisses Belle’s forehead.

Lucas is visiting with Alice in her kitchen. She offers him some lemonade to cool him down. Alice asks Lucas to represent the family and say a few words at the fashion show. Lucas doesn’t believe her because he is working for Tony and a lot of people think he made a deal with the devil. Alice says she is aware of that and Lucas says he’d choose money and power over respect. Alice recalls how she shared her life with a man who had all that and love. Lucas laments that they don’t make them like Alice and Tom anymore, that Tom’s shoes are way too big for him to ever fill. Alice advises him that he can do anything if he believes in himself. Lucas suggests that he needs someone besides his grandma to believe in him.

Sami leaves a message with the nurse to let Tony know that she was here if he wakes up for she has something important to tell him. Rex watches Sami talk to the nurse and Sami glares at him as she walks away from the desk. Rex walks up and grabs her arm and Sami tells him to stop doing that. Rex threatens her with more than a bruise on her arm if she doesn’t shut up. Sami threatens Rex again to tell Tony that Roman is Rex and Cassie’s real father. Rex calls Sami a bitch. Sami suggests that Rex stay out of her face if he can’t be nicer to her and bids him goodbye and leaves. Rex uses the hospital pay phone to call and leave a message for Mimi that starts off sweet claiming he can’t make it without her but then he gets angry and yells about at least Mimi call and let him know when she gets back as he slams down the phone.

Brady apologizes for being so harsh but Victor tells him not to take it back if he meant it.
