Belle puts Will’s baseball cards back into the chest and she and Shawn make a deal not to talk about Sami for the rest of the night. Shawn complains about how it is so hot and Belle suggests that he open the window. Shawn does so as he takes off his shirt.

Shawn notices a charge at a toy store and Belle explains that she bought a present for Mimi to cheer her up. The topic of conversation turns to how Mimi and Rex are doing.
