Rex is offended by the teasing and tells Shawn that he is doing some research to try and find out what is wrong with Mimi. Shawn asks if Rex has had any luck.

Rex helps himself to another cup of coffee as he says that he isnt crazy about going to the wedding either, even if he is half-brother to both the bride and the groom. Rex cant understand why he is going when Sami hates him and doesnt want him there. Shawn points out that Sami doesnt like anyone and that Sami even asked Belle to be her matron of honor when she doesnt even like Belle. Rex asks Shawn if he is taking Belle to the wedding. Shawn says he would like to but he doesnt think it would be a good idea for everyone to find out that they are back together before Belle has a chance to tell Philip.

Theres a knock at the door and Eugenia wonders who that could be. Eugenia complains to Dino about how she gets a visitor when she looks like something Dino drug in. Eugenia peaks through the peephole in the door and asks if the visitor is a friend or a foe. Eugenia sees that it is a man holding a goody basket and decides that it is a friend. Eugenia opens the door and greets the deliveryman by telling him that he probably has the wrong apartment because no one ever sends her a goody basket. The man reads Eugenias name off the card. Eugenia confirms that that is she and lets the man into her apartment to drop off the basket. Eugenia signs for the delivery and tries to tip the man but the man looks around the rundown apartment and decides that Eugenia needs the money more than him. The man leaves and Eugenia calls after him to thank him for making her day. Eugenia brings Dino over to look at the basket. Eugenia notes how all of the stuff is high quality. Eugenia puts Dino back on the bed as she reads the card from Kate who refers to Eugenia as her best partner in crime. Eugenia tucks the card into her robe, considering it an insurance policy. Eugenia marvels at how Kate can be so mean to Sami but turn around and be sweet to her. Eugenia digs into the basket.
Kate continues to eavesdrop from the bedroom. Sami tries to convince Lucas that Kate is the only person evil enough to set them up like this. Brandon agrees with Sami. Sami implores Lucas to remember all of the things that Kate has done to her.

Lucas asks Kate if she set up Sami and Brandon so hed call off the wedding. Kate pretends to be shocked at the question. Sami yells at Kate to tell Lucas about how she set her and Brandon up to make it look like they slept together the night before the wedding. Kate says that it is true; she is totally responsible for Lucas finding Sami and Brandon in bed together.
Philip asks Jake what he is talking about because Philips tour of duty doesnt end for months. Jake tells Philip about how Lieutenant Bilbo is looking for a good man to lead a team into enemy territory. Jake starts to mention what would happen to whoever did this and Philip interrupts to add that it would only happen if that person made it out alive. Jake continues to say that the leader would then get to go on leave to report their findings to the Pentagon. Philip is surprised to hear about the Pentagon. Jake tells Philip that while its a dangerous mission, Philip has the right training and background to do a good job and if he wants the job, to just say the word. Philip realizes that this means hed also be getting to go home to Belle. Jake points out that then he and Belle would get to have a real honeymoon. Jake hears the Lieutenant coming.

Dino growls as Eugenia gets the wrapping off of the basket. Eugenia laughs as she says sorry to Dino since he cant have any of the goodies. The phone rings and it is Marguerite.

Mimi tells Belle about how she keeps trying to tell Rex about the abortion but every time, all Rex does is forgive her before she can get the words out. Belle suggests that Rex really might forgive Mimi since he is the one who said he didnt want to start a family yet.
