Jennifer, in whispers, asks Abby what she is doing and Abby explains that she had to make sure Jack was okay and had made it through the night. Jennifer looks at Abby with tears in her eyes as Jack eavesdrops and fights back his own tears.
Billie is enjoying a cup of coffee when Chelsea walks in. Chelsea explains that she couldnt sleep because she kept thinking about Abby and Jack. Billie tries to be consoling by bringing up how it reminds Chelsea of losing her own parents but Chelsea declares that knowing Bo and Billie are her biological parents make the issue even worse. Billie notes Chelseas sexy and midriff revealing pajamas and asks how she was able to afford them. Chelsea claims they were on sale but Billie presses the issue. Chelsea sarcastically replies that she followed the family tradition and went down to Salem Boulevard to turn some tricks for the cash. Chelsea brings up how Billie complained about her dress being cut too low the other night and Billie maintains that the dress was inappropriate for a girl Chelseas age and adds that the pajamas are inappropriate too considering they live with Patrick. Billie insists that Chelsea go put on a robe but as Chelsea reluctantly turns to do so, Patrick walks in. Patrick asks Chelsea how she is doing and she replies that shes as good as can be considering what happened last night. Billie wants to know what happened last night and Chelsea tells her about Bo picking a fight with Patrick. Billie asks Patrick why he and Bo got into a fight but before he can answer, she asks Chelsea what she did to upset Bo.
Bo comes downstairs as Hope is ordering a reluctant Zach to go back into the kitchen and finish his cereal. Bo waits to say anything until Zach finally leaves the room and then accuses Hope of taking out her anger on Zach. Hope claims that Bo is the one with the anger management problem and complains that this happens every time Bo sees Patrick. Bo points out that every time he sees Patrick, hes got his hands on Chelsea. Hope offers the theory that Chelsea wants Bo to think that Patrick is the one coming on to her. Bo, having only walked up as Chelsea was saying, thats not okay assumes that Chelsea was turning down Patricks advances. Hope points out that Patrick could have been hugging Chelsea and saying, its okay in his attempt to comfort her. Bo refuses to believe that there could be any other scenario. Hope asks Bo why he didnt ask Chelsea which she meant but then takes back her question as she sarcastically retorts that Bo would rather bump chests with Patrick than talk it over. Bo flashes back to last night when he was preparing to fight Patrick when Hope walks up and yells at him to stop. Bo insists that he was protecting Chelsea but Hope insists that Patrick wasnt harming Chelsea. Hope warns that if Bo keeps this up, hell push Chelsea right into Patricks arms.

Billie demands an answer from either Patrick or Chelsea. Patrick explains that Bo ran into him comforting Chelsea at the pier.

Bo and Hope return to the living room from the kitchen. Bo is angry at the idea that Chelsea is around Patrick but Hope points out that they are even more around each other because they live together and Bo must get used to that. Hope thinks Bo should be grateful that Patrick is giving Chelsea a roof over her head but Bo complains that hes the one who should be doing that. Hope starts to agree while she thinks that Bos motives are because Patrick is stepping on his toes as a father to Chelsea but Bo insists that its because Patrick is taking advantage of Chelsea. Bo insists that he walked up on Chelsea fighting Patrick off last night. Hope points out that Chelsea wasnt grateful to see Bo and readily accusing Patrick of attacking her but instead looked pissed off that Bo was interfering. Bo scoffs at the suggestion but asks Hope for her take on what was going on. Hope insists it was nothing romantic and reminds Bo that Chelsea was very upset over Abby and Jack. Bo complains that Patrick has a knack for always showing up at the right time. Hope moves over to sit face to face with Bo and tells him that he should concentrate on the positive and be proud of Chelsea for being there for Abby when most of the time shes a self-centered individual. They both claim the other was wrong but Hope decides that she doesnt want to argue with Bo because their problems are nowhere near the magnitude that Jack and Jennifer are facing. Hope climbs into Bos lap and they kiss and snuggle.
Jack lies awake but still so as to make Jennifer and Abby think he is still asleep.

Jack, unable to hold back the tears any longer, is forced to admit that hes awake. Abby rushes to his side and apologizes for her reaction. Jack apologizes for not telling Abby sooner. Abby promises not to bother him any more and tells him to go back to sleep for she will have breakfast waiting for him. Abby leaves to get Jack Jr. Jack asks Jennifer about what Abby said before and Jennifer now realizes that Jack has been awake the whole time. Jennifer apologizes for how it must have hurt Jack to hear that but Jack says it proved that hes always known Horton women to be the strongest and most caring mother and daughter any man could ever ask for. Jennifer starts to cry again and hugs Jack as she asks what they are going to do without him. Jennifer is surprised when Jack readily replies that hes got it all worked out. Jennifer demands to know what Jack is planning.

Once around the corner, Chelsea calls Kate. Once Kate responds to Chelsea calling in a happy manner, Chelsea turns up the charm and flatters Kate. Chelsea asks Kate to come over and Kate promises to be there in a few minutes.
Chelsea ends the call just as Billie walks up and asks whom she was talking to. Chelsea becomes offended and yells at Billie about not respecting her privacy.

Billie decides to count the fact that Chelsea called her mother as a small victory. Chelsea claims that she is as different from Billie as can be because she likes to dress up and go out. Billie points out that she felt the same when she was Chelseas age and warns that it will get her in trouble. Chelsea retorts that given her gene pool of addicts, prostitutes, and both, it doesnt matter what she wears. Billie replies that she never thought by sharing that information that Chelsea would throw it back in her face.

Austin isnt sure that hiring Sami is a good idea. Austin starts to clean up the papers on the table but Sami insists on doing it for him as a sign that she can do those sort of secretarial duties for him. Austin still doesnt think its a good idea.

Austin mentions how Samis bad reputation could damage his credibility and Sami agrees with that point. Austin still has his concerns.

Bo and Hope now lie in each others arms on the couch. Hope marvels at how everything is going right for them and shares the idea of finally getting to sail around the world again.
