Austin corrects Billie by claiming that Sami and Nicole are working for him but Billie doesnt see that as any better off. Austin insists he knows what he is doing and wants to take Billie inside the apartment to show her but Billie stops him. Billie tries to talk Austin out of hiring Sami and Nicole but Austin believes that they both are quite talented. Austin gets Billie to agree to trust him to handle Sami and Nicole. Austin heads down in the elevator to put the items hed been carrying in the car.
Sami is still angry that she wasnt included in the business dinner and Nicole claims that they were talking business that would have been over Samis head. Sami mimics Nicoles flirtatious advances that she overhead in the park as proof that it wasnt all business. Sami wants Nicole to admit that shes trying to seduce Austin but Nicole denies it. Sami complains that Nicole keeps trying to convince Austin to leave Sami out of the pitch session because of her past as Stan. Nicole considers it a legitimate concern and Sami questions whether nurse Nicole should attend either. Sami insists that she wants to be more than the assistant and has some good ideas that Austin can use. Nicole tries to dismiss them but Sami begs to be able to voice her ideas. Nicole turns her down with a sarcastic comment about needing to close the pitch deal whereas Sami cant even close her own wedding. Sami threatens to go to Austin personally with her ideas and even threatens to tell Austin about Nicoles part in Chloes scars as a way to get Nicole to listen to the ideas. Nicole tells Sami that she doesnt want to hear any of her ideas and doesnt care if Sami tells Austin about her misdeeds because shell then reveal that Stan told her to do it and then theyd both end up fired. Sami sees that as proof that Nicole is after Austin and calls her a slut. Sami and Nicole argue over which of them Austin came back for. Sami flashes back to one of her past attempts to get married with Austin. Nicole taunts Sami with the flashback of her last failed attempt to marry Austin.
Sami declares to Nicole that Austin came back to Salem for her just as Billie makes her presence known by slamming the door. Billie tells Sami that she is delusional if she thinks that Austin is still interested in her. Billie explains that she saw Austin in the hall and gave him hell for hiring the both of them. Billie admits that Nicole did a good job managing Countess Wilhelmina when she worked at Titan. Sami complains that she didnt get such a glowing compliment about her time at Titan and tries to play the martyr by mentioning the use of her apartment and loss of privacy. Billie tells Sami that Austin only hired her because he was feeling sorry for her. Sami insists it was because she needed a job. Billie warns both Sami and Nicole that if either of them tries to bring their personal baggage into Austins life, theyll have to answer to her. Austin clears his throat to announce his presence and Billie claims she was only wishing Sami and Nicole good luck. Austin suggests to Billie that they head up on the roof to catch up and he and Billie leave. Sami complains that Billie hates them and if she had her way, neither of them would end up with Austin.
Nicole insists that Billie doesnt have any say in who Austin loves or doesnt love. Nicole heads into her bedroom to work alone and Sami sits down at her desk to work on the computer. Sami wishes she knew what Billie and Austin were talking about and realizes that Austin could be telling Billie the name of the woman that he loves. Sami climbs out onto the fire escape and climbs up the ladder. Halfway up, she spots Nicole above her who had the same idea. Sami grabs Nicoles foot and orders her to stay put as Sami climbs up the ladder enough to be at the same level as Nicole. Sami uses Nicoles fear of heights to distract her long enough to climb past her and get ahead on the ladder. Nicole makes her way up the ladder.
Austin questions Billie about her conversation with Sami and Nicole and Billie claims she was only telling them to work hard for Austin in certain ways. Austin insists he can take care of himself. Billie bluntly tells Austin that Sami and Nicole want to jump his bones. Austin assures Billie that if either Sami or Nicole becomes a problem then they will be fired and insists that he is here to stay. They hug again and Billie asks Austin why he came back to Salem. Austin hints at coming back home to start a family and Billie delights in grilling Austin about the girl in his life. Austin hesitates to answer and Nicole and Sami duck down out of sight after reaching the top of the ladder.
Sami and Nicole fight over who should remain on the ladder. Nicoles foot slips and Sami clamps her hand over Nicoles mouth to keep her from screaming as the inner ladder extension slides down with them on it. Austin and Billie hear the sound of the fire escape ladder release but Billie credits it to an old stray cat that liked to knock the lever loose with his paw. Austin wants to check anyway but Billie refuses to let him leave until he reveals who he is in love with. Austin refuses to tell Billie the name until he gets his business up and running and even refuses to deny that its either Sami or Nicole. Billie decides that its okay as long as Austin is happy and hugs him.
Sami and Nicole return to the apartment and argue over whose fault it was that they missed out on hearing who Austin is in love with. Sami claims that Austin is only using Nicole to further his company and Nicole smacks Sami with a pillow before heading into her room. Sami vows to show Austin that she is the perfect partner for business and for life.
