Nicole orders Sami to call a cab to the airport for her but Sami refuses. Nicole mentions her fact-finding mission about High Style as the reason for going and Sami grills her for information. Sami warns that they have to be careful when dealing with such a risk but Nicole thinks that part of being in business is about taking risks. Nicole insults Sami by comparing business risks to Samis love life risks. Sami wants to leave their personal lives out of the conversation and Nicole tells Sami that if she wants to talk about business, then she should do her job and order that cab. Austin comes out and tells Nicole that she can ride with him since he is headed to L.A. too to meet with an investor. Sami becomes suspicious and refuses to allow both Nicole and Austin to go to L.A. without her. Austin insists that going with Nicole to L.A. is strictly business and gets angry with Sami for questioning his every move. Sami insists she isnt jealous but cared because she is constantly left out of the business aspects. Nicole claims that its because Sami doesnt have the same business experience as she does but Sami brings up how she used to work at Countess Wilhelmina. Austin dismisses that job because Sami was a kid then so Sami claims that she needs to go with them to get the business experience. Austin agrees with this point and tells Sami to rush to pack her bags. Nicole complains about Sami going but blames it on having to pay for another airfare. Austin dismisses her complaint by pointing out that he has some extra frequent flyer miles. Sami heads into her bedroom to pack. Austin questions Nicole about her plans in L.A. Nicole tells him how High Styles CEO is new but is a worst businessperson than the last one since they spend a lot of money on charitable donations and share profits with employees.
Austin warns Nicole that they dont plan on taking over High Style to make it crash and burn. Nicole insists that they must get in on the company to downsize and make it lean and mean before it drags them down too. Austin wants to think that theres another strategy they havent thought of but Nicole insists that outside of High Styles product line and some of their advertising plan, the rest has to go. Austin gives Nicole permission to seek the information but warns her not to do anything illegal or underhanded while in L.A. with him. Nicole insists that she wont do that. Sami eavesdrops as she packs. Austin heads into his bedroom to get ready to leave. Sami accuses Nicole of having just lied but Nicole insists that part of having this company make it is to make Austin look like a winner. Sami agrees so Nicole tells her to stay out of her way and let her do what she does best.
Carrie and Lucas are talking about where to go to dinner when they spot the gifts Carrie ordered for the employees children that have just been delivered. Carrie introduces Becky to Lucas. Carrie resumes the talk of where to go for dinner but Becky reminds her that it would have to be something delivered because the corporate gifts rep is on their way to have Carrie choose the family gift packages she wants to hand out. Lucas is disappointed and Carrie begs for a rain check on their dinner. Lucas begs Carrie to put the gift choosing meeting off so they can go to dinner but is shocked to learn that Carrie hand signs her own holiday cards whereas Titan delegates the job to their secretaries. Carrie is surprised at how impersonal Lucas does it and Lucas claims its to save time. Carrie claims that her workers put in lots of extra time because they know they are more than just worker bees to her. Lucas suggests calling ahead to order dinner while Carrie leaves instructions for whoever will be wrapping the presents. Becky and Carrie scoff at the suggestion and Carrie explains that she wraps all the presents by hand. Becky talks up Carries ability to work through the ranks so fast because of her hands on approach. Lucas admires the items and finds a toy he used to want as a child. Becky recalls how one of the employees children has been begging for one of the same toys. Lucas is impressed that Carrie knows both the names and the birthdates of all the employees children.

Lucas decides to stay in and help Carrie wrap all the presents.
Calder, the corporate gift coordinator, finishes rattling off the list of items Carrie has picked. Lucas is amazed at how Carrie picked some great items to go into the gift packages. Carrie prefers to think of it as giving people things they wouldnt normally be able to afford. Carrie asks Calder to note her desire to add a personal note to each gift basket. Lucas asks Calder to consider Titan for his services next year as long as it is at a better price since Titan is a bigger company. When Calder immediately agrees to the deal, Lucas adds that he wants Calder to give Carrie 20% off her order, as a sign that his business is one Titan would like to patronize. Calder quickly obliges and leaves. Carrie is amazed at Lucas savvy in wheeling and dealing. They both decide that they can learn a lot from each others way of doing business. Lucas notes how they never ordered that takeout and Carrie takes him up on his offer to go out to dinner after all.
Sami and Austin arrive at the restaurant to meet with the investor. Sami and Nicole take in the view and the expensive nature of the place. Austin explains that this is all to impress the investor and will be even more beneficial because they will be seen in a place full of other movers and shakers. Sami recalls a past dinner together but Austin interrupts her to remind her that this isnt a date. Sami hopes that Nicole wont pull some lame stunt to send them to jail. Austin apologizes for sounding so harsh when he told Sami this wasnt a date. Austin assures Sami that shell get used to being single and being able to get through life on her own. Sami quips that if Carrie were in her place, Austin wouldnt be telling her that this is only a business dinner. Austin points out that he never mentioned Carrie and Sami claims she was merely thinking out loud. Austin bluntly tells her to stop. Sami jokingly insults Carrie as she describes her to Austin as her way older sister who could use some of the High Style skin products. Austin shakes his head so Sami promises to finish talk of Carrie.
