Mimi and Shawn arrive at the hospital for their in vitro procedure. Mimi is feeling a bit ill; she thinks it's just nerves. Shawn says that Lexie said that this procedure with harvesting would be painless, but Mimi remembers her saying it could be uncomfortable. Mimi wonders if she'll be crankier when she's pregnant. She says she shouldn't have said when, she should have said if. She says they don't know if this will even work, Mimi has a bunch of nerves and Shawn calms her down. The nurse asks if this is their first. Shawn says yes, the first of many they hope.
They go in to the doctor's office, Mimi is on the table, and Shawn is with her. Mimi has been sedated a bit, but is awake. The doctor says it's fine and she finishes harvesting Mimi's eggs. Mimi says she didn't feel a thing. They gained five follicles, which doesn't mean five eggs. Mimi begins having worries, what if they get pregnant with far too many kids, what if she's put on bed rest and can't work. She says this is a huge responsibility, what if they are making a mistake. Shawn says it is a huge responsibility, but it's what they wanted to do. Mimi says they never got to go on their honeymoon; they may not get to Paris for 20 years now. She wants to make sure they aren't rushing into this, that they aren't being selfish. Shawn says wanting a child is a bit selfish, but they know what they are getting into and they will be great parents. Shawn tries to get her to relax, and the doctor tells her if it helps everything is going well. Mimi thinks nothing goes well for her, and the odds are only 50/50. Shawn says if it doesn't work then they'll try again.
Mimi just can't believe she'll get to be a mom and Shawn says and he can't believe he'll have a child of his own. Mimi rolls her eyes. When it comes time for Shawn to make his contribution, Mimi asks if he needs her help since he was here for her? Shawn says no thank you and walks off. Later they get news from the doctor; she was only able to successfully fertilize one egg, which means the odds just got slimmer. The doctor says they can try again though, so don't get discouraged. The doctor lets them look at the egg through the microscope and says this could be a peak of their son or daughter to be.
At Lucas' place, Carrie and Lucas are happy for Sami and Austin, but Kate is not happy at all. Kate asks Austin why he's doing this; does he remember what Sami did to him? Does he want to go there again? Kate can't believe this. Sami tells Kate that for the record she won't be going anywhere the night before her wedding or drinking anything Kate puts in front of her. Sami says this is the happiest moment of her life, but knowing what it does to her makes it just a little better. Sami says everyone is onto Kate now so there is nothing she can do to ruin this. Kate says don't be so sure of that. Kate says the woman is a monster! Kate says she's nearly destroyed everyone's lives in this room.
Carrie says everyone here has done things they aren't proud of, including Kate. Carrie says Sami has been nothing but supportive since she came back to town, and Austin says Sami is the person he knew she could always be. Kate says they are all insane. Will walks in at this point and asks what is going on? Austin says he and Sami are getting married. Will says all right. He says he approves, it's the next best thing to her marrying Dad. He says sorry for how that sounded. Kate keeps making remarks. Will tells Kate that he knows she's not happy about this, but don't ruin this for his mom. Austin tells Will that nothing will mess this up as Sami's not keeping any secrets this time. Sami flashes to blackmailing Lexie. Kate says Sami is not capable of being honest. Lucas tells his mom to knock this off otherwise he, Austin, Carrie and Will won't have anything to do with her again.
Lucas then tells Will some more good news, Carrie is pregnant. Will thinks this is awesome and tells his mom and Austin to get to work too. Will knows his mom wants more kids. Will also says not to worry about Kate, dad won't let her mess this up again. Lucas ends up asking his mom to go; she's spreading around a lot of negativity here. She says he may be right as she's feeling physically ill. Kate and Lucas go out in the hall. Kate tells Lucas that they are all making a mistake about Sami, she is a poisonous snake. She says she saved him from Sami and she will save Austin. Lucas thinks she ruined his life is what she did. Kate says well he didn't go back to Sami.
She asks if he can say he'd have been happier with Sami than he would be with Carrie. No, she says he can't. Lexie says Sami is going to make Austin miserable and she will stop her. Lucas says there is nothing to stop, and as far as he's concerned it is his mom who is poison. Lucas returns to his apartment, and Kate says she brought down Sami before and will have to do it again. Austin breaks out the champagne, and Sami thanks them all for giving her another chance, they won't regret it. She thinks today was a good omen. Sami struggles with the champagne and ends up breaking the bottle. She thinks it means bad luck for her.
