Belle mentions that she feels bad having to miss Jen and Frankies wedding for the appointment but Shawn assures her that they would understand. The couples discuss the process and Mimi comments that it would be a miracle of modern medicine if Shawn and Philip could be the ones to have the babies. Philip says he would do anything to make sure that they have another child like Claire. Absentmindedly, Mimi blurts out that she hopes it works for her because the last thing I need is for him to have another baby with another woman again.

Sami tells her that it was her fault. Shes the one who broke her wedding vows. Lexie tells Sami that she has no right to judge the situation between her and Abe. They continue arguing.

She always has something to hide. Austin admits hes right. Lucas wants them both to be happy, but he doesnt think it will work for them as a couple. He asks Austin if he sees the way Sami looks at EJ. Austin says she can look. Lucas wishes him the best. However, he asks him if Carrie didnt pick him would he still consider making Sami his wife.
