Eli was angry for a long time but understands now that she was just trying to protect him. Valerie wants Eli to have the chance to fall in love with his child. Eli insists that the baby is not his. Eli trusts Lani so if she says it's not his then it's not. Eli adds that Lani knows he wouldn't back away from responsibility if it was.

Sonny asks about Marlena's or Lucas just getting out of rehab. Will says those are filled with family pictures and memory lanes but he doesn't want that.

Sonny informs him that he gave that to him the night he proposed and he still feels the same way about him.
