When Lucky gets home, he finds Maxie waiting for him. She has put candles everywhere and made tea. She says she knows where Bobbie keeps the keys and as for the rest, claims it is to make a better place for studying. While Lucky tries to teach algebra to Maxie, she keeps playing dumb and leaning into him, so finally he says that there's something going on there. She pours her heart out to him, saying that Elizabeth doesn't deserve him and she will treat him right, that she will do anything he wants, how much she cares for him, etc. He tries to gently let her know that he thinks of her as just like a kid sister, but she keeps it up, to the point of telling him that she even has birth control. He has to get more firm with her about her being like a sister, saying that he will never feel differently for her, so she gets upset and rushes out.
Elizabeth and Sarah are dressed up and going into Kelly's; they are meeting the two guys they met yesterday while running, Darren and Winthrop. Sarah tries to back out but Elizabeth insists that they stay. The two guys show up and they are nothing like the kind of guys they would date. Too geeky, I guess, since they make computer games and are really into the sport curling. So Elizabeth fakes an attack and Sarah goes along, yelling at the guys to run out quick before they get in the way of one of Elizabeth's violent spells. After they leave, the two sisters start laughing. Later, they take a magazine quiz about what their perfect guy would be like, and they both picked the category that sounds suspiciously like Lucky.
Later, Sarah witnesses Maxie running out and Lucky following, so she asks him what's going on. He loses Maxie and tells Sarah a short version of what happened. He whines that he always ends up hurting everyone who cares for him. She consoles him with a hug. Maxie watches from nearby jealously.

Of course Courtney doesn't believe anything bad about A.J. and says bad things about Carly, having heard all about Carly's past from A.J. Sonny tells her that A.J. is filling her head with lies. He says A.J. is twisted and isn't capable of loving anyone. He promised to protect Michael from him, so he will. Courtney, crying, wonders why they can't just work something out like normal people. He says that he wouldn't trust A.J. in the room alone with Michael for ten minutes. She warns him that he'd better not hurt A.J. or she'll be his enemy for life.

Monica and Alan tell A.J. that he either has to stop his plan to hurt Courtney, or they have to leave the Quartermaine mansion. They can't enable A.J. any more. Edward tries to argue with her about it. Monica says that A.J. doesn't love Michael, he's just using him as a pawn to get his grandfather's respect. Courtney comes in while she says this and asks Monica how she can say this to her own son because he really does love Michael. She says that Monica should be on his side and it's no wonder he grew up feeling unloved. Monica tells her that it's none of her business.
