And they tell her she must sign on the dotted line. She then agrees and they all raise their glasses to propose a toast to new beginnings. She tells them that sometimes she is a wimp about new beginnings. They tell her that there is nothing wrong with having caution. She concludes that this will be a good way to get over Patrick because hes clearly gotten rid of her. They then tell her that they have seen that Patrick does look at her when he sees her. But they all realize that when hes out with the guys, the farthest thing from his mind is a commitment with any woman.
At the bar, Ric tells Nikolas, Patrick, Lucky and Max that he believes that Sonnys worst mistake was to get mixed up with Emily. She is too sweet and pure. Nikolas agrees with that.
