She tells him that Robin is the same self righteous twit she always was and only wants him for herself. He tells her that he trusts Robin. She tells him he should not.
Nikolas asks Robin if she believes that one day, Patrick will look at her and be ready for a long term relationship. She admits to him that shes never thought that far ahead and realizes that that is somewhat of a long shot. He then tells her that one thing hes learned is that people are psychic. And if you care about them, you must leave the door open for your expectations. She asks if that means that she should tell Patrick the way she really feels.

At Sonnys, Ric tells his brother that he believed for a long time, that Sonny would never get the help that he needed unless he hit rock bottom. Sonny then asks Ric if he intended to push him over the edge. Ric protests that what he did was not out of malice. He had to somehow motivate Sonny to get the help he needed before it was too late. Hearing that, Jason tells Sonny that Ric is absurd to say he wanted to help him. What he did was like putting a loaded gun in Sonnys hands.
Nikolas takes Robin back to the hospital and tells her he enjoyed the evening he spent with her. She tells him she really appreciated his being there to listen while she bored him talking about Patrick. She hugs him like a platonic friend and departs. Emily then comes and tells Nikolas shes surprised that hes ended his evening with Robin so early. He tells her that their entire conversation was about Patrick. He can clearly tell that she is in love with Patrick. She tells him its kind of odd that Patrick came and asked her many questions about her relationship with Nikolas. He concludes to her that he hopes that Patrick and Robin can resolve their differences and not deny themselves the love that they have. He looks at her and she seems very attentive to hear him talk about how some people really lose a lot of value by denying the love they have. Is he talking about Robin and Patrick or about himself and Emily?
Carly and Patrick go to the bar. She seems to know that he has Robin on the brain and may not want to risk losing her by sleeping with Carly. She reminds him that since Robin hates her guts, she may never forgive him for sleeping with her. But he admits to her that he needs to use her. And she agrees.
At Sonnys, Jason asks Sonny if he believes that there is any justification for what Ric has done. Hes done so many terrible things to him. Sonny cannot trust him. Ric then asks Sonny what this man(Jason) has ever done for him except enable him to stay sick and deny the problem he has and do nothing about it. Sonny then tells Ric hes sorry. But Jason can be trusted. Jason has never manipulated him or shown any dishonest behavior. Ric, on the other hand, has shown Sonny that he cannot be trusted with his underhanded scheming and manipulation. He concludes to Ric, that he does not want him in his life. Ric protests to his brother that he has not mean any harm. But Sonny tells Ric that he needs to go. Its what is best for both of them.
After Jason and Ric are gone, Emily comes to see Sonny and asks if he is alright. He then informs her that Ric admitted to buying the dress. And Ric explained that he did in order for Sonny to get help before its too late. He thought it was an act of tough love. She tells him she is really sorry to find that out but maybe Ric was acting in his best interests. He tells her that that is so typical of Ric to be pulling these kinds of stunts. He cannot trust him, forgive him, overlook this or take Ric back after knowing that hed do this.
Jason then goes to the bar. Calry sees him and asks what he is doing. He tells her hes just there to have a beer. She tells Patrick that shes sorry but has a change of plans. Patrick tells her he totally understands and leaves. She then tells Jason that its odd that hed be there. She knows that if he simply wanted beer, he could reach into his refrigerator at home. She knows the reason hes out is because he could not stand the thought of going home to his empty house because he misses Sam.
Right then, Sam runs into Ric at the docks. She notices him kicking a pay phone. She tells him that she just smashed some file cabinets. Realizing they are both angry, she tells him he may go first. He tells her that he admitted to Sonny that he did a pretty sleazy thing to force Sonny to get therapy. But at least it worked. Sonny is seeing Lanie and taking lithium. She tells him thats good and he should not believe he did anything wrong. He tells her that Sonny has pushed him out of his life. She tells Ric that Sonny may come around and realize that Ric only acted in his best interests. But hes worried that Sonny will never forgive him. He tells her hes asked himself what he would do if he has the same genetic predisposition to bi polar disorder as his brother has. Would he feel betrayed the way Sonny does? Or would he realize that somebody was acting out of tough love to save him? He tells her that at least he has not been enabling Sonny for years, the way Jason has been doing. Hearing him blaming Jason, Sam tells Ric that maybe he is unfair to Jason. He asks her why she keeps defending Jason after he broke up with her.
Patrick finds Robin at the hospital and tells her that he knows that she sent Jason to find him with Carly. She tells him that he is ridiculous to be accusing her of doing that. She does not care what he does. Neither does Jaosn. He tells her that she was using Nikolas in order to make him jealous. She tells him he used Carly to make her jealous. They both conclude that they did not use anybody to make the other jealous. But they both say they know they did make the other jealous.. She tells him that Carly will never be of any value in his life. She knows that he is avoiding her because she is HIV positive. And hes using Carly because she is not. They both leave. And when Elizabeth is alone and unseen, she puts some important paper in the shredder.
Sonny informs Emily that he concluded to Lanie that he believes that he is bi polar. And he agreed to let her prescribe lithium. He shows her the bottle of the prescription. She hugs him and tells him how happy she is that hes going to work to get better. He admits to her that hes not certain how much of this stuff he will have to take every day of his life or what its going to do to be dependent on this drug forever. She tells him she will be there forever, no matter what happens.
Sam tells Ric that she really does not feel comfortable with this situation involving Alexis. If she disagrees or has any problem with Alexis, then its all her(Sams) fault. Its a no-in situation with Alexis. He tells her he knows all too well the way Alexis is. She then asks him what she should do. He tells her she should stop trying so hard to live up to Alexis standards and just accept things the way they are.
Jason tells Carly that he finally got Ric to admit that he bought the dress in order to set Sonny up. Ric defended himself and said he did it in order to motivate Sonny to get help. But Sonny did not buy it and threw Ric out. Shes happy to hear that. He asks her what is going on with her and Patrick Drake. She tells him that Patrick is a way to get her mind off of Jax. He reminds her that not long ago, Jax was somebody she could not stand. She tells him that that changed. She really found out that Jax is worthwhile. They both know that Patrick will not completely meet her needs and will leave her with an empty void. They both conclude that she cannot expect Sonny to fill that void. And she tells him, in that case, the only way to keep her away from Sonny, is for her to get back with him.
