She tells him that she cannot pretend that that is not an issue. He tells her that the past mistakes only make him more certain of what they have together. He tells her that he believes that it would work between them. He tells her that if they do not have a legally binding commitment, then she wont have to wonder if he will come back whenever he leaves town on a business trip. Hearing that, she reminds him that she is not the only insecure person in this. He then tells her that is fair enough. But he wants to make her the happiest and most secure person in the world. She tells him that he is such a romantic but she needs to figure out how much of this is romance and how much is reality. She then asks him to look at them and all of the romantic and fun things they have done. But the one night when he asks her to be his wife, he proposes to her right on the docks.

And he tells her for himself, he is done being a playboy. He wants a life with her. Marriage or no marriage, he wants to commit to her. And he tells her he will ask her again; will she be his wife?

Sam cries and tells Jason that she knows that he wishes that things did not happen the way they did.

But she also knows that he is a realist and does not believe in denial. She tells him that he cannot hide his feelings. And now she is watching Elizabeth having everything that she has always wanted.

Michael does not respond although Morgan looks like he is considering it. Carly then asks Michael if he knows that she loves him and would never do anything that is bad for him or his brother.

Carly tells Jax that there will be one hour of romantic bliss before they are struck with a heavy dose of reality. He asks her why she believes that. She tells him he must know that Michael is way more stubborn than she is. Not long from now, he will be a step dad. They must have some rules there. He cannot just be Michael and Morgans buddy. They spend half their lives in her house that will also be Jaxs house. There must be discipline and order. And it will be good practice for when they have their own child. She tells him that Morgan is following in Michaels footsteps. Hes only four. But Michael, older, will be the biggest challenge of Jaxs life. She believes, however, that Jax will win him over.
Sam tells Sonny that she just doesnt know what to do in this situation. He tells her that he believes she must think about what she wants. If thats possible, go for it. If not, then find something else and move on. Otherwise, she will just be a victim waiting to get hurt. She then admits to him that she loves Jason and cannot see her life without him.
