In Jason's hospital room, Maxie intrudes on Jason and Sam and tells them that she lost/misplaced the ring again. Jason says he will buy another ring. Maxie insists she will find it, she says the ring called Sam's name.
Carly and Shawn run into each other at Kelly's Diner.
In her hospital room, Kristina tells Molly, Michael and Alexis that she has decided to have the surgery. Alexis ushers Molly out of the room leaving Michael with Kristina. Kristina says it was Ethan who convinced her to have the surgery (to remove the bone fragment pressing on her spine).
Skye is looking over her much ransacked living space (I'm guessing it's a hotel room). Unintentionally, Ethan walks in and startles her. Ethan is very upset to see her room like that and warns her that if Anthony sees her as a threat, she's dead. Ethan offers to get her out of that place.
Kristina and Michael talk about Sonny and he tells her he's going to be an enforcer for "coffee beans" working in the "legit" side of the business.
Shawn and Carly are talking at Kelly's, at first standing, to continue their conversation, they take a table together. Shawn is renting the room above the diner. Carly tells Shawn she has a job for him at PCU, teaching.
In Sam's room, Maxie has brought wedding cake samples for Jason and Sam to taste. The cakes are from Luzetta's Bakery, where Anthony intends to move drugs, yikes. They talk about the missing ring; Maxie puts her foot down about Jason getting a new one. Maxie expresses her concern about Spinelli/Jackal PI to Sam and Jason. She feels he is losing touch with reality, then announces that Spinelli will be Jason's best man. Jason and Sam look at each other like "Oh hell no" and that fun background music plays.
At Kelly's Shawn and Carly are discussing the job she got for him. She wants him to check it out. He says he doesn't want favors. Carly complains that he can do nice things for her but she can't for him. She makes fun of his pride and says wants a good reason why he shouldn't take the teaching job. He explains he may not be able to commit. Shawn tells Carly to go visit Jason.
Jason and Sam are clearly shocked that Maxie has decided Spinelli should be Jason's best man. Sam tells Maxie she should have asked first. Maxie points out there is a time crunch and tells them they are obligated to help Spinelli get back to normal. Maxie changed the subject back to wedding talk saying they need to talk about bride's maid's dresses. Sam said K and Molly have picked them out, to which Maxie says they have no fashion sense. Sam says we have enough to think about for one day, bye-bye. Sam gets up and shoos Maxie from the room, leaving Jason on his own.
Liz is looking at Siobhan's records. Matt walks up to and asks her if she's alright. Liz is thinking about how close Jason came to dying. Maxie walks up neurotic from losing Sam's engagement ring. Matt has a picnic planned on the hospital roof. Maxie asks for a rain check so she can go look for Spinelli. She runs off. Matt asks Liz if she wants to go on a picnic.

Liz and Matt have a picnic on the hospital roof. Liz observes his plan for a special occasion for Maxie and implies that Matt was going to ask Maxie to marry him. He quickly corrects her that it was a celebration on getting published for his research. He was disappointed that he was sharing this news with Liz and not Maxie.
Embracing, Sam and Alexis say they love each other then go into Kristina's room to discuss wedding plans with her sisters. Sam expresses her anxiety about Maxie to Alexis, Kristina and Molly. They go all wedding planner on her asking if flowers and dress fittings have been organized and make a joke in the end because it's already planned out for her. They all hug.
Carly visits Jason in the hospital. She says she was freaking out because she didn't think he would remember her. He asks her what she needs (Carly always needs something). She asks why he assumes this and states that she can get through her life without him, "for a day or two".
Carly makes sarcastic remarks about the wedding still being on and God forbid Sam would postpone it. They gett serious and Carly reminds him that he woke up a different person with the AJ accident and tells him that everyone was scared.
Michael asks for Abby's honest opinion on coffees, she samples 3 flavors and gives a one word review for each coffee. Her simple comments made for good fun and Abby challenges Michael to sample with better descriptions. Michael takes a taste and gives a long dissertation of flavors as a joke.
