He tells her that he knows about the genetic predisposition with his father himself, Lucky and now her. But she tells him she is not blaming genetics. She needs for someone to tell her straight if they think she has a drinking problem. It seems everybody is worried about it except for her father. He knows all too well what it’s like to be accused by everyone of having a drinking problem and that is why he is not ready to lecture her since he’s heard it himself throughout his life.
Sonny tells Connie/Kate that he got into a brawl with both Johnny and Anthony although he does not tell her the details. He smirks when he tells her that he really put them both in their place with a really shocking revelation.

And he tells her they both need to forget all about Connie Falconeri and see her only as Kate Howard.
Johnny tells Carly he does not know why she is concerned about him. They are not sleeping together nor defined as friends. But she knows that Sonny has some sort of “master plan” that hurt him.

He then gives her a copy of his birth certificate that reveals that Claudia is his biological mother and not his sister. Carly is shocked to find that out and asks if Sonny brought that to him.
Luke reflects with his daughter about having a lifelong marriage with John Barleycorn and the people all around who “only intend to help” with they step on one’s toes with concern about their drinking.

Luke admits to his daughter he does not know what is going on with her. But he knows that he does love her. She tell shim she was so determined to find a way for him to come back home. He tell s her he just wasn’t ready to come back at the time. She reminds him that he made her choose between the man she loves and her father.
Robin tells Jason maybe it’s a good thing that he’s been experiencing these symptoms for a while and it means it’s entirely possible that this is as good as it gets. He, again, does not want to worry. But she urges him to realize that they must be proactive. They should run more tests. And if the swelling does not go down, they might need to do another surgery, but he tells her that that is out of the question. He cannot be out of commission for weeks or mothers.

Elizabeth notices her and can clearly see that something is going on. Sam seems stressed and does not want to talk about it.
Sonny talks to Connie/Kate about the pasta he remembers that his friend Giorgio the chef made. They talk about how great the food was that they remember. They are happy together but Sonny knows that she has a secret that she is not telling him.
Carly tells Johnny that he must realize it’s entirely possible that Sonny used his “connections” to falsify the birth certificate. But he tells her that he confirmed it by asking Anthony and getting the truth out of him. He tells her hat throughout his entire life everybody lied to him. She tells him that Michael could say the same thing about her. He tells her that is entirely different. She did that in order to give her son a better life. She asks why Claudia and Anthony lied. He replies because Anthony was under Gino’s thumb. The only way Anthony could prevent Gino from carrying out his threat was to threaten to expose him for knocking up Anthony’s teenage daughter. So Anthony was forced to keep the secret for him. Johnny tells Carly he realizes she has every right to hate Claudia after what she did to Carly. But he loved her. She was his sister who was there for him and he sat by and watched Anthony treat her like crap. She was just a kid when all of this started. And if the one person who she counted upon had been there for Claudia, she might still be there. Carly then tells Johnny she is so sorry. He asks her what she is sorry for.
Luke tells Lulu that he’s stayed away from her in order to protect him. He tells her that Lucky, Ethan and Tracy have already been as damaged from his as they can be. But there is still hope for her. She tells her dad that all she wanted was for him to be there. He tells her he could not even be there for her mother. She asks if he believes that she is weak like her mom. He tells her that Laura was not weak and neither is she. Laura had a break down due to being pushed beyond her limit. He knows that Lulu loves so deeply and that is why she is like her mother. Lulu then tries to rationalize with her dad but cuts herself. He rushes to help her. She then cries and asks her father what is happening to her. She finally has a man who loves her. So why is she so lost? He holds her and she cries on his shoulder.
Sam comes to face Jason and the medical staff at the hospital. He asks if she is ok, knowing that she may not be. Elizabeth tells Matt (the doctor) that he needs to realize that he will have to face Maxie. He tells her that she has to get along with Maxie. But she tells him she has tried but if Maxie thinks there is something going on between the two of them, it’ s up to him to set Maxie straight.
Maxie tells Spinelli she knows that Elisabeth is coming on to her boyfriend. She is over Lucky and ready to sink her teeth into her next victim. She asks how a guy who cures cancer can be so clueless. She tells Spinelli she knows that he might have the perfect idea. He does in fact suggest that maybe the best way to beat Elizabeth at her own game is to make her jealous. He tells her that he knows how to help her with a scheme she might like to carry out.
Lulu cries and tells her dad he has to stop staying away from her because he’s afraid he’s going to hurt her. Whether he likes her or not, he is her dad. that he did as little damage as possible. He knows he is nobody’s hero. But she tells him she has seen everything and knows about him. He tells her that all he has ever wanted from her is for her to put her life together just the way she wants it to be. She tells him she wants to keep in contact with him. He tells her that even if they have their issues and even if he doesn’t always understand or tells her things she may not want to hear, she must always know that he will always be there for her. She then tells him she thinks he would be better if he were still with Tracy. Luke then indicates that his daughter just brought up something he does not want to hear. He reminds her that Tracy has chosen of her own free will to marry Anthony Zacchara. She tells him he needs to know that Tracy is not happy with that decision. She tells him that she believes she is happy to have married the man of her dreams. But she doesn’t know what her future holds.
At the hospital, Jason asks Sam why she went to the hospital by herself and did not tell him. She then wonders why he suddenly showed up at the hospital. But he does not want to answer that and tells her they need to just go home.
Johnny tells Carly he knows what Claudia put her through so he does not expect Carly to feel sorry for Claudia. She tells him that he must realize that he knows who he is and that is more important that what is on the birth certificate. He does not want to talk to her about his issues. But she tells him she wants to help him. And she will stay there as long as he needs her. In response to that, he tells her she might want to be careful what she wishes for.
