Britt tells him that she is going stir crazy and felt like she and the baby should celebrate Independence Day, too.
In another part of the park, AJ is starting a barbecue for himself, Elizabeth, and Aiden. Elizabeth comments on how she's glad that Cameron is with a friend, because he'd want to try to start the barbecue himself, but AJ tells her that if he did, AJ would make him wear a fire suit.

Nikolas asks Alexis what the dinner is for, if Alexis is giving Shawn an elegant break up. Alexis tells him that Shawn is in her life for now, on the condition that he quits working for Sonny.
Sonny thinks that Milo is quitting because he was hard on Milo for letting Lulu stay with him. Milo tells him that's not the reason at all.

Felicia asks Mac if he met Britt. Mac and Britt tell her that they met on Britt's first date with Patrick at the Floating Rib. Britt tells Felicia that Patrick was mortified that he took her there, because Patrick didn't know that she was a vegetarian. Mac says that Patrick clearly got to know her better, and Felicia suggested that perhaps this is why Patrick and Britt broke up.
Emma asks Patrick why Britt is there. Patrick explains that Britt is alone, and that she's having a hard time with the pregnancy, so it would be nice for them to share their day with Britt, and keep their eye on the baby, too.
