She tells him to write everything down and talk to Ava. Morgan asks her not to flip on him. Diane tells him that she is committed to being on his side and is sure Ava is good for the money. She admits to him that she has a soft spot for Michael. She tells him that she feels partly responsible for Michael going to jail. She remembers how heartbroken Morgan was.

Derek turns the tables on her, and says "You're involved with Sonny's son, so why shouldn't I be involved with his ex? He thinks Carly would know about Sonny's business more than Morgan. Ava warns him to be careful. "Aren't I always?" he asks smugly.
Back at Metro Court, Franco is trying to convince Carly that he's not sleeping with Diane. Carly is still curious about the woman who was in his room on his birthday. Of course, he can't tell her that it was Heather. Carly is freaking out, and Franco almost has her calmed down about Diane. Of course, that's when Diane barges in, and says "Franco, I need you now." Carly misunderstands, and takes off.
Back at GH, Alexis and Sam go over the consequences of running the DNA test. In the end, Sam agrees to let her do it.
Michael and Kiki are still outside of Sonny's office. She feels that Morgan being with her mother is all her fault. If she hadn't lied about how she felt about him, he wouldn't be with Ava right now.

He has the legal pad still in his hand, and asks her if she has a pen. She doesn't hear him, so he goes through her purse. He finds the contract with Derek Wells's name on it.
