Brad is at Carly's house and he is asking her to marry him or he will tell Rosanna that John Dixon is not Parker's father. Carly refuses and says that she does not believe he will tell Rosanna. He takes out his cell phone to call her sister and Carly begs him not to tell Rosanna. He says that he won't, but he will make a call to Hal. Then she will not only lose the money but she will lose her son, also. And, Hal will have to arrest her for defrauding Rosanna. Just as he is dialing the phone, the door bell rings and Hal comes in with a box of baby things and toys for Parker. Carly looks at Brad and accuses him of calling Hal already. Brad denies it and says that he must be living right. Hal wants to know what is going on between the two of them and Carly tells Hal to ignore Brad, he is just a trouble maker. Hal explains that the box of things that he has was some stuff that he had bought when Carly got pregnant and he thought that Parker could use it now. Hal tells Carly that in case she hadn't heard, he and Barbara are getting re-married. He looks at the box of baby things and says that their children are all older and they are not planning on having anymore babies. Brad says to Hal, "you never know, life gives us surprises." Carly looks at Brad and asks if he doesn't have something to do and Brad says that he can take a hint, he will go and check on Parker. Hal looks down again at the box of things and says that he got a little carried away with buying, but he was so excited when he thought.....Carly finishes his sentence, "you were Parker's daddy?" She apologizes to Hal for that and she wishes him well with Barbara. He says to that everything worked out just like it was supposed to, no loose ends. Carly says, "no loose ends." Brad walks in with Parker and says, "look who is all wide eyed and bushy tailed." Carly says that she hopes that he didn't wake him up and Brad says that he was sitting in his crib playing. Brad brings him over and says that Parker saw the toys right away, he must have some detective blood in him. Brad asks Hal if he would like to hold Parker and Carly says that Hal has to leave. Hal says that he could hold him just for a minute. Carly is getting nervous and Brad asks her if she can see that Parker looks a little like Hal. Carly tells him to stop it. Hal, once again, wants to know what is going on with the two of them and Carly tells Hal that she has a little bit of news herself. Right before Hal came in, Brad had asked her to marry him and she was about to give him the answer. She says that she will marry him and Brad asks her if she is for real, no crossed fingers? Carly flashes him a look.

Rita is asking Reid if he is the father of Lily Snyder's baby? She shows Reid that the baby is going to have a transfusion and Holden is not the father. Reid wants to know if the Snyder's know this yet and she says that they will know soon. He tells her to take the papers back before someone sees them missing. She says that this is not news to him, he already knew about this. She says, "don't get mad, get even." He tells her again to take the papers back and she says, "I, I sir" and salutes him.

Jack wants Julia to give up her therapist. Julia says that she can't live without Reid, she wants Jack to be proud of her. He says that he is proud of her and there are many more therapist that she could go to. Julia is getting upset and she tells Jack to stop it, she is not going to choose between him and Reid.

Reid come into the office and sees that Julia is shaken up. He tells her to sit down with him and talk about it. She tells him that Jack wants her to give up on using him as a therapist. She says that Jack thinks that she has switched her addiction to Reid. Reid asks Julia that maybe there is something going on with Jack. He asks her if it is possible that Jack is interested in someone else and he is finding fault in Julia to cover up his guilt? She doesn't think that is it, he just wants her to choose. She says something about choosing when she was a small child. Reid wants to talk about it, but she doesn't. He presses her to talk about it. She tells him that when she was little, her mother made her choose between her mother and her father. She chose to live with her mother and hardly saw her father after that. She says that he could be remarried with children of his own. She tells Reid that she only wants to feel that safe and protected feeling that fathers give to their daughters. Julia is very emotional about talking about this and Reid comes to her and gives her a hug and tells her that she is protected, he is there for her. Reid tells her that they had a good session today and she should go home and take some time to think about everything that they had talked about. She looks at him and says, " I can't give you up."

Bob and Ben are discussing the results of the test. Bob says that he has known Lily and Holden all their lives and Lily could not have conceived this child with anyone else.

They want to know why and he tells them that she has a rare blood type and they can get some blood from the hospital blood bank. Lily looks worried and Bob tells her not to worry, the blood at the hospital is tested very well and everything will be OK. They tell Lily that she can't be with Hope while the transfusion is going on, but they will take good care of her. They take Hope and Lily turns to Holden and he takes her into his arms. Bob tells Lily and Holden how the transfusion will help Hope, but eventually, she will have to have a bone marrow transplant. They talk about Luc possibly being a donor, but he is her half-brother and he may not be a match. They can go to the hospital data base to find a donor.

Lily comes out to get Holden to come and see their daughter. Jack gets up to leave, he starts one way and then stops and says, "she doesn't need me bugging her right now" and heads off in a different direction. Ben and Bob watch as Lily and Holden go by them.

She asks him if he is nervous and he says that he is just going to tell the court what he saw at the club when Gary was running it. Georgia comes in and she is holding an envelope and says that she has some information on Eddie's new boss. (At this point, I was interrupted by a news report and didn't get to find out what info she found on him.) A drunk guy starts to hit on Georgia and Eddie intervenes and escorts the drunk outside. Georgia is watching from the door and Katie comes up behind her and says how Eddie will come to the rescue for anybody. Eddie comes back in and asks Georgia if the guy hurt her and she says that she is OK. Alec is listening to them. Eddie tells the girls about when he was young, Dina would bring drunk guys home with her and they would start smacking her around and there was nothing that he could do about it.

A guy comes in and asks for Denise. Katie tells him that she isn't there right now. He gives her a note from Gary to give to Denise and he leaves. Katie reads the note and gets a smile on her face.

She says that there is some discrepancy in the paperwork and she just wants to clear up something. She asks about the blood work done on Hope and Lily and Holden tell her that Hope has rare blood type and they needed to take blood from the hospital blood bank. Rita looks at them with a questionable look on her face and asks if that is all of the story. They don't understand what she is looking for and she ends the conversation abruptly and leaves. Lily says that she does not trust her. Holden asks Lily if she thinks that it is strange that neither of them have the same blood type as Hope. He questions this and they decide to go see Susan and ask her about this. Susan suggest that they go to Ben and talk to him about it and follow what he has to say. After they talk to Susan, Lily remembers that she was supposed to have a meeting with her mothers neurologist. Holden tells her to go and he will take care of Hope and Luc. After she is gone, Holden goes back to Susan and ask about who he has to see about looking at his daughters medical file. She tells him to go see Ben.

She advises Ben to tell Holden about the results. Holden sticks his head in the door and asks if he can talk to Ben. Denise says good-bye. Holden tells Ben that he knows that something is going on and he demands Ben to tell him. Ben says that they found something in the first blood test. They took a second one and the same thing came up. Holden wants to know what they found. Ben says to him, "Holden, you are not the father of Lily's baby."

Bob and Susan are talking about how many hours they have been working. Chris is around the corner listening to them. Bob asks Susan what she is going to do this evening.
