Sally excuses herself and reports to Adam and Macy in the other room that Kimberly is in need of help and is lonely but Sally is sold on the fact that Kimberly should be told about Sally and Macy.

Thorne and Brooke get seated at Mannequins when Brooke notices Ridge and Taylor walking in. Brooke wants to leave but Thorne talks her out of it. Brooke fumes when she spots Ridge's hands all over Taylor.

Adam and Macy convince the only way to be free of this is to tell Kimberly the truth. Macy wants to be the one to tell her they are sisters. Adam wants to be with Kimberly when she's told but agrees to let Macy drop the bomb by herself. Macy preps Kimberly and warns her she is about to go through another change.

Amber assures Rick that she and Raymond were only friends but Rick thinks there's something more to it. Raymond represents a time in Amber's life she would just soon forget. Her life is being Amber Forrester now and she doesn't want to think about the way her life was when she knew Raymond. Amber wants to prove she belongs in Rick's world by having Rick take her out to dinner at the Cafe' Ruse. Rick reminds his wife he doesn't care where she is from but Amber just wants to make Rick proud of her and show him how much she loves him.

Meanwhile at Insomnia, Raymond runs into C.J. and says it is time he had a heart to heart with Rick. Raymond wants this situation with the baby settled once and for all but C.J. warns against spilling the beans. If Raymond starts making accusations now and the baby turns out to be Rick's, this whole thing will blow up in Amber's face for nothing. The only person's feelings they should be concerned about is the baby's, Raymond says.

Eric expresses his concerns about Rick's marriage while Stephanie feels Rick's sense of responsibility and commitment to Amber and the baby demonstrates his maturity. Eric is still against the marriage since Rick is only seventeen and statistically Rick and Amber don't stand a chance. On a different note, Stephanie has never felt so good about Ridge and Taylor's marriage and hopes Brooke is sincere about not causing problems anymore.

Ridge admits Brooke seems to have laid down the sword, but does Taylor believe her? Taylor thinks Brooke was sincere and fully understands her. Brooke was as honest and sorry as any person could have been and that made Taylor see a whole new side of Brooke. Brooke was completely convinced she and Ridge were meant to be together and only Brooke could make Ridge happy. Now after seeing Ridge and Taylor at Mannequins and hearing first hand that Taylor is expecting, Brooke seems to have finally realized that Ridge is happy with Taylor. What is remarkable is that Brooke chose to tell Taylor the fight is over. Brooke had a dream she truly believed in but is now letting go of that dream. Taylor has never felt such compassion toward another person and wishes there was something she could do to help.

Stephanie checks up on Rick and asks him how he is doing. Rick admits he sometimes wishes he could wake up and everything would be different. At Insomnia, Amber catches up with Raymond and Raymond advises Amber to get her head out of the clouds and admit the baby she is carrying could be his. Amber refuses to acknowledge that fact. Raymond will not buy that the baby is Rick's until there is a blood test. The baby could be Raymond and if Amber isn't going to tell Rick, Raymond will.
