Craig and Nancy are in his office and continue to verbally bash Alice Horton. He is eating a banana and Nancy gets an idea...banana peel at the top of the stairs! She says a stroke didn't do it, maybe a nasty fall will take care of the "old doll." They decide it wouldn't work...Alice takes the elevator and besides, she would probably just get up, dust herself off and whack them with her broomstick. They decide they will have to come up with another plan. Meanwhile, Alice is chatting with Mrs. Winston about Craig. She wants him out of there...NOW! Mrs. Winston respects her and Tom's work with the hospital, but the board is happy with Craig's work. Alice feels patronized and just wishes that Mike would return to Salem. Brenda is eavesdropping and runs straight to Craig, but he gets paged and doesn't get her update.

The gang arrives at the hospital with Conner. There are some problems with insurance until Belle explains who her mom and dad are. Conner is taken to be examined as Shawn and Belle question Mimi about drugs again. She gets mad and rushes off. She finally explains everything that has happened and begs them not to tell. She realizes that Chloe knows, but Belle assures her she won't tell. She goes to be with her mom and Belle comes up with a plan. She tells Shawn about her idea with Habitat for Humanity and he laughs at the thought of her climbing a ladder with a hammer. He finally comes around and agrees it is a good idea. They see Alice and tell her about what is going on (and she tells Shawn about his mom and dad bringing the baby in earlier).

Belle calls the Habitat for Humanity organization for details (at this time of night???...yea, right), but finds out there is a problem. In the ER, Craig examines Conner and releases him. He and Nancy find out about the plight of the Lockharts and Mimi says that Nancy is probably happy about their misfortune. She tells Nancy not to worry about her...she should be concerned about her daughter. Nancy wonders where Chloe is and becomes upset. As the Lockharts leave, Alice wants to help and offers Mrs. Lockhart some money for the night, which she accepts reluctantly and gratefully. Alice says that they are going to figure out something to help them. Brenda finally gets Craig alone to give him her update, as Nancy rushes off to find Chloe.

At the school, Chloe and Philip continue their conversation. Jan and Jason are listening and begin to panic that Philip will tell all. Chloe and Philip have a really sweet talk as she admits to him it was her first date and he tells her that he had a great time, despite everything that happened. Jan breaks it up by chanting "ghoul girl...ghoul girl..." Phil tells her to shut her face and he and Jason get into a brawl. They fight for a good while and Jason warns him not to tell. Philip tells him to take his 2-faced girlfriend and get out of there and they leave. Chloe is impressed that someone defended her honor. Philip says since it was her first date...how about another first and leans in to kiss her. She pulls back, confused. They talk some more and he goes to kiss her again. This time, Nancy rushes in and stops them, telling Chloe she is going home...NOW.

Eric and Nicole meet in the park. She tells him that even though she lied to him about a lot of things, one thing is true...she has always loved him. Eric isn't in the mood to hear this, but she tells him that she has important news for him. She starts to explain about her past, but he interrupts, telling her that he knows. She tells him that she had an HIV test and it was negative. He tells her that he has been scared ever since he found out about the movie. She goes on to tell him that he is okay, but she will pay for her sins. He tries to get her to talk about how she got into it, but she doesn't tell him anything. She tells him that he is a good guy to still care, but the best thing he can do is to forget about her and that she ever existed. With that, she turns and leaves. After she is gone, Eric is more determined than ever to get to the truth. He says that if his dad won't help him, he will just have to do it on his own. Earlier, Victor had called Rex and told him to get Nicole's last million ASAP. Anyway, on her way home, Nicole runs into Rex, who has a copy of the video. He wants to talk and they end up at the Blue Note.

At the Kiriakis mansion, Kate and Lucas are at it again lamenting their troubles. Victor walks in and tells them to get their priorities straight. Sami is working against them and they must stop her. Victor has hired a PI and found out that someone is snooping around at the strip club asking questions, about that Angela chick and is sure that Sami is involved somehow. He also knows that Roman was there snooping but the police department turned down his request to reopen the case. He tells Lucas to find out if Sami is planning any trips (to track down Angela). Meanwhile at the Blue Note, Rex works Nicole for the million dollars. He lies and tells her that her 5 mil has already made 25 and wants the last million...in return for the tape.

She finally caves and writes him a check. He tells her that he has fallen in love with her and wants her to run away with him when this is all over. She tells him in his dreams and leaves. He calls Victor and tells him the news and he whispers to Kate that Nicole is taken care of...now on to Sami. Meanwhile, Sami is home packing her suitcase, plotting her revenge against Kate and Lucas. She hates that she lied to Austin, but will do anything to get Will back. Lucas calls and offers to let her have Will for the weekend. She turns him down, explaining that she is working extra shifts at the hospital, but Lucas smells a rat. He gets off the phone and Victor is suspicious as well. He tells Kate and Lucas that they are to snoop around and find out if Sami is taking any time off and that he has a fool proof plan. As she finishes packing, Sami says that she can't wait to get Kate and Lucas where she wants them...on death row. She will look them in the eyes and say "GOTCHA"!

Nancy fumes as she watches Craig and Chloe continue to bond. After Chloe leaves, Craig complains about Alice at the hospital but Nancy suggests that it's there fault for not getting involved in a charity or public problem.
