Asleep on her couch, Mimi dreamed of her conversation with Philip about Shawn. When she woke up, she found a towel clad Shawn asking her for his pants. After she pulled his pants out from underneath her on the couch, he went off to get dressed while she took a phone call from Bonnie. Bonnie suggested that Mimi had better make a move on Shawn before someone else did and that the timing was perfect for them. Unfazed by Mimi's grumbling, Bonnie insisted she bring Shawn over to Alice's.
Across the hall, Philip tried to console Belle over the loss of her friendship with Mimi. Philip insisted it would all blow over and that perhaps, someday he would dance with Belle at Shawn and Mimi's wedding. Belle dropped a glass on Philip's exclamation and insisted that Mimi was still in love with Rex. Philip said he was gone and likely would not return and furthermore, he was not Mimi's first love. A jittery Belle stated that was just a crush and that Shawn and Mimi were far too different to ever get together. Philip continued to insist that they were perfect for one another, but Belle thought it would be a mistake. Philip wondered why Belle was upset and jealous. Belle responded that it wasn't jealousy, but Philip said it was all right to be jealous. When he asked if she wanted Shawn and Mimi to be happy, an upset, Belle grabbed the bag of recyclables and headed for the door. Unfortunately, she opened the door to find a dressed up Mimi and Shawn leaving their apartment. "Where are you going?" Belle asked. A grumpy Mimi told her they were going to Alice's and they hurriedly left Belle in their wake.
Later, as they were eating, Philip brought up Shawn and Mimi again. Sounding a little angry, Belle insisted that they were not dating but just lonely before she ran off due to morning sickness. When she returned, a giddy Philip told her he just talked to Bonnie who said Shawn and Mimi were having a good time.
At Alice's, Shawn and Mimi felt a little awkward with one another, so Shawn grabbed them a couple of beers. While at the bar, Bonnie told Shawn to ask Mimi to dance, and he admitted he was going to anyway. When he returned, the two began to dance together.
Nearby Jennifer asked Frankie if he was leaving because he felt like he was coming between her and Jack. Frankie insisted he was leaving because of work only and went off to break the news to his brother.
Meanwhile, Chelsea tried to order some beer at the bar before Bonnie intervened. Jennifer spotted Abby with Chelsea at the bar and marched over with a worried Jack in tow. After establishing that they did not lie about going to the movies, Chelsea said they decided to get a drink. Jennifer's eyebrows shot up, just as Bonnie brought over a pitcher of root beer. Abby asked if Chelsea could sleep over since Patrick and Billie were out of town. Jennifer inquired about Chelsea's crush on Max and offended, Abby told her mother to stop being in their business. Chelsea then told Jack and Jen about her driving lessons with Max and Patrick, neither of whom Jack approved of. Jack told the girls they could stay since they had chaperones, and then took Jennifer back on the dance floor.
Frankie told Max he was leaving and when Max pressed him about his love for Jennifer, Frankie admitted he was leaving because of Jennifer so as to avoid ruining her happy home life. Max advised Frankie not to let Jennifer go, and Frankie recommended Max find someone to love and hold on to her. After Max went off to dance with three ladies, he got in a fight with the boyfriend of one of them and they fought. The boyfriend was kicked out and Max continued to dance with the ladies.
Jack sidled up to Frankie on the dance floor and passed Jennifer over to him for a dance before going outside for some air. The two danced for a bit and Jennifer admitted she hated to see Frankie leave. Worried about Jack, Jennifer asked Frankie to go check on him.
Outside, Jack saw the boyfriend from the fight earlier returning with a knife and the two struggled over it. Frankie came outside looking for Jack and found him collapsed on the floor. Surprised, Frankie ran over to check on him just as Jack was coming to. Jack told him about the knife and that it only cut his hand. When Frankie asked why he was on the ground, Jack lied and said he faints at the sight of blood. Since Frankie clearly was not buying it, Jack broke down and told Frankie he was dying. Speechless, Frankie could only stare at Jack as he pleaded with Frankie to marry Jennifer after he dies and become his children's father. Stunned, Frankie said okay.
Back in the bar, Chelsea made up her mind to lose her virginity to Max, despite Abby's protestations. After Max's three dates refused to all go home with him together, he was left alone and Chelsea pounced, whispering in his ear.

Patrick asked for a job and Tony told him he must prove himself as a foot soldier and tell him whether anyone else had come along on the rescue mission. Before Patrick could answer, Bart dragged in a screaming Billie who was disgusted that she ever let Patrick touch her. Next, Tony brought in Caroline and Victor to reunite with Bo. When Caroline begged for the life of Bo and Hope in exchange for her own, Tony laughed and pulled out a gun with a single bullet. Grinning, Tony informed them that in order to destroy the two families, he would destroy the marriage that joined a Horton with a Brady, Bo and Hope. He gave the two the choice of who would die quickly by the bullet and who would suffer the torture of watching their spouse die. When no one spoke up, Tony said he would decide for them and pointed the gun at Hope. Bo stepped in front of Hope. Not quite ready to give up his control, Tony ordered Bart to take them to their cells. Bart began to comply, but Billie demanded to know where Georgia was. Tony snickered as he got close to Billie's face and told her how satisfying it was to know that Billie traveled the world looking for Georgia but never looked in Salem. Shocked, Billie asked who it was and Tony responded, "It is a familiar name to all."
