Matt and Ellen enjoy a romantic breakfast at the Recovery Room. Rachel enters, and, spying the two in a cuddly embrace, invites herself to join them for their meal. Rachel tries again to convince Ellen to visit Julie, but she refuses. The psychiatrist reiterates that Julie has proclaimed her innocence and wants to make amends with the people she has hurt. Matt grows angry at this proposition, and he grows even angrier when the conversation turns to Chris Ramsey. Matt calls Chris a deceitful, manipulative liar and declares that he will do anything for money--even if it puts his patients in harm's way. Matt advises Rachel to watch her back around Chris, and she promises to take that under consideration.

Later, after both Ellen and Rachel have left for the hospital, Matt spots Joe working in the restaurant. He questions him, and he informs Matt that Frank no longer works there. Therefore, Joe is filling in until his mom and Mike (the co-owner, from GH) can find a replacement. The talk soon turns to Karen, and Joe expresses his desire for the two of them to reunite. Matt told him to go for it, and, as if on cue, Karen comes into the restaurant. Joe informs her that the place is short-staffed, and she volunteers to help him out. Meanwhile, Lucy and Scott prepare to take their daughters out to lunch.

Scott bought 300,000 shares of DV's company after the fashion show debacle. The two now think they have what they need to take over DV's entire company, so they want to celebrate. While they're getting ready, though, each receives a phone call from Julie. She is begging for a second chance, but both Scott and Lucy refuse and strongly urge her not to call again. Later, Lucy asks Serena if she wants to bring Dirty Kitty along to the Recovery Room, but Serena informs her parents that she does not need the stuffed toy so much anymore. Lucy and Scott remark how grown-up the young girl is getting, and the four set off, leaving the cat behind. At the hospital, Rachel takes a call from Julie. She's upset about everyone's rejection of her, but the doctor urges her to give it time because she "knows how to take care of people like Scott and Lucy."

Afterward, Rachel told Chris all the bad things Matt said about him that morning. Chris gets upset and storms off in a huff. Rachel then runs into Ellen and tries again to convince her to see Julie. Ellen says no yet again, but Rachel "playfully" warns her that she is not above resorting to bribery to get what she wants. At approximately the same time, Chris runs into Matt and, tired of his condescending remarks, told him that Ellen slept with Sebastian. Matt seems truly shocked, and the hurt is evident in his eyes as he later asks Ellen if what Chris said is true.

Back at the Recovery Room, Karen is pleasantly surprised to see that her first customers will be her own family. Joe takes Serena back to help him cook, and Karen told Lucy and Scott that things are improving between her and Joe, albeit very slowly. She has decided that he does indeed deserve a second chance. This comment reminds Lucy of her earlier conversation with Julie, but Scott warns both her and Karen that supporting Julie is not a very good idea. When Rachel visits Julie at Ferncliff, she brought her some fragrant lotions as a gift. Julie thanks the doctor, but she is still frustrated by how unwilling everyone is to help her. Rachel repeats her earlier statement that people will come around, particularly Scott and Lucy. Meanwhile, the Baldwins return home to discover that their home has been robbed. Scott checks to make sure the intruder is gone, then he reports that nothing valuable is missing. He suggests that it may have just been a teenage prank, but Serena suddenly realizes that Dirty Kitty is gone. The family searches, but to no avail. Lucy rushes off to comfort a devastated Serena.

Alone, Scott reasons that because the toy is the only missing item, the burglar had to be someone who knew them well. Immediately, one man pops into his mind: David Vordisso.
