As Tom and Emily work the phones, Emily remembers seeing Tom and Margo making love. Tom notices she looks rattled and she blames it on James. Tom reassures her-if James is after anybody, it's probably Lucinda. Eddie shows up for his first day of work as a busboy at Java. The waitress tells him about an "LFL" at one table-looking for love-who turns out to be Margo. Carly arrives at Java to retrieve her purse and sees Julia, who tells her she and Jack aren't together anymore. Jack takes Nikki into the interrogation room to discuss her intention to file assault charges against her stepmom. She tells him Carly hit her because she called her a slut. When Jack tells her not to start a war, Nikki accuses Jack of being in love with Carly, just like her father.

Emily and Tom discuss her making mistakes in relationships (namely James and son David). Tom tells her his own horror stories from before he met Margo.

Eddie confronts Margo about showing up at Java to watch him and admits to her that he's scared of messing up. Julia admits to Carly that there was something starting between her and Jack, but then Jack ran. She explains about coming to Oakdale because she helped Cal on the train and then helping Emma on the farm. Carly doesn't tell her that Jack's back in town.

Sara Ruth apologizes to Ben and tells him she honestly doesn't know where Camille is. Susan lies and tells the nurse that she gave Ben permission to look at Camille's files. Brad refuses to leave Camille alone-he knows she's scared, he tells her. But he finally leaves when Camille brushes him off.

Margo jokes with Eddie about the coffeehouse expecting him to be "poetic and sullen." He jokes back that that's how he got the job in the first place. Julia tells Carly about liking Oakdale and Carly tells her she'll be leaving Oakdale one day for someplace more exciting and glamorous. Jack tells Nikki she'll break Hal's heart if she files the charges. Hal walks in just as Jack urges her to give up. Reverend Dansby spies Camille while visiting someone in the hospital. She admits she's there for surgery. He wonders where Ben is. Ben is in the chapel at Memorial, praying and asking God to be there by her side since he can't. Susan comes upon him crying and tells him that Camille's surgeon called her from Peoria, where they'll be doing the operation in an hour. Ben hugs Susan after she gives him the address and then runs out.

Margo listens in as Eddie deals with an obnoxious latte-sipping customer. Julia tells Carly she's jealous of her for having everything. As Carly is leaving Julia asks her if she's seen Jack. Nikki tells her father she's there to file assault charges-against his wife. Carly lies and tells Julia she hasn't heard from jack. She urges Julia to move on and out of Oakdale. Margo and Eddie bond over the obnoxiousness of customers and she tells him she'll get him a punching bag. Tom's present to Emily arrives-a cappuccino maker for the office. She in turn gives him a gift-a briefcase. He kisses her on the cheek and she relives the moment. Hal wonders why Nikki didn't tell him about the slap earlier. Jack leaves them alone and warns Carly that Nikki's out for blood.

Reverend Dansby talks to Camille about letting Ben know. Carly walks in and tells Nikki she's overreacting. Nikki refuses to back down and tells Carly she's going to pay. Reverend Dansby goes to call Ben but the nurse tells Camille it's time for the surgery. She's upset that Ben won't get there in time, but just then Ben arrives and they embrace. After Nikki leaves, Hal tells Carly to tell him the whole truth about the fight. Jack has a hankering for cherry pie after his self-described "tabloid morning" and calls Emma, but Julia answers instead. He doesn't recognize her voice. Eddie thanks Margo before she leaves. The waitress tells Eddie that the "LFL" is definitely hot for him. Emily cleans up after he spills latte on himself inaugurating the cappuccino maker.
