Kristen thinks it will be impossible for Bridget to forgive him after everything Deacon put her through. C.J. tries to break down the walls he built between him and Bridget, but she is very leery. "You must care or you wouldn't have thrown this party for me with all my family and friends", he pleads. He tells her things will be different. She forgives him and Sally breaks in and asks what they are doing, are they coming to the party or not. They all head downstairs. When downstairs they toast C.J. He takes her aside to thank her. "You Forrester's go all out, he states. Bridget asks why he lumps the Forrester's together, think of me as Bridget, she asks. He agrees and apologizes. Bridget has a surprise for him.

At home, Erica suggested to Rick that she bring Little Eric over for a visit with Zende. She admitted that she had used Zende in order to meet Amber. She also admitted that she felt guilty because she had used Zende. She revealed to Rick that it was the type of thing her mother would do-use people to get whatever she wants. She told Rick that she does not want to turn into her mother. She revealed without realizing it sometimes, her mother does influence her, as in the night she wore the red dress-it was her mother's idea!

Taylor asked Amber if she were absolutely certain that nothing happened between her and Lance the night she had passed out at the Forrester party? Amber was completely certain. When Amber repeated her story, Taylor was certain that Lance would have had time to put a drug into her drink-the "date rape drug." Taylor recommended that Amber undergo a drug test immediately to find out if she was indeed drugged. Amber was certain that she was drugged because there was no other explanation for what happened to her.

When Amber telephoned Rick, Erica answered the telephone. Erica would not allow Amber to speak with Rick. Amber warned Erica that the truth about what happened on the evening in question would soon come out and she would soon kick Erica out of her home. Erica responded to Amber by advising her if she really loves Rick she would leave him alone. Amber was hopeful she would obtain the results of her drug test, prove herself innocent of any wrong doing and reunify with her family!

Ziggy also told Taylor that Lance was willing to do anything for large amounts of money. Ziggy let it slip out that he did not want to rat on Lance. Ziggy realized that he told Taylor more than he should have. Taylor explained to Ziggy that she was only trying to obtain answers for a friend, about Lance, who needs the answers to put her marriage back together.

In Rick's office, Amber told Rick that she does not want Little Eric around Erica any longer. Amber told Rick that she was drugged the night of the party. Rick did not not believe her because her drug test had no drugs in it. Amber was adamant although there was no drugs in her test-that's because she took the test too late. Amber felt strongly that Erica is responsible for her being drugged. She even went so far as to accuse Erica for being responsible for Lance's death. Amber explained that Erica is the only person who had the motivation to ruin her and Rick's marriage-she wants Rick!

Ziggy tells Sheila that a strange woman had come around asking questions about Lance. He also says that this woman gave him one of her cards. Somewhat unnerved but trying not to show it, Sheila takes the card and sees that it belongs to Taylor Haynes. She tells Ziggy, it doesn't matter if Taylor is asking questions, because there is nothing in Lance's apartment that can connect him to Sheila in any way. Ziggy tells Sheila, yes there is! When Sheila demands to know that the "something is", Ziggy tells her it's the money that she gave Lance; the $10.000. Sheila tells Ziggy to go to Lance's apartment and get the money. Ziggy refuses, telling Sheila he won't get involved in her schemes. Sheila demands the pass key and at first, Ziggy refuses to give it to her. However, there's something about the way Sheila looks at him that lets him know she's not kidding around and he gives her the key.

Taylor and Amber discuss Amber's failed attempt to get Rick to believe that Amber may have been drugged and thus explaining the reason why she woke up in Lance's bed. Amber tells Taylor that Rick seemed like he was leaning toward accepting her story until Amber mentioned her suspicions about Erica being behind drugging her. At that point, she tells Taylor, Rick stopped listening to her. Amber is so upset because her hopes that her drug test might prove her statements have been dashed and she is sure that Erica is after her husband but she can't prove it. Taylor tells Amber she may be able to offer her some help. Taylor tells Amber that she went to Lance's apartment to look around and talk to people who knew him to see if she could learn anything new. She also tried to get into his apartment, but the landlord (Ziggy) wouldn't let her in. Amber tells Taylor she is grateful that Taylor is supporting her. Taylor says that Amber's behavior doesn't fit the profile of a drug user and until they get to the truth, she will continue to support Amber.

Erica spends a lot of time trying to convince Rick that he needs to wake up and stop being so gullible where Amber is concerned. She says all the statements Amber is making don't make sense and are just more of the same lies she's told over and over again. Rick says not all of Amber's story is hard to believe; with the exception of Amber's belief that Erica had anything to do with her memory lapse and behavior. Erica is furious that Amber is trying to create doubt about her in Rick's eyes. She tells Rick she can't understand why Amber hates her so much. All she wants is what's best for Rick and Little Eric. Erica insists it's not her fault that Amber is throwing away the best thing in her life. She goes on to tell Rick that she feels sad that he won't allow himself to accept that he doesn't need Amber to move forward with his life. Erica tells Rick she needs to go out and makes it clear that she's going to look for Amber to give her a talking to about the things she has been saying about her.

Sheila goes to Lance's apartment to look for the money. She finds it with no difficulty. While giving the apartment a thorough wipe down to get rid of any fingerprints she may have left, she hears a voice behind her ask, "What are you doing in here?" Without turning around, Sheila realizes the voice belongs to Taylor.
