JENNA and JEFFREY arrive at the club for their dinner party (with Harley and Phillip). Jeffrey-- "Our new partner is going to show us what she can do." Jenna is not happy. As Harley is getting ready to leave the diner (all dressed up), Buzz quizzes her about where she is going. He assumes that she is going out with her girlfriend. Then PHILLIP comes to pick her up. Buzz suggests that Mallett might have a problem with this. Phillip says to Harley that she and Jenna might need to rethink their plan about Jeffrey. She says that they will get rid of Jeffrey Morgan so that he will never come between Jenna and Buzz again. Later, at the Country Club, Phillip and Jeffrey decide to talk business (away from the ladies). The ladies interrupt them and we see that Buzz arrives to spy on them.

MICHELLE is screaming at JESSE because he has picked her up after she fell and hurt her ankle. He puts her down and says that he was going to take her on his motorcycle to a hospital. She doesn't know whether she should believe him or not. He tells her that she shouldn't have been there in the first place.

MARCUS and DAHLIA are discussing Michelle and assuming that she has gone to Point Lester to find her mom's heart donee. They go to find her and just as Jesse is picking her up to take her to the hospital, they spot her. Marcus is ready to fight, but Michelle stops him and goes back with them. They lecture her about going off on her own in dangerous territory. Michelle realizes her billfold is missing. They (of course) suspect that Jesse has lifted it. Later, we see Jesse picking up her wallet off the ground and removing a picture of Michelle.

MATT and DINAH are still at the graduation party. VANESSA is observing them. Michael has told her that he thinks Matt and Dinah are a couple now. She thinks he misinterpreted. She quizzes him about what he heard. She does a lot of "maybe's." They are going someplace together, he says. They do not want Bill want to know. Michael says that he heard Matt say that he loved Dinah. Vanessa listens to Matt and Dinah's conversation that makes it sound like they are a couple. Vanessa watches Matt and Dinah leave the party arm in arm. Vanessa wants to go back and see her house. While they are watching, Matt and Dinah go into the house and turn out the lights so they can be on the plan to Lucerne at 5:00 a.m. They both say they felt closer all day to Vanessa.

He is overjoyed, looking around the room and smelling her clothes. He also finds her laptop. He tells Dinah that her mother is alive and she is also ecstatic!

Michelle goes to see Jesse. He is suspicious of her visit and is hostile towards her. She thanks him for helping her the other night and invites him to the Bauer bar-b-que. He blows her off, telling her he has a hot date that night.

Matt and Dinah are told that Vanessa is not at the convent, that she went away with Michael. Matt wonders immediately about the possibility of Vanessa having become romantically involved with her Physical Therapist.
