When he calls Tammy, Lizzie warns that the phone is probably bugged. Jon says he knows what he is doing. He says, "You are my wife and you must trust me and respect me as your husband." He reaches Tammy, who is having dinner with Cassie at Company. They talk in riddles in order to arrange a meeting. Throughout their conversation they both keep focusing on the word "need" over and over. Meanwhile, Beth has called Lizzie (after finding out about the wedding from Rick), insisting she come see her about her marriage. Lizzie tells Jon that Beth's freaking out so she must go see her. Jon insists that he go along. Lizzie says that he can leave when Tammy calls him. As they are leaving their suite, Lizzie notices Jon has forgotten to take his phone but doesn't tell him.

Lizzie tells Jon that Beth is now on their side and all is well. When they are leaving, Jon realizes he has forgotten his cell phone. Tammy is leaving him another message as Remy approaches her.

Josh asks if that means they aren't going to be friends anymore. Cassie says no, but his troubles with Reva should be off-limits conversation. Josh tells her that true friends don't have limits on what they can and can't discuss. He leaves angry. He ends up at Outskirts where he is determined to get drunk. He is quite successful and begins picking a fight with the guy next to him at the bar. Gary the bartender calls to warn Reva about Josh's behavior. She says she'll be right there until she notices Cassie and decides to send Cassie instead. Cassie comes to Josh's rescue and they leave the bar together.

Reva mentions to Billy that everyone needs someone like him; that is why Josh needs Cassie. At that point, Josh arrives with the divorce papers. After he is gone, a forlorn Reva is reading over the papers but concedes to Billy that she just wants Josh to be happy. Suddenly, Reva sees a financial disclosure closure clause in the document and gets upset--Josh will know about all her medical expenses. This freaks Reva out since the whole idea was to hide her condition from Josh; when he sees all of her money went to, he will figure out the truth. Billy offers to give her some money to replenish her account but she refuses since she knows he does not have that much cash and, besides, Josh will notice if he sells stocks.

Cassie is having lunch with Mel when Josh calls telling her he just dropped off the divorce papers. He suggests that they meet each other downtown--the site of their first official date--to celebrate his being a free man. Cassie is not too convinced that this is going to go through, but agrees. She wonders to Mel if she shouldn't take things slow, but Mel urges her to go see Josh. Later, Lia arrives and joins Cassie and Mel. Out of the blue, Lia talks about how she recently remembered that Richard's heart was in Rick's chest. If it wasn't for the power of love, she would have never been born.

Josh returns to pick up the papers and Reva is forced to admit she has not signed them yet. She cannot really give him a reason; she assures him that she is not stalling, the divorce will go through, it is just complicated. Josh gets angry and rants that with her it is always complicated. When Billy tries to calm him down, Josh yells at him to butt out , prompting Reva to intercede. When she promises to call Josh later, he leaves in a huff. Later, Billy assures Reva that they will make her money situation work and tucks her into bed. Reva asks him to stay with her.

An upset Josh is at Main Street hen Cassie arrives with newly bought baklava to celebrate his newly minted bachelorhood. Josh is a little surprised at her turnaround and she mentions that she had a reality check. Josh kisses her without telling her the truth.

Rick meets Beth at her room at the Beacon. Beth asks how his dinner with Mel went and he replied that it was civil. Beth knows that is not a glowing report and begins to seduce Rick when suddenly when someone knocks on the door claiming to be room service--neither of them asked for room service. Rick and Beth opens the door and there is a room service cart out that. However, he gets nervous and shoves Beth inside. Rick is suddenly paranoid that their secret could come out, like say on a certain website. Beth half-jokingly states that blackmail is more likely then lets it slip that she handled Jonathan. That revelation freaks Rick out further. Beth tells Rick that Jonathan promised not to show the photos. Rick is horrified, though, that Mel is going to find out the truth and decides to tell her about their affair himself. This freaks Beth out since if he tells Mel, Alan could find out. Rick is determined and heads off to see Mel. Rick asks Mel to meet him on Main Street but Beth follows right behind him and before Mel arrives, pleads with Rick not to say anything. Rick is adamant and when Mel arrives, Rick gets her away from Beth so they can talk. Suddenly, Beth spots Lia and drags her over to Rick and Mel. Rick is shocked and Mel admits that she brought Lia along so they can spend the day as a family. Mel states that Lia tricked her into remembering when she almost lost him before hi had his heart transplant and she does not want to lose him again. Rick keeps quiet and decides to go out with Mel and Lia.

Jonathan and Lizzie are arm in arm heading to the movie theater. Both know that they are being tailed by Alan's Private Investigator. However, there is a court order preventing the PI from being in the same room as Jonathan and Lizzie so he cannot go into the movies with them. Inside, Jonathan ditches Lizzie and sits with Tammy. Ashlee then joins Lizzie in the seat formerly occupied by Jonathan. She is appalled when she sees Jonathan and Tammy making out but Lizzie is not fazed by it--after all she is married to him and having his baby. When Ashlee implies that Jonathan will ditch her for Tammy as soon as the baby is born, Lizzie yells at her to shut up. Ashlee thinks Lizzie should work harder to keep an eye on her husband but Lizzie does not think she has to. After all, how thrilled is Tammy that Jonathan is married to her and having a baby with her? She states that in the end, that will kill her feelings for Jonathan. When the movie is over, Jonathan goes up to Lizzie's seat. She is happy to learn that Tammy is still a little depressed about their missed rendezvous last night. Knowing that Alan's PI is outside, Jonathan and Lizzie play the doting newlywed act to the hilt, as Tammy looks on. Later, at the Beacon, Jonathan leaves Lizzie to sneak into Tammy's room. Tammy admits that she is still upset about his fake marriage. Jonathan assures her that it is only until the baby is born and Lizzie can probe that she is a good mother.
