Angie comes into the kitchen, telling Frankie that Cass is still sleeping. They talk about her problems, wondering how they can help. Frankie says Cass will be fine because Dre is a good guy.

In the hall, two thugs attack Frankie!
At the Chandler manse, Carmen disrupts Adam's work by vacuuming. Erica arrives and demands that Adam help Dre! He says there is nothing he can do for Dre because he is in just as much trouble. Erica won't give in. Carmen suggests that Adam buy a replica car. Erica keeps pushing him but Adam refuses to consider helping Dre. He accuses Erica of using Dre's problems to get in good with Sam - and find her eleventh husband! Carmen defends Erica. Adam fires her! He walks out. Erica says she can fix the problem and calls Kendall for help. Kendall doesn't pick up the phone.
At home, Zach convinces Kendall that they have to go to Vegas with Ryan and Annie to keep an eye on her. He says this is the only way they will know if she is competent enough to be around the boys. Kendall worries about Annie and then realizes she has a bigger problem - leaving Amanda and Babe to look after Fusion again.
At the police station, Samuel takes a call from Carl as Jesse gives Dre his walking papers. Melvin is there and once Sam is off the phone, leads them away.

The officer returns with the file and Zach leaves. Jesse says he wants a copy of the accident report, too.
Sam, Dre and Melvin arrive at the Valley Inn. Samuel angrily hangs up on Carl for the five-hundredth time, saying he may need to find a new job if he can't handle the press! Dre apologizes again. Sam says he is just sorry Dre didn't feel he could come to them. Melvin says both men need to start talking openly; Dre says he can't talk to Sam because of all the phone calls. Samuel turns off the phone and says he is ready to listen - then he suggests that Dre drop Cassandra! This angers Dre until Samuel says Cassandra needs her family and stability, not more drama. He says if Dre keeps coming around, Cass will never get over the trauma of the accident. Dre reluctantly agrees with him. Samuel hugs Dre as Melvin says they did a great job at their first talk.
