Carly goes to Craig's to work. He tells her this is a bad time; he has a business lunch with Barbara and he's sure she's up to something.

Dusty drops by Carly's to see Janet with a bacon sandwich. Jack walks in after just making her a bacon sandwich. "Maybe Carly's hungry," Dusty tells Jack. Janet decides she's nauseous. They start offering her saltines and ginger ale. Janet thinks this is all too weird and they are stressing her out. Dusty offers to buy her a house to relax in. Jack demands to know all about the house. Carly walks in and asks him why he cares so much. Janet reminds him that they're getting a divorce. Dusty and Carly advise Jack to get a lawyer and do the deed. Jack tries to delay but he gets chased out of the house, leaving Carly to look after Janet. Liberty calls, distraught, and asks why her mother isn't there. Janet wants to run off and see her.

Vienna and Henry go to Metro. She pulls him up to dance and tries dragging him into the coat check. As she sucks on his ear, Barbara and Craig walk in. They sit down as Vienna sits on Henry's lap. Barbara begins making the moves on Craig. Henry stares at them and avoids Vienna's kisses. "I've gotta go to the bathroom," he declares, running off. Barb saunters over to Vienna and tells her she can sense the tension from across the room. Vienna opens up about how Henry can't perform in the sack. Barbara smirks, explaining that she can't just waltz back into Henry's life. She needs to back off and let him come to her, she advises. Across the room, Henry asks Craig if he has designs of Barbara. Craig laughs and guesses he's being used to make him jealous. Vienna runs over and ushers Henry out.

Dusty is freaking out when he discovers that someone has bought the house he wanted out from under him. He offers the buyer more cash but he refuses. Jack gets called over by the realtor as Dusty begins threatening the man. After Dusty calms down, he talks about the house with Jack, who explains that the guy planning to buy the house is under investigation. He suggests that Dusty tip off the realtor.

Janet arrives in Minneapolis and finds Rocco with Liberty. She's shocked. Rocco asks to speak to her in the hall. He tells her that he will be there for her and her child. She fills him in on her pregnancy. "What a blessing for your marriage," he says, offering to be part of her life and hugging her. She gets uncomfortable as he talks about Jack. Dusty calls and asks her where she is. She explains that she went to see her daughter. Rocco takes the phone and gets angry when he discovers it's Dusty on the line instead of Jack.

Back in the room, Liberty tells Carly that she doesn't think she can hang on until the baby comes. She begs her to help her mom with things. Carly tells her she's not going to die. Janet returns and sends Carly off.

Dusty arrives at the hospital and informs Rocco that he is engaged to Janet. Rocco groans, sure that Janet is about to ruin another child's life. "No wonder she lied to me. She's ashamed of herself," Rocco says. He walks off and Janet comes out to hug Dusty. They return to Liberty's bedside and Rocco stares in at them.
