She admits that she's frustrated. He asks her out on a date. She runs upstairs to dress. A letter is delivered to Jack. He opens it and stares. Carly comes back down. He explains that he just received his divorce papers. Soon, he'll be a free man. "Isn't that what you want?" she asks. Janet comes in. Everything is awkward. Carly stares off and then walks out. Jack chases after her and apologizes. "I don't want to hear how sorry you are," she says. He turns back to Janet. She thought vows were meant to be permanent. He says she has a new future and deserves the best. She gets a call from Reid informing her that there has been no change with Dusty. She worries that she doesn't have a future after all. Jack promises that he'll never stop looking out for her. Janet wonders how Carly will feel about that. They bicker about whether the baby was a mistake. He insists that he's looking forward to the baby and divorce won't change his commitment.


At Monte Carlo, Gabriel is searching around before he hides in the corner as Ellis and Craig come in. Craig spots him. "Who the hell are you?" he demands. Gabriel explains that he works there and Carly hired him. Ellis leaves. Craig tells Gabriel he doesn't like snoops. They bicker and Craig says he's not allowed in alone. Carly arrives and Craig wishes she'd talked to him before hiring someone. After Craig walks off, Carly asks Gabriel to look at her new designs. He diplomatically says they're boring. She flips through them and says he's right. When she talks about her investor, he wonders if he's actually seen her stuff and liked it. She admits that Craig does all of the talking to the investor. She calls his office and soon discovers that he isn't backing her after all. Craig runs back in and babbles about work. She glares and then yells at him for lying to her. He tries making excuses and then explains that he's the sole investor. They argue about her designs. She refuses to trust him and walks out. Craig fires Gabriel.


Bob and Kim are at the Lakeview toasting to 25 years. "We're not old: We're classy," he tells her. Dr. Oliver arrives. Kim excuses himself and Reid tells Bob that he's being sued for malpractice.

Kim goes down to see Bob and he tells her how important it is to have Reid around. He wants to leave Memorial a better place than it was. Kim worries that he'll be working too hard but he says this is his last big achievement. Barbara comes in and congratulates them. Kim hands Bob a photo of the cabin. She explains that she's had it renovated and she's cleared his schedule so they can move in. He tells her it will have to wait a few weeks. She's disappointed and feels like they're never going to get there. She feels like he cares more about his job than romance. Kim challenges him to prove that she comes first... at least for a few days.
