Faith runs into Parker on the street and tells him she's out of her mom's clutches. He congratulates her. She asks him out to eat but he's rushing around. He informs her that Liberty asked him for a break. She thinks he should be with Liberty today anyway and offers to go with him.


At the hospital, Liberty and her mom are waiting for news on her chemo results when Janet suddenly gets an ominous feeling. They talk about being part of a growing family and then discuss her problems with Dusty, Liberty orders her mother to call him and work things out. She calls him and he asks her to meet him at the station. Faith and Parker arrive and Janet heads off.


At Carly's, Jack and Carly bicker as he takes out the trash. She forces him to admit that he wants Janet to live with him and be a big part of his life. They scream at each other until he gets a call. He has to leave. She's afraid that they won't manage to make the last step to get back together. Jack asks her to hold on a little longer.


Dusty is at the station giving his statement to the cops. He goes into Jack's office and tells Jack that he didn't know how weak Rocco was. Jack blames his death on him. Janet arrives. Jack leaves them alone. Dusty explains what happened with her father. She breaks into tears and goes into denial. Jack returns to confirm things.


At Monte Carlo, Craig is moaning to Ellis about the blackmail. Ellis warns him that one payment won't solve things. Craig says it will buy him time. Gabriel arrives and starts working. He and Craig bicker. Craig admits that he still feels guilty about Bryant. As Gabriel works, he injures his hand. Carly arrives and thinks Gabriel should go to the emergency room. After he leaves, Carly talks about the trip to Milan and how she wants to bring the kids. Craig asks her what Jack's done now. She complains about Janet and says she blew up at her. He points out that Jack deserves a lot of the blame. Carly hates being turned into an 'angry shrew'. He gives her a massage and then calls some professional masseurs over. Craig points out that he works harder to make her happy and apologizes for getting involved with Rosanna. He wakes up everyday wondering what his life would be like if he'd just realized how much Carly means to him. Once she's relaxed, she gets dressed and tells him she has to go and see Jack to work things out.


Back at the hospital, Liberty runs into Gabriel and then the doctor comes out to say he has her results. Liberty, Faith, Gabriel and Parker gather together to hear. The doctor explains that the results are good and they are going to ease up on the chemo. Everyone is thrilled. She hugs each of them. Parker looks uncomfortable when she hugs Gabriel.


They go outside and Gabriel shows them his new car. Parker stares as Gabriel throws Liberty the keys. They drive over to Al's and Gabriel advises Liberty not to eat too much junk food. The waitress asks Parker if he can take a look at the clogged drain. Faith offers to stay and keep him company so Liberty and Gabriel leave together. She gives Parker a hug on her way out. Once she's gone, Faith tells Parker he deserves someone who will appreciate him more.


Jack and Janet go down to the morgue so she can see her father. She used to wish that he was dead, but all she really wanted was for him not to be ashamed of her. Dusty walks in and asks to speak to her alone. Once Jack is gone, Janet blames Dusty for her father's death. When she walks away, he follows and tells her that her father was only trying to make amends. "I can't even look at you anymore," she says. When she returns to Jack, she cries about how much losing her father hurts.


Carly arrives at the station. Dusty tells her that Rocco dies. She stares into Jack's office and sees him comforting Janet.
