Elizabeth falls back when Lucky and Rebecca head off to the carnival.
Sam comes to the office and after learning Spinelli won’t go to the carnival, offers to handle the case and leaves. Spinelli thinks that was odd, but Maxie wants to talk about his fear of clowns.

Maxie gets an idea of how to conquer his fear of clowns and leads him out the door.

Lulu and Dominic engage in their usual banter and Lulu runs off. Olivia lashes out at Dominic, telling him he needs to treat girls with respect and he can’t win them over with his charm and dimples. Dominic points out he doesn’t have dimples and walks off. Carly thinks Dominic reminds Olivia of Sonny, because she sees the similarities too.

Spinelli says even if there were danger, he’s dressed like a clown and the buffoon often gets the better of the devil.
