At Company, Bill tells his father that he wants to take Lizzie to New York City and pull out all the stops. Billy offers him some suggestions. Bill has been going out of his mind waiting for his tenth date with Lizzie and wants to squeeze seven dates into 48 hours.

At the office, Phillip isn't happy that Alan wants him to undergo a psychiatric test before he can work in the company again. He insists that he isn't afraid of the results but suspects his father is up to something. Alex tells him to just go through with it. Phillip continues to refuse so Alan suggests that Lizzie offer her opinion. She's not sure this is the best way to go about this and suggests they just duke it out. Alex forbids her brother to fight while he's still drunk. Alan offers him a psychiatrist's number. Phillip suggests they have group therapy. Bill arrives and ushers Lizzie out. He asks her if she'll end up as nuts as them someday. "Probably," she says. "Then we can go nuts together," he offers before asking her out for dates four through ten. Seven elegant dates in New York City.

Lizzie and Bill go back to the mansion to pack. He's eager to get this going but she teases him that she can wait longer than he can. They go upstairs and she packs her seven bags for seven dates.

Back in the office, Phillip defends Lizzie's running off and thinks she should be having fun, not running a company. Alex points out how well the company has been doing under Bill and Lizzie and thinks they deserve a break. Philip suddenly agrees to see the shrink. Alan takes his sister into another room and tells her he didn't get a doctor because he thought Phillip would refuse. "I guess I have to come up with a different approach to keep him in his place," he says. As he makes calls, Alex asks him to let this go. He refuses.

Frank and Buzz walk out of the church. Frank is panicking since Nat walked out. He worries that his father might have planted doubts in her head. Emma comes out and asks them what's going on. They take her inside and tell her that Nat must just need some reassurance and Olivia can give her that. Frank promises the little girl that he'll work everything out with Natalia. Buzz tells his son that he will be the best husband and father in the world, but maybe he rushed things too much... Frank talks about how much he loves her and his father tells him that he should be telling Natalia that.

Daisy walks outside with James. He's finding all of this entertaining. She thinks he's a jerk. He asks her for a ride. "Call your driver Richie Rich," she snickers. He doesn't like to play the rich kid. She thinks he's just coming onto her and walks away. As she drives off, she sees James hitchhiking. She's getting coffee for everyone and offers him a ride if he pays for it.

Olivia catches up with Nat in the gazebo. Natalia can't go back to the church even if she loves the Coopers and the idea of being part of their family. Olivia encourages her to do it, but Natalia says it's not right. Olivia continues trying to convince her that Frank is the right choice. "I don't love him! I love you!" Natalia finally blurts out. When Olivia told her that she loved her, she wasn't surprised. "Whatever this is... this doesn't happen, not in my world, and this really scares me..." Nat explains. But as time went on, things felt so right and she realized that Olivia is her family and is everything to her. Olivia thinks it's a relief to have this out in the open, but they're both confused. They sit down and worry about Frank and what they will tell him. Natalia's been lying to Frank and herself. Olivia tells her she's done nothing wrong. "I disappointed a good man," Nat says. Olivia offers to fix things. Natalia knows that all she did was tell the truth. "But what good is that truth if all it does is hurt other people?" she asks.

Frank shows up and asks her what happened. That's hard for her to explain. Natalia says she was overwhelmed and everything felt wrong; she's not right for him. She has feelings she doesn't understand. As she stutters and trails off, Olivia says the problem is Gus and it's too soon. Frank assumes that he pushed too quickly. "I never meant to hurt you... I wanted everything that today was supposed to be," Nat tells him, begging him not to hate her. He doesn't hate her, but he would never ask her to go against her true feelings. He says that they can tell everyone this was a mutual decision. She doesn't think she deserved to be saved. Frank still wants to wait for her. He kisses her and walks away. Natalia asks Olivia how she can lie to Frank like this. Whatever they have between them, she knows that Nat is ashamed of it and they can't dance around this anymore. She's sure that Natalia will hate her for this and she can't live with that. Olivia walks away in tears.

Buzz and Emma sit in the church and play cards. They talk about how confusing love can be.

Phillip meets Billy at Company. They eat and talk about their children. Daisy and James walk in. Lizzie calls and tells her brother about the big mess at the office. He tells her that their father is eating pie, not undergoing treatment. She's leaving town so she wants to say goodbye. He lets her know that he'll be sticking around and glances over at Daisy. They get the coffee order ready. Billy tells Phillip that James reminds him of him. "That's what worries me," Phillip says. Alan calls and tells him that he's found him a doctor.

At the mansion, Alex sneers at Alan. "What? You told me to take control," he says. He sits down and waits. Phillip arrives and Alan sends a few guards from the mental hospital after him to drag him off.

When Daisy and James get back to the church, it's empty. They decide to sneak up and ring the bell.

Frank and Olivia go back into the church to get Emma. Frank thanks Olivia for all of her help. She takes her daughter and leaves. Frank explains to his father that Gus is the reason the wedding didn't happen. He's determined to help Natalia get over him. "Grief doesn't have a time schedule," Buzz warns. As Olivia and her daughter walk out, she tells Emma that Natalia just needs to figure some things out.
