With Allison watching her from outside of Llanfair, Natalie daydreams about kissing John then hugs Bree, who enters the living room with Viki, Once Bree's occupied, Viki questions Natalie about her far-off mood, but Natalie brushes her off to get something for Bree - while Allison snaps a photo of Jessica's daughter on her cell. Viki gets a call from Cris and asks Natalie to watch Bree, as Roxy arrives and asks Natalie, "What's up with you and Johnny McBain?" Roxy begs Natalie to leave John alone, because he's with Marty now, and says, "You don't want to be a home-wrecker." Natalie laughs, since Roxy's acting as though Marty and John are married - or have kids, but demands to know what she's on about. Roxy tries to leave, with talk of split-ends and half-priced manicures, but Natalie stops her. Natalie sends Bree off, and Roxy makes a comment about Natalie being good with kids, saying, "Too bad you're not the one with the baby."

In his room, Marty tucks the test into the back of her pants, as John gives her some chicken soup and talks about going to Llanfair to see Jessica. Marty stops him, not wanting to hear about Natalie and says, "I have no idea what you see for us in the future." John wonders if she's talking about marriage - or a family - and Marty replies, "Yes, exactly that." John knows in order to move forward with him, Marty has a right to answers, but as he's about to give them to her, Fish shows up. Marty excuses herself, and Fish asks John, "What would you do if you found out you were going to be a father?" John assures Fish that he would make a good dad, especially since he has Kyle. Fish wonders what should happen if one party isn't ready to have a kid, and John replies, "Assuming they have a choice… They shouldn't have a kid." Marty listens from the other room but has to leave to go meet Viki. John kisses Marty on her way out, promising to get back to their conversation later, then John turns his attention back to Fish. John warns that he's the only one who can make this decision.

Fish goes back to Kyle, says he needs more time to think then asks him to keep the results in a safe place. Kyle is disappointed that he's putting off such a big decision but agrees.

Elijah arrives at the hospital and tells Gigi he plans to file her custody suit today. After Elijah leaves, Rex assures Gigi she's doing the right thing, and Gigi vows to be a better mother, and father, to Sierra than Schuyler could ever be. Rex agrees that Schuyler has no business raising a kid, but Gigi wonders if Rex is sure he wants to be in the middle of this mess. Just then, Shane appears to see Sierra, his sister, then corrects by saying, "Cousin," and Gigi admits he might get a chance to be Sierra's brother - because she's going for custody. Shane is cool with it but worries about how Rex feels and asks, "How will you feel about a baby that's half Aunt Stacy, half Schuyler and living with me and Mom?" Rex reassures Shane then Gigi takes him to see Sierra.

Shane looks in the window at the baby and urges Rex to go with Gigi, when the doctor appears. Once they're gone, Shane hears a click, turns around and asks a woman, "Did you just take my picture?" It's Allison! Allison claims she's a nurse's aide then Shane agrees to allow her to take a new photo. "Say 'heed the messenger'," Allison instructs then snaps the photo - and rushes off when Rex and Gigi reappear with news.

Kim stalls at the diner, as Clint urges her to sign the pre-nup. "There's no negotiating," Clint says before leaving Kim with a decision. Kim begins reading the document then Stacy appears - as Kim daydreams about the waiter being shirtless. Stacy reminds Kim to get it together, but Kim doesn't understand the legal garb of the pre-nup. When Elijah comes through the door, she convinces him to look it over - and he's shocked that she's marrying Clint Buchanan. Kim imagines Elijah only wearing a tie, as he talks about the money aspect of the pre-nup and the fact that if Kim's unfaithful, she'll get nothing - even the clothes Clint bought her! After Elijah leaves, Stacy reappears and asks if she likes Clint enough to give up men for the rest of her life? Though Kim says, "Forever is a longtime," Stacy's image finally gives up and claims if Kim doesn't want to raise Sierra someone else will.
