Suddenly, they appear disinterested until Kate makes a comment that NBC is interested in Sami's story. They ask Sami to take them to the cabin to show them exactly what happened and let her know that are interested and will need to buy the rights to her story from her. She appears happy with the news. The men leave and Sami thanks Kate for giving her this opportunity. She apologizes for questioning Kate's motives.

At a meeting in Lucas' apartment, EJ tells a puzzled Lucas why he is going to have a press release to tell the world about how Mythic's stock is down. When Lucas says that this is bad press for the company, EJ retorts that, "Any press is good press." Lucas tells EJ that while he thinks that his ideas are interesting he's not interested in working for him. He has changed his mind. EJ asks if Lucas still needs a job and although Lucas admits he does, he just doesn't like EJ and can't work for him! EJ tells him that he won't be moving out of the building now that he's not going to work for him and gives Lucas his word that he won't make the moves on Samantha. Lucas doesn't trust him but does trust Samantha. He mentions that Sami wants to see him to rot in jail! EJ doesn't understand why Lucas won't take the job, so Lucas brings up EJ's heritage. Since EJ is a DiMera, he doesn't want anything to do with him. EJ presses on and says he doesn't think that's the real reason but wonders if Lucas has issues working for his 'Mummy'! EJ gets pushy and tries to make Lucas another offer to do the PR for Mythic, so he gives him a second offer. He promises Lucas his own office, stock options, bonuses and a staff that he can hire and fire at will. Lucas won't budge even when EJ reminds him that Lucas has mouths to feed. Lucas says they have 'mouth' to feed. They have just one child. Just then Will walks in, takes one look at EJ and after Lucas greets him by saying, "Hi mouth," Will rudely asks EJ, "Aren't you supposed to be in jail?" Lucas smirks as he half heartedly chastises Will for asking such a question. EJ leaves for a moment and when he returns, he brings Will a Playstation 3! Will thanks EJ politely for it but tells him that if he really needed one he'd ask his dad!! EJ stuffs the Playstation in the garbage and apologizes for what it looks like. He goes on to say that this is just his way for making up for past mistakes. Lucas finally allows Will to take the game and Will is thrilled. He exclaims, "Yes!!" and fishes it out of the garbage. EJ thinks Will is a good kid and has two good parents. He asks Lucas, "Why don't you have more children?"

They get packed up and Belle asks if Chelsea would take some of Kayla's money to buy one of the homeless woman some food for her child.
