Sharon interjects she and Nick were only apart for a night. Billy reveals he and Phyllis were going to get married – this isn’t the only wedding that’s not going to happen.

Arturo isn’t sick of it and jokes, “Give me more.” Arturo decides they need to go drink tequila and hit the dance floor – he knows the perfect place.
At home, Sharon wants Nick out of her house. Mariah and Noah want them to deal with this. Noah has never been so disappointed in his father, but feels Sharon should have handled this differently. Once alone, Nick tells Sharon he’s so sorry. Sharon recalls how he did this after Cassie and figures excuses come next. Nick explains he found her ring on the desk and believed they were through – he was hurting, and Phyllis was hurting too. Sharon snaps that he should have called a friend, but he had sex with Phyllis…of all people! Nick denies carrying a torch for his ex, but admits he kissed Phyllis, which hurts Sharon more. She wails, “What is wrong with us?” She decides there should not be a ‘next time’ for them. Nick wants a chance, but Sharon angrily replies, “I said no.” She rants about the new Nick wanting everything his way. Nick apologizes. He’ll do anything to make this right. Sharon can’t be with him – she won’t put herself through it again.
At the Abbott house, Jack leaves Billy with Phyllis, who insists she regrets not telling him what happened with Nick – she didn’t want to hurt him. Billy marvels that when he hit bottom he knew he’d be okay because he had her still. Phyllis tears up, “You still do.” They embrace. Billy sighs that she’s usually smarter than this. He steps back, declares they’re done, and tells her to get out of his house and his life. Phyllis vows to fight for Billy with everything she has. After Phyllis goes, Billy tells Jack he’s getting what he deserves. Jack thinks he needs rehab more than ever. Billy agrees to go tomorrow, but has to clear his head.

At the bar, Billy’s glad Summer came to meet him. They touch on his ‘spontaneous’ proposal, and Billy reveals he ended things with her mother. Summer wonders why he called her. Billy says she was right all along – he couldn’t give into temptation before, but now he’s free to do what he pleases. Billy wants to go back to her place – it’s her call.
Mariah and Noah arrive at Sharon’s place with Faith. Sharon tells Faith she’s ashamed of her behavior as Nick comes downstairs with his bags. Nick’s sorry that he and Christian will have to move out.
