Chris comes downstairs at the Hughes home to find Nancy reading. Nancy can't seem to grasp the idea that Chris left his well-paying job at a well-known hospital to return home to "spend more time with family". Nancy just doesn't buy it, despite what Chris says. Just as Chris is about to tell Nancy all, Emily arrives with Daniel. Nancy tells an inquiring Emily that she hasn't seen Bob or Kim all day, Tom is at an emergency hearing, Margo has her hands full with work, and she, herself, is on the way out to go play bingo with some girlfriends. Nancy suggests Emily drop Daniel off with Chris until Tom can be reached, but neither Chris nor Emily seem impressed with the idea. However, Emily gets a call about a problem at The Enquirer and is left with no choice. An aggravated Emily leaves an eager Daniel with his uneasy Uncle Chris.

Andy and Susan talk over a cup of hot cocoa at Java. Andy tells of Roxie's immature ploy to gain sympathy in the parking lot at the telethon. Susan advises Andy to stay clear of Roxie and John until she can find out more about their connection. Later, Susan arrives at John's house. John seems a little down in the dumps, but is in for a shock when Susan starts to fawn over him. John takes the bait and immediately assumes they'll be spending some time in the bedroom. While John goes to "freshen up", Susan does some snooping and finds among other things: one of Roxie's blouses, some perfume, and an empty pharmacy bag. Susan snatches it all up and begins to head out the door until John appears and asks where she think she's going.
Dana walks through the lobby of the Lakeview, planning on sneaking back up to her father's suite when she runs right into...her father. Grant holds up Dana's lip gloss and Dana covers, saying that she left that a few days ago, went to his suite to retrieve it, and when someone knocked, she got startled and ran out. Grant falls for it and asks his daughter to join him for lunch. Dana says she has a job interview and leaves. Later, we see Dana walk into an Oakdale business. The setting looks familiar. Dana walks up to the front desk and tells the receptionist, "Dana Hamilton. I have a 2 o'clock interview with Ms. Barbara Ryan."
