Abby's sorry she made Jack think of Phyllis. Yeah, well, he's ALWAYS thinking of Phyllis. Will there ever be any change? Abby has to ask.
Over wine, Kelly claims she's ready to teach again. Lily and the twins helped her realize that she misses it. Lily will call her friend on the school board. Assured the scandal has blown over by now, Kelly hopes she and Billy can be friends again.
Billy doesn't have anything to feel guilty about - he just said bye to Kelly - made it clear it can never happen again. Did you listen to her message?! What did you say to her?? Billy can't just cut her off - or hurt Kelly's feelings. HER feelings?! Since when are HER feelings more important than mine!? Vikki wails.
The meeting was nothing - why can't Vikki let it go? She's to turn her head while Billy cheats!? Don't touch me! I can barely stand to look at you. If Billy won't go, Vikki will. She needs time and space, not counselling. OK - fine - but we're not done with this. As Vikki does an ugly cry, Billy leaves with his tail between his legs.
Back at the GCAC, Lily's left her friend a message - hopefully she can get Kelly a teaching job. Lily has a great idea - she wants to invite someone smart, good looking and totatly available - Dr Klein is perfect for you. Let me set you up, Lily pleads.
Every day that Phyllis doesn't wake up, hurts Jack. He knows the family don't understand how he remains optimistic. Abby encourages Jack to move on - find someone who makes you happy. Jack chuckles - if he couldn't be happy with Phyllis, she'd want him to be miserable.
As Nick reclines in bed, Sharon goes down for snacks (interrupting Cassie as she snoops) No, no no - this can't be happening. Is it because I made love to Nick? Did you tell him the secret? No - it would ruin everything. Phyllis is the only one who knows and she can't say anything. When Cassie tries to get Sharon to confide her secret in HER, Sharon's puzzled; I already told you.
Abby understands. Good -Jack suggests she get Vikki to forgive Kelly and move on. OR - Abby can run the tramp outta town. Abby might stay out of this one. And remember, the perfect woman might be out there waiting for Jack.
Come on - Dr Klein's amazing - Clooney-ish looks. Kelly's not crazy about doctors. But he's a pediatric dentist. Meet him at the fashion show. No - Kelly's not hung up on Billy - she wants a relationship - someday.
After Jack's daily chat with Phyllis' nurse, Billy arrives - can I stay at your place tonight?
In bed, Nick hears Sharon talking... 'I already told you'. Yes - you told me your secret. Knowing she wants to tell Nick, Cassie encourages Sharon to practice it out loud. Asking about spelling 'fantasm'- and the photos, Sharon grabs Cassie's arms. *gasp* I can feel you. Get hold of yourself - Mom - let go. Nick - Nick!? Cassie grabs her coat and runs out (somehow Sharon ends up on the floor) Sharon? Sharon? Can you hear me? Nick stoops over her.
Victor flashes back to overhearing Sharon's old doctor talk to a colleague at CL's; it was a challenging case - there was one issue she could never let go of - her daughter's death - her marriage fell apart - she became obsessed with getting her husband back - - she admited some of her destructive behaviour - but not what she did to her ex husband (that if he found out he'd never take her back)
She was here. Who? Cassie - I touched her. I'm not crazy. This is my fault - being together is too much for you to handle. Sharon insists Nick hasn't hurt her - it has nothing to do with what he's done - it's about what SHE's done. Looking guilty and scared, Sharon cries on Nick's shoulder.
What were you thinking? Stay away from Kelly. We have a connection - Billy can't pretend it's not there. It's about more than grief for Kelly, Jack suggests Billy give Vikki some time.
Abby's brought a gift guaranteed to fix any marriage (lingerie) Make up sex can be healing. Vikki's snaps - Abby! My marriage is falling apart!
Jack gives Billy a key - get some sleep - hang in there. Billy leaves Jack to bite his lip - and call Kelly; is she free for lunch tomorrow? It's not about the Delia Project - it's personal. Noon tomorrow at the club. OK - see you then ~click~
