Lily is at Emma's farm with Holden and Luke and she gets a call on her cell phone. It is Simon and he breaks the news to her that Katie is pregnant. Lily gets upset, but doesn't want Luke or Holden to see her so she goes outside to the porch and asks Simon to repeat what he just told her. Simon tells her again that Katie broke the news to him just as he was going to tell her that their marriage was over and he wants a divorce. Lily tells him that Katie is deceiving him. She tells him that he needs to question her again. He says that he thinks that she is really pregnant because she has been sick. Lily asks about her sickness. Simon says that she was sick just today. Lily is very upset and Luke comes outside and sees that she is crying. He yells back inside to Holden that his mommy is crying. Holden comes out to the porch and Lily tells Simon that she has to go. He asks if he can call her later and she hangs up. Holden tells Luke to go in and ask Emma which pie they are going to cut into. Luke runs inside and Holden questions Lily about her being upset. She says that she can't talk about it and she goes inside and tells Luke that they will have to take their piece of pie home with them. Holden feels hopeless.

At Java Underground, Rose and Denise are trying to get ready for their first dance lesson. Rose tries to find Lily on her cell phone. When Lily doesn't answer, she assumes that Lily is talking with Holden about their divorce. Ben and Curtis walk in and Curtis asks where is everyone? Rose leaves to get the rest of the students and Denise breaks the news to Curtis that he is the only male in the class. She tells him that, in time, they will be getting more males in the class. When the girls come into the room, Denise tells the students to get acquainted with each other and she and Rose go across the room to talk. Denise asks Rose if she got the t-shirts for the students? Rose tells her that she has been busy but she will get them tomorrow. Denise tells her that she had better not let her down on this. Rose tells Denise that Lily is telling Holden tonight that she wants a divorce. The two go back to the group and get the class started. Denise starts the music and it is not her music. She starts to panic and Isaac tells her that her music is in a bag on top of the stereo. He picks up the bag and it is empty. He says that the DJ must have taken the music when he left. Denise starts to panic again. Isaac tells her to calm down, the DJ lives close and they can get her music back in no time. Ben offers to go pick up the CD's that are missing. After Ben is gone, Denise and Rose discuss what they are going to do while Ben is gone. Denise tells the girls that they are going to discuss the history of dance. The girls all groan. Isaac comes in to save the day. He says that he will demonstrate break dancing. They all look at him like he is crazy, but as he starts to dance, everyone gets involved. Curtis takes notice to how much attention Isaac is giving Denise. Finally, Ben gets back with the music and the women start to their dancing lesson. Curtis makes a comment to Denise how handy Ben is to have around. After Denise walks away, Ben tells Curtis to lay off. Curtis acts like he doesn't know what Ben is talking about, so Ben starts telling him that this little girl had been looking at him and that little girl sure is cute. Curtis asks him what is he doing? Ben tells him that it isn't fun when someone is trying to play love connection. He tells him that it just doesn't work like that. Denise comes over and makes Curtis get in on the lesson and he really enjoys himself. After the lesson is over, everyone leaves and Rose gives Holden a call. She asks him to go out to dinner with her and he says that he is dealing with something and besides he had a big dinner with his mother. Rose tells him that it will do him good to get out and he can just watch while she eats and she can tell him about her first dance lesson. Holden tells her that tonight is not a good night and she can tell him about her first lesson the next time they see each other. Rose hangs up and she is disappointed. Denise asks her about Holden and Rose tells her, "You know men, you just can't figure them out."

Katie returns back to the garage and she beats Simon back there. She yells for him as she enters, but he doesn't answer. She had spent some time with Margo finding out about pregnancy symptoms. Margo had given her some books to read. She hears Simon coming in and she rushes to the bathroom. Simon yells for her and she tells him to wait a minute. He can hear her in the bathroom getting sick. Of course, she is pretending. She comes out of the bathroom with mouthwash and apologizes to Simon. She tells him that her morning sickness seems to be lasting the whole day. Simon starts to question her again about her doctor and being pregnant. She gets upset with him and yells at him. She apologizes again and goes to a bag that she brought in and takes out junk food and starts eating the food. Simon watches her and then he tells her that he has to get some air and he leaves.

Molly tells Jake that Vicky really needs her. She tells him that she kept saying that they need her and the 1111 was coming up on the monitor. Then, Molly remembers that Vicky had written four straight lines on the mirror the first time that she had seen her. She tells Jake that she must have been writing 1111 on the mirror. Molly says that she is shaking so much she can hardly hold her copy and she looks down at the papers. She sees the date and then thinks that maybe the 1111 is a date of some sort. Kim comes over and tells Molly to get into position they are coming back from the commercial. When Molly starts the news again, everything goes well and she sees Vicky standing by the camera and she is smiling. After the news is over, Molly tells Jake and Abigail that she is going to work hard for Vicky and try to find out what she needs.

Will runs back upstairs and Hal mutters that he hopes he can. Hal leaves and Barbara returns. As she is setting her purse and packages down on the table, the doorbell rings. When she opens the door a man is standing there with a bunch of roses. She signs for the roses and gives the guy a tip. She takes the roses and comments how beautiful they are.

She says that they have something to clear up. She asks Hal about a note? He says that it doesn't matter. She says that she thinks that she knows how he must feel. Hal says that he knows how she feels. She feels that she can just run in and out of Craig Montgomery's bachelor pad whenever she feels like it and making fools out of him and her.

He breaks the news to Lily that they didn't use any birth control. He tells her that he threw the condom away. Lily yells at him. She asks him how stupid could he be?

Jake and Molly were determined to discover why Vicky made reference to the number 1111. Hoping to find a clue, they went to the City Times office to research all of the news stories that happened on November 11. They were shocked to find an article describing the body of an unidentified woman that had been discovered washed up in the waters off Canada, close to where Vicky's plane crashed.

At Hal and Barbara's, Kim and Barbara discussed the state of the Munson marriage. Hal arrived and was furious when Barbara told him she had no idea of Jennifer and Adam's whereabouts. At Kim's suggestion, Hal agreed to see a marriage counselor but Barbara was against the idea and admitted sadly that there was nothing left to save. When Kim left, they resumed arguing and Barbara accused Hal of being obsessed with Craig Montgomery. Hal told Barbara he felt like Craig was destroying his life. After Hal left to go find Jennifer, Craig called Barbara to invite her to lunch--she accepted happily.

Adam and Abigail were nervous and decided to leave, but Jen decided to stay with a determined Bryant.
