Chris walks into the Recovery Room where Frank and Julie are celebrating their making up. Mike and Mary are talking at the bar, Mike told Mary she ought to go home before she embarrasses Frank. Julie has been drinking martinis and Frank told her she shouldn't drink anymore.

Jake throws Danielle out, he told her that he has nothing else for her to take from him. Danielle tries to tell him that they have to work together to stop Rex, but he says he still wants her out.

Rex introduces himself to Kevin. Kevin invites him in and Lucy and Scott are there. Rex thanks Lucy for offering Danielle a job. He also told everyone that he is beginning to get attached to his new family.

Mike is still trying to get Mary to go home. Frank asks Julie if this is the real Julie and she says maybe. When she asks where her next drink is he told her that it is too late for another one, and she gets defensive. Frank takes her over to say goodnight and Mike asks if he would mind taking Mary home since he can't. Julie says she is going to wait here and Mike says he will keep an eye on her while Frank takes his mom home. Chris walks in after Frank walks out and sits down and asks how Julie is. When he says he is going home to get some rest before rounds tomorrow, Julie says she won't let him be a step ahead of her and gets up to leave. Chris offers to take her home. As they are leaving, Mike asks her where she is going...she says she is going home and Chris says he will look out for her.

Rex told everyone that he had hoped he could help Danielle when he found her, but she didn't seem too happy to have been found. Kevin asks Rex more about Danielle. Serena walks in and asks what all the noise is about. She remembers Rex from the picnic with Lucy. Rex told Scott he is very lucky, and if he had a little girl like her he would never let her go. Lucy went to get everyone something to drink. When Rex walks up behind her and flashes back to the time she was in the lab with the kidnapper and tries to cover her feelings.

Danielle asks if he is really throwing her out and Jake says yes. She refuses to leave and told him he has every right to hate her, but even if she leaves Rex will not leave her alone. Jake says not to worry, he can't be framed for kidnapping because he was being held hostage the night Serena was kidnapped. The phone rings...it is his mother and she is upset.

Frank returned to the Recovery Room and asks Mike where Julie is. Mike told him that Chris took her home and apologizes. Frank heads home. Chris gives her some aspirin, and told her to get some rest. Julie says she has to study. Frank comes home and hears the music from Julie's apartment...then he hears Chris telling her to rest and drink lots of water. Chris comes upstairs and Frank asks how she is. Chris says she is fine, but it was a good thing he was there to bring her home.

Jake is on the phone with his mom trying to reassure her he would take care of everything. He hangs up and Danielle asks what is going on. He told her that an immigration officer called and threatened to deport them....his name was Rex Stanton. When she says that is all the more reason for them to work together, he told her he hasn't changed his mind. Nobody attacks his family and gets away with it.

Serena says goodnight, and Rex told them she reminds him of Dominique at this age. Lucy says they should become a real family with family dinners and traditions. Rex agrees and says he must get ready to leave. After he leaves, Kevin says they don't have any proof since Serena didn't recognize him as the kidnapper. Lucy told him and Scotty about her feeling, she says there is something about his aura. Scott doesn't want to wait for Rex to crash and burn, but Lucy and Kevin tell him the three of them can keep Serena safe.

Eve says she doesn't really know her, Scott gets ready to leave and offers her a lift to the hospital. She turns him down at first and then reconsiders.

Lee asks what Ellen is going to do. She says she should have removed herself, she worked so hard to get where she is. Off the record, Lee told her that a suit like this is costly to the hospital and right now they can't afford it. He advises she get herself a lawyer to protect herself. Burgess looks away from Lee with tears in her eyes saying that she has something in her eyes. Lee offers to get her time off, she says no, and Lee told her that he will make sure she is treated fairly.

Eve told him that he is bad luck. Scott bets her $50 he can get her to work on time, and told her that this wouldn't have happened if he had his truck. They try his cell phone, but that doesn't work either. Scott told her that if he can't get her to work then he will build his own and put her in charge. She says she can't trust him and gets out and starts walking.

The interns are looking for Eve and Julie, it is a good thing that the doctor in charge is running late also. Burgess says if they aren't there in 20 minutes they are toast.

Ellen is checking on a patient and the nurse told her that the patient was transferred by her husband. The nurse tries to avoid the subject, but eventually told Ellen that it was because of Cooper's lawsuit. Matt overhears this and says it is outrageous.

When he walks away, Burgess told Matt he is right now she needs to start fighting back.

As Julie was racing around getting ready for work, Frank grilled her on post-op patients. Julie struggled, but then rose to Frank's challenge. Julie feared that she would be late for work no matter what, but Frank came up with an idea and rushed Julie to the hospital in an ambulance. A stranded Eve regretted the day she had ever met Scott. Eve attempted to hitchhike to the hospital until Scott convinced her to help him fix the car. Eve and Scott managed to get the car started, but Eve was streaked with grease. Scott assured Eve that he had friends at the hospital and that he would fix things for her. The new surgeon, Boardman, was incensed when Eve arrived at the hospital late. Scott tried to smooth things over for Eve, but Boardman remained unimpressed and made it clear to the interns that he would not tolerate tardiness. Later, Julie evaded a trick question with a correct diagnosis and Chris wasn't pleased to see the renewed bond between Julie and Frank. Ellen asked Lee for the transcripts of the interview with Cooper's lawyer, but Lee told Ellen that the transcripts were not public record. Matt urged Ellen not to give up and she later approached Scott for help with her dilemma.
