Bobbie assures him that she isn't dating anyone. Jessie and Dan are still discussing the details of their trial marriage. Jessie doesn't want to give up her bridge night with the girls, but thinks that Dan should find something else to do. Dan says no way, but Jessie convinces him to stick with it. He agrees.

Amy wants to know if Scotty and Laura were there, and Lesley informs her that they were. Lesley tells Amy that all of the family support is helping her get through this tough time. Alice is trying to tell Lesley that she shouldn't wear a certain outfit because it is associated with bad memories.  Alice is concerned that Lesley will slip back after having had such a nice evening the night before. Alice tells her that she looked sexy the night she went to the party and she doesn't look that way in the outfit she is going to wear today. Lesley states that she will never wear that outfit again.

Over at the Quartermaine's, Alan is waking up with a vicious hangover. He is in Monica's bed and doesn't remember anything about the party. He also doesn't remember how he got into Monica's room, but Monica tells him that she had Lee bring him there so that he and Gail wouldn't know that they weren't sleeping together.  Alan says that it's too late and that he already told Lee.  Monica tells him that it's time they talked about divorce.  Alan doesn't really feel well enough to talk about the divorce, but knows that he has to.  He is still upset that Rick told him the baby is not his, and wants time to think about it.  He also wants to know what Monica wants to do about the baby.  Monica informs him that she wants the baby to stay with her.  She then heads off to the hospital to make rounds.

Tracy and Mitch are talking about Alan's drinking, and can't understand what Alan is so upset about that he drank that much. Tracy heads over to the mansion to find out. Alan is still unable to make it downstairs. Stella comes in with more coffee and tells him that Tracy is downstairs and wants to see him. Alan tells Stella to get rid of her but before she can do that, Tracy comes in with a sure-fire hangover remedy. After drinking it, Alan starts to feel a little better. Tracy is concerned for her brother and wants to know what he is upset about. Back in Monica's bedroom, Alan is wise to the reason behind Tracy's visit. He denies that there are any problems with his marriage to Monica and that he has too many plans to let alcohol ruin them. He escorts Tracy to the door without divulging any personal business. Mitch is visiting Susan at work. He tells her that he is going to ask Tracy for a divorce. Mitch is serious, but he has to be careful. He wants to know that Susan will be there for him, but Susan is concerned that Tracy won't let him divorce her. Susan can't promise Mitch anything and won't commit to anything. She doesn't want to play games with Frank Smith because it's wrong and dangerous.

At the hospital, Luke and Bobbie are discussing his engagement to Jennifer Smith. Luke says that he is going to go along with the engagement and Bobbie argues that the only thing that will stop his marriage to Jennifer is if he could have Laura Baldwin as his wife. Luke doesn't think that Bobbie understands the situation and Luke is very confused about what he wants. Bobbie tells him that Laura is as hung up on him as he is on her. Luke says that Bobbie has always been jealous of Laura, but Bobbie won't admit it. She is concerned that Laura is using him, but before they can discuss it further, Amy walks up and they end their conversation. Jennifer shows up at Ruby's apartment to find out information on Luke.  She says that they may be engaged, but that she doesn't know that much about Luke. She wants to know who his friends are, specifically Scotty and Laura. She also wants to know why Bobbie doesn't like her. Ruby tells her that Bobbie is still getting over Roy's death. She tells her that Roy was shot by trying to kill Mitch Williams.

Luke and Frank are meeting to discuss the business. He wants Luke to take it over one day, so Luke needs to learn the ropes. Franks associate is showing Luke all that Frank's business involves.

Frank tells Luke that he enjoyed meeting Luke's family and that those are the kind of people that Frank wants supporting him. Frank wants to make the business legitimate and wants Luke to help him.

Over at GH, Monica and Lesley make small talk about the party. Lesley tries to leave, but Monica tells her that she's asked Alan for a divorce.  Visibly upset, Lesley leaves.  Ruby comes up to the nurses' station and tells Bobbie that Jennifer visited her today.  Bobbie tells Ruby that Luke has been backed into a corner and can't get out.  She tells her that Luke is only marrying Jennifer to protect Laura.  Bobbie is going to try to stop Laura from ruining their lives. Alan sees a worker in the hall who is fixing the attic. The worker assures him that there will be no more accidents with the construction, but Alan thinks the there will be another sort of accident.

Edward and Tracy are in Tracy's penthouse. Edward is about to sign a new will, which cuts Tracy out of the family fortune.  He tells her that he despises the very sight of her.  He wants her to prove her love for him by dropping the paternity suit regarding Alan Jr. Edward tells her that if she doesn't drop it, he will disown her completely. While he is lecturing her, he begins to have chest pains. He tells Tracy to go and get his medication from his apartment. She defies him and tells him that she is going to have to think about it. He begs her for the medication, but Tracy doesn't budge. She wants him to know that she is not dropping the paternity suit because she wants her son, Ned, to inherit the fortune.  As Edward falls to the floor, Tracy tells him that money is the most important thing. Edward is crawling towards his pills. Tracy tells him that they're on the table, but he can't reach them. He tells her that he is dying, but she doesn't even move to help him. He says," If you love me..." but Tracy won't help him. She tells him that the only man she ever loved was he.

Tracy is negotiating with an obviously distressed Edward. He urges her to stop talking about money and go and get his medication. Tracy leaves to do that. Tracy comes rushing in with Edward's medicine.  She wants him to tear up the will first.  He won't do it and begs her for the medicine. He then collapses on the floor.  She says that all he has to do is tell her that he's not going to sign the will. She walks away as he begs her one last time. Tracy stares out the window and tells him what a beautiful night it is. Tracy rushes to the phone and with her back turned, Edward rises and scares her. He calmly picks up the phone and calls his attorney. Tracy hugs him, but Edward tells her that she is no longer his daughter. Tracy tries to get him to rethink the new will, but he won't have it. Edward is furious with Tracy and tells her to go up to her room and stay there until he calls her.  He also tells her to pray that Mitch didn't marry her for her money. Edward is signing the will in the presence of a very upset Tracy.  After all is said and done, Tracy says that she will have the last laugh when the paternity suit shows that Alan Jr. is not a Quartermaine.  Edward leaves and Tracy calls Mitch. She tells him that she wants him home, and he tells her that he wants a divorce.

Lee tells him he shouldn't try to keep up with Luke and Frank Smith and that he should listen to what Laura tells him. Laura shows up to work and finds Lesley there.

Anne and Jeff are making breakfast together. Jeremy wants them to rent an apartment together so they can be together now, not when Jeff gets rid of Heather. Jeff receives a call for the looney bin that Heather spoke and said his name. Diana Taylor tells Howard that Heather has been catatonic since she took LSD but she has now spoken and she's worried that Heather will get better and escape from the asylum and take PJ. Howard says that he knows Diana hates Heather but the idea of her escaping is a remote possibilty, and she huffs off. Joe visits Heather in the aslyum. She is still in a fog and there is no sound and the world looks fuzzy when looking out from Heather's eyes (so not a problem with the scene but Heather is like she is underwater, sound is muffled), then a buzzer rings and suddenly she can hear again and it is clear, she goes in and out of clarity.

Bobbie and Joe take the wedding presents to Frank's house so they can snoop and try to find out where his daughter Jennifer is. Frank suddenly walks in and demands to know what she is doing in his house as he told her to never set foot in there again! She claims that she knows how important etiquette is to him and the wedding presents were sitting in Luke's house. She thought that Jennifer would be home by now, Frank snaps that she isn't back! Bobbie shows Joe the letter from Jennifer that she took from Frank's.

Luke, Laura and Hutch meet up at the restaurant. Luke tells him they are broke as he spent the money on clothes for his appearance at the county clerk office. Hutch confesses he held out $10 so they can eat breakfast. Luke tells Laura that he doesn't want her to go with him to the records office as Frank is looking for them together. He tells her he is going alone and to give him one hour and if he doesn't return, to leave town without him. Laura tells him that there is no way she will leave town, that she loves him and she is going with him and there is nothing he can do to force her to stay with Hutch! Luke gets Hutch to promise that if anything happens that he is to take Laura back to Port Charles. Luke arrives at the records office and says that he received property as a wedding present and would like to look it up and see what the property involved.

September 24, 1980 Frank visits his daughter Jennifer and he is happy to hear her tell him that she is no longer in love with Luke. Frank asks Jennifer if it would be okay for Leslie to come and visit her, it would assure Leslie that Jennifer is okay. Jennifer is surprised by this request and Frank casually asks if she can find out where Luke has gone to? Laura calls Hutch from the Post Office, she tells him that after Luke picked up the package that she thinks that Luke is being followed. Hutch sings a little improtu song on his own about looking for the Left Handed Boy. Luke calls Laura, she tells him about the tail.  Hutch sings "Kansas City" for Sally. Luke calls Laura from the bus station and she tells him that she thinks he is being followed. L&L are back together at Sally's and Laura gives him a huge hug as she is so relieved that he is okay. She asks him to admit that she did good today. He says that she did. She tells him it makes her crazy when he shuts her out. He can't promise not to do that to protect her. She tells him that she would rather die beside him that die inside not knowing what is happening to him. They decorate the place in preparation for the opening. L&L continuing decorating and talk about him almost marrying Jennifer. Hutch calls Frank to report in. Hutch tells Frank that he hasn't heard from the other hitman and Frank is evasive. After Hutch hangs up, he comments that Frank might be onto him. The other hitman then reports into Frank and tells him that Luke mailed the black book to Hutch in care of general delivery at the Fair Oaks Post Office. He continues that Hutch gave Luke his ID so that Luke could pick up the package. So Hutch had the opportunity to retrieve the book and didn't take it. Luke shows back up at the records office, and the clerk was able to pull up the records and tells Luke it is an office building.

Jeff goes to visit Heather in the asylum and she pretends to be crazy (so she doesn't face charges of slipping the LSD). Heather tells him that he is her husband. Jeff later tells this to Steve and worries that if Heather really needs him how will that effect his relationship with Anne? When he runs into her, Anne asks about his visit to Heather. He doesn't tell her about Heather responding to him. Anne reassures him and tells him that both her and Jeremy love him.

Luke recieves a note to meet the Left Handed Boy with the little black book. He discusses it with Hutch and Laura and realizes in order for them to stay alive that they have to figure this out quickly. Later, Luke tells Laura that he doesn't want her involved in retrieving the black book as it is too dangerous. He wants her to stay at the restaurant. She is indignant and reminds him that she has been in this since the beginning and she won't be left out now! Hutch retrieves his gun and ammo, with intentions of going after the gold and then heading to Argentina. Leslie and Bobbie talk about what their next step is, Bobbie seems nervous about the plan. Leslie says that she will work on getting Jennifer away from the watchful eye of her father, Frank Smith. She plans on threatening Jennifer in order to keep Luke and Laura safe. Laura tries again to convince Luke to let her come with him. He won't hear of it and holds her and kisses her and she accepts his desperation to keep her safe. Luke asks Hutch to promise to get Laura safely back to Port Charles if anything happens to him that night. Hutch agrees and says that no matter what that he will make sure Laura is safe.

Frank worries about what Joe will do if Patty dies and orders the guards doubled. Jeff vents to Anne about Patty's condition and his feeling of helplessness that he can't help his best friend's father. He warns Anne that if Patty goes into toxic shock that it is all over. Leslie joins them and Jeff asks if there is any word from the police on Laura and she sadly says not yet. Joe and Rose continue to worry over Patty's deteriorating condition.
