Ricky thinks that Anne is really lonely and vulnerable at the moment and that they should go along with her plans and get it over with. Anne’s mother has sent money for Ashley; but due to her Alzheimer, she ended up sending it to Amy instead of Ashley. Amy wants to keep the money and Ricky tells her that she can’t. She puts the $1000 in her purse and tells Ricky that she will think about what to do with the Amy. It is Ricky’s first day at school and Amy wishes him luck.

But she tells Ben that his statement made matters worse and so now her father will never allow her to meet him; which is in a way really nice. Any arrives at school and Kathy is glad that she does. She doesn’t know anyone at school and points out to Amy that she is not a good mentor as she disappeared on her after one lousy talk. Just then Kathy notices Ethan standing at a distance and smiling at her. She leaves Amy and walks up to Ethan and begins a conversation.

Meanwhile, Ricky is at the cafeteria and he meets an old friend from his foster home; Clementine. She is surprised that Ricky is married. She always thought that Ricky might have ended up in prison or something. Ricky looks terribly uncomfortable; so he leaves a huge tip and leaves. On his way out, he meets Jack and Adrian. Jack wants him to introduce him to Clementine. Ricky is doing no such thing. Amy smells something fishy; Ricky tells them that she is like a sister to him.

Well, Nora tells her about Anne’s wedding plans. Margret is upset that Anne did not tell her or include her in the plan. She wants Nora to be on her side. Nora suggests that they should talk to Ricky and Amy first before planning anything big. They are about to leave for lunch and Leo tells Nora that she has to stay at the office as there is an emergency and he has to leave. Margaret gets Nora to tell her about the fire. Madison tells Lauren that she wants to plan the wedding for Amy no matter what. Lauren tells her that Amy might not be really excited about the wedding. But Madison is not ready to listen to any reasoning. Madison doesn’t want to let go off Amy as she is their best friend. Madison wants that someone should want to marry her. Lauren tells her that they are not like Amy.

They have years to enjoy before they settle down. Ethan arrives and tells Madison that he wants some advice. He tells her that he wants to learn a thing or two about sex from her. He is also willing to pay her. Madison is furious and declares that she is not a hooker. She walks up to Amy and tells her about what Ethan just asked her.

Madison tries talking too her about the party, but Amy is irritated and tells her that she doesn’t want anyone to plan anything for her wedding. At home, Kathleen wants the house painted and George is more than excited to help. But there is more. Kathleen tells George that the divorce papers cane through and that she wants him to be with her only if he is serious about their relationship.

She doesn’t want him to have sex with her only for old time’s sakes. He tells her that when he was with Anne, he never felt that he was married; but this time he wants to feel married and wants them to be together for the rest of their lives. Amy talks to Kathy and tells her that being around Ethan is not a good idea. She could come over to her place on Saturdays and they could do homework together. Kathy feels that Amy is trying to convince her in keeping the baby and not giving it up for adoption. But Amy tells her that these are very personal decisions and no one can try changing them. Just then Amy finds out that her locker has been broken into and her purse is missing; the thousand dollars were in the purse.

He tells Ben that Alice wanted him to talk to Ben. Ben tells him about the fire. But Henry already knows about it as Alice had told him. He tells Henry whatever happened. He feels that he is going to jail. Leo arrives and tells Ben that according to Dylan’s statement, they checked the gas lines and it seems they ran too close to the electrical. So bottom line, Ben is off the hook. Leo wants Ben to stay away from Dylan and be only with Henry and Alice. But then Ben tells Leo that he had sex with Alice. Leo then asks him to stay off everyone.

Amy arrives home and tells Ricky about Ethan hitting on Kathy. But Ricky feels that when two messed up kids ends up together, they turn out to be okay. He also tells her about Clementine. He then asks about the money her grand mom accidentally sent her. But Amy does not tell him that she lost it. She says that they could talk about it later. Jack helps Grace in painting her room. He tells her that he loves her and that he wants to have sex with her. He does not want to be in a relationship without having sex. Grace says that she doesn’t want to have sex but they can definitely make out and fool around. He says that he will think about it and leaves.
