Nick and Phyllis keep looking at each other until he walks over and asks her what she thought of Cloe’s Valentine’s Day piece. They both admit they hate fighting with each other like this. They both said they regret the things they said. Phyllis admits it bothers her that Nick refuses to see Sharon as a threat to their marriage. He tells her she makes things worse by acting out. Phyllis wonders where they go from here. He says he doesn’t know but his sleeping on the couch isn’t the answer. He should be home with his wife and daughter. Phyllis tells him that is a good first step and suggests that they go home. They both admit they missed each other.

Jimmy tells Lily she tasted her drinks and says she is sorry, she doesn’t get the job but says the cutie that was helping her make the drinks can have it if he wants it.

Esther and Roger kiss each other as they start out the door. They walk right past Clint who is hiding behind the newspaper as he thinks so far so good as long as Katherine or Marge stays out of their way everything will be just fine.

Katherine calls Michael and leaves a message telling him the ring isn’t a dead end after all and asks him to call her. She says there still might be hope for the DNA test.

Amber comes out to try and help Kevin. Gill tells her they found her cell phone at the pawn shop and they are holding it for evidence. He tells her that a crime has been committed and he is curious as to how come now those two are all chummy when just a few days ago she wanted him to arrest Kevin. He tells them to go ahead and play their games but in the meantime he will be collecting evidence and the next time they talk it will be downtown.
