Cane and Lily are happy to hear that Mac hasn’t changed her mind. They ask if Billy finally came around. She tells them no, they broke up though. Back at Jimmy’s Billy finally stops the jukebox by unplugging it and he goes back to drinking his shots until he decides to just drink it straight from the bottle. He thinks back to the good times and the bad times he and Mac have had together. He says Mac is wrong and he tucks in his shirt and grabs his keys and runs out.

Emily hesitates to accept Jack’s invitation. She says she is treating his ex-wife who is obsessed with her. She says plus there is the fact that Patty now has her face.

He says always be open to love no matter where it is coming from. Everyone raises their glass to make a toast to that as they yell out Cheers!

Dr Peterson asks Mac what happens if she resents her choice or if she bonds with the baby. Also she has to ask what if Lily doesn’t make it, will Mac be able to step away from the baby she carried for 9 months and will she remember it isn’t her baby to raise. Emily tells her to think some more about this and if she is still sure this is what she wants to do them she will set up some official sessions with her.

They find one there addressed to Lauren which she is quite surprised by. They think the box is so pretty until they both jump back as they open it when they find a live rat running around in the bottom of the box.

Emily is pleased to hear that Patty remembers what happened at St Luke’s with Paul. She says that means she is still reachable. Paul tells her that Jack has offered resources to get whatever help Patty needs. He says it is so strange to feel grateful to Jack since he is the main reason Patty is so messed up. Paul says maybe it is because Jack seems to be taking a good look at his actions. He says Jack had been nothing but compassionate since Patty got arrested and he was also behind Traci in her decision to donate Colleen’s heart to Victor. Paul thinks that surely this could mean that Jack has changed.

Billy admits to Lily that this surrogate thing is a huge hurdle for him and Mac and yes it is because it will be Cane’s baby. Lily tells him to go to the cafeteria and talk to Mac.

Nick and Phyllis come back to the rooftop because they forgot a jacket up there. She says sadly that Daniel actually married Amber so now it is over. Nick tells her he knows being Amber’s mother in law won’t be easy but he is so proud of her for not trying to put a stop to the wedding. Nick says they have a sitter for Summer for as long as they want so he thinks they should go out for dinner and a nightcap and perhaps even get a room for the night. She knows he is only doing this to distract her but she is all for his idea.

Katherine and Murphy cozy up together on the couch. She says thank heavens Amber and Daniel weren’t there when Lauren opened that box. They wonder who would do such a mean thing. When they hear the door opening they assume it is going to be Mac so Murphy says he will leave them for some girl talk. He tells her not to be too long though as he heads upstairs. Mac walks in crying telling Katherine she and Billy are over.

Billy tells Chance he must be some kind of super hero to have come straight from the hospital and already having Chloe in bed with him. Chance asks Billy what he wants.
