Jana tells her there is one thing that is left that should put a smile on her face as it always has before. She says at least she is rich.

Gloria says she use to think money was the answer to it all but she found out that it isn’t. She wants to know how it was in for her in prison because she thinks Jeffery is going to have her put in prison. Jana tells Gloria she needs a new project to focus on. She suggests that she helps plan her and Kevin’s wedding but Kevin doesn’t like that idea.

Michael is on the phone when Lauren walks in. When he hangs up she asks him if that was Jack’s law firm. He tells her no and he isn’t talking to them anymore. She says Oh great, and then she asks if things got that bad that he has to let the attorney’s handle it. He tells her no, he has decided to drop the case against Jack. He explains to her why he decided to drop the case. He says he was suing Jack for all the wrong reasons and he realizes he can’t do that. He wants her and Fenmore to be proud of him.

Jana tells him she left and he says he needs to talk to her. She says well Gloria needs him. Then Kevin walks up and says no she doesn’t and asks him if he is calling the cops on his mother. Jeffery says calm down no one is calling the police. He says the marriage is over so he is going to file for the divorce. He tells them, he gets a small reasonable settlement from Gloria and she gets the contaminated face cream. Kevin asks if she gets it all and he says she gets it all.

Kevin walks away and Jana tells Jeffery she doesn’t want to see Gloria hurt anymore.

She says she won’t hold anything against him anymore and she will hope he won’t against her now that her days at the Abbott Mansion are over. She walks away leaving him surprised.

Later Jack sees Michael and they talk about the lawsuit. Michael tells him he dropped the suit. Jack asks why. He tells him that he believes a good father makes a good roll model for his children. He says he thinks it would be a fair statement to say that John was a good roll model for him. Jack agrees. Michael says he never had that when he was growing up.
