- Mike continues to harbor annimosity against both Bill & Laura. Mike can barely stand the sight of her, but when Mickey talks ill of Laura, Mike instinctively jumps to her defense.
- Rebecca gives birth to a baby boy with Robert at her side who they name "Doug" (at Robert's suggestion). Rebecca still holds the secret that she was the surrogate mother for Doug, who's the baby's natural father. Robert believes Johnny is the baby's father. Despite Robert & Rebecca's marriage, Rebecca confesses that she still loves Johnny.
- As Amanda's memory of her love for Neil returns, she and Neil learn that Phyllis is pregnant with his baby. Meanwhile, Phyllis considers abortion because she believes that Neil doesn't want the baby. When Neil catches Amanda with JR (his old gambling buddy who's looking for him), he's concerned. Amanda confides to Neil that she's starting to remember him, but he denies they were ever in love. Later, Neil is quite jealous when he catches Phyllis in her ex-husband Bob's arms.
- Despite her increasingly fragile health, Adele takes a potentially fatal drink causing both Bob and Brooke much worry. Adele wants Bob to take care of Brooke (who he doesn't know is his daughter) if anything happens to her. Adele is forced to have emergency surgery. Brooke later buys the tickets for their cruise (with money stolen from Anderson Manufacturing), but Tom tells her that Adele won't live long enough to take the cruise. Meanwhile, Bob has learned of the thefts and has hired a P.I. to investigate. David and Paul Grant are suspects.
- In order to alleviate Mike's insecurities about his manhood, Linda takes him to bed! Linda is worried when Mike makes far more out of the encounter than she'd intended.
- Concerned about Laura's well-being, Marlena convinces Mike to talk to Laura. Mike & Laura call an awkward truce.
- Feeling that he's lost Julie to Don for good, Doug gives up all hope and proposes marriage to Kim who quickly accepts. Don/Julie and Doug/Kim begin to plan dueling weddings - including locations at churches right around the corner from one another, one hour apart.
- David & Valerie have fallen in love. He proposes marriage, but she's worried about how her parents will react. Mrs. Grant doesn't want her daughter marrying a white man. Julie isn't quite so in favor of the young couple's planned marriage, either.
