After Victor comes out of his seizure, his doctor suggests that he increase the dosage of his medication. As Nick makes plans for a surprise engagement party, Neil interrupts and asks him about leaving Sharon. Nick admits it wasn't easy but both he and Sharon realized it couldn't be saved. Nick asks him about Carmen and Neil insists they are just friends though Nick guesses they've become close at work. Neil hints there was more trouble the night of the gala but will only say that Dru is getting therapy because of it. Sharon, Carmen and Jack meet with Phyllis to discuss publicity plans for NVP. Phyllis is upset when Jack thanks Sharon for all her help, pointing out that her well-known face has assisted in a big way. After the meeting, Jack offers to take Sharon to some meetings in the Caribbean but she claims that she can't leave Noah. Jack urges her to reconsider. Later, finding Dru still not dressed, Sharon convinces her to go out with her for a drink. Sharon calls Nick about taking Noah for a few days so she can go out of town on business. When he asks who's going with her, Sharon ends the conversation and then advises Dru to forget about Neil for awhile. Meanwhile, Carmen tells a stunned Phyllis about Dru destroying her clothes. When Dru approaches her at the Athletic Club, Carmen reminds her about the court order. Jack signs the papers for Jeff and reminds him that no one can know of Jack's involvement in the deal. During his visit with Victor, Jack talks about the loan and later, Nikki is upset when Victor admits he gave Jack money to buy Jabot. Nikki blasts Jack for taking advantage of Victor and claims that Victor actually likes Jack.
