Yolanda confides that Bella drank wine in a party at her friend’s beach house. She understands why Bella partied because it is summer and “that’s what kids do.” She says Bella decided to go to the gas station and was stopped by authorities.

Eileen’s niece, Annamarie, hangs out with her aunt in the kitchen. Eileen shares that Annamarie is the daughter of her sister, Connie, who passed away. Annamarie lives for three years with them as a nanny. Eileen almost cries when she says Annamarie is the daughter she never had.
Eileen asks for Annamarie’s help to read through the lines of the script. She remembers that when she quitted acting, Vince thought it was great. However, they fought a lot because of money issues. When she decided to go back, Vince was ecstatic. “But you don’t have to!” Vince exclaimed. Still, it was obvious that Vince thought it was a great idea to let Eileen work again.
Eileen was nominated in the Emmys for “Days of Our Lives.” She was more than happy to actually win it. Annamarie carries the heavy trophy before Eileen tells her the run-through will start.

Ken is complaining that the bags are all heavy. Finally, they are on their way to Palm Springs.
Eileen takes her son, Jesse, to work. She thinks the best thing about working in a soap opera is she can bring her children. She remembers Jesse crawled for the first time in her dressing room. She was working but never missed moments with her children. She says Jesse grew up at CBS. He even played with the “Price Is Right” wheel. One time, she heard Jesse crying in the dressing room while she was on set. It made her milk come out, but she still kept on acting. “Working mother, lactating,” Eileen jokes.
Yolanda brings lunch to her husband’s office. She thanks David for being a good stepfather and being okay with Mohamed during Bella’s problem.

Rinna can relate because Harry is 12 years older than her. Lisa tells everyone that they must not judge her son, although she becomes sarcastic when she says she learned that a child’s loyalty is always to the person sleeping with him, not to the one who raised him for 20 years. She is not close with Max’s girlfriend because their age gap is strange for her. However, she is aware that it is a “battle” she is never going to win.
The gay friends of Lisa thank her for giving them the chance to voice out their real gender and supporting them all the way. Lisa is touched and slowly cries. She changes the topic by making Rinna share something.
