Tony is very angry that she lied to him once again. Tony wonders if she will ever stop lying to people.

Buzz explains they are trying to raise money for Marina to go to Northwestern University and surprise Marina with the tuition. Darcy wants to make a contribution but Frank overhears Buzz and Darcy's conversation and refuses her contribution.

At the Cabin, Shayne gives Marina his yearbook for her to sign. Marina looks at all the signatures from girls in the book and reads some of the mushy ones out loud. Shayne shows Marina a picture of herself that he carries in his wallet. Shayne tells Marina she is the only girl he cares about and says he will take her picture out of his wallet if it makes her uncomfortable.  Marina gives Shayne a kiss. Ben continues to watch them through the window. Marina apologizes to Shayne and says that for a long time she was so focused on being with the wrong guy, that she never noticed that the right guy had always been there for her.

At Company, Darcy thinks Frank doesn't want her money because it isn't good enough for him. Frank explains that he feels bad enough that he has to take money from his father and sister for Marina. Frank tells Darcy he doesn't want her to think that he can't provide the things he needs for his daughter. Darcy tells Frank she thinks he is a wonderful father who is willing to do anything so his daughter can have the things she needs. Darcy says she understands if he doesn't want to take money from his girlfriend. Frank is startled by Darcy's use of the word girlfriend, because when he hears that word, he thinks of a class ring and letterman jacket. Darcy says Frank can give her his letterman jacket if he will let her make a contribution to the Marina fund. Frank agrees to the deal.

At the Beacon, Tony interrupts Marah and Josh's conversation to tell Marah he is going to New York with Eden, but before he can say anything, Marah says she is having a really important conversation with her father, and whatever he has to say will have to wait until later. Tony says okay and leaves without saying a word.

Outside the Beacon, Eden asks Tony if Marah is okay with him going to New York with her. Tony tells Eden that the subject never came up and if they leave now they can be back home before Marah knows they have been gone.

Inside the Beacon, Marah wonders why her father has changed so much that he has become so old and set in his ways, that he would turn down a trip to Italy with the woman he loves. Josh resents being called old and unromantic and decides to go see Reva in Italy.

At the Cabin, Shayne and Marina kiss some more and Marina goes into the bedroom to slip into something more comfortable. Marina looks at her self in the mirror and puts her nightgown against her body to see how it will look when she puts it on for Shayne. She goes to the drawer to get something and puts the nightgown between her teeth so she can use both hands to open the drawer. Someone comes up behind Marina and Marina screams, but Shayne doesn't hear her since the nightgown is in her mouth.

In New York, Tony and Eden arrive at the airport and are surprised to find a limo - compliments of Salerno.

At the Beacon, Bill arrives and wonders if Buzz has seen Marah. Buzz says that she and Josh were there earlier but they left. Buzz explains that he is waiting for Billy so they can go on a fishing trip. Bill tells Buzz he thinks he made a mistake by not stepping into a situation and letting someone else play the hero. Buzz thinks that if you force yourself into a situation you can't handle, just to play the hero, you might end up making the situation worse. Bill asks Buzz not to tell Billy he is dating Eden because he wants to introduce them to each other himself.

At the cabin, a nervous Shayne waits for Marina to come out of the bedroom. He can't wait any longer because he thinks Marina has taken too long. He knocks on the bedroom door and calls Marina's name. When Marina doesn't answer him, he opens the door and looks all over the room - Marina is gone.

Outside the cabin, we see Ben carrying Marina and putting her in his car. Once she is in the car, Ben starts the engine.
