Buzz comes in next and tells Josh he is nervous about his date with Lillian so Josh advises him to be hones with her about all his hopes and fears he also tells him to be himself.

Josh and Cassie walk down to Company and look inside the window at Lizzie Beth and Leah having lunch and smile at how they are getting along with each other. Cassie has to leave to do an errand and a few minutes later Lizzie and Leah start to fight because Leah and Beth agree that Lizzie is too obsessed about the baby. Leah tells Lizzie that the baby doesn’t need a baby shower just two sisters who love and support her. Leah then calls Beth a tramp that has slept with almost all the men in town. Lizzie throws food at Leah and a food fight begins Josh tries to stop things but Beth tells him to leave because he has caused enough problems. Josh then heads to Towers where he watches Buzz tell Lillian about all his past relationship failures and Lillian decides that its best that she and Buzz remain friends and leaves the club. Josh goes up to Billy’s room where Billy informs him that the alcoholic employee that he didn’t fire stole all the petty cash from the company. Josh is depressed so he goes to the hospital to talk to Reverend Rutledge who tells him before going into the labor room with his sister that he shouldn’t give anyone anymore advice and they will talk later. Reverend Rutledge tells Josh his sister had a boy and they share a cigar and Josh tells him how he messed up his friend’s life. Reverend Rutledge tells Josh he gave everyone good advice and he shouldn’t blame himself for the way things turned out. Josh arrives home and tells Cassie everything as well and she tells him that his friends didn’t need r want his advice they just needed someone to listen to them. Josh tries to fix what he messed up but he finds that when his friends return to the church for counseling things have worked themselves out.

Marina understands that Cyrus needed to marry someone to stay in the country and she didn’t want him to go back to Australia. Lizzie decides to help Rafael and Natalia get adjusted to living in the mansion since Beth didn’t want her help. Lillian thinks that it was good that Buzz was honest with her and decides to try dating again because she is ready to date. Billy tells Josh that the reason that he was so angry at the company employee who stole money is because he knew that he could be in the same situation if he didn’t have a loving family. Josh arrives home to tell Cassie how her advice worked and she falls asleep listening to him talk. Josh sits beside Cassie on the couch and realizes he was meant to be a minister.
