Olivia spills the beans about the bet to the women. They are furious, and vow to react negatively to whatever they receive. Sondra breaks her part of the deal after opening Elvin's gift. He gives her a single pearl, and vows to keep buying her one every year until she can have the necklace she has always wanted.

Cliff launches into a story about a barrette that Clair wanted when they were first dating as young teens, and claims that he tracked it down for her.
