At the hospital, Phil tells Mac that Greg was behind the kidnapping, but Mac knows he's lying. Phil dies.Peter is upset with Sylvia's drinking, because she talks too much. Sylvia says she wants Peter to get money from Abby for her, or she will tell a tabloid the truth, because she doesn't care who pays her as long as she gets money.Lotus Point has a grand re-opening. Paige spots Peter, and is definitely interested in him. Sylvia makes a drunken spectacle of herself. She has a "spell" and asks Peter to pick up a refill of her prescription. The pharmacist tells Peter that if Sylvia takes too many pills, it will cause cardiac arrest so Peter purposely gives her too many.

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Peter: Why would Abby Ewing wanna give you a dime?
        Sylvia: Because she knows what I know - that you're no more Greg Sumner's brother than I am. Now, she must be getting something from you in exchange for keeping her mouth shut. Now she wouldn't mind giving me a little pin money to protect her investment in you.

      • Olivia: I've got some stuff here that would make this party really interesting. Want some?
        Paige: No, thanks, I don't do drugs. I think they're stupid.

      • (At the Lotus Point re-opening celebration)
        Laura: That's Mack's daughter, Paige 'something-or-other.'
        Greg: You're kidding me, I didn't know Mack had a daughter.
        Laura: Neither did he until recently.
        Greg: Spare me the details. I already have this weird sensation that all your friends have soap opera lives.

    • NOTES (3)

      • The establishing shot used as Sylvia's apartment building is the same one which was used four years earlier to show where Abby & Gary were meeting secretly behind Val's back during season three.

      • TV Guide gave this episode a "Cheers" in its Cheers & Jeers column because Paige (Nicollette Sheridan) "just said no" when offered drugs by Olivia (Tonya Crowe).

      • Louis Giambalvo makes his last appearance in this episode as Karen's abductor, Phil Harbert.
