In Las Vegas, Ali is disguised in a Mardi-Gras like get-up and flips when she hears Mike telling Carrie how much he loves her. She shatters the glass she was holding out anger. Nancy and Craig wonder what is going on, so Nancy decides to do some investigating. Mike and Carrie take to the dance floor and Mike tells her that this night is only getting started. Mike tells her that she is the only woman in his heart, he'll never desert her. Mike tells Carrie it's time for her next surprise, but first he kisses her.

Ali runs into the bathroom and Nancy follows her. Ali thinks that she and Craig set this up, but Nancy says they are not responsible for Mike's feelings. Ali goes berserk on her and Nancy slaps some sense into her. She tells Ali that she's going to have to deal with the fact that Mike loves Carrie. Nancy tells her that Mike will never love or marry her. Ali tells Nancy that she wasn't there when Mike made love to her and to hear the promises he made. Nancy tells her that what Mike did to her was horrible, and now she has to sue him. Craig shows up and asks what is wrong? Ali says she knows what she has to do. Nancy asks what she's going to do? Ali says she's going to call her mom. Nancy is worried about her, but Ali says she has to move on and do what she came here to do. Ali leaves and Craig tells Nancy that she was right, Ali is a loose cannon.

Back in the restaurant, Carrie and Mike watch some magicians. Later Mike and Carrie shoot craps, and they win big. When Mike goes to bet it all, he kisses Carrie for luck, and wins!

Craig tells Nancy that they should go out to celebrate. Nancy asks "what about Ali the time bomb?" Ali looks at Carrie and says that it's time everyone knows what a lying bitch she is.

Roman is talking with Kate about Roberto's condition. Kate asks what this has to do with her? Roman tells her that is what he'd like to know. Roman tells Kate about the drug mix-up which almost killed Roberto, and the mysterious third nurse at the hospital. Kate acts appalled that Roman is accusing her of putting Roberto in his coma. Roman says he's not accusing her of anything, he wanted to know if she saw anyone suspicious at the hospital. Kate says no, she wasn't even looking for anything suspicious. Kate wishes she could help. Roman tells her that she can, if she remembers anything then she should tell him. Roman gets a call from Eric, who tells him that they are all waiting for him at the Tuscany. Roman says he got delayed, but will be right there. When Roman tells Kate what is up with Nicole, he realizes she doesn't like Nicole and asks why? We never hear Kate's answer.

At the table, Nicole refuses to let Taylor talk about their mother. She eventually tells Taylor they should go freshen up and give their mom a call. Marlena tells Eric that Taylor and Nicole remind her of Carrie and Sami. Nicole and Taylor argue, Taylor accuses Nicole of being ashamed of her family. Taylor tells Nicole that it sickens her to see her lying to Eric. Nicole asks her sister why she just can't be happy for her. Nicole asks Taylor to at least try and get along with her. Taylor agrees, but only for Eric's sake. Back at the table, Caroline and Shawn ask Eric if he thinks Nicole is his soul mate. Nicole returns and tells them that Taylor is still talking to their mom on the phone. Eric asks Nicole to dance, and the two take to the floor. Lucas is now dining with Heather, and when he sees Eric and Nicole dancing, he suggests to Heather that they dance. When Eric leaves Nicole's side to get her some champagne, Lucas uses the opportunity to talk to Nicole about his wonderful date. However, Lucas tells Nicole that she can't kiss like her. Roman shows up and wonders what they are doing together. Eric returns and asks what is up? Roman says that is what he was wondering. Nicole says that Lucas was just filling her in on her next photo shoot. Lucas decides to get back to his date and the others join the party. Eric suggests that they order food, but Nicole asks to say something first. Nicole tells them all how nervous she was about meeting them, but she feels so comfortable around them, she only wishes Sami could be here. Nicole goes on and tells them that she did things when she was younger that she regrets, but Eric has changed her, he's made her a better person. Nicole tells Eric that she wants to make him happy. Caroline and Shawn tell Nicole that was wonderful. Taylor decides she doesn't feel well and decides to leave. Austin also decides to call it a night, and he walks Taylor out. Austin walks Taylor out and offers to drive her home. Taylor wonders how people who love each other lie to one another? Austin says he was wondering the same thing.

Back at Lucas and Heather's table, Heather asks Lucas why he keeps looking at Nicole, is something going on between them? Lucas tells Heather that Nicole is his future wife. Heather tells Lucas that while they are being honest, his mom set this up. Lucas tells Heather that there is no way he's going to date her, and she can tell his mom her plan was a bust. That pisses Heather off because she realizes that Lucas asked her out to make Nicole jealous. Heather calls Lucas a creep and walks off.

At the Cheatin' Heart, Bo and Billie are talking and shooting pool. Bo tells Billie about his fight with Hope and how she doesn't want to connect with him. Billie tells Bo she thinks she knows why, and she tells him that "Hope" is still upset about him committing to her in Rome. Bo doesn't understand why she can't get past this. Billie tells him that from a woman's point of view, when a man gives his heart to another woman, it is very painful. Bo realizes he shouldn't be talking to her about this, but Billie says she wants to talk to him about it. Bo doesn't understand why "Hope" hasn't been herself lately. Billie asks what he means, so Bo tells her about the picture of "Hope" and Stefano. He then tells Billie how "Hope" has also moved out of Mrs. H's house.

However, what is troubling him is that his name wasn't in the hotel records. "Hope" tells John that she knows his memory is a real one. John asks her how she knows? "Hope" claims that she too is having memories of being Gina. "Hope" tells John that what he felt for Gina was beautiful, nothing to be ashamed of. She tells him that he had a wonderful and fulfilling life before he met Marlena, and he can have that life again.

Nicole says she only wants to make Eric happy. Roman asks how Lucas fits in? Nicole says that Lucas is her boss. Roman leaves to take a call and Nicole asks Marlena if she share's Roman's opinion of her? We never hear Marlena's answer because both Eric and Roman return, Eric went to order his parents dessert.

"Hope" says she doesn't want to believe the thought of her being with Stefano, just like he doesn't want to believe he was the love of Gina's life. "Hope" says they don't have to go through this alone, they can help each other. "Hope" asks John to let her help him. John wants to know the truth and accepts her offer. "Hope" takes John by the hand and leads him to Tuscany. John asks her what they are doing? "Hope" tells him that they are going to recreate the memory he had at the hotel with Gina. John orders some Don Renard 76, but the waiter doesn't have it, so "Hope" orders 88. "Hope" excuses herself to use the bathroom. John opens and pours the champagne and when "Hope" comes back, John pours her a glass. He tells her that he didn't want it to get warm and lose its effervescence. "Hope" remembers the old John saying the same thing, and she is positive he remembers. John remembers it too, and tells "Hope" that the memory was real. "Hope" encourages John to try and remember what happened next. Meanwhile, Marlena excuses herself from her table and sees John and "Hope" staring into each other's eyes, almost as they are about to kiss.

"Hope" doesn't understand why she doesn't want John to remember his past? Marlena says she does want John to remember, but she doesn't understand why SHE wants it so badly?
