Fallon tries to secure Liam's favorite singing duo, Kelly and Donna, to sing at their wedding. Kirby is still mad at Sam, but her sexual relationship with Adam has resumed. Adam's supervisor, Dr. Bailey, threatens to have him fired for stealing drugs for Jeff, but intimates that she might forget about it if he stops rejecting her advances. Cristal feels guilty about kissing Caleb. Blake buys her a diamond necklace that, according to Fallon, means Blake has done something bad, and Cristal soon figures out that he slept with Laura.

Fallon embarrasses herself trying to impress Kelly and Donna, but steps in to sing with Donna when Kelly falls ill. Caleb comes to Cristal's rescue, and they have sex.
