Still suffering a crisis of confidence after his accident, Phil is fuming to hear Jay is going to Carol's birthday party and tells him he needs to choose whether his loyalty is with the Mitchells or the Brannings.

Ronnie challenges Phil over his ultimatum, but rather than back down, he storms off to the bash and demands Jay go with him. As Joey and Jack square up to Phil, David steps in and suggests the Mitchells leave rather than ruin the party.
