Meanwhile, a janitor finds Nick still passed out and has him taken into the corridor where, as a crowd gathers, Marshall arrives with Aggie. As Nick revives, with some temporary short-term memory loss but otherwise okay, Marshall uses his first-aid training to care for him until the paramedics arrive. Nick gives Annie a sly wink when Marshall tells him his name until Aggie desperately interjects "His mother calls him "Mar." At this point Charisma comes by, and Marshall tries to explain that the evening's off. Charisma loses her temper and yells at him, "You were put on this Earth to slow me down!" As Marshall barely stops himself from saying "I hate you," the paramedics walk past them, carrying Nick on a stretcher, and as their eyes meet, she realizes her mistake too late.

Some days later, Nick stops by Charisma's home and, meeting Marshall outside, tells him gratefully that no matter what, he'll always be welcome in his home. Inside, Nick asks Charisma to look him in the eye and tell him she ''wouldn't'' be happier if both their children didn't exist. She can't. Realizing that it's over between them, Nick accepts a goodbye hug from Charisma as she tells him one last time she loves him. "I love you too," he says. "But I love my daughter more."

As they wait for Nick, Charisma asks Penny whether "her" father used to be apathetic, joyless and inactive, but has now become full of life. Penny reflects that her father, Rob, has in fact been a couch potato for years (the reason for this is revealed in a subsequent arc), and then recalls his having openly gawked at younger women earlier that day. Now convinced Rob ''is'' having an affair with Charisma, Penny hugs her in gratitude for supposedly bringing back the lively, fun dad she once knew, and by doing so, giving her parents another shot at happiness. This confuses Charisma, who knows Nick is a widower. At this point Karen turns up and, thinking Penny's "working the mom" to get at Marshall, trades insults with her, thus further frustrating Charisma.

Karen is still bra-shopping when she realizes she's lost track of the time and rushes to the food court in a panic, fearing the worst. Charisma stops Penny (who momentarily mistakes her grabbing her arm for sexual interest) from leaving and tells her they'll have to try and get along "if I'm gonna keep shagging your dad." Noting that Penny's retreated into stunned silence, Charisma angrily calls Nick, waking him up, and tells him to get over there. Aggie and Karen, both in tears, literally run smack into each other. As Karen runs off without a word, inadvertently contributing to a somewhat contrived mishap that knocks Nick unconscious inside the closet, Aggie is disturbed by the tingling feeling she's gotten from contact with her chest.

Added DiffLines:

* TeenPregnancy: In a {{Flashback}}, Charisma's mother admonishes her that being pregnant so early will affect the rest of her life: "Party time's over now." Charisma counters that her pregnancy won't slow her down... then [[{{Irony}} falls on her butt]].

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfContextEavesdropping: While washing her stained blouse, Penny hears Aggie and Lisa entering the washroom and hides in a stall. She overhears Aggie saying such things as, "Yeah, it's gonna be fourteen pounds of awkward" and "I mean, dates are completely alien to me." As well, Penny apparently overhears, between that strip and the next one, plans to meet at the mall food court the next day. She assumes that Aggie has a date with a guy, because she missed the beginning of Aggie's and Lisa's conversation (also implied but not shown) which would've mentioned that Nick wanted him and Charisma to meet each other's kids.

Added DiffLines:

* EyelidPullTaunt: As Charisma leads her away from the table, Karen directs this at Penny, along with an implied YouAreFat insult: "Don't eat all the food yourself."


* {{Flashback}}

* {{Flashback}}{{Flashback}}: To Charisma's past.
