Plot OverviewEdit

After some moments of fear and desperation, Jason finds LB in the attic. Jeff and he finally reconcile and agree that the wedding is going to take place in California, but Sable is terrified about this outrageous idea. Jason doesn't care and even orders her to take care of all the arrangements.


Dominique wants Monica to rehire Neil and confronts her with some careless mistakes she has committed.

Sable explains to Miles her being in Zach's place and breaks the news about the wedding to him. Furiously, Miles accuses Fallon of being selfish and trying to get back at him for the rape. Sable and Fallon discuss the wedding and end up fighting again.

Garrett warns Jason that the divorce might get too expensive for Colby Enterprises. The Mahoney case worries Jason, but the only subject which seems to worry Miles is the wedding.

Zach wants to sleep with Sable, but after her embarrassing encounter with Miles she is of the opinion that they'd better be reasonable. Their discussion is taped by the hired investigator, who hands the tape directly to Conny.


Jeff apologizes to Frankie for his behavior after the trial and asks her to stay for the wedding in L.A.

Miles and Zach talk about the murder affair and Sable and finally make a "gentlemen’s agreement": Miles promises not to tell Jason about Zach and Sable and Zach promises in return to help him with the murder case.

Jason wants Conny to retire, but she refuses.


Fallon and Jeff are a little bit sad that Blake and Krystle are not able to attend the engagement party, but they decide to enjoy the evening in spite of it and in spite of all tensions.

Sable attacks Frankie again which makes Jason very angry.

Monica, encouraged by Dominique, asks Neil to come back to Titania Records - on business terms only.

Miles turns up drunk, he almost ruins the party, but finally wishes Fallon and Jeff good luck. In fact, he has no intention to give up Fallon for good.

Info Alert Edit

Production detailsEdit

  • Shooting Dates: From January 29, 1986 to February 6, 1986.
  • Filming locations: Paramount studios; Paley Residence (Bel Air); Rodeo Collection (Beverly Hills).
  • Shortened scene: Before he talks to Fallon, Jeff meets Constance and they have a brief discussion.


  • Jason Colby: I've told you, I'll tell you again and it's true as God: this house belongs to this family, all the Colbys, including Jeff.
    Sable Colby: Fine. We'll share it. Jeff can stay here... for a while [raising her voice] But I will not see him marry that girl in this house!
  • Garrett Boydston: Divorce Sable?
    Jason Colby: I want it over. Quickly and painlessly.
    Garret Boydston: Those words don't excist in the Colby lexicon.
  • Sable Colby: Now, first of all: colour schemes. Since I think we can hardly get away with virginal white, or ivory or even beige, I had thought: persimmon.
    Fallon Colby: Persimmon! Look, Sable, I'll choose my own wedding dress, thank you!
  • Sable Colby: Eavesdropping, Conny? Maybe we should get the keyholes raised to eye level. It'll be easier on your back.
  • Sable Colby: [to Frankie] Just remember: stay out of my way. And, if you can control yourself for a change, stay out of my husbands bed, too.
