Aside from the spectacular
clothes, showstopping musical acts, and tender remembrances of those who

height of embarrassment for Bobbie and Jerry- and the setup for a new
heartbreak for Lucy. At week's start, Lucy asks Emily to screen
her school HIV video project at the ball. But, unbeknowst to them,
the tape Emily retrieves from Tony is of Bobbie and Jerry making love!
Carly informs Jason that she is going to the ball with AJ and asks for
her diamonds. But AJ wants to give her gems himself. Later,
pained by Robin's absence, Jason opens up to Carly about Robin's fight
with HIV. At the same time, Lucy confides in Alan that she and
Scotty have alternative parenting plans in the works. Later,
