The episode begins with Fiona and Holly J. being obviously flirtatious. Fiona complements Holly J. on her appearance and Holly J. begins to put a necklace on Fiona. Fiona then tells Holly J. she loves her and the two are about to kiss when Fiona wakes up, revealing the whole thing was just a dream. Later, Fiona tells Holly J. she still has feelings for Adam, and plans for the two to watch a movie at her condo. The two start off flirting and then proceed to make out on the couch. While making out, Fiona slides her hand up Adam's shirt, and comments how she likes his girlish figure. Adam disappointingly tells Fiona that he is a guy and that she needs to face the facts that she wants a girl. Fiona then realizes she is truly in love with Holly J. The two have a girls night and watch the movie The Notebook. Fiona asks her about Declan and Holly J. implies she still loves him. Fiona's mom comes to her condo and Fiona comes out of the closet. She is happy to discover her mother is very supportive. Mrs. Coyne tells her she only wants Fiona to be happy and that she can handle anything. She then crawls in bed with Holly J. and goes to sleep, tearful. The next day, she visits Holly J. at the hospital and comes out to her as well, with even more support. Holly J. asks if Fiona has any love interests at the moment, to which Fiona replies "For now I'm just happy to have my friend."

Later she talks to Coach Armstrong (although no dialogue is heard) and he seems to understand the situation. Then, Owen comes into the Dot and thanks Anya for letting him back into CPR and asks for her number. She acknowledges his thanks but still shows no interest in him. He then hugs her and smells her hair. She shoves him back and yells at him. He then asks, "What's wrong with you?" and that any girl would want him to flirt with them.
