Still at the firm, Addy, now wearing a plum-colored strapless dress, finds Malcolm in his tuxedo. They're impressed with each other. She was looking for him to tell him the judge has an opening to hear them in twenty minutes, which means they'll be going to the courthouse in their party clothes. Speaking of which: At the party, the festivities are just getting under way. Cliff, seeing Susan in her spider-shoulder dress, is stunned. They flirt with each other, all their past problems seemingly forgotten.
At the courthouse, Beth and Dylan track down the ADA and put their plan into action. The ADA is hesitant, thinking that because minors were involved... Dylan cuts her off: "There were no exigent circumstances, so it was an illegal search and seizure in violation of the Fourth Amendment." The ADA is impressed and tells them to enjoy their party. They race off towards the elevator, passing Addy and Malcolm along the way. In the courtroom, the judge calls them "James Bond and Grace Kelly." Heh. Malcolm presents the settlement to the insurance company by handing them a single dollar bill. The insurance lawyers are like, "Buh?" Addy explains that the bus company restructured the settlement and paid Mia one dollar and paid Connor $499,999, for his "loss of consortium, emotional distress, etc." The insurance company protests, but the judge finalizes the settlement. "Don't spend it all in one place," Malcolm says to the opposing team. Addy asks Malcolm to drop her off at home on the way to the party. She's kept Jason waiting long enough.
She runs into Jason in the lobby of her apartment building which looks crazy nice. He almost passes her by, not recognizing her in her finery. She starts to explain about the party and then admits she lied to him. Jason thinks she's embarrassed by him, but she assures him that's not the case. The minute he sees the seriousness of her expression, he guesses she's breaking up with him. "You're the best thing that's ever happened to me," she tells him. She tearfully explains that she's growing into someone else, and even though she's scared, she has to see where that takes her. He wants to know why she didn't tell him before he came out to L.A., but she didn't know before she saw him. "I'm so sorry," she says. He looks down. Sadness.
Party. Beth and Dylan show up and are suitably awed by the scene before them. Beth is less awed when she sees Liam's choice of date for the evening, a lawyer named Francesca who works for Beth's dad. Beth drags Liam off for a chat, which leaves Francesca to flirt with Dylan. Liam insists he didn't choose Francesca to make Beth angry, but Beth's not buying it. They argue quietly at first, but end up shouting about how they're in love. Naturally, this is the moment that the music grows quiet, allowing the entire party to hear the declaration. The party-goers toast them. Rowdy throws his arms into the air and lets out a victorious, "WAHOO!" I'm gonna miss that crazy little matchmaker. Addy finally arrives at the party, looking glum until Malcolm hands her a glass of champagne. They walk into the crowd, arm in arm. They pass by Cliff, who's confabbing with a congressman and his wife. He gets a call on his cellphone and excuses himself. He goes out to the parking lot and approaches a man in a car. "You are an idiot," he says to the man. He scolds the man for leaving his cellphone in the house, which Cliff tosses to him through the car window. The man reminds Cliff that he's still due some money. He threatens to go to the cops and tell them Cliff had him break into the house. Dun, dun, DUN. Cliff's not afraid: "That'll end well for you." He goes back to the party and the burglar drives off.
