Danny meets a fortune teller who decides to plan a con with Danny and tells him that she can have him meet up with his mother if he brings along some items of hers. At dinner, Margaret suggests to Guy that he take Ann to the carnival. Guy says that he usually takes Eric Dexter. Margaret says that he spends an awful lot of time with Eric, considering Guy is not fond of children. Guy relents and says he will take Ann to the carnival. Danny gets some things of his mothers and takes Teddy's car to the carnival and almost runs over Teddy. Teddy tells Nathan what has happened and they both head for the carnival. Guy takes Ann to the carnival and sees John with a girl getting on the Ferris wheel. In anger Ann goes to one of the games while Guy goes to get ride tickets and steals a prize. The carny grabs Ann and causes an uproar. The police arrive at the carnival with Margaret in tow and Guy pays the carny off. The cop tells the carny he should not have called the police. Nathan and Teddy arrive at the tent while Danny is getting a reading. Mme. Zeena gives Danny back the money and belongings and they head home. Danny confides in Nathan that he was the only one not at the hospital when his mother died and he feels left out. The cop arrives back at the carnival and tells the carny that Margaret is shutting it down.
