Tsukushi: "I haven't got status, or money, or beauty. There are lots of girls at Eitoku who have all three. I just can't figure out why it's me. The only explanation I can think of is that you're crazy."
Tsukasa: "Maybe you're right. I wonder the same thing myself, but love can't be figured out. I've got the status, money, and beauty so you can stay as you are."
Nishida is a little frightened when Kaede Domyoji declares "I won't allow [the Domyoji fortune] to be destroyed by Tsukasa's whims." Meanwhile, Tsukasa Domyoji says "I'm hungry" but refuses to go home. Tsukushi Makino's stomach growls as well so they decide to try fishing. Tsukasa sneezes while they are talking. She offers to share a blanket, but becomes nervous when she notices how close they are. Tsukasa then says "If you tense up like that, I can't do anything." She moves immediately.
Tsukushi asks Tsukasa "What exactly makes you think that I love you?!" He just says "I can tell," before asking her "How do you feel about me?" She says "I don't know!" and then asks "Why me?" Tsukasa does not have an answer, telling her "Love can't be figured out." At Tsukasa's house, Tsubaki Domyoji asks Nishida "What are you planning to do to Tsukasa?" However, he cannot tell her. In the car, Nishida admits to a colleague that Kaede "frightens [him]" since she treats her children as "just more assets."
Tsukasa and Tsukushi only end up catching kelp. He has become slightly cranky due to his hunger. She then suddenly remembers her birthday present to him, homemade cookies. Tsukushi finds them still in the bag. Tsukasa walks up behind her, saying "You're hiding something, aren't you?" He wrestles it from her and quickly opens the package. Tsukasa stares at the cookies for several moments. Embarrassed, Tsukushi tells him "Just give them back to me!" He then kisses her and declares "I'm so happy!"
