- Several important things occured at the 2011 Father Daughter Dance:
- Ethan Whitehorse must help Emma Becker prepare so as not to cast suspicion that she is not the real Sutton Mercer.
- Alec Rybak notes the price tag on his daughter, Mads', new dress, realizing she is saving it to send the money to Thayer.
- Alec drinks too much, getting angry and accusing Sutton of having something to do with Thayer's relocation to Los Angeles. In the process, he gets involved in a physical altercation with Ethan Whitehorse- he does not, however, end up pressing charges.
