Cassidy still has a Visa debt, a crazy pet parrot and a penchant for expensive underwear. And she still has the gorgeous Sam Tasker (he of the tall, dark and dropdead handsome looks) - although Sam appears to have lost her phone number.

Phoebe figures she might as well take advantage of her situation, as young people are encouraged to do in the free-market economy, and it's about then that Jackson Sinclair, the impossibly sexy policeman, starts asking some difficult questions and Phoebe has to figure out if she wants him to kiss her or arrest her.
