Unwilling to go to boarding school and fed up with his parents telling him what to do, Parker tells Liberty that they will do whatever it takes to be together; even getting married. While with Carly, Parker tells her that he’s going to see a hockey game, while back with Janet, Liberty tells her that she’s going to be with Brad checking out potential colleges. Once together the two teens head out of town, they go before the judge to get wed. The judge is instantly suspicious as to why they both want to rush into getting married so young. Parker tells the judge he wants to be emancipated because he feels that his parents have destroyed his life. As Parker is explaining further, the mention of boarding school comes out and the judge quickly realizes that it is the true reason why Parker and Liberty want to get married and promptly prepares to tell them no. At home in Oakdale Carly soon suspects that something is fishy and relays the information to Craig who instantly offers his help. Craig soon finds information on Parker’s computer and they head out. Meanwhile Parker and Liberty continue to plead their case to the judge by telling him that the main reason why they want to get married is to protect his trust fund from his mother. At that moment Carly and Craig arrive to hear Parker trashing Carly’s character and when she has an outburst begging Parker not to do what he’s thinking, the judge takes Parker’s side and decides to grant the teens what they want. Craig quickly calls Jack and Janet and tell them to get down to the judge’s chambers immediately.

When they all return home Jack wipes the smug look of Parker’s face when he tells him that he no longer wants either one of them at the farmhouse. Carly and Janet are livid and take their anger out on Jack who stands his ground. When Janet leaves to go look for the newly married teens Jack and Carly start to argue about who is at fault for Parker’s actions. Carly tells Jack she doesn’t even recognize who he is anymore and storms out. Craig later calls and tells Carly that he’s located Parker and Liberty and gave them a room at the Lakeview. Carly decides to keep Jack in the dark but inform Janet about it. Meanwhile Jack heads home and is confronted by Janet who still can’t believe she kicked their children out. When Jack tells her he’s not sorry for what he did Janet keeps the news about their whereabouts to herself. Back at the Lakeview.
