[Door opens]

Liza: You really are difficult to read. Maybe I just misunderstood you.

Damon: I guess I make that easy to do sometimes.

Liza: So, should we talk about these adoption papers? I'm sure you have a lot of questions.

Damon: I do have a lot of questions, but not about the papers. This is cool.

Liza: What is cool?

Damon: Having a normal conversation that doesn't end with one of us slamming out the door.

Liza: So you want to know why I'm being nice to you?

Damon: Pretty much. Yeah.

Liza: Damon, I'm -- I'm really not that difficult to understand. Listen, you just show me a little decency and respect, I will show you the same in return.

Damon: That works.

Liza: Ok, so prove it. Erase those pictures on your computer.

Damon: [Chuckles] Hey, I'm all about peace and everything, but let's not get carried away.

Tad: Let me get this straight. You want me to investigate Damon?

Colby: Yes.

Tad: Because you think he's cheating on you?

Colby: I am not crazy, Tad.

Tad: I didn't say you were, but I got to be honest. I don't think you got anything to worry about. And as far as I can tell, he's nuts about you.

Colby: Tad, but Damon has been acting shady.

Tad: Shady, how?

Colby: I don't know -- our relationship is different. He's all secretive, and he always seems to be in the middle of doing something. Tad, Damon is no saint.

Tad: Hardly.

Colby: Yes, and how many times has he messed up?

Tad: More times than I can count.

Colby: Exactly. And now he doesn't even want to go to New York with me. What does that say to you?

Tad: Well, I'll tell you what it doesn't say. It doesn't say he's going around your back and cheating on you. Hey, look, the fact is, Damon's been having to deal with a lot curve balls lately. Maybe what you're reading as him pulling away is simply him trying to figure things out.

Colby: You know, this was a really stupid idea. I should have never have come here.

Tad: Colby -- Colby, come on.

Colby: Tad, even if you did think something was up, you're Damon's dad, and you're a guy. You would just cover up for him, anyway.

Jesse: Natalia has been down there for two days. She's still hasn't come up with anything on Erica's crash?

Brot: Well, the NTSB isn't exactly being helpful.

Jesse: Well, what are they being exactly?

Brot: They are blocking her out, Chief.

Jesse: Blocking -- a plane falls from the sky and nobody down there wants to know why? Unbelievable. You know what?

Jesse: [Sighs] Doing this thing by the books, man, it's -- it's killing me. If I want to nail Hayward -- whoa -- I'm going to have to start playing by his rules.

Brot: Hmm. Well, you have something specific in mind?

Jesse: No, just -- thinking out loud.

Amanda: A gondola ride on the Grand Canal? How romantic would that be?

Jake: Molto romantic. Hey, look, it says right here, "Italians like to use their hands a lot to communicate." That's so funny, because that's the way I communicate. I wonder if I'm Italian. Hmm.

Amanda: Just with me, I hope.

Jake: Baby, of course, just with you. What's the matter?

Amanda: Good answer.

Jake: Of course. "Tolga i vostri vestiti."

Amanda: I'm afraid to ask.

Jake: It means "Take your clothes off -- "

Amanda: I don't believe this.

Jake: "Right now."

Amanda: Listen, I want this trip to be really special, and I know I'm going to be working part of it. But --

Jake: Mm-hmm?

Amanda: It's our first family vacation -- if you can get away.

Jake: Of course. Well, I'm trying to do everything I can to make sure that I can get away.

Amanda: All right. Well, do you know when you're going to find out?

Jake: I'm just waiting on a call from Angie.

Angie: Friday, July 2, 2010. Self-administered visual field test shows some degradation. Which was to be expected following the last episode. However, there has been no incident of vision loss in the last 48 hours. Has inflammatory process subsided? Have I lost all the retinal cells I'm going to lose? My appointment with Dr. Beldon should give some answers. Let's just hope they're the answers I'm looking for.

[Door opens]

Jesse: Hey.

Angie: Hey.

Jesse: What is this place, your new home away from home?

Angie: Uh, since I'm constantly being interrupted in the office --

Jesse: You hide out here? I get it. So listen, I hate to be another one of those interruptions, but this whole Erica/Hayward things is driving me nuts. Go to lunch with me.

Angie: Oh, sweetie, I -- I would love to, but I can't. I have to finish up this administrative report.

Jesse: Oh, come on. What could be more important than spending quality time with a devoted husband?

Angie: Oh, Jesse, come on, don't do that. I'll be feeling guilty for rest of the afternoon.

Jesse: Ahem. Something's up. You might as well tell me what it is, 'cause you know I'm not going to quit until I find out.

Tad: Honey, for the last time, would you sit down, please? Just give me a minute. Please? You're right about one thing, ok? He is my son. And that hasn't been easy. We finally inched our way to a good place, a place that doesn't give me agita 24/7. Ok? I don't think it's a good time for me to go digging behind his back for something that's not there.

Colby: But what if it is there, if it does exist?

Tad: But what if it's not? Where is that going to leave you? And me? I mean, let's face it -- the only thing he's guilty of so far is acting a little distant?

Colby: One second he is into me, the next second he is running the other way. What else could it be, Tad?

Tad: At his age? How much time do you got?

Colby: Ugh.

Tad: No, no, no. Wait, I'm not -- it's not a joke. I mean, signing up to go to New York with you -- that sounds great, but it's a big deal. I mean, that kind of commitment might be freaking him out. It did to me when I was his age, and -- huh -- for about a decade thereafter.

Colby: Great. So instead of "Tad the cad," I get Damon, "the player."

Tad: Why don't you just go talk to him? He's a good kid. He's got a good heart. You know, he might just surprise you.

Colby: Nope. No, no, I get it. He is my boyfriend. I -- am just going to figure it out myself.

Damon: Don't get me wrong. This new thing we have going is way better than you ripping me a new one 24/7, but actually trusting you -- I'm not there yet.

Liza: Well, just for the record, I'm not there yet, either. But I do want you to understand, Damon, I have never been out to hurt you.

Damon: Never?

Liza: No. My sole focus has been protecting my daughter.

Damon: Yeah, from me.

Liza: Yeah, and -- well, from herself.

Damon: Ok, you lost me.

Liza: Listen, my daughter is an incredibly caring and passionate young woman. And after the disaster that was her father and me, I really think the only thing that she really wants is to be safe, to be loved.

Damon: Doesn't everybody want that?

Liza: Yes. But not everyone can provide it. Damon, why are you making Colby think that you can? Come on, here you are -- you're starting a whole new life. Right? Here, with Tad. I mean, you do plan on staying, don't you?

Damon: Yeah, I think so.

Liza: Ok. Give Colby the same chance in New York.

Damon: Look, it's Colby's life, ok? It's not up to me.

Liza: Oh, that is such bull, Damon, and you know it. Come on, you tell her to stay, she's going to stay. Don't. Encourage her to go. And if you do that, I will help you any I can. I'll help you with this adoption, a job, whatever.

[Damon sighs]

Liza: Damon, I am not asking for the impossible here. All I'm asking is for you to be straight with her. And if you do that, you're going to earn a friend.

Damon: Hmm?

Liza: Yeah. Me. Come on, it's got to be a lot better than -- well, how did you so eloquently put it?

Damon: Oh, you ripping me a new one?

Liza: Yeah. That.

Damon: It's just weird. It's just weird.

Liza: What is weird?

Damon: After everything that's gone down between us, and all the crap that you've pulled, I still almost like you.

[Door closes as Colby enters]

Jake: All right. You know, all this talk of Italian, it's making me hungry again. Whoa.

Amanda: We just ate.

Jake: Yeah, I know, but I'm talking about authentic, like the real pasta. Like, maybe we could have that tonight. What do you say?

Amanda: The model in me says absolutely no way.

Jake: Yeah, ok, but how about the civilian in you.

Amanda: I'm drooling.

Jake: Oh, yes! Ok, so that's a good -- that's a yes?

Amanda: Si.

Jake: Si. Excellent. All right, I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll go to Manetti's tonight on the way home, and I will get us a spread, all right? A bottle of red, some linguini carbonara -- how do you feel about mussels? The shellfish variety, not mine.

Amanda: I love them both.

Jake: Really? Ok, then I'll order some. Ok, baby. Oh, I got to get to the hospital.

Amanda: All right. Go, go, go.

Jake: Leave her a little something. Yeah, that's enough. Ok -- oh, remember. Siete bello.

Amanda: What -- you're beautiful, too.

Angie: Honey, you're just too good to me. You know that?

Jesse: What I know is, you are avoiding my question.

Angie: I guess I should know better than that with the chief of police.

Jesse: It's Hayward, right? What's he done now? I will rip him a new --

Angie: You know what? I know it's hard to believe, but everything wrong in the world can't be blamed on David Hayward.

Jesse: Around here, most of it can. Be that as it may, something's going on.

Angie: Baby, it is just the job.

Jesse: What, having to give people bad news, or dealing with things you can't fix or cure?

Angie: Exactly.

Jesse: Yeah.

Angie: Exactly.

Jesse: I forget sometimes how rough it can be for you.

Angie: You think you have enough in your life to deal with. And then something hits close to home. And all I want to do is find you and just bury myself in your arms.

Jesse: Hey, bury away. Come here.

Angie: Oh, baby, do you have any idea what strength you give me?

Jesse: Are you sure it's just the job that's weighing on you?

Angie: Isn't that enough?

Jesse: I don't know. This whole pregnancy thing -- you thinking about that a little bit?

Angie: Why? Have you?

Jesse: A little.

Angie: I mean, it was a moment that took us by surprise, but it came and went. Listen, I'm glad you stopped by, honey, really. And you know, I would love to have lunch --

Jesse: But you can't.

Angie: Listen, rain check. Dinner tonight, ok?

Jesse: I'm there.

Jake: Out of all the chiefs of staff, you are my favorite. And I've had a lot. And you're lucky, because I could have picked David, but he stinks.

Angie: Shouldn't you be on rounds?

Jake: Oh, I switched with Henderson. Someone's got to give you a ride to the doctor.

Angie: Oh. Thank you, but I don't need an escort.

Jake: Really?

Angie: I'm more than prepared.

Jake: Hmm.

Angie: I can do this on my own.

Jake: Right, but why should you have to?

Colby: I was hoping you'd still be here.

Damon: I live here.

Colby: Right. I wanted to talk to you about some stuff. I want to talk to you about New York and some other stuff.

Damon: Yeah, we should do that. Yeah, but later, ok?

Colby: Ok. But why not now?

Damon: I just -- I have to be somewhere.

Colby: Where are you going?

Damon: Out. It's no big deal. I'll call you later, I promise, ok?

[Door opens and closes]

Colby: I am not crazy, right? You just saw that. He couldn't get away from me fast enough.

Liza: Honey, it might not have anything to do with you.

Colby: Well, then what does it have to do with then?

Liza: I don't know -- maybe he's just busy.

Colby: Yeah. Or maybe he wants to break up with me and doesn't have the guts to do it.

Tad: There's absolutely no sign of your plane mechanic. After what Hayward pulled with the nurse in the bar in Pennsylvania a while back, it proves to me this guy, King, is on his payroll. You got any more doughnuts?

Jesse: That's not the proof I need, Tad.

Tad: [Imitating Jesse] Well, patience, baby.

[Jesse sighs]

Tad: We'll nail him.

Jesse: How many times have we said that? Hundreds? Thousands?

Tad: [Normal voice] So what? It just means the odds are in our favor.

Jesse: Right.

Tad: Look, kid, you want to vivisect Hayward. Nobody understands better than I do. There's no point in doing it if you're going to have a coronary. I mean, Hayward's not worth it.

Jesse: Yeah, well, I would buy that if it was just him and me. The man's going after my family, Tad.

Tad: Angie again?

Jesse: And Frankie now. And there's no way I'm going to stand by and watch that happen.

Angie: I wish I had never told you about my condition.

Jake: You didn't tell me about it. I found out by myself. You know why? Because I'm smart. Yeah. Hey, look, I'm glad to back off as soon as you tell your husband.

Angie: No. If Jesse knew that -- if Jesse knew that David was the reason for my infection -- I'm not telling him.

Jake: No problem. Then you're stuck with me, ok? You know why? Because you need support. And what's this? You can't be driving when you have this condition. You want me to follow you all over town with my hazards on? I'll do it.

Angie: All right. All right, fine!

Jake: Ok, fine.

Angie: Fine. Ok.

Jake: Going to need this, too.

Angie: What? What is this?

Jake: It's just some questions you're going to have to broach the specialist with. I did some research last night. Oh, and -- and you're going to need these.

Angie: Breath mints?

Jake: Yeah. Well, they're not for you, they're for the doctor. You know how doctors are. They get all up in your grill. No. Who knows? Maybe he had garlic for breakfast. I don't know.

Angie: [Smiles] Thank you.

Jake: Right. You ready to do this? Wait, that's not a question you can really answer. Let's do this.

[Keys jingle]

Jake: I got that. Come on, after you. Come on, let's go. [Sighs]

Colby: Everything was going great with Damon, and then -- what were you guys talking about before I got here, anyway?

Liza: Oh. The adoption. Honey, I had some stuff that I wanted him to look over. But I -- I just think that he's just got a lot going on right now. I mean, he's letting go of an old life, he's starting a new one.

Colby: Ok, I get that, but -- why can't he talk to me about it?

Liza: I don't know, honey. I think maybe he just needs some time.

Colby: Time for what?

Liza: Get his life together. I -- I really don't know, but I think this is a wonderful opportunity for you to think about you now. Think about yourself for a change. You know, this -- this internship, honey, is so important.

Colby: It's not more important than Damon.

Liza: Honey, I know that you feel like this relationship is the most crucial thing right now, but --

Colby: That's because it is.

Liza: Oh.

Colby: Mom, when are you going to get that?

Liza: I do, honey. I really do.

Colby: I love him, Mom. I --

Liza: I know. I know. But he's obviously having some issues. So what are you going to do? You going to put your whole life on pause? Honey, don't let him hold you back.

Colby: I have to go.

Jesse: Hayward is doing everything he can to make life miserable for Angela. He's slashing hours and supplies. How the hell is she supposed to run a hospital like that?

Tad: If I know Angie, she's holding her own just fine.

Jesse: Yeah, she's doing the best she can, but there are only so many hours in a day, and she is spending every single one of them at the hospital.

Tad: So you think that's his game plan? That Hayward wants to bully her out of a job?

Jesse: Well, that'll never happen. Angela's worked way too hard to get where she is. I'm not about to let him take that away from her.

Tad: Yeah, well, I know how you feel. Jake's probably on the firing line, too. So we've established Hayward's game plan. What's yours?

Jesse: Take him down -- for good. And on charges that he cannot squirm out of. He took that plane down, Tad.

Tad: All right, you don't have to convince me. But there is one problem. I mean, David's a lot of things, a whole lot of things, but he's not stupid. Nailing him isn't going to be easy.

Jesse: Nothing worth it in life is, Tad.

Tad: What is it? Don't give me that. Look like you got a headache. I've known you for a lot of years, kiddo. I understand this thing with Hayward is eating you alive, but there's definitely something else going on. What is it?

Jesse: It's -- I can't stop thinking about that baby.

Tad: You mean the one that might have been, but wasn't.

Jesse: Yeah. I know it came out of nowhere, but it was definitely something we weren't prepared for.

Tad: And it changed things with Angie?

Jesse: Well, I can't help thinking that this could have been a second chance. Having this child with Angela, it could have made up for time I lost with Frankie.

Tad: Hey, have you discussed this with your wife?

Jesse: There's no time with David breathing down her neck. Hospital is all she thinks about. She eats, breathes, sleeps it. I tell you, man, I am so over this man. You have no idea.

Tad: Oh, but I do. Which is why I intend to be with you on this every step of the way.

Amanda: Of all the waiting rooms in all the world --

Jake: You had to walk into mine.

Amanda: Hi!

Jake: Hi, babe. What's cooking? What are you doing here?

Amanda: Hi. I'm -- I'm here to pick up headshots.

Jake: Really? From an ophthalmologist's office?

Amanda: Well, the photographer's place is next door. I saw you. What -- what's your excuse, Mr. 20/20?

Jake: Yeah. 20/10, actually, but who's bragging? I am. What a butt. I'm -- I'm doing a consultation. Sort of a house call.

Amanda: Oh. Well, great. I'll hang out and wait till you're done. Maybe we can get a coffee after.

Jake: Hmm, I would love that, except it's probably going to take a while.

Amanda: Oh. All right. Well, I'll hang out until they're ready for you.

Jake: I -- I would love that. The only thing is, the nurse was just out here a millisecond ago asking for me, already to come in. I'm just slow-poking. She was, like, Helga-looking thing, like a wrestler, and I think I should listen to her. Otherwise, she'll crush me.

Amanda: All right.

Jake: All right. So -- and you have your head shots, so --

Amanda: All right, all right. So I'll see you tonight?

Jake: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, of course. You, me, and a bowl of pasta.

Amanda: Ooh!

Jake: It's going to be fab.

Amanda: All right, I love you.

Jake: I love you, too.

Amanda: Bye, babe.

Angie: It looks like my diagnosis was spot on. Fungal endophthalmitis. I told the doctor I would have preferred it if I had been wrong.

Jake: Well, what did he say about the symptoms abating themselves for the last few days?

Angie: Oh, he said it probably doesn't mean that much. But he gave me an experimental medication to try.

Jake: Well, that's something, right?

Angie: Yeah. I mean, whether it works or not, only time will tell. Jake, I could lose my sight.

Jake: Why don't I just drive you home right now, ok? Call your husband from the car.

Angie: Oh, no.

Jake: What do you mean, no?

Angie: I'm -- I'm not going home.

Jake: Well, where are you going?

Angie: I'm going back to the hospital.

Jake: Oh, no, no, no, Angie.

Angie: No, I've got work that I have to do. And for all we know, not a whole lot of time to do it in. Thank you.

Tad: Paul?

Paul: I've had a couple of days off. I thought I'd pass through. Some of Damon's things.

Tad: Well, by all means, come on in. So, I guess this is where you should ask me how your son is doing, huh?

Paul: He's not my son anymore.

Damon: Colby -- what are you doing here?

Paul: Polite as ever, I see.

Damon: That is not even close to an answer.

Tad: He just stopped by to drop off some of your stuff.

Damon: Mm-hmm. And drop-kick me to the curb. [Scoffs]

Brot: Hey, Chief, you got a second?

Jesse: Not really.

Brot: It's about that guy we hauled in, the drunk and disorderly?

Jesse: Brot, if this doesn't have anything to do with the plane crash, I don't want to hear it, ok?

Brot: Ok. I'll figure something out.

Jesse: Good. Go figure. Is there something else?

Brot: No, um, you know, just too many of those will do a number on your stomach.

Jesse: Oh, so you're a doctor now?

Brot: No, I'm -- I'm just saying --

Jesse: Get back to work. [Sighs] Yeah, I would like to book a ticket.

Jake: You know -- you can't really just go back to business as usual.

Angie: Why not?

Jake: Well, because we just came from the specialist who said it's possible you could lose your sight. You said it.

Angie: I can handle this, Jake.

Jake: Well, with all due respect, I don't know if that's true. Remember the other day, you needed some help with that patient? What if you were trying to save a life right then? I just think it's a good idea that maybe you take a leave of absence.

Angie: And let David destroy what's left of this hospital? I can't do it. I won't do it. The first sign of weakness is all it'll take. David is trying to pick us apart so that he can replace us with his own people, people who don't give a damn about anything except kissing David's ass! Now, if I retreat now --

Jake: Ok. All right, all right. This is not warfare, ok?

Angie: That's exactly what it is.

Jake: Well, then you don't have to fight it by yourself. I'm right here, ok? And Frankie.

Angie: Not for long. Not if David has anything to say about it. Jake, if it weren't for his staff cuts, his supply cuts, I wouldn't even be fighting this damn infection right now! Now, I am not going to lose my sight in this hospital, too.

Damon: What, I'm wrong? Come on in then. Have a seat. Been a while since we caught up. Cool. Come on. That's what I thought. See, he's not here to drop off stuff or check in on me, he's here to make sure the adoption went through.

Paul: Hmm.

Damon: Isn't that right, Dad? God forbid, you and Mom have to deal with me for one more second. Not that you ever really dealt with me, anyway.

Paul: If you're asking if your mother and I have a problem with this -- situation --

Damon: Translation -- dumping me on this guy's doorstep.

Paul: The answer is no.

Damon: Shocker.

Tad: Well, maybe I should let you guys discuss this on your own. Unless, of course, you want me to stick around.

Damon: It's cool. I'm good. Man, it's just a -- it's a dream come true for you, isn't it? Me officially out of your life.

Paul: You have no idea.

Damon: Neither do you. Because I don't need you anymore. I have something I've never had for my entire life. A father. [Chuckles] A real father. So what did you do when you found out I wasn't your kid? Did you throw a rager? No, no, no, let me guess. You and Mom planned another trip around the world, huh? Come on, you must have done something to celebrate the kick-ass moment.

Paul: You think this is a surprise? I've known all along, Damon.

Damon: What, Mom told you?

Paul: She didn't have to. No son of mine would ever behave the way you did. Lie after lie. Screw-up after screw-up. I could tell something wasn't right.

Damon: That's funny, 'cause that's exactly the way I felt about you.

Paul: Ah.

Liza: What are you doing out here? Is Colby inside?

Tad: No. No, Paul Miller decided to grace us with his presence. He's in there with Damon right now.

Liza: Oh. Well, I don't hear any furniture being thrown. I guess that's good news.

Tad: Give 'em a minute. They just started. On the upside, it looks like the adoption won't be any problem at all, because neither Miller nor Hillary has any intention of contesting.

Liza: Oh. Well, Tad, that's great. It's great.

Tad: You have no idea. You know why? Because to the kid in there, this isn't just a formality. A rubber stamp on a piece of paper. This is the day that changed everything.

Liza: For the better, I hope.

Tad: Well, that's the plan. You going to say it, or not?

Liza: Say what?

Tad: Whatever it is you're dying to say. Your nose is doing that thing --

Liza: No.

Tad: You look like rabbit.

Liza: Stop.

Tad: Well, you do.

Liza: Ok, I can't get anything past you.

Tad: A lot of years, kitten.

Liza: I just -- I just don't want you to expect too much, you know? Get disappointed.

Tad: You really believe he's destined to disappoint me, don't you?

Liza: I just think it's a possibility.

[Tad sighs]

Liza: All right, I'm going to go get these adoption papers going, huh? Would you let Colby know that I'm looking for her?

Tad: All right, will do.

Liza: I just hope you get everything that you want.

Tad: So do I. So do I.

Paul: Hey, if everything's working out for the best --

Damon: "If"?

Paul: Then what are you do damn angry about?

Damon: I don't know! Maybe the fact that you made me feel like crap for the past two decades!

Paul: Did you ever think that maybe you deserved it?

Tad: Don't talk to him like that.

Damon: Would you just do me a huge favor, please --

Tad: Damon, that's enough. That's enough!

Damon: And forget you ever knew me?

Paul: Fine. My pleasure.

Tad: What the hell's wrong with you?

Paul: Me? That kid --

Tad: No, not that kid, all right? Not that kid, my kid.

Paul: Whoever he is, he's a lost cause!

Tad: The only lost cause in this room is you. Get out of my house. Now.

Jake: There's just no talking to you, is there?

Angie: No. Either you're with me or against me.

Jake: Well, obviously, I'm with you.

Angie: So does that mean that you're going to keep quiet?

Jake: [Sighs] If we do this, we do this on my terms, you understand? No seeing patients alone.

Angie: Of course not. I would never put a patient at risk. Look, I will focus on my administrative workload for the most part.

Jake: Well, "for the most part" -- so, what, you still want to take cases? Is that what you're saying?

Angie: Well, some.

Jake: [Sighs] Well, not without me there to shadow you.

Angie: Fine.

Jake: Fine. Then I will do whatever I can to make sure that David doesn't find out.

Angie: Thank you.

Jake: Fine. You're welcome. And if this continues -- if this continues to deteriorate, you're going to be honest with me. Ok? You're going to tell me. And you're going to tell your husband.

Angie: Listen, I -- I don't want to upset him. Until I know if the drugs are working. Because when Jesse finds out that David is partly to blame --

Jake: You're going to tell your husband. Or I'm going to tell your husband.

Angie: Ok.

Jake: Ok. All right. And -- and this is important. This is the most important part.

Angie: Oh, God. What else?

Jake: No, don't -- it's not funny. I'm going to help --

Angie: I'm not laughing!

Jake: I'm going to help you see, right? So if I ever hear you call me "Fido" or "Buster" or any other names that go along with seeing eye dog, I swear, I am going to quit.

[Angie laughs]

Jake: That is non-negosh. Non-negosh. Put it there.

Angie: What is that? Get out. Get -- come here. [Chuckles and hugs Jake] Oh, Jake -- baby, I don't know how I'm going to get through this without you. I really don't.

Jake: Well, I'm not going to let you find out.

Angie: I love you.

Damon: Can I come in?

Colby: What's up?

Damon: I want to apologize for what happened back at Tad's. If it seemed like I was blowing you off --

Colby: Weren't you? 

Damon: [Sighs] No, but -- if I made you feel like crap -- I was just reminded of how much that sucks, and I'm sorry.

Colby: Ok. Is this the only reason why you came by?

Damon: You said that we should talk about New York, and you're right. I think that you need to go without me.

Colby: Wow. Ok. Rejected, twice in one day -- that is awesome.

Damon: That's not what this is.

Colby: Well, the what is it? We had a plan to go to Manhattan together, and I was going to take that internship.

Damon: I still think you should.

Colby: Alone?

Damon: Yes. Colby, there's way too much going on right now for me to just up and bail.

Colby: Ok, well, I'll just -- I'll stay here then.

Damon: No, you can't do that. This could be the start of something really, really cool for you. You can't just miss out on that because of me.

Colby: You are sounding just like my mom. What is this? Did -- did she get -- did she get to you? Huh. Why can't she just leave us alone?

Damon: Because she cares, that's why. You're lucky.

Colby: Tad cares a lot.

Damon: Yeah, but we are just beginning to figure stuff out. And you -- you need to think about yourself right now, and your big, fancy career as a fashionista, or whatever.

[Liza eavesdrops]

Colby: How can I do that when I am so worried about us?

Damon: That's easy. You stop worrying. Just because you're there, and I'm here doesn't mean that we can't be together. Colby, you're going places. Don't hold back 'cause of me.

Tad: Paul --

Paul: What do you want, Martin?

Tad: Huh. Not much. I just forgot to give you something. [Punches Paul]

Paul: Oh!

Brot: You know, Tad, I'm sorry about this, but the guy is pressing charges.

Tad: He'll get over it. It was so worth it.

Jake: Hey.

Amanda: Hi.

Jake: Can you get away?

Amanda: Right now?

Jake: I just want to take you home.

Amanda: Oh. Well, ok. Well, should we stop at Manetti's first?

Jake: Forget Manetti's. I just want to be with you.

Amanda: Hey, what's going on?

Jake: Nothing, I'm just -- I'm just lucky. You know? It's -- it's you. It's everything about you. The way you walk across a room. The way you play pinky fingers with our son. And I get to see it all. I mean, I get to see it all. [Hug]

Jesse: Oh. Hey, baby, listen. Sorry, I'm going to have to miss dinner.

Angie: Where are you going?

Jesse: West Virginia. This investigation into Erica's plane crash is not moving the way I would like it to.

Angie: Well, I thought you sent Natalia to cover all of that.

Jesse: Yeah. Well, it seems the Feds are not being too helpful, so I'm going to run down there and give them a little nudge.

Angie: What kind of nudge?

Jesse: A friendly nudge, all right? Listen, you going to be ok? I'm only going to be gone a day or two.

Angie: Yeah. Of course, I'll -- I'll be ok. Um, yeah, I can -- I can take care of myself.

Jesse: Yeah -- actually, the person that needs to be taken care of is David Hayward. Thinking about what he's done to you and Frankie, I -- hand to God, the man does one more thing to hurt my family, someone's going to have to take away my gun.

Angie: No guns, Jesse.

Jesse: I just need to lock that man up.

Angie: Well, I want you to do what you need to do, ok? Because you know I'll always have your back. And I know you'll always have mine.
