Leo is trying to break a lock on one of the doors on the boat when Laura walks up behind him. She thinks that she can help. She takes a little wire out and kneels in front of the door. She opens it and Leo is flabbergasted. She has actually come for a job with incredibledreams.com. There is no budget for that. They can't pay her, but if she doesn't mind working for free in an elegant working environment and getting the occasional massage, she can work there. He takes her into his room and gives her a massage on the bed. As he is doing that, Greenlee arrives and sees them together. She isn't happy and knocks on the open door to announce her arrival. She demands that they get off the bed. She doesn't believe that Laura wants a job, she just wants to get with Leo. Leo tells her to beat it. She tells him that he owes her money and she wants it now. He poured a Bloody Mary all over Greenlee at the restaurant and she wants to be compensated for it. Leo ignores her and gets back to Laura offering her the job. She gives him a card made up with her numbers. They agree to work together and she leaves refusing to go for a drink at that exact time. Greenlee tells her to be careful walking off the boat. Greenlee stays on the boat after Leo tells her that he has work to do. He rips up her bill and tells her that she needs to leave. He knows that she just wants his attention and he doesn't give it to her. She demands to get the money and says that she will leave. He can't believe that she wants him to think that $13.50 for dry-cleaning will really get her out of his life. He digs out the change and pays her with his last dime. She didn't think that he was broke and looks sorry taking his money from him. She refuses to take the money because he needs it more than she does. He tells her to take it, but she won't. She admits that she just wanted to see him. She hates him for making her feel that way. She isn't ready to give up on him. She made some mistakes. He doesn't think that almost killing Laura is a mistake. He can't give her unconditional love. She wants him to admit that he thinks of her sometimes. He does think of her like heartburn. He runs off a list of things that she has done. She is jealous all the time. She is petty. He thought that she was going to become a better person. Laura is smart and pretty and so is Greenlee, but she is not kind. She thinks that honesty is over-rated. She tells him that they will never be over. She keeps getting in his face and he wanted her to stop crying for attention. He wants her to go find someone else to stalk. She gets angry and tells him that she never wants to see him again. She reaches for the door handle and it breaks off in her hand. The door is locked and Greenlee freaks out. She stands back and runs to the door thinking that she can break it open. She can't and she ends up hurting her shoulder from banging into it. He tries to massage it to make it feel better and they end up kissing.

Haley is still walking around thinking that she is Arlene. She has gone to the wave and finds videotape that she inserts into the VCR. She is speaking as she inserts the tape; "Your mama is going to teach you a lesson that you will never forget." As she is finished inserting the tape, Mateo's voice is heard, "Haley! Are you hear?" Haley/Arlene turns towards the voice, terrified. He walks onto the set and finds Liza and some crew with her. They are going on live as per Haley's request.

Mateo sees a scarf that Haley is wearing and as Haley looks down at the scarf, she sees that it is Arlene's. They try to figure out a reason for her to be wearing the scarf. Haley doesn't want to worry about it; she takes it off and throws it away. She meets with the guest that is going to appear on the show that day. Liza tells Mateo that the guest has written a book called, &'Living With Guilt'. Liza thinks that this may not be a good idea. She doesn't have a good idea about this show. She may be in need of professional help. The show starts with Dr. Howard Brody. Haley thinks that he is so important that she is dedicating the entire hour to her guest. The guest explains the feeling of guilt and living with guilt. To get rid of guilt, to deal with consequences, etc. The results of not dealing with guilt are huge. Communicating your feelings is important. His advice to a guilty person is to deal with conflicting responsibilities.
