Leo wants to know why Dr. McMillan called Greenlee "Mrs. DuPres". She lies that she went to him when they were engaged, and she used that name because she knew she would be married to him soon. He is surprised that she went to therapy. He apologizes for calling her "crazy" before; he thinks she thought in her head that she was married to him. She gets incensed at his patronizing attitude.
