Leo tells David that he will not have their mother committed. So what she's acting a little crazy, that doesn't mean she's ready to be hauled off by men in white coats. Greenlee disagrees with Leo, saying his mother needs help. Leo tells her it's none of her business. Greenlee says of course it is her business ? she is going to be his wife. Leo tells her maybe they should rethink that. Greenlee tells Leo he doesn't mean that. Leo continues to defend Vanessa and he and Greenlee continue to argue about it. David sticks up for Greenlee. Leo tells David he just wants payback for Vanessa's role in his father's suicide. The three of them continue to bicker about Vanessa, with David and Greenlee opposing Leo. Greenlee calls Vanessa a brilliant actress with an agenda. Leo says she is no expert on parents, considering the way her own parents treated her. Greenlee asks Leo why he is trying to hurt her. She threatens to leave. Leo tells her to go ahead and leave ? go run to Jake. Leo tells her he doesn't need her. Greenlee says he has no need for her when he has his mother. She runs out. Leo looks at David, telling him he doesn't need a big brother. David says yes, he does need him. David tells Leo that he feels the two of them have bonded and he doesn't want to lose that. He says he doesn't want them to become enemies over Vanessa. He urges Leo to approve of Vanessa having a full psychiatric examination. Leo says he'll think about it. David leaves and someone knocks at the door. It is Vanessa. He tells her she just missed David. She says she saw him leave but he didn't see her. Leo says that's a good thing, because he probably would have thrown a net over her head and taken her to the loony bin. Leo tells his mother that David wants her committed. Vanessa says that is absurd. Leo tells her that he defended her, but he is not sure why because he thinks she just might be crazy. Leo tells Vanessa her behavior has been bizarre lately. Vanessa says it's not as bizarre of him and David accusing her of murdering Larry. She says she doesn't know where Larry is but she suspects he'll pop up somewhere.
