Ryan goes to Liza and asks her for a big favor. He tells her that he needs one hundred thousand dollars and a guaranty on nine hundred thousand to bail Kendall out. He believes in her and wouldn't normally bother Liza, but he's desperate. Liza tells him yes and tells Mia to go to the bank and arrange for a cashier's check. Mia says no. Liza can't believe that Mia said no. Mia backpedals and tries to discuss the fact that Liza may need that money soon. Liza tells Ryan that he'll have the money and he leaves.
