JR and Laurie see that Adam and Liza are at the movies where they are.

Trey comes to see David at work and they learn that Reggie, the boy with the knife earlier, needs some help.
Mrs. Schwartz thinks that it is about time that someone kissed Greenlee. Greenlee thinks that Trey crossed the line with kissing her. Why does he do that? He is everywhere that she is and he is always in her way. He is Leoís brother and she finds that scandalous that he would approach her that way. The point is that he had no right to do that, and Greenlee thinks that Trey disrespected her boundaries and Leoís memories. Greenlee says that she isnít interested in Trey and he knows that. He is Trey and that is the reason. She finds him yucky! Trey says that he understands but then he kisses her. That shows that he doesnít understand her at all, or her situation. He tries to be there for her but forget it, it doesnít work out that way. Greenlee thinks that he is doing this out of guilt. Mrs. Schwartz thought that Vanessa was the one that killed Leo, so why should Trey be feeling guilty? Trey might feel guilty because he should have saved Leo and he didnít, Greenlee ponders. Greenlee thinks that she owes him nothing though. If he is feeling bad, then he will have to deal with it. She knows that he is putting the moves on her but that is all going to stop. Then David comes along and defended him. Greenlee thinks that the brothers are trying to bond as brothers. David might feel responsible for Leoís death too. Greenlee thinks that everyone needed Leo too much and that is why he is dead. Greenlee thinks again that David might not be responsible. Greenlee wants the brothers to know that they are nothing like Leo and she wants them to leave her alone. Mrs. Schwartz thinks that they are not stopping their behavior, as Greenlee doesnít want them to.
David is at work thinking that they should send Reggie home. Reggie will not let David near him. There is no one to take care of Reggie now. His mother is not around. Reggie enters the room and Davidís boss suggests that Reggie stay at her house. The other alternative is custody for juveniles. Reggie will not go there. David tries to examine him again but Reggie will not let anyone touch him. Reggie leaves and Trey offers to go after the kid and get him to see things differently.
The teacher explains to Maggieís class what is expected of them. Maggie has to find a partner for the class to do work, but everyone seems to be taken. Everyone that she goes up to already gets someone to work with. The oriental kid is the only one that has no partner and when Maggie notices that, the boy turns and walks out of the class.
Adam is ranting now at the movie. He will not leave until JR sees reason. The movie is over now and the others have left. Adam reminds his son that he isnít Harvard material yet. JR thinks that his father has been fixing things with his checks anyway. Adam wants the boy to be successful and he has to work hard to get that. Adam is trying to give the boy an opportunity that he never had. Adam finds that the boy should be more grateful as his father hasnít been that way in the past. JR knows the whole story. He knows that Adam can do anything that he wants. He is not like his father and he doesnít want to be like him. Adam is the last person that he wants to be like.
Dr. Schwartz thinks that Greenlee likes the attention that she is getting. Greenlee tells the doctor that Vanessa threatened her and not Leo. She needed Greenlee to get to Leo. Vanessa wanted to run away with Leo. Leo wasnít going to do that. Vanessa never meant to kill Leo., She loved him very much. Leo loved Greenlee too, but Vanessa wanted to kill her for that. Leoís life wasnít in danger until he heard Greenleeís voice that day. How did he know to find Greenlee? Greenlee called him and that was why he came that day. Greenlee thinks that Leo came because he wanted to save her. He came and there was no one there to save him. Greenlee sees the truth for the first time. She realizes that she was the one that was to die that night, and not Leo. He saved her life that night. She starts to cry over what she has just realized.

Liza apologizes to Laurie for Adamís outburst. Laurie goes running out, thinking that she would never do a thing like that on purpose. JR tries to follow her but Adam grabs JRís arm telling him that this isnít finished.
Jake tells Mia that he is working really hard to get things together for them. Mia thinks that they should slow down and talk about what they want. Do they want a condo instead? Do they want to live in the country? She might have ideas on what she wants to do. He tells her that she can stay home and he can work. He gets upset with her over her stalling techniques. He leaves seeing that she isnít on the same page as he right now.

Reggie is still hurt and bleeding. Reggie is sure that he is fine. Trey tells Reggie that he needs to get the wound checked out. Reggie sits instead of walking. Trey lays it out for Reggie. The smart thing would be for Reggie to come with Trey. Trey used to be the same way as this kid. Reggie finds that hard to believe. Trey knows the kid and has been in his shoes many times.
Greenlee knows that she has been blaming Vanessa for everything that has happened. She even blamed Leo but she is the one that should have been hit first. She shouldnít have made the phone call. Leo was her husband and he shouldnít have been there. Greenlee knows now that she should have died that day. Dr. Schwartz wonders why she thinks that her life shouldnít be spared as it has been. Greenlee says that Leo was different and he knew how to live. She has done nothing and she only takes up space. She should be dead. Dr. Schwartz thinks that there is only one thing more that Greenlee needs to do if she really thinks that she should be dead.
Maggie greets her new lab partner and she gives him her phone number. The boy wants to work alone. He refuses to take her number and tries to leave. Maggie stops him and makes him take her number. He tells her that he will call her.
Trey got bounced around too in his lifetime. Reggie isnít impressed with Trey and isnít afraid of him. Trey knows that the boy isnít going to listen him but he is going to make him see Janelle. If she tells him that he is to see the doctor, then he will see the doctor and Trey isnít going to take no for an answer.
Dr. Schwartz opens the window and gets a chair telling Greenlee to get up on it. Greenlee tries to protest but the doctor doesnít care. She pushes Greenlee up there and suddenly Greenlee is feeling stupid. Greenlee said that she should be dead. The doctor tells her to go ahead and jump.
Laurie is at the boathouse and she remembers the hurtful words that Adam said to her about getting pregnant. She hears a voice and Jamie shows up. He knows that she is feeling hurt. He is looking for Jonie but she isnít there. Jamie wants to know what happened after he left. There was more yelling apparently. Adam is a jerk and does stuff like this all the time.

Real fear comes to her face. The doctor announces that time is up and she gets her coat and leaves Greenlee standing in confusion at the window.
