Liza is at her office putting files in boxes when Tad walks in. Liza tells him there's some big changes around here. Tad asks if Adam fired her. Liza says no, she quit. She tells him she and Adam are divorcing. "Again?" Tad questions, adding "third times the charm." Tad tells her he thought she would never break free of Adam. Liza tells him that Adam has been fair in working out a custody agreement. She says she plans to work at Fusion. Tad says she's making it sound so easy, but she says it's far from easy. She says it's not easy to break up her daughter's family. Tad asks her if their kiss contributed to the break up. Jamie, who has just entered the room, says no, he did. Tad asks Jamie why he blames himself for the failure of Adam and Liza's marriage. After Liza excuses herself, Jamie tells Tad that Adam got on him and he hinted about Liza's kiss with Tad. Tad tells him that didn't break up the marriage, but it did get him a punch in the chops. Tad does tell Jamie, though, that he needs a little more discretion. That upsets Jamie, who tells his father that he's a fake. He says he needs to set an example for himself. Later alone in her office, Liza is visited by Doug Lewis, who asks if he can have his job back at Chandler Enterprises. Liza tells him she knows he didn't lose his job because of downsizing. Doug admits he was fired. He had just lost his wife and he was stupid. Doug says he needs the job back so he can take care of Laurie. Liza says she'll talk to Adam and she gives him the name of Lysistrada. When Doug says he and therapists don't get along, Liza says Adam was the same way, and he and Adam are a lot alike. Later, when Tad returns to Liza's office, he asks if Adam will rehire Doug Lewis. She says it will be a challenge. Tad asks her if she would give him a second chance. Everyone needs a second chance, he says. Liza asks him if he's trying to ask her for a second chance. Liza says she is sorry Tad is lonely but that wouldn't be a good idea. Tad says she's probably right. Liza tells him she was wrong when she says that when she kissed him, it could have been anyone. It had to be him. She says he was there when she needed him. She tells him she loves him and they take each other's hand.
