Jamie tells JR that he would like to be violent with somebody. But its against the rules because shes a woman. JR tells Jamie that life is too short to drink the cheap booze that Jamie is drinking. Jamie tells JR that its obvious that they are both suffering and the question is; do they keep fighting and hating each other? Or do they try to help each other dig themselves out of their misery?

JR tells Di that all along, the hard sell with her was to be nicer to Jamie and to Babe. And it was all to get Babe access to his kid.

All the positive goals they had in the past. And she says she knows she must get her life back.
Ryan tells Livia if she has reservations about representing Jonathan, he will look elsewhere. She tells him she is not refusing but needs to think. He tells her that he wants her to prove that Jonathan had a tumor and was not responsible for his actions. Livia tells Ryan that it may be easier said than done. She reminds him that many people and their families will never forgive Jonathan for how he has hurt so many people. And she tells him that Jackson and Greenlee are the most obvious examples of that.
Greenlee tells Kendall that she cannot tell Ryan about the baby. Ryan does not want to be a father and even if he did, he cannot be one. But Kendall tells Greenlee she does not know that. And they need to uphold the truth and go inside that hospital room and tell Ryan about the baby. Greenlee tells Kendall she does not plan to speak to Ryan, much less tells him about the baby. But Kendall asks what she plans to do when Ryan notices her belly ballooning out. Greenlee tells Kendall that Ryan will be long gone before that happens.

Brooke asks Bbe why, after having Jamie finding her in another guys bed, would she believe that she cares about Jamies happiness? Babe tells Brooke that she does care about Jamie. But Brooke reminds Babe that Jamie made her the most important thing in his life. She sold out on him. So what Jamie does with his life is none of her business and she must leave him and whomever he chooses to see, alone. But Babe protests that she will not let a slut like Amanda hurt Jamie.
Di tells JR that in time, things might change for him. He tells her that shes going to be stuck in a cellblock throughout the time she plans to wait for him. Jamie also tells her she better leave them both alone. JR tells her that she better not preach to him about alcohol or anything else. She better stay away from him or she will go to prison. Jamie agrees and tells her she needs to stay out of their lives.
Tad tells David that hes going to post some emails and maybe fix David up with somebody. He suggests selling David as: downwardly mobile ex-physician/ slash chemist seeks open minded woman to be sex slave/slash guinea pig. And only the delusional need apply. David tells Tad that he should post one for himself about being a loser who chases after the wrong women. But before he can finish his thought, Tad bangs the drums and hurts Davids eardrums. David tells Tad that that is not a very effective method. Tad tells David that doing things like this is not as miserable for him than admitting he is alive after what happened. David asks Tad if he and Di used to snuggle up together and read womens magazines. Tad tells David he is very bored to have nothing better on his mind than Di. He tells David he supposes that all the waxy yellow buildup David mops up is his highest ambition right now. And Tad reminds David that even the fake Di fell in love with him before David. David leaves.

Greenlee tells Kendall she will tell it the truth, that daddy is gone.
