At home, Lily sits silently studying and completely unresponsive. Reggie asks her if she is wants a sandwich. She does not reply. Zach knocks on the door and Reggie goes to answer it. Lily suddenly calls out to him and rushes to talk to him. Reggie is very amazed that she’s spoken since this is the first time in a long time. Reggie shows Zach into the house.

After unexpectedly running into Amanda, Jonathan tells her that he was waiting for his girlfriend. He is now staying at his tree house but realizes it’s going to be torn down soon. He tells Amanda when he heard her coming he thought she might be Lily. Assuming he has nothing to talk to Amanda about, he is ready to leave. Knowing how bummed out Jonathan is and realizing how her mother hurt him, Amanda asks Jonathan to wait. She tells him that she apologizes for her mother and how she enabled her to get away with what she did. He tells her what is done is done and he’s not going to hold any grudge. She tells him it was because of her, that her mother made him suffer and he has good reason to hate her. He tells her he does not hate her. He realizes that hate is unproductive. She then tells him if there is anything she can do for him, to let her know. He first tells her there is nothing she can do. As she gets up to leave, Jonathan asks her to wait and tells her he now knows something she can do to help him.
After hearing David’s revelation about
Babe tells David that she needs to talk to
him privately outside. Inside the room,
Jamie and JR have no clue what is up with David and decide that they are going
to find a way to make him regret barging in there and telling them this. Babe tells David that he needs to stop this
behavior. Doesn’t he have another
daughter’s life to ruin? He has to
accept the fact that she’s back with JR whether he likes it or not and this
won’t change. He tells her this has
nothing to do with JR. It’s all about
Jonathan tells Amanda that maybe he can date her. She asks him if he wants to go to a restaurant or bar. He tells her they can have their date right up in the tree house.
Zach asks Lily why she wants to disappear and how he can help her with that. She tells him she knows he made himself disappear and helped Ryan disappear. He asks her what she is running from. She tells him she does not like her life here. She wants to get away from him and asks him if he can help her. He replies that he can.
Amanda asks Jonathan how high up the tree house is. He gives her the exact figures of measurement and informs her that his girlfriend knows all about measurement. She sounds interested. He asks her if she wants to play chess. She tells him she doesn’t really know how to play chess. He tells her that chess is fun. His girlfriend is really good at it. He also tells her that the rules are that they can agree to disagree. She then does not seem to understand what he is talking about. He tells her that they can still be boyfriend and girlfriend if they disagree on something. Hearing that, she tells him that he has a misunderstanding if he thinks they can be boyfriend and girlfriend. He then asks her what her favorite color is. She responds she guesses that it’s red. Remembering Lily’s association with red, Jonathan then realizes it will never work. Amanda tells Jonathan that she does not understand anything he is saying. Jonathan then concludes that there is no way he can have with her what he had with Lily. He only wants to be with Lily.
Zach asks Lily if there are people who are her friends. She admits that Reggie and Erica and Danielle are her friends. He asks her if they would be upset if she left. She admits that they would probably miss her. Zach then asks her to list all the people she might hurt if she were to leave. She asks Zach why she would have to hurt them. She does not want to do that. He then asks her if she really wants to leave. Does she really believe it would be worth it?
Babe tells her father if he really
Babe returns to the room with JR, Jamie
and Di. She tells JR that she believes
that David is crazy. JR asks David why
he keeps telling them that

saying. They let him go. He tells them they are maniacs and they must
wait until they run into
Zach tells Lily that even if she were to write a letter to the people she’s be leaving, it would not change the fact that she’d hurt them. She then asks him if she should not list the people who would be hurt if she were to stay. She tells him that both she and Jonathan would be hurt. She is almost 18 and wants to be with him but nobody understands that or wants her to be happy. Zach concludes that he cannot help her with Jonathan but he does want her to be happy.
Jonathan tells Amanda she is very pretty. She reminds him of the girls he used to be with but Lily is different. She understands him. She has helped him to get better and now her father, Jack, wants to destroy the tree house and prevent them from ever seeing each other.

Jamie goes into a bar angry and some drunken jerks are antagonizing him and picking a fight with him.
JR returns home with Babe and yells at
Winifred for leaving the toys scattered around.
Babe tells JR that he can’t do this.
When he’s upset, he cannot shut people out. If he’s going to refuse to talk and deal with
what is really going on, then their marriage doesn’t have a chance. JR then tells Babe that she’s right. He should not shut her out. He guesses it is just an old habit. She tells him, in
that case, he must talk to her. He tells
her that it really upset him and opened up old wounds when
