Upstairs, in the Fusion office, alone, Josh is attempting to clean out his desk and straighten up some things.† He seems unable to concentrate, as he continues to stare at a picture of Babe.
Krystal tells Sydney that she believes the reason for Colbyís behaviors and her inability to share is because she is insecure.† Sydney tells Krystal that she does not understand why she would say that.† Colby has everything she could ever dream of.† She has an adoring family and all the money and attention she could ever want.† Krystal tells Sydney that up until very recently, Colby did not have any of this.†
Jamie asks Di why Dixie is so angry and untrusting of Tad.† She tells him itís because his father made up some horrible accusations about her sister.† He asks her how she knows that Tad is lying.† She tells him that her sister is not a murderer.† What she does know is that after all that both she and Dixie have put his father through, Tad is a thoroughly messed up guy.

Colby overhears JR and Krystal arguing.† He tells her that he does not need any woman.† All he needs is to find Colby.† She asks him what is wrong with a man needing a woman.† He asks her what kinds of magazines and psychology she and Babe have been filling their heads with.† He tells her even if he did have needs, he knows that needs are pointless.† Itís just one big waste of time.
Babe is at the bar waiting for JR.† She cannot find him, and she has somebody else on the brain.
