Jake says that the more specific Amanda is, the more likely she is to find a perfect match.
Tad says that J.R. canít afford to make mistakes, and J.R. says that he doesnít care because the judge is wrong. J.R. says that the longer this stretches out, the more Little Adam suffers.

Pete says that he wants to give the baby his name. Jake says that he will run the offer by Amanda.
Amanda offers to testify for J.R. and tell the court what an amazing father he is because she knows first-hand. J.R. thanks Amanda for the offer but says that he will have to pass because he wouldnít even be going through this if it wasnít for her doing Davidís dirty work. Amanda apologizes. J.R. says that Amanda makes him sick. Tad comes back and asks where J.R. went. Amanda says that J.R. went somewhere that he doesnít have to see her. Amanda says that she made a mistake, but she did care about JR and she still does. Tad says that JR isnít in a place where he can feel that right now. Tad says that not knowing where your child is or who they are with is hell on earth and that at least Amanda will never have to go through something like that.

Jesse tells Little Adam that no matter what, he and J.R. are connected by walkie-talkieís in their hearts. Angie suggests that she and Little Adam go back and play with the blocks. J.R. knocks on the door and asks Jesse to give Little Adamís foster family some things that help him fall asleep.

Zach and Ryan go all in, and Zach tells the dealer to hold on a second.
Jake says that Pete thought they were talking about a profile for an internet-dating thing. Amanda asks if Pete actually knows about the adoption and Jake says no but they have to be careful because it was a close call.
