Gwen thanks Will for the offer but thinks he would be wasting his money because she cant think of anything else but the case. Will assures Gwen that the law is on her side because she is the babys mother--that is what Cass Winthrop told her. Gwen tells Will that Cass will say anything as long as she pays him money.
