Chris understands that people at the hospital have been giving Alison a hard time because of her friendship with him so he suggests they go study at his place. Chris sees the look on Alison’s face and tells her that he is only going to help her study but in order to avoid hospital gossip they need to go some place where nobody will see them together. Alison accepts Chris’s offer and Chris leaves first to go order some brain food for them. Alison leaves a few minutes later but looks unsure that she should have accepted Chris’s offer to help her study for her test.

Chris starts asking Alison questions about the skeletal system of the body and when he gets to a question about the difference between the ribs and he touches Alison’s ribs to show her what he is talking about she jumps and tells Chris this wasn’t a good idea. Chris tells Alison he noticed she has had the same reaction every time he touches her. Alison tells Chris she came here to study not to have sex and she thinks she should leave now. Chris admits to Alison that he wants to make love to her but he did not touch her in a sexual way he only wanted to show her where on the body the two different kinds of ribs are located. Chris thinks Alison might be suffering from some type of posttraumatic stress syndrome and might benefit from seeing a psychologist or Psychiatrist. Chris thinks that if Alison doesn’t get some help with her problem she won’t make it through the nursing program. Alison is very angry because Chris thinks that she is crazy and insists that she can handle her studies just fine without his help adding that she will become a nurse. Chris yells that if that is what she wants she is now on her own. Alison yells at Chris that it is just fine with her and storms out of the room slamming the door behind her.
