(Hughes House) Tom calls Emily and accuses her of being unethical for describing Chris as a pompous, arrogant, hospital big wig. Emily tells Tom that she couldn’t think of any other way to describe a guy who gets a woman kicked out of the nursing program because she wouldn’t sleep with him. Tom tells Emily that he will get a gag order to stop her from publishing stories that are not true. Emily tells Tom to get his gag order but in the meantime he can gag on this and then she angrily slams down the phone. Tom is frustrated and Casey walks in and Tom tells him he was talking to the most unethical, unscrupulous, newspaper editor and Casey smiles because he knows Tom is talking about Emily.

(Emily’s office) Emily tells her staff to deliver complimentary copies of the intruder to the Lakeview, Java, Al’s Diner, and the hospital because she wants all of Oakdale to know that Chris Hughes is a jerk and deserves to pay for what he did to Alison.

(Hughes House) Casey tells Tom that Emily’s stories usually have some facts behind them. Tom thinks that Casey is taking Alison’s side over his own uncle and wonders how Casey can be against his own family. Casey clarifies that he doesn’t think Chris intended to hurt Alison but she must have a case or the lawsuit wouldn’t be going to court. Tom tells Casey that this case could hurt Alison if it goes to court. Casey laughs because it seems like Tom is going after Alison like a hit man goes after his prey. Chris arrives to practice his testimony with Tom and Casey leaves the house so they can be alone to work. Chris tells Tom he got a copy of the paper but he didn’t read it because he doesn’t read trash. Chris tells Tom that not too many people read the intruder so the article won’t make a difference in the trial. Tom tells Chris that more people read the tabloids then he might think and Emily has managed to put Alison’s case in the court of public opinion. Tom goes over some of the questions Bonnie is likely to ask him and Chris is doing pretty well in his responses until Tom asks him if he persuaded Brenda the director of the nursing program to give Alison a make up exam because of his friendship with Alison. Chris responds yes but Tom corrects him and explains that he must make sure to make it clear to the jury that Brenda made all the decisions regarding Alison and he never used any influence with Brenda. Tom asks Chris a question about his past relationship with Alison and brings up that he cheated on Alison with Emily. Chris gets angry and Tom warns him not to get so angry at the mention of Emily’s name or he will lose the case.

Casey tells Emily that his father is a good man and would never fight dirty to win a case. Emily asks Casey to find out what Tom plans to use against Alison. Casey asks Emily if their relationship would end if he decided not to spy on his father for her. Emily tells Casey that there are so many reasons she shouldn’t be with him and should put an end to their relationship. Emily tells Casey that whatever he decides to do it won’t affect their relationship. Casey tells Emily he is going to do this to prove to her that his father is a good man.

(Hughes House) Chris asks Tom if he thinks that he should fight the lawsuit Tom says yes but the question is if he wants to fight clean or dirty. Tom tells Chris that most likely this will become a case of he said she said unless either side can come up with evidence that places the character of the other person in doubt. Tom asks Chris if he wants to use Alison’s porn past against her. Chris tells Tom that if this comes out in court it would destroy Alison. Tom agrees to use the porn movie as a last resort but he won’t do it if Chris doesn’t want him to use it. Chris tells Tom to use the porn movie as a last resort in the case.

Casey calls Alison and tells her to meet him in Emily’s office.

(Emily’s office) Emily, Alison, and Aaron talk and Casey tells them that Tom intends to use the porn movie in court. Alison cries a little Casey leaves to go get her something to drink. Alison considers dropping the lawsuit but Emily tells her that when she was a hooker a john beat her up and she didn’t report it because she thought that nobody would believe her. Emily tells Alison that she was afraid that a jury would think she deserved it because the guy had paid to be with her. Alison tells Emily that she didn’t deserve to get beat up and Emily asks Alison if she deserved the treatment Chris gave her. Alison leaves because she needs to think and Emily tells Casey she hopes Alison doesn’t drop the lawsuit.
