Casey heads for the roof on his break and finds Mark ready to jump because he thinks people are ordering him to jump. Casey tells Mark to jump if he wants to do it. Alison arrives and persuades Casey to help her calm Mark down despite the fact that Mark tells Alison he is sorry he never had sex with her.
