Mimi points out that Belle did not use any birth control and chose to take the risk of getting pregnant by a man that she didnt really love.
Philip questions whether Belle has a problem with Mimi and Shawn getting together. Belle claims it is a bad idea because they are both on the rebound and Philip points out that Belle got together with him on the rebound. Belle claims it is different because Mimi is still in love with Rex and is shocked when Philip blatantly says that Shawn is still in love with her. Philip assures Belle that its okay that Shawn still has feelings because he doesnt blame him and he isnt jealous because he knows that Belle loves him. Philip points out that Belle, while hes sure that she doesnt want Shawn back, seems to not want Shawn to be with anyone else.
Belle claims that while she wants both Mimi and Shawn to be happy, she doesnt think they are meant to be together.
