Eric apologizes for bothering Daniel about this again. Daniel says he wants to find out what happened to him as much as he does. Eric says Daniel has a lot on his plate and asks how things went with Jennifer. Daniel says in a way they went well as getting Parker's birth certificate let him know what they both need.
