Steve informs him that Jack said life is too short to put off something this is important. Tripp asks if it's a go then. Steve says he first must find a new maid of honor, but his best man will be Tripp. Tripp argues that Joey could have been his best man if he didn't tell Joey and Stephanie not to come. Steve asks if he's saying he doesn't want to do it. Tripp feels he doesn't deserve it as Steve's known him for five years and all he's done is screw up his life. Steve tells him to stop talking like that. Steve talks about how much Tripp has added to his life and says he and Kayla love him so he's going to be his best man.

Valerie admits it wasn't easy and she had a demanding career but she found a great nanny. Valerie adds that she still felt guilty about the time she spent away from him and worried. Lani feels she did all the right things because Eli couldn't be more wonderful.
Eli agrees that Vivian is trying to act her way out of prison and a sympathetic judge will buy her act so they need to prove now that she is faking it. Kate feels she's an expert on Vivian's vulnerabilities so she wants him to leave Vivian to her. Eli decides he's wasted enough time on Vivian as he wants to get home to his babies that she stole from them.
