He tells her that he remembers Justus mother with him and Laura. They had family gatherings and decorated Christmas trees. Hearing that, she tells him she could not picture him doing that. He tells her that they did. He noticed that Laura loved all her friends and neighbors and wanted nothing more than to be with her family. But not him. He had to travel and be out there. He tried. He really wanted to make it work between them because he loved her. But he could not because it was a lie. He then tells Tracy he is sorry. She asks for what. He says for bearing his soul.

He protests to her that he donated his liver to his father. She tells him that the only reason she is with him is because a part of her wants to believe that he is a quality person. Hearing that, he tells her he wishes she would stop this little diversion and admit the real reason why she is mad at him. He tells her he knows its because she saw him with Carly. She tells him she refuses to talk about that. She turns to leave. He asks her why she is not trying to have the last word. He reminds her that she is slipping.
