George tells Lulu that whatever she decides to do with this must be her own decision. Lulu admits she does not have a clue what to do..

Hearing that, Dillon asks his mother whom she is and what she did with Tracy Quartermaine. She tells him if he does not want to make a legal, binding commitment to Lulu, He does not have to. Overhearing their conversation, Edward comes in and tells them that of course, Dillon will marry the girl. Tracy reminds her father that she is having a private conversation with her son. He tells her she has the morals of a shark from the discovery channel. They eat their young. She protests to her father that he only wants this to be a legal business endeavor and has no consideration for her son. Dillon then asks them both to shut up and stop trying to control his life. He leaves and Edward tells Tracy that her son is now sounding just like a QUtrtermaine and Tracy better watch out.
Lucky tells Elizabeth that he needs to go and talk to his sister. Lulu needs him. She asks him if maybe she should talk to her instead. Maybe shed be more comfortable talking to a woman. She tells him that she understands his behaviors very well.. She works in the hospital and reads the pamphlets and knows that this is the first step to finding more excuses to take more pills. Lucky goes out the door telling Elizabeth he has to help his sister. And as soon as hes out the door, he gets on his cell phone and looks like hes going to score more drugs.
While attempting to get back to work, Robin and Patrick argue. She looks to him like she is in control. But when she is alone, she breaks down crying.
Emily and Nikolas come to see Elizabeth when Lucky is out. They admit that they all know that Lulu is pregnant. Elizabeth informs them that Edward Quartermiane came and gave his speech and really antagonized Lucky. Nikolas asks her how Lucky can help Lulu when hes going though this drug withdrawal. She tells him that they need to have faith in Lucky. He needs to look into their eyes and know that they trust him Hearing that, Nikolas asks Elizabeth if she does. She does not answer.
Sure enough, Lucky calls Maxie. He tells her that hes really having a bad time with these withdrawal symptoms. He needs just a bit more pills. She has them in her possession but tells him it might be hard to get more and he might have to wait until tomorrow.
Dillon goes in and tells Georgie that his family is judging him and Lulu but it is their fault that he got her pregnant. He informs her about the defective condoms. Hearing that, she sarcastically tells him that its really lame for him to be blaming the condoms for the fact hat he slept with her. He tells her that he wishes he could take back what happened. But he doesnt know what to do now. Hearing that, she asks him why he cannot do what Lulu wants and give her some consideration.
Lulu goes to visit her mother in the hospital. She tells her that this is so messed up. She wishes they could talk this over. She really needs her advice right now. But her mother cannot help her. The truth is, she probably thought that Lulu was an accident as much as her father did. But now she is pregnant. How can she bring a baby into the world whose parents dont want it any more than her parents wanted her?
