She says that he thinks he's Jason, and not Kiki's father. Kiki asks if she thinks he' being legit, because everyone thinks he's lying.

Back at Kelly's, Laura asks her mother, "What can you do?" "Well, my darling, you may not remember, but I used to be a big deal at GH." Laura nods her head and says, " Oh yes, I vaguely recall that you were one of the most the brilliant doctors there." They both say it caustically. Lesley says that she will get Laura what she needs. She tells her that she's doing it for Laura, the same way Laura is doing it for Lulu. She then puts in a good word for Scotty, even though she's never been his biggest fan.

The intern tells her that he sang her praises on their intro tour. She wasn't aware that Lesley was working at the hospital. Lesley tells her that she's consulting on a very important case. The intern hands the computer over to her, then Lesley pretends to have forgotten her temporary password. The unsuspecting intern tells her that she's still logged in, so Lesley can use hers.
