Starr peeks in and sees Blair asleep on Todd's shoulder. She is very happy and closes the door quietly. Blair and Todd wake up and look at each other. They almost kiss. Blair pulls away and says she can't. Todd pretends that he didn't want to kiss her. Blair says she knows that he did want to kiss her. They argue loudly. Starr walks in and hears them fighting. She asks them why. She is very upset and confused. They tell her she didn't hear the whole story, they want to be together, but not in the bed. Why not she asks. Todd tells her it is because of the baby. Blair starts to panic thinking Todd is going to tell Starr that the baby is Max's baby. He tells her to just shut up for a minute. He explains to Starr that the reason they don't want to sleep together is because since Blair is pregnant it makes her very uncomfortable, and she needs the whole bed to stretch out in. Starr is a little happier, and leaves to get dressed. Blair and Todd discuss if they think she bought their story. They aren't sure. Blair asks if he was gonna really tell her about the baby being Max's. He says that he thought about it, she asks him why he changed his mind. He says he didn't want to hurt Starr's feelings. They talk about maybe not arguing anymore. Todd agrees to try it. Blair asks that they don't really hate each other do they? Maybe they can get along. She is softening up, so is Todd. They get close again, almost kissing. Then Blair pulls away again. Todd asks what now, Blair says the baby just gave her a very healthy kick. That breaks the mood for Todd.
