Asa soon joins Nigel in his eavesdropping on Hank and Rae. First they hear moaning, which is Hank grunting while trying to open the door. Rae suggests that being stuck for hours may not be such a bad thing. She offers some wine, relaxation, and conversation and he’s more than happy to take her up on the offer. He admits that he’s disappointed about the marriage, that he held back his feelings because John Sikes was a good friend of his, and that if he hadn’t then they may be together now. They come toward each other about to kiss, and Hank pulls back because of Rae’s marriage. They argue over who tried to kiss who and when Hank accuses her of not being willing to take responsibility for her actions, she starts throwing wine bottles at him. Asa finally opens the door, in an effort to save his precious, expensive wine bottles. Rae tells Hank she never wants to see him again and he expresses that the feeling is mutual.
Sam brings papers over for Blair to sign, pertaining to The Sun, and when she realizes that he’s upset, he confides in her his feelings about Jen’s pregnancy. Blair defends Sam with enthusiasm when he states that he’s a lousy father and that Jen wouldn’t be in this predicament if he had been there for her full-time. Blair asks Sam to leave because it's late and she’s tired, but he suspects that the real reason is that she feels the attraction as much as he does and is running away from it. At first she tells him he’s wrong. Then she suggests that this may all be because they’re both on the rebound, and she doesn’t want to risk their friendship. After he squashes the theory by noting that their friendship is strong enough to make it over any hurdle, and that the last time they made an attempt at a relationship they remained friends afterward, she admits the real reason. She believes that he is too good for her and that she can’t be with a man as good as he is. His new goal in life, as he states before he leaves, is to prove her wrong.
