She said heís funny, and smart, and has integrity. Cristian tells Fish that if he really had integrity, he would tell the truth to Layla.

Kyle tells Roxy that he is through with Oliver. He canít be with someone who is too afraid to be who he really is. Roxy tells Kyle that maybe Oliver isnít giving the Llanview PD credit for being progressive, and that once he is out of the closet it will feel good. He replies that itís never going to happen.

John presents Marty with the CD that he has removed from the jukebox and tells her that she can do what she wishes with it. She says tossing it in the trash will suffice.

David assures him that all of those things are true. Dorian is just upset because he left her and Viki is not herself. Ford asks if that means it was one of her alters. David says she wasnít very nice, so it might have been Jean. David tells Ford that he has another idea, but Ford tells David that he will find another star.
