At a benefit dinner for LSP, Jake meets a "model" woman who recently got custody of her son. They happened to have gone to the same local high school, and there is a mutual interest. Since Jake is spending time with her, he begins to question if she is really a fit mother. After Burton is rebuffed, he rethinks his relationship with Mary, and Nick witnesses her true side. Brian files a suit against the hospital for wrongful termination. Nick represents a transvestite man whose partner is now deceased, and is trying to keep custody of the young boy he's been raising as his own for several years now. Lulu bid on some law books of Burton's, but the box which is delivered is more of a personal nature, and she begins to see how Nick was raised.
