In the car at night, Nick tells Karen he's not ready to be a father again. She tells him the baby would be hers and he wouldn't have to do anything, except sleep with her. Brian's like, "Who hasn't?!" Nick says he wants to concentrate on getting his own kid back right now. Karen thinks Nick doesn't think she'd be a good mom, but he says that's not true. She says he's comparing her to Lisa, and that she would never steal his child away from him like Lisa did. Except that she's asking him to have a child and not be in its life at all, so she kind of would. She gets all teary and says she just wants one pure, simple relationship in her life about her being her best for someone else. If that means it's with someone who wears a diaper and doesn't speak English, then so be it. Okay, first: that is no reason to have a child, dumbass. And also, how many mother-child relationships do you know of that are simple? The car dies, and Brian says Karen's sincerity killed it. They start walking.
Tripp and Patrick are on the phone again. Did Donald Sutherland sign a contract saying he would only act over the phone for this episode or something? Patrick says Watley's mad, blah, blah, blah because Tripp squeezed him pretty heard. Tripp says he never squeezed anybody ever. Right, Tripp. We're all buying that. Patrick doesn't want to push Watley any further, and tells Tripp to fix this problem himself. Tripp says he rarely asks Patrick for anything (liar!), but this is for the family. He tells him, rather menacingly, to go back to Watley and get it done. Patrick says, "Right, Dad. You've never squeezed anybody." Patrick just needs to cut off that toxic family.
Jeremy comes home to Nola, and tells her their worries are over. She thinks it's unlikely, but he says Simon's so convinced that he told Jeremy all about Nola's checkered past. She says it's a test, and asks how bad the things he said were. Jeremy says they're pretty bad, so she says he'll have to do something pretty bad to her. Duh-duh. And also: Who cares? Nick calls Lisa and says he's in a hotel outside of D.C., and is coming to get Kiki tomorrow. She wonders why Nick came down here and spoiled Kiki's weekend, since they had fun plans to go horseback riding tomorrow. Nick thought Lisa was working. It's all very tedious parental spat stuff. Lisa asks him if he's feeling guilty for being an absentee father all these years, and he's trying to make up for it with this grand gesture. She says Kiki's fine without him, so he shouldn't ruin her weekend trying to prove to himself he's a good father.
