As Eli packs up his office to make way for Taylor taking it over, Taylor asks if Eli wants her to talk to her father. Eli really doesn't; he created this mess and now he has to deal with it. The important thing to Eli is not the office, it's that he's still a lawyer. Eli carries his box out to say goodbye to Patti. Patti, getting all choked up as she brushes off his lapel, remembers how she had his car towed for parking in Jordan's space fifteen minutes after he first arrived at the firm. Eli leaves Patti with the news that he wasn't the one who got Jordan to represent him, Taylor did. Patti considers this but doesn't say anything. As Patti's phone rings, Eli walks off, saying he'll just be down the hall. Tearfully, Patti answers her phone, "Taylor Weathersby's office." People leaving offices is sad. Very sad.
Dr. Chen and Eli share a beer in Chen's office. Chen hopes to buck Eli up by reminding him about a higher power and larger plan to Eli's life, but Eli is definitely done with that prophet crap. Chen reminds Eli that it's understandable for him to be bitter. "I'm not bitter. I'm relieved," Eli corrects him, "Ever since I was diagnosed, I was afraid of becoming like my dad, you know? This pathetic guy who couldn't hold his life together with both hands. Now, here I am!" Chen corrects Eli that Dad Stone may have been sad and lost, but he was never pathetic. "Yeah, well, you didn't know him," Eli scoffs. Au contraire, my brain-clouded friend. Chen reminds Eli about how he couldn't get any acupuncturing work when he first started out. All he had was a dog-eared copy of I, Ching and his CCR records. "CCR?" Eli asks, "As in --" "Creedence Clearwater Revival," Chen and Eli say in unison. "Wanna guess what my favorite song was?" Chen asks. Yep. "Who'll Stop the Rain." Anyway, Chen was out of school and had no work, so he took a job at a TV repair shop because it was all he could get. Chen was grateful for the work and he asked the man who hired him what he could do to repay his kindness. Chen stands up, "And he told me about his son who was away at college at the time." Skeptical understanding dawns on Eli's face. "He told me," Chen goes on, "That I would make good on my debt to him one day." Chen comes back to where Eli is sitting and hands over an old photograph. It's young Chen and Dad Stone in front of Stone Sales and Repairs on 1280 Market Street. Eli wonders, "What are you telling me?" Chen shrugs, "I didn't know what your Dad meant -- how I could help you -- but three months ago, you walked into my office." Eli puts his beer down and looks closer at the photograph. "He saw the future," Eli says, half-laughing, half-choking back a sob, "Just like he said he could." "What do you think of that higher plan now?" Chen grins.
