Benton. Jesse. Your mom says you're bad. She worries about you. You got new friends? Using a condom? Jesse says that Jackie worries unnecessarily, that (as regards the condom issue) he isn't "stupid," and that he's "a man," and his parents can't get used to it. Benton suggests that they would if he treated them with respect: "Sometimes you gotta do what you don't want to do. That's part of being a man." Elizabeth appears in the doorway, clearly very excited. He asks her to wait a minute, and tells Jesse to do what Jackie says. Jesse nods. Aw. He's not bad.
In the hall, Elizabeth tells Benton that the job in Philadelphia is his if he wants it. Benton lets out this bellow of relief as she says he's a full surgical attending on the academic track. He wearily, and gratefully, hugs her, and of course this is the exact moment Finch appears, attempting to activate her jealousy chip, to ask why they're celebrating. Benton tells her that Elizabeth got him a job, and Finch diffidently says that's great, and asks where the job is. Benton says it's at "Hahnemann," and Finch recognizes it as a location in Philadelphia. Elizabeth gives him a slip of paper with a number for Benton to call, and, sensing the bad vibe, takes off. Before Finch can say anything (and, really, there's not much she could say that her big, scary neck cords don't express more eloquently), Benton tells her that he didn't have much of a choice, since he's being blackballed in Chicago. She asks when he'll see her, and he tells her Philadelphia's only an hour from Chicago by plane: "We'll work something out." "I guess we will," she deadpans. Oh, lord. You make a lot of money. He makes a lot of money. Buy a car. Take a train. Deal. Jackie walks between them, carrying Reese, and asks him if he's coming home with her; Benton says he has to make a stop first, and asks her to take Reese home. Jackie agrees, and Benton leans in and does this growling, kissing thing on Reese's neck that makes Reese giggle. Man, Reese is cute. Benton smiles -- because Reese makes him smile -- and turns that smile to the still-frosty Finch. She has no reaction. He tells her he'll call her, and gives her a quick peck on the lips. Lily rushes over and pours warm water on their mouths so that Benton can remove his lips from her icy metal case.
