Bailey is talking to an AA friend about how people want him to be happy and feel free. The AA guy says that maybe it's a blessing not to need someone. He explains, "Depending on someone too hard is just one crutch instead of another." Bailey can't believe that the guy is saying that love is another addiction. AA guy says that's not what he meant. Bailey says, "I stayed sober for her more than anyone. And there were a lot of nights where I wanted to use where she was the reason I didn't -- her alone. So how does it feel to be free? It feels like I want a drink." Scott Wolf must have spent some time with recovering alcoholics, or the writers did, because they have the lingo down pat.
Claudia is taking pictures of the football team practicing, particularly #34. When they take a break, #34 comes over to get a drink and we see that it's Derrick, the guy from the darkroom earlier. She says that she heard his photo project turned out well. I have to say, Claudia looks pretty natural with a camera hanging around her neck. A lot of people would just look dorky. She says that her project has to be redone because her bulldog turned out as a bright white light with eyes, but while she is talking Derrick grabs her camera wordlessly and replaces the lens cap. The zoom lens pokes up between them in a rather phallic way. He says something about preventing scratches and then invites her to a party at his house that weekend. She accepts and then notices that Cameron has been watching the whole time. They give one another the hairy eyeball for a while.
Charlie helps Kirsten get into bed and asks Daphne to answer the phone. Daphne does not, because she is looking for aspirin, so the machine picks up. Daphne asks what happens now that the eggs are out. Meanwhile, Myra is leaving a tearful message asking Charlie to please call her, whenever he can, because her mom is mad at her about the condoms. Kirsten tells Charlie to pick up the phone. See? She's always giving him permission to do stuff. Charlie picks up and tells Myra that now is not the time, and asks to see her in school tomorrow. Myra doesn't get it and Charlie repeats it a couple of times while Daphne and Kirsten gaze at each other.
