Naomi finds Sam in his office and scolds, "Don't piss Dell off!" Ah, yes, the scene in the kitchen. Sam says that Dell was interfering and "overstepping his bounds." Naomi notes that she relies on Dell to keep Oceanside running (not to mention for crossword-puzzle hints). Without looking up from his computer, Sam asks, "Is that all you need him for?" Naomi thinks that this is about her going on a date, but Sam has noticed that she has "some kind of thing going" with their hunky receptionist. "Do I like that a cute boy thinks I'm pretty? Yes," Naomi admits. "Could I ever take it seriously? No. He's a child, Sam. Just...leave it alone." Sam nods.
Pete peeks through the shutters of his office, checking on Charlotte's progress. Addy comes along, thinking they're due for more painful flirting, but Pete shushes her: "It might be asleep." Addy approves of this pronoun choice in reference to Charlotte. Now they recycle an exchange from last week, except this time it's Pete's turn to pout that Addison is enjoying watching him being "tortured," and Addison's turn to admit that this is so. They both peer at Charlotte. Then Addison clears her throat and gets serious, asking why Pete showed up at her door the other night. "I thought we could have fun," he says, breaking out the smirk. But Addison's not looking for fun. Pete knows this, because Sam told him that Addison's "the marrying kind of woman." And as far as marriage goes, Pete's been there, done that. "So if you want fun, I'm here," he offers gallantly. "If you want more..." "I should look elsewhere," Addison finishes. Pete sounds like he's about to say something sincere -- maybe he's going to tell her where the decent guys are hiding -- but they're interrupted by a cranky Charlotte, shouting from inside the office: "It's not working! I'm not sleeping!" Addison smirks her own little smirk as Pete returns to his duties, but she presses herself against the glass with a longing look that tells me she won't be looking "elsewhere" as soon as I'd like.
Cooper and Sam are sitting down with a social worker, who tells Coop that he'll have to testify at tomorrow's hearing. She explains that if the judge determines that Tess's home is an unsafe environment, she'll go into foster care. Sam wonders what happens to Marilyn in that case, but that's not this lady's problem. Cooper admits that Tess denies the abuse, but the social worker says it's not unusual for a child to defend an abusive parent. "What if Tess is telling the truth?" asks Sam. "That's why there's a judge," the social worker explains. "But the medical testimony carries a lot of weight." Cooper and Sam squirm.
Back at the clinic, Addison and Naomi escort Angie into Violet's office and introduce Violet as "our psychiatrist." It's a heartbreaking moment when Angie gets what this means: "I thought you were just going to tell me my test results...Oh." She sinks to the couch, and Addison finds her most nurturing voice to remind Angie that although she has the gene for Huntington's, she has no symptoms yet, and could go years before she does. Angie knows what those "symptoms" are likely to be -- "You mean dementia, violent rages, wetting myself?" -- so she's not so easily comforted. Naomi tries to sound hopeful about new treatments being tested, but Angie's not counting on having the time to wait around. Now Violet takes a turn, pointing out that Angie won't have to go through this alone: "You have Ray." Angie jumps up and heads for the door, saying, "I knew what I was getting into when I took that test. That stupid, stupid test!" The docs can't convince her to stay; she thanks them and rushes out, saying ominously, "I know what I have to do."
