Outside the Bauer cabin, Michelle tells Bill she is leaving because she wants to do the right thing. Bill says he thought she was leaving because of what happened with Danny.  Michelle says that has nothing to do with it she misses Robbie.  Bill says he wants to do the right thing as well and he should be the one to leave since he offered first.  Bill says he wanted to   spend the weekend with her Ben and Marina not Marina Ben and the whole Cooper clan.  They both decide to leave and have a date at Towers later that night.
