Phillip tells Gus that he could use him. Gus mentions Company, and Phillip tells Gus that he’s simply trying to get Spaulding Enterprises back where it belongs and that the family needs to stick together.

Alan tells Phillip that Gus is simply curious as to why a popular local restaurant is in the way and why he can’t find another piece of land for his project. Phillip asks Gus why he’s “sticking up for those people.” Phillip tells Gus that lying for his family is honorable. Gus tells Phillip that he is “sick” and Phillip laughs.

Lizzie admits to Alex that like Tammy she is ‘untouched’ and that she doesn’t know why she told Tammy she wasn’t. Alex picks up Lizzie’s phone to make a phone call.

Joey tells Tammy that they broke up because he wasn’t good enough for her not because they didn’t sleep together. Tammy tells Joey she was wrong and his phone rings. Alex is on the other line telling Joey that Lizzie went to the jail and left very upset and that he should head to the Beacon to check on her. Joey leaves the beach.
