03/04/2003 Kendall Forgets Petey

"Tad and Liza. Just like old times, they kissed at Jake's apartment. Liza wondered why that happened, Tad said it seemed like a good idea at the time. Liza asked Tad to let go of her, he asked her to let go of him. Liza freaked out, saying "I can't do this!" and ran out for an appointment with her marriage therapist, as Tad pleaded for her not to leave, just as the door slammed.

David, Anna, and Leora. While the proud parents were anxiously awaiting test results, Greenlee came to visit. They said they hadn't called her about the premature birth because of their fear for the worst and not wanting to put her through that. Greenlee was annoyed and said they should not have done that because she wants to share in all the family moments. The baby is tiny and has the lungs of Kelly Osbourne, according to Anna. They told Greenlee the baby's name, Leora, and introduced the baby to her special Auntie. Greenlee held the baby and thought it had Leo's heart and spirit. Greenlee gave Leora a teddy bear named Rupert that had belonged to Leo. The parents said Leora may go to med school or the police academy when she grows up, no pressure. Anna told Greenlee that someday she may hold her own baby and Greenlee said it may be sooner than they think....as soon as finds out who her mystery man is. Anna and David asked some questions, but Greenlee really didn't have any answers. Anna and David were very concerned about Greenlee, but she thought she was close to tracing the secret admirer. They agreed she should follow her heart. David got word that the test results still show a problem with the baby's heart.

Kendall and Michael. Kendall came to Michael's hotel room and he assured her (with slow, steamy kisses) that she had nothing to fear. As Michael closed the blinds, Kendall began to undress and they fell into bed. In the afterglow, Michael confessed to Kendall that he's wanted her since they met in Aspen and how he has never pursued a woman the way he has pursued her . She was amazed and wondered if his villa in Tuscany is really a monastery, with him as a monk with all the right moves. Michael was full of praise for Kendall and she was very grateful and told him how right it feels to be with him, how she felt like she belonged with Michael. Michael asked if Kendall really pulled a gun on Erica once. Kendall then remembered Petie and being late to pick him up and had to leave right away. Michael, in Prince Charming mode, worked hard to convince Kendall that he'd still be there for her when whatever situation was straightened out. After Kendall left, Michael called his father again and assured him he can deliver everything as promised.

Liza. Lysistrata was seeing another patient when Liza stormed in and kicked the other patient out. The patient asked if this was part of his therapy. Lysistrata said they'd discuss it at the next session. Liza was distraught and asked for help as she feared she'd trashed her life...again. Lysistrata told Liza she can't interrupt other patient's in the future, Liza said it was an emergency and Adam can't know, she couldn't even talk about it. Lysistrata then instructed Liza to write down what happened. Liza scribbled on a piece of paper and handed it to Lysistrata. Lysistrata thought she wrote that she had killed a man, and Liza corrected her to say she'd only kissed a man, other than her husband. Liza said it was someone she had a long and complicated history with, someone she definitely should not have kissed. Lysistrata wondered if she'd gone to bed with him, which offended Liza greatly, as a married woman. Lysistrata reminded her she shouldn't be so indignant, since her marital status didn't stop her from the lip lock. Lysistrata wondered if Liza was expecting her to judge her, scold her, tell her to sin no more. Liza implored Lysistrata to tell her why she did this. The therapist only said it's her dime, she should tell her who the irresistible man was. Liza was offended and said she never called him irresistible, but she admitted it was Tad Martin, and that they have a long history, going back to high school. Lysistrata was clearly very interested, remembered meeting Tad at the Fusion party and thought he was a real "cutie pie." Then, Lysistrata was very eager in knowing more details and exactly what had rekindled the spark, besides problems with Adam. Lysistrata then grilled Liza for specifics about how Tad and Adam are different. Liza waxed poetic about Tad's qualities, sense of humor, how he can be crazy, wild, unpredictable, funny, exciting...as a friend...and as a lover. Lysistrata was busy taking notes, then asked why Liza is married to Adam instead of Tad. Lysistrata suggested Liza feel, instead of think her way through this. Liza admitted that Tad is her best friend, going through the best of times and worst of times...Lysistrata recited the traditional wedding vows and said he sounds like a husband and Liza sounds more married to Tad than Adam. Liza protested, said Tad was only fun, very spontaneous. Lysistrata opined that Tad knows how to boogie, leads with his hips, has lots of eye contact, and wondered who can resist that crooked smile. She then asked Liza if kissing Tad had anything to do with her. She reminded Liza that she saw Tad dancing with Lysistrata at the Fusion Party, then after years of being just friends planted a wet one on him, and suggested that Liza connect the dots.

Lysistrata retreated to her hammock and Liza berated her for turning her therapy session into being all about Lysistrata. Liza warned her that if Lysistrata has feelings for Tad, she'll end up alone in her own hammock.

Lysistrata was ecstatic about the breakthrough and accused Liza of having residual feelings for Tad, and Liza replied that Lysistrata needed to have head examined. Lysistrata then reminded Liza that she was the one making the session about the therapist, and it should be about Tad. She asked Liza what's missing from her marriage. Liza simply stated that this was a waste of time. Lysistrata asked what Liza is afraid of, if not the grip of passion she can't control that Tad awakened in her. Liza finally had to admit that Tad gives her something that Adam doesn't. Liza tried to retract that statement, but it was too late. Liza then struggled to list Adam's qualities, concerned parent topping the list, followed by competent businessman, and the fact he loves Liza. Liza gave a perfunctory answer to the question does she love her husband. Lysistrata wondered if she'll tell Adam about the kiss. Adam made a grand entrance at that moment, very eager to get to work to make their marraige the epic union it was meant to be.

Fusion. Palmer burst into the Fusion office, looking for Kendall and Petie. Petie was there doing homework, with Laurie forcing him to behave. Palmer was amazed that Petie was doing homework and Petie complained of being kidnapped by a school marm. Laurie wanted to check his homework, Palmer was furious, and Petie agreed, except that Palmer was furious at Kendall for shirking her responsibilities. Laurie came to Kendall's defense, but Palmer was upset, although not too upset to recognize Laurie's way with Petie in getting him to do his homework. Petie begged his father not to get rid of Kendall, but Palmer's mind was made up, and he planned to do more than just fire her. Just then, Kendall called and spoke to Laurie about Petie who suggested Kendall get to the office right away. Palmer was very impressed with Laurie and asked to talk to her about a permanent arrangement. Laurie left to go to her waitress job at BJ's. Palmer talked to Greenlee about Kendall's lack of responsibility and how he is no longer willing to lease them the building for $1/year. Yikes, Greenlee doesn't know where Kendall is either. Palmer told Greenlee he plans to kick Fusion's derriere and leaves. Then, Kendall returns to Fusion and Greenlee lambasted her for ignoring her responsibilities. She further hoped that Kendall just had the best sex ever, since she just cost them all the company they love.

Tad. Brooke had an emergency trip to DC and called Tad to her house to ask him to take care of Jamie. Brooke recognized the guilty look on Tad's face and asked what he'd done. He confessed that he did something wrong, and that he didn't feel bad about it. Further prying from Brooke got him to admit to kissing Liza and that it wasn't an innocent peck, more of a tonsil check and lip wrestle. Brooke suggested he act like an adult and deal with it as she ran out the door to catch her plane.

Jamie heard it all and Tad is disappointed. Tad asked if any of his advice about women ever made sense and Jamie looked unsure, at best, of how to respond. Jamie was accepting of Tad's behavior and said he was intolerant of Brooke in the past because that was before he understood that things just happen. Jamie told Tad that if he wants Liza and she wants him, they should go for it. Tad was appalled and said "ohmigod, it's genetic." Jamie said if they have a chance for something great, they should take it. Tad asked him if this is the part where Jamie slips him a condom and the car keys and shoves him out the door. Tad was sorry he asked and said next time he needs advice, he'll email Dear Aggie. Tad also accused Jamie of wanting him to go after Liza only as a way to stick it to Adam. Jamie admitted it would be a positive side effect. Tad asked Jamie what if he were Jamie and Liza was Laurie. Tad immediately knew he had hit on something. Tad and Jamie talked, and Jamie admitted to kissing Laurie, his brother's girlfriend, and that he'd do it again in a heartbeat. Tad went into fatherly mode and asked questions about the kiss. He told Jamie this is a sticky situation and he can't blow the brotherly relationship with his built-in best friend. Tad reminded Jamie that JR was there way before girls went from cooties to cuties and he shouldn't risk the situation, Jamie should wait until JR and Laurie broke up. Jamie reminded Tad that he didn't wait for Liza to break up with Adam before kissing her. Jamie and Tad discussed playing by the rules. Jamie admitted he thinks about Laurie all the time. Tad reminded his son that the world is full of beautiful, amazing women and Jamie can't go around jumping their bones all the time. Tad urged caution and suggested Jamie do the right thing, if only because Laurie is his brother's girlfriend. Jamie asked Tad what he plans to do about Liza. "Touche", said Tad. Jamie was not interested in his father telling him to do what he says, not what he does. He left the house and was next seen kissing Laurie at BJ's."
