Sara asks Meg what she is going to do. Meg told Sara that Ben and Maria have a child together and she has to deal with it. Sara says that maybe Tess and Maria fixed the paternity test. Meg told Sara to let it go, that Benjy is Ben's son and that Ben is going to be a part of his life and that she can handle that.
Ben told Maria that the best thing for Benjy is to move in with him and Meg. Maria agrees but, only if she moves in to. Ben told Maria that that is impossible that Ben, Meg, and Maria cannot live together. Maria says that everything has changed since Benjy came along. Ben says not everything that he still wants a divorce and that he loves Meg and intends to marry her. Ben and Maria continue to argue over where Benjy should live, neither one of them wants to be a part-time parent. They agree that they are at an impasse and Ben finally gives in. He told Maria that she can stay, for now. But first he must talk to Meg to make she will be okay with the arrangement. They then start talking about making Benjy feel at home. Ben talks about buying him one of those race car beds and Maria told him that he is trying to live vicariously through their son. Meg comes in. Maria says that Ben and Meg need to talk and she leaves. Ben told Meg that she is not going to like what he has to ask her about bout that it is the only solution. He told her about Maria staying. WHAT?? Ben told Meg that if she can't handle that then he will understand. Meg told him no, that she is not thrilled with the idea but they have to do what is best for Benjy.
Sara is daydreaming....Casey and Brad are walking on the beach. Brad wants to know what it is like to be able to get any woman that he wants. Casey says that it feels great but that there is only one girl that has been on his mind. Brad says that she must be hot and Casey says that she is. Brad asks who it is, Casey points and says THAT GIRL. It looks like Casey is pointing to Sara and there is a sequence like the opening of the THAT GIRL TV show. Then Casey says no not you, and points again and says that other girl, and is pointing to Meg.
Casey taps Sara on the shoulder and says it seems like you were a million miles away, were you thinking about me. Sara says yeah that she was, about how she would like to be alone with him. Just then Casey gets a page and has to go to the beach for an emergency. Sara is left standing there and she says that she is not going to lose Casey but if Tim told him the truth or if Ben and Meg break up that Casey will turn to Meg. She then says that she knows that she made a promise but there is only one thing left to do.
