  • Episode Description
  • Bobbi Broderick comes to McNamara/Troy to have lipo so she could get a job at Saks. During the consult, she doesn't bother to read the contract she signs. After the lipo doesn't turn out to standards, she tries to get revenge against the firm by showing everyone how it "ruined her life" by showing up in restaurants and the lobby of the firm itself. Julia asks Ava to help Matt with his grades, and Ava eventually offers Matt sex in order to focus more on his schooling. Julia tries to speak with Ava about a trouble from her past - a huge mistake she made in college - and Ava realizes it involves Matt's paternity. A woman whose lips were burnt off goes in for a consult, and learns that the doctors would have to take skin from her vagina to fix her lips. She decides to do it, because her husband has never been intimate with her down there. Sean feels uncomfortable about the woman lying to her husband where the skin has come from. She tells her husband it has come from the back of her legs. Meanwhile, as Matt becomes more attracted to Ava, he is arrested after being caught masturbating outside her window. He seeks Christian to bail him out because he thought he could trust him, but Christian becomes upset for his ignorance. Matt lashes back by saying that he already has a father, and he doesn't need another one. After Ava and Matt finally have sex, the next morning Matt learns Ava has a son named Adrian - and they're the same age.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (5)

    • Liz: (to Bobbi) It's not unusual for patients to come in for a touch-up. It's not like those TV shows where everything's perfect after surgery.

    • Christian: (to Sean) If Anne Frank had been hiding in your attic, she wouldn't have got past the words "Dear diary".

    • Christian: Not everyone is lucky enough to find a woman who can get them hard physically and mentally, Sean. I just want to find someone whose company I can stand once her mouth is free of obstruction.

    • Christian: I'm putting pussy lips back on the schedule!

    • Christian: Hey, I'm all for it. With today's medical advances, there's no reason our healthy seniors shouldn't be having babies. Think of all the savings. You can share diapers, daycare, yummy jars of string beans. Liz: Asshole. Liz: (Re: fat patient) He's a heart attack waiting to happen. Christian: You're in jail for some hot piece of teenage ass? Matt: She's not a teenage piece of ass. She's your age, okay? She's the life coach my mom hired to get my grades up. Christian: Your grades, asshole, not your dick!
