Ally and Victor return from their trip to Bermuda, and all is not well. Neither is happy, and soon after arriving home, Victor is served with papers. He is being sued by his ex-girlfriend, Sheila Hunt, for breech of contract. Unknown to Ally, Victor is an artist. He was to paint eight paintings for Sheila's gallery last year, and failed to do so, stopping at three. Ally tries to represent him, but is appalled not only to learn Victor is an artist, but that there is an ex, and Sheila's confessions about Victor's "butt fetish" as she calls it. Ally goes to see Victor's work, featuring abstract nudes, and learns he has done a portrait of her, for her upcoming birthday. Ally is horrified by the picture, with what she feels is cellulite. Victor asks to just settle the case, to put the issue to rest. He and Ally discuss his past relationship with Sheila, and his dumping of her because she was falling in love. Ally compares this to what Larry did to her, which then ires Victor. He leaves, and comes back with a one-way plane ticket to Detroit for Ally. She is very mad at his controlling ways. They part again, only to have Victor return again. Both apologize, and decide to take a break, not thinking they are what the other wants.
Richard is drawn to Liza, and can't stop his desire for her. Even with Claire's help, he can't ask her out. They later meet at her girlish, but odd apartment, complete with diving board. She allows him to watch her shower and then teases him, to try to end his sexual curiosity, but leaves before anything else can occur. Nelle and Wilson team up again with the opposing client from last week, Barry. Wilson and Nelle prove their lack of ethics as they doctor a tape to blackmail the claimant into dropping her case against Barry.
