Episode Summary

EDIT
Gay or Straight? That's the Question
AIRED:

The Center has hired top fund-raiser, Jeffrey Pendergrass, to help them raise money for the 2004 Liberty Ride. The proceeds will benefit Liberty House Hospice, which is currently in danger of shutting down. After seeing money being spent frivolously at the lavish kick-off party, Brian grows skeptical of Pendergass' motives. Realizing Pendergass seems to be the only one benefiting from the proceeds, Brian does some investigative work. When Brian reveals to Pendergass that he's discovered his questionable history with other fund-raising organizations, the top fund-raiser leaves town-claiming the money raised thus far in Pittsburgh will cover his expenses--barely, leaving nothing for the hospice.

Hunter has repeatedly missed his curfew leading Michael and Ben to wonder if he's hustling again. When they confront him, he tells them he's been studying with a friend. They continue to press him, and he finally admits the truth that he's been seeing someone. Michael and Ben are thrilled and tell him that they want to meet this person.

Emmett and Drew have been meeting regularly at a motel for steamy encounters. Drew insists no one can ever find out about their relationship, but the rules are broken when Emmett unintentionally runs into Drew at an Iron Men's game. Assuming it's the end of the affair, Emmett is crushed and in his misery, he tells Ted about the affair and admits he was falling in love with him.

After their one night together, Auerbach wants to see Lindsay again. She tries to avoid him but is finally forced to explain that what happened was a mistake. Later, he comes to the house on his way to the airport and asks her to go with him. Lindsay declines claiming that even if a tiny part of her wanted something else, she'd still choose to stay with Melanie and their children. He gives her a kiss on the cheek and leaves. Melanie witnesses the touching goodbye and realizes that something more than a friendship developed between them.
