Episode Summary

EDIT
Two Kinds of Lies
AIRED:

Brian returns from the hospital but leads everyone to believe he'd been in Ibiza. Justin discovers the truth when he overhears a message for Brian from the hospital's oncology department. He asks Michael if he knows anything about it, but Michael is just as shocked as Justin. Knowing that if Brian wanted anyone to know he would've told them, they decide to keep Brian's secret to themselves. Michael, however, later admits to Brian that he knows about his testicular cancer and that Justin is the one who told him.

Michael and Justin meet with Brett Keller, a Hollywood producer who wants to make Rage into a feature film. Michael and Justin are pleased to learn that Brett has no intention of compromising Rage's sexuality. Later at Babylon, Ben meets Brett, who he tells he's not a fan of the "mindless entertainment" Brett produces. Michael is furious at Ben for insulting Brett. When Ben tells Michael he thinks Brett is a sell-out, Michael accuses him of being jealous.

In another attempt to make peace over Vic's death, Debbie decides to purchase an elaborate headstone for his grave. She chooses a $27,000 statue of the angel Gabriel blowing his trumpet. Tired and overworked, the reality of Vic's death finally hits her after a friend of Vic's tells her what a good sister she was. Emmett convinces Horvath to talk to her, as everyone else's attempts to console her have been unsuccessful. She admits to Horvath that she was cruel to Vic right before he died. Horvath helps her understand that Vic knows she's sorry.

Auerbach decides to allow Lindsay to assemble a show of his sketches for the gallery. As they become better acquainted, he convinces Lindsay to show him her work. She admits that she thinks her work is uninspired. He challenges her to find her inspiration as he removes his clothes and poses for her.

    • Justin: Hey, I picked up some movies. I figured we just stay and watch them.
      Brian: What'd you bring? Terms of Endearment? Love Story? "My Boyfriend Has Cancer?"
      (Brian throws DVDs on the floor.)
      Justin: Why didn't you tell me?
      Brian: Maybe because I didn't want you to know. Or maybe because it's none of your fucking business!
      Justin: Brian, I'm your partner.
      Brian: Not anymore, I don't want you here. Now get the fuck out!
      Justin: Cut it out.
      Brian: I said, "Get the fuck out!"
      Justin: Brian, I love you and I want to help you.
      Brian: Get the fuck out!
      (Brian pushes Justin out the door and closes it shut.)

    • Justin: You're back.
      Brian: And you're here.
      Justin: I told you I would be, didn't I. Um, so how was your trip?
      Melanie: Weather sucked.
      Ted: But so did the men.
      Justin: I'd love to hear about it, but I have to go to class.

    • Brian: I was gonna send you a postcard.
      Justin: But the Post Office was on strike.
      Brian: I meant to call you.
      Justin: But your cellphone died and you didn't have your charger.
      Brian: How did you know that?
      Justin: You don't have to make up excuses. As long as you got whatever it was out of your system.
      Brian: It's out alright.

    • Brian: I'll see you tonight?
      Justin: If I'm in town.
      Brian: You going somewhere?
      Justin: Hollywood.

    • Brian: I thought you had food poisoning.
      Justin: I guess it was just a tummyache. Tell me about Ibiza.
      Brian: It's like I died and went to homo heaven. Beautiful guys all dressed in white. And everywhere you went, it smelled like lemon-scented air freshener.
      Justin: It sounds great.
      Brian: I even f***ed a matador.
      Justin: No way.
      Brian: Olé.
