"You haven't spoken to Rosie in… twelve years?" "Well you never know, she may call." ~Vic and Debbie

With this episode comes a lot of danger for a lot of the characters. Michael finally realizes that Ben is human and that he makes mistakes. Justin falls head-over-heels for an attractive young violinist named Ethan and Brian shows Justin little sentimentality on his birthday. The ending was bizarre because it is just so obvious that Brian is in love with Justin and yet he does things like that. Ted's brief relationship with Luke was interesting, but it all seemed kind of pointless in the end (although maybe he's still hung up over him in the next episode?) This episode brought a lot of different elements into play, and they all worked perfectly.
