Brian's horrible radiation therapy gives him nightmares about Vic taunting him. At the office he has to agree to Ted sending him home and receiving clients. Justin is physically barred from approaching him or the firm, but Mikey sees through Brian's pride and convinces Justin to return. Hunter is even more excited than Mikey about the Hollywood perspectives for Rage, and two checks of $10,000 make for happy authors. Ben, on the other hand, is deeply frustrated that no publisher takes on his manuscript. Emmett recruits gay performer Darren 'Shanda Leer' for catering at his party. At Drew Boyd's engagement party Emmett speaks up against homophobic insults. Written by KGF Vissers

Emmett: [to Drew, talking about football] You know, I can't see the difference between how you play your game on Sunday afternoons, and how I play my games on Saturday nights.
Emmett: [Drew tackles him] ...this also isn't that much different from my Saturday nights.

Amazing ending saves somewhat uneventful episode
13 January 2008 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Episode 409 "And if I wanted to leave you, I've had better reasons, plenty of them!" ~Justin

This episode didn't do much in the way of forwarding the plot, but it did have quite a few Justin/Brian scenes that made it all worthwhile. I also have a bad feeling that the Ben/Michael relationship could end in disaster. The whole Hollywood deal continues to get exceedingly interesting, and I can't wait to see how it all ends. Debbie's relationship with Horvath is kind of faulty, especially since he seemed so keen to come to her aid last episode.The ending with Justin and Brian was perfect, and it gave Justin some absolutely clever dialogue. Hunter is actually a pretty decent character now, and I don't mind him at all.
