Caprice Pringle, the latest love of Dobie's life, believes he treats Maynard cruelly and inhumanely in that he has made Maynard so dependent upon him for everything in life, that if Dobie was ever no longer around, Maynard would not be able to survive on his own. Dobie comes to the realization that Caprice is right. Without the nerve to say so directly to Maynard's face, Dobie has to figure out a way slyly to get Maynard out of his life. But an eventual Dobie/Maynard break-up might be harder on Dobie and the Gillises than it is on Maynard. Written by
