Tammy grows increasingly stressed by raising an infant alone, and becomes closer to a science teacher who took over her guidance counselor duties. Eric impresses his bosses with the way he handles a suspension meeting for an errant college player. Landry professes his love for Tyra, which is not really a surprise to her; their shared secret brings them closer together. Julie and Matt drift further apart as she tries to avoid feeling trapped. Matt copes with a new live-in assisted care giver as his grandmother's grip on reality slips further away. Written by Ron Kerrigan <>

You don't have to think about that, you don't have to close your eyes and hear the sound of his skull cracking every time you go to sleep, do you. Don't tell me to act like a man. 'Cause you know what, the thing about this is I would do that again for you in a second because he hurt you and because I'm in love with you, all right. And don't - don't look at me ...
