Eli is visiting his therapist to regain certification to practice law, and claims that for the first time in six months he had a musical vision. However, the therapist realizes that he’s making it up to make the point that his life is back to the way it was. Eli still feels he’s capable of practicing law even without the visions. She wonders if he’s depressed but Eli insists that he isn’t. He explains he’s been back at the office for one week, where Patti has been trying to get him to pick numbers for the lotto. When he reminds her he had the aneurysm removed, she gives him a present of a MP3 player to hear music when he works...

Episode Quotes
Eli: Come on, you’re Nate, rock star chick magnet, mm? Probably be the first guy in history to successfully operate on his own brain aneurysm.
Nathan: If I botch it, can I sue myself?

Eli's Therapist: You had the aneurysm removed. You were quite clear that you wanted your life to return to what you consider normal. But you’re meant for so much more, Eli. you’re one of those people for whom “normal” is a failure of potential.

Matt: Well, we both care about Taylor.
Eli: Might be the only thing we have in common.
Matt: Please God let that be true.
Eli: You know he uses more hair product than you, right?
Taylor: Yeah, it’s part of his charm.
