Eli and Frank go to a movie, although Frank suggests that Eli go on a blind date with one of his clients, who is receiving acupuncture treatment to help her stop smoking. Eli isn't comfortable with the idea. As the movie starts, Eli has a vision of Patti on-screen, singing Help by the Beatles. He finds himself in the movie with her and she stops singing to say that "She's innocent." Eli tries to get more information but finds himself back in the audience, standing up as the other patrons yell at him...

Episode Quotes
Frank: Eli, I can’t help but notice we’re seem to be spending a lot of time together lately and…
Eli: Are you breaking up with me?

Eli: Hey, if I wanted to spend three hours having a long, uncomfortable conversation full of awkward pauses, I’d go out for a meal with my mother.

Taylor: Huevos rancheros?
Jordan: I see your pregnancy cravings have taken a dramatic turn for the spicy.

Jordan: Ah, yes, the sonogram. Are you gonna find out the sex?
Taylor: It’s a little too early to find out whether you can buy it a baseball mitt.
Jordan: It’s never too early for that.

Maggie: I mean, what is it about the rich that makes them think that they can buy their way into being good people?
Matt: Probably the tons of money.

Ashley: If there’s one thing I’ve learned, you can’t buy love. But you can, at the very least, comp house seats.

Taylor: Dad, why don’t you come and stay with me tonight?
Jordan: It should come as no surprise that I’m not the sort of man to “crash” at anyone’s pad, but thank you for the offer.

Matt: You’re the dude.
Taylor: What?
Matt: A hot pregnant dude, sure, but in our relationship, you’re the dude.
Taylor: Okay, I don’t--I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean.
Matt: I’m actually the mature one here, which is another first for me.

Eli: I’ve been angry and--and confused… real angry. But I’m not anymore, ‘cause… ‘cause I get it now. All the people that I’ve been asked to help. All those, uh, strangers…. now I get to help someone that I love.

Keith: You know, it’s hard to compete with the big guy.
Eli: Yeah. Maybe God could be a little less indirect next time.
Keith: Actually, I meant John Lennon. I’ll tell you, though. What I wouldn’t give to see what you see just once.

Eli: Actually, I’m just… I’m going on a blind date.
Jordan: Mmmm.
Eli: I…
Jordan: Makes sense. I appear to have run out of daughters and associates for you to romance.
