He tells her it is ok. He kisses her and while they kiss Lily walks in. She is embarrassed that she interrupted and after she finds out that Karen is OK she leaves the room even though they tell her it is ok. After they are alone again Neil says he wants to pick up where they left off then kisses her again.

Lily goes back to the table and excuses herself again. They ask where she is going. She says she is going to step outside and get some fresh air, that she will be right back. She goes out and calls Colleen and leaves a message for her to call her. Cane comes out the door and surprises Lily. He tells her he saw her rush out like that so he was worried about her. He tells her that her date seems like a nice guy. She says well he isn’t really her date. He tells her that seeing her there with that guy made him jealous. She says it did? Cane leans over and kisses her.
