Michael (Hal Sparks) is moving in with David (Chris Potter), and the good doctor tells Michael to put his stuff anywhere. Unfortunately, Michael's action figures and toy robots and his life-size cardboard cutout of Captain Astro don't exactly suit David's elegant tastes. Emmett (Peter Paige) is turning down guys left and right, resisting temptation in an effort to maintain his pact with God after his HIV scare. Lindsay (Thea Gill) and Melanie (Michelle Clunie) are having problems. Melanie feels like Lindsay is pulling away from her, and since she has no legal claim on Gus, she feels like she's just there to pay the bills. Lindsay is reluctant to talk about their problems. Brian (Gale Harold), obviously missing Michael, calls on Ted (Scott Lowell) as a replacement. Ted bores Brian, but Ted has a great time getting together with Brian's many cast-offs. Brian is so desperate for company that he starts hanging out with Melanie and Lindsay, much to Melanie's dismay. Tracy (Lindsey Connell) shows up at the Big Q, and chastises another employee for making homophobic jokes, but she's obviously been hurt by Michael's deception. She calls him "Mr. Novotny," and gives him two weeks notice. Another hot guy, Matt (Joseph Scoren), takes an interest in Emmett, but Matt just wants to take Emmett to a gay conversion church group called "See the Light." Emmett, already questioning his lifestyle, has some initial resistance, but decides to give the group a chance. Brian invites Justin (Randy Harrison) over for the first time ever. Michael comes home from work and is distressed to find that David's put all his stuff out of sight. Michael and Tracy have a heart-to-heart talk. Justin talks to Michael about why Brian behaved so badly at his birthday party, and convinces him to talk to Brian.
