Hank drops by to see Sarah and tells her not to quit, he finds out quickly that she took a day off work to move.

Julia has made a schedule for visitation at the hospital when Kristina goes for her procedure and is telling Crosby about when he is walking Adam and Kristina’s dog, Otis, to be helpful and the mutt gets away from him.
Mark doesn’t have cable, which only makes it worse for Drew. At the Braverman’s, Kristina wants someone to be with Max for support and Haddie steps in.
Amber is at dinner with Ryan and she looks really nervous to the point that Ryan thinks she may have agreed to it just to make her grandfather happy.
