The Mediation -
Rick and Miles
Rick goes along with David to meet Miles. This leads, in a subsequent, private, meeting with Miles opting to work with Rick in preference to David.
Switching Tutoring Assignments
Jennifer changes the tutoring assignment for Eli by writing in Grace's name. She tells Grace that this is because she knows the person originally assigned but she trusts Grace more.
Appraisal of Lily's house
Part of the Mediation process, but Jake instead gets Real Estate agents to do this (Ed Cale) since the appraisal is free.
Silence on the phone
Eli calls Grace to ask her about his reading assignment (Camus' The Stranger). He then asks Rick to hang up the phone when he pick's up upstairs, as Grace asks Lily to hang up their phone when she picks up in her room. There follows a classic breathy silence when both Rick and Lily listen to each other do and say nothing while waiting. One of the most memorable silences of the show.
Rick cries alone in his room
Rick interrupts the Mediation
Unknowingly, Rick calls Lily while she's at Mediation to set up a meeting (see below).
The Awkward Meeting
Rick walks into the tutoring room to pick up Eli (who's talking with Grace). Lily walks in a few moments later and there ensues yet another awkward moment between them. Grace and Eli excuse themselves quickly, leaving Lily to babble about The Stranger while Rick stands there in utter dispair.
The break-up and healing
Rick attempts to break up with Lily at a restaurant (the very same one she broke up with him at in Episode 1). All goes according to his plan (painful as it is) until they finally say goodbye outside. The farewell kiss leads to more, and another classic, memorable moment ensues.
Rick: "I can't let you go".
Lily: "Thank God".
