He accuses her of making Rose's head spin with crazy ideas of her love for Paul. Dusty sinks a little lower in his slime pit and accuses Lily of wanting Rose to marry Paul because, "You don't want her to hook up with me." Dusty thinks Lily still has a secret passion burning for her ex-lover. Lily tries to slap him, but Dusty grabs her arm and whispers, "Your sister's a lot quicker."
