When Jake came home, he was skeptical of Adam's ghostly instruments, but Adam left his ghost meter in the apartment anyway. Molly was apprehensive when Jake informed her he had made an appointment for her with Ben to run tests, but agreed to go through with them. When she bent down to examine Adam's ghost meter, she was terrified to find the needle waving madly, which was supposed to indicate the presence of a ghost.

While she was there, Carly received another visitor--Hal, who came to warn her not to come between Jack and Julia.

As Katie was leaving, she slyly informed Hal that his wife was having a cozy lunch downstairs with Craig.
