Well before we can get to that kiss..........A very mortified Robin walks in on Noah & Anna almost in a kiss. Robin: "Oh God!" covering her eyes. Anna: "Hi, you didn't want to knock maybe?" Robin: "The door was open and then I heard a crash" she says defending her intrusion. Of course Patrick is not far behind her. As they pick up the pieces of whatever it was that broke, Noah asks them "You were actually spying on us?" Robin says no, and she explains she was just stopping by and heard the crash a little on the defense. Noah lays into Patrick, "I thought I said I didn't need a chaperon this morning" Patrick tries to defend himself. Noah lays into him "I'm your father, I'm supposed to help you learn from my mistakes right?" as he sits down on the couch casually. Robin: "And we are here to help you before you make a whopper of your own!" Anna: "You can't worry about us, we are consenting adults" Noah seems to be gazing at the open magazine on the coffee table featuring an ad for vodka I believe. Robin reminds Anna she is supposed to be coaching Noah on Eli for the concert. Noah: "Yeah, she is doing a terrific job too" as he looks at Anna with an adoring smile on his face. The compliments fly between the two of them. Anna: "He is very talented". Robin goes on to tell them its not a good idea to mix work and pleasure. Noah reminds her that she has been doing just that for months. Patrick has to agree with his father. Robin continues to try to reason with Anna, Noah is NOT Eli, she is making Noah into Eli. Just then Robin announces to all that "We need to talk!" Patrick takes that as his cue and he pulls Noah up and out. Before leaving Noah says: "You mean I'm going to get the talk too?" Patrick: "Its not going to hurt" Noah: "When did they become the parents?" Anna: "You better do as you are told" sarcastically. Noah comes back with the "I''ll try to sneak out later line" and Patrick drags him off.
The Birds & The Bees
Patrick & Noah go back to his place. Noah: "You going to sit me down and tell me about the birds & the bees" as he laughs. Patrick asks him to be serious. Noah says Robin is only freaked out because it's their parents. Patrick says Noah is getting carried away by fantasy. Noah replies "Anna is NO fantasy, trust me". Patrick tells him he is being taken over by Eli, the swagger, the attitude, the wardrobe. Noah defends himself and says its what you wanted. He goes on to say that Robin thinks that their relationship is a potential walk down the isle. It's not, they are just having fun Noah tries to assure Patrick. Noah is living in a dream, Patrick says and he thinks he is drinking again. "Are you?" Patrick asks..........
Meanwhile back at Anna's she tries to reassure Robin that there is no chance in hell that this is going to turn into something serious, using her job as the main reason. Robin of course disagrees. Anna says love is not a ride she wants to go on. Robin thinks Anna is getting a rush out of transforming Noah into Eli and Noah is getting a rush out of becoming him.
And the answer is.....
Noah answers Patrick. "I've had a liver transplant, I'd be crazy to start drinking again" (ok so not really a direct answer) Patrick says it really wasn't an answer. Noah decides to take the heart to heart route with him. He goes on to tell him he isn't drinking, he is happy, hasn't felt this way in "I can't remember when". Life after Patrick's mother dies, he hated himself, and alcohol was it. He continues that he needed to stop, he needed something that wasn't alcohol and he has Patrick to thank for it, him, his work at GH. "I can't tell you how good it feels to have women interested in me again" Patrick doesn't think the attention he is getting is because of himself, its because he is acting like Eli. "I'm not giving up my day job if that's what your thinking" (kind of ironic don't you think?) "I'm not chasing groupies" he goes on to say he is working his butt off to make this work. Patrick "What happens after the concert?" Noah: "I go back to being, what you called me, the obnoxious, abrasive, Neurosurgeon everyone has come to love" until then he is going to have a good time with a really sexy woman. Patrick doesn't give up. "What about Anna after the concert?" Noah tells him he doesn't see a future with Anna, their lives are incompatible. "Tell Robin to stop freaking out, its not going anywhere" as he walks out.
Let them have fun
Patrick & Robin are alone in their apartment and are still discussing the parents. They settle on a decision to "not let it effect us" (Yeah right) Patrick is a little more receptive of the idea, but Robin comes around. They are having fun, so let them be.
The brave one
Noah goes back to Anna's. He knocks on the door and she answers. Noah: "Can I come in or am I off limits?" with a cute smile. Anna looking down the hallway says: "You are brave enough to show up, I am brave enough to let you in" Noah enters and see's Anna has her "equipment" out. "Am I interrupting something" Noah asks. Anna tells him, he likes is scalpels sharp, she likes her gun loaded and she falls casually into the couch. She asks him if he and Patrick sorted things out. Noah tells her about the conversation. Patrick came to him with this idea and I said no, now I am getting carried away with it according to Patrick. Anna tells him Robin pretty much said the same thing. That she is "transferring her Eli crush to Noah". Noah replies with "That's not the worst thing is it? with a smile as he plays with her hair and they get closer. Anna tells him Robin said it was going to end in disaster" Noah says "I think she worries too much" and they lean in and make out, Anna's fingers running through Noah's hair!
Putting the breaks on
As they move further into the couch and continue to kiss, Anna puts the breaks on. She tells Noah she can't stop thinking of Robin. Noah reminds her that they agreed "not to think about the kids". Anna says Robin brought up a few good points. Name one Noah says as he tries to continue what they started. Anna jumps up as does Noah and he asks "Your saying we can't sleep together until your daughter says its OK?" Anna: "I'll call you tomorrow". With that Noah leaves.
