Addison sends Naomi off on her first date since college. The next day at Oceanside, Naomi is depressed that her date was a tragic disaster since the only topics of conversation she could come up with were about sperm, eggs and uteruses. Hey, it’s better than talking politics!
Dr. Charlotte King barges in to the office demanding to see Sam. She's suffering from a bad case of insomnia. Sam suggests she see Pete, whose holistic medicine might help. It doesn’t. Violet doesn't have any luck with Charlotte, either. The ice queen doesn't want to open up in therapy, but does reveal that while she's sexually active, guys usually bolt right after doing the deed. With her tough exterior, it's not hard for us to see why she hasn't had a real intimate relationship in years.
So, it's back to Pete, who does his best to be nice to Charlotte despite her abrasiveness. He rubs a concoction on her temple, trying to be encouraging. But Charlotte is uncomfortable and confesses that she comes from a family that doesn’t know how to show affection. Pete continues to soothe her and, like magic, she finally falls asleep. Charlotte actually sleeps through the whole night at Oceanside. Sometimes when you’re cranky, all you really need is a nap.
[break]Cooper treats a young girl, Tess, who has bruises up and down her arms. Tess swears she tripped and fell, but Cooper suspects child abuse. Her mom, Marilyn, is a frail woman with MS. Could she really hurt her daughter? Coop follows his instincts and calls child protective services.
Before he takes the stand in court, Cooper runs into Tess in the hallway. Tess admits her mother does abuse her, but argues that that's her cross to bear and Coop should butt out. He doesn't. On the stand, he testifies against Marilyn. Tess is going to be taken away from her. It was rough, but we all know Cooper did the right thing.
Addison and Naomi have a tough case. A young married woman, Angie, asks them to lie to her husband, Ray, and tell him he's infertile. She doesn’t want kids because she may be dying from Huntington's disease, in which one's brain cells slowly deteriorate. Angie doesn’t want Ray to leave her, nor can she bear the thought of bringing a child into the world just to watch her die. Addison’s tests are conclusive: Angie does have Huntington’s.
[break]A distraught Angie refuses to be counseled by Violet and runs out of Oceanside. She says, "I know what I have to do." An hour later, her husband Ray storms into Oceanside. Angie has left him. What did they say to her! Later, Angie returns to Oceanside with Ray at her side. She’s decided not to run away from her problems and she wants a baby after all, despite her limited lifespan.
Another surprising convert is Charlotte, who exits Pete's office with a shopping bag of potions to help her sleep. But is it the potions that helped her? Or is it, as Charlotte points out, "Pete's good hands."
The Oceanside crew then retires to Addison’s beach house. Addison and Pete share a long, romantic kiss. But then Addison pulls away telling him, "I don't want 'fun' and a person should get what she wants. Goodnight, Pete." We’re thinking Pete’s gonna be the one having trouble sleeping tonight.
