Nick grouses to Matt that Althea is hiding things from him, and he suspects she's lying. Matt admits to a furious Nick that he wants to move Martha from the lab to the nurse's station to replace Carolee, prompting Nick to explode. Afterward, Nick hopes Martha will admit that Althea spent the night in her apartment, but Martha denies it. Later, Nick asks the same question of Anna. Gordon Dobbs, Althea's attorney, turns up at Hope Memorial with divorce papers for Nick to sign. At first, Nick refuses to sign but consents after learning that the divorce may be deemed invalid if either party has lied or perpetrated fraud.
