Gina asks whether they should talk about Paul's last session, and he tells her that it wasn't the first time he's left her office disappointed and angry. He explains how jealous he feels when Laura describes her sexual relationship with Alex, and he starts searching for an excuse that would allow him to be with her. "Teachers marry students," he says, "Is it so wrong?" He says Charlie used to call him after leaving Gina's sessions, searching for a loophole that would allow him to sleep with her. Paul suggests that he could see Laura after some sort of "cooling-off" period, but Gina says it's essential that he obey the rules. She warns that Laura will be shocked and upset if he accepts her advances – and rightly so. Paul tells Gina how hard it is to be with Laura and not share his feelings, even though she's begging him to. "I love her," he tells Gina.
