Summary

Michael sees Ben injecting steroids again and finally confronts him. Citing his HIV-positive status, Ben defends his drug use, telling Michael that, as an HIV-negative man, he simply cannot understand the constant anxiety about remaining healthy. Bri... (more)an witnesses Ben purchasing drugs at the gym and tells him that he's harming not only himself but also his relationship with Michael. Ben slams Brian against a row of lockers, leaving Brian with a nasty gash. In choosing the décor for their new house, Ted and Emmett weigh the pros and cons of remaining true to their gay selves versus fitting in with their straight suburban neighbors. Ted and Emmett attend a "welcome to the neighborhood" dinner hosted by the couple next door, but during the event, Ted is arrested for employing an underage person at his pornographic Web site. Ted's arrest is part of Police Chief Jim Stockwell's crackdown on gay businesses that pander to prurient interests. The chief, a candidate for mayor, vows to clean up Liberty Avenue and make it family-friendly. Brian creates a sexy television commercial for Stockwell's mayoral campaign, boosting the chief's rating in the polls. Justin brings Daphne to the apartment he shares with Ethan, who is being interviewed there by a journalist. Ethan introduces Justin as his cousin and Daphne as Justin's girlfriend. After an awkward moment, Justin and Daphne leave. Daphne tells Justin that, despite his problems with Brian, he never denied his relationship with Justin. When Ethan substitutes for an ill soloist with the Harrisburg Symphony, Justin secretly attends the concert. After the performance, Justin is about to surprise Ethan with his presence when he spies Ethan talking to and leaving with a pretty young man.
