(While J.T. and Liberty are at the doctor's office)
Liberty: (the baby's being shown on a monitor) How does he or she look?
J.T.: (looking obviously uncomfortable) I don't know. I can't.
Liberty: J.T. (whispers) Please.
(J.T. slowly moves so he's across from the monitor & the doctor points at the screen, indicating where the baby is)
J.T.: It-it looks...real.
J.T. (to Toby): Well, there's two solutions to my problems, my carefree friend. Mochachino and adoption.
Toby: Adoption? Wow. You, uh... sure Liberty will go for that?
J.T.: She's fifteen! It's the only thing that makes sense.
Ms. Sauve (to Liberty about her pregnancy): So. who knows?
Liberty: Only my brother and Toby.
Ms. Sauve: Not your parents? Liberty, you're six months pregnant.
Liberty: I know, Ms. Suave, but my father. There's no way I can tell him.

Mrs. Sauve: So you've just been hiding it?

Liberty: Absolutely. I want to carry this baby to full term, but afterwards...
J.T.: Liberty, there is no afterwards. But what about adoption?
Ms. Sauve: I can refer you to an agency.
J.T.: Yes, that's perfect. We're in.
Liberty: We? J.T., you broke up with me.
J.T.: Yep, but I'm still the father. If you decide to keep this baby, it becomes my problem as well.
J.T.: So what now, Mrs. Suave? Pregnancy yoga, lamaze class?
Ms. Sauve: Make a doctor's appointment? At this point, the health of the baby is paramount. (J.T. and Liberty nod)
J.T. (to his grandmother about Libery's pregnancy): Well, we're going to be parents.
J.T.'s Grandmother: James Tiberius, do you have any idea what it takes to raise a child? You are far too young!
J.T.: Well.. I thought that you could help us. I mean, you raised Mom and me.
J.T.'s Grandmother: And I'm not planning to spend my retirement going through it again!
