He doesn't remember his mother the way everyone else does - she was great. It's almost the anniversary of her death and his dad is going to marry the woman who killed her. On the patio, Tim calls Phyllis and says he told them nothing. She agrees to meet him at Trumbles bookstore.
Still at the station, Ronan tells Michael that he believes Tim knows plenty of secrets where Phyllis is concerned. Michael agrees. He can get around the confidentiality issue, but worries Tim's testimony will destroy Phyllis's life.
