They tell Kevin that they think Jill knows something that is going on at Chancellor - since Kay gave him his job back there, he could find out! Kevin says he won't do it. Kevin spots Michael and Lauren grilling Ryder on the patio and goes over to their table. Ryder tells them he knows where the wedding was held, but won't tell them who he was with the night before.
