"I can give up trying to please you. You can give up hope that I'll finally turn into you," he says. Adam turns away but JR keeps talking. When he brings up Krystal, Adam gets mad and points the finger at JR. Finally mad, JR tells Adam that he doesn't care about anything any more, and he hates the feeling. With fire in his eyes JR swears to build a life, get a job and make a family on his own! "I'm moving out," he says! JR packs a few things and returns with a suitcase.
