Hoping to prove she's there for him, Summer sacrifices her pay cheque to clear Andrew's debt. But, when he has an adverse reaction to her gesture, the fundamental issues in their relationship finally rise to the surface and Summer suggests they should take a break. To her surprise, Andrew agrees. While it's clear they're both miserable in their decision, they remain stubborn and push on with their lives.
