We are now in Los Angeles and Johnny has been busy writing lyrics for his song "Dirty Love" which he describes as a love/hate, give/take game that he plays with the media. He meets with Lucian and tells him he wants to win a Grammy with the song -- Lucian remains stoic. In the hotel bathroom, Johnny Skypes with his mother, Patti, and announces that he is trying his luck at singing. She expresses surprise to put it mildly. Johnny comments that taking this time off from competitive skating has actually been harder for his mother, who has been there by his side since the beginning -- aww, sweet. Moms never get enough credit.
