Speaking of Spelling trademarks, when we cut back from commercial, another plot is being rehashed for about the thousandth time. Chickenhead and Dopey are talking about their relationship again. It all boils down to Chicken not believing that Dopey isn't interested in Heather. She wants to set him free so she can find out if he really loves her. There's more, but I'm having a hard time hearing it over the snoring of my rabbits, who ask me to play tapes of this show when they have difficulty falling asleep. Dopey sulkingly wishes Chickenhead a happy Valentine's Day, and she just says goodbye to him. It looks like they're broken up. Okay, great. Moving right along, Chicken's roommate, Brett, starts massaging her shoulders and saying he will take her out for a late dinner. Then they can come home and watch "a bad movie on TV." Chickenhead comments that this sounds like a date. He jokingly asks, "Too soon?" When she turns around to whack him with a pillow, he leans in and kisses her. My first instinct is to say that he's being kind of presumptuous and insensitive, but then, anyone's better than Dopey, and the sooner Shana realizes this, the better. Hmm, it looks like she's already realized it.
Dopey stares at the phone he's just hung up. We hear a knock at the door. Dopey and John argue over who should answer it. Dude, how about you both chill out and nobody answers it. That works for Mr. Cate and me. Besides, it's probably Heather, and she's hearing-impaired, so you could blare some Zeppelin if you wanted, and she still wouldn't hear you to know you were home. But I don't think I'd want to avoid Heather anyway -- she's turning into the best character on the show. I probably shouldn't get too attached to her, though, since it looks like she'll be outta there after this ep. She's telling Matt not to let Chickenhead know she's in town. When Dopey asks why not, Heather says, "Because I shouldn't have told you I'm back." She doesn't want to be responsible for creating problems between Dopey and Chicken, and when she hears that they have broken up, she encourages Matt to "make it work." They hug, and Heather leaves. Dopey must be extra-stupid to choose Chickenhead over Heather. He dials Shana's number, but lo and behold, she's not there. I assume she's out with Brett.
