Ally and Renee stare at their cell phones together, waiting for their respective romantic interests to call. Ally considers aloud the idea of dating other people. The doorbell rings and both women rush to answer their phones. Then Renee says, "He's come back to surprise you!" Ally opens the door, hallucinates Larry, and kisses Jackson. "You've got issues," Jackson tells her. Ally sheepishly leaves the room, somehow managing not to get her ass kicked by Renee. Jackson and Renee look at each other and say hi. See a dentist now, Renee.
I see a commercial for Temptation Island, which I never got around to seeing. If I'd known it had featured music from The Exorcist, though, I'd have been watching it all along.
Jackson tells Renee that he was embarrassed about having slept with her on the first date. They have a ridiculous argument and conclude that they must not want each other, since they both broke the first-date rule. Ally bursts out of her room and instructs Jackson to kiss Renee, leave the apartment, and then call her the next day for a dinner date, "like a gentleman." I'm sort of impressed with Ally's take-charge attitude for once, but then Jackson tells her, "I maintain: you got issues" and the show continues annoying me again.
Wallace Shawn makes Mr. Bennett look like the idiot he is, and John objects. Judge Walsh has to force John to shut up, but I'm sad because I know it won't last for long.
Melanie wears a really ugly fur scarf and suit as John complains that his opposition is "an objectionable little man who makes good points, dammit." Melanie starts getting all frisky, kissing John's neck. John ignores this and remarks on the incomprehensibility of a woman who doesn't want to have children. Melanie informs him that she doesn't want children. He is flustered, but doesn't have time to discuss it because he's due back in court.
Ally pouts down the sidewalk and then crashes into Richard because she's so busy sucking on her fingers. Richard notes her unhappiness and offers to let her confide in him. Ally babbles about missing Larry. Richard suggests his therapist, Fred Willard. He says he'll find a way to pass the cost onto a client. As always, Greg Germann is funny and deserves to be on a better show. That is why I've stopped mentioning my love for him. I still care about him, but he is in a dysfunctional environment by choice and I can't help him if he doesn't want to help himself.
