Next we see Cindy dancing with Rick at The Bar as Mark looks on sourly. Nelle sits next to Mark and the two of them slug back shots. Across from them, Renee and Ally discuss Larry's inability to say goodbye. Ally realizes that Vonda's singing that song that goes, "I know one thing about love." (No, I don't know the name of it, and I don't care, so don't whine about it on the forum unless you enjoy being ignored.) Larry knows that that's her theme song, Ally says. He must have requested this song as his goodbye note to her! Damn, how many theme songs does Ally have? Elaine runs up, just like in the conference room, and tells Ally that Larry's waiting in a car outside. Nelle says, "Great. He's leaving you skid marks. There's a note for you." She and Mark throw back another one and Ally stares at them in a put-upon way.
Outside, Larry explains that Sam was the one who wanted to say goodbye. Sam does so, and then rolls up his window so that Ally and Larry can "smooch." Larry sadly tells Ally to remember the horrible song he wrote for her, and not to forget him. They hug and squinch their faces up. Ally grabs Larry's tie as he pulls away. Then he escapes into the car and leaves her all sad with her hair in her face. After that, there's only one thing left for her to do: she walks down the sidewalk and experiences a flashback sequence while Larry and Vonda sing the song he wrote, which was actually written by master lyricist Bob Seger. Thanks again to the forum poster who pointed that out to me -- it meant so much. Ally reaches her apartment building and finds an elaborate snowman with a note attached to his chest. The note says, "I'll be back," and has a big happy face. Ally sits on the steps and laughs bittersweetly.
Next week: Taye Diggs joins the cast as Ling's ex and the newest tactless Fish & Cage lawyer. Also, one of the guys will "pop the question" for this very special Valentine's episode.
