Ling and Richard walk into the dance hall, and it is filled with elderly people dancing. The men see Ling and desert their partners and run over to her. She tells them they will all get their dance if they wait their turn. "Marty!" she shouts to one of them. "My little Valentine," he says back to her. She introduces Marty to Richard as her best friend. She says that Richard is someone with whom she works. Ouch. Marty tells Ling that his "batteries are running a little low tonight" and that he's going to bed. Ling is pouty until Marty says that they'll have the next dance first. He says that they've been dancing together for eight years. Ling pulls him away for a dance. Ling is the only person they dress normally on this show. Ling asks why Marty is going to bed so early. "First, we dance," Mary says, and slowly spins her around. They dance. Dancing. Dancey-dance-dance. Richard is fingering all sorts of wattles. Then he fingers a biceps wattle. They all giggle, and so do I. I guess I can see what Gwen sees in him after all. More dancing. Ling asks what the matter is. Marty tells her that he's being kicked out of the home: "Lucy Taylor. She says my stories are agitating all the other residents." He has two weeks to leave.
Cut to Ling asking Lucy Taylor how she could evict someone from a nursing home. Lucy says that the residents never get any sleep. "The residents love him here," Ling says. Lucy brings a patient named "Walter" over and asks him why he's carrying a baseball bat. He says it's to defend himself from the pygmies. He says that Marty told him about them. Many glances are exchanged, and lots of sighs are sighed.
