Elaine is checking herself out in the mirror at the Unisex. Ally is behind her waiting her turn. She says that Elaine looks like Miss Hathaway. Elaine says that if Billy can change, she can too. Nelle walks in and says morning to everyone. If it's the next day, then someone forgot to change Elaine and Ally, who are still wearing the same clothes from yesterday. Nelle, however, is wearing a big, puffy sweater. Elaine and Ally stare at Nelle. Nelle says she just said it was the morning, and that she didn't say it was good. Elaine asks Nelle how she thinks the other women regard her. Nelle squints up her eyes and says, "You know, I'm not sure that they do, Elaine." That's the meanest thing I've ever heard anyone say on this show. Most catty remarks are provoked. This seemed completely out of the blue and only there so that we don't like Nelle and want Ally to get with John. Elaine leaves without a word as Ally starts chastising Nelle. Nelle asks what happened to everyone's sense of humor. "Life isn't funny! Can you not see that?" Ally then smears red lipstick all over her mouth to complete her Robert Smith impersonation and walks out the door to begin her lonely walk down Fascination Street. Nelle gives a look like, "I guess I'm supposed to be a bitch in this episode. Sure is lonely having to hate everyone for absolutely no reason."
