Judge Seymour thinks that the idea of boys renting dates is disgusting. He assumes that John had to take a moment when he first heard of it. Then he says there's no proof of prostitution and dismisses Ling with the "moral condemnation of the court." "Moral condemnation -- business will go up!" says Richard. Ling announces that she'd like to sue for malicious prosecution. Richard tells her to chill and they leave. John sits down. Nelle asks if he's coming with them. John says that never meant to hurt his children or Nelle. Nelle says she was probably being a little irrational. John says she wasn't and he's sorry. Nelle takes his hand. No one cares.
It's evening, it's snowing, and Ally's mooning in her office. Elaine comes in and tells her that she did the right thing. Elaine's wearing a skirt exactly like the red one Ally wore at the beginning of the episode. "I did? Not giving him a chance because he's homeless?" asks Ally. Elaine says, "Ally, this had no real chance. He's ill. You did the right thing." Ally thanks her. Elaine offers to buy her a drink at the bar. "No," says Ally, "I think I'm gonna head home down the snowy sidewalk while Vonda sings some crappy sad song." Elaine repeats that Ally had no other choice and then goes.
Ally walks home down the snowy sidewalk while Vonda sings some crappy sad song. Nelle and John walk home, and John stumbles over the curb. Ally smiles at strangers. Then she sees Louis at a trashcan bonfire with his homeless buddies. He's all dirty again, too. Ally gapes open-mouthed and then looks kind of happy as she turns and hurries the other way. "He couldn't have me, so he went back to the streets! He's rather be crazy than live without me! I'm so adorable! I'm the perfect modern woman!" she thinks, and her ego shoots its wad all over the inside of her coat and on the same red skirt that she was wearing the other day. The end.
Next week Ally has a dream about John and is therefore in love with him. Also, Georgia gives Billy the divorce papers. I know you can't wait.
