Hammond and Ally work at the coffee shop. They obviously enjoy each other's company. Sandy comes in for a small decaf and, unwittingly, for advice from Ally. Ally guesses that she's having problems with a guy. Sandy explains that it's a guy just coming through a divorce. She likes him, but doesn't want to be his rebound. Ally asks what the guy says. Sandy claims that he says, "All the right things." Yeah, for a '50s teen novel, maybe. Sandy admits that it's Billy. Ally is surprised. She points out that she's Georgia's friend (Whatever! Dang. Get off it!) and then gives Sandy Secretary a pep talk anyway. She says Billy's special and if there's a chance that he's the one, Sandy should go for it. At least she qualifies it by saying first that she's the last person to give advice about love or anything. Hammond eavesdrops and seems moved by Ally's little speech.
Vonda sings and John does an "angry dance" with a feather duster. Gosh, these quirks are hilarious. Richard watches him for a while, prompting the warped-record sound. John yells that he's angry. It's supposed to be funny, but it isn't at all. Then he tells Richard that Nelle is a "rich bitch elitist snob." Wow. DEK has managed to call another woman a bitch. How saucy. How does he shoehorn them in? Of course I don't even have the right to be angry, because he let Nelle get in so many put-downs on John earlier. I guess I should just smile, learn that we're all bitches, and buy the pretty things I see on the commercials. Richard points out that it'd be worse to go home and find Nelle with a janitor. "Oh, balls!" says John. Oh, shut up, John. They plop down on the couch so that Richard can deliver his sermon of the week on women. The gist is that John is a non-handsome, short, funny, little man whose equalizer is money. ("Let's say it again. Money. Let's go for the trilogy. Money.") He says John should be grateful instead of condemning Nelle for her values, because without them, he never would have stood a chance of "getting her." John thanks him dryly for the fresh perspective. Greg Germann is cute.
