Don't Ask

Bad News - Don't ask your husband if he kissed your half-sister, because he totally did. Don't ask your student out on a date, because it's skeevesville, and she'll give you what-for for acting like a pretentious ass. Don't ask your boyfriend to marry you in the aftermath of a tragedy, because he won't say no, but he won't say yes, either, and it's awkward. And don't ask Justin to keep a secret for you, because renting a billboard is a lot faster.

Sexual Politics - I have written some crappy headlines in my career; this is not the worst, but it's in the bottom ten. I apologize to you all.

It's a pretty lame episode, but thanks to Kitty's excessively flattering B-plot, Warren gets bagged on repeatedly, so it's not a total loss.
