Meanwhile, Melanie is at The Oyster Bar with her grandpa who is passed out in a wheelchair. She gets a call from Boo but makes her hold while she has an argument with Jeff the waiter about why they are sitting at a table and not ordering anything. I would advise Melanie that, as a potential future struggling artist, it isn't the best karma to piss off waiters. They have a fairly satisfying back and forth and Melanie successfully holds her place at the table. When she gets back to Boo, she tells her that she received the "package" and that it's fine. Boo says that she's never having children and Melanie tells her that she's preaching to the choir. Jeff brings water with no ice or straws (and she'd better not think of asking for straws) and asks why she's not in ballet class. Isn't that what she does? She sighs and says that things really aren't happening right now
Fanny is walking through the dance studio which is filled with props and stuff. She's searching for a box labeled "teapots." Truly is following behind her trying to convince her that they should travel to Eastern Europe to obtain a special purple refrigerator that is only manufactured and sold in Lichtenstein. She cray. She says that the studio is really creepy like this, and it appears that nothing has been changed since the night that Michelle maced everyone at The Nutcracker. There's also a canoe in the studio. Fanny explains that a neighbor needed a place to store it. Truly says that nothing is more terrifying than a canoe. Damn if she's not correct. They are scary, aren't they? She asks Fanny when she'll open the studio again and she responds, "When it feels right." Translation: "When the restraining orders expire." Kidding. I don't know about that part.
Here we are in Henderson, Nevada at a magic show. This dude is playing with some metal rings in front of a sign that reads "You Want To See Something?" This dude is giving her all she's got. Michelle is one of his assistants and she is pretty amazing, though she looks supremely unhappy. Later, she's at Talia's place, on the couch with some wine. Talia gets home and it appears that she was out dancing at Cleopatra's Barge with Rick. Michelle alludes to Rick maybe being a contemporary of Cleopatra's but Talia still shares her fancy leftovers with her. So, did they eat after dancing? That would be weird. Weirder would be coatchecking your leftovers.
Rick's parking his car. He comes in and Michelle is a little rude to him because she thinks he's so old. That's obnoxious. He tells her that he could set her up with a friend of his, but she's not interested. He goes into Talia's bedroom and Michelle tells her that Henderson is the Rob Schneider to Las Vegas's Daniel Day-Lewis. Ouch. Talia's talking to their old boss to see if Michelle can come back to their old show. Also, she doesn't eat on her dates with Rick because she wants him to find her attractive. Oh, Talia. She suggests to Michelle that she make herself scarce the next night. Apparently, she's going to have a romantic evening with Rick. Michelle gives her a casino chip for rent and Talia tells her that things are going to get better.
