At work, Mia sees Clive and Grant talking. She stops them before they can say anything dangerous, and calls Clive into her office to tell him she doesn't want to fire Grant. Clive says that he'll fire Grant instead; Grant is "phoning it in" and Mia knows it. He thought she knew that decisions at that level were tough.
That night, Zoë is working; she tells some Guy Friday that she needs to see her assistant, Katherine, because she's late for dinner. He tells her that Katherine left for the day. Zoë tells the person on the phone she'll do one more hour of work.
Eric is fielding the late call from Zoë as he walks into the restaurant to meet Bitchy Mommy. I'm not kidding -- no one has said her name. He tells her that Zoë is late, and she says that her husband "Strauss" got stuck in Boston. "Strauss." That's funny. They can't even name her, but they give her husband the most imaginative name on the show. Anyway, Eric proposes that they do dinner another night, but Bitchy Mommy says that they should just eat, as long as they're there. Then, a hostess says that their table is ready. Without their complete party? I think not. But, they sit.
Zoë is scrambling to leave the office, but there's no paper in the printer. Zach runs around to help her, reminding her not to forget her purse. I like this Zach -- he has the sad, soul-bruised look of an office urchin that I find very familiar. I hope we see more of him.
Back at the restaurant, Bitchy Mommy is getting super-cozy with Eric. She complains a little about dinner without the spouse, telling him that the only safe affair is between two people who don't want to end their marriages. She says that her offer is good at any time. Then, she reaches across the table and asks if she was wrong to say something. Zoë arrives and sees the touching. She bounds up to the table and sits with a smile.
Juliet is decked out in a pretty pink dress to meet Bobby at a bar. He's looking for the rest of the reunion, but says he's only interested in seeing her. She tells him that no one else will be there. They're flirting pretty hardcore.
Back at dinner! Bitchy Mommy says that her daughter loves malls. Their food arrives, and Zoë's ordered steak, which she imagines will annoy veggie Bitchy Mommy. She tells Zoë that she picked up her daughter at their house (and Eric didn't tell her), adding that she loves their kitchen and would like Eric to redesign hers, because most architects design from "here"(points at head) while Eric designs from "here"(points at heart). Yes, that happened. She says that Architectural Digest wants to run a feature on the renovation of her kitchen; that's enough for Eric. He's in. Zoë doesn't look happy.
