Later, at a coffee shop, Mia looks around for an Asian guy and finds Jason. He's a total fox, but looks like he's twenty-five, tops. His haircut was like $150. And, he's a model, not a doctor. Not that doctors can't be hot (my friend Jodi's husband, I'm looking at you), but there's still a "model vs. hot doctor" gap. When Mia greets him, Jason says that he took the liberty of ordering a choice of items for her -- double cappuccino, espresso, or green iced tea. Wow, he's trying hard. She compliments his efficiency. Her first question for him is how often his mother sets him up like this. Once a day, he says, and they giggle. Mia informs Jason that she kept this date as a way to make her mother agree not to set her up with anyone for a year. Dude, your multiple coffee purchases now seem to have been made in vain. Mia makes conversation by asking Jason about being a doctor, and he tells her that he is the Chief of Neurosurgery and Professor of New Neurotherapies at NYU. That's just totally not true. Even if he were this unbelievably good-looking and model-groomed doctor, there's just no way. But, carry on. Mia is impressed and amused. She says that you don't really meet brain surgeons unless there is something going wrong inside of your head, other than hearing the voices of your boss and mother. Blah. Jason asks Mia if he should crack open her head and take a look. Maybe you do an x-ray or something less invasive first? These doctors are just butchers these days. Mia says that's more of a second-date thing for her. Jason asks Mia about her job. While she's telling him, his cell phone rings. He has to take it. Hers rings too, and they have dueling conversations. Hers is apparently from Wendy, asking about money for Katie's apology gift. Mia won't authorize $25,000, and says that they should send a "nice note." Jason's conversation is about somebody's cancer treatment. Finally, she exclaims, "They're just nipples!" That apparently signals the end of both calls, because both of them hang up without saying goodbye. Mia says, "Well, I put that fire out." Goo-goo eyes.
