Tres Equis Cantina: Felix, holding the baseball Trevor nicked from MNick, notes that his dad proposed to his mom at a Yankees game, and wants to know how much Trevor will take in exchange for the ball. I should mention that Felix, who Trevor says lives "like a monk," is (along with his sister Lita) throwing an anniversary party for his parents' 40th. Felix says he's saving himself for someone special, and an attractive blonde waves her hand, and calls out from her table, "Helloooooooo. Can I get a drink?" Trevor goes to take her order while cracking that normally their "lovely yet vicious and vindictive cocktail waitress handles table service." The blonde says, "And here I thought I was special," which Trevor picks up on, because it is just the very word Felix used, so you can write most of this yourself. Right? Whatever. The blonde, whom we'll find out is named Mira, isn't just special. She's lovely, talented and some kind of wonderful. Yep, that's spunky Mary Stuart Masterson, all grown up and still lovely (although I can't decide if she's had some work done on her face, or would just benefit from a few cheeseburgers; I think it's the former, because the neck don't lie, yo). Trevor, going back to his "no thinking, just matching" approach, feels the need to match Mira with Felix,so he sends him over to her table under the pretense that she asked to see the owner. He's got this whole thing about diving in.
MNick enters and tells Trevor he wants his baseball back, which is why Trevor stole it in the first place, but he's not above giving MNick a little grief. "Uh, it's Thurman Munson's baseball. He wrote his name on it." And then cops to the fact that he wanted to see MNick again, because he noticed shots of Riley serve as the screen saver on his computer. MNick says he doesn't meet that many sexy social workers in his line of work. Trevor tries to up MNick's obvious interest in Riley, but MNick's a hard sell. "Look, I make my living chronicling the disintegration of happily ever after. Monogamy is futile. Love never lasts, and marriage is an archaic institution, doomed to failure." I so want to set him up with the pilot version of Veronica Mars right now, I can't stand it. MNick starts to leave, but Trevor asks if he's "opposed to doing a girl a favor."
