Finally, it's "Katherine and The Stripper." Robin delivers Katherine's mail and talks to Katherine like she's an idiot, so Katherine takes it she heard about her "little vacation" at the nuthouse. Robin did hear, and wonders how Katherine is. Katherine says it's been hard, what with people judging her and all. Robin says to hell with them, and then says she's looking for a room to rent if Katherine's lonely. She adds that no one judges the woman from the loony bin when there's a stripper next door. Or, you know, in the same house. Katherine laughs. And we cut ahead again to Robin moving in. Robin wants to go out and celebrate their new roomie status, but Katherine's not ready for that. Robin gets it and asks what it's like to be in a mental hospital. She says she asks because her mom used her as a punching bag when she was drunk (which is how she coped with her dad cheating on her), and Robin dreamed about having her committed. Katherine, somehow touched by the obviously made-up story (which I think we're supposed to believe, too, sadly), tells Robin how bad the mental institution is: She could take the screaming, because that meant people are alive, but she hated the blank stares. Katherine decides they do deserve a night drinking.
At the bar, Katherine wants to know what it's like to be a stripper. Robin, "If I had a dollar for every guy who slapped me on the ass just because he felt like it... Come to think of it, I do." An average-looking guy interrupts, and invites them to sit with him and his friend. Robin declines, but he shows them where he's sitting if they change their minds. Katherine, desperate for the attention of a male after Mike-Gate, wants to go, and Robin's willing to play wingman. At the table, both guys are totally obsessed with Robin, ignoring Katherine, even though Robin keeps deflecting the attention to Katherine. It's really ugly and annoying, and I hope that people don't actually do that. Robin excuses herself, and the guys say they haven't even danced yet. Robin doesn't feel like dancing, but won't speak for Katherine. One of the guys actually says OUT LOUD that they only want to dance with Robin. She asks if they're not attracted to someone who's classy, witty, not to mention breathtakingly beautiful. They say Robin's more their type, so Robin says she'll keep Katherine all to herself, then. She kisses her, and then pulls her away as the men's jaws hit the floor.
Back at Katherine's, the ladies giggle about the looks on those guys' faces. Robin thinks it was the perfect combo of "I'm so turned on" and "I'm so going home alone." Katherine says those two pigs confirmed that it's time for her to give up on men, and her dating days are over. Robin thinks maybe she should just do what she did, and explore other options. Katherine's puzzled, so Robin tries "cast a wider net," then "expand the pool," before Katherine finally gets it with "date chicks." Katherine thought the kiss was awfully convincing. Robin says she dated guys for a long time and never felt a connection, then realized, when she was around all of the confident, sexy strippers (confident? Really? That wouldn't have been my guess), that she'd been barking up the wrong tree. Katherine says she has the right tree, but is sick of barking. Robin tells her to suit herself and then asks if this is going to affect anything with them. Katherine doesn't see why it would, but we can see from her panicked face that she thinks it will.
