Mike is up on a ladder, cleaning out his gutter, when Susan walks up. She reminds him that her mother's wedding is in a few days, and that she knows he sent back the little card saying he "preferred beef." (Wait a minute, Mike is GAY?) Susan does some babbling about how she switched Mike's preference to fish, having tasted the beef herself, blah blah blah. Mike interrupts her by throwing down a wet plop of gutter trash, which makes Susan jump back, and then he tells Susan to give her mother his apologies, since he won't be attending the wedding. And I'm confused: did Mike RSVP for the wedding before he and Susan broke up? If so, wouldn't he just be Susan's "plus one"? Does the boyfriend of the matron of honor really have to send in his own RSVP card? (Clearly I'm hypernitpicking here...does anyone have a paper bag I can breathe into?) ["Also, I'm confused. Mike solved the Deirdre mystery, and he hates Susan, so why doesn't he move away?" -- Wing Chun] Susan tells Mike that she hopes his bowing out from the wedding isn't just because of their breakup. Does Susan really think Mike's feeling deprived of his chance to go to crazy Sophie's wedding? Susan adds that it "wouldn't have to be weird" for them to be together at a wedding. Mike shoots her a look and says, "It'd be weird." Susan pretends to see what he's talking about, and he dumps another load of gutter mess down at her feet.
