Back at the alley, Molly comes walking in, all dolled up like a four-year-old who found Mama's makeup bag. Ed asks her, "What's going down" (which he pulled out of his witty repartee book), and she says she thinks she lost her pocket comb at the bowling alley. Which is the flimsiest excuse ever in the history of mankind. Jim the bowling-pin guy happens to be there, drilling holes in bowling balls. Molly says, "Here goes nothing," and walks over to Jim. She asks what he's doing, and he tells her. She asks whether she can give it a try, and he shows her how to do it by gently pulling the lever down. She yanks the lever down on the ball and it splits in two. She feels horrible as Jim explains it was a $200 ball she just destroyed, reminding her that the key word in the action was indeed "gently." Molly's about to cry as she admits she didn't know what she could have done to have the ball crack like that. Jim chuckles and tells her that the ball was already cracked. That wiseguy! He's the type of wiseguy you just want to playfully punch in the nuts. Repeatedly. He points out to her that the life of a bowling-ball salesman is not that glamorous, so he gets his kicks where he can.
George/Rick shows up, wanting to sign the final forms. Ed's taken aback at first, because he doesn't know who the hell this guy is. G 'n' R has dyed his hair black, shaved off his beard, and is dressed like Uncle Bob going to a funeral. Basically, he's a whole new guy. Carol says that it's none of her business, but this is a pretty drastic deal here: what gives? G 'n' R agrees that it's none of her goddamned business, but offers her the reason that life's too short to be someone you don't want to be. Ed tells G 'n' R to wait in his office, and he'll get the papers. Carol asks Ed whether it ever occured to him that G 'n' R is a fugitive. Ed says, "What?" and Carol says she thinks he's on the run from John Law. Ed asks if that's Jude Law's brother. Carol smacks Ed in the head, and Ed once again has to take physical abuse from the ladies, fighting the demons inside of him to respond with the Noogie from Hell. Ed thinks G 'n' R's on to something.
Mike goes in to see Dr. Jerome. Jerome is all like, "Is there something you want to discuss?" Mike's all like not saying anything because he's trying to decide how to word his resignation. Finally, he's all like, "Well, I'm ordering Chinese for lunch," and Jerome's all like, "I'll take two egg rolls, Hunan chicken, a side of shrimp fried rice, and plenty of duck sauce. Don't let 'em play games with the duck sauce." And then Mike's all like bummed that he didn't quit. And I'm all like a bad episode of Felicity.
