The "Doctor of the Year" award is presented to Dr. Jerome, and just as he begins to speak, Gay Scott and a bunch of singers and dancers burst out of a back room and are doing the worst song-and-dance routine since Rob Lowe danced with Cinderella at the Oscars so many years ago. Someone comes out and puts the sombrero on Jerome's head, and he's trying to look like he's taking it all in stride, but he shoots a glance at Mike that just SCREAMS "you're fired". Mike says to Nancy, "I'm a dead man. But it was so...so worth it." Then he begins to slowly applaud with the rest of the audience as Jerome seethes.
Back at Vega$ Night, Ed's bowling away while Carol sits looking like a prostitute in a roomful of sailors on leave. She wants a full plate of Edward J. Stevens meat and wants it NOW! Unfortunately, Ed would rather bowl. Carol says she's going to leave, and Ed says she can't leave, by God...it's Vega$ Night. Carol says she has a headache, has to get up early, blah blah blah...the same excuses Uncle Bob heard on every date until he was 29 years old. Ed talks her into going for a walk, and she agrees to that because she still needs a little nookie.
As they walk, Ed says, "'Tis a beautiful night." Carol says, "'Tis indeed," and Ed mentions that he's glad she picked up on the "Tis" thing. Ed starts babbling about how Pluto is not a planet...rather, it's a comet. He looks around and says, "Remember the first time we were here?" and Carol does. It's where they shared their first and only kiss. Maybe they had another kiss. I don't rightly remember right now. Ed calls it "The Kiss That Made A Man Move Home And Buy A Bowling Alley." They move closer as they talk...faces inches from each other...the setting is perfect...could it...can it...will it...???
