By the elevator, Mitchell is having an animated conversation with a woman who's clearly an old friend; the old friend is played by Megan Follows, a Canadian actor whose most famous role is still Anne Shirley in Kevin Sullivan's mini-series adaptations of the Anne of Green Gables books. Also, she must have a new agent, because she was on this week's episode of The X-Files, too. Anyway, the elevator doors open and Weaver steps out, right into the middle of this fond and somewhat intimate conversation. As they laugh, Weaver looks slightly jealous. Mitchell sees that it's Weaver coming off the elevator and exclaims, "Hey! We were just looking for you." Mitchell introduces Anne, and explains that she and Anne were just having coffee. Anne adds that she insisted that Mitchell bring her down: "I'm sorry, but a bunch of us were beginning to question your existence!" Weaver looks supremely unsettled, perhaps because she's just noticed that she and Anne have the same short/long haircut, and that, without realizing it, she's had lesbian hair all along. Mitchell tells Weaver, "We were all thinking about getting together for dinner tonight. You game?" Weaver demurs that she can't get off in time for dinner, but that she appreciates the invitation. Mitchell tells her that she already checked Weaver's schedule and knows that she gets off at six. Um. You checked her schedule? Codependent much? Anne (as Dr. Dave rolls up behind her) says, "Don't worry -- nobody bites." [Insert your own off-colour joke here.] Dr. Dave -- clearly not knowing or caring exactly what's going on -- asks Weaver to sign off on his chart. The elevator doors open and Mitchell and Anne get in, confirming that they'll see Weaver at 7:30. Okay, I know Anne is supposed to be a lesbian, but, dude, that was one dowdy suit she had on. The woman's thirty at the most; don't dress her like Janet Reno. Weaver inspects Dr. Dave's chart, mutters to Weaver, "Is that Legaspi's girlfriend? I heard she's gay." Weaver says that she doesn't know. Dr. Dave adds, "What I wouldn't pay to drop in on that little party, huh?" and takes off. Weaver watches him go, looking pensive. Weaver, please don't put any stock in anything Dr. Dave has to say; you certainly never have before.
