After Trevor leaves, Elena follows Meghan into the kitchen, asking why she invited Trevor. Meghan says that she thought Elena liked him. Elena says that she does, and then confesses that she doesn't know if he's smart enough, and asks if that's horrible. Meghan, of course, doesn't think that's horrible, because "the only thing worse than dating a dumb guy is dating a dumb guy who doesn't brush his teeth." Meghan suggests that Elena give Trevor a test that she has devised to figure out if he's smart enough to date. Elena is offended, which means of course that she's going to do it.
It must be Thanksgiving Day now, because the Macy's parade is on the television in the hospital. Ben and Lauren walk out of Jack Tripper's room, both gushing over how much better Jack is doing. Ben looks really happy for the first time in many episodes. Ben very sincerely tells Lauren that he wants to thank her for being there, because it makes it easier. Lauren says that it helps her too. Ben asks if Lauren wants to go to the cafeteria and grab some food. Lauren protests that she wants a real Thanksgiving dinner, and talks about how her family has a dinner, and invites the whole neighborhood. So why isn't she there? I mean, is being away from Jack for one day going to kill her? Ben says that he was invited to a dinner, but he's not going because "it's going to be kind of weird." Lauren thinks that they should go, and promises not to embarrass him. Ben confesses that it's going to be at his ex-girlfriend's place. Lauren understands why he doesn't want to go, but she looks disappointed. Ben says that they should just go, and they take off.
