"Chuck? Chuck, hey. I'm in trouble. Look, I think I can still make it, but please go to Hunter, try to keep the doors open until I get there..."
When Vanessa arrives at work, Nate's sitting on the bench outside, and they laugh. "Last night was strange, but very fun. Still, didn't we just say goodbye like five hours ago?" He explains he's there to take her somewhere, and she does a total Vanessa double-take: "I'm going somewhere: to work." He tells her to get a sub and she protests that she can't just run off when he shows up. "I'm not asking you to. This is a one-time offer, and there's a clock ticking." He opens the towncar door, and makes No. 114 in a series of adorable faces created specifically for this episode. "Fine," she says, and gets in, admitting that she's intrigued.
It's a quiet breakfast Chez Humphrey this lovely Saturday morning. Make that silent. Rufus is wearing an embarrassing band-collar shirt, working up the courage to speak to Jenny, who's sitting on his right playing with her eggs. "...You wish your brother good luck today?" She barks an answer and sits sullenly, then asks to be excused. "No, you may not. And we are not gonna walk around this house all day and not talk to each other." So if you want Jenny to speak, she'll speak. "You've completely and entirely prejudged the Upper East Side," is the first thing out of her mouth, and Rufus regrets asking her to speak, immediately. "Dad, I learned my lesson on my birthday. Asher's not like those girls. He's different. He's nice and polite and he likes animals. Please let me go today?" He's grossed out that she didn't even cancel, assuming he'd change his mind if she played him right. He's more angry because he knows that she can, and that he didn't see it coming. Dadding is hard! He throws down his fork in a tres Humphrey manner, and hands her the phone.
