L.A., L.A., A Hell Of A Town!

Taye is examining Mr. Flaccid, palpating his adenoids. (Do you like that? I think I just made those words up.) Taye asks where Ms. Horny is, and Mr. Flaccid starts sobbing. It turns out that Ms. Horny didn't come home last night, and Mr. Flaccid assumes she was out getting her swerve on. Taye tries to comfort him, and then Ms. Horny rushes into the room. She tells Mr. Flaccid that she had the opportunity to cheat, but she passed it up: "I passed up being with someone who actually wants to be with me because I am stuck with you!" I love these Hallmark moments. Mr. Flaccid starts to cry and cry, and Ms. Horny disgustedly leaves the room. Mr. Flaccid: "Oh, she's starting to hate me." I know I am. And then he grabs Taye in an enormous hug and asks, "What am I going to do if Little [Mr. Flaccid] can't perform?" Taye: "Okay. Don't talk about your penis while you hug another man." Is that another lesson he learned in kindergarten?

Mark slowly walks up to Derek and asks him why Addison would go to L.A. Without much interest in his voice, Derek notes that Francie and Taye are there. He asks if Mark is okay, and Mark tells him about the no-sex bet and how he and Addison were going to make a go of it as a couple. But then it fell apart when Addison slept with someone else. Derek can't help but see the irony in this situation. He also can't help but laugh at Mark, which is a little bit assy of him, but I'll allow it. Mark confesses to Derek that he claimed to have slept with someone else so that Addison would be let off the hook, because he wouldn't want to be with her if she really didn't want to be with him. He tells Derek that he was just wondering if Derek had any idea what was in L.A., and he walks away. I never thought I would see Mark in a conversation with someone over the age of 12 in which he was the more mature person.

Addison sticks her head into Francie's office to tell her that she's finally going to the beach. Francie tells her to come in, because her test results came back in. Addie's happy to hear it, because she's picked a donor. And then Francie delivers some medical mumbo-jumbo that basically means that Addison can't have a baby. I knew it was the Francinator! Oh, and the euphemism for sterile is "no fertility potential." Addison has a bit of a laughing/crying breakdown. She thinks this news just goes along with everything else that's crappy in her life: "I have the great guy, I don't have a baby because I'm focusing on my career. Then I have the other guy, I don't have his baby because he's not the great guy. And now I don't have the great guy or the other guy and I'm finally ready to have a baby, and I can't. That is so exactly what my life is." Francie tells Addison that there are other options, but Addison is totally dismissive. I get that she's in shock, but if they continue this "wanting to have a baby" plotline in either show, she'd better consider adoption. Francie says some comforting words, and Addison responds, "I just didn't realize I was out of time. That's all." Addison leaves, telling Francie that she'll see her at home.
