At Bennet's apartment, he raises a toast to the first Thanksgiving he's ever hosted -- and to Lauren, because without her they'd be eating Japanese take-out right now. Lauren laughs, then asks Sandra how she and Doug met. Doug interjects, "May I?" and tells everyone it was love at first sight... for Mr. Muggles and Miss Lovegood. Okay, Doug is a huge tool, but a wonderful character. This show needed a little humor. Claire is horrified as Doug recounts how they met at the groomer, then calls her mom "Sandy," is even more horrified when her mother calls Doug "Dougy," then he calls himself "legume-intolerant" (which means allergic). Sandra asks how Lauren and HRG met, and he says they used to work together at Primatech and recently reconnected. Lauren says it was this morning in the frozen food aisle, which she trolls for eligible men. I am somehow liking her in this role, despite hating the added-on backstory last time. Sandra asks if they worked at the paper company or "that other thing," and Lauren's surprised she knows about that other thing. Sandra condescendingly says, "Yes, dear. A memory can only be erased so many times." Doug looks confused, but not enough to ask anything about it. Sandra asks if they worked closely, and if she's stumbling onto something she's not supposed to remember. HRG says she's not stumbling onto anything, and they should all just enjoy their dinner.
