Taub and Kumar head to Dave's house to look for environmental causes. Apparently, he made Lee stay in his gross basement, which has a desk that Kumar finds a bunch of resumes and cover letters on. They're not all from the time that Dave went on his fake business trip, though -- as Kumar notes, he's been coming here for a while. Molly and Lee appear behind them and Lee tells her that the roofing business wasn't going well. He didn't tell her because he didn't want her to worry. Well, at least she isn't worrying about business right now. Also, Poor Lee really is poor. He's Poor Poor Lee. Kumar finds a timecard from a factory Lee was doing some temp work at as a janitor, and we all get to go there. While Lee sweeps, Taub and Kumar exposit that the factory makes rechargeable batteries. Kumar finds cadmium filings on the ground, and Taub says that Lee could have breathed them in while sweeping and given himself heavy metal poisoning. That factory is going to have a lot to answer for to OSHA if that's the case.
Taub tells Lee that they're treating him for heavy metal poisoning and if they're right, he'll be moving again within a few days. Except not really, since we all know he's wrong. Taub informs Lee that someone will be wetting down his eyes and keeping him company while he waits, and while Lee complains that his eyes feel dry (warning warning), Taub sincerely thanks him for thinking up, as if Lee only did that to save Taub's job.
It's Foreman's turn to keep Lee company. But since Foreman is super-boring, he just drones on and on about himself. He bought his first girlfriend a silver necklace that he saved for for six months, only for her to hate it. Lee is not amused, and wishes more than ever for the ability to either die or walk away. When Foreman admits that the only girl he's bought jewelry for since is Hadley, though, his story gets a little bit more interesting. To Lee, that is. Not to me. Unless the jewelry he gave her is a poison ring that will kill her by next week. Then I'll love Foreman forever. Foreman sighs that Hadley obviously didn't like the bracelet he got her since she hasn't been wearing it. Ha ha! Foreman's taste in jewelry sucks. Or maybe he just sucks at observation, since Lee noticed Hadley wearing a diamond bracelet the other day. So he got her a tennis bracelet? What, did he walk into Kay's and pick the first thing he saw? How thoughtful. Foreman goes off on Hadley for not liking his bracelet but not being able to tell him so to his face. I think it's more a matter of being polite than being a coward. He says he wishes people would just tell him the truth about his shitty taste. Okay, I will: stop wearing so much pink.
