Jessica's mother asks Jessica if she still has to have sex with Ronnie, even though he no longer has money. She says that she likes having sex with her husband. She replies that Ronnie is peaceful right now and, if he'd really lost his money, he'd be stabbing himself in the heart. She says that at least Ray was honest. Darby comes in and says that Doris the dog smells. They run outside and Doris is lying, catatonic, on the ground.
Ray and Jemma are frolicking on the beach. They park on their picnic spread. Jemma says that he's perfect, but Ray says that sometimes his feet smell. Not romantic. However, Jemma says that she might fall in love with Ray. He says that's "nice." The mood is killed. Jemma steps away to make a phone call. Ray GETS phone call. It's Tanya. She tells him to tell Jemma that he's supposed to say that he loves her, too. He's incredulous but Tanya tells him this is necessary if he wants to get his kids a car. Jemma comes back and he tries to tell her that he loves her, but it's super flat. She tells him that she doesn't believe him, so he tells her that he thinks this is crazy. He's so stupid. He says that she's ruining a perfectly good moment with artificial shit. What does she think he is, a dancing monkey? She packs her picnic silently and leaves.
At the vet, the doctor explains that Doris could be saved, but it will take a lot of medication and surgery. Ronnie insists that they put her to sleep. Jessica says that the dog is helping her bond with the kids, and Ronnie says that they will do the right thing -- putting the dog to sleep.
Ray is teaching his history class when Tanya knocks on the classroom door. He goes outside and asks her what she's doing there. She tells him to not be paranoid and reminds him that she used to teach poetry there. She gives him the money from Jemma. She paid in full. She mournfully thinks of how much money they would have made if she were a regular and Ray asks if she thinks he should call Jemma. She says that she thinks Jemma may just be impossible to please.
Floyd is at Tanya's place retrieving a CD that he loaned her. She says cheerily that she thinks it will really help her leadership skills. Then, he asks if she has the handout he gave her. She does, but she thought he wanted her to keep that. He did, but now he wants it. Uncomfy. She asks him if everything is OK and he says he's fine. She asks him if he would like to sit and have some tea. He sits, no tea. He says that he thinks it's time for "the talk" and she's not sure what he means. He doesn't want her to get her expectations up--he's a bachelor. She's mortified and tells him that she only went out with him was to be nice, because it was her New Years' Resolution. He blurts that he's not attracted to her, and she screams that she's not attracted to him, either: "You're 100 years old!" He says that he's NOT saying that she's an "ugly woman," just that she's not his type. Ew. She flips him off and tells him to fuck off, and he replies, "This is not productive." He flees her apartment as she cries, "A creepy motivational speaker."
