We open on Ray leading detention. By "leading," I mean writing in giant letters on the chalkboard (those still exist), "Where did I go wrong?" He starts lecturing the detention crew, when Damon walks in with another guy. They both sign in, and sit down. Ray calls Damon into the hall, where he asks him what he did to get detention. Damon plays dumb, saying he didn't do anything. Hal (or Pal? Powell?) called Mrs. Butchik "Mrs. Butt Cheeks," but he didn't do anything. He is just here to hang out with his friend. Ray assumes Damon would only do this for someone he likes as more than a friend, so Damon asks if he's homophobic. Then he adds that Powell doesn't like labels and neither does he. Ray VO's that he and Damon used to tell each other everything, so this really isn't about him being homophobic. He even admits George Clooney's handsome.
Tanya calls Horny Patty from last week (while they're both at work) to find out how it went with the Happiness Consultant. Patty tells Tanya she's working and doesn't want to talk about it. She tells Tanya to let it die and hangs up. Tanya clearly doesn't let it die, though, because she's hounding Patty about it in the breakroom later, asking why Patty isn't happy if the sex was so great. Patty asks Tanya if she's ever done cocaine. Tanya sighs, "No, uh, I tried peyote a couple times." Patty explains that having sex with Ray is like coke: a big awesome rush, but too expensive, so when you come down off that high, you feel even worse than before and now you want to kill yourself. Tanya asks what would make Patty interested in being a repeat customer, and Patty says maybe if he were like crack, "you know, cheap, same high, half the price."
Tanya's grilling a sandwich for Ray as he confides to her that "I think ... my kid's a gay." Tanya tells him that's great and not to worry, because lots of kids experiment with their sexuality. She starts to talk about her past thing with a woman, but Ray tells her he's not interested in her lesbian past, since this is a business meeting. Dude, Ray, you started it. Tanya's willing to move on to business, though, and she tells him they might need to lower their prices. He says she's the one who said they'd be able to clear two grand a night. She blames the economy, but then her phone rings. She freaks out and tells Ray to hang on, because it's Pierce. She talks to Pierce, who's in Cuba. He tells her he misses her, it's a long story, he'll be back in a few days. He tells her he's running out of minutes, but he loves her. Ray tells Tanya she spends all her time with her new boyfriend while their business is falling apart. Tanya tells him she knows he's upset about Damon's homosexual tendencies. Ray reminds her he promised his kids they could move back in, and his house isn't going to fix itself. He wonders who he has to fuck around here to get his kids back. Only he means it literally. Tanya tells him she's trying. Then she says it doesn't sound right to say "my kid's a gay," and he should just say "my kid's gay."
Damon and Darby are climbing a rock wall, talking about Damon's sex life with his new no-label friend. Or actually his lack of a sex life, since he hasn't had sex with him yet. Darby tells him how easy guys are to please, but then Jessica cheers at them loudly from across the room. She explains to Ronnie, who's reading what appears to be a flier or menu, that she gives them 10 bucks when they reach the top, but she gave up Pilates to pay for it. This leads to Ronnie questioning her about her and her mother going through his stuff. She says it was a moment of weakness, but she doesn't care about the money. Ronnie wonders if she cares about Ray, but she insists she doesn't. She loves Ronnie. This makes him so happy that he sends her to a fancy store that she loves to shop at a sale. He gives her his credit card and tells her to buy something and be happy.
At work, Tanya's telling another lady about this amazing new service a friend of hers runs. The lady's not sure about it, even when Tanya says it made her feel empowered, so Tanya plays the Patty card, and says she knows she felt empowered too. It seems to make the woman give it a second thought. Then Tanya's telling someone else that it's progressive and "in no way dirty. Unless you like dirty." Outside she's telling someone else that Patty said it's like coke. This woman actually walks away while Tanya's talking.
Then Tanya's meeting with Lenore, who's sharing treats with her dog at a café bar. Lenore says her dog's name is Horny Patty, and she snottily explains that she ran into Horny Patty, who told her that Tanya used Lenore's name to hawk her escort service, so now Tanya owes her one. Lenore asks how business is, and Tanya says it's brisk. Lenore says she could use a little Ray herself. When Tanya says she means Randall, Lenore says that, no, she had his wallet, and she knows his name is Ray. Tanya tries to say his dance card is full, so Lenore suggests another guy, but she actually knows that Ray's Tanya's only guy. She tells Tanya she's smart to do one thing and do it well. Lenore would like to see him tonight. Tanya says he'll never go for it, since Lenore stole his wallet and underwear last time, but Lenore leaves her cash upfront.
And then we have a Ray VO saying, "Lenore. Again. Tanya should have never sent me there." Uh-oh. They're in a store that Lenore says a friend of hers owns, and she gives Ray a new suit to replace his "crap suit." He puts it on as she asks him how things are going with Tanya, who she says is "funny" but "means well." Totally condescending. While he's changing, Lenore shows him two similar pairs of high heels and tells him one pair is worth $79.99 and the other is worth $1,250. He can't believe it, but she explains it's branding and women buy the pricey ones because it means they're worth something, too. She tells Ray he should be raising his price, not lowering it, which is something Tanya will never understand. He finishes suiting up and she tells him it's hot.
On a couch in the store (which apparently sells everything), they're getting ready for sex when she tells him he needs to "diversify," since "not all women can come from just dick alone." He tells her it's going to cost extra, so she gives him a couple hundred dollars more. They make boring small talk and then he goes down on her. It's a pretty lengthy and graphic scene (we definitely get to see more of her than we ever get with all of the Ray teaser scenes), and Lenore makes a sales pitch the whole time, telling him he can do better than Tanya. He comes up for air to say Tanya's his friend and partner, but she's not paying to argue, so he gets back to it while she flops around having an orgasm and making him a sales pitch, all, "You're a major league guy playing in the minors." I'm not sure it's the most effective sales tactic on a guy, but I guess we'll see.
Patty throws Tanya against a wall in the bathroom at work, and tells her to stop talking about her to everyone. Just because she talked her into paying for sex doesn't give her the right to talk about her. She'll kick Tanya's ass sideways if she ever talks to her or about her again. She storms out, and another woman comes out of a stall and whispers "Patty paid for sex?" Tanya's all, "Linda," as she sees her next target.
At that sale of happiness Ronnie sent her to, Jessica's shopping when Lenore accosts her for never calling her after that time she offended her in the nail salon. Lenore talks Jessica out of buying the sale stuff because she can get her the same discount on the good stuff. Lenore explains she's a "lifestylist," a combo life coach and stylist. She helps people maximize their personal style, through wardrobe, fitness, etc. She asks Jessica if she's a size 2, but Jessica says she's a 4 now. Oh, boo-hoo. But Lenore sells her on how great colonics are while also forcing expensive dresses on her.
As Jessica's in the dressing room, Lenore yells to ask her whether she can cum from just cock or if she needs a little tongue to get off. Jessica doesn't want t
