Kevin and Bear are meeting at the Quality Café (same place Will was rewarded with free pie after blowing the whistle on every big municipal muckety-muck around). I guess Bear has decided to take his nickname literally, because he's all hair, between the huge sweep of head hair and all the bushy facial hair. I think dude needs to look into a trim. Kevin whispers that he's got a date with Rebecca: "It's an actual...date." Bear whispers, "Yes, I've heard of the concept." Okay, so all of sudden Kevin's figured out who he is? Actually, the scuttlebutt around the forums is that for some reason they switched the order of some episodes and this one was originally supposed to appear before the previous one. I don't actually know what the story is, but I know that things have seemed slightly off for the last couple of episodes and if it's true that they switched them around, it was not a completely successful or transparent move. Kevin says he can't chicken out anymore: "I'm on the tarmac, tower's giving me the thumbs up..." He wants the details. Bear wants to know why they're whispering and why they're speaking in code. Kevin looks embarrassed and says, "You know why." Bear: "So you want The Gimp Eye for the Straight Guy?" Ha! Kevin asks what it's like. Bear compares it to the proverbial blind man whose other senses improve after the loss of vision: "You'll be aware of sensations you never paid much attention to before. Skin. You have 19,000 sensory cells per square inch." Kevin nods, inhales, and almost seems to shiver. Bear: "If you like her, it can still be great, but it's more about her, and taking pleasure in her pleasure." I mention to Frink that I can remember the day -- not really all that long ago -- when that sort of sentiment wouldn't be on CBS at 8:15 PM. Frink: "It's a far cry from Three's Company." Kevin nods again, uncharacteristically bereft of comic commentary. Bear: "Just give a wave to the tower, get your wheels up, and enjoy the ride." They laugh about that, but Kevin still looks anxious as he sips his coffee.
