Luke comes up with his arms full of chips, asking, "Now, what do you think about bean dip? It's a cliché, but it's a crowd-pleaser." Joan dumps all of Luke's stuff onto the counter and says, "Let's go. We're not buying anything from here." Luke: "We aren't?" Joan: "No. Master Of The Universe here carded me." Luke complains he told her the office party story wouldn't work. As they're leaving, Liquor Store God says, "Joan? You did invite Adam?" She says, "Sure." Liquor Store God adds, "And he realizes you're inviting him?" Joan: "As in a date?" He replies, "Figure it out." Luke: "I'm sorry -- he's approving the guest list?" Isn't the real question "How does this guy know your name, and know about Adam?" I wonder who Joan will tell about God first. Usually I think it will be Adam, but sometimes I think Luke might figure it out first. Joan tells Luke, "One foot in front of the other."
Saturday night. At work, Rebecca is hanging over Kevin's shoulder and bickering with him: "It is a split infinitive!" Kevin: "It is what I wanted to say!" Rebecca: "Well, I'm all for that, but can't you say what you want without violating the English language?" Ah, young love. Kevin says he doesn't have a "big honkin' education" like she does. She tells him he's going to have to come up with something better than that. He looks at his phone, and Rebecca tells him, "She'll call back -- stay focused." Apparently he's waiting to hear from Joan. He reminds Rebecca that he's in charge of his siblings while his parents are away. Rebecca: "Do ya really care if they have a party?" Kevin considers this and says, "I'm supposed to." Rebecca takes a rather lecturesome tone: "Here's what you're in charge of: your career. That is what I am trying to give you, but if you don't want it, I can't help you!" Kevin: "Who says I don't want it?" They both suddenly kind of smirk at each other, and she warns him, "Don't...make trouble." Kevin: "Are we even talking about the article anymore?" She says they are. Kevin laughs.
