Adam's in his maintenance uniform, with his hair oddly slicked back (let's not have any more of that), vacuuming a very nice hotel room, when Joan appears at the door, dressed in a what looks like a very dark blue and green plaid dress with slightly puffed cap sleeves, a close-fitting bodice, and a slightly full skirt. She looks very pretty and feminine and natural -- and altogether a little too young and unsure. Her hair is long and straight and she's only wearing a smidge of makeup. The light and the colours in the room are very warm and peachy and apricot-y and golden. Adam stops the vacuum cleaner and asks, "Jane, what are you doing here?" Frink: "'I'm living out my fantasy of making it with the chamberman.'" She looks apprehensive, and says nothing as she takes a step into the room and shuts the door behind her. No doubt Adam is as puzzled as ever. Hell, I'm puzzled: she's planning to do this with him -- while he's at work? Hello? He's a high school kid with a janitorial job at some swank hotel -- a position he's held for a week or two, from the sound of things -- and this is the time and place she decides to spring the big moment on him? I don't even know what to say. It's a little flaky, even for Joan. I mean, it would be one thing if they were to sneak into the hotel when he's off-duty. But he's working! His supervisor could come around any minute. If he worked at some fast food place, would she try to nail him at the drive-in window?
