Blurry fade into Lauren lying motionless on a hospital bed. David walks in with flowers. He teases her about this being a stunt to identify with what her patients go through. Man, David is so sweet to Lauren. I wish someone would treat me like that after finding me cracked out on a hotel room floor dressed like I'm selling my flesh. Lauren starts lying about simply passing out from after hours drinks with her colleagues, but David knows better. He asks what really happened. And this is pretty awesome: Lauren is really ashamed and delivers this line like a child who doesn't want to disappoint -- "Promise not to get mad at me." David promises and Lauren's demeanor shifts to blunt confession. "I went to meet a guy." David sits up straight. She continues on about going to meet him at the hotel and she doesn't take any precautions to make this sound good to David for a few statements before she clarifies she intended to tell the guy she couldn't see him anymore. That's when he drugged her, she says, and took off because he freaked out about her reaction. David wants to know who this guy is. A nurse walks in and interrupts because Lauren needs some tests run. They wheel out her hospital bed and David sneaks a peek at Lauren's phone to snag the guy's phone number.
STILL WATERY TITLE CARD
Ella walks into The Complex Courtyard looking a bit disheveled. She stops to take off her sunglasses to verify she's really seeing Amanda moving into her penthouse apartment. This also reveals smudged eye make-up as if she's been crying following Jonah's being non-committal. Nice subtle detail. Elle tries to sneak past the movers without Amanda noticing her, but to no avail. Amanda wants to talk about her party, but not before taking one look at Ella to comment she'll need to take her mind off her one-night stand first. Ella denies it being a one-night stand. "Well, you keep telling yourself that," Amanda coldly replies. Turns out Amanda is unhappy with the caterers they have hired (formerly Gwen Stefani's caterers) and has fired them. Ella needs to find someone to provide food for Amanda's party on short notice. Gee, I wonder who she'll turn to. Amanda insists she better get someone good because Ben has hinted at this being a special night. Also, she wants all of The Complex tenants to be in attendance. Ella's not sure that's a possibility, but, you know, Amanda wants it so. You can do it, Elle!
