Later, a bottle is spinning. It points to Jerome, and Marin exposits that this is his last do-over, and tries to wind up the game. Liza protests that Marin hasn't been in the closet yet. "But you have!" Marin tells her. "Twice!" They bicker, and then Ben takes a spin. Of course, it lands on Sara, and of course, Theresa reacts like she just took a shot of cod liver oil. As Ben and Sara head for the closet, Theresa murmurs to Marin that she's leaving. Marin tells her she'll miss the cake, but even the prospect of delicious dessert can't keep her.
Elsewhere, Celia watches Patrick, sitting despondently at the bar. She breathlessly asks Buzz to do her a favour, but he curtly informs her that he won't be spending any time in Heaven with her. She wants him to keep Patrick company, be nice to him: "He needs someone right now, and it's not me." I guess that's the lesson Celia's learned in this episode.
At the bar, Buzz opens by saying that he'd buy Patrick a beer, but the bartender's in the closet. Patrick manages one dry chuckle. Buzz asks how he's doing, and Patrick recaps, "I never knew my father, and I don't want to have anything to do with my mother. Doing super." Well, that is where a lot of people eventually end up as adults, Apron Strings, so don't think it makes you special. Buzz offers to fly Patrick over the crash site, if that wouldn't make him feel even worse. "Do you think things could get any harder?" mumbles Patrick. Buzz says he'll pick Patrick up at noon, and gives him a paternal shoulder-bump to seal it. Ben and Sara emerge from the closet, to cheers, and then it's Marin's turn to spin, and of course it lands on Jack, who's like six feet away from the table, not even playing. Jack tries to beg off, but Marin makes a big show of beckoning him flirtatiously, and he relents. As we all knew he would, because we've seen TV before.
After the commercials, Jack and Marin are in the closet. Either James Tupper is really short, or Anne Heche is standing on a box, because she's wee, and they're practically eye to eye. Anyway, Jack's like, "Are we supposed to kiss?" Marin hisses that she doesn't want to kiss him -- she "just needed to talk to someone." Jack shrugs that it's her party, and she can talk to whomever she wants, but she snaps (all together now!), "No, it's not my party! I wouldn't be playing a kissing game at my party! And I've become this person that I always become around my sister -- this person I don't even like! And I made a resolution!" And then we see that, of course, she didn't just want to talk to "someone," as she grabs Jack by the shoulders and demands to know "what the hell happened last night." Jack, amused, says that nothing happened: "We went to dinner; she met some other guy." And then Jack went home, and we know what happened then. He adds, "Listen, no offense, but Liza -- she isn't really my type." Aw, it's so cute he thinks she'd take offense to that, which is pretty much what Marin says when she laughs a little in relief and tells him, "Thank you for saying that!" She complains that everyone always thinks Liza's more fun than Marin. As soon as she's uttered the words, she drops her head, saying she knows she sounds like a baby. "Old Baby," snickers Jack. Marin gives him that one, but whines that she thought, in Elmo, people would come to her party to see her. The party she didn't want to have, mind you. Jack says that Liza came to see Marin, and spent most of their dinner together saying how much she missed having Marin in New York. Marin is shocked to hear this, and rhetorically asks why family is so complicated. Jack's like, "Um, I think my family story trumps any you might have up your sleeve." They can hear a "Marin! Marin!" chant through the door, which Marin says is her "chocolate chocolate cake." She musses her hair, saying that they should make it look like they made out, and it turns out Jack's down with that plan, as he leans in and kisses her softly. They come apart, and Jack grins that he just wanted it to look convincing. She cracks that he could mess her hair up a little, and he responds by unmoussing his own into a hilarious half-Krusty. Before she can open the door, Jack whispers, "Happy birthday, Coach." Marin blinks, and then they come out...
