Diner. Jane is picking at her burger when Liza enthuses that when Marin moves back to New York, they can room together. Marin replies that if she moves back to New York, she'll be living alone. Jane asks when her moving back became an "if" proposition. Marin explains that she thought that coming back to New York meant she was coming home, but now she doesn't know what home is. Liza takes the literal meaning, reminding Marin that she was born in New York (which I guess means their parents have moved to Florida or something, since they're nowhere in sight?), but Marin thinks that "home" is the place that makes one feel most like oneself. Neither Jane nor Liza has an answer for that. Marin complains that her stomach hurts. Jane chalks that up to the terrible food, but we're obviously supposed to remember what a stomach ache means for Marin as she says that Elmo made her feel happy and accepted. Liza intuits that Marin misses Jack, but Marin says that she misses Elmo: "Things were quieter there. Slower. I could think. I don't know if I'm ready for the deadlines of a book right now." Jane, a bit harshly, says that publishers won't wait for her forever, and Marin whines back, "How am I supposed to write a new chapter if I don't know what my next chapter is going to be?" Jane doesn't really seem to care much whether Marin's dumb memoir is based on true events, but anyway, she doesn't say anything as Liza suggests that they write a pro/con list for each of Elmo and New York. Marin thinks that's a great idea, and wants to start with Elmo. Here's a con: you apparently have to make your own Jell-O.
