In her truck, Marin asks Lynn whether she needs anything -- air, music. Lynn asks Marin just to keep talking to her. And then, in the silence that follows (the first time Marin's ever been at a loss for words -- certainly the first time she's declined to talk when directly invited to), Lynn says that Jack doesn't know about the baby. "Oh my God," babbles Marin, but Lynn adds that it's not his baby. Marin smiles a tiny bit in relief as Lynn goes on to say that all Jack wanted was for her to settle down in Elmo and have his babies, and now she's moving to Vancouver to have someone else's: "It's ironic, right?" "It's a twist," Marin agrees. Lynn adds, "At the time, it just seemed like this huge, insurmountable thing between us, you know?" Marin ruefully says that she does, as though she's already thinking that the baby that did happen is going to be a huge, insurmountable thing between Marin and Jack instead. Lynn says that of course Marin would know, being a relationship coach. Marin shrugs that she isn't really doing that anymore. Lynn nosily asks why Marin was looking for Jack, and she says she was following up on a message he left her. "Are you guys dating?" asks Lynn possessively. Marin tells the technical truth, which is that they aren't; they're just friends. Lynn says that Jack is a great friend. "Yeah," Marin agrees sadly. Lynn says that Jack always said Lynn would make a great mother: "The minute you think you're going to lose something, it suddenly becomes the most important thing in your life, you know?" Marin knows. OH HOW SHE DOES KNOW.
Classic TV Cliché Alert! Theresa washes dishes at the Chieftain, and since we saw her put her ring back on earlier, we know all too well that she's going to lose it down the drain. Ben walks in, and she lies that it's just a slow drain. Once he leaves the room again, the ring is gone. Gone!
Doctor's office. Buzz has cataracts. He's going to be totally fine. Phew.
New York. Jane is getting ready to go out to this work party. Sam picks up the invitation and says that he'll go get dressed. Jane briskly tells him not to; the party will be boring, and he doesn't have to go. She's just going to make an appearance, and then she'll come home and they'll order in Chinese food. Sam, getting kind of pissed, says that he flew across the country (two, to be precise) because he thought she was so awesome, and she doesn't even want to introduce him to her friends. She tries to wave that off, but he reminds her about Margery. Jane dismissively says that Margery is no one he need be concerned about -- she's a closet Republican! Ew, gross! Sam asks, then, why Jane isn't going to take him to the party, and Jane reluctantly says that she doesn't think he'll fit in with the people who'll be attending: "They're horrible! I know, I'm one of them." Sam pouts that he's like her romance novels: "I'm the dirty secret you hide in your apartment." Jane has no response to all the truth Sam's laying down on her, so she just stammers that she's late. Sam pouts. It's okay, Sam. You can just withhold sex. Other housewives have been doing it for years.
