Marin enters as Buzz and Patrick are hugging it out, and gets right to the radio show. Topic? The man/woman divide. Patrick thinks there are vast biological differences; Marin's not so sure it isn't just a mindset. What makes a man? Extra hair seems to be part of it.
At Jack's, I guess we're supposed to think several months have passed, because Lynn's belly is out to here, whereas it was completely flat in the last episode, when Jane told us she was going to be in Elmo for two weeks. OKAY, WHATEVER. Anyway, Lynn likes "Michael" for a boy, or "Isabella" for a girl. She calls Jack out for ignoring her (though he was at least half-listening, since he correctly repeats the names she likes), and then tells him she has a doctor's appointment the next day, and that he could come (instead of Theresa, already lined up to accompany her) and meet the doctor. Jack pleads overwork, and Lynn says it's okay and trudges over to the couch to stare balefully at Jack's back and muse about how much warmer she would be right now if she had gone to Vancouver.
Sam's. Jane ties knots; Sam wears a masque. She's frustrated at the difficulty; he's frustrated by the pain of his drying masque. That is a hassle, though it's fun to smile really hard when you have one on and see where all the wrinkles will be when you're ooooooold.
Fancy hotel. Stuart's checking in when Marin calls, apologizing for anything unladylike she might have said the night before. Stuart replies with his own apology for anything "untoward" he uttered; both seem cool with the chat, though. Turns out he's at a corporate retreat in Idaho: a token meeting or two, and then lots of skiing. He suggests that Marin come, and though she's taken aback to be invited on an overnight ski trip, he says she could have her own room if she decided to stay. He says he thinks that getting to know her is an amazing opportunity, and Marin, totally smitten, agrees to go. Stuart says he'll send a plane to Sitka to pick her up. You know, I think I'd go on a ski retreat with anyone if they sent a plane to get me. Seriously. Anyone. Even Bruce Vilanch.
Inn. Marin's on her way out -- Jane telling her all the while that she doesn't approve of Marin's fraternization with her publisher -- when she runs into Jack, returning a juicer he borrowed from Patrick to make juice for Lynn. Noting Marin's bags, he asks if she's going away. She tries to downplay it, but Jane makes sure Jack knows it's a "ski date." Jack's all, "Good for you" and "Have fun," and leaves. Marin crabs at Jane for busting her on her ski date, and Jane's like, "Whatever. He's making juice for his pregnant girlfriend." Heh. What kind of fruit do they have in Elmo to make juice from, though? I'm thinking canned peaches, and I don't like it.
