In a coffee shop, Kate's meeting with Rachel, asking her if she's sure she wants to "get back out there." Rachel says she's sure, so Kate starts describing "Tim," who's thirty-five, looks like a Kennedy (kind of range, there, isn't it? What if he looks like Teddy?), and is a philanthropist. Rachel nixes that idea, so Kate tries again: "How about a Fulbright scholar who teaches economics at inner-city schools?" Rachel says no to that one too, since she wants to meet someone who's exactly like Jared, only not a love addict. Kate's all, yeah, that's a GREAT idea. But wouldn't you like to meet different kinds of people? Rachel's all, nope! I stopped eating Tubby Hubby after I met Jared (wow -- what is it, three whole days ago? Now that's willpower!). "I stopped craving it; he was all I needed. But now I feel like eating pint after pint after pint," she says. Kate gives her a little nutrition lesson on how most high-density ice creams contain high-fructose corn syrup. "Is that supposed to help?" asks Rachel. Kate says it means that she can eat as much as she wants and she'll never feel full; that's why it's so addictive and why you're always "jonesing for a fix." I'm not sure how much more of this addiction talk I can take; we're talking clinical terms here, so I'm not sure that equating life-threatening dependencies on debilitating substances like alcohol and heroin with playing too much smoochy-face and porking out on ice cream is entirely appropriate. "So, I'm addicted to ice cream?" "We're all addicted to something," says Kate. Since that makes no sense, Rachel wonders what she should do.
The judge is reading her verdict in the case of Baxter vs. Baxter. No surprise here -- she finds in favour of Ms. Baxter, who I've just now noticed looks kind of a like a female Ed Grimley. "I said all along she had a case," says Nick. Then the judge calls Kate up to the bench. To commend her handling of the case? To compliment her questioning technique? No. To get the tilapia recipe. Damn. Everyone knows that finding in favour of someone just to score some good recipes is grounds for appeal. Ms. Baxter's not going to see dollar one of her settlement.
