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.
Outside the courtroom, Sandy calls Jerrold a "sly" one, and I'm trying to figure out what's so sly about having a well-prepared case and, you know, the law on your side. Jerrold considers "sly" a compliment, though, only to find out that Sandy wasn't complimenting his mad legal skillz as much as those of his "secret weapon." Jerrold says Sandy should have been nicer to Kate when she was twelve. Sandy smirks and sashays over to Kate. "You're good," she says, adding that Kate reminds her of a "slightly" younger version of herself, and I can't find it in my dictionary where it defines "slightly" as "actually, much." She says if Kate ever gets tired of working for her old man, she should give Sandy a call. I'm sure if Kate wants to learn how to screw opposing counsel to wrangle a great deal for your client, she just might take her up on that. Kate apologizes for being a brat when Sandy was dating Kate's dad. "I just didn't want to lose him," says Kate. "Neither did I," says Sandy, before strolling away to make more great movies like Scandalous Me: The Jacqueline Susann Story and Big Dreams & Broken Hearts: The Dottie West Story. Is she going to have a regular gig on this show? Because in the race of Actresses Who Daniel Wants Back On Miss Match Anytime Soon, Michele Lee is about eight miles behind Charisma Carpenter.
