Cut to Michelle's first date, which is taking place at some anonymous yet chic restaurant. She watches as a woman comes inside and chats with the hostess. I swear, I know this actress -- the date, not Michelle -- from something, and it's killing me. I think it's an actress who played a character I hated so much on Dawson's Creek that I called her She Who Shall Not Be Recapped, and who then showed up on 24 last season, but her face looks a little wonky now and it might not be her. If it is, though, dude, She Who Shall Not Be Recapped, please leave me alone. At any rate, Michelle's eyes get all big when she sees that her date has a baby. Nameless Date apologizes for her tardiness and explains that her sitter bailed. "Oh, God, Kate didn't tell you that I have a baby, did she? She may not have known. We haven't been in touch in a while. I am the only lesbian she knows," Nameless Date says. Well, she didn't say that last part. Michelle stammers that it's okay. "I love kids," she offers. Well, Nameless Date is really excited about this! She is having the best day! "And Maya made the most perfect BM!" she says, lifting the baby out of her carrier and attaching the kid to her nipple. Michelle looks slightly taken aback, first by the poop report and then by the nipple, and while I can understand not wanting to talk about baby's bowels at the table, I don't think it's exactly fair to look grossed out by the breast-feeding. It's Maya's dinner time, too. On the other hand, it does seem like a misstep for a first date. Heavens, dating is complicated. Michelle proudly soldiers on, chatting about her gallery and her background in photography and whatnot. Nameless Date is soon distracted by a blonde woman at the bar, though, and hisses that it's her ex. "I can't believe she would come here. This is my restaurant," Nameless Date bitches, and hands over the baby before approaching the Ex. Michelle holds the baby awkwardly as Nameless and the Ex start groping each other. "Well, Maya, I guess it's just you and me," Michelle says, right before Maya vomits all over her.
