Jerry's office. Kate lies on the sofa and wails that she can't believe Karl pulled the wool over her eyes. Kate, sweetie? Start doing background checks on your clients. All good yentas have a vetting process. "Why can't I be more like you?" she wails. "Hardened and cynical?" Jerry asks with a smile. "Dispassionate. Single-minded. A shark," Kate corrects him. Jerry thinks about this, and finally tells her that he thinks she could maybe become "a killer dolphin," but assures his daughter that her own style works for her. The shag carpeting in Jerry's office is awesome, by the way. Kate wonders if they could prosecute Karl. "Waste of time," Jerry tells her. The DA is too busy to help a single woman scammed out of two first-class tickets to Hawaii, he explains. Kate wails that Karl's been doing this to women for years. "If you feel so strongly about it, try the case yourself. Nail the love bandit for fraud. For inflicting emotional distress," Jerry suggests. "The Love Bandit?" Kate parrots. Jerry grins. "It has a nice ring to it," he says, and tells her that the worst thing that can happen is that she'll get laughed out of court. Kate is not comforted, and the situation only gets worse when Judy sweeps in, complaining about "the vomiting lesbian baby." Kate sighs and swears that she's working on the lesbians. Judy informs Kate that Kate knows nothing about the lesbian world. "There are many choices! There's butches, femmes, diesels, tomboys, your androgynous Glen or Glenda types, lipsticks. It's not one size fits all," she says. Kate swears again that the situation is under control. "I'm planning a ladies' night at the Sunset Lounge," she trills. At this, Judy looks thrilled, and Nick comes running in, drawn by the words "Ladies' Night." He wonders why he wasn't invited. "Because they're lesbians?" Kate says. "And the problem is?" Nick asks. The world rolls its collective eyes. Judy strokes Kate's hair. "You are such a beautiful girl. Why couldn't you be a lesbian? Unless there's something we don't know?" she asks, and both Kate and Judy look over at Jerry. "Honey?" he asks. Kate shrugs.
