Cooking class. A bunch of mortified looking adults sit around, waiting for the apparently absent Stefan Dieter. Graham is sitting next to a fidgety woman, who says to him, "Well, this utterly sucks. I hate waiting. My fiancé says I have the shortest attention span known to man. Gum? Breath mint? Well, we're off to swell start, aren't we? The teacher being fourteen minutes late. Hey, doesn't this remind you of one of those Twilight Zone episodes? They thought they'd signed up for an ordinary cooking class. Little did they know they'd be forced to make awkward conversation with fourteen strangers for all eternity. No wait, wait, one of those human behavior experiments, where they determine how long it takes before we turn into Lord of the Flies?" Well, she's certainly on her way to conversing for all eternity, but all Graham says during this avalanche is, "Awkward pause." Then she says, to the whole room: "Um, I say we give him five minutes and then, mutiny, take over the stove, are you with me?" Everyone looks at each other like, "Who is this crazy bitch?" And she's still talking: "Um, maybe we should, um, all go around the room and, um, say why we're here. I'll start. Um. My fiancé hates my cooking. Now you know everything. Next?" She slaps Graham on the back, and he looks at her with wide-eyed annoyance, like, "Who is this crazy bitch...to whom I am strangely drawn?"
Chase Place. Patty at the table. When Graham comes in, she asks, "How was the class?" Graham says, "Strange." "Patty wants clarification, but Graham already has his head in the refrigerator, and he says: "Do we have any more of that spicy mustard?" Okay. This is simply brilliant, as we have to go back, I think, two episodes, to the very beginning of episode nine, for Rayanne's observation that spicy mustard is purely recreational, and all about sex. This, my friends, is Winnie Holzman's first, insanely subtle, clue that Graham is on the road to adultery. Not knowing that Graham is becoming enamored of another, Patty thinks that now would be a good time to open mouth and insert foot: "Did you feel like people were more advanced than you were, or something?" Graham wants to know why she'd assume that, which is a good question, since she of all people should know what a good cook he is, but she goes on, "Graham, it's okay if you hate it. I mean, it would probably make more sense to take the tuition money and hire one of those headhunters." Wow. She's awfully weak, isn't she? Anyway, they go back and forth until Patty realizes she's jumping to an unfounded conclusion based on nothing; or, you know, she doesn't so much realize this as much as Graham ends the conversation by leaving the room. I hate Patty.
