The doorbell rings, and Heather answers it without actually opening the door. The lawyer from the therapist's office is out there, and he asks for Lisa. Heather is hesitant to open the door for him, so he introduces himself as Gerald Misenbach and gives her his card. Heather pretends that her mom is actually home, but in the middle of a dinner party. Gerald turns around and notices the lack of cars around, which would suggest that no one is there. He tells Heather to ask Lisa to call him: "Some things have changed in my life. I'd really like to talk to her." Heather pretends that her mom is calling her, and that she has to go get more chips for the guests. Gerald expresses doubt that she is actually getting chips. Dude, she's a young girl home alone. Cut her some slack.
Lisa is sitting at a table with her date, and they mention that Roger and Ruth have been gone for some time. Lisa's date apologizes and says that he met someone between when he agreed to the date and now, but that he didn't want to ruin everyone's plans. Lisa says that it's okay, because she's happy just to meet new people and get out, and then she shows that she really is a good sport by asking him about the woman he met. Date Guy says that they met at the university where he teaches, and that she is on the young side -- actually, she's a student. Roger arrives just then and asks how things are going, and gives out too much information about his wife's stomach condition. Lisa tells Roger, "Richard's met someone." Roger notes that it's awkward, but Lisa says it's not. Richard says that it is awkward for him because the woman he met is only twenty. Dude! What are you, Michael Douglas? The writers fall back on the time-honored technique of "getting drunk to deal with a big shock" and have Roger order another drink. Richard tries to explain that he has met people before, but his fear (there it is again!) always got the better of him. He finally got the courage to ask this woman out. Lisa says, "So you had coffee?" and Richard gives out too much information by saying, "For three days." Roger gets his drink, drains it, and immediately orders another. There is nothing funnier than someone rapidly downing alcohol, is there?
