And now for some fun. Hill swears and accuses Beecher of having farted. Beecher denies it, and says Hill's trying to cover the fact that he was the one that farted, but Hill counters that Beecher's the one covering, because, as he already said, he farted. If you haven't had this exact conversation with a family member or friend, well, you just haven't lived in the world. They bicker back and forth until Beecher definitively states, "I. Didn't. Fart." Perfect little pause, and then he cuts a loud one. HA! Hill swears, and Beecher giggles, and if you've never concluded this discussion by doing exactly what Beecher did here, well, I pity you.
I'd like to state for the record that if you were to add up the mental ages of all the recappers at Television Without Pity, I'm not at all convinced you'd even reach triple digits. ["Maybe if you used a square-root symbol...?" -- Sars]
Diane enters McManus's office. McManus is doing sit-ups. Diane coyly tells McManus that it's her first day back working in Em City, and that she'll "let" him take her out to dinner to celebrate. Because your kids and dying mother will gladly take a night off so you can flirt with your odious ex-boyfriend, Diane. And what's with the hair? It's begging for a scrunchie, and that, like so many things in this recap, is not a compliment. McManus doesn't even stop his set as he turns her down. She "nonchalantly" asks if he has a date, and he says yes. She gives him the fakest fake smile ever as she tells him to have fun. If you've ever watched Melrose Place, think the smiles that Amanda and Allison used to exchange, and you'll have the idea.
