Charlie is getting ready to leave for work, and telling Kirsten he's going to be late. Kirsten walks in looking even more gaunt than usual, blaming it on "morning sickness." I really wish before this show ends that someone would acknowledge that Kirsten does not have enough body fat to fuel her own activities, much less those of a baby. I can't believe she was even menstruating. Charlie says he's canceling everything until lunch to stay with her. Kirsten picks up a saltine, but doesn't actually eat it, and says that she's fine. Then she totally retches and covers her mouth with her hand, like why wouldn't she turn around and face the sink that is right behind her if she has to throw up? Would she rather yak into her hand like Jen on Dawson's Creek did that one time? Charlie looks bemused at her protests that she is fine and pours her a glass of water. Kirsten says, "Every breakfast I lose, means I'm one toss closer to having our baby." That is possibly the dumbest line I've ever heard on this show, and that's saying something. Plus, her breath would be really heinous if she's been throwing up all morning. I'm just saying. Charlie says she makes him laugh, and she actually takes a bit of the saltine. Kirsten tells him that he should look at his job that way too -- that every stupid meeting is just a step towards getting back to designing. Charlie says, "Oh, little woman, you don't know anything about the big, important world of business. Now go make me a turkey pot pie." Well, that's practically what he said.
