Ted's office. He's on a conference call with Emmett and Mike. Seems Blake's gone AWOL. Ted's been looking everywhere. Emmett drawls something about only running into people when you're not looking for them. Whatever. Ted's worried: "He never came home." Emmett snaps, "Home?" Mike suggests calling the police or the hospitals. Emmett suggests calling the morgue. Ted suggests that they both suggest something more helpful and less alarming. Emmett: "Forget why he left or where he went, and just be grateful that he's gone." Yes, I'm sure Ted will get right on that.
The Happy Fun House. Justin helps Brian's Lesbians to get their new bed up the stairs. Justin asks why they didn't buy one at a department store, preferably one with free delivery. St. L., as Melanie Marcus giggles, says that she saw an ad for 50\% off, and couldn't resist. Justin snorts, "So, in order to save a hundred bucks, you risked permanent back injury. Women are so fucking weird." Yep, just when we were doing so well, we're back on the awkward dialogue transitions. St. L. demands to know why that's a woman thing. Justin argues that no guy, unless he didn't have the money, would do something like that. That's so not true. Most guys I know would be insulted that they would even need the damn thing delivered, and if challenged, would probably agree to carry the bed, box spring included, on their heads all the way home. Just to prove they could. Shut up, Justin. Justin continues, "And you're weird about sex. After I had sex with my friend Daphne, she flipped out." Brian's Lesbians are like, what? And, uh, Justin, honey? After you had sex with Brian? You flipped out. Remember you spent the first four weeks trying to convince anyone who would listen that the two of you were in love? Following him around? Sleeping with him some more and getting dissed, always? Karma: not just a former member of the New Mutants. Look it up. Justin explains to Brian's Lesbians that Daphne wanted him to be her first, and on Mel and Lindsay's look, is like, what's the big deal? Lindsay asks how it was. Justin says that Daphne's going to need a little practice. Grrr. Justin adds that the point is that they agreed that nothing would change, and now he thinks that Daph's in love with him. But this scenario doesn't sound familiar to him, nor to anyone else in the room. I would have given the House of QaF full props if Melanie Marcus bust out laughing at him right now. But no, Melanie Marcus and Lindsay actually let him off easy! Lindsay starts by saying that it's not so easy for a woman to separate sex and love as it is for a man. Yes, it is. Melanie Marcus adds that that was always her biggest complaint about men. Lindsay says, "And here you are, allowing someone to come inside your body." Sound familiar, Sunshine? Melanie Marcus continues, "And you've never felt so close to anyone in your life." St. L. ends, "And before you know it, you're falling in love with this person, because they've made you feel like how you never thought you could feel." Ringing any bells there, babe? Melanie Marcus asks if Justin understands now. Justin nods mutely. But he really doesn't.
