The Liberty Diner as seen through the eyes of Mrs. Jennifer Taylor, walking through the door. Debbie calls out to her, "If you're looking for Saks Fifth Avenue, honey, you took a wrong turn." Debbie finally recognizes her as "Sunshine's Mom." And asks how Justin's doing. Jennifer tells her, like it's Debbie's fault, that Justin didn't come home last night, and wants to know if Debbie knows where he is. Debbie says that she hasn't seen him. Jennifer turns to leave, trying not to cry, and Debbie asks her to sit down and have a cup of coffee. Jennifer snaps that she gave up coffee. Debbie sighs, "Of course you did. How about some herbal tea, then?" Jennifer sits down, and Debbie goes through the packets of tea -- finding a random condom in the process-- until settling on a tea called "Get Happy," which has Jennifer written all over it. Mrs. Taylor bravely holds back her contempt. Debbie asks what Mr. Taylor thinks about all this. Jennifer says that he doesn't know. Debbie asks how he couldn't know. Seriously. Talk about "flames burning bright." Jennifer replies, "Same reason I didn't? He didn't want to?" Debbie tells her that there are far worse things for Justin to be than gay. Jennifer: "I just keep thinking it's my --" Debbie: "It's not." Jennifer: "If only I had --" Debbie: "You couldn't." Jennifer's annoyed -- obviously she's the first mother in the world who's ever been through this; how could Debbie possibly know what she was going to say? Debbie confirms that she asked herself the same questions, but "people are who they are." Debbie asks if Justin told her to fuck off, Jennifer says that wasn't even the worst of it: "He told the therapist that he likes dick." Debbie: "See, you already have something in common. I bet you were thinking you would never have anything to share again!" Well, there's an unpleasant image. Thanks, Debbie. Debbie, serious, tells Jennifer that more than anything, beyond all the tough talk, Justin's probably afraid that she'll stop loving him. Jennifer says that she could never do that. Debbie tells her to be sure that he knows that. Yeah, but she's going to have catch up to him, first. Good luck.
At the chiropractor's, the doctor's making Mike cross his legs, and he's leaning really close to him, applying pressure to his back. He asks Mike if this is his first time at the chiropractor's, and Mike replies, "Yeah, but if I'd known it was going to be like this, I would have come sooner." Bad-dum-bump! Dr. Dave leans into Mike's knees, and Mike groans. The doctor asks if he's hurting him, but Mike says he isn't, and then eagerly rolls over onto his stomach when asked. Ha! Dr. Dave tells him that the fall probably aggravated a pre-existing condition, and all Mike needs to do is rest and give it some time, "and let the swelling go down." Have we fulfilled our dumb-ass pun quotient for the night, yet? Dr. Dave tells him he can get up, but Mike wants to lie there for a while, "I feel great. Too great." Dr. Dave grins as he walks out the door, "Don't be embarrassed. It happens all the time. Even to football players."
