Brian's Ad Agency, Which they haven't named yet, so as far as I'm concerned, it's Brian's. Brian and the frowsy blonde from the first episode are walking down this winding staircase. She says that his boss, Ryder (cute) wants to see him. Brian says that he can wait: "all [Ryder] wants to do is tear me a new asshole." The blonde retorts that she always thought he could use another one. Yeah, by now, he probably could use one. No, you're right, I didn't really just say that. Anyway, Marvin Telson walks up to them, and Brian's pretty surprised -- he thought the agency was being blown off. Stay tuned. Telson, all silkily: "First impressions can be misleading. After you get to know somebody, you discover how much in common you really have." Whatever, Marvin. Brian asks Telson if he wants to go to his office and go over some ad ideas, Telson replies that sounds great, and he also wants to take Brian up on his offer to show him the town. Brian's all steaks and basketball, but Telson says, "No, I'm more in the mood for an evening that you might plan for yourself." Brian, who's pretty slow this ep: "And what sort of evening is that?" Telson says he wants to check out Babylon. Brian, with a shit-eating grin, "Why, Marvin. You old dog! Christ! Isn't anyone straight any more?" Hah!
Mike at the chiropractor's. Dr. Dave Cameron, way hunky, walks in and introduces himself. Mike can't stop staring at him. Dr. Dave's all business, and Mike's this close to getting giggly as Dr. Dave massages his back. Mike explains that he hurt himself at the store the night before, when he fell off the ladder. Dr. Dave tells him to lie down on his back, which Mike's a little hesitant to do, because that position might be a little...revealing. Mike, jovially, "This is my favorite position." Dr. Dave ignores Mike and cracks his neck.
