Back at the loft, Lindsay tut-tuts, "I hope they find who's responsible." Brian snorts, "I know who's responsible. That little asshole who forgot to set the alarm." Lindsay raises an eyebrow, saying, "As if you never forgot anything!" And Brian sneers, "Nothing that important."
Brian and Lindsay's screen closes up as Ted and Melanie's opens. Melanie says that she wants Lindsay to be happy: "And that's all I've ever wanted." I just don't have the time to tackle that one. Ted says that it's going to be tough to support all of them on her salary. Melanie says she could take on more cases, or they could cut their expenses. Tough with a new baby. Babies are cute, but costly.
Back with the Oldest Gay Couple in the World, David tells Mike that Short Hair and Long Hair met during WWII. That's really old. They served together in the Navy, on the Yorktown. Thereby disproving that old Marine joke about the Navy, "It's not gay if you can't see land." I used to date a Marine once. "Fun" isn't quite the right word for that relationship. Anyway, Long Hair says, "Talk about a gay cruise -- there was this place behind the ammo bay where you could get a blow job, anytime. Day or night." David roars. Mikey's perplexed. Short Hair adds, "This was wartime. You could die at any moment." Long Hair ends, "And sex was how you knew you were still alive." I don't think that's a diagnostic technique they're ever going to try on ER, though.
That scene slides over for Melanie and Ted. Ted suggests asking Brian for help, and Melanie shakes her head: "I told Lindsay, Brian is not the solution to our problems -- he is the cause." Oh, he is so not. Whatever, Melanie. Ted shrugs and says that there's only one other possibility, and hands her a folder.
Brian and Lindsay. Lindsay asks Brian where Justin went, and Brian says he doesn't know; he told Justin to pack up and get out. Lindsay's shocked.
Melanie and Ted. Ted's handed Melanie a folder that contains papers about her inheritance from her father. Ted says that it's her only choice if Lindsay's going to stay home with the baby. Melanie laughs uneasily and says, "It's just that, that's my nest egg. It's all I have in case something should happen." Ted says it's a tough call, but there's really nothing else she can do.
