David's. Mike and Hank are on the floor of the living room, surrounded by comics and having a great time. David walks in, and Hank tells his father that they found the cool comic, and Mike tells his boyfriend that he owes him a hundred and fifty bucks. Ha! Hank runs upstairs to page his friend who's also into Scorpionhead. David tries to stop him and ask about his day, but Hank's up the stairs too quickly. Mike tells David that they had "a blast." David asks Mike to tell him about the Incline, and Mike admits that they didn't really follow the schedule, but went to the comic book store instead. David dangerously intones, "What about all the things I had planned? You sat around here all day and read comics?!" Fire in the hole! ["No pun intended." -- Wing Chun] Mike replies, "Well, that's what Hank wanted. Don't take this the wrong way, but he's not too crazy about the schedule. He doesn't understand why you have to drag him around every minute." David snaps, "Who's dragging him around? I just want him to have a good time." As David jumps up, Mike replies, "Well, maybe his idea of a good time is different than yours, and you didn't bother to find out what his was." David yells, "Don't tell me how to raise my son!" Mike says that he isn't, he's just trying to help, and David snarls, "Now, all of a sudden, you're a fucking authority?" Okay, are we all off Dr. Dave, now? Thought so. Mike's hanging in there, still: "He's not happy here! He wants to go home, and not for the reasons I thought, but because of you. You're the problem" Well, that's straight to the point, isn't it? David nods curtly, and bolts away from him.
Dale's. Ted enters Dale's dungeon. Dale puts on his mask and, unbuttoning Ted's shirt, intones, "There are many pleasures to be found here. Places you were afraid to even think of going. I can take you there, but first you must surrender to me, completely." He asks Ted if he surrenders, and Ted agrees. Dale corrects him -- in there, it's, "I surrender, Sir." Ted adds the "Sir." Dale tells Ted that he is now "Slave," and starts to unbutton his pants. Ted grouses that it's kind of cold in the dungeon, and Dale snaps that he didn't say Ted could speak. Ted apologizes, and Dale sternly reminds him to add the "Sir," so Ted complies. Ted pushes down his pants, and Dale tells him to do exactly what he's told. Turning Ted around with his whip (during which we get a brief glimpse of Fully-Frontal Ted, but not much) and straps him to the tree of pain. Dale caresses the back of Ted's body with his hands, and then pulls out the whip.
