Debbie lets herself into Mike's apartment. She went by the store; they told her that Mike quit, and she's freaking out. What? Where's all the support you were spouting this morning? Debbie drives me crazy. Of course, my own mother often drives me crazy in much the same way, so maybe that's the point. Mike grumps that he's following his dream. Debbie's all, you dreamt of being unemployed? Brian walks in from the bathroom and tells Debbie to back off the man. Debbie's not surprised that Brian's involved in this. Brian says he didn't have anything to do with it, actually. Debbie doesn't believe that for a second. Brian's like, it's Mike's life, he can do what he wants. Debbie snaps, "Yeah, that's easy for you to say -- you can pay your bills." Good grief, just shut up for a second and let Mike explain, already. He's trying to auction something on eBay. Fearless product placement! Yay! Brian chuckles that, if he's trying to sell his mother, "Better start the bidding low." Debbie smacks him. Mike's auctioning off the comic book Brian bought him. Brian's not too pleased about that; that comic cost a lot of money. Mike explains that he's going to use the money to buy the comic-book store. Debbie yells that that's crazy! Mike yells back that it's better than being a miserable Q-Martyr for the rest of his life! That's all Brian needs to hear, and he asks how high the bidding's gone. Mike says it's up to a thousand dollars. Brian's outraged, because the comic cost him way more than that. He tells Mike to scoot over. Debbie paces in front of them. If Mike asks really nicely, she mumbles, and apologizes maybe the Q-Mart will take him back. Mike tells Brian that there's only five minutes left in the auction. Brian decides to put in a bid for five thousand dollars, because "the secret to getting someone to want something is to convince them that someone else wants it more." A little lesson he learned from Justin once. Debbie snorts that that will never work. But she wasn't in Babylon that night, so she wouldn't know. And it does work. The next bid goes up to six thousand dollars. Debbie moves in to take a closer look.
