Isabel's phone rings, and she dives for it to escape further interaction with WF. Which was probably a big mistake, since Max -- making excellent use of his downtime on the Air Force base -- is on the line. "So you think you're getting married?" he barks. Isabel wonders how he found out, and he tells her about his conversation with the maternal unit; I'm developing a fondness for Eunice since she seems so adept at making Isabel's life worse by the minute. Max goes all big brother on her, telling her she's only known "this guy" for a month. Isabel takes offense that Max referred to her beloved as "this guy," and then says that she's known Jesse for four months. Whatever -- Max doesn't understand the rush. Isabel doesn't want to have this conversation right now, he tells her not to make any more plans until he gets back, and she says she's not a child, to which Max replies, "Yeah, well, you're acting like one." Niiice. Isabel hangs up and looks ready for an aneurysm; WF takes one look at Isabel's expression and makes a hasty retreat.
General Chambers, also on the phone (perhaps drafted to weigh in against Isabel's marriage?), hangs up and tells Cal that he can't help him with the ship; the Pentagon says no. Cal protests that it's no big deal since everyone knows the ship is a hoax, to which Chambers agrees, and explains the decision as an increased level of caution in the wake of Pearl Harbor. This thirst for quality has obviously not extended beyond the silver screen -- or perhaps Roswell has gone renegade with an unauthorized Air Force tie-in. I think it far exceeds last week's overly sanctioned Enterprise crossover, but then that's just me. And furthermore, General C., Cal has won four Academy Awards! Cal tries to confirm that the ship is on the base, but Chambers isn't budging. When the Armed Forces are involved, no means no. Tailhook was an anomaly.
