Diner. Maria asks Liz how she's doing since she ordered a cottage cheese milkshake. Liz says she doesn't know if she's "mad or insane or what." Maria asks what she's mad about. Liz says she's mad about impotence. She says she feels powerless and wonders if she should pull the plug on life. I don't understand. Maria's all, "Suicide?" and Liz is all, "Would you stop?" She's mad at everyone and yelling about something as Max walks into the diner and Liz's dad shouts, "No, you don't!" from behind the kitchen counter. Max walks up and says he needs to speak to him for a second. The dad tells him to leave and starts to get pushy, so Liz jumps between them and tells her father to stop. Max says he's leaving anyway. He does. Liz's dad is scary-looking. "I hate you," she says to him, and leaves. Which one's the alien there?
Isabel has gone to see Jesse's mom. There's a tiny ice-cream cart behind her so you know Jesse's mom lives in the suburbs. She introduces herself, and MamaJesse invites her in. DeadAlex hides behind a tree for some reason as Isabel and Jesse walk through Jesse's backyard. Jesse's wearing a white tank top. Jesse shows Isabel his mother's garden. "My mom's pride and joy," he says. "I thought that'd be you," Isabel says. "No, I don't bend easy enough at the waist," Jesse says. What the fuck does that mean? He's not a plant? He's not a girl? He's not a dancer? He's not a prostitute? Jesse says they should talk. The music never stops here as Isabel says she doesn't want to lose him, even though she broke up with him. They hug. He asks her out for dinner tomorrow night. "Dinner?" she asks. He says they both need to lay their cards on the table. Isabel looks very far away, but there's no television orgasm this time.
Isabel is all gussied up, so I guess it's the next night, and now she wants advice from Max and LongHair Michael, who are playing foosball in Michael's apartment. Just imagine that Max is Joey, Michael is Chandler, and Isabel's Rachel and you can see what they're trying to do here. Isabel stops the game and says that there's someone she wants to tell about them. Jesse Ramirez, the lawyer that works for her dad. She says they've gotten close. They're involved. Michael asks if she's pregnant. Isabel indignantly says that she's not, and that they haven't even slept together. I guess they just make out all the time. "Has he seen you use your powers?" Michael asks, and I start laughing. Michael should use his powers to get that thing removed from his eyebrow. Max asks why she needs to tell him. She says she wants to tell him because she loves him and she wants him to know her. Michael shakes his head. She says it's humiliating to have to come here and ask for their permission to have an open and honest discussion with her boyfriend. Michael congratulates her on finding a great guy and then tells her to lie about herself. He walks away. "He's gonna leave, Max," he says. If she's not honest with him, he'll leave. Max asks how long they've been together. Now it's been three months. She says she knows him and this is the first time she's ever been in love and if she loses him she doesn't know what she's doing on Earth. What are they doing there on Earth? She says that Max has Liz and Michael has Maria and this is the first time she's had someone. What about Alex? Max asks what will happen if they break up. Isabel says they won't break up. Max says that right now he's not so sure it was the best idea to tell Liz that he's an alien. It's screwing up her life. Isabel says that no matter how much it screws up her life, at least they have each other and that's the most important thing. Max says they agreed not to tell anyone else about this after Alex died so that nobody else was at risk. She'll be changing Jesse's life forever, making him a part of something he never asked to be a part of.
