Gala. Julia walks up to Harvey and Miriam, who's played by the glorious Margo Martindale (aaaah! Don't accept any drinks from her! It's already in the jar!), and thanks her for inviting her to present. Miriam, of course, has no idea what Julia's talking about (and to present... what? This doesn't look like the kind of shindig that involves awards. It's just a bunch of glitzy people having dinner and gossiping), and as Julia rambles on, asking her when she'll be speaking so she can know in advance and manage her stage fright, Miriam and Harvey are exchanging amazing WTF looks.
Julia tries to remind her that she asked her and Tom to speak and Miriam says, perfectly, "No, I didn't. And I wouldn't." Tom pops up just then, a hair too late, and Julia practically runs off, mortified. Tom catches up with her and Julia's ready to flay all the flesh off his bones. He tries to make excuses for his lies about how happy his lies made her. An older woman interrupts them to say she just saw Heaven and Earth for the third time, but the replacement lead isn't very good. Tom all but pats her on the head.
Tom says he's sympathetic to what Julia's been going through and he's worried about her, but it's hard on him watching her so depressed for so long. She says they're different people and she needs time. He says that as partners, her time is his time and she asks if he thinks she's holding him back. She says he's hiding something and he tells her all the gossip about her having a nervous breakdown and how everyone thinks he should look for an Oscar Hammerstein to replace Julia's Lorenz Hart. But he doesn't want a new partner. He wants Julia back.
Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Or what TV producers think Greenpoint looks like. (At least they've heard there are non-white people in Brooklyn, Lena.) Bobby, Jessica, Ana and Karen arrive at Jimmy and Kyle's little to-do, and Bobby immediately spots Kyle and beelines over. Karen points out Jimmy, who is wearing plaid flannel, because he is, like, authentic or something. The girls push her to go talk to him. They banter, kind of, about Brooklyn. Karen asks for a drink, so Jimmy hollers at Ryan that they need more beer, then gives Karen his because he might not trust her with his music, but it sure looks like he wants to nail her six ways to Sunday.
Ivy asks Derek what's going on with him and he says there's a whole line of Rockettes telling lies about him. He says, "You know what I'm like, I'm not that bad." Ivy seems disinclined to agree. He admits that he was an ass when their relationship ended, but protests that he's not a monster and Ivy asks if he shouldn't be telling Karen, his muse, all this. Derek says Ivy's his friend or at least she was. She says she was a lot of things, but she doesn't know what she is anymore or even if she wants to stay in the business. He looks like he's about to upchuck in the bushes.
