Calm blue ocean.
Dana asks Natalie if she thinks Casey's been seeing Sally. She asks it THREE TIMES. Natalie says no each time. "Just like that?" says Dana. Natalie's confused, but it's Dana's opinion (and keep in mind that she's a complete lunatic) that Natalie said "no" too quickly, that she didn't seem to think about it at all, when we all know that if Natalie had paused to consider it at all, Dana would be curled up on the floor in a fetal position, MUCH LIKE I AM RIGHT NOW. They discuss how they both think they'd know if Casey were seeing Sally. Yes, because the idea that a person might keep something to himself in this place is a foreign concept. Dana then points out how discreet Casey is and wonders why Casey wouldn't be seeing Sally, who is "the best-looking woman...in the world," and Casey just got out of a ten-year marriage to a "pretty hideous wench." "Wench"? "Wouldn't you be seeing Sally?" asks Dana. And the idea of Natalie seeing Sally provides a moment's respite for me. Dana and Natalie start complimenting each other's body, which was also nice. Then Dana gets all gloomy and points out that Sally hasn't made her advances a secret. "She is 'Sally the Willing,'" says Dana. How nice of Dana to imply that another woman is a slut just because she's interested in Casey. So okay, Sally's a bad example. But still. Natalie puts a smile on Dana's face by telling her she knows Casey isn't seeing Sally, because he cares about Dana and knows it would hurt her feelings. That's great, really nice. I say since Dana is Gordon's girlfriend, her feelings shouldn't be a factor in Casey's decisions about whom he sleeps with. And don't give me any crap about how it's worse because Sally produces West Coast Update, because that's just so much blah blah blah to me.
Anyway, Dana's feelings apparently aren't a factor, as we see in the next scene. Danny is running down a list of names that some people have trouble pronouncing, like Moira and Kirsten. Dan needs to keep in mind that some people are idiots. Casey doesn't want to talk about it, but Danny says he has nothing else to do. Casey tells him to get the score of the Michigan-Michigan State game, and lo and behold, Sally comes swinging in from around the corner and delivers that very information. Some verbal sparring with Dan ensues; Dan wonders why she's wearing heels when she's nineteen feet tall. Sally asks him if he's feeling diminutive, and Dan completely loses the fight because he doesn't know what "diminutive" means. This is what passes for an Ivy League education these days? Personally, I think tall women who wear high heels kick ass, and a good example was this tall woman I met in the bar a few weeks ago who was at least five-ten, and on top of that was wearing heels, and on top of that was also complaining about how short the guys in the bar were. It wasn't the first time I've thanked God that I'm six feet tall.
