Back at the game, the gang is discussing osteoporosis. "What are you going to do with your old suits?" asks Dan. Isaac, very calmly: "I was thinking about shoving them up your --" but Dan says, "No problem." Heh.
Jeremy gets up, saying he has to go to the bathroom. Will snags his seat. "It's the good chair!" he says. Screwed over yet again in plot and dialogue. Jeremy is all girly trying to get Dan to come with him, saying pointedly, "You want to come with me to the bathroom, Dan?" It takes Danny about half an hour with everybody staring at him to pick up the hint. Outside, Jeremy says, "I didn't really have to go to the bathroom, I just wanted to talk." "I don't think anyone saw through your clever ruse," says Dan, even though he was totally sucked in. Jeremy tells Dan he needs advice because he's in the doghouse with Natalie. They go into Dan's office. "Clearly I've broken some rule that no one ever taught me," he says. Poor Jeremy is all twisted up, thinking this is his fault. I'll give you some free advice: no one ever tells you the rules, you need to figure them out. And when you do figure them out, women think to themselves, "Well, this will never do," and come up with new rules. ["That's goddamn right. Er, I mean, 'What are you talking about, Daniel?'" -- Sars] But there's some nice dialogue as Dan outlines Jeremy's transgression: he played tennis with some friends instead of spending time with Natalie. "And one of those friends happened to be a beautiful actress," says Dan. "Yes," says Jeremy. Dan cocks his head. "Dude," he says, quietly. Jeremy says, "I know." Heh. Is there any word more versatile than "dude"? It's a greeting; a scolding; an expression of admiration, surprise, disgust, or delight. Danny cracks open a couple of beers from his office fridge and says Jeremy was "wise" to come to him with this problem. Yeah, go to the perpetually single guy for advice on women. Dan proceeds to spout some nonsense about how "a man's past is more important to them than his future." Which Jeremy doesn't really understand and neither, really, does Dan. Jeremy realizes Dan is full of it (not exactly a shocker) and decides he has to stand firm, which is difficult when she puts on one of his shirts. Guys around the world nod understandingly as Jeremy talks about Natalie wearing one his white dress shirts. Jeremy reiterates that it's important to stand firm, and skedaddles.
