Elsewhere, Tom is trying to badger Harriet into doing a voice for Matt as they walk into Matt's office. She keeps insisting that she doesn't want to, because it's nothing good, but Tom is all over her. "Do it," he insists. Then he turns to Matt and solemnly says, "Dolphin Girl." Harriet finally relents and gives a chirping little stutter that's really pretty funny, and Matthew Perry does an absolutely fucking genius job with the reaction shot. You see him almost bust out laughing, and then decide not to bust out laughing, and then compose himself. It's not easy to do that quite that well, but I watched it twice, because it's really funny. He finally says, "Oh, my God." Tom runs a little bit of dialogue about a guy trying to get his roommate to like his new girlfriend. Who, of course, turns out to be Dolphin Girl. Harriet does the laugh again, and Matt has to stop himself from laughing again. "Put it up," he says approvingly.
Tom leaves, and Matt decides to launch into a bugging thing about Harriet and her love life. "Did you see Luke much over the holidays?" he asks. Harriet says, "Just for hair and makeup tests, and to do him a couple times in his hot tub." "Twice? That's a pretty serious relationship for Luke," Matt observes. Harriet's all "pot, kettle," and insists that Luke "has more romanticness in his whole body than you've got in your little finger." Still can't get a line out without a boy to write it for her! Poor Harriet. She kind of permanently stuck at "genius comedienne, but not right now." Matt points out both the backwards idiom and the non-word "romanticness," so she leaves, knowing that she will never have the upper hand, because everyone knows Kristin Chenoweth couldn't beat Aaron Sorkin in an argument. Especially if he got to tell her what to say.
When she's gone, we see that Tom didn't leave as it appeared he had, but is still in Matt's office, reading a magazine. He is hanging around, you see, to ask Matt for permission to ask Lucy out. Aw! He says that he's asking because the last couple of years were inhospitable to workplace dating. "There were some incidents," Tom says. "Not with me." Matt moves on from this, and he says that what Tom should keep in mind is that Lucy is lovely and damaged and foreign and just got stomped. "'So you should proceed with character and maturity," Matt advises. And then, of course, he predictably goes back to yelling to Suzanne about bidding on Harriet. It turns out that there are many bidders, including "HarrietRules." And lukes5858 is up to $1200. So Matt bids $1201, and he wants Suzanne to find a nonprofit that does the opposite of them, and donate the same amount to them. Suzanne guesses this would be a pro-sex group, and Matt says that in L.A., "you should be able to throw a rock and hit one." I think that...actually most places have groups of people that enjoy sex. Not limited to the coasts. Even Ohio probably has sex! It's amazing what coast-to-coast railroads will do.
