Back at the party, Susan asks Trina, "It wasn't a coincidence, you putting me with Roger, was it?" Trina replies, "I thought you'd make a good team. Evidently I was right." Susan pries about Bruce and Melinda, and Trina admits she has no idea how those two ended up teamed up, as Bruce was supposed to be with Gail. Speaking of whom, she's just been called out by Invisible Stu, who blares off-camera, "You're a slut, Gail!" I hope poor Sam doesn't get blamed for this. Gail dithers for a moment before racing off-screen while calling, "Hon-neeeeeee!" Trina and Susan share a mutual eye-rolling moment, and Trina comments, "Guess things don't always work out the way you imagined, no matter how carefully you plan them." Susan lies through her teeth with, "Roger is my best friend's husband. I don't want to think that you see something happening there that isn't." Trina instantly gets why Susan's upset, and reassures her, "All I saw was a great team that could win it all if they wanted to." Susan wanly replies, "Winning isn't everything." Trina gives her an Oh, honey look.
Janet comes sprinting back in with another puzzle piece, so it looks like there's now a tie between several teams for first place. Trina has a tie-breaker question ... which Janet bellows out: "Every marriage needs re-orienting when the skies get bumpy. Sometimes, the right gesture can make the flight as smooth as silk." Going by the rueful looks on Trina and Tom's faces, I'd say it's their clue. Janet thinks so too -- she corners Tom to ask if he and Trina had a fight recently, and he guiltily replies, "Yeah, kind of." Grant Show's delivery throughout this episode has been comic gold. I admit: back in the Melrose Place days, he came off as little more than a slab of muscle with hair, but let's just blame the material, issue the apology to Grant Show, and move on to acknowledge that he's a deft comedic actor. Janet heads off to find the kimono Tom brought back from Tokyo for an apology. She's grinning, and her enthusiasm makes Tom and Trina grin too.
