At a diner, we see Winston sitting outside in the truck while the boys sit down for food. Britt's idea of washing his hands involves an ice cube at the table. Highly sanitary. Britt breaks the news that "their client" can't have pets at work, so they've got to keep the dog until 7 PM. Now their job is apparently dogsitting. Not like they seemingly have much else to do. A second later Gretchen's name pops up on Hank's cell. Hank says he's paid alimony and advises Britt to ignore the call... which of course he doesn't. Loving Britt, he seems like trouble. He asks Gretchen what she's wearing, and the says that Hank isn't there. Of course she's right outside the window and can see Hank wildly gesturing for Britt to hang up.
Hank heads outside to face the music ("why do stars fall down from the sky... every time... you walk by") and Gretchen informs him that he looks terrible. He blames it on his Pilates instructor dying. OK, Hank is slowly becoming my hero, even with his schlubby plaid shirt and his scruffy hair. He may appear down on his luck, but he hasn't lost his sense of humor. He wants to know how she found him, but he's quite the creature of habit. He starts apologizing for writing the wrong month on his alimony check, and she sweetly smiles that she was flattered that he got the year right. She doesn't really care about the cash (red flag!) she's there because his old pal Mickey called from the police station. He was hoping that Hank had friends on the force that could help him out and Gretchen, being the kindhearted soul that she clearly is, didn't have the heart to set the poor guy (who was drunk and disorderly and arrested with a gun) straight, but she would really like it if Hank would maybe send out a mass email or something to his booze-loving pals so that they'd stop calling her all the time, since they haven't lived together in a year. Just as Hank's about to run off to help Mickey, Gretchen drops the bombshell that she's putting the house up for sale. She thinks it is time and she needs a change, and she waited until the day of the first open house to let Hank know. Given how he's clearly still in denial about the demise of this relationship, that was probably a wise move on her part.
