Here's one of I am sure many ways in which Ireland is better than the United States: there's a small convenience store called "It's Dead Handy." With a name like that, how can Caroline & Jennifer resist stopping in to ask directions for The Thing with the Ring? The elderly proprietor tells them about something called the Giant's Ring and draws them a little map. At some point he looks deeply into Jennifer's eyes and says intensely, "You'll never meet a man like me." Without missing a beat, Jennifer deadpans, "I know, you're great. Too bad we can't be together." Her heart belongs to Jim the bagpiping instructor, after all.
At the dry dock, Bates correctly serves a first course of oysters while Max is delivering his third course. Beth comes in, finds her correct table, locates the correct diners by their place markers and gets right to work laying out what she thinks is their first course, but is actually their second. "This is not what they ordered," says that table's headwaiter. Beth classes the joint up with a hearty, "Aw, crap. I mean, darn." Foghorn of failure. Also, she mispronounced "consommÃ©."
At the top of the stairs, Katie hands Max the fourth course of asparagus, which is the same for everyone and which turns out to be correct for them as well. Two courses behind them, Anthony brings the tray of soup to where Bates is waiting at the top of the stairs. As Bates heads back down, we hear him interviewing that the trays might not seem that heavy, but carrying them up and down the stairs and half the length of the Titanic at a run adds up. He delivers the soup with his compliments ("lovely guests") and heads back, figuring he's on a roll. Only the Titanic didn't roll; it pitched.
Mona is loading up another tray of soup, still thinking that's her first course no matter how many times the Amazing Editors show us the menu board with the oysters highlighted. She hands Beth a new tray with some soup and some dessert. Oh, dear. Soon Beth is trying to awkwardly crowd two plates in front of diners as her headwaiter says, "This is not what these people ordered." Beth looks disappointed, but this is far from the worst thing that happened to the people who actually ate this dinner, so let's keep it in perspective.
Katie brings Max the tray carrying the fifth and final course, a dessert that includes Waldorf pudding and sliced peaches. Bringing the third course to the top of the stairs, Anthony trips over a crane track and spills the lot on the ground. Nothing for it but to go back for more with the empty tray. When Bates reaches the top of the stairs and sees the mess, he asks Katie who it was. She tattles on Anthony, causing Bates to groan, "Come on, he's got the frickin' easy part!" Don't worry, Bates is going to start evening that out soon.
