Nick and Don and TK and Rachel are in cabs on the way to the park where the Earth option is located. TK is rubbing his covered head; he's that stressed out. Nate and Jen get off the train and head upstairs. Out on the sidewalk, Nate once again argues in favor of taking a cab instead of the bus, and Jen once again won't listen, not really. She's like, "You're sure? Then let's take a cab." But the way she does it, all you can hear is the fact that she is going to totally, utterly blame him if this doesn't go well. And this causes him to freeze, so now, they're just standing there arguing. Finally, she just says, "You need to step up and make the decision." He's kind of confused by this, since she was totally refusing to listen to him just...recently. "You need to make the decisions right now. Please, you're the man!" And it's not like "you da man," either. It's like, "You are the man, and I am the woman, and therefore, when the going gets tough, I reserve the right to pull my petticoat over my head and shut down completely." This from the woman who so objected to being told that her femininity meant she should be able to string flowers. So Nate says, predictably, "I can't stand you." Then they fight, and it sounds like there's a real swear that's blotted out, like he might say either "you're a fucking shrew" or "you're a fucking shrimp," either of which would be hilarious, but neither of which I believe he actually said. But he said something that certainly wasn't "holy schneikies." He tells her flat-out that she's the one who wanted to take the subway in the first place, and now she's trying to put it on him. They don't like each other. Break up, you guys.
When we get back from commercials, we rejoin their argument already in progress. Having argued until they couldn't think straight, they get on the bus instead of getting a cab, which is even stupider than getting on the subway in the first place. "You are such a poor teammate," he says to her. And then she says, "Thanks a lot for ruining my frickin' birthday."
