We go to the NewNewport Group, which means it's time to fall asleep. For those who managed to stay awake and care about any of this, Matt prepares Sandy for their upcoming hospital presentation. You see, even though they won the Holodoc over last week, they still have to get the physicians' approval. Sandy makes it clear that this will be accomplished without the use of alcohol or strippers. The physicians are going to be very disappointed. Instead, Sandy wants to find a way to get through to the doctors how important this hospital will be to all those uninsured churro vendors. Matt brags that he has an in with the board of physicians: he knows the head of the board's daughter. "She's a stripper too?!" Sandy asks. I love how Sandy just assumes that Matt's only friends are strippers. Because it's totally true. Except in this case, as it turns out that Matt and the daughter went to college together. Matt notes that she always had a crush on him that he was apparently too cool to take her up on at the time. Maybe he could now, though. Sandy absolutely doesn't want to do business that way, and says so. He seems to think that this will be the first time Matt actually follows Sandy's orders. Keep the dream alive, Sandy. Meanwhile, I just had a dream about the color beige that was more interesting that that scene.
Dr. Neil is spending a quiet day at home reading a medical text with a self-satisfied grin that makes me think that he's looking at pictures of women with huge fake boobs for "research" purposes. His Playboy subscription is tax-deductible. The housekeeper lets Julie in for yet another unannounced visit. Julie politely thanks Dr. Neil for hosting Kaitlin's crappy party and has a present for him: a bunch of eligible Newport women for him to date. Dr. Neil's just a little too eager to accept the gift. He looks through the album and is quite pleased with his choices, despite Julie's transparent attempts to point out each one's flaws.
Kaitlin is waiting in the poolhouse when Ryan gets home from school. You'd think a guy who originally came from such a rough neighborhood would be a little bit more concerned about personal security and would at least lock his doors, but not Ryan. He just leaves them wide open all day and night long. Ryan's not thrilled to see Kaitlin, and asks her when she's going back to school, in a tone that suggests that he's looking forward to the day. "As soon as my guest star contract runs out," Kaitlin explains, and then gets to the reason she stopped by: Marissa. Well, of course. Kaitlin wants Johnny, but Johnny wants Marissa and seems to think he still has a chance with her. Which may not be so crazy, since Marissa won't say that she doesn't have any feelings for Johnny. Ryan insincerely thanks Kaitlin for the information as he tries to escort her out, but she isn't finished shit-stirring yet. She demands that Ryan take care of her problems for her, preferably using violence. Wow, she really is Marissa's sister. Kaitlin claims that they will both benefit, since Ryan will know where he and Marissa really stand, and Johnny will finally realize that he has no chance with Marissa and hook up with her sister instead. Why would you even want a guy who only wants you because he couldn't get your sister?
