Booty Call!

Norman: The mating season has arrived. The birds. The bees. And I got myself a date!

Norman, apparently, had the best date of his life with some guy named Charles, newly arrived from Los Angeles, who lives just around the corner. ["This would be Charles Perez, former Ricki Lake show producer, and host of a short-lived eponymous talk show of his own. Apparently he's straight now." -- Wing Chun] Becky and Julie look disgusted. I think they're pissed because Norman isn't jealous of their vacation. Becky tells Norman he's on Cloud Nine.

Norman says that the weekend was great, and now he's in a bit of a relationship. And that he's very happy. He looks ecstatic.

Uh-oh. The aftermath of the Kevin and Becky fight. Julie looks uncomfortable. Becky tells Kevin that things turning into a fight are fine, but not when it hits a certain level at which she can't say anything to him. Kevin apologizes for calling her a bitch, but not really. He says he knows that it's not the right thing for a man to call a woman that. Right. Whatever. Kevin still says he thinks they need to talk. Becky says that Kevin needs to understand that she wasn't insulting his life or where he was coming from, but was trying to communicate where she was coming from. She then says abruptly that she's starving, and asks whether Kevin wants to eat with her?

Becky thinks things are resolved, while Kevin doesn't, but he feels comfortable talking to her.

Norman enters the room with take-out. They all decide to go out to eat. The next few minutes are taken up with total filler of Kevin, Norman and Heather having a water gun fight.

Next shot is of Becky, telling us how she sucked Bill, the ex-director, through the fourth wall, and now he's living in their realm. Shots of them at the Dew Drop Inn and Bill looking muy, muy uncomfortable as he looks at the cameramen and says, "I know you. And you, and you," and Becky tells him he has to ignore them and pretend that they're not there. Becky says she doesn't blame him for being uncomfortable.

Next episode: Sex and the Single Man. We deal with Norman and his relationship issues, and Julie digs into the homelessness issue with both hands. The latter is handed almost touchingly, except that Phil Collins rears his ugly head.
