J.B. and Joan are at dinner, and J.B. is complaining about how much a taxi medallion costs. Joan tells him that maybe that idea will have to wait, and J.B. says, "Yeah, just like everything else. I don't get it, how does anyone get anything started in the city?" Joan speaks from experience: "Well, you gotta start small, I guess. Find something that doesn't take a lot of start-up capital, or work for someone else and learn the business." Then she tells J.B. that he's young and shouldn't put so much pressure on himself, because he has time to figure it out, and then she offers him cash, if he ever needs it, to help get him started. J.B. thanks her but says he wishes he could start something on his own, "if I could ever figure out what it is." Joan rubs his hand suggestively and sympathetically.
Platypus arrives home with a bottle of wine and immediately calls J.B. "Hey, it's me. Call me the minute you get home -- ask for Valerie. [Tell me she didn't just say that!] I'll explain later. You know what, don't bother calling, just come over, it doesn't matter what time!" Some pathetic love song whines in the background as Platypus hums around her apartment.
Back at Joan's expensively decorated apartment, she's giving J.B. a back rub and telling him that he's "too young to have this many knots." Okay, we get it: you're robbing the cradle! No need to bludgeon the point to death! "I've just got a lot on my mind," he says by way of an explanation. Joan whispers in his ear, "I can help with that," and they make out.
Platypus pours out the last of her champagne-for-one into a water glass and puts her head in her hand.
Tony leads Sarah into his empty restaurant. She asks him suspiciously, "Where is everybody?" Tony explains that they are closed for inventory and pulls out her chair. Sarah asks why they are there if the restaurant is closed. Tony says that they have a lot to celebrate. Sarah suggests they go somewhere where there are people. Tony says that it's quieter, so they can talk. Sarah says that she's confused as to how he can be in the restaurant and music businesses at the same time. "Well, I've jumped around a lot of different jobs. I dabbled in construction [like cement-shoes construction? Oh, sorry, didn't mean to be "racist" there], real estate, vending machines." Sarah asks how he got into music. Tony tells her that music only came into his life "recently." Sarah says, "Really, when?" "When I saw you," he answers and nods at some unseen person who starts playing the violin. Sarah looks at him and tries to smile.
