It's the next morning, and we see that Scraggle's bathtub-shower is conveniently located in his living room, making it easy for Scraggle to watch Sarah's silhouette through the fairly see-through curtain. Sarah is getting all holier-than-thou about her fight with Platypus, saying that it's really ridiculous and sad to start a new millennium alone and angry at the world. Scraggle is just muttering "mm-hmm" to everything Sarah says, because he's concentrating on trying not to watch her shape through the curtain. Sarah pokes her head (and what looks like a good part of her body) around the curtain and says, "Hey, Magoo?" (Oh, my God. Please pass the scotch. Uh, I mean, the ylang-ylang essential oil. I need soothing.) "Do you want to spend New Year's Eve together? Come on, I've got a great bottle of champagne. And we can go to a club or something. Maybe go dancing." Of course, Scraggle says, "Sounds good." I mean, what else can he say with her dinners right there in front of him? Sarah giggles, says it's a plan and gets out of the shower, wrapped in a towel. There's a knock at the door, and Sarah, suddenly uncharacteristically modest, says, "Wait, hold on a minute," and darts into the bathroom. Why the bathtub-shower is not located in there, we will never know. ["I have to say in the show's defense that that is a realistic New-York-City-real-estate detail." -- Sars] Scraggle answers the door to find a very angry Joss on the other side of it. "Well, I just got fired!" Joss announces. Scraggle asks why, and Joss tells him it's because she spent all that time at the police station with him when she was supposed to be working. Joss accuses Scraggle of making her stay at the station out of spite when there was nothing she could do to help. She goes on to say that the police won't bother doing anything about getting back the one thousand dollars' worth of stuff he lost. Scraggle, stung, says, "It wasn't just stuff, it was my guitar." Joss corrects him: "The guitar Jessica bought you." Scraggle says, "Yes." And Joss asks him to give her a break since he hasn't touched the guitar in two years and now he's getting sentimental about it? Unnoticed by Joss and Scraggle, Sarah opens the bathroom door just as Scraggle says, "You know what, the next time you are the last one out of bed in the morning, lock the damn door behind you!" Then Scraggle and Joss both notice a wet-haired Sarah standing there; Sarah says, "Hi, Joss." Joss gives Scraggle a meaningful look and says, "Hi." Sarah says she's going to be late for work and moves to collect her clothes.
