And so Sarah, the most sought-after girl in New York, arrives home cradling her new gifts to her face and finds Maguire and his bags waiting on her doorstep. Maguire explains that the heat is off in his apartment for the next thirty-six hours, and he was wondering if he could stay with her. Sarah asks him if there isn't someone else with whom he would rather stay, which I think is a rude question, because he wouldn't be crouched on her doorstep if there were others he preferred. Maybe his family and friends don't want him, or maybe he doesn't have family or friends and her just bringing it up is rubbing salt in the wound. There's a back-and-forth of "if it's too much trouble" and "no, it's really no trouble" for a bit before Sarah drags Scraggle in by his ear and throws him on the couch. (Apparently, Romy is out of town.) Scraggle tells Sarah she won't even know he's there. This seems to disconcert Sarah as she closes the door.
The strip-tease act must have worked, because Sarah has graciously allowed Spencer to take her out to a brightly-lit, chi-chi restaurant for lunch. Sarah is going on and on about Jerry The Homeless Music Man and the gifts he gave her, and she shows him the piece of paper Jerry wrapped them in, which turns out to be a news clipping with a picture of Jerry in a tux. After kvetching a bit at Sarah for talking about another man in his presence, Spencer shrewdly observes that the picture is credited to Newsweek magazine. Sarah's intelligent comment: "Whoa, that's weird." Suddenly, Spencer spies someone in the restaurant and tells Sarah not to look up but to look busy eating. "It's Ashley," he explains. Ashley comes over and jabbers to Spencer for a while (Spencer calls her "Mom" sarcastically) about baby furniture and how he has to come over and see it and how dinner has been moved up to three-thirty and how "we're sorry you can't invite your friend, but," here she rubs her very pregnant stomach, "we're overflowing already. I've got to go, your father's waiting." She leaves, and Spencer says, "Did I mention she's six months pregnant?" To sum up: Spencer's pappy married a pregnant blond bimbette the same age as his own son. No wonder Spencer's mom/Sarah's ex-boss was less than gracious when speaking of her ex-husband.
