Sarah is visiting Cecilia at the hospital again. Cecilia awakens with a jolt and sees Sarah, who tells her she brought her some magazines. Cecilia tells her that she didn't expect to see her again. Sarah responds, "I can feel bad for you without feeling responsible." Cecilia tells Sarah that she has been her only visitor the whole time she has been in the hospital. Sarah changes the subject, because God forbid she try and sympathize with anyone: "So, the nurse says they're letting you out of here tomorrow." Cecilia says, "I should be released in just about enough time to drop out of next semester without losing my deposit." Sarah tells Cecilia not to think about that right now. Cecilia muses that she was six months away from getting her second degree, and then she screwed up by letting someone cough on her, and now she may never finish school. I don't think Sarah even knows what it's like to be two years away from getting her first degree, so she offers to go over to Cecilia's apartment to clean things up for her. Cecilia tells her not to do anything for her and turns over on her side, away from Sarah.
Platypus and JB are in JB's apartment, preparing Chinese take-out on plates. Platypus seems a little distracted. Apparently she can't get past the idea of Joan and JB's relationship: "I mean, she's gotta be what? Forty?" JB asks her not to "do this" and says again that he and JOan are just friends and Joan is trying to help him get a job. Platypus then launches into the third degree about all the expensive presents Joan bought JB. JB says it's not how it sounds; they were only presents. Platypus then says, "Is that why you work there? You're a young, sexy guy and there are all these rich women, like this Joan person, who can buy you expensive things like suits or watches or VCRs, and I'm guessing they're not doing it out of the kindness of their hearts, so it must be for the sex, right?" JB insists that he and Joan had a relationship. Platypus says she doesn't know how to deal with this, and JB says there's nothing to deal with, and that it wasn't like they didn't care about each other, because they did. Platypus, getting more and more hysterical and her lips getting more and more puffy, says, "But getting stuff was part of it, which means that you are the kind of person to use sex to -- it's horrible!" Platypus says she doesn't think she can see JB anymore and leaves. Question: Just how hypocritical can someone be? Cast your memory back to the second episode of the season (that is, if you can bear to) when Platypus suggests that Sarah sleep with Spencer in order to get a bonus. I'm guessing that when it's her pathetic sex life that's in question, Platypus has the right to act like Pope Pius IV.
