Jack, Laurie, David, and Jenny return from a rousing game of doubles tennis. Laurie chides Jenny for missing such an easy lob to lose the game. Jack suspects that they took a dive. Jenny cops to losing on purpose in order to butter them up for her pitch: she thinks that David is such a great lay that he deserves to be promoted to Junior VP of partying down. After all, he's been co-managing the club with Laurie and Jenny for almost a month now. From David's shocked expression, it's obvious that this is the first he's heard of it. Laurie and Jack aren't so sure, either. Jenny attempts to persuade them with the logic that she's been clean and sober for almost twenty-four hours now and it's all thanks to David. Jack promises to think about it. Jenny, a horrible judge of character, hops around giggling, knowing that the promotion is "in the bag." She and David get a little smooching in while Laurie lurks inside, staring at the two through the window.
Samantha opens her apartment door to discover Heather standing there. She heard that Samantha was sick, and rushed right over with some soup. What's with this show and soup? Do they think they're The View, or something? Heather voices her concern that Peter also called in sick and, wouldn't you know it, Peter comes to the door wondering who's there. Wasn't Heather intent on staying in bed all day? What's she doing in the wrong part of town, already? Heather feigns surprise at Peter's being there, but Peter couldn't care less if people know about their relationship. Heather understands if Samantha's concerned about appearances. Last she heard, office romances were verboten. Great -- now the writers are going to start sticking German in everywhere. And if office romances were forbidden, then what's going on with Heather/Richard, Jenny/David, Heather/Chandler, David/Laurie, Gwen/Jack and Peter/the guy who delivers the bagels in the morning? Heather tells Peter not to worry -- she's a changed woman, and her lips are zipped. Satisfied, Peter returns to the bathroom, forgetting to gauge her comments with his Phillips Sarcastometer. After Heather leaves, Peter suggests they dump the soup and get back to the consommé. But there'll be no more sex for Petey right now, since Samantha's got to get to work to keep an eye on Heather.
