Back at the morgue, Marco 2.0 is telling Tru that he just cleaned out the truck, so don't mess it up if she takes it out. Yeah, you don't want straw wrappers on the floor or anything when you're driving in to pick up some guy with his face blown off. Marco 2.0 wanders off, just as Luc comes wandering in with his third hairstyle in as many episodes. Tru stupidly asks Luc what he's doing there so they can remind us that he works there, too. Which also reminds us how stupid Tru's fears about dating him are. Stupid show. Anyway, after much hemming and hawing, Luc asks Tru out to dinner. I think Luc is wearing contacts that tint his irises purple. Tru hems and haws and finally agrees. Luc asks if tomorrow is okay. This inexplicably causes some sort of mental mini-crisis for Tru, because she doesn't know whether or not she's going to relive the day or something. This makes absolutely no sense, because if she relives the day, he'll ask her out again, and they can go out when tomorrow finally comes. She relives days, she doesn't skip them. Stupid show. Then Marco 2.0 comes wandering back in, telling her to take the truck now and go have her dinner break with Luc. He also claims they've been doing this "mating dance" thing for weeks now. Well, thank you for sparing me the unrealistic sight of two young, horny people trying to find excuses to not get it on.
Cut to a restaurant, where Tru and Luc are having their "date." Except they seem to have been seated near some sort of bussing station, and the sound of clattering plates and silverware is just so loud that they can barely hear each other. No, really. Really. Their date is being ruined by silverware. You can see the extras in the background -- they're just stacking and unstacking plates for no reason in order to make enough noise to drown out their conversation. Wait, why am I complaining? They make boring small talk about how Luc got into photography (he likes taking pictures, amazingly enough), and why Tru is still single (like, she just broke up with somebody recently, and why the hell does a woman have to have a reason why she doesn't have a boyfriend?). Tru responds with some comment by Lindsay that Tru always picks the biggest loser in a roomful of guys, before realizing that isn't exactly the smartest thing to say to the guy that you've decided to go out on a date with. She starts the whole "by 'loser,' I didn't mean you, of course" retraction, but then her cell phone rings. It's Lindsay, calling to whine about her awful experience with Boss Handsy. She rejected him, so he busted her down to secretary. Oh, poor Lindsay. You shouldn't have taken him all the way back to the '20s, before they had sexual harassment laws. You should just count yourself lucky that he didn't respond to your rejection by beating you with a rod the thickness of his thumb. Tru doesn't have time to say "multimillion-dollar lawsuit" what with Luc there, so she promises they'll "fix this" later. Could there be a clearer case? He comes on to her in a public location where there are likely witnesses to the fact that they were together, and he demotes her that very night? Part of the problem with this series, besides the wretched writing, is the ridiculous speed at which some things have to happen because each episode takes place in a single day. Meredith takes a drug test, it comes out positive, and she gets fired, all in one evening. Lindsay gets sexually harassed by her boss and demoted the instant she turns him down. It's ridiculous. This week's offer in my escalating list of promises to FOX: If you cancel this show, I will watch my local FOX news affiliate's 10 PM broadcast.
After Tru hangs up on Lindsay, a baby starts crying at a nearby table, and a careless waiter knocks Luc's drink over. For heaven's sake, we get it! Bad location in the restaurant! What next -- will the centerpiece spontaneously burst into flames? Then Tru's phone rings yet again. It's Davis, telling her Marco 2.0 has a pick-up and he needs her help. Tru says she wasn't aware that picking up bodies at the scene was part of her job description. Davis points out that nothing about this show is consistent, so why would her job description be any different? Plus, they still haven't given up on the idea that they can surprise us with the dead bodies talking. Tru apologizes to Luc for aborting their awful date. He doesn't seem to mind so much, what with the wine in his lap and stuff.
