Majestic City Council. Doug's been brought before the board for an unpaid loan that was made to "Aguatecture" (Conrad and Heylia's fountain-house front). Doug tries to "repay" that loan with a post-dated personal check ("read the memo line -- it says 'for Aguatecture'). He even throws in some Jesus-freak-baiting for good measure. Councilwoman Ann (played by Sam McPherson's mom) ain't buying it, but the rest of the council members love those fountains, so once again due to the incredible doofitude of a city council, Doug Wilson skates free.
Celia's house. Isabelle feeds Dean dinner while Celia looks miserable and unshowered. And whether it's the fact that she's right back where she started, with a man who can't do anything for her and a daughter who despises her, or the sad looking chicken pot pie on her dinner plate, Celia starts crying. Sobbing. Wailing. Isabelle looks nonplussed and hands her mom a napkin.
Finally, since Nancy's feeling like a terrible, shitty, worthless person, I guess it's about time for her to slink up against Sullivan again. She drunkenly (? -- it's so hard to tell with MLP sometimes) wanders into his conference room and tells him she's quitting. He's pissed at her, but he doesn't want her to quit. She says if he were a real man, he'd nail her right on the conference table. Instead, he angrily grabs her, places a hand over her mouth, and takes her from behind. She's totally into it. On the surface. Lord knows the rivers of self-hatred going on down below. But it looks like she's going to have company in hating herself, since Celia's in the doorway -- in her hot red dress and holding a plate of delicious cupcakes, the poor sucker -- watching the whole disgusting show. And you know I love Nancy, but: git 'er, Celia!
