Kit & Benjamin
Heres a surprise, Kit and Benjamin, the TOE guy are out on a date. Well, not a real date, see he has a family and hes just lonely on the road. Kit understands. Shes been there too. But then its time to say goodbye. Benjamin lunges in for a kiss. Kit kisses back, but I dont see the chemistry. Not like with Ivan.
Tina & Alice
Tina is moving into her new apartment and Alice is offering a helping hand. Where did they get those clashing flowered jumpers? As the two practice air guitar to Pat Benetar, Helena Peabody walks in. Anybody notice how much she resembles Bette? She just stopped by to drop off some paperwork. What, Helena Peabody cant afford a courier service? Im suspicious. So is Alice. She wants to know if Tina and Helena are sleeping together. No, Tina says, leaving out the not yet.
Dana & Alice
Dana and Alice hook up for breakfast. Well, not that kind of hook up. Actually Dana wants Alice to take her home, but Alice is having none of that. She wants Dana to break it off with Tonya first. Alice is not about to be a backdoor woman. But Dana cant leave Tonya, not yet. Tomorrow is the big celebrity tennis tournament that Tonya organized. Dana promises to break it off after that.
Bette & Tina
Bette drops by unannounced at Tinas new apartment. Helena got a much warmer welcome. I wish you would have called first, she says. But Bette wants to talk and Tina does not want to listen. Bette wants to know how Tina could have kept her pregnancy from her. Uh, Bette, its kind of easy to keep things from you when you close your eyes and hum, La, la, la, I cant hear you But Bette really stopped by to say she wants to be part of the babys life. And Tinas too. Right now, Tina has her eyes closed and is humming, La, la, la, Helena Peabody is hot.
Carmen & Shane
Carmen and Shane are flirting like mad, spilling beer and licking it off each others bodies. Jenny walks in to warn them Mark is filming the girls. A bunch of hot dykes are in the living room and Mark is asking them important questions, like would they make out with a man for a million dollars. Its all for research, of course. Remind me why they thought having this guy move in was a good idea. Shane gets cozy with one of the girls and Carmen grabs Jenny to go on a beer run.
Shane & the Delivery Girl
A girl named Betty shows up with flowers for Shane. Betty? I hope she doesnt break out into the theme song. No, shes just the delivery girl. But Shane is so hot, how can she resist? Next thing you know, theyre on the couch. Yes, Mark had something to do with this. When Gomie complains that hes focusing on her face, Mark says she wants to capture how Shane is feeling. Oh, youre so sensitive Mark, you slimy little worm.
Jenny & Charlotte
Jenny visits writing teacher Charlotte at the gym. Shes giving Jenny writing advice. At the gym? Well, I guess it has been a while since Ive been in college. Anyway, she tells Jenny not to talk for a whole day and write about her experience. Good move, Charlotte. Just in time for Jennys date with Carmen. With nothing to say to each other, they have not option but to kiss. Carmen is hot, but Im not feeling it. Are you?
The Tennis Tournament
Alice and Shane hike it down to La Jolla for Danas big celebrity tennis tournament. Plus to try to sneak in a bit of nookie and get Dana to break it off with Tonya. I cant believe they didnt drag this one out longer. Dana actually breaks it off with Tonya. And we expect Tonya to freak out, but she doesnt. Because she found someone more famous than Dana Fairbanks. She found Melissa Rivers. Dana stares slack-jawed as Tonya and Melissa leave, presumably so Tonya can go meet her even more famous mother, Joan.
Tina & Helena
Tina and Helena are at the Peabody Awards dinner. Helena leaves the table and calls Tina on her cell phone. She wants Tina to meet her by the pool. What is it about pregnancy that makes Tina so desirable? Remember what I said about Tina not sleeping with Helena yet. Strike the yet.
Alice & Dana & Shane
So now Alice & Dana are free to be together, why arent they all over each other? And why is Shane laughing in the back seat? For these answers and more, tune in next week.
