When Bernard (guest star Richard
Cummings, Jr.) arrives with his girlfriend, Anne McGrath (guest star Lisa
Darr), she reveals that she and Chris lived together for six months during
the year that he doesn't remember. At first, the three of them bond, then Anne
lets it slip that they both are very similar in the bedroom. Dwelling on the
loss of his uniqueness, Chris finally overcomes his distress by finding one
key difference between himself and Bernard - Bernard loves Anne while he has
no interest in her.
When Joel absentmindedly
leaves his wallet on the pool table in the Brick, he begins to realize that
he has lost his New York animal instincts. He tries to delve into his memory
and bring it all back, but is devastated to find out that he can't remember
specific streets and subways that were once emblazoned on his brain. Although
Maggie gives him the thought-provoking explanation that he is outgrowing his
immature infatuation with New York, Joel finds his true miserable self again
in an intense battle with a VCR repairman.
Marilyn is the
heartbreaker of Cicely when she blows off Ted the electrician (guest star Tim
Sampson) after one very successful date. Even though they have a lot in
common, including a love for dogs, children, and Nintendo, she ditches him with
no explanation. After much confusion, Joel learns she has been snooping through
everyone's medical files and doesn't want to continue dating Ted because he
had one case of impotence in 1985.
Anne and Chris met at a feminist deconstruction conference at Northwestern.
Chris got a tattoo during his time with Anne. It reads "Forever." (Hmmm, I never
noticed it before.) Marilyn's new boyfriend is TED BANKS, an affable Native
American, electrician. Ted has an incident of sexual dysfunction in '85. She
previously dated another local, FLOYD, who she ditched when she found out he
had a heart murmur. Chris reads from Dostoyesvsky's "The Double." Joel talks
on the phone with a lawyer friend, Clifford, who he went to Bronx Science with.
