To view this sketch you'll need RealPlayer.


Susan has invited everyone over for dinner, which as we know is just asking for trouble.

Steve is particularly worried because Susan has recently redecorated the bathroom, and removed the lock, thus robbing him of his Fortress of Solitude. Sally's worry is that Patrick is bringing his new girlfriend: she's frightened that she will overcompensate her feelings of hostility towards her new rival by being embarrassingly nice. Patrick dimly perceives there might be a problem, so has told Jennifer that Sally is a lesbian.

Jennifer turns out to be Sally's worst nightmare: "slim and interesting." She pays Jennifer so many compliments that Jennifer assumes Sally is making a pass at her. Over dinner, Sally is horrified to discover that Jennifer thinks she is a lesbian. She furiously blurts out, in front of everyone, that it's Patrick she's mad about, not Jennifer. Ouch.

The Wisdom of Jeff: "Sally could be a lesbian! ...It could happen! She could be having a shower maybe. and probably Jane would be there. And she might happen to say, 'Jane, could you help me soap my breasts?'. 'Your breasts, Sally?' 'Yes, Jane, it's those tricky undersides.' 'Oh, I know what you mean, Sally, breasts can be a real dirt-trap.'"


Most embarrassing moment:
Poor Sally. Not only has she told Patrick that she loves him, publicly, when she is certain that he doesn't feel the same way, and her precious friendship will be ruined forever. She also has to live with the knowledge that Jeff will spend the rest of his life using her as the star of his lesbian fantasies.

Quick question:In this episode, Jane develops an unhealthy obsession with a man who does what for a living?
