He had a clinging woman who would not leave. He didn't like her for a number of reasons but his complaint to Whitney was that she mispronounced a word. Alex, who can't stand to see a woman cry and feels fortunate that Whitney got all of her tears out years ago, agrees to help him.
But they walk over to Mark's only to discover the woman watching "Marley & Me" for the first time. It's the last 20 minutes and Marley's sick, the woman wanted to know that Marley gets well. Alex bailed.
So it was left to Lily to tell the woman to get out. Mark got her to agree and told the woman that Lily was his wife but she cut him off and told the woman the truth. It was a funny scene and even with plain lines ("Cute as a button"), Lily's funny.
Mark ran out after the woman. He wanted her after she left.
Big complaint about the episode? The last scene with Mark. That shirt did not work.
