The episode was about letting go. Whitney and Neal kicked it off down in the basement as they found a box of one of Alex's old girlfriend's things.
Neal: Is this stuff yours?
Whitney: No, I don't wear scrunchies or short-shorts or tube-tops. You know what this means? Somewhere Heather Graham is naked.
Mark was hilarious. Lily was tense and walking on egg shells because she and Roxanne are roommates and she's living in fear of doing something wrong that makes Roxanne stop being her friend.
So when Lily accidentally breaks several things, she calls Mark and asks him, "You really think you can fix all of this?'" Mark replies, "Lily, I'm a guy. I will never admit that I can't fix something."
So finally he gets Lily to break one of Roxanne's plates. Then another. Then another. Then Roxanne breaks a plate and Mark gets very turned on.
"I'm not going to lie you guys, this is really working for me. Who wants to take their shirt off? He raises his hand as he asks that last question.
But Neal walks in so it doesn't get "amazing between the three of us" as Mark had hoped. But Neal's returning Lily's lotion (not really, it's a trick Whitney gave him so he could go talk to her) and Mark grabs the lotion and says, "I would like to point out that a new bottle of lotion has been thrown into the mix."
Mark really is sexy. If there was a vote for sexiest guy on TV this year, I'd vote for him.
