This was an OK episode. Not to take anything away from it, I should admit it wasn't painful to watch either. With some fine characters being underutilized and some others being shown the door, it's hard to fill in some laughable lines.
We see Sam break up with Owen in this episode. When you try to depict a guy as a perfect male, it does get a bit nauseating. I found him funny in the beginning, now I am just happy he's out. This will give Todd more screen time, who really has the potential to be a funny guy. Andrea was her usual self, trying to get Tony's attention, yet at the same time not going easy on her attitude. Dena got less screen time, and a lot of other characters like Frank, Howard, Chapman were missing.
The show is still trying to get somewhere. But will ABC wait?
