Episode Summary

Here's why you should stay out of coffee shops if you don't drink coffee
Intro: Florence narrates as Molly waits for a job interview at an advertising agency. Molly meets her garbage man, Nick Donnatello, played by the show's creator, Jay Tarses; Nick asks her on a date and she declines. Davey tells her that Fred visited in the morning and that her mother is upstairs waiting for her. Molly's mother is cleaning her cabinets and tells Molly that she's staying over and going to a doctor for tests the next day but she won't talk about what kind of tests. No one but Molly knows that she's going for tests. Fred calls and asks Molly to meet him. Molly meets him at the planetarium, where he's composing music for a planetarium show. He asks for her help. He's convinced that an album and fame and fortune will follow. She refuses to help. Fred invites her for coffee at Spiro's and she goes along. It is apparently "their" old place; people greet them as if they're still a couple. The guys from the "old gang" (The Fred Dodd Quintet?) show up. Molly greets them as she leaves. She goes home and climbs the stairs. She finds Davey in her apartment talking with her mother, who has apparently told him about the tests she's getting but still won't tell Molly. Molly drops her mom off at the hospital. She goes home and there's a call on her machine from Nick. She calls Fred with some ideas for his composition.moreless
