Paul, trying to unclog the toilet in his office, argues with his wife, Kate, before Laura arrives. Once their session begins, however, he’s a bit shocked to find out that she plans to marry Andrew. She picks up on Paul’s “killjoy” attitude and tells him she only agreed to marry Andrew because the therapist declined her advances. Paul tries to analyze himself out of the uncomfortable situation, asking questions about a family Laura lived with as a teenager, but she comes back harder, asking, “Do you want me?” On his heels, Paul tells her no.
