The plan to test Myrna's hypothesis is mighty convoluted and contains its own weaknesses. (For example, what if he also asks Myrna out on one date and never calls again? Or what if he's totally down for dumping his current girlfreind for Myrna, but knows better than to say so in front of Ellen, who was NOT worth it?) But as nothing but an audience, I look forward to this setup scene...assuming Philip can even be lured in at all.
Ed, that poor suburban Dad, had no idea what he was getting into here.
