Carmen's shopping for gig vests at Wax, Max and Shane are gonna be butch and help the ladies out with their luggage, Bette's had just about enough of Tina's petty bourgeois anxiety and everybody is very clear about their intentions to attend a dinner tonight in honor of Jenny and male lobsters, who behave better than female lobsters while in a pot together.
