Ben and Kate: Tommy & Lila; Ben's New Partner

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

BJ having a dog came from nowhere and I can't decide how I feel about it. Her very poor memory, on the other hand, I completely believe. I know it's difficult to schedule children to have large parts in television shows, but I really like Maddie and was a little sad that she's not really part of this episode. I also don't particularly care for Lila... maybe as we learn more about her? I'm also not a fan of Ben becoming a successful entrepreneur - I think part of his appeal is that he's all over the place and doesn't know what he wants to do. Having him "mature" already is a bit of a bummer, really. Don't you think?

Ben and Kate "Girl Problems" (S01E11): Tommy introduces his girlfriend, Lila, to Kate. [haha at Tommy leaving because he's worried about an explosion and Maddie being left alone with all of them in one place. Reminds me of the episode of Mad About You where Paul and Jamie plan to take different flights for Mabel's sake.] BJ tells Kate to be friendly to Lila, so she randomly shows up and asks her to hang out. [horribly awkward!] While shooting pool, Kate soon lets it slip that Tommy was obsessed with her for ten years. [omg she's SO awkward!] The next day, Tommy is mad at Kate so she apologizes, though she has to sneak over to Lila's so the woman would listen. [using the mail man??]

Ben has good credit but has trouble getting a loan big enough to handle Rail Mall, so he starts looking for a serious CEO with whom to partner. Soon he's chatting up people at a party and a woman is interested in him... but only physically. He confronts her about her motives and they come up with a way to make his idea work - center it around subways and other mass transit systems and have people order food that is handed to them when they get off the train at a specific station. [that's an entirely separate idea altogether!] Ben, happy again, jumps right back to the physical. [so I guess we're really going forward with Ben as an entrepreneur??]
