Lou is three and half hours late coming back from lunch, in the process missing an appointment. He implies that he didn't actually eat, but makes up an excuse regarding his whereabouts and the reason for being so late. He finally confides in Mary and Murray that because things have been bad between himself and Edie, they have been going to see a marriage counselor. Lou doesn't like the outcome of the process: the counselor is suggesting a trial separation. As such, Edie is planning on moving out of the house. Leading up to her leaving, the gang at the office don't know what to say to Lou. Before she leaves, Lou tries to understand why she feels the need to leave.
