We start off with saxophone from Julie Schmerbeck playing Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? We did. Then Saltine falls in love with a new straight man called Mark-we hear the obituaries of Caterina Hummus's past selves-we look into the future with Abhijeet and balk at the horrors of Sigourney Beaver's past performances!
