George Christopher: "Are you sure you don't want to switch?"
George may have referring to Jonathan's avocado-laden meal, but he could just as easily have been summing up this week's episode. Which of our leading men—socially isolated, sexually frustrated, and yes, bored to death—wouldn't want to switch lives with someone else?
Take nebbish hero Jonathan, who hits his first rough patch with Stella when she proposes a polyamorous relationship. Jonathan feebly protests ("We need to talk about this for months and never act on it!"), but it isn't long before he's fighting for spooning time with Stella's ex Warren. Warren is everything Jonathan isn't: vulgar, obese, and sexually confident. And not without reason—his (apparently enormous) member is enough to make Jonathan feel that he is literally the least-endowed man in the world.
Jonathan's sexual insecurity is manifested in this week's case, when he's hired by Richard Antrem (guest star Oliver Platt) to catch his cheating wife in the act. Antrem is both a rival publisher and the current husband of George's ex-wife Priscilla (Laila Robins), so Jonathan is reluctant to take the case, but as always, his empty wallet and poor judgment are too powerful to overcome.
