It's Mother's Day in the United States -- except, that is, in Santa Royale, California. After the Dharma Initiative suffered its mysterious "Incident," no one could have anymore children. In fact, there are no mothers in Santa Royale (unless you count Mrs. Good who stole her husband via email, but what kind of mother is that?). Sad really. Especially when we spent the entire week watching Dr. Adrian Corey's biological clock furiously ticking away. Ever since her fiance Ted turned out to be a bigamist delinquent on his child support, she's been suffering from a lot of self doubt and gorging herself on a lot of cupcakes.
In a desperate effort to help his daughter lose her appetite, Jeff Corey suggested that she join Mary and him at the Bum Boat for dinner. Despite Adrian's attempts to dodge that bullet, Mary showed up at the hospital eager to meddle.
Finally, Adrian had no choice but to insinuate that she had other plans. She didn't exactly lie; she simply grasped onto another desperate romantic fantasy. Of course, living in Crazyland is better than another dinner at the Bum Boat.
