The doorbell rings and it’s Stan and his brother. The girls come in the living room and Dorothy is thrilled to see Ted. Rose is still confused. When Dorothy announces that Ted is a doctor, Blanche suddenly becomes interested in him. Once she learns he’s divorced she practically sits in his lap. She asks him out. He tells her no, but Stan says go ahead. They return and he tries to go while she wants him to stay over. She throws herself at him and he turns her down. Rose comes out, she still can’t sleep.

They make up. Sophia comes in with something to help Rose sleep. She made a Sicilian sleeping potion. Dorothy doesn’t think it would work. She takes a sip and then faints.
