At The Regal Beagle, Cindy dumps Doug when his constant criticisms of her appearance becomes too much. And Cindy's waitress friend, Kelly, is quick to converse with her about the "evils of men". Cindy returns home preoccupied by Kelly's decision about marrying the father of the child she's bearing, and unwilling to discuss Doug, further arousing Jack's and Janet's curiosity.
