Roger and Lucy meet at a convention. Daphne and Nick break down at a diner. Ethan continues to read compulsively from his new book, The Car Accident. As the Doctor/Waiters spin around us (not to mention the Old Woman on the phone with Lucy) it's soon apparent that reality is slippery, time is shifting, and we join our characters struggle with their own discovery about love, opportunity, and a desire to pause with trepidation as they try to articulate who and what they actually love
