"No Man Is An Iceland" Season 2, Episode 3

The news that Jack and Lynn are done makes it around town in record time. Everyone assumes they'll be back together in a flash, but I must admit I'm glad Marin isn't ready to forgive and forget so easily. Of course they belong together, but like every other TV couple, they must overcome great odds before they can settle into happy-couple blissdom. But one of those obstacles seems to be leaving town. Cash is a man of very few words and apparently one of them isn't goodbye. His abrupt departure from Marin's life made me a laugh a little. It's just like a guy to up and leave like that. Pipe down, I'm not complaining: I'm just observing. Cash is feeling like he's been domesticated by Marin and that's not a feeling he enjoys. He sets off with very little fanfare only to have Jack stumble upon his tent in the woods. Sharing close quarters with a sickly Marin results in her passing around the flu bug. When Cash asks Jack to go to Marin and get some of her miracle soup, Jack doesn't think he can bring himself to do it. But he does and they have a nice little exchange. With Cash cured the next day, he sets off once again. Another uncoupled couple looks to take their relationship to the next level. Actually George, back in town scouting a location for his fat camp, wants to get more serious, but Terry says he likes things casual. At least that's how he says he feels, until George is suddenly not so available. Wanting to help Mai's cousin Lucy Wu, the ice-dancing sensation extraordinaire, George offers to help her get a green card through marriage. Suddenly Terry isn't so keen on keeping things casual. George backs out of marrying Lucy Wu, saying she deserves the real thing. She understands that George wants to save himself for Terry. In other cute-couples news, Annie and Patrick's wedding plans hit some major snags. Not only do they both want Marin to stand up for them but Patrick's crazy sensibilities are threatening to ruin Annie's vision of their wedding. Was I the only one who laughed out loud when Patrick mentioned that whole monster-truck thing? I don't think I could stand for that either, but it's nice to see Patrick's head in the game. Although Annie was hesitant about the idea at first, she finally admits Marin would make a great maid of honor and a great best man. After all, she's the one who brought those two crazy kids together. I continue to be delighted by Dick and Celia's relationship. They're just so funny together and I really enjoy almost everything that comes out of Dick's mouth. (Hey, keep it clean.) When Celia realizes her man is not yet 40, she has a little freak-out. I don't see why. It's perfectly acceptable to date a younger man. Although it's not exactly clear how much older she is, I'm glad Dick will be Ashton to Celia's Demi. Fun dialogue: Jerome: "See, women turn you into mush with their healing lotions and their houses and their whatnot." Terry: "You two better stop this before I turn on the waterworks, I swear to Oprah." Jack: "She's like the sun. After a long winter she's like this force that just wakes you up." George: "Shellfish says unique." Patrick: "Not in Alaska. Shellfish are like apples. Of the sea. That are alive." Mai: "Why don't we set you up with a nice American man? You know, the kind of guy who doesn't wear a deep-cut fuchsia leotard." Cash: "I'm not a sweetie." Lucy Wu: "I must return to my cold, unfulfilled life on the ice." Celia: "You should just get out when I can still kinda walk a little." Lucy Wu: "It would be wrong to marry a man I would most certainly cuckold." Mai: "Wu doesn't understand the subtleties of a fake marriage." All these crazy characters just continue to grow on me. I really love Celia's relationship with Dick. The actors really make me believe in them as a couple. I also love Annie and Patrick together. I'm glad everything's going according to plan with their wedding. I think it's cute that Marin will be both the maid of honor and the best man. It'll be a lot of work for her, but when hasn't Marin stepped up to a challenge? Was I the only one who thought Jack's sun speech was a little cheesy? Just a little. The thought behind it was touching (which is why I included it above), but it was a little much for me. I mean, I guess she's a little yellow like the sun - she's got the blonde hair after all. And her personality is very sunny and bright. It's just that the sentiment seemed just a little strange coming from Jack. I like the way Cash rephrased it. That made me laugh. And we got a cameo tonight from Plow Guy. I miss Jane, too. Where the heck is she and why doesn't Marin at least call or e-mail her? We need our Jane fix. What about you? What did you think of the episode? Do you like the idea of George and Terry as a couple? Do you think Marin can pull off all her maid-of-honor and best-man duties? Do you think Dick and Celia will make it? Are you ready for Jack and Marin to be together, or do you think they're better apart? Check out our Online Video Guide for more Men in Trees.
