The families almost meet
Rick and Lily bring the families together at the conclusion of the episode. We never really get to see them interact as a group, but we get the first scene of all six of them together for the first time.
Eli sees Cassidy with another guy
As if to confirm what Grace told him, Eli sees Cassidy kissing some other guy in front of her house as he drives by.
Grace is confronted
Lisa and Rachael, who used to be Jennifer's friends, confront Grace in the girl's locker room to convince her that what Jennifer said about Cassidy's infidelity to Eli was untrue. They also confront her about dating an African American to which Grace gives one of the classic retorts - "Why are you a meshuggenah racist bitch?"
Naomi makes her choice
Naomi apparently decides to distance herself from Lily because she feels the relationship is entirely one way and Lily is too selfish. She also has difficulty handling Lily talking about Rick because she is good friends with Karen
Karen and Judy meet
And apparently enjoy each other's company. Karen visits the bookstore in an attempt to meet Lily and meets Judy instead. They talk about their current relationships.

The bottle of scotch
Miles sends Rick a bottle of scotch thanking him in advance for working late, the very night that he has plans with Lily. In previous episodes, Rick had explained that his dad would come home, completely frazzled from the day, and drink his scotch. That was when Rick knew he had to be quiet and not disturb his dad.
Maybe, Saint Maybe?
Jeffrey Nordling was in the TV movie of Anne Tyler's "Saint Maybe".
A cup of mud
In "A Door, About To Open," there is a moment that grossed me out. Rick takes pencils out of a coffee cup, opens the bottle of liquor (scotch, I think) he just got from Miles, and pours a drink for himself, WITHOUT washing the cup first. I know Rick was down in the dumps then, but couldn't he have made a trip to the washroom to clean the cup out? Who knows what could have been growing in that cup? -- AdamBomb1701
