|Upon arrival, the group settles into
a cocktail party hosted by Mark. In the middle of the party, the single
men and women arrive and walk by the couples. While all the couples express confidence
that there is nothing to worry about, the coupled
women admit to being jealous and refute the coupled men's claim that the single guys aren't that impressive.
