Meanwhile, back in New York City, Marnie and Booth's party is in full-swing. Hannah shows up in what looks to be a preschooler's raincoat, which Marnie promptly hides under someone's blazer, because this is her new life, and Hannah's not going to ruin it. Hannah is, however, going to ruin herself. She storms back to her apartment when some Ginsberg-ian says his friend is also writing "just an E-Book."
Marnie, as it turns out, isn't so much as hosting the party as she is literally HOSTING the party. Booth has apparently hired her without her even realizing it. In fact, she isn't his girlfriend - not any more than his last assistant was. So she leaves. Hannah, in a funk, calls Marnie as she's taking the subway home; they lie to each other about how together they are, how everything is perfect. Marnie is not watching the fireflies in Booth's garden, and Hannah isn't writing away. They are, however, isolated and fooling themselves.
Ray tries to return the dog home, is met by a State Island teenager who has perfectly mastered The Combined vernacular of an underground rap track and Urban Dictionary, and convinces him that he's nothing.
