We learn a lot in this chapter: 1. We learn that Katie lived with her Aunt Angela during a period five months ago she calls The Terrible Four Months. 2. We meet Erica, a shy, quiet graphics staff, and learn that Mike and Paul, the other two on their team, are off having secret office sex in the copy room. 3. We learn that Katie has a sad secret about her sister, Anne, and that Katie has a leaky basement. 4. We discover that Katie chose to break up with her boyfriend and move back to Toronto to be an artist, but now she feels unfulfilled. 5. Finally, we learn that Katie and Melissa are going to a sample sale, to buy dresses for a wedding in a couple of weeks, where Melissa will have to face her ex-fiance.
Katie answers the phone and begins talking to the guy on the other end. Turns out he's an Irish artist named Eoin who has started an art project -- he has set this cell phone "free" in Toronto and every day he calls it and talks to whoever answers it. That person has to send a photo of themselves to him and then leave the phone in an unusual location, and he is mapping the phone's movements. Katie really likes talking with him, and continues to do so while Melissa goes inside the sample sale.
Katie gets drunk at the wedding. While Melissa dances with a stranger, Katie thinks about when Bobby had proposed to her, and she is overcome with sadness. It increases when she sees Melissa standing alone while David and Georgina seem so very much in love. When the MC calls for people who'd like to toast the bride and groom, Katie goes forward and makes a speech about how you cannot trust people to be honest or true, and she points to David and tells the room that he cheated on Melissa with Georgina and, quite literally, left Melissa at the alter on the day of their wedding. Melissa comes forward, is angry with her, and says there is no need for this, as she and David have talked and they are okay. Melissa leaves, and Eoin the artist appears at Katie's side and offers his help.
