“Work Out” Recaps: Episode 3.2 “SkyLab 2.0”


The rest of the SkyLab

gang, Micah and Victoria, don’t have the massive weight problems the others do.

Dr. Huizenga tells Jackie she even has a shot with Micah of getting him some six-pack


He then says that Victoria has a medical

condition in her lady parts because obesity also affects the body’s hormones. But

with weight loss, many of these conditions resolve themselves.

“You’re going to

become a gynecological endocrinologist,” he says. Jackie immediately snickers,

thinking to herself, “You said ‘gynecological'” like the 10 year-old

boy she is.

As a longtime amateur gynecologist,

Jackie is well-qualified for this new position.

Lesbians ahoy — Taking all the information she’s gleaned from

interviews, medical records, sonograms and weigh-ins, Jackie plays a game with

herself, matching SkyLab clients with her trainers.

The Grand Master moves

her pawns around until she’s satisfied she has a winning strategy. It’s

important that each client gets paired with the right trainer, but holding

people’s lives in her hands, if only for a few weeks, is also a delicious


The next day, Jackie

takes all the female trainers out for sushi. Jackie sure does love sushi.

Over lunch, to the

surprise and delight of the table (and to the dismay of Mexicans from

here to Mazatlan), Jackie invites the girls to join her on a

cruise to Mexico.

Jackie covers her mouth with her hand while emitting an oddly girlish


and mentions that it’s an Olivia cruise. The others continue to smile

innocently, but Rebecca suddenly smells what Jackie’s stepping in.

Rebecca: Olivia Cruises? Is that …

Jackie: [to Rebecca] You know what

that is.

Rebecca: [to the table] It’s a

lesbionic cruise.

Jackie: It’s a lesbian cruise.

Rebecca: I love lesbians!

You know, there was

something nostalgic and intimate about Jackie’s “You know what that is”

to Rebecca. Rebecca clearly received the immersion course in Lesbian 101 when she

hooked up with Jackie last season. I bet Rebecca now knows a bunch of useless

facts about The L Word.

But the thrill is

definitely gone as far as Jackie’s concerned, because she says she hopes some

big ol’ dykes hook up with Rebecca. Wait — are they all going to prison?

However, that’s not going

to happen. You’re the only big ol’ dyke in her world, Jackie.

When asked, Agostina says

confidently that she has no problem going on a lesbian cruise — many of her

clients are lesbians. Agostina isn’t very excitable and mostly hangs back and

watches the others with sanguine detachment.

Then Rebecca drops a

bomb. Looking at Jackie and Agostina, she blurts out, “Well, y’all made

out, so you’re sort of on our team.”

And by “our team,”

she means Sky Sport employees who’ve known Jackie’s minty fresh breath up close

and personal. The list grows longer with each passing day. Is she physically

incapable of keeping her lips to herself?
