- Stephen and Mal's apartment
Stephen recently went to Applebee's for the first time in a while (he and Mal don't normally go because she doesn't like it a lot). He ponders his observation that many people seem to really dislike Applebee's. In particular, there are a lot of claims that the service is poor and that restaurants microwave pre-packaged food. Regarding the latter concern, it probably wouldn't affect Stephen's choice to eat at the restaurant, since the food still tastes good.
He asks the viewers what their experiences with Applebee's have been, both positive and negative.
