"The Lunch" is the fifteenth episode of Season 2 of ABC's A Million Little Things. It was written by Geoffrey Nauffts & Katie Scheines, and directed by Richard J. Lewis. It is the thirty-second episode of the series overall, and premiered on February 27, 2020.
Gary accidentally crashes Maggie's first date with a new guy, and Delilah is forced to have "the talk" with Sophie. Rome has an important meeting with a Hollywood big shot, while Eddie teaches Dakota a tough lesson in what it takes to succeed in the music business.
- This episode takes place four months after "Time Stands Still", and a few days after "The Sleepover".
- This is the first episode where Charlie does not appear since her birth.
- Per DJ Nash, the name of Maggie's date is "Larry" because they wanted to tease the episode's editor, whose name is Larry.
- The fact that Maggie has only Henry Winkler's autograph on her shelf is a reference to DJ Nash's own childhood. He revealed on Twitter that Winkler is the only person he ever wrote to as a kid and asked for his autograph, before having the chance to work with him years later.
