I never fully understood David's exchange with Mr. Hayes' mistress when he knocks at the hotel room door. What did he mean by "Bad joke"? Was he pretending that someone had sent him there as a practical joke? Or that he was playing a joke? For some reason the dialogue never really clicked for me.
David I think wants the woman who answered the door think that he knocked on her door because some friend gave him the wrong room number intentionally. He had to have some excuse for knocking on her door and not really knowing her.
[glow=crimson,2,300]Hi it's me again,the great Sakura,the number 1,the fantastic Star,and....something else. I just want to say,I like this episode,I have it record,it was my 6th episode record. When I saw the start of the show,they were so close each other. Also,I like that great dance on David,was fantastic,and very funny. How about you. You favourite Star.

I think that the "bad joke" bit was David pretending that someone had sent him there as a joke, but also that it was a bad joke as he was really hoping it was not going to be a woman answering the door. If an old man had answered the door, David might have seen it as a "good joke", David really didn't want to have to tell Maddie her father was having an affair.
Yeah, I agree with you, babyhayes—"bad joke" was said because David was upset and saddened by what he saw, and was disappointed. And he hated the idea that he'd have to tell Maddie about this. David was sad and subdued when he said it.
