This sounds unlikely to me -- think of the comments we've heard Laura making
to Jacoby that suggest their sexual relationship (e.g. Laura's comment from
an early episode: "James is sweet, but sometimes I don't want sweetness" (or
something to that effect)).  They don't seem the sort of things Laura would
say to someone who cried the first time they made love.
