Over at Casa de Puck Lite, Papa Lite is walking down to the basement and yelling at Morgan to get his ass upstairs. "College is like the first step to your own life," Puck Lite is saying in a VO. "I always look forward to, like, living on campus, and like hanging out and making a bunch of friends and stuff like that but, you know, having to go through all the years of college...you can't mess up too much and you can't slack off. It's kind of scary."
Papa Lite is sitting at the kitchen table, telling Puck Lite to clear his head. Looks like they're filling out college applications. Surprisingly enough, I think Papa Lite is trying to help his son. Dammit. Dammit all to hell. Am I going to have to start liking Papa Lite? Am I? It's like a whole new world order here. Dammit.
Papa Lite's trying to explain to Mouth that he has to prioritize some list they put together, and Mouth's being all obstinate and ADD-ish. Dad's losing patience, but he's still trying to help. "Can I listen to music while I do this?" Puck Lite asks. "No," says Dad. "You sure?" counters Puck Lite. "I'm sure," dad says. "'Kay," says Puck Lite. "I love you." At least, I think that's what he said. If he did then, you know, I might just have to hug him. "Morgan has this very strong pull towards being an adolescent with no responsibilities," says Papa Lite in a VO. "He's like a fucking bronco that has to be ridden." Did he just say "fucking"? On PBS? Wow. Cool. "Can we go get some ice cream?" asks Puck Lite. "Maybe after we finish this," responds Dad. "We're optimistic," says Dad in an interview, "that the day will come -- and we only hope we're still alive -- that things are going to coalesce for this kid." Awww.
Then Papa Lite's asking Morgan what he learned in drama class and how it shaped him, and when Morgan answers, Papa really seems to be listening. He then tells Morgan that he's going to put the answers into a simple sentence format (note: he's got a cute wittle kitty resting in his arms as he says this...dammit...I really didn't want to like this guy). Then Papa Lite says, "Mary! I'm taking the idiots out for some ice cream!" Heh. Yeah. I'm liking him quite a bit right now...
