...and she's quite pretty, with piercing blue eyes that let you believe she and Duncan could in fact be related. A waiter drops a vodka tonic off for Duncan, and she contemptuously notes it's his third. "I didn't know you had to get loaded to face your daughter." I already like her well enough that I'm going to forgive the newsboy cap. Duncan makes a weak comeback, and Cameron informs him that while she appreciates the Cobb salad (the delivery of that line cracked me up for some reason) she's not going back to school, especially since his life turned out fine without a degree. "Professionally, at least." Duncan asks Cameron to call him "Dad," prompting her to bite out that "Dad" was the man who raised her since she was eight (he's been divorced from Lisbeth for eleven years?) and died of a stroke the year before. Sounds like a good guy -- probably no cash bar at his funeral. Cameron goes on that she's smart and gives "good meeting," and she'll find a decent job, to which Duncan slurringly asks what the market is for "overentitled nineteen-year-olds with smart mouths." Ooh, she's going to work at the Apple Store? Anyway, I like Cameron, but the bitchery here gets repetitive, so let's skip ahead to the part where she says that if Duncan wants to act like her dad, he should prove it by giving her a job. There's no reaction shot of Duncan, which is too bad, because a spot of sheer terror could have livened things up, at least for me.
