As far as I can remember, this is the song that's all about what a liar Roxie Hart is, but there's all the baby talk in there too, from earlier, about Hubbell and his brother and how Fanny had to change her life around. I don't know, we go back to it at the end of the episode again so I feel like maybe there's something going on that we don't see yet.
What the dream does to her tonight, though, is send her back to the studio, alone, by night. The middle of the night being the perfect time to get things done, when all the noises of the day have dissipated, and you can look at all the pictures of Fanny's life and realize hers was unexpected too.
BOB & DON & LOVE & ROCKETS
Which is why the next morning, she shows up at the home improvement store, gleaming and grinning from every angle, and attempts to get the two guys running the place -- Bob and Don -- to come fix the floors for free. Or as she says, "On layaway, like at Contempo Casual." Needless to say, this doesn't go well... And neither do her two separate attempts to seduce Bob, and then Don, as a sort of divide and conquer strategy. Once again, nobody is feeling Michelle's wiles in this episode, which ironically makes her act goofier and cuter even than usual.
Michelle: "So no one wants to do me. Or your floors. Is there a libido issue in this area? Has something in the water killed off all the testosterone in the town of Paradise, or have I very suddenly lost all my skills to seduce?"
Fanny: "Uh, who are you trying to seduce?"
Michelle: "The hardware store guys, Bob and Don?"
Fanny: "Fat Bob and Skinny Don? For sex?"
Michelle: "No! To do our floors. I strutted my stuff a little bit to get them to do it on layaway, like Contempo Casuals, and they just turned their backs..."
Fanny, exhausted: "Will I ever be able to go in that store again?"
Michelle: "I'd give it some time."
Michelle: "But it's not too late! Fix the floors, show Joffrey the Ojai stats on animal abuse and mushroom consumption, we'll get 'em back! I found an Internet cafe, went online, found a town -- a bigger town, north of here, with multiple resources for fixing a dance floor, friendly-looking guys featured in the ads... Can't tell how horny they are, but I'll find out when I get there!"
