I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good

Julian: "Is this the new Geo Contort? Sciatica 450LS? I heard about that one..."
Joanna: "It's a normal car that a normal American might drive, you ass."
Julian: "I am sorry I have gone crazy, but on the other hand I have gone crazy so I'm not sure what you expect me to do about it. I'm just having fun."
Joanna: "Rich kid fun never looks like fun. It looks like depression plus money."

Julian: "I, um. Really miss her. I failed."
Joanna: "We both did, and we're both gonna have to deal with that."
Julian: "If you leave me alone or take me home and I'm alone, I feel like I am going to die. Will you please have dinner with me or stay awake with me or even just eventually fall asleep nearby while I watch TV? This is a very real, uncomfortable feeling."
Joanna: "I have to go back to work. This was me doing my job, getting you."
Julian: "Right, then later. Surely somewhere in Manhattan there are other moneyed drug addicts I can jabber at, who can jabber back at me, and we'll think we're friends even though neither of us is really listening to the other one. At least I won't be alone."

He hops out of the car and goes dancing off into the crowd, and Joanna feels three to four separate but entirely fully-formed feelings about this.


Robert: "You're still here?"
Joanna: "I leave when you leave. It's hard work but worth it."
Robert: "Well, come chat with me then."
Joanna: "I mean, if you're done then why not go home?"
Robert, verbatim: "I guess I don't want to? Everybody's mad at everybody. Julian is on a bender, Mia is at sea... the last time I tried to raise a teenage girl, it didn't go so well."
Joanna: "You're the closest thing I had to a father, and I mean, I'm not setting the world on fire, but... I'm here. I think Mia just wants to talk about Vivian, it's not insane."
Robert: "I know. I really feel like I'm losing everybody. I mean, I lost Edward the night he allegedly raped and strangled that girl. I miss him the most, he was great. Serious, but so sweet. I called him Eddie Spaghetti."

It goes on like this for a while, and eventually Joanna pieces together his password for the R&D personnel file, which is stupid, but still not as stupid as the first half of this episode, plus Victor Garber talking so sweetly about toddlers is just about the most, so it'll slide.
