"Stay put till I need you," George orders Ginger, "Don't talk to anybody, and for god's sake, don't get drunk." "You know," she says, "I was supposed to go to my cousin's wedding today." George: "It's not a wedding, it's a commitment ceremony." Ha!
Gabby is camping out in her bathroom, doing some deep breathing.
Meanwhile, Zana has brought Julie two hot dogs with all the fixings, which she rejects, as she does to his offer to go play some croquet. That's fine, he says -- they can just sit there. Julie snaps. "Zach! I don't want to be your girlfriend, I don't want to hang out with you, I just want you to leave me alone, okay?" "Kay..." he says with much sadness. As he walks away, Julie looks like she feels semi-bad, but also relieved to be finally shod of him.
Gabby pops the champagne and pours herself a glass. She stares at it for a second, sighs, and then pours it out into the sink. Oh my god, is she keeping her baby? Papa don't preach! Sulkily, she pulls a packet of birth-control pills out of a lacquered chest. (Huh, I thought she kept her pills in a weird briefcase thing.) She flips open the case and stares broodingly at the pills of betrayal. It looks as though she's about a week into this cycle, which means she should have just finished with her period. But, unless she's been pregnant for just a few days -- and really, I don't think she'd be all boob-tender and hurling that soon? -- I'm guessing she skipped her period altogether. Regarding the baby growing inside her womb? In which case, why would she be so surprised by the pregnancy? From what I know about the pill, you can pretty much set your watch by your period. Maybe she's one of the rare cases who gets her period even when she's pregnant? Or maybe she was so busy shopping for a shiny new MASERATI SPYDER to decorate he front driveway with that she missed her missed period? In any case! Gabby is mad. She asked Father Disappointed whom she should be mad at, and now she knows. She is mad at her birth-control pills! She slaps them. Then she beats them with her fist. Mad, mad, mad! After all this violence, the pills spring free from their plastic shell, and Gabby peers at them suspiciously. What have we here? MAVO: "In that moment, while looking at the pills that had been so obviously tampered with, Gabrielle's nausea was suddenly replaced by an even stronger sensation." Rage!
