Remember how I was saying that we haven't seen much of Vince's personality, thus far, and that the reason for this is that there is no such animal as Vince's personality? Apparently my saying that scared Marky Mark right back into his pants, because it turns out Kristen's something of an amateur psychologist, coincidentally, and she's been giving thought to Vince's character, coincidentally, and she would now like to engage in probably the most damning television shortcut bullshit technique ever created by people who can't really write very well, by explaining his psychological makeup, in detail. Jesus, I hate that. The whole point of good TV is that we draw these conclusions ourselves: it's one of the ways you know you made a believable character. But to send lovely Kristen in to tell us the nature of things? Bad, bad news. Bad news for a good scene. ["Just as a point of interest, this is where I decided to erase the episode without watching the rest, and never watch it again." -- Wing Chun] "Vince has to break up with girls before it gets serious; that way he can't get hurt." Whoa. Incisive. Next you'll be telling me Eric's afraid of success or something, and that's why he's a remora on Vince's shark ass. I mean, she's an amateur, right? So but it shouldn't be this easy for me to believe that that is not where the show is trying to go. They are trying to deliver important information to us in this manner. And that? Sucks.
