Oh my god, what a cute orange kitten!
Really bad cut back from commercial. Seated at a long, highly polished table and surrounded by his first-year minions, O'Donnell faces his ex, a blond, pouty woman in a red dress (natch). Oh, it's the chick from Romy & Michelle's High-School Reunion. "I'll take that as a no?" O'Donnell is saying as we try to recover from the Really Bad Cut. "I'll take more tea!" the ex spits and whips her glass across the table. O'Donnell tells her that Dr. Heineman has a really clean record, and Anna (also wearing red) chimes in that he's a model citizen. "It going to be really hard getting anything out of him until we get something on him," O'Donnell tells her. "And I don't want to hurt him, Sam, I just want what's fair," the ex says. O'Donnell tells her that what she thinks is fair will kill this guy. The Ex tells him that the good doctor doesn't have any skeletons in his closet. "He's a good guy," Ex says, and looks at Anna. "I got a good one, I just couldn't keep him," she says dramatically.
"You know, in Popular, the overacting in this scene would be really funny, but in First Years it just stinks," Mr. keckler tells me, passing back the jug of tequila.
Ex looks at O'Donnell and suggests dropping the case. "No!" PlasticMan shrieks, sticking his thick neck further out of his mock turtleneck. "Honey, he hurt you," O'Donnell says. "Yeah, and he should pay for that," PlasticMan says. "Yeah, him, not me," O'Donnell clarifies. "Don't let him get away with this, Mrs. O'Donnell, because if you do, you're saying it's okay and it's not," PlasticMan says, jumping up and getting all impassioned. He gets more impassioned about men and women throwing things away like trash when they don't work anymore, blah blah blah relating this all to his own love lifecakes. Anna looks very moved by this speech. I feel movement too. I think it's the movement of my dinner up my throat.
