Punch it Out

Luke meets with his attorney in sort of an endless roundabout which concludes with him deciding to fight a probably fruitless battle for partial custody of April: "I don't want this to get ugly. I just want what's fair."

Speaking of getting ugly, Lucy is telling a loud, rambling story to Logan at dinner while Rory and Marty silently and uncomfortably stand by. When she's done, they all engage in a little "my girl/boyfriend is so funny/hardworking" story tradeoff, ending with Lucy commenting on how hard Marty works at his four jobs. "That's a lot of jobs, my boy," Logan says, in a friendly tone. Marty gets uppity: "Hey, I'm just waiting for that trust fund to kick in." Though Rory and Logan both look uncomfortable, Logan doesn't take the bait. Instead, he asks Lucy how she and Marty met, at which point she gigglingly tells a story about how Marty came to see her in a play every night: "After the fifth show, I went up to him and I said, 'Next time I see you, you'd better bring flowers, or have a knife and stab me,' and..." Marty: "Next time I saw her, I had daisies and a butter knife." Lucy giggles again, and asks how Logan and Rory met. "Actually," says Logan, as Rory blanches, "Marty introduced us." Everybody's face goes pale. "I'm sorry," says Logan to Rory. Lucy asks what he's talking about. "I can't be a part of this," Logan tells Rory. He tells Lucy that Rory and Marty have known each other since freshman year when they used to hang out watching Duck Soup. Lucy FREAKS OUT like she's just finding out that they're secretly married. I mean, yes, it's crazy that they didn't tell her they knew each other, but correct me if I'm wrong: Marty and Rory never dated, right? What IS the big deal? Lucy screeches as they all try to apologize, and runs out crying. When Marty chases after her, Rory wants to know what is wrong with Logan. "I was asked a direct question," says Logan. "I'm not going to lie. She's a nice girl." Who am I supposed to think is the asshat here? Because at this point, I can't even tell you. Sure, Logan is technically right, but who is he? TruthMan? Saving us all from our little white lies? Marty's a freak and Rory's a bad friend? I guess, but...who even cares about this? ["Seriously. Rory and Lucy have been friends for ten minutes." -- Wing Chun] And if I'm supposed to care, please tell me why, somebody. Is Marty Rory's one true love, or something? Why, again? Rory and Logan have a big fight, Logan getting all sanctimonious about telling Lucy the truth. It ends with him saying he's going to go back to the city tonight after dinner. Rory: "Fine."
