"And the only thing more shocking than the truth... Are the lies people tell to cover it up."
The Kills would seem to agree: as Lily comes out of the Palace wearing cute glasses, talking to her wedding planner Claudette (who's played by this great character actress whose name I cannot seem to find or place), "Cheap & Cheerful" starts to play: "I'm tired of being cheap and cheerful / I want expensive sadness / You're stupid, baby, when you're sane / You're boring, baby, when you're straight." That could be the Rufus and Lily theme song (or a karaoke song by G, come to think of it). She awesomely tells Claudette to keep Mr. Spitzer as far away from Serena's table as possible, at the reception, and goes back to her list: "Ugh, what's not on the schedule today?"
Or any day: "I don't think I am..." She does this awesome physical move where she shoves the schedule out toward him, between them like a shield, like her marriage, and he takes it: "Maybe you could fit me in between Preston Bailey and Sylvia Weinstock?" After a sec, she gets it together. "Well, good luck fitting anything between those two. What... What are you doing here?" She takes off her glasses and looks at him. "Believe it or not, I'm here to see you." She brushes him off and heads for the car, citing a laundry list of duties today, and he stops her in her tracks: "-- It's about Jenny. Alison's away on an artists' retreat, and I could really use a mother's advice. I think I might be in over my head." She offers to talk about it on the way, and he follows her into the towncar, taking care to thank the driver.
Dan arrives in the Unity courtyard, finds Asher grabassing around with his lacrosse buddies, and asks for a minute. Since it's now noon, Asher says he can only spend a minute: "Jenny and I have a lunch date." There's no easy way to say it. "Look, there's no easy way to say this, honestly, so I'm just gonna... I'm just gonna say it. I... I, uh, saw you this morning," he stammers, totally uncomfortable. "Saw me what?" asks Asher. ("This morning!") "I saw you ... You know, I ... Saw you kissing that guy." Asher denies, of course, but Dan's fairly certain that striking profile is one of a kind. "Are you calling me queer?"
