Après sex their hair couldn't look better, and they're babbling a funny story about how Buffalo Tom groped her in Paris, but she doesn't really remember it, and isn't life so romantic, and the most interesting thing about this episode is that you can graph their relationship alongside the constant yo-yoing of Pilot Inspektor and they're the same thing. Like the second Rufus kisses Lily, you know that they're somehow going to get closer to their kid, and whenever they're fighting he doesn't exist. So it's like they're substituting this kid for their actual relationship, like he's their shared-narrative objective correlative for the future, but it works out to also be true in the actual story that we're watching, and then in the final scene Lily explodes the whole thing by going, "You know, I can't help noticing that we've been substituting this kid for our actual relationship, like he's our shared narrative's objective correlative for both our past history and the future of our families." So anyway, then the adoptive dad calls and invites them to a secret dinner without Pilot's mommy. Lily smiles like, "Fuckin' how nice for you."
Chuck storms into this weird room in the house that's like a library and a bistro, but I think it's somewhere in the apartment or the office or... Who knows. Maybe the library and bistro share DNA and that explains it. Chuck is all manner of hissy about how Jack force fed him whores and coke until the hole in his heart was almost full, and Jack's like, "That's sort of on you, isn't it?" He then mentions that this proves that Chuck is not mature enough for the Bass responsibility, and exposits a little bit that the reason he's being so Claudius and Gertrude about the whole thing is because Bart gave him a subsidiary in Australia, to get him out of the vicinity, and that he rocked out down under, and so he feels double-screwed by this latest turn of events: "This is how he repays me? By giving the company to a teenager who can't keep his pecker in his pants for 24 hours?" Chuck growls back, "At least I can keep mine in service for longer than five minutes," which like I don't even have the capacity to deal with this conversation, but Jack laughs and says Chuck and his boner are welcome to each other because now he has Bass Industries, because of a morality clause that the lawyer and letter forgot to mention wherein the board has the option to replace Chuck with his legal guardian, Jack, which they have. Chuck's rage drains out and his eyes just frost over with serious pain, because this is a hero of his, a role model and the only real male authority that ever treated him kindly, and now he's taken everything, and if Chuck cries in front of him he really will jump his fine ass off a roof, so what do you do.
