Blair, looking like she's about to carve the words FUCKING HUMPHREYS across Jenny's cute little face, is like, "You. Minding your own business." Eleanor muses about how she'd imagined "something in a jacket, very YSL," and Jenny -- I think -- pulls a bad line reading in response: "Okay, Mick and Bianca 1971, great reference." (The way that she emphasizes "great" makes it sound like she's patronizing Eleanor for her tastes, but the sweet smile on her face -- and the fact that it remains unslapped -- makes the think the original line was written to infer gratitude, like, "Thanks for that great reference, I know exactly what you mean and can totally do that for you." Given Taylor Momsen's one of the best actors on the show, though, I can't say that for sure. I just can't figure out how the line, as written and acted, isn't infra-Vanessa, reaching up towards Lexi amounts of obnoxious. Although I will take this time to note that there is no Lexi this week, so I'm guessing maybe no Lexi ever again, which just proves that prayer works.)
Blair's no help, because this next line was inevitable: "Yeah, I hate to interrupt this fascinating chapter in 'Favorite Moments In Fashion History,' but..." Eleanor's done with her daughter, and grateful to be talking to Jenny again; she's the Eric to Eleanor's Bart and everybody always knew that. She shares the things with Jenny that she can't with Blair, and doesn't even bother hiding it. (Which, if my math is correct, means that she'll eventually make friends with the Dan of Bart -- one Vanessa Abrams -- which is disgusting. Although how awesome would it be if Vanessa made a secret guerilla documentary exposé about Eleanor's child labor violations that somehow, at the last second, Vanessa used to reconcile Blair's relationship with her mother?) "Jackets are tricky," Eleanor says, peer-to-peer, and Jenny nods sagely: "I know. But, um, I also know someone who owes you an all-nighter, and she would be honored." Eleanor wavers a bit before finally giving in, watching Cyrus's face light up: "Well, I think you should tell her that I said... Thank you." Jenny (Jenny would write thank-you notes, if she were literate) honestly and with much poise thanks Eleanor for the chance to make amends, and then -- adorably -- Cyrus literally goes "Yippee!" Even Eleanor laughs at him, because how awesome is Cyrus Rose is a question with an answer that won't fit on this page. He runs off to call the rabbi and tell Aaron the good news.
