Lily sits Jenny down and is totally sweet with her, and Jenny's very cognizant of how awesome Lily's being, how desperate she is to get Jenny out of her house and back with Rufus, how grateful Jenny is for getting to stay there, she gets all of that, but she's also like: "Um... You don't know how he's been, so... Yeah." Lily reminds her gently that Rufus is her father, and joke of the universe or not, the punchline is that Jenny has proven herself incapable of raising herself to the degree that Rufus has succeeded for the past fifteen years. Jenny's not hearing it and lays a patch upstairs, and Lily totally-by-accident finds the emancipation papers in her purse, which of course is too heavy for even Lily's cool to withstand.
Dan and Rufus are shopping for their three-person sadsack Thanksgiving, and Rufus is like, "I'm so sad Jenny won't be at Thanksgiving," and Dan acts like Rufus missing Jenny is this amazing insight he's just had into their relationship, and puts it in the douchiest most presumptuous language possible: "You know, in the all arguments you two have been having, I haven't once heard you tell her that." Like the world was just holding its breath waiting for him to say it. And of course, Rufus is dumb enough that he's like, "EUREKA!" Because whatever the guilt-tripping lowest-effort thing is, that's what he'll do: "You mean I just have to tell her I miss her, and then she'll allow me to destroy her dreams of independence?" To Dan's credit, he's like, "Do you really have to be that intense about agreeing with me? Because it makes me feel like the helpful suggestions and insights I constantly offer are less than welcome or unusually inane." Aww.
