Also: fifty. Apparently, fifty is the number of times you need to have this conversation.
"Oh, what a restorative nap that was!" CeCe says, like people do, and Lily tells her she might need some VITAMIN WATER or something because she's not going to feel great for very long. The woman beat cancer at 70 without anybody finding out she was even sick, before she even had time to recover from beating imaginary cancer. She does a very cool switch in tone, leveling with Lily: "Eric out of earshot?" He's at a movie with his boyfriend, like in every other scene perhaps, and CeCe's all, "You're going to what, Lily, hack me to pieces, suffocate me with a pillow?" Graphic, CeCe. Lily tells her to get the fuck out of her house for the twentieth time, because she is "toxic" and because Lily fears turning into her. They talk about Carol, but not really, and Lily reiterates for the third time in this conversation, and at least the sixth time today, that CeCe needs to vacate the premises. Happy Mother's Day.
In 1983, Lily goes to a random diner to look for her sister, and a cute waitress gives her some cute attitude and then a homosexual with a freaky gargoyle face bumps into her with some dirty dishes and she acts like a bitch to him but then apologizes with... Another little speech that might help you out if you haven't been paying attention for the six minutes the show has been on tonight, but admittedly gets awesome at the end.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I've had a really rough day. I got kicked out of school, my Dad doesn't want me to live with him, I can't stand my mom, I spent the last $9 that I had on gas, and so now I'm broke and I'm homeless and unless I can find my sister, who I basically haven't talked to in like a year, I'm gonna have to become... A prostitute. And I don't even know how to be a prostitute, I mean really, how much small talk is required? And where do you even go? And are BJs a must? Because if that's the case, I am so not doing that."
Lie, but other than that these are very good questions. However, if I could just ask you to back up and explain to me who Carol is? And the status of your relationship with her? And exactly how you feel about your father and mother? And what else happened today? And in the last year? And in your whole life? And what day it is? And what year it is? And how gravity works? Actually, let me get everybody in this diner to quiet down so you can tell us all these things at once because I WOULD HATE FOR YOU TO HAVE TO REPEAT YOURSELF.
