It's nighttime in L.A.; Addison is hanging out in Francie's kitchen and checking out sperm donors. Or, more precisely, written descriptions of sperm donors. Francie suggests that Addison borrow one of Grace's spare donors. And then Francie takes a deep breath and asks, "Are you sure you want to do this?" And while Merrin Dungey has been generally fine, that was an absolutely crap moment of acting. It was ABC After School Special bad. Francie thinks that having a baby will really change Addison's life, and Addison tells her that's exactly what she's looking for. She continues, "I mean, look, you have Maya. You have a family. You did everything the way you were supposed to. You didn't wait." Francie: "Maybe I should have."
Francie goes on to tell Addison that despite her doing everything right and never having any fun in her life, Taye still came home one day and asked for a divorce. Which just leaves Francie regretting all the stuff she didn't do when she was younger and had the chance. Francie: "I'm 38 years old, and I don't know how to have fun. That's not lucky. That's sad. So just shut up about lucky!" She's washing dishes as she rants, and she smashes a plate on that last line. And if she's 38 and is a partner in what appears to be a very prosperous practice, I would say she's pretty damn lucky. She can afford to buy some fun now. ["Also, she's 38, not 78. Bring it down a notch, Francie." -- Sars] Addison: "Poor, sad, dried-up [Francie]." I know you want a change in your life, Addison, but I really don't think you want to leave medicine to become a recapper. Francie tells her to shut up, but Addison continues: "Poor little, special, talented doctor girl. Let's make a made-for-TV movie about the poor little dried-up special girl who has no fun." They're both laughing by this point, and Francie snaps Addison with a towel. Francie says that she wished she had been a little more like Addison. Addison: "What, an adulterous bitch who forgot to have kids?" On second thought, you might make a better recapper than you are a doctor. And if we worked together, you could tell me where you bought those kick-ass glasses.
