As she gets out of her car, Kevin hollers, "What the hell is your problem? Are you blind?" And I realize, he's stuck there. Of all the times I've imagined what it must be like to be paralyzed, I never came up with the scenario of being unable to get out of your car and yell at the other driver in the event of a minor accident. How very unsatisfying. Lily: "How could you not see me coming?" Kevin says his brakes didn't work. Lily: "Oh, so you decided to go out for a spin?" Joan gets out of the car and thanks Lily for the ride. She heads for the house. Way to be helpful. They both ignore her. Kevin: "You should look where you're going!" She shoots back: "Oh, just relax! You're crippled already!" Ha! Kevin: "Nice." That's rich, coming from the guy who just told his brother it's too bad Luke wasn't the one who was crippled. Lily apologizes: "Had a great day. Still giddy." Kevin: "Just give me your number." Lily marches around her car so she can stand next to Kevin's door, saying, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!" When she gets there, she demands to know, "Did you think I did this just to pick you up?" What? Where the hell is she getting that? Kevin looks incredulous: "For insurance?" Lily: "You lost my number?" Kevin: "After you walked out on me in the restaurant, you didn't exactly make it into my little black book." Lily taunts him: "What, so someone gives you a little grief and so you just bail?" Kevin accuses her of being the one who bailed. Lily laughs and says she doesn't bail. They argue about who bailed and when, and it's all become very flirtatious. Somehow the actors are managing to convey what the writing isn't fully supporting. Fortunately, after surviving The West Wing from late 2001 to early 2004, I'm used to that sort of thing. Lily, who's all too open to giving Kevin another chance, suggests, "Well, let's just, um, push your piece of crap out of the way and go for Greek food tomorrow." She starts struggling to move Kevin's boat as Kevin says, "I hate Greek food." Lily: "Did I ask you your opinion?" Lily, of course, can't move the car an inch, but struggles mightily, as Kevin exhorts her, "Put a little muscle in it!" Lily laughs and tells him to shut up. Frink: "It's the happiest accident ever!"
