...and then later, the Asian dude is writing out a check for Patrick as Patrick tells him that "it" isn't that big a deal, so...is he now saying he did fuck that up, and the Asian dude covered for him? None of this makes any sense, but the Asian guy tells him he's sure he's right, and even though this line was delivered in a more bored than snide manner, Patrick has to get all "I don't like your tone" about it, but the guy is singularly unimpressed, asking if he's going to beat him up before handing him the check and suggesting he tell Johnny there won't be any more favors coming. And after that sequence that was edited down to the point of making no sense, we then spend a full five seconds watching Patrick's back as he walks out of the place. I cannot BELIEVE Terriers couldn't make it on this network.
Theresa arrives home and, when Patrick points out that she's home late, breathlessly tells him that she was out celebrating with "some of the other fourth-years," like, I know they have a nanny but don't married people with kids check in with each other when they're going to be unexpectedly late? Whatever, as a gay man I'm not supposed to understand this institution anyway. Patrick informs Theresa that Katie was up when he got home because the nanny let her watch the interview and she saw clips from the fight, which upset her. Thankfully, this does not turn into a big thing, and it turns out Theresa had good reason for celebrating, as she got her first choice for residency, although the fact that she got such big news makes it even more bizarre to me that she didn't, you know, give her husband a call to share it with him. She thanks him for everything he's done for her and adds that she'll finally be able to contribute financially, as residents get paid thirty-four grand a year, and I wonder what she'd say if she knew that her husband could make more than that in one night by going to some dude's house and looking tough. They toast wordlessly, and then...we're out of the scene? Where's the emotional turn? Good God, this show.
