Now we're back at Charlie's flat, and the elevator opens up in a wall decorated with a painting of the Union Jack, only the lines are all wavy. Charlie probably painted it when he was high. As Charlie comes in, we see the piano from his childhood against a wall, upon which hangs a "The Drive Across America Tour" poster. More like "The Suck Across America Tour." There's a cigarette left burning on top of the piano, which pisses Charlie off, because heroin is one thing but smokers are worse than Hitler, and he stubs it out, and then it occurs to him that it must mean that Liam's back. Sure enough, there's Liam, unconscious on the couch, arm tied off. Charlie shakes him awake, and yells at him that he's supposed to be cleaning up, and Liam calls him "baby brothah" which I'm starting to think is required in every single scene that Liam shares with Charlie. Charlie bitches that he told Karen that Liam missed his flight, and here's Liam getting high, and Charlie's so angry, you'd think he thought Liam actually did miss his flight; was he that surprised to find Liam fixing? Charlie gathers up Liam's works and stares at the little baggie, and Liam's all, "Don't worry; I left you some," which seems to be insulting to Charlie for god only knows what reason, and he snaps that Liam needs to shower and get to the hospital, and oh, by the way, you have a daughter. Way to ruin the surprise, Charlie. "Her name's Meghan," he adds. Liam stops, and a smile breaks across his face. "After Mum?" Charlie smiles a little too. "Yeah, after Mum. Now clean yourself up. You're a sodding father now." I love the way the dirtiest British slang can be used on American television with no Senate committees struck to look into culture's complete slide into amorality.
