Newsome: "[Some boring story about previously being a police detective.]"
Karen: "[Loves it because she has never heard a story before.]"
Newsome: "It's kind of like being somebody's doctor. You can't save everybody, and you get all attached to people, and then people get hurt."
Karen: "Are we talking about me?"
Newsome: "No, still me. I got a CI killed. I guess by loving him too much or something? Maybe by prescribing lethal doses of morphine, who knows? This story is too boring to figure out what I'm talking about."
He leans in for a kiss as he's leaving, and I guess she can hear me scream SAM through the TV, so she shuts that shit down very suddenly.
Karen: "It's not clean between us. The investigation is still open. Not making that mistake again. The mistake you were just talking about, and how we shouldn't make it."
Newsome: "Whatever. As the first good call you've ever made in your life, I applaud you. As a man who came here in the middle of the night to fix your paranoia cameras and listened to your weird stories and drank your weird wine and thought I was on a date, I do not applaud you. Let's focus on the first one, though."
As Savannah is discovering that Harry's still on a rampage somewhere, Joss awesomely shows up at Alex's, having taken that cab over the second she shook the crazy down enough to realize Alex was right about everything -- and more impressively, that she wouldn't mind round two. Not stewers, these two, which I very much appreciate. It can take a lot to get through the icky shame of a moment like that and remember who your friends are. Especially for somebody like Joss, who doesn't understand the difference between boundaries and anger.
"See this gorgeous face? This is my gorgeous worried face. I'm not mad, I don't judge you. I would say I love you, except that would be weird for other reasons. I am your BFF. You have been acting weird for a few days now, real impulsive and youthful and trainwrecky, and you won't talk to me about it, but you keep rubbing up against it and like forcing me to ask you about it? Which is unfair, on one level, but on another level means it's kind of my duty to push past your walls and get you talking. If only for my own self-preservation, and that of our relationship."
Joss: "You need to understand that this is part of me. I am part wild."
