Alex: "How is this possible?"
Joss: "Unfriend! Plus, who dates Bedtime Story? She was gross."
Alex: "She's not gross."
Joss: "Skinny. Eat a sandwich, whore!"
Alex: "Body shaming and slut shaming at the same time? Genius! This is how all women should bond! Or at least the worst ones."
Trigger Warning: Free spirit! Comin' in hot!
Joss always goes for the weakest gazelle, we know this. "Oh, is your entire life and home and interior in free-fall? Let's see if I can't spit in that petri dish and make something truly festive happen." It was going to happen the second Olivier repeated Alex's name, because this is a great way to middle-finger Growing Up, too. "Oh, you can't have her but I can, God of Hard Things! Take that! Who's The Boss now, Danny Pintauro?"
Most surprising of all is that, instead of facepunching Joss for taking eight different kinds of advantage of her at once -- not to mention undermining and sabotaging and straight-up borderlining all her own progress from last week, which is the most disrespectful part of all -- Alex gives a partial resist to this rando attack on her lesbian face... and then goes in for the lipstick kill. Weakest gazelle, reporting for destruction.
Receptionist: "I did all the things a normal receptionist would do, like make appointments and take messages."
Karen: "Keeping Lila, the worst receptionist of all time, is one of the more outward signs of my inability to deal with shit. Have a good night, and by all means don't come back tomorrow or else our office might actually one day function."
Dr. Jacob: "Karen, I have one more patient but while I've got you in the foyer, can I just say I'm really sorry for yelling at you a while back?"
Karen: "Not necessary. Your business partner is flaming wreckage, adrift on a sea of exploding garbage. Why wouldn't you be concerned?"
Dr. Jacob: "I didn't say I was wrong, I just said I don't like feeling tension with you. It comes down to being worried about you. About my money and my practice, but also partially about you and your mess of a life."
Karen: "Thank God. For a second I thought I was going to be accountable to someone."
Sam Grey shows up! Lookin' good, Sam. He's there for his appointment with Jacob Lerner, though, not to stab Karen in the eye. (Yet.) Points for stalker creativity, but also points for seeking mental help with his many problems. And the most points of all for finally coming back into my life, although you know Karen's going to just think this is all about her and not about me at all. Dr. Lerner closes the door on her jaw-droppedness, not unlike the maid in The Godfather, and what do you think they are going to talk about in there?
