Mo-Mo says the Kevins went through a lawyer, not an agency -- probably best when you've already taken the baby for a test drive -- and then he sits back, thinking they're all friends and shit, and Gloria stares lasers at him until he peaces. And then all alone, she looks down at the awesome baby, whom she is now keeping in her desk. I know how this show works and I love it just as it is, but how crazy would it be if A) something grisly happened or B) there was no baby the entire time. That is two serious situations!
Looking for Coop, Jackie comes across a fake Jackie O/Audrey type with a seriously hideous stripe in her coif, who jams about a ton of paperwork in Jackie's face and asks like, why she hasn't even gotten her appetizer yet, and Jackie notices that she lives at 83rd and Park, or thereabouts, and so why is she at All Saints? And additionally, "lice" is not an emergency. The awful lady points at her innocent-for-now progeny, whose scalps are bleeding, and Jackie's like, "Take care of this at home, or call your pediatrician, WTF."
The lady's like, "You know what I would love? If you could take care of this instead." Not only because she's entitled and frankly a bitch, but also because the pediatrician is a family friend. And you know, I've been writing about UESers for so long it's just a natural response to sympathize. Because honestly, if your friends are doctors and your doctors are your friends, that's it: no more getting sick, ever. Lice, abortions, none of it. You're Roy Cohn all of a sudden. What a sad life. Especially in this post-Madoff landscape in which we find ourselves living, if "living" is even the word.
Jackie calls her an asshole, but of course she's going to take care of it. Mo-Mo grabs her as she heads out with the kids, to tell her the dead kid's parents totally oppose organ donation, and are on their way. Jackie tells him that the kid's an adult and can make up his mind, leaving out the part where she will be playing the part of "his mind," and Jackie kind of drops a thread as far as finding Coop at this point, because he's not answering his pager, because that's like the one authentic thing about Coop: hates that pager. After a "can we move this along" piece of bullshit, Mo-Mo tells the snippy lady to chill because he is watching out for her. I just wanna see Jackie with her flats on one of that lady's kids' asses, trying to force it down a toilet.
