Coop drops by to see Eddie in the pharmacy, ruining his day while asking for Zyrtec as a necessary byway so that he can start telling Eddie about how he not only got laid but got laid by another man's lady, because for some reason he thinks Eddie's approval is something you would like ever want. "What's the matter, are you allergic to yourself?" Eddie asks, which is pretty much why all this is happening. Coop's elated that Eddie's returned to All Saints and that Jackie's left for the day, and Eddie just wants him out of there, but Coop has to tell him the whole situation: "You know Sam?" Sam... The cat?
"And... I fit in how?" Eddie's hate for Coop is one of his more likeable qualities, somehow, although any other character being mean to Coop irritates me. I think it's that Coop's behavior with anybody else is pitiable and sad because the day of the white man is ending, but with Eddie it's just so gross and no-homo and desperate that Eddie's helping me out through his abuses, because you can't actually reach through the screen and slap him around.
Coop is all, Am I a dick for sleeping with another's guy's girl?, and what he wants is secondarily to be told that he is a stud for doing this, but primarily just wants to keep talking and talking and talking about himself and ))<>(( forever and ever, because that's his steeze. "No. A lot of things qualify you to be a dick. You are firing on a lot of cylinders, Coop. A lot of cylinders." Coop practically kisses him on the mouth, because he lacks a firm male role model, and takes off. Eddie silently wonders if getting fired and nearly dying from fake suicide were just God's way of getting Coop to leave him alone.
Becky Ann Baker! I am so obsessed with her that I tracked down and watched an episode of Star Trek: Voyager because she was in it. She is like the sexiest old lady of all time. There is something uncanny and magical within her, I can't explain it, but it's like she knows the secret and really wants to tell us the secret but she is waiting for us to ask. Every time, on every show, she is like this. So she's running this B&B that the Peytons have ended up at, because the hotel they were going to was overbooked. Elaine, the lady, explains a lot of unnecessary about why that hotel is no longer awesome, and then everybody pitches in to explain the concept of a bed & breakfast to Grace, who is of course horrified by every new detail: "This isn't a hotel, this is somebody's living room." When you put it like that, Grace sort of has a point.
