"So just because Karen heard about this from my big-mouthed sister?" Lily asks, as we cut to her and Rick's bedroom. Rick assures her it has "nothing to do with [her] big-mouthed sister." Lily yanks back the duvet and half-asks, "Rick, you're going to let her go, right?" Rick mutters something about not even knowing the boy. "His name is Tad. What more do you need to know?" Lily asks. You know, stressing the fact that the kid has a name like a porn star probably isn't helping any. I'm just saying. Lily plunks herself on the edge of the bed, rubbing her eye and complaining that it makes "a squeaking sound" when she rubs it. Rick immediately scurries over to her, asking to hear it. She obligingly keeps rubbing and asks if he hears it. "No, but I do hear the ocean," he quips. Heh. Finally. Only 748 more digs, and he'll have evened the score. Rick leans back against the headboard and tries to explain his reservations, conceding that he knows Lily will say that Jessie's social life is expanding, and that it's a good thing. Lily snuggles against his shoulder and interjects that it is a good thing. He continues, saying that he's happy for Jessie, but Lily interrupts to say that she doesn't think he is. She thinks he and Karen feel threatened because Jessie is growing up. Rick insists that he doesn't mind Jessie growing up; he just doesn't want her to change. "You know what often stops an eye from squeaking?" he asks a second later. Lily bites. "Intercourse," Rick says. Ick. That's a turn-off with a capital "off." ["If intercourse has any effect on Lily's eye, I don't think they're doing it right." -- Wing Chun] Luckily for him, Lily doesn't seem to think so.
