At the office the next day, Lily's tattling on Graham and Boobies. Crusty, bent over her light table, is unaffected. "So he fed her carrot sticks? So what?" she asks. Lily's all indignant with her hands on her hips, and declares that she can't work with Graham. She thought she could, but she can't. Crusty speaks up in Graham's defense, saying that, as much as he dislikes Crusty, he came into her office to rave about Lily and the work she's been doing. Lily says she doesn't care. Crusty rolls her eyes at the impertinence and then cuts through the crap: "All right. Is he being inappropriate with you? You. Not...Slacker Barbie." Heh. Lily admits that he's not. "But he was. And what consequences has he suffered?" Oh, get off it, Rick. Part of me suspects that Lily's bothered by Graham's attentions toward Boobies (should that be Slacker Boobies?) because he seems to have gotten over her -- the "eclipse" -- so quickly. Crusty looks like she's biting her tongue. She moves to her desk and starts rifling through papers. Lily watches her, waiting for a response. Finally, she prompts, "Christy?" Crusty quietly says that she feels "somewhat, um, unappreciated." Lily stiffens. Crusty continues, her voice brittle, "I gave you this opportunity. I deal with having a semi-competent assistant, and I try to support you, which is...somewhat difficult for me, and what do I get but complaints? And anger." She folds her arms and takes a seat, giving Lily a steely look before adding, "Not everyone would do this, Lily. Not everybody goes out on a limb for their assistant. And maybe the situation has flaws, but...you never even thanked me!" Lily looks properly chastised, and clutches her hand to her chest, all verklempt. She chokes out a thank you and then repeats it, more emphatically. "Don't mention it," Crusty says.
Waiting for the elevator that evening, Lily realizes that she forgot her cell phone. She races back into the deserted offices, and grabs it off her desk. She spins around, dialing, and happens to glance into Graham's office. Her mouth falls open. Cut to Graham and Boobies making out. Boobies opens her eyes and catches Lily staring at them like a perv. Lily turns abruptly and rushes out. Boobies catches up to her at the elevators. She asks if she's in trouble, to which Lily storms, "You know, you don't have to take this from him." Boobies is even more confused than usual. She says, "I'm not taking anything," and then explains that she "just sorta went for it." Lily stares at her in disbelief. "Sorry," Boobies says, all cutesy. Lily gets into the elevator and stares stonily ahead while the doors close.
