Lucas asks, "So, Dan. Actually saved me, huh?" Keith replies, "I have to say, most of the time, he's an ass, but that night, he was definitely a hero." Lucas gets all troubled-looking -- which, frankly, only makes him resemble Clay Aiken, and gives me a headache from the cognitive dissonance -- and asks, "Where am I supposed to put that?" In a little box labeled "Dan will use you to hurt his own son sometime"? That's where I'd put it. But I'm something of an organization freak. Anyway, Karen comes in and the temperature drops ten degrees, so Keith takes off before he gets frostbite. Lucas goes to put in a good word for the guy, and Karen says, "Get back in bed." She's understated, that Karen.
The next day, at the most attractively landscaped garage I've ever seen, the writers establish how Keith has no money and it's hurting his business. The background music is appropriately downbeat and broody. Naturally, right after Keith suffers an emasculating experience at the hands of a wholesale supplier, Karen comes along to finish the job. She returns the stuff he left at her house, and says she'll pay him back for Luke's medical bills, in a tone of voice that suggests she's bracing herself for Madame Loisel's life. Keith's all about how it wasn't a loan and he was merely paying for a mistake, and Karen's pulse actually rises above baseline as she points out that his mistake nearly lost her the sullen and duplicitous Lucas. Ah, the blinding force of motherly love.
