At Julia's, Joel is cleaning up kid toys, and wondering how it is that Julia had lunch with Timmmm, specifically to talk about Zeek's investment, and somehow failed to bring up... Zeek's investment. "It's just like I said," Julia says. "It got cut short for that conference call with Tokyo." Joel: "Tokyo. What a jerk." Hee. "He's a jerk because he had a conference call with someone in Tokyo?" Julia asks, and Joel very rightly says that, you know, he's allowed not to like someone. "Just like you never liked Stacey," he says. Julia insists that Stacey was not likeable. "She had that weird, tall-girl way of walking around," she says. "So arrogant!" Hey! I am tall! Excuse me while I go parade in front of the mirror to see if I look arrogant. Lord, I hope so. Joel suggests they have Timmmmm over for dinner. "No, no, no, no..." Julia says, but Joel insists that he'll behave, if Tim(mmm)m does. "Your dad needs help," he says. "And, he's been so kind to me over the years, what with the eunuch jokes." Ugh. Stupid Zeek. "So, you'd do this for me?" Julia asks, smiling and wrapping her arms around him. "If only he knew how much of a eunuch you're not." Joel laughs: "Let's tell him!" And they smooch it up. I really like Joel, and I love that he stays home with Sydney, but I wish they would do some backstory on how they came to this decision and why Julia, Madame Career, decided to have a baby at 25, anyway.
