In the Salinger kitchen, Victor points out a job in the paper to Daphne, and says it "looks promising." Daphne doesn't respond because she is gazing dreamily out the window at Griffin. Victor notes that Griffin "looks even more promising." Daphne says that she can't start anything with Griffin because it would be "too weird," and Victor counters that it would be "too perfect." Daphne says that Griffin isn't interested anyway, and Victor says she should make him interested. Daphne asks how she's supposed to do that, and says in a mock-sensuous way, "Oh, Griffin, oh!" What she doesn't know is that Griffin has walked into the kitchen during that last part and he says, "What?" I have to admit that I giggled at the expressions on Daphne and Victor's faces. Daphne tries to cover and when Griffin turns his back, Victor and Daphne have one of those gesture-laden, silent conversations over what she should do next. Daphne tells Griffin that she has a job interview and Victor makes an obvious mention of Daphne's car not working. Griffin asks about the car and Daphne and Victor do that two-different-answers-at-the-same-time thing, last employed to great effect on shows like Full House. Griffin gets the hint and offers Daphne a ride. After he walks out, Daphne tells Victor he's pure evil and he says she's welcome and does a weird smoothing down her hair type gesture. I love Victor. He's easily my favorite person on this show. But that gesture was a little much.
Evan and Julia are walking down the street, and Evan is babbling about something. Julia says, "I know this is completely none of my business..." and I can't believe that she's going to just butt out! Except she continues, "But you wanna tell me what happened with Brian this morning?" Wasn't she standing right there? She saw what happened. Evan tries to downplay the argument, saying that it's a game between them. He reveals that he doesn't talk to his son very often, and that he feels Brian just acts out to get a reaction from him. Julia says maybe it would be cheaper to just react, referring to all the tuition money Evan has spent. Evan says he tried that, he tried crying, he even tried family therapy. He wonders if he became a father too young, since he was only eighteen when Brian was born. I was wondering about that! Evan feels like everything he says to Brian is wrong, so now he just doesn't say anything. ["My mom was younger than that when I was born, and I managed to keep my ass in university. I'm just sayin'. So that's no excuse." -- Wing Chun]
