GETTING THINGS DONE
Anne goes through all their charts reading their patient narratives and trying to figure everything out. Which is funny, because she doesn't have like any of the facts, but she's narrowed A down to one single patient. Anne, you are on this mother. Go for it!
This person's totally psycho chart:
Q: "What are the problems you're seeking help for?"
A: "Overpowering feelings of revenge and anger management."
Q: "Ever had the desire to harm yourself?"
A: "No -- only others."
And: ...Outbursts of anger and aggression. Client seems confused about ... assumes it is their job to "police" and monitor all activity in the neighborhood... Often refers to unnamed adversaries as [sic] "nosey bitches"...
Meanwhile, Anne: "Gosh, that sounds familiar. I better turn off yet more lights until this scary room is as scary as possible for when I get murdered in like a minute."
Dad: "Hey, did you puke everywhere?"
Hanna: "Bad shrimp."
Dad: "Bunch of vodka, you mean. And then you barfed all over the wedding dress."
Regina: "Let me talk to my granddaughter, please."
Hanna: "Kate was drinking too! All we had to eat was shrimp!"
Dad: "Meanwhile Kate is poised and alert and just gave a great toast while you were in here barfing on the wedding dress."
(Scary dads! Everywhere!)
Regina: "Back the fuck up, dude. I wish she'd barfed on Isabel."
Dad: "You guys are not invited anymore to this thing."
Hanna: (Feels horrible; gets a hug.)
Aria: "Okay, Mike's scaring me so let's get it all out there."
Ella: "You know what..."
Aria: "No. This episode is about confessing, and I've been hanging onto this forever, and I don't see how it's helping Mike to not talk about everything at once. Mike broke into lots of houses, and I covered it up because your marriage is so untenable. But I am sick of secrets. Also, keeping you guys' secrets nearly killed me that time Dad cheated on you, so you can't hold this against me. Also, this is like the cutest I have ever looked. Just puttin' that out there."
Mikey: (Even when terribly sad, still looks like a movie star.)
