Back in professional mode, Violet tells Addison she doesn't think Rebecca fits the Munchausen profile. Addison is focused on herself (for a change). "Do you think I'm personalizing this case? Like maybe I need to believe in the happy miracle baby?" Violet's thinking about herself, as evidenced by her response: "Well, instinct's a bitch, right? You only know if you can trust it after the fact." She comes to the awkward realization that in order for this conversation to continue -- since it's clearly not about Rebecca anymore -- they will have to "share," as if they were "friends," even though they're not. Neither woman is thrilled about this. "Yes! Let's...share," says Violet, with absolutely no enthusiasm. So Addison manages to communicate, without ever completing an actual sentence, that she has "fertility issues" and is "cranky about it." She gives up. "The sharing, it's not so good." Violet is a little more comfortable now that she sees an opportunity to bring the conversation around to Cami and her obsession with same. "I don't even want kids, but the thought of my ex's new wife having one? It's making me nuts!" "No, it's better to know. Just get through it," says Addison. Do I even need to point out that this response doesn't track, logically? You know how sometimes the directions you get from MapQuest will tell you to make a turn you can't actually make, because there's no bridge or intersection connecting the roads? That's what the dialogue on this show is like, constantly using imaginary bridges to get from point A to point B. So anyway, Violet complains, "Naomi won't tell me anything," and that gets Addy fired up. "Let me tell you something about Naomi," she says, her face contorting into a sneer. "Don't let her tell you what you can and cannot know." In a superior tone that suggests mild drunkenness, she tells Violet to take the file and get her answers herself. Violet appraises her and pronounces, "You're a little bit of a crazy, you know that?" Takes one to know one, I guess. "Yeah," Addison agrees; she's not exactly flattered, but she's not going to deny it, either. "I like you," Violet continues. Addison's not sure how to respond to that --she looks like she could use a big mouthful of cake. I know they ended up bonding and all, but I'm still not sure that conversation was good for anybody.
Cooper's young pact-partner comes into his office, red-faced and angry, with blood streaming from his nose. (It's a normal nosebleed, not a disgusting projectile nosebleed like that lady had last week.) "I knew I shouldn't have said anything!" the boy says, as Cooper checks out the bruise on his cheek. "Michael, who did this to you?" Cooper asks (at last, we have a name for the kid). "Brian," says Michael. "Who's Brian?" asks Cooper. "He's the one I asked out," Michael says. "The one I love." Ooh, a twist! Of course, it's kind of a cheap twist, since Michael did not correct Cooper's multiple references to "she" and "her" when they made their pact. So I guess we can't blame Cooper for this. I'm kind of disappointed it wasn't a girl who punched him, though.
