Brian's. The Trick du Nuit puts on his pants. Brian mopes on the bed, still naked. TDN looks at La Kinney for a second, then sits down next to him and says: "Did you ever see Citizen Kane?" Brian mopes that he has. TDN continues, "All my life, all I've heard is how it's the greatest fucking movie ever made. So I finally rent it. The guy who plays the lead is fat. The story about some sled sucks. And it's in black and white." Moron. Brian drawls, "Maybe you were expecting too much." TDN snaps, "Like with you." I fell. Off the couch. LAUGHING. TDN continues, "All I ever heard is how Brian Kinney is the greatest fuck ever. If you ask me, you're both highly overrated." Snicker. Brian sighs, "Everybody's a critic." I'd be a little more concerned, if I were Brian. So much for the street rep, ya know? TDN follows Brian as he opens the door...and there's Jennifer, about ready to knock. Gasp! Brian's still naked. Jennifer is discombobulated. Brian acts like nothing's amiss. Jennifer flusters, "I came at the wrong time." With a look at TDN, Brian snaps, "You two have a lot in common." TDN stomps out. Brian lollygags across the room and grabs some pants. Jennifer follows him in and mumbles, "This place is very...glamorous." Brian replies that it "does the trick." Jennifer: "I'm sure." Jennifer tells him she's a realtor now, if he ever feels like selling. Brian cuts to the chase and says that Justin isn't there. Jennifer knows that, which is why she came over. She wants to ask a favor. Brian points out that he already did her a favor. Jennifer's like, uh, not the right one: "This one's for him. I want you to take him." Brian wonders what the hell she's talking about, while I start to get very, very afraid. Jennifer says that Justin won't let anyone near him, that he shows no emotion unless he's throwing a temper tantrum, and that he's having nightmares: "But that's not even the worst part. The worst part is standing there, helpless. Do you have any idea what that feels like?" Rather than explore that, Brian asks what she wants him to do. Jennifer actually says, "Touch him. Help him be touched." Brian asks straight out if she wants him to have sex with Justin. Jennifer sighs, "You're the one he trusts. If that's what it takes." Give me a fuckin' break. She's going to trust her son's emotional well-being to Liberty Street's Official Fuckwit? What, does her alimony not cover the cost of professional, experienced therapy? Brian reminds her that she didn't even want them to see each other. Jennifer says she still doesn't, but she thinks this is the only chance to get Justin back to normal. Unbelievable.
