Liberty Diner. Cut to Debbie, all P-FLAG'ed out, arms open wide. Christ, her t-shirt says, "I love my penis!" I shudder to think which one she claims is hers. If it's Mike's, this might explain a lot. Debbie exclaims, "Come and give your mother a hug!" Mike cautiously asks, "Promise to let me go this time?" Debbie promises, then wraps him up in a big ole hug. Feeling his back, she complains that Mike's lost a lot of weight. From the back of the room, Melanie calls, "What the hell have you been eating out there, nuts and berries?" She and Lindsay get up from a booth they're sharing with Gus, and take their turns giving Mike a hug. They're both wearing tank-top-y shirts, no bras, and tight jeans. They look damn good, too. Debbie says that she'll get him something to eat. Mike wanders over to the booth and asks what's up with all the papers on the table. Lindsay expositions that Chris Hobbes's sentencing is coming up in a few days, and the three women are organizing the local gay-friendly community to fill up the courtroom. Mike kisses Melanie on the cheek and says that Justin's lucky to have her looking after him. Melanie gripes that Brian, however, hasn't been to see Justin once! St. L. adds that every time they visit, Justin just wants to know where Brian is. Mel snarls, "Getting his dick sucked, that's where's Brian." St. L. ('cause the "L" still stands for "love") says that she's not sticking up for him, but she understands how hard this might be for Brian; furthermore, she compares his experience to that of combat veterans, and says that it might just "be too painful for him to have to face." Right. Or he could just be an ass. Show of hands? Debbie snorts, "To see a poor, hurt kid?" Mike shakes his head, "You weren't there that night, you didn't see Brian. In shock, with blood all over him? It was like he got the shit beat out of him, too." But he didn't. This is not Brian Kinney's tragedy. Debbie snorts, "If you ask me, he's still an asshole." Word. Lindsay and Mel break up the tension by getting ready to go, going on about "getting their hair done," "getting their manicures," "before [their] dates arrive!" Mike's all, say what? Lindsay's sister is getting married, and Melanie adds, "And the less said, the better." I couldn't agree more.
