Meanwhile, at Woody's, Justin's wandering around without a shirt. He spots Brian and saunters over. Brian is less than elated. Justin tells Brian that he should take his shirt off, because he'll get a free drink. Brian: "I don't show my tits for a watered-down Bud." The Straight Girl Contingent coughs nervously. Justin asks Brian to buy him a drink. Brian tells him to buy his own. Justin reminds him that he's underage. Whew! This sexy banter is leaving me light-headed. Brian tells him that he should go home to his mom, who's probably worried. Justin relates the shrink story. Brian: "Well, maybe she's trying to understand you." He's a brat. What's there to understand? As far as I'm concerned, his mom is trying to treat the wrong problem. Justin's not so great with the casual repartee, because really, who believes that he hasn't been hanging around Liberty Ave. all night just looking for Brian? Justin asks Brian what his parents did when he told them he was gay. Brian's already spotted his next conquest across the bar, but is paying enough attention to tell Justin that his parents didn't do anything, because he never told them. "It's not their life." Brian says, standing up, ready to walk over to his next one-night stand. "I don't need their approval." Justin contemplates that as Brian walks away -- and spots Daphne running through the door. Huh? Practically hyperventilating, she tells Justin that it wasn't her fault, that her mom answered the phone and told his mom that Justin wasn't at her house, and Daphne didn't know what to do, so she brought his mom to the bar. Huh? Justin is ten types of horrified when he sees his "It's a good thing"-Ann-Taylor-wearing Mother walk in the door and take in all the shirtless gay boys. Justin tries to back up, but it's too late; Mommy sees him, and gives him this heartbreaking look that even I felt down into my toes. Justin bolts.
Brian and This Night's Trick murmur together. And who else should be checking Brian out from afar but Mr. Potential Client Man? Yup, that's right -- Telson is at the other end of the bar, next to the only black guy to make it in front of a camera so far. No Good, I'm telling you.
