Debbie's house. Justin's at the door. I don't know how he found out where she lives, but Debbie, you have my permission to shoot the person who told him. Christ, this kid. Chill out! Debbie puts a hand on her and hip and says, "Don't tell me -- Brian, right?" It's always Brian. And if anyone should be hostile towards Brian, it's Debbie. Maybe she and Melanie have some sort of deal. Justin nods eagerly. Because she's P-FLAG mother to the world, she invites him in for a sandwich. I snicker, because Justin was already a part of a sandwich Saturday night. Justin, realizes that this whole food thing is probably going to take a while, tells her that he just needs to know where to find Brian. Debbie tells him not to talk -- she gets it. Justin shuts up, which just goes to show that miracles do happen. Thank you, Debbie. She picks up the phone, and then smiling grimly, says into the phone, "Michael? It's me. You've got 'Male.'"
Brian's loft. He's back home, unless he just ignored the intercom! Can't imagine why he wouldn't want to see Justin. Aside from the obvious, that is. Lindsay's there, wearing a fairly cool yellow-pants-and-patterned-t-shirt combo, and a blue leather jacket. I think those are her maternity pants, but I'm not going to rag on her, because it's about time we saw a woman on television who wasn't a size two. Yeah, yeah, I know, Camper gets political. Bite me. Lindsay tells Brian that Melanie feels "terrible about what she said." She does not. Brian's back to not caring. Lindsay says Ted's condition is upsetting for all of them, "but at times like this, we could try showing a little compassion." For Melanie? I don't think so. And if she's so sorry, why doesn't her sorry butt show up and apologize in person. Or pick up the phone? Lindsay adds, "Especially for Ted." Yeah, okay, 'cause Melanie gets nothing, whether she likes it or not. Lindsay asks if there's been any change. Brian replies, "The machines say he's still alive. What about us?" Brace for the philosophy: "We don't have any machines or wires telling us that we're alive. I guess we just have to take each other's word." QaF never has the Violins Of Angst when we need them. Lindsay: "Maybe we know from what people expect from us. I mean, take Gus. He needs me to feed him, change him. Knowing that tells me I'm alive. Right now, it's him." Brian asks what about him, because that's enough talking about someone else. Lindsay replies that Ted needs him: "So maybe that's what tells you that you're alive. You'll do the right thing. Whatever it is." Brian tells her that she doesn't know that, and I'm not taking odds on that, either.
