Camper out. TLFKAM continues, "I'm glad I walked in when I did. Gus could have been scalded." Justin repeats that he's really sorry; Brian wants to know what the hell she's doing there. TLFKAM says that she got back early, and got a message from Lindsay about "Gus" being at Brian's, so she came by to check on him. Very sweet, but she more or less forfeited her privileges when she romped with the Sapphic Slut, didn't she? Whatever. She adds that it's a good thing she did -- because Justin doesn't feel bad enough -- and snaps, "Pawning him off on anyone so you can go to a fucking Leather Ball?" Way screwed up. Brian points out that Justin isn't just "anyone," and while that's true, dude, two days without anonymous sex so you can spend time with your son isn't hackable? Justin cries out that he loves "Gus." TLFKAM caresses him on the cheek and says she knows, and this isn't about him. She hands "Gus" to Justin and faces off against Brian: "This is about you, and what an irresponsible shit you are." Good point, but habit forces to me also to point out that TLFKAM wasn't exactly the model of baby-preservation behavior when she fucked the Sapphic Slut and basically left Lindsay high and dry with a mortgage, a baby, and extended maternity leave. That's dangerous to the baby's welfare, too. But we're not talking about what a shit TLFKAM is; we're talking about Brian. Sorry. Force of habit. Brian says that he only went out for a couple of hours. TLFKAM yells, "Yeah, well, the thing about parenthood is, you don't anonymous sex breaks twice a day." But you do get to have meaningless affairs and abandon the child you keep referring to as yours, if you feel like it. Grr. Okay. To her credit, TLFKAM is not the only one who'll be bringing the hypocrisy this ep (ease those shoulders down there, GuitarGal). St. L. will be home soon -- she of the See No-Check-From-Brian, Hear No-Check-From-Brian School of Motherhood. TLFKAM demands that Brian give her his car keys so she can get the car seat out of his Jeep, she's taking "Gus" home. "Gus" could seriously not care less, and I gotta tell you, this blasé attitude he's sporting is really starting to grow on me. Brian snorts, "No you're not. This is his home. At least for this weekend." TLFKAM snaps, "Your privileges have been revoked!" I'm sorry, his privileges have been revoked? Brian yells, "Don't fucking tell me what my privileges are! I'm his father. Who are you?" That was fairly harsh, but really, hello. TLFKAM kisses "Gus" on the forehead and says, "I may be no one, but at least I know that his needs come before mine. Which is more than can be said about you." Debatable. See: Sapphic Slut Incident and Aftermath. I'm not saying that she doesn't love the baby, because it's obvious she does. I merely suggest she trade in that high horse for a Shetland pony, ya know?
