I like how Abby's always so special with Deb. More and more she seems like a maternal figure in some ways -- or at least like a sexy aunt -- to Ezra's fatherly influence. Like, who knows how embroiled she's been, historically, in the Donovans' lives. Was Ruth even a factor, or was it always Deb? The shadow side of Ezra's life, for his adopted son. Abby sure treats her that way, but then we never met Ruth. Maybe it was always awkward, when Ruth was alive, caring about them both. I'm intrigued to think about it, especially because Abby never gets to spend time with women (or being nice, to anybody at all).
Of course all it takes is a second alone before Mickey introduces the idea of Cinderella taking Bunchy upstairs to "christen" the house -- just like he did with grandma, he tells a delightedly grossed-out Bunch -- and send them upstairs.
So just as a rando is handing Conor a joint downstairs, Bunchy's up there when his Cinderella blowjob turns into a Father Deadguy blowjob, and he freaks out. Cinderella, who seems painfully uninformed about the particulars here, is offended and leaves, and a horrified and embarrassed Bunchy responds to this sudden painful moment of trauma by sobbing and, once his breathing has settled down, setting fire to a Red Sox (Boston, maybe even "sox" = "sex") banner on his wall, and watching it burn.
Downstairs, Terry and Bridget discuss their love lives. Is Frances his girlfriend? He thinks about it: Yeah, that's what she is. That's also all she is, but it's the compromise he can handle this week.
Terry: "What about MGW?"
Bridget: "I think so?"
Terry: "Yeah. He seems really smart."
Bridget, awesome: "Oh my God, honestly? I think he's the smartest person I've ever met. Mom called him ghetto! So offensive! (PS I love it!)"
Terry: "What the hell do you think your dad was, when she met him?"
Which is hilarious because I'm sure it's true, but Ray has adjusted to life so much better than Abby -- who is, let's face it, kind of a pit bull -- that you can barely imagine the class-violating Lady & The Tramp story that ensued. Don't you imagine her with giant mall hair back then?
Anyway, Bunchy comes downstairs looking dicked up, and after a while they realize that the house is on fire, and half the family knows immediately what has basically happened, between the look of him and the fact that he bought a disposable crack den with a hundred couches in the first place.
