Frances: "Oh, honey. This isn't how it's done."
Frances: "Asking someone for a date."
He disappears offscreen, leaving her hanging, and then abruptly jumps back to the table.
Terry: "YOU LIKE SPAGHETTI?"
And then he's gone. It's adorable, and not in a pathetic way. Like, she laughs to herself, but it's not at his extent. She just gets to go on a date with Terry Donovan: Despite the many obstructions, that gets to happen now. It makes me wonder about their roles growing up. Like Ray was probably the enforcer and Bunchy's still the baby, so maybe Terry was the Gross One or at least the Weird One and he still doesn't know that this has made him into a wondrous jungle cat of a person. I can see Mickey really hammering that one home when they were little: He barely pays attention to him now, when he's clearly the best thing these assholes have got going.
Avi: "Okay, the witness guy is talking to the cops and so it's really happening now."
Ray: "Thank goodness. What a load off. I hope that doesn't get radically fucked up in one second."
Tasha Yar is asleep on his shoulder; he and Abby grin at each other. It's not fully okay, but it's sweet. It's an opening. Next week is Abby's finest hour, by the way, so I feel okay about the amount of bitching about her this week.
Bunchy at least hides the check when Mickey comes home, bearing two black strippers with butts -- who know how to twerk, he clarifies -- and one of them is named Cinderella, and this is how Mickey shows his love. I find that so fucking compelling, I really do.
And as Lena continues being weird to some lesbian we'll never meet and doesn't even exist off the page, probably, Ray follows his wife into the kitchen and does all his sexy Ray stuff and eventually she gives in -- "I'm still fucking mad at you, Ray" -- in a particularly Abby way, like, she's certainly not going to let you get the impression you are cool or okay or anything. Bridget takes a picture of her butt for MGW, and it's adorable because being a teenager is a funny experience, while down the hall Ray is fucking Abby without even taking his briefs all the way down, and she's been waiting long enough that he has to cover her mouth up with his hand while he does it. Very grownup.
