Actually, it was one of the twenty-seven people now assembled in The House That Government Subsidy Built. Kyle is recounting to the usual suspects that Jesse was pushed into a van and taken by the FBI. Max barks directions of where everyone is to go, but Michael challenges his direction to go to Isabel's apartment on the basis that he's "not gonna sit on [his] ass and wait for something to happen." That sounds like something I wrote about this show in 1999. Max and Michael square off with words, and Isabel wails for everyone to fall in line because her husband's life is at stake and blee blee foo fah.
Michael storms out, and suddenly we're in a car -- is it the Jetta? -- where Michael is driving recklessly, indeed. Maria notes that they're not heading in the right direction to get to Isabel's apartment, and Michael moodily notes, "We're not going to Isabel's apartment. We're doing things my way now." Maria half-counters, "Max said..." but Michael cuts her off with, "Max should have stayed dead." Because sometimes dead is betta. A-yuh. A mini-fight ensues about how Jesse needs to be stopped and that "Nasedo had it right. When someone finds out, they should be eliminated." Nase-who? Maria chuckles, "Well then, that should apply to me too, huh?" Michael: "You said it, I didn't." Oh, touché. Maria tries to excuse Michael by poorly delivering the undeliverable, "This is you!" Moody, self-righteous, and portraying his character with one note so long and so loud that all of the neighborhood dogs start barking when they hear it? Yeah, we're steady on with Michael still being Michael. Everything looks status quo from here. He rants on that Maria never listened to him, and that he stayed on the planet for her and then she goes ahead and dumps his sorry ass. She's flustered. He's angry. She's incredulous. He's...glowing? Maria notes the five triangulated light bulbs on Michael's chest. Michael freaks out and pulls over to the side of the road, spilling Maria out onto the street with the line, "You never shut up now get out!" and peeling off in a damn hurry. I can't find any of the new Sheryl Crow songs on-line, people. And I also hear that the new Elvis Costello album is pretty darn good.
