So, as Carrie languishes in jury duty limbo, avec laptop, she ponders "trial separations... How can two people mired in the mess ever figure it out? Do we need distance to get close?" Carrie: WHY would you want to get closer to Berger? He's not that nice, he's wounded from the scrunchie thing, and he's trying to wound you. Drop it and move the hell on.
Miranda walks into a meeting a few minutes late, and is surprised to learn that the meeting isn't about the MacKenzie file, but rather about her. She's been late, and mishandling her case load. Miranda smiles and says to her female co-worker, "Way to watch my back. Where I'm doing a bad job is at home. So if you'll excuse me...and may I remind you that when my mother died, I was back in the office on Monday." Wow, I think Miranda could totally have a case against her employers if they try to fire her. I have a friend who keeps a file of everything objectionable that her employer has said to her, about having children or other employees becoming pregnant. It's so outrageous. You know, like "if you ever decide to get pregnant, give me a little notice." Why, so you can fire her ass before she even conceives? That's so illegal.
