"I first saw him on Southport," says Nurse Debbie in the interrogation room. Or I guess whatever you call it, since she's not being interrogated. Either way, she's being quite the little actress (despite the random jump-cuts) and it's almost as fun watching her pull this thing off as it is watching Fiona's jaw drop at the sheer sociopath nature of her sister. "He caught my eye, because my baby brother Liam loves Superman."
"After I noticed he was alone, I took his hand. He's a very good walker, and very well-mannered for a toddler..." "I thought for sure someone would let me use their phone. You know, I'm just so shocked at the lack of humanity..." "Yes, I'd love a cookie!" "I remember Grand Avenue from my Aunt Ginger...."
And my favorite: "Do they require you to wear a jacket and tie, or is that your choice? I find it very fetching!" Debbie was my favorite one on the UK version, mostly because of shit like that and because she has a heart bigger than the sun. You instinctively knew she was going to save the world, and eventually she did. I still think on this one it's going to be Lip and Fiona, though, who coincidentally were my least favorite ones on the UK show. I mean, don't compare, but at this point I think it's more fun to see and celebrate how they differ.
Tony drives Fiona home -- Deb's tuckered out, of course -- and Fiona just barely apologizes for how she totally dicked him over last week. It's really sad, he's all, "You missed a good pot roast last week. My mom really pulled out all the stops," and she's just like, "My bad" and then stares out the window. I would say it's oddly cruel, but maybe we're setting up a pattern of behavior on Fiona's part, or Tony's going to end up crazy in love or something, and we can be like, "That's why you are never a bitch to cops unless you have a really good reason. Especially if you stamped their V card. Especially-especially totally hot ones that are 100% down for sloppy seconds or a rebound. Be Prepared isn't just a saying for bigots and homophobes."
Karen is: Pleased that Debbie "found" Casey, rather than some "crazy fucker" per Lip; wearing new jeans that still haven't cheered her up since the return of Eddie which is just making her weird house weirder; interested in getting kidnapped; interested in going back to her house and fucking in the tire swing. Once again, I am saying that Karen is a freaking genius. The best is the silence after she suggests that, and she's like, "Lip?" and he grins and goes, "Wait, I'm thinking." It's really cute.
