David loiters in The Pasqueasel's living room. Upstairs, said Pasqueasel is doing his best Maggie the Cat impression on his ornate four-poster bed while Keith laces up his shoes. He took his shoes off? That must have been one thorough blowjob. The Pasqueasel agrees to drop the charges against David, but suggests that Keith get him some Prozac or a muzzle. That sounds like a great idea. Oh, wait. I was thinking about Rico. Shut up, Rico. Keith makes excuses. But what about Keith? He's just trying to be strong for David. "Must get a little old." Keith shakes his head, but The Pasqueasel keeps pressing until Keith vents a bit: "I wish he'd figure out a way to deal with it rather than having these episodes...It's like living with an invalid." I see his point, but that's a little harsh, considering he's pretty much putting down his significant other to somebody outside the relationship. Who, you know, just sucked him off. The Pasqueasel strokes the blankets seductively, saying, "You know, if you ever need anyone to unload on..." But Keith's done all the unloading on The Pasqueasel he's going to do. "Better go find your boyfriend before he bites my cat or something," The Pasqueasel says. He doesn't seem to have much buyer's remorse for a guy who just gave up half a million dollars for the privilege of giving a blowjob.
Keith finds David downstairs, sitting quietly without a mouthful of bloody fur. "How was it?" David asks. Keith just wants to get home and shower. He puts his arm around David and they walk out together, looking like a father and son who have just learned that it's not about winning, it's how you play the game.
Rico's all but got his hand down his pants in front of the TV when the phone rings. It's Vanessa, all straight-haired again and pissed off because Julie called with the news that Rico cut her loose. Rico explains that he's tired of his kids being left with a babysitter while their mom's out with "Kenny fucking Sims." Vanessa says it's none of Rico's business, and Rico says that he has the right to see his kids whenever he wants. Vanessa yields the point: "You can stay with them all night, 'cause I'm not coming home." And she hangs up. Rico thinks, Yay, I won! Wait, no I didn't. Shit. Thank you, Vanessa, for shutting up Rico.
But who will shut up Brenda? Not Nate, who defensively says, "Look, it's what she wanted, all right?" Brenda puts on her hurt-yet-understanding act, which just pisses Nate off more. She's still upset that he's keeping things from her and she storms off, saying, "Just tell me when you're ready to let me in and make me part of your fucking life." Too bad we didn't see the scene where Brenda told Nate about her reunion with the fucked-up brother who nearly destroyed their relationship the first time around. Because I'm sure she shared that at the very first opportunity, aren't you? Nate rubs his face in frustration. I'm the first to admit that I'm the furthest thing from an expert on this show, what with this being only the second episode I've ever seen in its entirety, but when did Brenda get into a position where she can be making demands in this relationship? ["Well, speaking as someone who's seen every episode, she...never." -- Wing Chun] Poor Nate, ruled by his need for the Brenda booty. There's another fade to white, but there are still no commercials. Dammit.
