George sits downstairs at the computer sometime later, and Ruth comes down in a bathrobe and tells him it's midnight. But he's hungry for facts and thirty for Naya, telling Ruth, "Take a look at this site." On the screen is white lettering on a blue screen trumpeting, "World Potable Water Supply," and below it is an hourglass dripping water from the top to the bottom rather than crystals of sand telling me I'm almost out of time in the latest round of "Facts In Five." Ruth tries to tell George that this is just someone's opinion, but he counters, "It's not an opinion. It's a scientific hypothesis." Ruth tells him how pessimistic she finds the whole thing, being all up with people as she tells him, "If it happens, we'll die. But in the meantime, can't we be happy?" George thinks that such simple emotions are for the layperson only, asking, "Happy? Ruth, I'm crawling my way to comfortable. I can't even think about being happy unless I'm doing something to help save this planet." Like marrying everyone on it, populating it with sociopaths, and chopping down other people's trees? She tells him he's obsessing and that he she come to bed, and he sighs deeply because he also thought "potable" was a word that had been invented entirely for Jeopardy! also.
"Lisa is here with us right now," a woman standing over an urn promises a small congregation. Oh, I beg to differ. "Not in this urn." You can say that again. "But in all of us." Maya is sleeping. If Mommy's ashes could dance around like a purple dinosaur, you'd have her back in no time.
Aaaaaaand, speaking of funerals, we're back at Robert Duane Wething's final rest, and in The Room Where People Are Sad, the Bride Of FrankenDeadGuy tells a blonde crying girl, "I want the crying to stop. Now...We're not leaving here until this stops." She leans in really close to the girl now and tries the hard sell: "Halley? Do you want to go to the Cheesecake Factory or not, because we are not leaving here until this stops." Dammit! I haven't been to the Cheesecake Factory in, like, forEVER. David makes an appearance just then, trying as much diplomacy as possible, asking, "Excuse me?" Bride Of FrankenDeadGuy bites his head off asking him what he wants, and David reminds her, "She's lost her father." Bride Of FrankenDeadGuy stands and tells him to "shut up," adding, "This is none of your business." And just like that, Halley stops crying. Straight parents are terrible!
