Dog Dead Afternoon

Nikolai's Flower Shop For The Foolishly Over-Informative. Ruth is working alone on some arrangements when Yuri walks in, demanding to see Nikolai. Ruth explains that he's out on a delivery, and then offers to pay off his debts herself. She actually has to make the offer three times before Yuri will admit that Nikolai owes eighty-seven thousand dollars. She's shocked by the amount, but nonetheless stands up to grab a duffel bag from behind the counter. Now it's Yuri's turn to be shocked, as Ruth starts pulling out wads of cash and stuffing them into a paper bag. "Nikolai is a very lucky man," he says as she hands over the money. He asks for her name, and she instantly replies, "Ruth. Ruth Fisher." Then she tells him her address, her ATM code, and even offers to write down her Social Security number for him. Well, not really, but she might as well have. Geez. You'd think the woman had never paid off the mafia before. Doesn't she at least watch The Sopranos? Where's that vaunted AOL Time Warner synergy when you really need it? Yuri turns to leave, but not before admitting that he would have taken a check instead of cash. Then he walks out, and heads down to the Pine Barrens to catch up with some old friends.

Cut to The Promiscuity Palace, where Brenda sits in her living room and fires up the biggest bong hit I've ever seen. For those of you in the forums wondering why she didn't clear the chamber, I can tell you it's because the gently billowing smoke in there makes for a cool shot as we hit a nice music cue and fade into a dream sequence. I mean, come on. Did you really believe the SFU staff would make such a major marijuana-related blunder? I don't think so. In the dream, Brenda is a little girl again, and she wanders into one of her parents' "lifestyle" parties. As young Brenda takes in the hookah on the table and half-naked couples macking all over the place, we hear Zhora's voice from off-screen, telling her to go back to bed. You know, it's a crying shame that we can only hear Ma and Pa Chenowith in this scene, because if there was ever going to be an opportunity for Joanna Cassidy to bust the old transparent raincoat out of the closet, this would have been it. Oh, well.

The following scene has been brought to you by the letter "K." Keith visits Karla at the jail, and they diskuss whether or not Taylor should go to live with Kersh or not. Karla doesn't want her daughter growing up in an abusive home like she did, and begs Keith not to allow it. Keith, however, seems to think it's a good idea. Not much else happens, so let's just move on.
