Alan Ball: What? Why?
Aaron: Hey, don't say I didn't warn you! He just quoted the Bible. Right there. You heard him. I'm suing for fifty million.
Alan Ball: Oh, please. We wrote this script like six months ago. Not everything is all about you, you know.
Aaron: Yeah, well, how do you explain the rest of it?
Alan Ball: What rest of it?
Aaron: "The only God I know is a mean-spirited comedian in ugly pants whose every joke has the same damn punchline?" Come on! I mean, yeah, I'm gratified to see that you and the rest of the SFU staff have recognized my many God-like attributes, but what's up with the slam on my pants?
Alan Ball: Dude, you're a freak. How on Earth do you figure that "every joke has the same punchline" has anything at all to do with you?
Aaron: Get out. Now.
Live Nate arrives in the room now, and they chat for a moment about Brenda and her wacky massage schedule. Then Nate asks how long David dated the Big Black Sex Cop. When he hears it was about six months, he asks if the Big Black Sex ever slowed down any. "I was so hoping you weren't going to go there," replies David. Heh. Then Claire comes running in, bawling and begging David for help. Hmm. I wonder why she picked David this time. Maybe we'll find out!
But not just yet, however, as we switch over to Ruth and Robbie in a bar. They're all giddy and laughing over Ruth's "fuck" outburst, especially the "fuck my legless grandmother" part of it all. And if I know this show as well as I think I do, we'll probably be seeing old pictures of that legless lady any episode now. Robbie asks what she's planning to do the next day to continue her renovations, and Ruth answers, "That's none of your fucking business." This prompts even more laughter, and then Ruth spies a couple making out in the corner. There's still gales of laughter from both her and Robbie, and then they end up in an embrace that looks almost as if they're about to kiss. Who wants to lay odds on that one happening?
Back at the Fortress, we finally do see why Claire went to David. Keith is there, pulling the gun out of her backpack while wearing surgical gloves. He gently interrogates Claire about Gabe, asking where he might have gone and what he was wearing. Claire sadly tries to cooperate, but she's not getting a lot of support from Nate, who's quite clearly furious at Gabe for everything he's done. Keith assures her that she's doing the right thing, and David is surprisingly compassionate as well. When Nate asks Claire why she's still protecting "that loser," Keith's answer is simple: "Because she loves him." That shuts everyone up, including the people watching at my apartment, and finally Keith continues by adding that he'll bring her down to the station whenever she's ready. "Will you be there?" she asks. "Yes," he answers. "I'll be there." And as he and David share a meaningful glance over the "I'll be there" part, we slowly fade to white.
