We get an exterior shot of a car driving by a building on a dark street, signifying the passing of enough time for Jane to fill Nicki in on everything. "You haven't told Michael? About John, about any of this?" Nicki asks Jane. Jane says that she hasn't, but that Michael knows something is up. I'll say. "I love Michael," Jane says. Keep those three words in mind, because I think you'll see a very strange demonstration of "love" later on in the episode. Jane says she can't believe she's doing this to him. "And for what? For John? I mean, he can barely speak. He won't wear shoes." (a) He can totally speak. And (b) You've never offered a pair of shoes for him to wear. Nicki looks at Jane like, "This is all so romantic. My sister loves an apeman." Jane's still ranting about how Tarzan is uncontrollable and doesn't understand anything. "It's like he's from a different planet." The planet of the Republic of Congo, perhaps? "And my God, talk about a traumatic background!" Ba-dum-bum. Even Nicki has to squint and blink at that shitty joke. Jane then delivers the worst line of the episode: "What am I thinking? I'm not thinking. That's the problem." She leans forward and exhales. "Um," says Nicki. She asks if she's allowed to speak now. Um, you totally had the first line of the scene. Nicki says that maybe it's a good thing that Jane's not thinking. Wow, I thought Jane's lines were bad, but check this: "Mom always said you think too much. Maybe you should just listen to how you feel." Vomit. Everywhere. Jane says she's got to put Tarzan somewhere safe, but after that she's got to wash that primate right out of her hair: "I'm not gonna see him...ever again."
