But you're not a bad person. You are not an asshole. Chances are you're pretty great. Shit like this drives me insane because they have us trained to always have somebody to blame, to always find the bad guy in every situation, to join Team Aniston or Team Jolie, to join Team Riri or Team Breezy, that everything is even and there's always one person to love and one person to hate, one person to identify with and one person to demonize, and that whole thing is childish and stupid. It keeps you in the mindset of being owed, of being a victim, of being powerless, when none of those things are true. It works against you.
You, working overtime to make sure somebody else is the bad guy, so nobody can ever call you the bad guy. How about for one day you stop trying to identify the bad guy, and operate on the assumption that there's no such thing? Just one day without a single finger pointed. Could change your life.
Everybody's drinking, Veronica is nit-picking some more, still drunkenly yelling about how whether or not she lied or Owen lied, the principle of the thing is that she deserved the money.
Alicia: "I'm fine. I didn't say anything."
Veronica: "You don't have to say anything, with that look of yours."
Everybody Ever On This Show: "I know, right?"
Jackie shows up with some kind of Cuban alcohol and Fabulous Cristian, who tells her she can't drink any wine and she's only allowed to take one pill, etc. Alicia, at home, and Diane, at work, both crack up at Breslow's ongoing bullshit on TV:
"...Not every case is built for the Supreme Court. Sometimes you just have to win it. And that's what I decided here. We discussed the possibility of a test case, but in the final analysis Mr. Lamborne's freedom was key..."
Oh, this was amazing. In the kitchen:
Jackie: "I'm so glad you decided to visit! Zach and Grace were wondering about their other grandmother..."
Veronica: "I heard you nearly died."
Jackie: "A stroke. From helping out with the kids, by myself..."
Veronica: "Well, at least you got a young companion out of it. How much does he charge?"
Jackie: "$40 an hour. You should consider it. You won't have to go begging for male attention."
Veronica: "Yeah, paying for it seems to run in your family."
