Once the little lady runs out of steam, Diane confirms that she's Kurt's wingnut protégée, and he reiterates that he's more interested in arguing with Diane than having some teabagger parrot his insane views back to him. So, charming as ever, when he changes course to how come it's taken Diane a whole year to turn up at his door, breathless and horny, she finds herself choosing her words almost as carefully as Alicia Florrick might. Then: kissin'!
GRACE, AS USUAL, IS
The unwilling patsy for a bunch of bullshit. Seems Marina the horrible real estate agent has done an end-run around Alicia, coming after the kids once again, this time with a ten-percent discount on the old Highland Park house. Once again Alicia tries to explain to her daughter that she is a gullible idiot, and once again Grace -- like the gullible idiot she is -- explains in all seriousness that Marina was acting without a real agenda. Alicia gets that Grace headache she gets, but of course Grace is also her Achilles Heel because she's such a sweet and funny daughter, so the financial pressure mounts. Don't do it, Alicia! I know you love her, we all secretly love her, but you cannot allow Grace to make your decisions for you! That is the worst plan!
Alicia: "So basically, they came after you because you checked Christian Lund in the previous game. You're much smaller than him, but he pissed you off and you took him down."
Duverney: "Don't give hockey players that much credit. I didn't do it out of honor, I did it because we are rabid beasts and I knew they'd come after one of our better players next. That's what any of us would do."
Canning: "Look, we all know I have a disease called tardive dyskinesia..."
Everybody: "Yes, it's very sad. Or not sad. Burdens. Or not a burden, just like... It's intense that you have that going on."
Canning: "But one thing I've never done is cheat a medical exam for the purposes of continuing to practice my profession while injured. You, like all hockey players, cheated on your baseline test to make it look like your capacities were already somewhat diminished, for future use in proving that your diminished capabilities after injury weren't so terrible. Yes?"
Canning: "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard."
Duverney: "Me too, but we're talking about hockey. Everybody does it. We are all brain-damaged sons of bitches."
