Will: "No, I'm not busy! I mean I'm totally busy, actually. Do you actually need something?"
Laura: "Let's get a move on! Second base, mister!"
Alicia: "Oh shit, later dude. I didn't realize you had company."
Will: "That was my intention. Bye."
Laura: "Was that Alicia?"
Will: "Yeah. You can tell by this song that's playing where the person says my love is unrequited like a million billion times."
Laura: "Cool, let's keep making out. Just kidding, I have a boyfriend."
Will: "Wait, what?"
Laura: "Yeah, I guess I suddenly have a boyfriend. A soldier from when I was in the military."
Will: "Wait so then what are we even doing?"
Laura: "I don't know. Bye."
...She leaves, and he drinks alone, and Alicia drinks alone, and the song just keeps going on and on and on like the "It's A Small World" ride, only instead of it being a particularly small world, it is a world where the person's love is majorly unrequited.

I am really looking forward to "Sex Dolls & Videotape," in which Anonymous puts a rape trial on blast. Just the thought of the privacy and technology and legality and outrage and public/private and everything about that has got me all a-twitter (and a-facebooker, all kinds of a-social networker really). And, of course, this show usually earns its sexual assault stories pretty flawlessly, and watching them thread that needle is, while harrowing, usually also pretty inspiring. Plus Kalinda finally notices that something -- or maybe like everything, basically -- about Robyn is kind of weird. Will she get out her bat? I doubt it, but even if she did probably Robyn would blast out some jujitsu or witchcraft or turn back time or something, so I think it'll turn out okay. See you then, when the final three begins.
