When we return, Teresa tells us that today she's meeting with Janice. She hopes that Janice will listen to her points of view, because she would really like to continue working there. Teresa has what experts like to call "false hope." She walks into Janice's office, and Janice says, "Oh, my God," and adds that she didn't know Teresa was coming. Janice gives her a hug and then says, "I'm mad at you." Janice has dead-eyes, which makes me think that she is in some way chemically altered. This does not bode well for Teresa. Teresa asks why Janice is mad, and Janice says because she never showed up for the appointment with Dr. Frank. Teresa just says, "Oh yes. I know." Yeah, she's going to have to do a little better than that. Janice asks for some explanation, and Teresa kind of avoids looking at her. Teresa sits down and says that she's been thinking about quitting. She goes on to say that when Janice first met her, she said that she would help Teresa out with her housing situation. Janice did, in fact, say this. Teresa adds that if she didn't think she was going to get any help in L.A., she would have gone back to Florida, where she does have housing. The way that she says "housing" makes me find her really suspicious. I think Janice finds her suspicious, too, because she says that it's not her responsibility to find Teresa "further housing" or to become her mother. Janice adds that she's not getting Teresa's attitude. Teresa then actually says, "Okay, now, continuing on." Oh man, is she in for it.
Janice says that Teresa can have the floor, but when she doesn't show up for a valuable consultation without even the courtesy of a call, she doesn't have a cardboard box to stand on. Teresa says that she freaked out about getting the surgery, and adds that she didn't know if she was getting the surgery that day or if it was just a consultation because Janice didn't make that clear. Earlier in the episode Janice did, in fact, say that it was a consultation, so shut up Teresa. This is totally the battle of the crackhead bitches. Janice says that she's not going to start cutting things off of Teresa's face; she's only trying to help her. Teresa didn't have the courtesy to call, and her manners suck. Teresa says that she should have showed up, but can't do anything about it now. Janice says, which is true, that Teresa could have come in without an attitude. Teresa starts to talk back, and Janice finally says, "I'm sensing a fucking bitch right now." Teresa says, "You know, that's very funny that you would say that because..." and Janice answers, "I am a bitch. But I can sense a fellow bitch. And I'm not liking it. You've gotta go." Dude, the first rule of interacting with Janice is that you never remind her that she's a bitch, because this brings on her full bitch powers. Janice tells Teresa to get out and not come back. Teresa says that she won't come back. Janice says, "Good," and shakes her head. Janice loves to have the last word.
