Lindsay, Janet and Rebecca are sitting at the bar in the kitchen, talking about pregnancy. This seems like an awfully intimate topic to discuss with people you've just met. Janet says she doesn't know what she'd do if she got pregnant. Lindsay says it scares her because she'd be afraid of screwing up the kid, and she feels selfish because she has so many things she wants to do before having kids. Janet says it's more selfish to have the child when you're not prepared. David is across the room and totally eavesdropping on this conversation. He jumps in and says it boils down to "taking responsibility for your own actions" and reports that his mom was sixteen when she had him. He reminds me of Julie on Felicity, taking his own situation and applying it to the world at large. David says you can have a child and a career, and they shouldn't act like children are "a hindrance." Lindsay invites him actually to join them at the bar instead of yelling across the room, saying that he's a "big boy" and he can handle it. David comes over and says he want to get to know them. He asks Lindsay if she is a "drama freak." Lindsay admits that she is "when she wants to be" but that she does it "more as a joke" and she "doesn't cry very often." She asks David if he cries, and when was the last time he cried. David says dramatically that he cried last night, but will only reveal that it was "about something." Lindsay asks if it was about a girl, and David says he doesn't want to tell them. He intones, "When I let you know things, I'll let you know them." What is he, Yogi Berra? What kind of statement is that? He continues, "I do it nicely, and when I do let them out, you're like 'Wow, thank you for telling me that.'" David loves himself. A lot. Who thinks that people will actually thank them for talking about themselves? David says he isn't going to "show [his] aces the first time." Then we get the ninth Space Needle sighting of the season.
