And back at the firehouse once more, the Squiggly Hip Font of Character Introduction alerts us to the fact that Genesis is on the phone with a friend from down South named "Bernerd." She reads him a diary entry she wrote concerning the state of her relationship with Adam that sounds like she's taped together fortune cookies from every Chicken and Pathos combination plate she's ever ordered or like she's reading the lead sheet to "Somewhere Out There" with the words in a slightly different order. Either way, here's a sample: "I just wish for once I had somebody to hold at night...Someone to be with for the rest of my life. Someone who looks at the stars and sees the same sparkle I do." She thinks she's fallen in love with Adam, and claims she wants to marry him just so she knows she'll have someone to be with to call her own. Hmmm. Has Adam been consulted on this matter just yet, I wonder? He might have a different outlook on it all. Because then they'd have to arrange to travel all the way to Hawaii, where gay marriages are actually...oh, wait a sec. That won't happen because it's not a gay marriage and SHE'S A GIRL. And he's not.
Jason doesn't even both opening his mouth, because he's just submitted his resume to the Bumin-Murray Human Resources Department and doesn't want his pesky personality to have any marked effect on what I hear turned out to be a rather long and successful employment stint with the company. It. Figures. Kameelah has taken Jason and Elka to something called a "step show," a process she realizes is "hard to explain" so she wants them to see it. Apparently it has something to do with fraternities and dancing. Douglas shows up at a gymnasium of some kind with his daughter, who is decked out in the typical asbestos-lined arctic toddler gear necessary for the Boston winter, but from what we can see of her she is absolutely adorable. Maybe she would make a good replacement for The Cat of Vulnerability, who doesn't seem to be doing her job of making anyone feel a whole lot better about anything this week. Including me. And so the step show ends (we literally see less than one second of it), and we learn that Douglas' ex-girlfriend is there so Kameelah can't meet the daughter. And so she's bummed.
