Out at Yankee stadium, meanwhile, Mobby Dick (tm unknown again -- this is what happens when the episode thread has forty pages) is finally realizing that he's been stood up. The fact that he's dressed in his finest Yankee regalia would seem to indicate that Wide Guy wasn't planning any violence for the evening. Or, at the very least, that he wasn't planning anything that might cause arterial splatter. He does look quite angry when he's forced to head inside alone, though. Especially because he missed the national anthem. You know, because if there's anyone who could make Yankee pinstripes into "broad stripes," it's Wide Guy.
Back to Meadow and Finn. A clock tells us that it's 4:22 in the morning, and guess who won't shut up? Finn has moved on from discussing "abundant intentionality" to talking about the fact that this point in their lives "is a transition period, forced on [them] by external events." He doesn't know if they'll be able to stay together through graduate school and everything else, but he is happy that they still have the choice of breaking up now. "What? You'd rather not have choices?" he asks. "Thank God for choices." Man, I wish I had choices right now. Shut up, Meadow. She asks if they're going to stay together, and he says it's up to her. Then she whines some more, and he commits the ultimate sin of falling asleep right in the middle of their fight. Heh. That's one way to shut her up, I guess. "Are you asleep?" she shouts. "You were! And now you're going to lie about it like you did about the suitcase." She just can't let the luggage go, can she? Here's all you need to know about the rest of this scene: Shut up, Meadow. Shut up, Meadow. Shut. Up. Meadow. Shut shut shut. Up up up. Meadow Meadow Meadow. Shut up, Meadow. A dupe hums two. At pod we humus. Was dump he out. Seeing Her Unreasonable Tantrums Usually Perturbs Me, Especially At Deadline. Oh, Well. In other words: Shut up, Meadow. You know what? They're still fighting. And...still fighting. Anyone want to join me for a refreshing snack? Oh, all right. Fine. Meadow bursts into tears, and goes running off to lock herself in the bathroom. Finn massages his temples and tries in vain to wish himself straight to California. Then he gets up, and begs through the bathroom door for her to stop crying. Surprisingly, that actually works, and she emerges from the bathroom and joins him back on the bed. Obviously at his wit's end (which probably wasn't a very lengthy trip), Finn makes what will likely be the biggest mistake of his life by asking, "Why don't we just get married?" Uh oh. "Really?" wonders Meadow. "Why are you saying that?" Finn, of course, has the most romantic answer possible to that question: "I can't think. It's too late. It's just something I feel very strongly." Yeah. Just what every girl longs to hear.
