Cut to Finn, watching the game on the TV in his apartment. Meadow can't believe he didn't want to go to the stadium, especially because Finn loves baseball so much. "I don't like the guy, all right?" he explains. Oh, please. Everyone loves Wide Guy. Some more than others to be sure, but everyone still loves him. "Oh, I get it," snarks Meadow. "Dr. DeTrolio can't hang with the common folk." Shut up, Meadow. That's the last straw for Finn, and he decides to try going with the truth instead: "He came on to me, all right? Either that or he wants to kill me." Oh, Finn. Everyone's always gay with you. You know what? Maybe you're gay. You ever think of that? Um...yeah. Sometimes I forget they can't hear me. Meadow can't believe what she's hearing herself, especially because Wide Guy is supposedly a happily married man. "I seriously doubt he wants to kill you," she adds. "Well, maybe he wants to fuck me and then kill me," replies Finn. Heh. And personally, I think Wide Guy would have been fine with either outcome. Hell, I think he might have even taken Finn's word that he would keep his mouth shut. Er, so to speak. But by not even showing up for the game, Finn has pretty much sealed his death warrant at this point. Unless, of course, he can think of a clever way out this situation. Let's see what happens, shall we?
Meadow interrupts their argument about Wide Guy to start a new argument about their relationship when she notices that Finn has taken his suitcase out of the closet. Er, so to speak. Again. He insists that he's never going back to the construction site, but all Meadow can worry about is the grief she's going to get from Daddy because he had to pull a lot of strings to get Finn the job in the first place. Shut up, Meadow. Here's all you need to know about the rest of this scene: They fight. And then they fight some more. And after that? They fight. They fight, they fight, they fight, they fight, they fight. He Gift Thy. The Fig Thy. Tom Has Every Yellow Flower In Gardens He's Tended. Tall Hairy Elephants Yield Fantastic Ivory Growing Huge Tusks. Yeah. In other words, they fight. Ooh! You know what else happens in this scene? They fight. Sigh. Shut up, fight. Seeing as how I'm contractually obligated to provide you with details, I'll try to be more specific. Meadow accuses Finn of using all of this as an excuse to justify not committing. Finn insists that they're still living together, and that the suitcase just represents "his process." "I was thinking out loud," he claims. "Well, not out loud, but in the action of getting out the suitcase, I was thinking." Meadow: "Thinking of leaving!" Finn: "No! Well, yes. But I'm still here, I didn't go...There was no abundant intentionality in me getting out the suitcase." Oh, man. I love the writers of this episode almost as much as I love my HD DVR. I'm actually giggling over a scene that features Meadow shouting and whining. If that doesn't deserve a fifteen-dollar Emmy, I don't know what does. Shut up, The West Wing. Meadow threatens to leave as well, reminding him that she can go visit Hunter up in Montreal any time she wants. Finn, however, is more interested in Hunter's "French roommate guy," who was hitting on Meadow the last time they all went out. "He's thinking of becoming an oral surgeon," she sobs. "You might have had a new friend if you hadn't been so obnoxious to him at the club!" Yeah, whatever. I think Finn has made plenty of new friends this week, don't you? "Can we just stop fighting?" he begs, demonstrating that he's almost as tired of this scene as I am. "You got out a suitcase!" whines Meadow, for the fifth time in as many minutes. As noted in the forums, the real surprising revelation in this episode seems to be that Meadow was apparently traumatized by some Samsonite when she was a little girl.
