Jason gets all mesmerized by her once again -- she makes him feel like he's "home," he says wistfully -- and she gets all nervous about the keys again. He says he'll drive her wherever she wants to go, but he can't be without her. And, if he's not mistaken, she is close to admitting she feels the same way. Crystal doesn't disavow this exactly but does point out that the Hotshot people will come and kill him -- no one's getting out -- and he's like, "Let me tell you a little thing about Stackhouses and how we feel about armies of superpowered nutjobs/drug dealers making an assault on our houses: It does not bother us at all, no matter what you may say or think about that. And this is because we are -- proudly, eternally, without a second thought and without pause -- 100% bonkers."
Lafayette's house is also bonkers and also has a superpowered army coming for it apparently and just like the Stackhouses, Lala doesn't care. Of course, he's only being warned about the problem by his mom, so I guess he has an excuse. Jesus finally shows up and Lafayette takes all of his furniture out from blocking the door so shit can get awkward. When she sees him, Ruby Jean goes, "Jesus," and stalks off. Apparently a new nurse -- a "white bitch," if you were wondering -- left Ruby J unattended, and here she came.
So then Lafayette called Jesus because he didn't want to call the facility itself because then they'd call the cops and things would get official -- and that can't happen due to Lafayette being a drug dealer, which Jesus helpfully notes, and a hooker, which Jesus probably doesn't know yet, and wouldn't guess, because you could never guess how many jobs Lafayette is holding down. Every time you think you know all his jobs: More jobs. What's that, Ruby Jean? More crazy? With a knife in your hand this time?
"You got power, boy. You always have. That's why they're coming. I got to protect you, but I can't do it if you keep drugging me." They discuss with her about how she's got a huge knife in her hand and disinterest in going back to the hospital, for a while, until Jesus admits that he knows Lafayette is "very powerful," but that he is going to protect him. Aww! And Lafayette is once again reminded that Jesus is awesome, as he asks Ruby J to give him the knife and watch some TV. He's slick with her, and sweet, and strong, and loving. (Somebody loves this woman; this somebody has a deep capacity to love, no matter how horrible you think you are.) Ruby Jean gives in with that comfy nastiness that makes their scenes together so uncomfortably sweet: "TV's all faggots and murderers and ho's, Jesus. Where the clicker?"
