Truman walks into the Packard house to find Strangely Hairless Jonathan carrying Josie's luggage out the front door. Josie introduces him as "my assistant, Mr. Lee," and tells Harry that she is "going away." He wants her to stay. She sold the mill. "It's over. I'm going home." For the love of all things holy, Truman, do NOT try and stop her again. She cries and apologizes, and Jonathan enters for a moment but Truman sends him back out. She makes for the door and Harry cries out a futile "I love you." End. END!!!
Dude, if "gratuitous close-ups on inanimate objects" were going to be my legacy, I'd rather just die penniless and in obscurity, thanks very much. This time, a put-on-your-3D-glasses cigar practically bursts through the picture tube and into my living room, establishing us, well, nowhere (added to FloralCam, HearingAidCam and BuckleCam from earlier in the episode) before cutting to Ben and Ka -- I mean, "Tojamura" finishing dinner in the Great Northern dining room. Tojamura gruffs, "You have my cashier's check for five million. I have nothing. Why?" Ben retorts that he's trying to be careful in this small community, to learn as much as possible about his investors. Tojamura tells Ben that he's wasting their time. Ben is trying to be careful in the wake of the fire. "I know all about fire," Tojamura harps. "My family was at Nagasaki." Ben looks downcast and apologizes. And then, from just about out of nowhere, the cocktail music kicks up into the introduction of a grand musical number, it seems, as the almost-forgotten "Leland & Psychosis: Together Again for the Very First Time" Tour '90 kicks up in earnest once more as the white-haired ingénue wows the crowd with my personal favorite of Leland's, "Getting to Know You." As Ben rises to end this and Tojamura steps aside to the bar, Leland is just getting to the "you are precisely my cup of tea" section, and he steps off the small stage and up to a couple at a nearby table: "And where might you folks be from, sir?" The man interactively responds that they are from Twin Peaks, and Leland goes right with it, asking, "How 'bout those Steeplejacks, huh?" Ben walks on stage and attempts to wrestle Leland off, but Leland makes him a part of the act and the two dance more closely than they did previously and sing the end of the song together. Freakin' hilarious. Huge applause. Leland tells them, "Great Northern audiences are the greatest audiences in the world." The crowd offers a big campy "Awwww." Ben finally gains control of the microphone and quietly tells Leland, "Temporary insanity. Hopefully some of these people will be on your jury. You'll be home free." Hey, Ben got in on the old cabaret routine himself. Good night! Good night, folks! I'll be here all week! Be good to your waitresses! Over at the bar, a happily resurgent Pete Martell turns to an unnecessarily mysterious (or, as the case may well be in this particular situation, not) Tojamura and asks if he likes musicals. He says no. "Not even Fiddler on the Roof? It made me weep like a little baby." Stony silence, followed by "I find adherence to fantasy troubling and unreasonable." Get it? GET IT? Of course you get it.
