I wondered that, myself. I heard where they did they segue, and it didn’t quite sound like her. On the other hand, you can do wonders in the studio.
I liked the rant that included ‘George-Fucking-Bush getting re-elected’. They were preaching to the choir-sum-audience, of course; but I laughed.
Nate. Nate, Nate, Nate! What is wrong with you? You’re a good guy. You’re an intelligent guy. Drop the drama, and stop being a jerk.
Claire is getting a taste of life in the real world. I worked in a cube farm for a long time. I think they overdid it. But I can relate to Claire. After I destroyed my knees and realised I wouldn’t fly for a living, I turned to my second love: filmmaking. My friends and I made short films on super-8. I got a job at K-Mart that was somewhat flexible and allowed us to have fun with film. Then I got a job at the Air Force base. This was cool, since I love flying machines. I still found time to play in films. But then I got a job with another contractor in L.A. I went for the steady income (which was higher than at the base) and ended up spending my time in cube farms instead of making films. I can see the same thing happening to Claire. (I’m at a juncture now where I have to make a choice between finding another job, or go into partnership in a video studio. Guess what decision I’ve made. )
Rico committed an indescretion. He tried to atone, but Vanessa wouldn’t accept it. Having been dumped from every relationship I’ve been in, I sympathise with Rico and think Vanessa is being unreasonable. But having been cheated on, I know how she feels. Rico has pulled some sleazy stunts trying to get her back, but I feel she is the one who is being more unreasonable.
I feel bad for George. Yes, he should have been upfront about his episodes; but I think it may be more denial than concealment. Good for him for seeing the Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin and making a clean break.
