Fisher & Diaz handles the funeral arrangements for a man who died in a car crash in 1975, but whose vehicle and remains were only recently discovered in a canyon. Claire takes a job as Olivier's assistant. Rico comes up with a plan to hire an intern whose only compensation will be free living quarters, which means Ruth must adjust to sharing her home with a stranger. Lisa and Nate conflict over Nate's spending and Lisa's desire to be a SAHM, and Brenda drops by to speak to Nate. David realizes he has history with a fellow chorus member, and Keith realizes he needs to find a new job that he doesn't hate.

I wince for Diane Jaffe Buckner and for Thomas Jaffe, spending all those years believing they'd been abandoned, and for Will, dying so young and tragically and then being remembered so unjustly.

Olivier's a case of arrested development and he really shouldn't be teaching. The way he tries to destroy the friendship between Claire and Russell is so disgusting.

Arthur is hilariously weird and in a completely unique way. That's... an accomplishment.

Ruth's household schedule and rules are unbelievably and exasperatingly petty and controlling. You know she'd love to make everyone in the house live according to the same rules, but her kids would never put up with it.

More unilateral "we're doing things my way" attitude from Lisa. I wish Nate would have a talk with her about that, but then a show down is coming.

"Libraries are depressing." Oh, fuck off, Nate.

I've never heard anyone whose relationship wasn't seriously fucked up and doomed refer to their romantic partnership as a trap.

Brenda being Brenda, she manages to make her "step nine" effort to make amends with Nate inappropriate and problematic for Nate, especially given that Lisa is seriously threatened by Brenda, and not at all without reason.

Now that David is out of the closet and more connected to the gay community, I have to wonder how many more awkward encounters with past hookups are in his future.

Is Keith seeking any treatment for his PTSD? Because he sure as hell ought to be.

"This [album] is so great for, like, taking diet pills and cleaning your bathroom.”

“Yeah, you seem a little home-schooled.”
