"We are some dirty slut pigs." -Gaby (yes, they fucked).

I just started watching this show and I like it but I was annoyed with the daughters in this episode. I was annoyed by Alice’s disgust with her dad hooking up with Gaby but whatever, Alice is 17 and her world has already been turned upside down and shaken like a snow globe.

I was more annoyed with Meg. I understand their relationship is fraught but she didn’t invite Paul to move in. She basically told him to and it wasn’t reasonable for her to react the way she did.

Random observation I feel weird about making - seeing Gaby in her underwear made me think that was pretty underwear and I wonder if I could afford it because like me, she has a tummy and it was nice to see a person on screen who is beautiful and not size 0000.

Oh also I thought this was Harrison Ford’s best episode. When arguing with Meg, it looked like he was really struggling to be appreciative for her gesture while shutting it down.

This one really hit me -- I spent New Year's sitting with my mom and dad trying to figure out basically how much of their 80s they'll get to spend living unassisted. We settled on "a little more", but one of the first things I figured out was that the most important part was letting them have agency in the decision. As soon as Meg just made that decision, I knew it was going to blow up, and it should have. She overstepped. Way too far.
