Failed Sympathy Elicitations (or Suck It, John McBain)
Good grief, McBain. I am so sorry your freaking kid has been given an astronomical irrevocable trust fund by his grandfather. What does he mean, "We're not too sure about the whole trust fund thing?" Who's this "we?" I don't remember Natalie complaining about it, and if it's irrevocable it's clearly not conditional. What a freaking douchebag. Here's how he reacted to his son being financially set for life:
And is he going to mention to Natalie that he's helping Bo try to send her father to prison for murder?
And Ford. I am so sorry you lost the job you were rightfully fired from and do not deserve.
It is shocking! The poor dear! How can so many unjust things happen to this sweet fellow? On the bright side, it did give us Ford threatening Clint:
Ooooh, scary! Clint agrees:
Nice! Clint just laughed in Ford's face, as well he should.
Hey James? My deepest apologies for losing your completely unearned free ride to college.
I know that on television there's no such thing student loans, but seriously, get over it, dude! He showed up not long ago without even having finished high school. So buckle down and earn it like the rest of the world has to, jackass.
I can't even feel bad for Joey for being disinherited considering he's such a dipshit. And he did make the good point that his mother didn't disown him, so he's still an heir.
Now I certainly did not feel sorry for Natalie because Roxy named her after a dog she loved! Because I thought that was the sweetest thing I've ever heard. I can think of no greater honor, in fact. If the apocalypse ever happens and I have myself a girl child to name, I think I'm all set now! (It's also just occurred to me that this wouldn't be the first named-after-a-dog scenario in my family. I think I love my family twice as much as I did an hour ago.) Loved the Roxy/Natalie bonding scene and the fact that Roxy went all nuts buying a million things for her new grandson:
Aww. (Speaking of Roxy, I guess I have to go see My Big Gay Italian Wedding now.)
Basically if I'm not mistaken, we were asked to feel sympathy today for Ford, James, Joey, and John. Let me reach down deep inside and see if I can muster any up for these folks. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. And... nope. None.
Vimal has "a dagger over [his] head!" This Vimal/Rama business continues to smell a bit Shakespearean, even in syntax! Also, Rama knows Aubrey:
I'm already loving Lady Rama Macbeth, but this just made Aubrey 0.5% more interesting. Which makes her a total of 0.5% interesting.
And most importantly, Grandma Viki is so effin' cute.
Li'l Asa! One of two.
