trust me: i'll be back tomorrow


I'm swimming in oatmeal with work and condo association stuff on top of recovering from the plague of flu/flu-like symptoms running around our office. Yep, its been one of those weeks.

I caught this week's episode but I was barely holding it together at that point. So I'll be re-watching tomorrow.

In the mean time, feel free to chat about this week's episode, "Damage Control". I'll join you later.

One thing I did like... the joke about Canada. Because both Tom and Eric are from Canada. Hee!

I did catch that, Gatzy! That was funny. I also liked that when Conner pitched his idea to Mason, that it was Mason coming home to Mason's wife and Conner making out. :-)

Conner really behaved as if Mason had cheated on him, don't you guys think? I mean, I recognize it appeared as if it could've been somewhat about his suspicion that Mason and Sarah were having an affair, but ... really, Conner? Would Sarah have been so cavalier about that if it were an ongoing thing?

Plus, they've established that Conner is rather insecure in his relationship with Mason, and that he jumps to incorrect conclusions in such situations.

I liked the end scene between the two guys, and how both of them have varying definitions of what's important to share.

They're both wrong; even given that they're partners, Mason's salary doesn't seem like any of Conner's business, and vice versa. Nor does the fact that Mason and Sarah made out a bit eight years ago seem to have any effect on the present Mason/Sarah work relationship, or the Mason/Conner work relationship.

Should Mason have been making out with someone other than his wife? No, of course not. But Conner's just using that as an excuse to paper over his own jealousy -- over Mason picking Sarah's idea over his -- IMO. What do you guys think?

The Canada joke was hilarious. :-)

And I'm continuing to love the show. Monica Potter is just amazing! She is incredibly funny and talented. I absolutely loved her scene with the head of the Dove campaign. Her face did some amazing things in that scene. *g*

Yeah, Tom, I agree with what you said.

First, I should say, that Conner is just...delectable and gorgeous. gatz, back me up here...the clothes alone send me over the edge. And then the face, the comic timing, just guh...

HOWEVER, Mr. Adorable, I sorta hate you this week. I feel another Really? with Seth and Amy coming on. You bring it out in me. 1) You give Mason shit about making more money than you. FOR BEING YOUR BOSS. Yeah, what a dick move that is. 2) Then when you find out that he's NOT making more money than you. For being your boss. But you give him shit about HAVING more money than you. See, now the only way I figure a guy with a stay-at-home wife, a mortgage and a child has more money than someone else in the same city with the same salary is if he didn't SPEND IT ALL on crap. Say bye bye to the moral high ground. 3) Then, when Mason finds out that you are making more than HE is you don't really see the problem with all the aforementioned shit-giving. Really.

In between 2) and 3), and this is my favorite part, you let your buddy, who you now know makes LESS than you and is so stressed about money that he hasn't even told his wife...you let him LEND YOU MONEY to save you from a spending-spree-induced termination. Wow.

Then (and I realize that I'm restating your point, Tom) you actually think that Mason is having an affair with Sarah! Because NO YOU DON'T. You don't think that. But you let Mason think that you think that. That's just you pulling the fire alarm and Mason's a nice enough guy to feel so guilty about the kissing* that it actually works.

* none of your damn business

Mason explained it to you, jerk. Sarah is highly talented, she's all alone and hating her job, you want to KEEP her and she just needs someone to work with. And she deserves someone to work with. And hers was the BEST CAMPAIGN. By the way.

You are a BIG gorgeous BABY! Grow up.

I'm going to need some character-bolstering for Conner next week. I really want to like him more than I do right now.
