In honour of the best line of the night when Kelly refers to Carla and Rosie as ‘Dr.Evil and Mini Me’.
Haley’s Pre-Opt Mini Me
Okay, you have to bear with me a bit because I watched the episodes online and watched them in reverse order so if I get something bass-ackwards, you’ll know why.
Roy is pissed, pissed, pissed, pissed but after a lot of conjoling, Haley finally gets him to sit down and talk to her in a scene with some really beautiful writing. The problem is, that she lied to him and he feels betrayed because in his mind their relationship was built on honesty and the only place where he could be himself and now that is taken away from him. He says that she was the one person he could be absolutely honest, and that the marriage was “my sancutary, the one place where I didn’t have to be worldly and now I find that even there I was naive.” Haley tells him that their relationship is more than that, that it’s ‘going up the stairs each night, watching the headlines with their horlicks and fighting over the quilts’. (Glacia started to hyperventilate a bit at this point.).
Anyway, Haley tells Roy that she would never choose Christian over him and she won’t see him if it upsets Roy. Roy tells her that he understands that she needs to see him and he’ll support her, on one condition, that she tells Christian the truth the next time she sees him.
Haley agrees and marches right over to the record store to introduce herself to him as…….Auntie Haley, Harold’s sister. Do’uh! Anyway, she invites him over the next day to talk about Harold. When she returns to the cafe Roy asks her how Christian took ‘the news’ and is once again upset when she tells him she didn’t tell C.
They have a big row and while Roy gets into the specifics of moral and ethical behaviour, she tells him that she’s only human and she lied because she was afraid he’d reject her. Roy asks if in being human is she being humane and taking his feelings into consideration.
The next day C arrives and Roy grumbles when they are introduced. They go upstairs where Haley brings him Jaffa cakes and exchange Harold photos (I’d be curious if those pics were younger pics of hte actor playing C.). C wants to know about Harold and has some angry feelings about the man who abandoned him and his mother. Haley assures C. that Harold didn’t know about him and that if he did, he would have been invovled in his life. Then C. wonders if Roy is his father, thus the chilly reception. Haley swears on a stack of bibles that he isn’t.
When he leaves C. indicates that while it was nice to meet Haley, there’s no real reason why they should meet up again. Haley tells him that she would like to meet again because ‘you never know’.
Happy Birthday Sean
Sept 13th and it’s Mr. Tully’s 31st birthday and as a special pressie he gets a date with Marcus, scaonaogafarver at large. They go Leanne’s and get to know each other and later Sean brings him around to the pub to meet his mates. Marcus says his hellos and then tells Sean he had a great time but he’s got to go. Sean gives off that ‘eau de l’insecurity et desperation’ smell again at this news.
It doesn’t make matters any better when the girls give him a hard time and Kelly even says that she thinks Marcus is out of his league. But ‘ha ha’ on them, because shortly after Marcus texts Sean.
