“The L Word” Recaps: Episode 5.2 “Look Out, Here They Come!”

The scene changes back to that retina-rupturing abomination:

Here’s what my Max-computing-era brain is doing:

Not ready reading drive Bizarro

Abort, Retry, Fail?

Jenny comes to the rescue:

Jenny: OK, I like the idea of Bev as the cheater. I don’t see her with Shaun. What about Bev and Helen?
Aaron: Now, that’s hot. I like that.

Meeeeee tooooooo. I’ve been fantasizing about that for a while now! (But, uh, Helen? Gosh, what a creative name for that character, Ms. Schecter.)

But the Bev-Helen thing doesn’t quite work out — they sort of scuffle rather than sizzle. They’re like fighting kangaroos.

Fighting kangaroos in black bras, that is. That makes a pretty big difference.

But Tina’s not impressed:

Tina: [chuckling/choking] That would never happen. They’re too much alike.
Jenny: [strained] OK, but they’re not having a relationship, Tina. They’re just f—ing.
Tina: Well, I don’t buy it.
Jenny: Well, nobody cares what you buy, OK?

As long as we’re buying things, can I place an order for the outtakes of that scene? I’m expecting these two to have a kangaroo fight any minute now.
