Dad sets Larissa straight and tells her Carrie is determined to be a lawyer and Larissa distracted her from that. Larissa corrects Dad- he clearly doesn’t know his own daughter if he thinks she wants to be a lawyer. Dad grumbled that Carrie used to have goals- not pipe dreams. Larissa says “Just because they aren’t your dreams doesn’t make them stupid.” Furthermore, Carrie is a good writer and he has to let her grow up- what if writing is her calling- does Dad really want to stand in the way of that?
Ugh, and now for the dumbest thing EVER, Mouse confronts West about him being #1, and she wants her #1 spot back.
May the best Nerd win
So they decide to have a Rubik’s Cube-off at the diner. Cut to the diner, with Mouse and this horrible Rocky-themed Montage of her working out- prepping for the Rubik’s Cube-off. Even the extras in the diner are humiliated for her.
May the biggest nerd win…
Finally, West shows up and Mouse beats him- she gloats that this was her ride back to the top! West is like- “I gotta go pick up my little borther- my mom is at work. She has had to work really hard to raise us and give us the very best since my Dad left.” West confirms he is black, athletic and a genius with a laundry list of extra-curricular activities. He is the College Admissions Unicorn. And Mouse isn’t. She’s just like every other two-parent, non-athlete, Asian Math Nerd. She is a dime a dozen. And she should wave goodbye to Harvard and Princeton, cuz they are HIS. Ha. I love a good burn.
Back to Beardsville, Super Vixen Donna LaDonna and Walt come back from shopping. Walt is modeling his new cashmere sweater. Donna suggest he talk of his sweater and the get naked. Walt tells her he would prefer to wait until they get to know each other better. Donna, actually, likes the idea.
At The Chelsea Hotel, Carrie goes about looking for The Dorrit- calling out her name.
She spies The Dorrit… with Sebastian. He found her first. Sebastian says “I hope you don’t mind, I decided to do it my way.” Carrie wants to know why she is even interested in Sid & Nancy. The Dorrit says they were two artists who lived passionately- they lived every day like it was their last. Carrie says that one day it WAS their last- particularly in Nancy’s case. The Dorrit asks Carrie why she is always so afraid? Ever since Mom died, The Dorrit has decided to LIVE LARGE, because even if you are good, it could all go wrong. Carrie’s problem is, she is always thinking, same with Dorrit, they got that from MOM- and it’s exhausting. Btws, The Dorrit thinks Sebastian is way cooler than she expected…for a pretty boy.
