Courtney’s robot reply is that she’s stubborn in that aspect, and repeats a lot of trite dialogue that sounds like she memorized a Dawson’s Creek episode. Doc flips it back to Doug and challenges him to look out for her well being and to influence her appropriately in this Daddy/Daughter/Child Bride relationship.
The discussion stays focused on Whorteny’s inappropriate dress and how she gets lost in the attention. She even admits that she sometimes forgets she’s married! Well, of course she does, she’s 17 and this is all a game to her. That and she doesn’t take Doug seriously at all and he is just a sad vehicle to infamy for her. Because at her age, being famous and adored come sfrom being on reality TV. Right Kardashians and your sex tapes?
Doug is shocked that Courtney
tries to block out the fact that forgets that she’s married
Tiny is in SHOCK and asks Courtney how she can forget that she’s married just because other men are giving her attention? Courtney replies it’s because she’s 17.
Tiny becomes my second best friend when she says: You made a grown woman’s decision to get married, so you can’t use 17 as an excuse for everything you do.
Good job Tiny! Little Whoreteny has a whole bag of excuses for her bad behavior, and it’s all crap. Thankfully everyone else is calling her out on it.
The next scene is a really stupid sit down between Nik and Doug. I am really over their issue with each other, we all get it and feel the same way.
Doug wants an apology out of Nik, and is absorbing all this attention. He knows he’s going to get oodles of screentime out of this conversation and he’s using it as the opportunity to paint himself as the “good guy.” He starts bullshitting about how men marry younger women Courtney’s age all over the world (Yes, and it’s also why there are THOUSANDS of initatives to save these poor girls from old creepers like you, dude) and then even says they do it in France. FRANCE?! OHMYGOD, this guy. Is an idiot.
Where is this “France” you speak of? And why haven’t I been there?
Doug even asks Nik if hewould rather his daughter at 16 run off with a drug dealer or marry a “good guy” like himself. Listen, Doug. The only time 16 year olds marry old men like you is because of 1) they’re pregnant, 2) they live in backwoods Alabama or some such place, 3) they live in a third world country, 4)It’s a lifetime movie with Tori Spelling, 5) their parents are hateful people who can’t wait to get rid of their daughter.
Nik kind of half apologizes, but at the very end says to him that he will never be okay with what you do. And for some reason Doug thinks this will do.
There’s a great little part with Doug and Courtney as he is trying to tell her about his meeting with Nik and she keeps smelling a skunk and getting distracted. It really shows their age difference here (apart from you know, every other situation) He says that she communicates in a very 21st Century Way, which is code for “she’s hopped up on pills so she can’t sober up enough to leave me.”
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the most confusing argument I’ve ever listened to.
They start off with the counselor discussing how they get into an argument and Simon always interrupts her and it makes her upset. He actually starts arguing with her about how argue.
