Girl meets a doctor, falls head over heels in love…it’s your classic love story.
That would be the case, if this was some Katherine Heigl movie where she’s the stereotypical rom-com klutz or ugly duckling waiting to transform into a beautiful swan. Alas, this is Lena Dunham’s “Girls” and its real and its ugly, and sometimes its really ugly.
My new boyfriend is a lot of Fun. Okay, he’s actually only a third of it.
At the onset, Hannah is at work with Ray, changing the sign outside the coffee shop that he manages and she is employed. Hannah and Ray seem to have forged a real friendship at this point, instead of previous scenes where it seemed as if they only tolerated each other because they were in the same group of friends. Hannah is pretty damaged, though, so she either likes that Ray is de facto homeless and sympathizes, or she is planning to use it in one of her essays and she is just buttering him up.
A middle-aged customer approaches Hannah and Ray as they stand at the bar, and asks to speak to the manager. Ray, who is cavalier to the point of being homeless, informs the customer that he is the manager. The guy tells Ray that he is a neighbor, who lives just around the corner. Someone from the coffee shop has been putting trash in his garbage cans, and he would like it to stop. It seems like a simple request, but Ray isn’t relenting.
Don’t dump your shit in my cans, bro.
Ray becomes slightly unraveled, and informs the customer that his employees would not do that- as they have their own dumpster and he trains all of his employees personally. Even Hannah, who coyly waves hi to the customer. It appears Hannah is hiding something but she doesn’t speak up. Ray continues to be unnerved as the customer escalates his frustration. Ray tells him he can’t resolve this situation for him, so the guy storms out.
Hannah expresses to Ray that he is devoid of almost all people skills, as she doesn’t understand why he flipped out on the guy. She tells Ray this is a toxic work environment, and is leaving immediately. Ray should just be lucky that Hannah didn’t try to extort him by claiming sexual harassment like she did last season. Although, Ray has already made it clear that the only person he finds remotely attractive in their group of friends is the virgin. Ray scoffs but doesn’t seem all that surprised. Obviously he knows Hannah doesn’t have the best work ethic. She did lie to him about being sick so you could attend Jessa’s wedding, only to find out that he had been invited as well.
Ray snaps at the remaining customers to “go back to watching your videos with pandas….before I shut off the wifi”. Ray, who is powerless in nearly all aspects of his life, has this one nugget to hold over his customer’s heads. I can’t help to think if MCA was alive today, “No WiFi in Brooklyn” would make a nice remix of a hip hop classic.
