Shoshanna hates everything and everyone in life right now, and Jessa knew she would get grumpy now that she is no longer a virgin. Shoshanna snarls at her and says she is moody because she got no sleep as Ray only wants to watch old episodes of “Ally McBeal” now. Sometimes I swear this show just exists to call out the touchstones of the Millennial girls’ cultural development- as I highly doubt there is a straight man in all of North America that would spend any time watching old episodes of Calista Flockhart making weird scrunchy faces. Not that it matters, though, as these two cultural references and a grand total of 45 seconds of screen time are all Jessa and Shoshanna get this week.
Hannah informs the gang of her plans to procure cocaine and then write an article about it. She figures Jessa will know somewhere to get it, because we all have those friends like Jessa, who even if they aren’t on cocaine will at least know someone who can get you coke. Marnie suggests Hannah hit up Laird, the weird guy who lives at the ground floor of Hannah’s building, as he is a junky. Hannah assumed he was a leper, and wants to know how Marnie knew he was an addict. Marnie says she talked to him at the mailboxes one day and confirmed his junkie status. Shoshanna confirms for Hannah that all the junkies in her building do indeed hang out at the mailboxes.
Now that I’ve had sex with one people, I’m worldly and I know where junkies hang out
Marnie is off to work at her new gig as a hostess, the job that induced a scoff from Hannah on the last episode. She plays along as an older gentleman pulls her over to his table and says his friends are all being bores as they just want to talk about work. He asks Marnie to bring him a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, to really get this party started. I don’t know about you but when I think about getting crazy, Sauvignon Blanc is my first choice. Soooo many of my stories are littered with lines like ‘so I was hammered on SB’ or ‘remember that time we drank an entire bottle of Pinot Grigio and ended up in a dumpster in Little Tokyo’. Marnie obliges but never brings the gentleman his wine.
As she turned away from his table, she sees Booth Jonathan, played by Jorma Taccone of the Lonely Island, in the club, and spins around, hoping he didn’t see her. It is too late as he calls out for her and approaches her. Booth informs her that it’s pathetic that she is working there, as she explains that all the good curatorial positions were already taken and she just needed a job. He makes some off hand comment about how he loves twenty-somethings who gives up on their dream as soon as they are forced to struggle. Easier said than done, Lonely Island.
