They have an awful, awkward conversation, and Cruz gives Charlie a sandwich. There’s not a lot of open hostility in this moment, but the two of them definitely have a nice, high wall standing between them. I wonder why? Cruz can be a dick, but he can also be a good dude, and Charlie just seems so angry. I want to know why. And I want to know where his mom is. I can’t with that boat name, though. Cruz Control, my ass.
Jackie returns to the hospital, bearing a bottle of Jäger for Jules, just in time to see her readying for her release. Jules invites Jackie to hang out, and the two of them sit on some steps while Jules chugs from the bottle. She tells Jackie what an awesome nurse she is, and they’re laughing, but both are laughing through so many layers of shit that it’s just depressing.
Isn’t it hilarious how hard life can suck? Then Jules gives Jackie the Vicodin as a thank you. Good God.
On her way home, Jackie passes a dumpster, and impulsively chucks the Vicodin into it. Then she reaches what we like to call a new low, and dives head first into the thing to retrieve them. That’s when you know you have a problem: you’re crawling around in a New York City garbage bin, scrabbling after your pills. Somewhere in the middle of her forage she realizes this, and climbs out, leaving the drugs behind.
Time to reevaluate that early checkout. All told, that had to be one of my favorite episodes of this show, ever. I wasn’t bored for a second, I was dying with laughter on more than one occasion, and the awful, poignant moments were pitch perfect. I always forget how much I like Rosie Perez until I see her, and this was one of those times. Hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did. If you’re one of the readers following the recaps because you don’t have time to watch the show, I recommend this episode when you get the chance.
