What a Night

I like how Margo won't even spare a complete sentence on Tommie. Too early in the morning. In fact, I bet this scene started with a full five to ten minutes of silence, Tommie anxiously waiting for Margo to engage her in conversation, Margo staring deep into the refrigerator, possibly hungover, until Tommie finally breaks the ice with "Wow, what a night I had, Margo!"

Tommie's career is advancing fast... maybe too fast! Next week, Tommie will have to deliver a baby all by herself... and then perform a tiny little tracheotomy on it! When the procedure goes against the parents' wishes, will a tiny little lawsuit be involved? Because Tommie will be... a tiny bit liable.

Why would Margo ask if Tommie had a big date? When was the last time Tommie had a date?

Even if Tommie's storyline turned into a plot about how nurses should quit complaining about their jobs being hard because she can learn all the skills in a week AND still keep up her recording career and the world keeps lecturing Nina because she's a woman who is pregnant and isn't giving up her entire life to be a baby incubator, this plot still wouldn't be remotely the most offensive thing in Apartment 3-G these days.

That would be Tommy's hair.

Oh, what a night. Late December back in '63. What a very special time for me, 'Cause I remember what a night.

Oh, what a night. You know, I didn't even know her name, But I was never gonna be the same. What a lady. What a night.

Oh, I. I got a funny feeling when she walked In the room and I, As I recall it ended much too soon.

Oh, what a night, Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me. She was everything I dreamed she'd be. Sweet surrender, what a night!

I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder Spinnin' my head around and taking my body under. Oh, what a night!

Oh, I. I got a funny feeling when she walked In the room and I, As I recall it ended much too soon.

Oh, what a night. Why'd it take so long to see the light? Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right. What a lady, what a night!

Guess who said...

Tracheotomy only acceptable with a feather from Cloud Dancing's hair.

A tracheotomy with an Indian feather? That would be my greatest challenge of all!

Oh Ken, that is just Margo's constructive sadism.
