    Okay, so when they cut to the scene where the composer and the chorus boy are back at his apartment, we come in at the middle of a conversation that goes like this:

    "Into the Woods"
    "For me, it's The Frogs. I'm just weird."

    Anybody know (without googling) what was the unaired line that was almost certainly spoken right before we joined the scene in progress?

    It was:
    "What's your favorite Sondheim show?"


    I love that they just left that there without explaining it.

    I think they've really hit their stride... all of a sudden, the hour was over, and I wanted more story. I wasn't pleased with the choice of Uma Thurman last week, but this week I was more than impressed. From her totally crappy singing at the beginning, to her down-three-octaves "hit" number, to her general acting through the rest of it: wow... perfect. I believed her in that role.

    It's sort of odd that there was all of the primadonna demands, but then at the evening meeting she was all business and seemingly down to earth. Kind of confused me.

    Probably what I liked the most was that there was just enough of each character. A little Julia/Frank/Leo, a little clingy Tom, a little Karen/Ivy, a little Karen/Dev/BFF, and the main Rebecca story sprinkled among it.

    I also liked that Rebecca is causing change in Bombshell, so there are new songs being written and sung. I wondered how they would sing something new every week... there aren't THAT many songs in a musical!

    The montage of scenes during the "only three weeks left before the season finale" was impressive.

    I'm glad Ellis got his...

    ...though who in reality would really answer a phone and then start talking like that without getting at least a "hello" from their caller...

    I still can't get past Anjelica Houston. She's. just. gross. No way that bartender dude is interested in her for just a relationship, the casting people could not have missed it by that much.

    I'm waiting for the arc that exposes Eileen is a dude.

    I have liked Angelica in a lot of things. Grifters is one of my favorite movies and I tried to convince myself to seeing my way to being attracted to her in some way but found it wholly impossible.

    The relationship is just too odd a mismatch to make sense. When she is with her ex husband it makes sense, in this case it does not

    As someone mentioned if it was a sugar momma angle you could see it but that seems ruled out.

    Maybe it is some revenge fantasy based on a wrong she did to someone in his family and he is messing with her.

    Anjelica Houston has earned her stripes but one of the problems is that we age and we cannot control or prevent it. Yes, I find her not attractive now, but I remind myself of who she is and I pretend she is more attractive than she is.

    I don't really have a problem with her. Like her acting? Yes. Am I personally attracted to her? No. Do I think she's gross? No. Could I see her being hit on by a bartender like that? Hell yes... Eileen may need money but she still has charisma and power.

    I saw her on a recent Regis and Kelly (yes, I know, but that's what it will always be to me) where she was talking about the show and the drinks to her ex's face, etc. She was SO not Eileen. She was always smiling, seemed down to earth, and acted a lot younger than she is. It was obvious that this was the real Anjelica, and I was glad to see it. :)

    Gotta say, tho... I hate that straight-down dark hair doo. Yuk... doesn't do anything for her.

    Also, can they please replace Debra Messing's kid? He can't act out of a wet paper bag.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one that doesn't find Angelica Houston attractive. EEK!

    Now we know why, it covers that crater in her skull.
