Two times the Happy Endings, (last week’s) New Girl, this week’s Don’t Trust the B—-, and 2 times the Private Practice!
Happy Endings 12/11/12
Max realizes how much he needs Penny’s break-up stories to make him feel better about his own life. Jane tries to figure out a way to make her dad laugh, and recruits Max to help her come up with a joke to tell at his anniversary party celebrating 20 years of his business.
Alex hasn’t told her parents she and Dave are back together, and tells him he doesn’t have to come to the party in an effort to continue avoiding telling them.
Unfortunately, Penny accidentally sabotages her happy relationship with Pete, making Max temporarily happy, but then he tracks Pete down to fix it because he realizes how much Penny actually likes him.
Jane tells her joke to Brad, and while he doesn’t get it, when she leaves him alone with her dad, he accidentally tells her dad the joke because he can’t think of anything else to say.
Jane, out of options, can only think of one thing to make her dad laugh. She dresses up like Gallagher and prepares to smash a watermelon. She misses, hits the table, and the mallet bounces back and hits her in the forehead. She did get the laugh out of her dad, so despite the gigantic bump on her head, she is glad.
Jane’s birthday is on Christmas, so the rest of the gang tries to avoid all things Christmasy to focus only on her birthday. Brad misses hip-hop Santa. Max misses egg nog.
But Jane actually gets to enjoy her birthday for once without all the other details of the holiday intruding in on the experience. For the most part anyway.
Private Practice “I’m Fine”
Sheldon has cancer. His ex-wife decides to stop visiting him after he tells her. While in treatment, he meets Miranda (Numb3rs alum Diane Farr!) and she’s the only person he can talk to about the cancer. He tells his shrink (Kathy Baker), but it’s not the same.
Sheldon’s patient, Nick, returns to therapy, the pedophile he essentially accused of taking the little girl from the hospital a few weeks ago, and he’s happy–he met a woman. However, not having seen her, neither we nor Sheldon knows if it’s an age appropriate woman he’s seeing, or a little girl he’s fixated on.
While Sheldon gets more and more cynical, everything around him seems to make him even more upset and depressed about the world. He still thinks Nick may have taken the little girl, but he can’t do anything unless he confesses.
Sheldon pushes him just far enough and then has him committed so that he can send the cops into his home after the little girl who is still alive, exactly where Sheldon thought she’d be.
Nice to see a resolution on that one. But it’s too bad Sheldon is sick. I think he’ll make it. His new friend Miranda won’t be so lucky.
Charlotte is stuck in the hospital in bed as she waits until she’s ready to give birth to her other two daughters. She’s uncomfortable, unhappy, and cantankerous, trying to run the hospital from her room, lashing out at anyone simply because she has no way to deal with the frustration, boredom, and fear of being in that bed, waiting to give birth, waiting for her other child in the NICU to start improving.
It’s pretty sad seeing the baby so fragile and barely improving after so long in the NICU, but it’s amazing to see Charlotte get through it all. She really is one of the best characters on the show. She’s so strong, even if she’s a hard case sometimes.
Jess wants a bathtub at the loft, but the guys vote her down. Except Winston secretly wants one too. They try to install one on the roof, it falls and breaks through the ceiling of Schmidt’s room, ruining his suits, and they decide to “rob” the place to make it look like meth addicts tore the place apart.
Schmidt tries to win Cece over again, but when his boss forces him to stay and try the Double V vodka they’re trying to promote, he blows it.
As much as I like Carla Gugino, I didn’t think she’d hang around so long. While I’m still rooting for the Jess/Nick pairing at some point in this show, I do like the Nick/Angie combo. Mostly because I like Olivia Munn. It’ll be interesting to see whether that works out with all of Nick’s insecurities and self-sabotage tactics.
