"In Which Cooper Finds a Port in His Storm" Season 1, Episode 8

Ick. Trunk. A word I never thought would make me shudder now makes me want to throw all my high heels in the garbage. This ruins my whole grocery shopping experience. The phrase "honey, will you grab the stuff out of the trunk" doesn't sound so innocent anymore. Ick. At first, I was with Cooper and thought maybe Carl just had a rather large... you know! But then I saw that x-ray. Yowza. Oddly, I kept wondering why he would put that end in the bad place. Wouldn't you want to start with something smaller? Like the heel? I guess he's a pro,he has been seeing Violet for a year now. Poor Addison, she just wants a normal guy. Another thing Addison wants is a baby, so I think Safe Surrender may not be such a good idea for her. All those babies with no one to care for them - of course she would get attached. It was very sweet how she bonded with Bat Girl/Melanie but I was glad the birth mother (am I wrong or was that Danielle Van de Kamp on Desperate Housewives?) came back for her. No wonder she needed a shoulder to cry on. Good thing Naomi was at Sam's. I guess Addison knows their secret now. I loved how Cooper and Charlotte were each other's internet date. I'm going to ignore my over-analytical side who is screaming about how the odds of that happening are so slim. As much as I like Cooper and Violet, this new twist to their storyline could be really good for the show. I'm very intriqued as to how this will work out and what Violet will think when she finally finds out. I hope we get to see that episode before next fall. Stupid writer's strike. Give them what they want already! Despite the typhoid outbreak, I enjoyed Sam and Naomi's storyline. It also gave us two more welcome guest stars - Lane from Gilmore Girls and the father, Graham, from My So-Called Life. Holy crap did I love that show. Forgive me, but I have to say it...Jordan Catalano. Sigh. I'm also way into the GG guest star streak we have going. Who could they get next? I vote for Kelly Bishop to play Violet's mom. Couldn't you just see her showing up and being all Mama Gilmore? Cooper would be puty in her hands. I love it. Ok, I'm back from my tangent. Typhoid. Nuns. So I was all set to believe the Father and one of the nuns were having an affair, then he told the cutesy story of their forbidden friendship and secret culinary rendezvous. I'm glad they kept it platonic between those two. I wouldn't want them to cheapen it. I liked how the entire experience restored Sam and Naomi's faith, not only in God but in each other. The familiar saying "when God closes a door he opens a window" comes to mind. I'd call their newfound sexcapades an open window, wouldn't you? So it seems we have a rerun next week, but in two weeks it looks like my wish is coming true - the sexy LAPD cop is back! So hot! But more importantly, it looks like Dell's secret love for Naomi is out of the vault. What will Sam do? It's going to be a long couple of weeks. Until then, have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
