Talking points on Girls, Season 2, Episode 2
He said, she said is a discourse on the second season of Girls from two points of view. (Find the conversation on episode 1 here.)
Marnie continues to struggle on the job front. Elijah and Marnie decide not to tell Hannah about their brief–only two or three “pumps”–sexual encounter. Shoshanah and Ray are in love. And so too are Jessa and Thomas John, post-honeymoon. Hannah calls 911 on Adam and breaks it off with her Republican lover.
- At least he’s speaking to you: George won’t even return my texts or Facebook messages. (Elijah to Marnie)
- I can’t take your criticism because I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drummer, ever since cutting off my camp shirt into a halter top. (Hannah to Elijah)
- You were with George for a very long time and he’s on Hotmail. (Hannah to Elijah)
- I think the world has like three curators it actually needs. (Ray to Marnie)
- It’s really terrible. You know what I realize? It’s because I’m painting something I love. I’m used to painting something that I hate, like my mom, or scenery. (Jessa to Thomas John)
- What’s wrong with a Republican? They’re just the same as Democrats. They’re all dirt bags. (Jessa to Hannah)
- I didn’t feel like it either [having sex] but I didn’t want you to have blue balls because it’s another thing I don’t believe in. (Hannah to Sandy, her Republican lover)
He said, she said, after the episode:
She said: I liked this episode more than last week’s. Did you read that article last weekend in the New York Times profiling the three boys in Girls–Adam, Ray and the good-looking guy who we don’t see at all in this episode? The article mentioned that the three actors had been non-stop referencing John Cassavetes. It just reminded me of one of the reasons I think I’m drawn to the show because in your twenties you’re not self-conscious about talking about John Cassavetes as an influence. And there’s a certain innocence that’s really easy to mock, I guess. They’re not ashamed, and maybe they’re making fun of it themselves.
