Shawn: Look, we all have our familial resentments, but those are usually best aired in a controlled forum like an intervention, an exorcism, or a cock fight. Working out your ire against Mommy and Daddy via a Recon personal ad should be reserved for those with the last names Barrymore or Lohan only.
David: At first I thought the blue padded mat was part of one of those Barton Patient Transfer Systems, a device that allows folks to maneuver their elderly and addled family members effortlessly in and out of bed. But no, no, no this divan sandwich has been put together by a homeowner who is completely mobile and independent -- in fact he's a bit of a revolutionary.
Shawn: It's like The Walking Dead's title credit sequence -- lots of timeworn objects representing the passing of a bygone world. Hell, this whole thing could be a Walking Dead set. An old schoolhouse, maybe? A crumbling farmhouse? There's an elegiacal quality to virtually every human curio in sight: books redolent of lost language piled on an antique hutch, children's toys gathering dust, Mom's sun bonnet sitting in a box, the keyboard lying open and silent.
