111 Recap [Oct. 19th, 2004|11:23 pm]


[mood |creative]

Caps from the last two scenes are from paddies's site Queer Eyes, all others are by me.

1. The new job (00:28-2:38)

The boys on their way to the Diner. Talk of the day: Michael’s 30th birthday. Brian teases him about it, but Michael’s not in the mood for some banter. He finally declined Dr Dave’s offer of moving in with him, and that was the end of their relationship.

The boys arrive at the Diner. Michael babbles some more about the good things of being single, while Brian calls for service: Hey bus boy!

The Diner’s new bus boy is not amused and decides to greet the new customer his own special way:

Michael: “What is he doing here?”
Debbie: “Isn’t he adorable? The customers love him. His ass gets more compliments than the burgers.”

Turns out Justin needed a job to repay his debts to Brian. Although, he needs a bit more practice:


2. No more surprises (05:12-06:18)

Brian and Michael in the steam room. Michael had a nice birthday surprise at work, but he’s still rather annoyed and wants his birthday to be over without any more surprise heading his way. He says he doesn’t need a constant reminder that he’s not young and cute anymore. Brian is not really paying attention at first:

However, he then suggests that maybe Michael shouldn’t have broken up with the doc – he’d always be younger and cuter than him.

Michael: “I thought you couldn’t stand him.”
Brian: “When did I ever say that?”
Michael: “Every chance you got?”
Brian: “Maybe he wasn’t such a bad guy after all.”
Michael: “Well, now is the hell of a time to tell me.”
Brian: “Why, you didn’t break with him on account of me, did you?”
Michael: “Of course not.”
Brian: “That’s good. ‘Cause we can’t spent the rest of our fucking lives hanging out together.”

Brian eventually leaves, followed by two guys.

3. My room! (07:57-08:18)

Debbie hands Justin two boxes of Kleenex, asking him to bring them into his room. My room, Michael snaps, but Debbie tells him to back off, after all, he’s about to be thirty years old. So old, Justin whispers to him, so old. hehe.

Random cap from this scene:

*stares at Randy*
That's just the jeans, yeah?
I need help. You know, I have this obsession... never mind.

4. You owe my kid! (10:22-12:03)

A pissed off Debbie arrives at Brian’s loft, accusing him: You ruin my kid’s life. She gives us some history about Brian and Michael’s teenager years and how she knew Brian was trouble when she found him and her son drunk – at the age of fourteen. She might have made a point there. The latest trouble concerns Michael and his ex-relationship with Dr David. Debbie blames Brian for taking too much care of Michael and not allowing him to live a life of his own.

Debbie: “He had a chance with David. But you had to fuck it up.”
Brian: “He wasn’t having any fun.”
Debbie: “He’s had enough fun! You’ve all had enough fun. It’s time for him to be a man!”
Brian: “What do you want me to do about that?”

Debbie: “Well, I don’t know! Something! You owe my kid something!”
Brian: “Okay. You’re right. I’ll do something. It’s Mikey’s thirtieth birthday. He should have a party he never forgets.”

He’ll get one, alright.

5. An invitation (16:11-17:16)

Brian, with a weird hairdo, pays the good doc a visit and delivers an invitation to the party he plans to throw for Michael. Apparently, he already left a phone message, but David didn’t respond: I thought that was a joke. Uhm, no. Brian’s onto something.

Brian: “Doc, you’re always welcome at my place.”
David: “Thanks, but no, thanks.”
Brian: “Come on. You’re not gonna give up that easy, are you.”
David: “Hey, I didn’t give up. That was his decision.”
Brian: “Well, Mikey doesn’t always know what’s best for him.”
David: “No shit.”


David doesn’t give a final answer whether he’ll join the party or not.

6. Party! (19:56-37:41)

Michael, Emmett and Ted arrive at Brian’s loft. The mood could be better. Emmett’s worried: he run an HIV test and got a message from his doc, asking him to call him back, but it’s the weekend and now he fears he might be positive. Ted, who went for the test in the first place, is worried, too. Michael already found out that a surprise party awaits him, because Ted couldn’t keep his mouth shut. So here we go, Brian (OMG, the black shirt *drools*) opens the loft, looks at Michael, who’s all excited about ‘going to Babylon’, and only comments: Assholes. You told him.

The boys enter the loft, the lights go on, everything’s decorated and there are tons of people: SURPRISE!!!

Happy Birthday, Mikey:

Dr David arrives, too, but just after he said ‘hello’ to Michael, Brian drags him away.

Justin is there, too, of course. He’s tending the bar.

It’s time for Mikey to open his presents. Ted gives him some kind of elephant pants which are supposed to be funny – only nobody laughs except for Ted himself. Oh well.

David gives Michael a watch. He’s still admiring it waterproof features, when Brian suddenly calls for him: Hey, Mikey! Someone here to see you.

OMG, it’s Captain Astro, Michael’s favourite comic book hero. He gives Michael the present from Brian, the #1 edition of Captain Astro in print and starts to dance with the birthday boy. Well, I guess Brian beat David’s present easily. Neither David nor Debbie are amused about this latest development. But Michael’s happy, of course. Dancing with the Captain, yay!

Meanwhile, Justin and Mel are having some shots.


At some point during the party, Melanie is pretty drunk, slips a bit and starts to argue with Lindsay. They both seem to have difficulties ever since Brian refused to give up his parental rights. Later that night, Melanie throws up in Brian’s toilet – where Emmett was just busy making a deal with God, promising him to stop having sex if only he was negative.

But I’m jumping ahead. Ted is having a little talk with Brian, also telling him it’s time to let Michael go.

Brian: “I will if you will.”
Ted: “What?”
Brian: “Tell him you’ve been in love with him. For years.”
Ted: “What are you talking about?”
Brian: “Don’t act so innocent. You know what I mean. The boys saw your pictures. They saw your little shrine to Mikey. When you were in your coma. Of course I always knew. So, as I said. You’ll let him go and so will I. Ladies first.”

And with that, the discussion is over.

The later the evening… another guest arrives: Tracy from the store! Michael’s about to freak when he sees her and tries to get her out, telling her he doesn’t know all these people, yadayadayada. And then, Brian joins them. He takes Tracy by the hand and drags her across the room, to introduce her to a few friends. Michael follows them, too shocked to do anything, I guess.

Brian: “David. David, this is Tracy. Tracy, this is David.”
David: “Tracy. Yeah, we met.”
Tracy: “Right. You’re Mike’s chiropractor.”
Brian: “He’s also his boyfriend. Oh, excuse me, ex-boyfriend. First time they fucked, Michael came like, three times.”

Shock. Silence. Then: David punches Brian in the face.

Tracy storms out, Michael follows. Brian is bleeding! Hello? Could somebody, like, take care of him?

Uhm. He takes care of himself by sniffing some probably illegal substance.

Michael finally returns. He couldn’t hold Tracy back, she was pissed, accused him of making fun of her and lying to her and left. Can’t really blame her. Michael asks David to get out of here. Justin hands him his #1 Astro comic, but Michael doesn’t want it anymore.

Thanks for the party is Michael's goodbye to Brian, and with that, all their other friends also leave, but not without thanking the host, too.

Ted: “Well, Brian. You really know how to throw a birthday bash.”
Emmett: “Too bad all good things must come to an end.”
Melanie: “Well, well, well. Is anyone surprised? It’s the way he treats people. Am I right? Is there anyone here tonight who hasn't been fucked by Brian Kinney one way or another?”
Vic: “Well, what do you know? Now Michael has been, too.”
Debbie: “So you finally gave him what he wanted? Good for you!”
Lindsay: “How could you have done it to him, Brian? Your best friend in the whole world.”

Brian already got this annoyed ‘yeah, come on, just hit me’-look on his face.

Finally, Justin.

Brian: “Well? Aren't you going to make your big exit, too?”

Justin: “No. You're gonna need someone to help you clean up this mess.”

Hm. Brian doesn’t come up with some witty reply. The sap it me says he's happy about Justin staying with him.

7. It was the only way (39:48-42:57)

Justin's sleeping in Brian’s bed, with his clothes on – what, no sex last night?

Uhm. Debbie’s in the loft, too, she’s picking up Michael’s stuff. Brian comes out of the bathroom, bare chest, bottle of Beam in his hands. Debbie wakes Sunshine who has to get ready for work. However, he doesn’t get up until Brian tells him to. Justin eventually uses the bathroom, leaving Debbie and Brian alone.

Debbie: “Christ, I was pissed at you last night. Everybody was. Is. But right in the middle of cussing you out, I finally figured it out. You can’t do anything quietly, can you. Everything’s got to be a spectacle, a drama. You couldn’t have pushed him softly. You had to shove him off a fucking cliff.”
Brian: “Yeah, I had to; otherwise, he would just follow me around forever.”
Debbie: “Yeah, I guess he would have. Justin!”
Justin, from bathroom: “I’m brushing my teeth!”
Debbie: “You’ve loaned him your toothbrush?”
Brian: “I have s supply.”
Debbie: “Oh.”

Brian: “It was the only way.”
Debbie: “This David. He’s good for him.”
Brian: “Yeah, that won’t last.”
Debbie: “Maybe not. But he should least give it a try.”
Brian: “So, how’s he doing?”
Debbie: “Trying to figure out why his best friend would betray him. Of course he doesn’t realize that it’s the best thing that could ever happen. That you did him a favour. That maybe now he can finally have a chance to have a life.”
Justin: “Okay. I’m ready to go.”

Debbie, to Brian: “Take care, kiddo.”

She hugs him and kisses him on the cheek.

Debbie to Brian, close to tears: “Thank you.”

Awwww, Brian.


8. When you’re a boy (45:09-45:42, end scene)

Brian, alone in the loft. He’s lying on the floor; smoking and reading the Captain Astro comic.


End of Episode 111.

As suggested by viggo_addict, I have added the actor's names plus a tiny bit of who's gay in rl-gossip (scroll down) to my Season 1 - Faces and Places post. Feel free to add/point out mistakes, thanks.

that's one of the things I love more about brian.. his doing always the right thing without anyone noticing it, nor understanding it or at least giving him credit for it.. they keep their eyes shut, close in their ideas of what brian is and how he behaves,, except that they' haven't understood anything, and they don't even realize that brian is always been there for them when they needed him, in his own brianesque way, but there nonethele..
/rant pro brian..
I love this character too much! :p
and gale, awww gale!!

I couldn't agree more. It's just his very own way of dealing with things. Justin knows it, as does Debbie. Lindsay maybe too. Michael... not.

Yes, indeed. I really enjoy reading your S1 recaps. I still haven't seen it, but I will. Eventually. But your recaps will suffice for now.:) Thank you!

Mind you, I needed two (!) days to get around reading your new post! F*cking rl…

Somehow I miss the domesticity between Brian and Justin from the last sequels but it's good to see it still works.

Brian: “He’s also his boyfriend. Oh, excuse me, ex-boyfriend. First time they fucked, Michael came like, three times.”
Oh my, Brian! What's been that? At all the relationship between Brian and Michael confuses me a bit. On one hand he invites the Doc to his party, on the other hand he drags him away from Michael. One is supposed to understand that.

With the second that pic: *wants to cuddle Brian*

Also remarkable: He don't seems to have any interests in foreign guys anymore. In the steam room scene I thought 'Now is picking up some random guy again.' So one point more on my sympathy scala for Brian.
(Though I wouldn't mind seeing FM again! Guh...hot!)

I feel flattered that you named me and it's interesting to hear who is actually gay. It must be very strange for those who aren't to film the sex scenes.

What can I say: it's all Brian's way of dealing with things. Debbie and Justin see right through it;)

And btw, steam room:

Brian eventually leaves, followed by two guys.

They didn't follow to, uhm, help him dress;)

this has awlways been one of my fave episodes, cause it's the 1st time you really get to see brian's fucked up way of doing things. like debbie says, he can't do anything quietly. or like other people. it's always got to be in this ass-backwards way. and that's why he's such a fasinating charecter. and i think they write him that way because gale is obviusly, by far, the most talented actor on the show. so they can give him all this multi-leyred stuff to do.

also.... he looks soooo hot. great caps -thank you. my faves are, i think, the one of brian leening over his bar -no shirt of course- and of justin and his cute little feet passed out in brian's bed.

thank you. it's great having your re-caps to read as a nice little break from work.

Re: p.s.

^^I noticed that Too! I mean, I've seen stright guys who can really move their body, gyrate and thrust their hips, but it's nothing like Randy's (I've never seen Peter/Emmett dance). Just not as natural.

Re: p.s.

you can catch peter/ emmet dancing if your lucky some times. like the dream sequesnce from season four when he & drew go to babylon. it's never as much a focal point as randy.

Love the recap! That's one of my favorite episodes. I still think Justin and Melanie doing shots together is the cutest thing of all time. :)

Brian calls for service: Hey buzz boy!

I'm pretty sure it's BUS boy, as in, the one who buses the tables.

I found this community through your livejournal. On the infopage. And I'm glad I did.

I went through all episodes and wow - thank you so much for putting it up here. It's huge and I love it. The way you use caps and quotes. And also that you tell the whole story. Because I don't know anything about QAF.

I started searching around this weekend and did find a lot of Brian/Justin clips and I know the bottom storyline, but it's so hard when you watch something and really don't know what it's about. I so wish though I could've watched the serie, but it's never aired here in the Netherlands (as far as I know). I hope maybe, but I don't know. Sometimes there are really great series that we just don't get.

But anyway, this was all very helpful. Your caps are really great (and hot). And I just wanted to thank you. And hope you have the chance to do another episode soon. :D

Thank you so much for your lovely comment! It's the main reason I set up this journal (apart from drooling over pretty boys), and I'm glad to see it works so well. More will follow as soon as possible, stay tuned;)
