E03 - The daughter left me the biggest impression on this episode 1. The things you do will always travel around. So be careful what you say or do. There's never a secret.
2. Never piss off a humiliated girl.
EP04 - Get tough 1. Dave's boyfriend got tough with the guy calling him fag; David got tough with the competitor
2. When life requires you to get tough, to get dirty, don't be afraid. That might be the best way
3. Mom: Be careful with him. He's more fragile than he'd think Brenda: Aren't we all?
EP07 - Brotherhood This episode centres around the brotherhood between a. Nate's girlfriend and her brother, who became unstable once or twice a year. The girlfriend took up all the shit and cared for the brother b. David and Nate - Nate accidentally found out David's watching porn and supports him, and after the funeral told David he loved him c. The dead and his brother - sometimes you are afraid to tell your true feelings to your closest people because you know what they will say and you are afraid that they won't fully accept your POV... probably until your death. Isn't it ironic that sometimes it takes death, and death only, for one to realise that you've got to accept your family for who they are and love them for who they are?
EP08 - Crossroads Several characters are standing at a crossroad on this episode a. Rico was offered a better position by a competitor - he took it. I would have taken it as well. b. Ruth found out she had feelings for her boss - this came as no surprise at all because the longer you stay with someone the more likely you are to develop affection for this person. c. Nate bursts out at Brenda's house because she has intimacy issues and was not letting him in on many critical matters
