DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
HOW do you think Seth’s going to go in rehab? It’s just money up against the wall as far as Joel and Julia go, I would’ve thought. Bit rich really, Sarah even asking her sister to pay for her ex-husband’s treatment when Joel and Julia are in the process of adopting a baby illegally from the coffee girl at Julia’s office. Or at any time. I thought the grumpy father was way out of line, sitting there on his couch those couple of episodes ago, using words like clean and sober, all the jargon, lecturing not just his adult daughter but also his adult wife, telling her she wasn’t to give Sarah any money either. But now I’m not so sure.
His behaviour was appalling, it generally is, but was he wrong about Seth? Maybe not. It just wasn’t any of his business. But that wouldn’t be in the spirit of Parenthood, Zeek keeping out of it. Anyway, tonight we’re going to see how hard it’s going to be.
I’ve always thought I wouldn’t mind a bit of a spell in a rehabilitation facility myself. Nice rest, selection of drugs, early nights. Don’t think I’ll go to the one Seth’s at. Even if twisted Alfred
