This epi sets the official tone of the friendship between Joan and Toni. While Joan gives and gives, Toni willingly takes with no apologies and asks for even more. Even though Maya tries to talk to Joan about her visiting a therapist (actually talk her out of it-quote: black people don't go to therapists Joan, we go to church.) Joan, of course, doesn't listen to Maya at all, nor the therapist she's paying good money for. She brings Toni in on the sessions and her problem with Toni only seems to put aside-for the moment! Great acting, as usual, and quite a few lol moments.
The girls tell Joan to deal with her problems with Toni due to her hair falling out. Joan trys and tells her doctor that she is no longer seeing Toni which he doesn't believe at first but she convinces him. Over lunch he walks into the restuarant Toni & Joan are having lunch at. Toni wants to know who he is and Joan beats around the bunch but finally owns up. Toni is stunned that shes going to a phycologist & says that he is causing trouble between her & Joan and orders her to cut him off. Joan continues to sneak to see the doctor Maya & Lynn call her out on it when she puts her foot down w/them but not Toni. Toni shows up at Joans session to tell her side of the story the two argue and the doctor agrees to have couples therapy.
In this episode you sense that Toni wants to reconcile with Joan. She seems shocked that Joan is going to a therapist and stunned that she's seeing one becuase of her.
Toni trys to get Joan to cut the therapist off becuase she senses that he has advised Joan to cut her off. When this fails she goes to therapy with Joan in a half-hearted effect to reconcile their differences.
