  • Mia Week Three

    This episode seemed to drag on at points, and there was definitely a fair share of boring moments, but the topics covered made this one of the most gripping episodes of the season. We saw Paul get pushed to the limit with how far he could take from Mia, and we're seeing the continuing evolution and growth of Mia through her three brief encounters with Paul.

    The problem with this particular storyline is that this is not something that can be stretched out over weeks. If it were on a regular drama, this may be a two or three episode story arc at the most.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Mia: (to Paul) Sometimes a comment is just a comment, right? 'Hi, how are you? Nice to see you. You owe me a child.' Aren't you glad I'm back?

    • Mia: (talking about Laura) It's obvious she was in love with you. Or is.
      Paul: How so?
      Mia: It's in and between her words. She might as well have sealed it with a kiss.

    • Paul: It seems to that you're pushing me so that you can end this treatment.
      Mia: No, I don't blame you. And it's no big deal.
      Paul: Actually, I think it's a very big deal. You were the one who waited for me in the cold, although I was late. You waited for me. Is it possible that you're goading me because it's easier to feel angry with me than look at your own pain?

    • Mia: When men look at a woman like Stefanie, they just see the whole package.
      Paul: And what would that be?
      Mia: Easy and fun and, you know, wild in bed at night and muffins from scratch in the morning.
      Paul: And what do they see when they look at you, do you think?
      Mia: Blonde lawyer. Might be fun to fuck, but...
      Paul: But what?
      Mia: But that's it. What I usually get... What I usually got from men is sex.

    • Mia: Oh, come on, Paul, just admit that I'm difficult. I push men away. Look at Bennett and Andre... I mean, pick any letter in the alphabet. I've sent them packing. I'm like a knife in your neck. It feels good when it's gone. Right?

    • Paul: Maybe you were trying to see if I could be pushed away.
      Mia: So you're saying that... my parents were right and Bennett is right -- that I'm so fucked up that nobody wants to be with me? because I push everyone away and I'm demanding and I'm needy and I'm angry and I'm weepy? I'm the seven fucking dwarves.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Mia: I saw this show on the TV the other night. BBC. About men and their... specially-made sex dolls.

      The 46-minute BBC documentary entitled Guys and Dolls, aired on January 17, 2007, took an in-depth look at the lives of four men who owned custom-made sex dolls called Real Dolls.
