Family Ties “A, My Name is Alex” (part 2 of 5)
Now that he’s been wisely left alone again, Alex starts to hallucinate once more that Greg is in the kitchen. This time, the two of them proceed to reenact the last time Alex saw Greg, including that whole thing about moving a piano that Alex just described twenty seconds ago. I mean, really. Who owns a piano in this day and age, much less makes their friends help move it? God, that’s annoying. I kind of wish he was dead.
And not that it really matters all that much, but I’m obligated to mention that Greg is played by Brian McNamara, who was Lindsay Lohan’s dad in I Know Who Killed Me. Not the dad played by Neal McDonough. The other dad we only saw in the one scene with Paula Marshall. You know, he hates Hobbitses. He wasn’t Lindsay’s psycho dad. And by psycho dad, I mean Michael Lohan.
So there’s lots of fast-paced banter between Alex and the Ghost of Greggers Past. Alex says he can’t help move the piano because he’d rather go meet up with some girls, but Greg knows he hasn’t had a date in three months. Finally, Greg tells Alex “suit yourself” and leaves, and after a moment, Alex is all No! No! Gregger don’t goooo!! He stares out the back door of the house, and… commercial. Well, that was quite a… thing. Cliffhanger. Whatever.
