Eric: “You will not feed on Sookie. She’s merely a waitress. Whose fear is why we’re here, and is the reason I got to kill Russell — thanks, by the way — and whose house I own. She took care of me when I was a baby-man. We fucked in Narnia. It was even gayer than my storyline with Bill this season.”

Tara hefts four cases of TruBlood with her pinkie, calls Pam “Vampire Barbie” which is not her best work, and heads back out to the bar, the better to once again pore over the many mixed messages of their relationship — and the unsettling fact of exactly how easy it is to imagine Oprah and Gayle drinking a person’s blood together. With some homemade scones or something. This is my favorite thing that ever happened on Oprah:
Oprah: “Duchess Sarah Ferrrrguson is here! To show us how to make English sco-ohhhnes!”
Fergie: “We call them skaaaans, not scohhhns.”
Oprah, angrily: “— Oh yeah? Well we just call ‘em biscuits.”
