Right and I think it got worst when you got Richard and Emily's generation, but how people like Paris's parents or the Huntzburgers were. It's like the old Klive saying: "As much as we try to avoid being like our parents, we turn into a more twisted version of them. Some good, some worst." I think Rory said it best: "But your dad and grandfather did all that stuff too." Logan: "Yeah, but they eventually gave it up and took over the business."
Something that also bothered me about the revival was when we saw the LDB they were not guys in their 30s that had "grew up" and moved on. They were a bunch of people trying to act like they could be 19 again because you know, they had the time and money to do that followed by: "Oh damn, my knee surgery, I guess I'm not as young as I once was." Like they were some 50 year old with a mid life crisis. Hence, acting worst then their parents were at that age who were working, had a family and trying to have a life that didn't lead to meaningless sex and passed out on the lawn and mom and dad being called. Yeah, so great the life of 32 and then going: "Shit, I have to be at work tomorrow."
Talk about screwed up raising.
Or: "Money will never buy me happiness, but hell I need it or I can't do shit!" Yeah, it was like with Emily. Either realize the past is the past and move on or go be a condescending: "I hated how my mother forced me to do this crap, but I'm going to do it anyhow." It was like how Luke wondered what the DAR was and Emily and the other women kept laughing. How about you, I don't know: "JUST ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION?" Instead it was: "Oh you poor, diner owner, you don't know anything and are pathetic."
