The City of Chicago is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Illinois and the third most populous city in the United States. With an estimated population of 2,705,994 (2018), it is also the most populous city in the Midwestern United States.1
In Feel-Good Story, Diane and Guy are driving in the Girl Croosh van when Guy says he's only in Chicago for a week and doesn't think it's selfish to want to see his son. Diane points out he could have at least given his ex some notice first, and he asks her whose side she's on. Diane changes the subject and tells him to look out the window.
Guy then says they are driving through the second big, muddy, big-shoulders city by the lake. He then points out Willis Tower and the new Whitewhale Building. Diane then says Guy can not be excited about huge cooperation like Whitewhale setting up shop in his home town. Guy is just excited there is a new building in his home town. He then says, "in your face, Dubai." This causes Diane to laugh.
Guy and Diane are then eating lunch at Parmadillo's. Guy asks what she thinks of the sandwich. Diane says it isn't bad. Stefani then calls asking Diane, saying that while she loves the serious stories Diane is covering, she would like some more feel-good stories as well. Diane counters this, by saying the stories they are covering are really making a difference. Stefani tells Diane that the serious news is bumming her out.
Guy suggests they could do a story on the little girl who set up a lemonade stand to pay for her father's cancer treatment. Diane says that's not a feel-good story because this nation does not have subsidized healthcare, and therefore a child had to go join the workforce to pay for her father's cancer treatment to keep him alive.
Guy then gives her another headline, "local cameraman has a pretty good thing going on where he gets to travel all over the country; and fool around in hotel rooms with his beautiful, smart feisty producer and he's pretty sure this passionate intelligent warrior for truth, likes it too. So maybe these two knuckleheads should put their pride aside for a second, and make some feel-good videos." Diane smiles at this and she and Guy hold hands.
Diane and Guy then go and cover the Every Animal Girl Company. The ladies who own it tell Diane they are two best friends who started a doll company because they got tired of seeing dolls, that showed unrealistic beauty standards. Diane then asks if their dolls are made from recyclable materials. The ladies both start giggling nervously and talking over each other. They tell Diane, they were purchased by Toys Galore, which is a subsidiary of Whitewhale.
Diane says it must be exciting for them to be bought out by a huge conglomerate and watch their company grow. Diane then further presses them on the recycled materials. They say their main focus is empowering young girls. They also say they are closing the main Chicago factory, so that they can relocate overseas, for cheaper labor just before the holidays. Guy reminds her that they are supposed to stick to feel-good stories. Diane then says it is an exciting and empowering time for them.
Afterward, Diane asks Guy if he can edit that down, into something "feel-goody." Guy says he can but it'll be late, as he is having friends over to watch the game. Diane then says she's freezing and Guy hands her his coat. Diane then asks if it is the Chicago Baby Humans game, and Guy confirms that it is.
Diane reacts with discomfort upon seeing the mascot character on TV, despite Guy's attempts to comfort her by saying the character is a reference to her "proud human heritage." Guy then awkwardly introduces Diane to his friends, as "the woman he works with." Diane then runs off to the restroom, saying she'll be right back. The doorbell rings and Guy goes to answer it. Diane washes her face and gets ready to come out of the restroom when Guy comes in.
Guy comes in apologizing. Diane at first thinks it's because they are not ready to put a label on their relationship. Guy then says his son's speech and debate tournament was canceled, and he showed up, catching Guy off guard. Guy then explains, he doesn't bring his son around women unless it's serious. He then tells Diane, she needs to escape through the bathroom window, and that she should stay in a hotel. Diane agrees that makes sense, and complements his home, before escaping. Diane lands in some bushes and runs to grab her suitcase.
While BoJack is narrating this, Diane is walking to her hotel, freezing. She then wakes up the next morning and gets a call from Stefani. Stefani tells Diane made a big impression with the guys at Whitewhale. She says they bought Girl Croosh, to Diane's shock. She then goes on to say they technically bought Fuddrucker's, and merged it with Dow Chemical, to create a new media venture called Spronk! She then says Spronk! acquired Univision, which will include Girl Croosh, in the Gizmodo-branded mist of advertorial.
Diane says that's terrible. Stefani says not for her, she'll be rich. Diane reminds her she already is rich. Stefani wishes her good luck with Spronk!, which is currently rebranding as Content Spew. Diane then says, "Oh, Spronk me."
Later, at the Whitewhale building, Diane and Guy attend a meeting. Guy tries to apologize for the previous night, and Diane says they should just watch the movie. The movie explains how Whitewhale got their start, through vertical integration and the oligopoly. The video then tells them they have also been "gobbled up" by Whitewhale. Diane then asks if they are supposed to be charmed by this. They are then given binders of their sister companies and are told to be mindful of them, as they spew their content.
Diane and Guy then go to Parmadillo's to review the binders. Diane asks if Guy thinks Whitewhale bought Girl Croosh just to kill their video. Guy then says Diane should have just made a feel-good video about best friends starting a business together, as they had originally planned. Diane says maybe it's for the best and Guy can get a new job in Chicago and spend more time with his kid. Guy then asks Diane about the book of essays she wants to write. She then tells him the ridiculously long working title. Guy then points out she should save something, for the inside of her book.
Diane then says, she guesses that's it for their relationship. Guy then says unless that's not the end just yet. Diane questions what he means. Guy then suggests doing a video about anything they wanted and then posting it on the website, before Whitewhale realizes they still have all the passwords. Diane then suggests they do a video about Whitewhale. She then gets excited at the prospect of taking Whitewhale down.
They then go to the art museum to talk discreetly, to a reporter from the Tribune, named Isabel. Isabel then makes a reference to The Great Gatsby, which confuses Diane. Isabell retorts Diane should read a book. Guy then tells her that she should be nice. Isabel says she wishes she had the energy. Her obsession destroyed her relationships and obliterated her career for nothing. She had one contact on the warehouse floor, Matt Minnowman. Isabel says maybe that's their story. Diane questions why isn't it Isabel's story. Isabel says, her editor thought she was becoming too obsessed with the Whitewhale beat, so he moved her to the Holiday gift guide desk.
Diane says she can't believe they found a lead, as they leave the museum. She then questions how it's so cold outside in October. Guy tells her there are only two seasons in Chicago: cold and extreme humidity. He then tells her she'll learn to love it. Diane and Guy then take a romantic walk through the snow on their way home.
Diane is then staying up late, doing a Poodle search on Matt Minnowman. She finds out he died in an accident when he was staying late at work. Diane tells Guy he died when he was trying to expose working conditions in the warehouse. They then interview various employees and do their own research. According to the employees, they left Matt Minnowman's body outside, as a warning to the other workers. They are then working from home, and Guy says he doesn't think they can attribute it to intentional cruelty it, it's callousness. Diane asks, can't it be both. Guy elaborates, saying Whitewhale isn't evil they are just capitalists. Diane then asks what the difference is.
Diane then gets a call from Whitewhale to meet the next day, and to bring their camera with them. Diane questions if Whitewhale is on to them, why would they want to meet. Guy says he guesses they'll find out and Diane says she's weirdly excited. Guy then gives Diane a coat. Diane says she loves it, but she would not get much use of a coat like that in L.A. Guy then tells her it's for Chicago. Diane then questions if this is Guy's way of asking her to move to Chicago. He jokingly says not everything has a hidden meaning or conspiracy behind it; sometimes a coat is just a coat.
Guy then questions Diane on why she should go back to L.A. Diane says it's because she lives there. Guy says there is nothing for her in L.A. anymore and then asks why she is punishing herself. Diane tries to say she isn't, but Guy cuts her off and says he also has to suffer every time Diane needs to borrow his coat. Diane asks if that inconveniences him. Guy then asks why he has to suffer because Diane has this ideological objection to feeling good.
Diane says she would love to have the luxury of feeling good about herself. She then says that must be really nice for Guy to feel good about himself, while the world burns around him. Guy tells Diane it's not about the world, it's about their relationship. Diane then asks what exactly they are relationship-wise. She wonders if she's his girlfriend or just some woman he works with. Diane then leaves the new coat with Guy and says she's checking back into the hotel.
The next day they meet at Whitewhale. Diane says she didn't know if he would come. Guy hands her the new coat and says they have a job to do. Guy records a video of their meeting. Whitewhale says he doesn't know what kind of video they are making, but he doesn't mind. Diane says he can't stop them. Whitewhale reiterates he doesn't want to stop them. Whitewhale explains when people put out videos or media calling his company evil, people think their business is uncompromised by morality, and their stocks go up. Diane then questions this, saying it doesn't bother his shareholders, that one of his employees died in an accident.
Whitewhale then questions what Diane is referring too. She brings up Matt Minnowman and shows Whitewhale his picture. Whitewhale admits to the murder of Minnowman. Whitewhale then says Minnowman took too many bathroom breaks and encouraged the other employees to do so as well. Diane then asks Whitewhale if he's not worried about this getting leaked, especially now, when they are recording him.
Whitewhale then informs her congress passed a bill legalizing murder if you are rich. Diane checks the news on her phone in disbelief and realizes it's true. Whitewhale suggests Diane could become rich and murder him. He then offers them gift bags on their way out.
At the train station, Guy says they could still post the video. Diane sounding defeated asks why. Guy says it has been real and he's not going to be the guy who begs her to stay. He says their life together would be really good if she chooses to stay, though. Diane says she can't stay with Guy, if he is the only good thing in her life, as she feels it is too much pressure. Diane then boards the train, and Guy tells her she is going to get screwed, as she wanted to go to the airport and that train is going to Cottage Grove.
In A Little Uneven, Is All, Guy thanks Diane for making breakfast. They hold hands, and he asks if she's working on her memoir. She confirms that was the plan. She then nervously makes an excuse about having to wash the dishes, saying the task will take all morning, and once the morning is over the whole day will be shot.
Guy tries to comfort her, by saying he knows starting new things is hard, but the hardest part is starting. She admits he's right. He also reminds her that he is a freelance cameraman who pays child support. Guy then advises her to get an advance, if she could.
Princess Carolyn then gets a call from Diane. Diane then asks Princess Carolyn for advice. She tells her about the new book she's writing. She says she's thinking about not starting, till she sells the book to a publisher. Princess Carolyn asks what is it. Diane says it's half essay, half memoir and a work in progress. She then recites the very convoluted working title. Diane then tells Princess Carolyn she is getting another call.
Princess Carolyn says while Diane was blabbing away, she had her lit assistant take care of everything. Diane starts to protest, and Princess Carolyn interjects that a navel-gazey book of observations sounds fun. She then informs Diane she sold it, and she has six months to work on it. Princess Carolyn tells her to enjoy the process. Diane, who is shocked, hangs up the phone, and then groans.
Later, Diane is typing on her laptop, in the kitchen. Guy says he's glad to see her work. She panics and slams the laptop closed, saying she doesn't want him looking at it yet. She then apologizes, saying she was really into it. Guy asks if it's going well, and she says he was right, once she started it was easy. Diane then goes on to say, that so much of her career has been writing for and about other people, and how terrible everything is. Diane says writing about herself is refreshing.
Guy says he doesn't want to interrupt her flow and exits the kitchen. The screen of her laptop is seen, it says "I am terrible," written multiple times. Diane then looks sad.
Diane and Guy introduce themselves and inform him he was kidnapped across state lines. Jorge is angered by all this. Todd throws his arms up in the air excitedly and says they are going to break into the Whitewhale building. Jorge asks why. Todd says so they can get his kidney back and save his mother.
Todd says he also wants to prove to Jorge once and for all he is not some "wacky screw-up who engages primarily in goofy whimsical mess-arounds." Jorge asks how they got him on the plane and Todd tells him they did a Weekend At Bernie's. Todd then shows him pictures on his phone, where he put sunglasses on Jorge, and then they were on the plane and went sightseeing. Jorge then groans at this.
Diane then brings them back to the topic of the holiday party at Whitewhale. She tells Todd she can use her employee ID to get in, as she is still technically on the payroll. Guy asks Diane why she didn't quit, as they haven't worked there in months. Diane says nobody's noticed and they still keep sending her checks. Diane explains cashing them is her way of gradually "taking the man down" from the inside.
Guy pulls Diane aside so they can talk in private. In the restroom, Guy asks Diane if this is the best use of her time. He says he knows she's been beating herself up because the writing process of the book has been going slowly. Diane then says the book is about her living her life, so by living her life, she is, in fact, working on the book. Guy tells her if she doesn't have to write the book if she doesn't want to.
Diane says, of course, she wants to. Guy tells her she's been pretty down on herself. Diane then says actually "pretty down" is herself. Diane says they are being rude to her guests and she suggests Guy offers them one of his fancy beers.
In the living room, Todd is strategizing with Jorge about their plan for getting the kidney back. Todd says they need to sneak into the party, find out where the kidneys are, retrieve his kidney, and sneak out all without drawing attention to themselves. Guy and Diane walk back in, and Guy cautions them saying if Jeremiah Whitewhale catches them, he is legally allowed to murder them. Jorge says this plan is ludicrous.
Todd then tells Jorge, that instead of criticizing him like he has done his entire life, he could get on board. Todd then tells him their plan will work out, and Jorge tells him things don't just work out. Todd tells Jorge he doesn't understand why he has to be so negative. Todd then asks if he wants to help his mother or just go back to the hospital and wait. Jorge sighs and says he's in, which Todd smiles at.
At the Whitewhale building, Todd says he's going into the Christmas party. Jorge makes him promise to be perspicacious in there. Todd replies that he doesn't even know what the word means. Jorge sighs at this. Todd goes to the main entrance with Diane's ID. The shark man at the door asks if Todd's Diane Nguyen. He then says he finds that very hard to believe Todd is Diane. Todd then says that's racist. Todd then lots of people don't look like their last names, he uses himself as an example, saying he is white but his last name is Chavez. The shark then says he thought Todd's last name was Nguyen. Todd then says, yes that's his name, Todd Nguyen. The Shark then asks him, not Diane Nguyen. Todd then says that's his name alright, or he isn't Todd Chavez.
Todd then tells Jorge that was a bust. Todd says Jorge can be Diane and he can Jorge. Jorge then gets an idea and tells him to get in the trash can. Todd misunderstands and says he knows he's a disappointment to Jorge but he does not belong in a trash can, and he hasn't lived in one for several years. Jorge then picks up Todd and puts him in the trash can. Jorge then pretends to be a custodian wheeling the trash can inside. He speaks Spanish to the shark man and points to the door. The man lets him go inside. Todd then says that was amazing and Jorge tells him no, it was straightforward and logical.
At Whitewhale Todd and Jorge take the elevator up to the kidney warehouse. They are almost stopped by a security guard but Jorge manages to get him to leave by telling him there is a hot dog-related emergency. Todd uses a touch screen to locate his kidney. While they are waiting for the request, Jorge thanks Todd for coming with him to get the kidney, saying after his mother is OK, he and Todd's mother will never bother Todd again. Jorge says he knows that's what Todd wants. Todd then questions why he'd want that. Jorge shrugs in response. Todd says Jorge never understood him.
Jorge says he raised Todd as his own flesh, and he was tough on him because he expected big things from him. Todd tells Jorge he wasn't tough he was mean. Jorge says because the world is mean and Todd says not his world. Jorge says he wanted Todd to be his best for Todd and to push him to be his best self. Jorge says he sees how he failed Todd. Todd counters Jorge didn't fail him and he's not a failure. Jorge sighs and says OK to this.
Todd then asks why Jorge needs to be proud of him on his terms, and why he can't see Todd is living a good life. Todd then says he has a good life with a job and friends. Jorge says he sleeps on the couch and plays with puppets all day. Todd then says he's happy and asks what more Jorge wants from him. Jorge tells Todd he wants to know that he's OK. Todd then asks why he hasn't called in ten years. Jorge starts to say he wanted to but then cuts himself off and tells Todd his mother loves him but she's very proud. Jorge says if Todd calls she'll talk to him. Todd then points out she can't talk now because she's in a coma. Jorge sadly sighs and says yeah.
Diane is watching the shadows of Jorge and Todd from the parking ramp through a pair of binoculars and wonders what they are talking about. Diane then notices the security guard riding up the elevator. Diane tries to call the Chavezes on her walkie-talkie. The other walkie talkie is seen in the dish rack in the kitchen of the apartment. Guy picks it up and asks why the walkie-talkie is in the kitchen.
A man yells at Diane, letting her know she can't be in the parking ramp, as it's for customers only. Diane says she'll buy a pretzel. The man tells her she can just leave, and Diane says now she wants the pretzel. Guy then asks her to bring him a pretzel too over the walkie-talkie.
Back at the warehouse, Jorge tells Todd they need to leave as someone is coming. Todd tells him he's not leaving without the kidney. Jorge tells him this is serious. Todd sarcastically tells him he knows he's very serious. The two Chavezes start wrestling with each other. The security guard comes out of the elevator tells them to stay where they are. The kidney box then comes off the conveyer belt. Jorge puts his hands up and defeated, Todd does so as well. The security guard misunderstands and thinks Todd is being attacked by Jorge. Todd explains he really wants his kidney for his mother. The security guard agrees as Whitewhale owns hundreds of Kidneys.
In The Face of Depression, in Chicago, Diane watches Mr. Peanutbutter and Joey's PSA for depression in pajamas while eating junk food.
That same night, BoJack arrives in Chicago and goes to Diane and Guy's apartment. Diane answers the door. Diane suggests they go for a walk, making an excuse that the heat's broken, to avoid BoJack seeing the messy living room. They go to Parmadillo's and Diane asks BoJack why he didn't tell her he was coming.
BoJack explains it was a spontaneous decision, as he didn't want to be in L.A. Diane tells him she's glad he came. BoJack then asks if she's doing OK. Diane tells him she's doing great, has an amazing boyfriend, and got an advance on the book she's writing. BoJack then asks if he can crash at her place. She yells no.
They arrive back at the apartment and BoJack sees the true state of the living room. Diane finally admits to him she's depressed. She goes on to say it started when she was having difficulty starting her book which then snowballed into her boyfriend saying she should take antidepressants. BoJack then questions if she'll start taking them and Diane says she's not sure she sees the point. BoJack says the point would be to curb her depression. She then talks about flipping over nothings to find something.
Diane goes on to say she and Guy will probably break up soon anyway, saying there is only so much he can take of the real her. BoJack questions what she means by the real her. She then gestures around the room.
BoJack then tells her someone got mad at him and told him he ruins everything and that's just what he is. BoJack then says it took him saying that out loud to realize how stupid it sounded, even though that's what he believed about himself for so long, and he thought he was someone who couldn't be changed. He then thanks Diane for believing in him, when he didn't believe in himself, and encouraging him to get help.
BoJack wakes up in the living room the next morning and cleans up the mess in the living room. He then leaves the apartment.
Later, Diane goes to the airport to pick up Guy. She has presumably begun taking her antidepressants, as she has gained some weight and looks happier. Diane holds a sign that reads "Dawson's Creek Was Always Bad," which Guy smiles at.
In Good Damage, Diane and Guy are watching a Chicago Baby Humans game. Guy tells Diane she should try a Chicago style baked potato. She then questions why everything has to be "Chicago style" as it's obvious they are in Chicago. Guy tells her to just try it.
Diane notices the fork and knife are individually wrapped in plastic and goes on a rant about the plastic industry and how the Baby Humans are owned by the CEO of Plastico and therefore they are complicit in the money-laundering scheme that is also killing the planet. She then accepts this by saying what are they going to do about it as she shrugs and smiles.
Diane is then seen on her antidepressants and appears to be much calmer and content with her everyday life. However, she is seen still struggling to get a start on her memoir.
Later, Guy comes into their bedroom and says good morning and asks if she wants to go to the museum. Diane says she'd love to, however, she needs to start working on her book. She tells Guy she'll go with him next time. Guy then says he will play video games all day and gives her a kiss before leaving the room. Diane then stares at her laptop screen with tension on her face.
Diane's writing process is shown through crude sketches in her imagination. Diane introduces herself to the readers and says she is a young girl living in Boston. She makes notes of where she needs to fix things later. Diane imagines her father saying he is very unsupportive of her. She then flashes back to high school and her high school bully Krissy Keating. She makes a mental note to see if she can use Krissy's real name.
She then imagines BoJack telling her to put him in the book because he gave her a salad bowl. Todd appears reminding her he broke the bowl and to answer her phone. Mr. Peanutbutter reminds her he fixed the bowl with gold because he read an article about the Japanese art of Kintsugi. He then says the bowl kept falling apart and Diane says that the bowl falling apart is similar to their marriage falling apart. BoJack's voice tells her he is calling her and to answer her phone.
Diane snaps out of her daydream and answers the phone. Diane answers the call at a mall food court and BoJack invites her to his showcase for his students at the end of the semester. BoJack tells her it probably won't be very good but he wants to pack the house with familiar faces. She tells him she will be there.
BoJack then asks how the book is coming along. She then tells him she is working on it at the mall. He questions why she's at the mall and she explains it's the only place she can sit for ten hours and get work done. Diane says she has many stories to tell but she is not sure what the book is yet. BoJack questions if she's written any stories about him and Diane replies she feels she has written about him enough. BoJack protests that no one else is as good at it and Diane says she is sure someone will rise to the occasion.
Later, Diane is once again seen attempting to start the draft of her books through the sketches. She has trouble sorting out her ideas. She then gets distracted seeing two women walk into a trendy clothing store called Trauma that is having a spring sale. Diane is seen in the fitting room trying on a yellow tube top which does not fit her. Diane peeks out the door and asks a sales associate if they have a larger size. The associate tells her they don't use clothing size numbers at Trauma. Diane gets frustrated with this and puts her own shirt back on.
Diane then gets a call from Princess Carolyn who proceeds to tell her Birthday Dad is a huge hit and about the successes of her company. Diane asks if Princess Carolyn just called her to brag and Princess Carolyn says she called to question her on how her book writing process is going. As she is walking out of the store, Diane replies she's still trying to figure out what her book is, exactly. Princess Carolyn questions what Diane thinks the book is about and Diane tells her it is about good trauma.
Princess Carolyn tells her she needs to have something ready for the publisher, as it has been six months.
In Chicago, Diane tries to narrate her first draft to Guy but gets frustrated and apologizes saying she knows it isn't good. Diane confesses to him because of her medication she can't remember what order the events in her life took place and everything seems foggy also, she keeps getting distracted. Guy points out that her medication has helped her mood improve significantly. She admits that is true and he does have a point. Guy encourages her to stick with both the writing and the fog of her memory as she leaves the room.
Diane then once again is seen trying to sort through her childhood memories at the mall. In particular, she tries to remember the times her father was abusive towards her but her memory is still foggy. Out of those memories pops out a fictional character named Ivy Tran who is a teenage detective who solves mysteries in the mall. Diane then snaps out of her fantasy and looks at her computer and realizes she has written about Ivy Tran, Food Court Detective.
At home, Diane shows the story to Guy and he tells her it's fun and he likes it. Diane tells him her book is supposed to be a profound treatise on damage but she can't even access her damage due to the medication. Guy reminds her she had trouble writing the book back when she was depressed and she's having trouble now. He suggests that maybe she just doesn't want to write the book.
Diane counters she wants to but it's hard. She says she is not going to be writing The Mall Mysteries of Ivy Tran. Guy then tells her to come on and think about it.
At the pharmacy, Diane goes to pick up her medication. She then gets a call from Princess Carolyn who tells Diane she's been pitching her book and everyone is excited about the movie adaptation. However, she needs to send Princess Carolyn some pages. The pharmacist calls out Diane's last name but she has left without picking up the medication.
Diane is sitting in bed trying to work on her book. She tells Guy his whistling is distracting her from work and she couldn't sleep last night. He then encourages her to keep going with her work. Guy later returns and asks her how her progress was on her work. Diane questions what he means. Guy then says he thought she was going to write today. Diane looks out the window and realizes it's night time. Diane says she was thinking her thoughts and then bursts into tears. She then heads to the bathroom and vomits in a plant.
Guy then tells her maybe she should stop for the day and try again tomorrow. Diane then says she has got to get back to work. She once again tries to sort through her thoughts but gets overwhelmed and starts breathing heavily. Guy then comes into the kitchen and asks her what's going on. She responds that her chest feels heavy and then breaks down and admits to Guy she stopped taking her medication. He asks her why.
She tells him she is terrible and breaks down crying saying she deserves this. Guy then tells her she is going through withdrawal. She then asks if she is going to need to be on drugs forever. Guy tells her to take her pills again and when she feels better they can think of a different strategy.
Later, when Diane has started taking her medication again Guy asks her how she's feeling. She tells him she feels a little better. Diane then apologizes for being stressed and says maybe she should call Princess Carolyn and ask for more time. Guy tells her before she does that he has to tell her something. He makes her promise she won't be mad. He then confesses he sent Princess Carolyn the Ivy Tran pages as Diane receives a phone call from Princess Carolyn.
Princess Carolyn tells Diane over the phone that she loved the Ivy Tran pages and she sees merchandise potential and she pitched it to a few studios. Diane protests saying that's not the book she wanted to write. Princess Carolyn says she's hearing a "maybe" as she hangs up.
Guy then asks if they will have a "Boston style fight" which Diane smiles at.
In her imagination, Ivy asks Diane why she is so sad all the time. Diane says she doesn't know. Ivy says Diane should be fun and popular just like her. Diane says it's not that easy. Ivy replies "Yeah I know but wouldn't it be nice if it was?"
In Xerox of a Xerox, Guy tells Diane who is sitting at her laptop that they are really hyping up the BoJack interview. He then asks Diane if she'll watch it. Diane says she needs to be focused on her book and the mall-related mysteries aren't going to solve themselves. Also, she has spent enough time focused on BoJack. Guy tells her that sounds like a very emotionally healthy woman.
Diane goes on to say they already know what BoJack will say in the story and goes on to list what she thinks he'll say in the interview. Guy then remarks Diane sounds real done with it as he shakes his head.
Later, Diane and Guy are having lunch at Parmadillo's and Guy notices Diane isn't listening to what he's saying and watching the news segment with BoJack and Biscuits. Guy then tells her if she wants to watch it's OK since BoJack is her friend and this is a really big deal for him. He goes on to say Diane doesn't really talk about herself or her past with him. Diane says she doesn't want to get dragged back into that other stuff. Diane then retorts she has been living in Chicago for six months and she still hasn't met Guy's son. Guy then tells her she can meet Sonny tomorrow.
Later, at Parmadillos, Diane is finally introduced to Sonny by Guy. She tells him it's nice to finally meet him. Guy and Diane congratulate Sonny for making the Varsity lacrosse team. Guy then leaves to get cheese fries and while he's gone Sonny asks Diane what her deal is. He goes on to say his father has a thing for broken women and they leave after he nurses them back to health.
Diane then asks if his father thinks she's going to leave him. Sonny responds it doesn't matter because his parents are still in love and going to get back together. Diane says that his parents hate each other and they fight all the time. Sonny then bursts into tears and Diane detracts her statement about his parents hating each other. Guy arrives back with their food and says he was gone for two minutes.
Diane is sitting in her apartment trying to write on her notepad. She then decides to turn on the TV to BoJack's interview. Biscuits is questioning BoJack about hurting people not because he means to hurt people but because he just doesn't care. BoJack then admits that's him. Diane winces and smiles at this.
