Storyline

David is living at home alone now that Keith is on the road with rock star Celeste. He does take advantage of an out of the blue call from an old acquaintance, Sarge, but still suffers from post-traumatic stress. Keith finally comes out to one of his co-workers but it's an encounter with Celeste that sends him packing. Ruth has come to the end of her tether when she returns from church to find that George has trimmed a tree her first husband had planted in the yard. She leaves a note saying she's gone away for awhile. Having told Joe that she has slept with someone on the side - without identifying who - she undertakes to try harder to be good. When Joe unexpectedly comes home and finds Brenda and Nate on the sofa half-naked, he doesn't have to guess who the other guy was. Claire comes to a decision on advancing her relationship with Edie but it leads to frustration all-round. Vanessa and her sister Angelica decide to visit Sophia and let her know just what they think of her fooling ... Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Breaking with tradition, the usual opening death scene actually takes place after the main action begins, not before. See more »

Goofs

Joe plays his French horn reading from a score, but when he turns pages, it is clearly a piano score, not even matching the tempo he is playing. See more »

Quotes

David Fisher: I have to get control of myself.
Claire Fisher: No, David, if you were any more controlled, you'd be a sculpture. You know what? Last night I had a humiliating homosexual experience of my own.
David Fisher: Seriously? What happened?
Claire Fisher: Not much. I never even went down on her.
David Fisher: You can stop there.

It Is not About Sex, It is Betrayal
19 November 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Claire has an unsatisfactory homosexual experience with Edie. Claire feels pulled to Edie, but not sexually driven. James Dubois Marshall drives his car to Fisher & Diaz for his own funeral and dies. Vanessa throws Rico away and he sleeps with Sophia. Later Vanessa calls Angelica, they fight with Sophia and break her car with a baseball stick. Rico ends his affair with Sophia. Brenda meets Nate and Maya and travels in the Travel Town train. Sarge calls David and they have sex. Celeste has sex with Keith and fires him. Joe comes home unexpectedly and sees Brenda and Nate having sex. The hysterical Ruth is increasing her paranoia with George.

"Coming and Going" is a sexual episode and its title has double meaning, since most of the characters after satisfying their desires leave their partners somehow. The annoying character of Ruth is giving a terrible time to George and I do not know how long he will bear her. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Indo e Vindo" ("Coming and Going")
