But yeah, this can't be helping her feel better, considering she already thinks Penny brainwashes her objects of affection.
I actually like the idea that Penny seems to relish making her uncomfortable. I think that's the real point of this one.
I still don't get what's so "settled". There wasn't a smooth segue from yesterday's conversation to today's unless I'm being obtuse.
Aggie was talking about her film in the last one, Penny was like 'I'll support you in your film even if you don't bang me' at the top of this one and Aggie became extremely uncomfortable when the sexings were mentioned/implied and was like 'UH YEAH OKAY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP CHANGE OF SUBJECT NOW PLEASE' which lead directly into Penny's 'appealing image'.
On a personal note, I am really loving this side of Penny. I just finished an archive binge (trying to find previous mention of Aggie's film - I did not), and she came off as much more of a bitch than I had previously thought of her being. It's good to see her being human, even if she is being a dick to Aggie (but it's okay because it's the socially-acceptable lewd kind of dick, everyone knows at least one of those [If you don't, that means you probably are the dick of your social circle]). I agree with you in that she's mostly trying to make Aggie uncomfortable with all her lewdness, but I think this WILL lead into a discussion of Aggie's fear of Penny 'changing her' (as if no one leaves a relationship entirely unchanged for the experience. Ha!) at best, or at worst into a quiet internal confirmation of said fear.
But Aggie was never any good at internalizing emotions and feelings ("Worse than Hitler!", when she blabbed to the fed about Brandi branding Xena, and during the play when she has to count to one hundred to stop from making another scene 'twixt her and Penny before still shouting out an insult to Penny's long-departed image are some examples that come to mind. I'm sure there are plenty more to be found). So I don't think this worst case internalization will happen.
But good lord, I am dying to see Monday's continuation of this delicious dialogue.
