    Summary

    “Besides, Bobby says-”

    “Wait? Bobby?” Lenny sits up straight. “You call him Bobby?!”

    “He calls me Midge.” She says it like this’s nothing at all. “Miriam and Robert is a bit of a mouthful.

    “Mrs. Maisel, do I need to be concerned?” Lenny’s half joking, half feeling a strong possessiveness towards a woman who’s technically never been his girlfriend. “Because I have heard some stories.”

    Midge both sighs and laughs. “God, you’re almost as bad as Joel.”
    ***
    California, 1968. Midge is a "Campaigning Comedian" for a certain senator. Lenny is staying sober and trying to write a book. A chance to reconnect accidentally corresponds with a tragic night at a Los Angeles hotel.

    Summary

    It was in the middle of the night when Archie hit the breaking point, when his brain finally had enough of cramping his legs against the cold metal railing of Ethan's foot-board, of his neck aching and of the mattress that was just barely thin enough to carry a small boy.

    “Joel? Can I come over to your bed?"

    In canon, Archie stays over at Joel's room in the factory for a while. He only sleeps on Ethan's bed or the floor, but there only a certain amount of cramped legs and neck-pain someone can take…

    Summary

    "So, what it is, is a list," Imogene had explained, standing in the center of the room like she was a schoolteacher. "But not a boring list. It's a really, really fun list, and an important one too. It's a list of five men - or people - that, if you met them in the street, or out shopping, or wherever, you could get to sleep with them and it would be totally fine. Like a freebie. And who doesn't like a freebie?"
