her devotion and loyalty to Mr. Carpenter. I can imagine the closer they get
to their goal, the more likely she'll have a nervous breakdown.

politeness that says I don't care for you at all, but I'm too polite to be
mean to you about it. I get that way with customers a lot. It could also be
that he's discovering his emotions. They treat him like a pet, not a human
being and until he met Anita, he didn't know any better. Or he could be just
well be on his way to becoming a loon. I'll comment more after episode 14.

creepy, Junior's becoming creepy, hmm, could be. Yeah, it does explain why
Carpenter is not fatherly, towards Junior, but he's also affectionate
towards Wendy too, and it just could be, "You're beneath me, but I'm too
proper to be openly contemptuous of you." At this point, I think whatever
relationships Carpenter has are just a means to an end. But, really I wish
there were more episodes out, so we could just find out already.
