439: Thinking Ahead
Title text: Did he just go crazy and jump out the window?
Cueball spots a woman while shopping. He thinks she looks cute - probably because she looks a lot like his girlfriend Megan. She is picking out produce, and quotes a line of dialogue from Firefly originally said by River Tam (Summer Glau): "My food is problematic." Cueball (Randall) who is a big fan of Firefly, notices this, and wants to flirt with her. But then Cueball's internal monologue kicks in and he starts panicking, wondering how he'd deal with starting a relationship with this woman when he's moving in the fall, as well as how things are going to work out with Megan, should things work out with this girl. He panics, needs a way out, and jumps out the window.
In real life, jumping out the window would be a very bad idea. See this for more details.

- Cueball: She's cute.
- Woman: This food is problematic.
- Cueball: Oh man, she's quoting Firefly.
- Cueball: It's the perfect opening. But wait. I'm moving in the fall. If we hit it off, how will I deal with that?
- Cueball: I don't want to ask her to derail her plans. And with things unresolved with Megan, can I really commit enough to make that kind of decision?
- Cueball: Oh God.
- Cueball: Gotta get out.
- Cueball: The window.

- Randall did mention the name Megan in his original transcript.
- Autodefenestration is the act of jumping out of a window, so Cueball could be said to be Autodefenestrating.
