Interesting point. And reflect also on the "good girl" image/"bad girl" image
duality between the two. I say image because I think Audrey is less corrupt
than Donna. Note that in tonight's episode (5/10) Jacobi said that "Laura
liked to corrupt people because that was how she viewed herself". And Donna
and James are "closer to her than anyone".

Another fun touch from the 5/3 Audrey/Donna bathroom scene: did anyone 
notice the "heartbeat" pattern on the bathroom walls? It may not be 
significant, but it was amusing.

What relevance does James' family life have to do with the series? I have a 
couple of theories:

(1) None whatsoever, but it provided a nice lead-in to "we'll never have any
secrets from each other". I don't think Donna will keep up her end of the
bargain...

(2) Maybe Blackie is James' mother? I like this one the more I think about it.

"Diane, it's 11:00 pm on Wednesday. I've just returned to my room at the
 Great Northern Inn to discover a nude Audrey Horne beneath the sheets of my
 bed. Further updates as events warrant."

Well, she IS eighteen, after all...;-)
