Orange is the New Black season 2 episode 6 “You Also Have A Pizza” RECAP:
It’s Valentine’s Day at the prison. Sister says love is light and acceptance. Sophia says it’s horrible pain that you want again and again. Lorna says she has so much to say about love. The kitchen girls cook heart shaped cookies. Flaca says she hopes Ian will visit. Maritza talks about romance. Maria says one year, Yadriel stole flowers from his cousin’s funeral for her and says it was sweet. Gloria says it’s a holiday invented to make people feel like shit.
Fischer is there and says it must be hard being locked up on Valentines. One of the girl offers her a cookie and she takes it but is horrified to see that it’s shaped like a dick. Bennett walks up and Fischer panics and shoves the cookie in her mouth (hilarity) and almost chokes herself (more hilarity). One of the kitchen girls quips that she knew she didn’t swallow.
Bennett looks at Daya and walks over. She asks where he made dinner reservations for them and says she’s trying to pretend they’re normal. She tells him her dress is sexy but not slutty and he says he can’t wait to see it. Aleida sends Daya to get more flour and hands Bennett a list and tells him it’s stuff she wants.
The ghetto girls are soaping up in the sinks because of the 30 second shower limits. Taystee doesn’t want to join custodial – she likes the library and tells Vee no. Vee says it would have been easier for her to leave her in the foster home with the fucked up foster dad.
Jimmy wanders in and says she’s looking for Jack because he buys her chocolates every year. She says he treats his ducky right. Vee says to kill her in her sleep if she ever gets like that. She tells Taystee to do what she says. Poussey says V Day is just about chilling with someone, making jokes and staying up so you don’t have to be without them.
On an Army base in Germany, we see Poussey rolling a joint with friends. She speaks German and her girlfriend kisses her. A friend of hers comes up and complains about Army. She kisses her GF and he asks how you say in German that he wants to watch her and her GF get it on. She says “nein.” She’s an Army brat at an international station somewhere.
Watson complains to Suzanne that she hates custodial and thinks it’s bullshit that Vee forced them to be there. Suzanne holds up a mop and speaks in a very nice British accent saying that she needs to back off. Then Suzanne tells the mop that Watson has the right to express her opinion about her new job. They continue a debate as the other girls come in laughing.
Boo tells Watson she looks tired and offers to come by later and give her a massage. Boo says she wants a piece of whatever they have going on. She tells Watson that tomorrow she’s going to put the V in her valentine. Watson double birds her and Boo says, that’s right, fuck me.
Black Cindy asks Suzanne who her Valentine is going to be with her crazy eyes and she says someone who deserves her, which is her. Her British mop calls her a loser. Cindy says this is depressing. Watson spills water on herself and Cindy says she pissed herself and says she’ll go find her a diaper.
Piper comes to sit with Larry and says tomorrow is Florence Henderson’s birthday which they always celebrated instead of V Day. She jokes and he takes it to a serious level and says he heard about her grandma. She says she wants her home when she gets out. She says she wants to come home. He says that’s quite the statement and asks if she’s sure. She says she is. Larry says he’s asking future, free Piper, not her and asks if she will. Future Piper says she hopes so. He says present Larry can’t live on hope.
Larry says there’s a reporter from the City Post – Andrew – asked him about financial irregularities at the prison and he says he thinks he could write about it with her investigated for him from the inside. Piper freaks and says he’s doing it again. He says they can expose it – she tells him to stop being the moon and he asks what’s wrong with that and she says it doesn’t have its own light. He asks if she’s the sun and he’s just a crap rock.
He tells her she can move on, fuck Alex or whoever and he’s stuck with her sweaters, shoes and Sephora products. He’s angry and says it’s like living in a sarcophagus. She tells him to take her stuff to Polly’s and says he means mausoleum. He gets angry and says not to say what he means. He tells her that at least you can walk on the moon – he says you burn up if you get too close to the sun.
Red works in the greenhouse and says that Vee doesn’t change. She tells her son to hurry. He’s down in the hidey hole welding. He’s sad about his lover leaving and she tells Vasily that he probably deserved it. Jimmy wanders in looking for Jack and she sends her off. He finally cuts through the manhole cover that was under the floorboards and hands her up a bag of stuff.
Piper asks Nicky what she imagines going home to once she gets out. Piper says she thought it would be Larry but maybe not. Nicky says she can help her forget what day it is and Piper says she’s not interested in being a shockingly low valued prize in her sex game. Piper laments that she lost her hot psychopath ex and her sweet confused fiancee both. She says she doesn’t have a home anymore.
The electrical box sparks and Nicky says she does and it’s this shit hole. She tells Piper that Larry is on the right track because they never spend money in here and says this is the third time she’s worked on this electrical box.
Fischer tells Joe the phone calls are amazing. She plays an anal sex call and says it’s like reading Dickens. Joe tells her maybe it will help Fig get off his ass. He says Fig asked him to implement a shot quota. She says it’s nice that he stands up to her. He asks how it’s going with that guy and she says it’s not because he wore too many vests. Joe nervously asks her to come see his band tomorrow night.
She says she has to work the Valentine’s party and he says he can get her off, then hastily changes that to get her off the shift. She agrees to see him there.
Leanne says she had a thing with her boss at Long John Silver’s and says that his wife was wicked hot and that was nice.
Poussey reads Louis Carroll to Taystee and they talk about Alice in Wonderland.

Taystee says she owes Vee and offers to get Poussey transferred, but she says she’s got it good there.
We see Poussey and her GF bumping clams back in the day. Poussey told her that scissoring wasn’t a thing and they lie down side by side cuddling in the girl’s bedroom. Poussey talks about love with her in German. They kiss. The door opens and the girl’s German officer father comes in and stares at them horrified.
Bennett tucks his sock up where it looks like he’s hiding contraband. He hears rattling as he walks and shakes his leg. He looks around worried then heads in jingling his keys to cover the sound. Eliqua tries to sneak in an e-cig and the guard sends her out with it. He stops Bennett and says pat downs are now mandatory. He stops at his knees and then says he’s just kidding and says he doesn’t want to touch his peg leg.
The kitchen girls decorate the cookies and Flaca ices one that says Ian in case he shows up. Bennett walks in and Aleida grabs the stuff he brought and says she’s so glad they’re family. He smiles at Daya and she comes over with a cookie for him. He asks if Daya cooked up something special because the house smells great. She snaps and says she won’t be a little housewife and asks if that’s what he expects. She says she doesn’t want to play the normal game anymore because she doesn’t think they’ll ever be normal.

Bennett asks why they’re asking him about love and says you shouldn’t be talking to me. They take inventory in the commissary and the guard leaves. Poussey walks up and Vee comes out to talk to her. She asks if she’s upset about Taystee getting transferred out and Poussey says if you get her in trouble, I’ll kill you. She says she knows Taystee thinks she owes her but Vee is just a bully that uses lost kids and then dumps them. She calls her a vampire.
Vee talks about a guy that she was hot for when she was younger. She says she saw him with his hands up another girl’s skirt. Vee tells her that Taystee will never love her. Never. Not the way she wants. Poussey laughs and says she doesn’t want her like that and is just looking out for her. She walks off looking hurt thought. We see her back in the day smoking out her window. Her dad comes in and she says there was some soldiers smoking outside.

She says this is their home and they need to be communicating more and says this could really help us get to know each other and this place better. She says, with your approval of course, Mr Editor in Chief. He tells her not to oversell it. Healy thinks. He says he’s not saying yes and tells her to show him some sample stories by tomorrow. He says the girls used to like me and Piper says they will again.
Vee comes to check on the girls in custodial and asks why Taystee is pouting. Vee says her methods will be clear soon. Taystee says she doesn’t believe in her and says she doesn’t have a plan. She tells Taystee to open a box. She does and we see cleaning supplies. There’s a false bottom and out falls tobacco. They are stunned. Suzanne stops staring at the wedding invitation Lorna stole from Christopher then threw away and comes to check out the contraband.
Piper has a Valentine from Alex in her mail call. She throws it into the trash unopened.
Flaca and Maritza talk about love. They say it’s like a warm chocolate bath with the Smiths playing, warm lighting and guys giving you lots of attention and then there’s a pizza, there’s also a pizza. At the Valentine’s party, Flaca shares some hootch and they agree it’s pretty good. Healy and Bennett hang out and he’s angry that Joe and Fischer are both off and they’re stuck there. He thinks it’s a security risk.

Bennett buckles up and tells Daya that was unexpected. She tells him he’s sweet and hands him a piece of paper. He opens it and it’s a sketch of them on a sofa with a dog.
