Elena learned "TTYL" from Sophie, her 7-year-old daughter, who learned it from Elena's mother.
Danny: "Some people hit baseballs, we find missing people, this guy eats. Everybody has a talent."
Ah, here we get the reveal about Danny's history with Elena. Was friends with Carlos, her ex. I recall some of the stuff last summer about Danny and Elena's history mentioning something about a wedding or something, so that makes sense. (I was also beginning to wonder where the father of Elena's child was.)
I wish that my Spanish was good enough that I could catch what he (Danny, mostly) was saying.
I dislike that they've built up Danny's sexual interest in Elena 'cause it taints him here. Like, I believe that he's altruistic, but a recent viewer would think he was lying to Carlos.

Viv was Bailey-esque awesome with "We already told you: that's not for you to decide."
Barry's mom was a prostitute (and an alcoholic -- do we think Barry knew something was up and dumped the bottle? I'm guessing no, but still) and offered them food as shutup/comfort.
Oh, and here Danny breaks the "I'm not taking sides" and is all over Elena. Bah. Largely I just don't feel the chemistry at all.
