Tommy's gotten a lot more innocent looking since he left the clink, but he still struggles with basic communication in the outside world. "What's new with you," is something you ask your cell mate when you see him at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, but it's not something you ask someone you just met, Tommy. But hang in there, you'll figure it out.
Brandy's response, reminds me of one of my favorite Mary Tyler More scenes, which I've shared here before I think:

For two days, I've struggled to find the words to express my absolute glee that we're going to get another Beedie story. Because if there have ever been characters I've cared about, it's Iris Beedie and her mop-haired twin son, Tommy. And I'm really hopeful that we get another progressively topical subject like the challenges of interracial relationships (like in that recent film, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner). But I'd settle for Tommy harassing a co-worker because Karen Moy handles #MeToo so well, and it would be funnier.

... emersion in nature, exercise, diet, reading good books, art history, yoga, archery, photography, parkour, Latin, Thai cuisine, root vegetable gardening, cartography... Of course, none of these therapies are effective without the endorsement of the AMA and Mary Worth.

Since when have friends helped you over the years, Mary? Do you mean, "Friends haven't helped me for years?" I think the last time someone helped you was when Kathy's mom prayed for you and you felt wanted. Ever since then, you've been fighting to get that feeling back.
