sculpture. Marlee Matlin played Bette's deaf lover Jodi. As usual in Bette's love life, her relationship with Jodi was full of challenges. Direct communication was not one of them, though, as Bette learned sign language quickly and Jodi could read lips and say many words. Once again it was Bette's control freak personality that ruined things. Jodi left to take a job in New York, and Tina helped Bette win Jodi back. Between Tina's advice, Tina's email, and sculpture theft, Bette went to New York to win back her lover. Shane and Alice helped Bette disassemble an iron sculpture that read "17 Reasons Why". Jodi loved that sculpture, and the property manager refused to sell it, so Bette stole it.

I remember hearing it for the first time in the finale, when Tasha invited Alice to her going back to Iraq party. It was hosted by Papi, whose invite had her real name on it, Eva Torres. Papi seemed very concerned about Shane at first, but relaxed when she realized that the "Chart" was the last thing Shane cared about.
