I Saw What You Did Last Morning

And then Barb gets a taste of her own displacement tactics when Margene turns to her and huffs, "Well, Nicki wouldn't let me use her car and you had yours and so the shopping did not get done!" Then she stomps out and begins prepping the crying kids for the walk back across the yard while Barb stands there all, "The H?" Those poor kids. Three adults around and nobody can spare a second glance at a shrieking toddler? What is the point to multiple spouses if one cannot be bothered to take care of business?

Meanwhile, Frank's coming to in the hospital, and there is Roman, hunched over like a vulture, watching him. Roman intones, "Your health is returning," and then hands over a glass of mystery liquid. He bids Frank to drink up, telling him, "Harlene sent this over. Now, your lips are parched, so take a nice, slow sip." The tone is pure "grandfather," but the whole effect is pure "provided your dad's name is Damien." The camera lingers on the sipping, the better to bolster our suspicions that Roman is poisoning Frank as part of a ploy to suck Bill back into the compound. Then Roman leans on Frank, telling him to get his boy in line. Alby lurks in the background, still shooting for menacing, still missing and landing somewhere in Uncle Fester's territory.

Back at Henrickson's homes plus, Don and the missuses have come over for bridge night. How handy it is to have three spouses -- you automatically have a fourth for games! Sure, nobody's minding the kids, but so long as you've got bridge, who cares?

The womenfolk repair to the kitchen to make bridge mix (blonde wife JoJo: "My goodness! There's pretzels in here!"), and when Nicki asks Margene to get some napkins, the younger woman leans over and asks Barb, "What can I do to help?" Barb mutters vaguely, and then asks Nicki to carry out a tray of hot drinks. Nicki turns to Margene and says, too-brightly, "Marge?" Margene gives her a patently insincere smile, and then heads out to where the menfolk are talking business. Bill is holding forth on the wonders of Wal-Mart's supply-chain management. Margene serves, and both men take a moment for a leer. Without tearing his eyes away from her neckline, Don asks Margene what color her dress is, and she's caught off-guard: "Just blue, I guess." Bill ever-so-subtly lifts his leg and marks his territory by asserting, "That's pale blue, Margie." She gulps, "I think they call it aqua? Or, um, turquoise?" Don tells her that the color suits her, and Margene pulls it together enough to say, "It'd be a nice color for a car." Oooh -- I can't decide if she's really as immature as she acts or if it's a put-on so that she can fend for herself. Bill and Don decides that, no, aqua isn't a good color for a car, and Margene silently flounces off.
