In the kitchen Saul is busily boring Justin with a long-winded oratory on the cover story of a knock off Architectural Digest. When he wraps up his soliloquy, Justin blinks a few times to shake off the glazed look and asks why such a prestigious architect is bothering to help Nora fix up the Nora McDonald House? Good question, Justin! Nora balks at the insinuation that her project is beneath anyone, but Justin (and everyone else) ignores her. Nora keeps talking about her valuable contribution to society until she realizes that no one is paying attention. So she changes the subject to Justin's upcoming star turn as Cooper's show-and-tell guest. He's the person Cooper admires most! Nora pats her little soldier on the back as he heads off to first grade. Saul seizes the opportunity to bore a new audience and prattles to Nora about his new favorite architect. Didn't they just have this conversation? Didn't she just say that an illustrious architect would die to design her charitable operation? Whatever. Saul tries to sell her on the idea of having this hot new architect design the Nora McDonald House, but when she realizes it is the same man who designed an old Ojai building, she refuses to listen. Saul is stymied by her refusal, but she is firm. Kitty interrupts the discussion to demand an orange popsicle for Kevin. She has been screaming into the baby monitor and can NOT believe that Nora didn't hear her. Kevin needs an orange popsicle NOW! Sometimes I have to stop and wonder: what is wrong with the Walkers? Would Kitty really spend five minutes screaming into a baby monitor for Nora to come give Kevin a popsicle instead of just getting the popsicle herself? Saul apologizes for turning off the static-y monitor while Nora glares at him and switches the monitor back on. With the monitor on everyone can tell that The Senator is talking business, which is strictly verboten. Kitty storms upstairs and demands that The Senator step away from the patient. The Senator apologizes, but he needs advice. Seriously? There is no one else to ask? Like your old pal Google? Or any other members of your staff? Or YOUR WIFE? To get The Senator to leave Kevin alone to recuperate, Kitty agrees to step into Kevin's role temporarily. This despite her book tour and upcoming appearance on The View, which I can't believe they bothered to name check. Does this show have the same audience? Or were they trying to remind this demographic that the show exists? Anyway, Kitty agrees to be Kevin for the duration. I'm sure we all know how that will go.
