Over at the emergency vet, Brody is giving Nora the good news that Lily made it though the surgery, they got the tumor, and the doctors assures him that she can live spleen-free for years. Nora is happy to hear the news and graciously waits with Brody for Lily to wake up. Brody takes a moment and then tells Nora that he wasn't trying to take Tommy away from her, but the team really needed a good baseball manager, but instead they are getting Tommy. Nora claims she wants Tommy to be happy since he has been through so much (OF HIS OWN DOING, NORA, sheesh) but she doesn't want him to be so far away. Brody mumbles something reflective about some people not being able to stay in one place. Nora sees this as an opportunity to talk about them. Brody manages not to flinch because, ugh, the "us" talk. Brody tells her that when Sarah came to see him at first he thought that Nora was dead and he was filled with regrets even though he has been pretty happy with his life and would have made her miserable if they had married and he had given up his Big League dreams. Besides, she married the right guy, right? William was Husband of the Year every year, right? Nora gives up the pretense and confesses that William was the Worst. Brody laughs that he never liked William and he likes Nora just as she is, older and wiser. He's only managed half of that. Nora looks contemplative as we fade to a herpes medicine commercial.
Not having enough awkward conversations to fill her days, Nora and Paige sit down over glasses of ladylike tea to discuss Nora's premarital sex. Nora reminds Paige that back in the day it was a very different time and she had to walk uphill both ways to the teen pregnancy clinic. So Paige should learn the lesson of her grandmother who was never lucky enough to carry around a sack of flour for a week and she should not have sex and/or kids ever. Paige tries not to barf during the conversation and finally runs away to her room to journal: I HATE MY FAMILY and dream of running away to Ecuador with the remains of Joaquin forever and ever. Sarah apologizes to Nora for outing her as a slore to her granddaughter and forever tarnishing her reputation in Paige's eyes. Nora shrugs, because she should have told Sarah that she was the result of a shotgun wedding a long time ago. Probably during a dinner party.
