At the Walker Manse, Saul remarks to Nora, "I was very surprised that you had time for lunch." Me too -- I figured she's be at an AARP rally or down at the Social Security office, or doing whatever else old people that aren't allowed to have storylines on this show do. Saul mentions Isaac, and recalls that when Nora first met William, he didn't see her for months. Nora confesses that Isaac's schedule is forcing them to take things slow, and then Saul giggles at the idea of telling Ida about Nora's new boyfriend. Given the way Saul's subplot in this episode points, I think they should both tell Ida about the other's boyfriend, and not offscreen NO SHOW I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN THAT YOU GYPPED US OUT OF MARION ROSS AT THE WEDDING WHAT WERE YOU THINKING. Nora then sits down and gives a P-FLAG-approved speech about how she loves and accepts Saul, but Saul, as usual, doesn't volunteer any information. He is so no fun.
Ugh. Rebecca shows up to see David, as apparently they're going on a photography excursion or something. He tells her to shoot manual instead of automatic, and that's about it for the scene.
Sarah finishes up an angry phone call and slams the receiver down as Kevin asks her if she thinks he's uptight. Sarah: "Kevin, I'm not in the mood for one of your neurotic freak-outs." Sarah, you have met your brother, right? I suggest you get in the mood. She pours herself some wine as he asks what's up with her, and she tells him that Joe is taking "Paula" to Paris for her birthday, which is the present that she had requested from Joe. Well, okay, but...you don't still want to go with him, do you? Kevin: "Did you get the divorce papers I sent you?" Thank you for repeating my sentiment without the tact, Kevin. No, seriously, that was awesome. Sarah changes the subject and says they should go out. He's reticent (Sarah: "That's because you're uptight," and hee) but she tells him, "Come on, Kevin, we're Walkers. Let's go do what Walkers do best." Kevin and everyone tuned to ABC on Sunday night: "Get drunk?" Sarah's face: "Bingo!" Kevin gives in, but says he gets to pick the place.
Travis tells Robert how psyched he is about all the local press coverage they're getting, and also gives Kitty credit for the idea of bringing the kids. Robert, however, tells him that he's going to see the Governor that night, and although Travis only makes a mild comment about the lateness of the appointment, the look on Robert's face lets us know that he's not thrilled about the cloak-and-dagger nature of this development. Jason then appears and updates Robert that the kids both have the flu, but their fevers are dropping, and Kitty's got things under control. Robert goes off to get a little sleep himself, but not before ordering Travis to put Jason to work. Jason picks up a paper about a women's Baptist group, and says that'll be a piece of cake for him -- "all I need is the collar, the smile." The man makes a lot of sense. Jason goes on that the last time he campaigned for Robert, he learned how to quilt, but Travis decides to speak frankly, and says that they're in the Midwest now, not California, and if Jason wants Robert to win, he's going to have to lie low. Jason, confused and a little hurt, asks if Travis wants to run that by Robert, but Travis admits that Robert wouldn't want to hear it. "But he's willing to make concessions in order to win, like hiring Isaac." Jason still hasn't put it together, so Travis goes on that Jason really has the forgiveness thing down. "I'd want to kill the man who outed me." Jason, thoroughly shocked: "Isaac outed me?" God, how I wish Viva Laughlin! had never happened.
