George Lafferty and Nora are decorating cupcakes and talking about siblings. George is struck by the fact that Ryan has five half-siblings and he has no idea! That's not the way life is supposed to work. Your parents get old and die (cheery guy this George), but your siblings should always be there for you. Nora agrees. Her kids may fight, but they always have each other. George wishes he could just meet her kids so he could decide whether they are suitable playmates for Ryan or something. He wishes he had a playgroup or a crystal ball. At the mention of the magical item, Nora gets an idea. She invites George to Tommy's party. George isn't sure. If he changes his mind about telling Ryan, everyone will already know about it. Nora suggests that he come under a pseudonym. Kitty is the only one who has met him and she is not going to be there. Since none of the others know what he looks like, he should just come up with a fake name, and some plausible back story. Then no one will ask about the strange man that Nora brought to the party! Right? Right! Nora and George banter about fake names. Their chemistry is nice and light, even if their logic is totally flawed.
Justin stands outside Rebecca's door and rings the bell. Repeatedly. Since Rebecca is running around getting ready for the party, she just shouts for Justin to use his key already. Justin is apparently feeling passive aggressive because he jerkily replies, "I thought you didn't want me to use it." Rebecca shoots him a withering glance, which he totally deserves. She asks him if this attitude is about this morning, because if it is, she's sorry. He scared her and she wasn't prepared for his use of the L word. Now that Justin got his moment, she just needs to find hers. Justin begs her not explain any more and I can understand that he is embarrassed, but he is also sort of a creepy stalker and needs to try and wrap his head around that and maybe apologize to Rebecca for scaring her. Rebecca grabs her purse off the table and stomps off to the car. She is so not in the mood for an anniversary party. These two are both being so immature, I can't stand it. Just get over your squabble already! You are both right and wrong and it cancels each other out. So get over it! You know they are not going to get over it. Sigh.
The Senator is hard at work in his office. Kitty knocks on the door and The Senator is surprised to see her because he thought they were meeting at the restaurant. Kitty says that Kima cancelled dinner. Actually, she cancelled the whole adoption. As The Senator sputters in confusion, Kitty pours herself a drink. Which is definitely a perk of being an adoptive mother -- no need to stop drinking while waiting for the baby! Kitty explains that even though The Senator loved Kima, Kitty had doubts. She confesses that she went to the hospital and talked to Kima and the second Kitty questioned her, Kima bailed on the adoption. You know, when Kitty puts it that way, you almost see her point. The Senator is shocked. What did Kitty say to her? Kitty claims she just said that she was a career woman and wanted to make sure she fully appreciated what it would mean to give up a baby at her age. The Senator crosses his eyes, shakes his head, and begs Kitty to tell him that she didn't ask her about her age. Kitty won't hear it. She did what she could to prevent them from getting their hearts broken. The Senator looks sad, but nastily chides Kitty that if she's not ready to have her heart broken, she's not ready to be a parent. Kitty looks like she was hit by a truck. The Senator tells her she doesn't have to walk away, but she disagrees. The Senator was mean, but Kitty couldn't expect him to have been thrilled that she ticked off the birth mother with all her crazy.
