And of course his wife cheated on him, but put it out that he cheated, because she could get a better divorce settlement that way, and she knew he wouldn't fight back -- it would hurt the kids. Of...course. Always the victim, always the honorable one in any situation. Not that I'd advise a friend of mine any differently with regard to the kids in that situation, but a friend of mine would have, you know, some nuance; the light from this guy's halo is just relentless. Robert McCallister: Too Good For This World. He says he needs someone on his staff who can help him deal with that sort of "gossip and innuendo"; the plaintive piano on the soundtrack lets us know that he thinks Kitty is that someone...and that Kitty is starting to think so too.
In conclusion: barf.
Holly's winding up her presentation by talking about how she knew that William "felt very strongly" that Ojai should get into the wine-making business, so she hopes the board will respect that. Tommy looks glum; Sarah is trying not to giggle. Nora is simmering. Saul once again tries to end the meeting, but nobody's getting off that easy; Nora would also like to address the board. The Piccolo Of This Is Going To Be A Disaaaaaaaster tweetles as Sarah covers her face with her hand. Nora begins that she and William "also talked of many, many things, when we were married"; Holly regards her with an amused smirk as Nora continues that she'd like to share some of those thoughts with the board...and then there is a looooong pause as Nora wracks her brain for something, anything that's relevant. This is what she comes up with: "...Oh! It was on Oprah, there's this avocado, they've taken the...fat out of it, it's, it's a..." Tommy prays for a trapdoor to open beneath him. Nora: "Slim-cado! Slim-cado, it's a slim...cado, and it's very very good." Kevin glances back and forth between Nora and Holly as Nora concludes that the slim-cado "would be a gold mine" for Ojai and they should "consider seriously investing in it."
In the hall, Tommy's like, didn't I tell you to shut it? Nora's all, yeah yeah, you didn't want me to embarrass you, but Tommy's like, it's not just that: "Holly being here is the price of keeping this place afloat." He tells Nora she's just making things worse. She's dismayed as Tommy stomps away.
Joe comes in from a run, asking if he's late for the Justin therapy thing. Why is he even going? What, they need someone to smooch the 20-year-old patients while Sarah's busy with something else? I know it's supposed to be the whole family, but in-laws too? Whatever. Sarah's reading a book about addiction, and spotting the early signs, and when Joe makes a joke about being ten years too late, Sarah sighs that she screwed up with Gabe.
