Welcome back! Did you miss me? Of course not. It's only been twelve seconds since the last episode ended. So here we are staring awkwardly at each other because we said good bye but then realized no one was going anywhere for a very long time. It's like when you bid your loved ones so long and farewell and auf wiedersehn and adieu and then your flight gets cancelled. Sighhhhhhhh. I'm still here so let's get this dog-and-pony (I'll let you decide who is who) show started. Let me just find my boater hat and stripey Dick Van Dyke jacket and cane.
Ah, there we go: Nora is cooking up a Fancy Feast for Lily except that Lily is a dog and Fancy Feast is only for cats, which seems cruel when you look at the delicious flavor options available. But of course no canned food is good enough for extra special Lily. No, no, Nora is cooking for her on the stove and talking to her like she thinks she's people. Luckily someone knocks at the door and Nora eagerly looks at the door, excited to have a conversation with someone other than a dog. It's Brody. Come to reclaim his dog a.k.a. Nora's conversation partner. Guess she'll have to go back to talking to the houseplants or that picture of Holly she has set up in the corner, so she can have her girl talk when she wants to and when she wants to use her Angry Voice she hollers at a picture of William Walker when the spirit so moves her. What? You know I'm right. She's just a few Epilady appointments away from Redd Foxx.
So Brody comes in and he looks like, well, like he's been living in a trailer on beef jerky and coffee. Facts he confirms seconds later. Then he sees Lily and his eyes light up, but Nora thinks he is getting all googly eyed over her, but he's not. So then Nora is all humiliated and goes to leave him alone with Lily, the love of his life, but he stops her and grabs her hand and thanks her most sincerely for caring for his high maintenance mutt. I guess she never told him she lost her, eh? Seriously crappy dog sitting, Nora, no matter how many gourmet dinners you make her.
Know what we haven't had yet this episode? A Walker family phone tree! So Kevin and Sarah are talking about the fact that it is Justin's big 3-0 and he has no plans. Seems he blew off his plans for a ski trip with his "friends" because he realized they were imaginary and thus not really worth the cost of lift tickets. Now Kevin has raided (a.k.a. broken into) Justin's apartment and has unearthed a list of items Justin wanted to do before he was 30 back when he was in high school. The list includes things like "make out with hot chicks" and "jump in the Hershey river," which I don't think is a euphemism, but sure as heck sounds like one.
