Over at Walker Manor, Brody has done the Triple S (shit, shower, and shave) and is finally clean enough to be allowed in Nora's kitchen. He invites her to a movie, but she is too busy planning Justin's birthday and Sarah's wedding to go live her life. Brody is about to talk her into living a little when the phone rings. It's Ida. Nora sighs and remembers she was supposed to go visit her. She answers and then goes very quiet and polite with a clipped stream of: "Oh really?" and "I see" and "all right" and finally "I'll call you back". She turns to Brody: "She died. My mother died." Let the waterworks commence.
Sarah and Luc's house has been overtaken by the wedding fairy and is a torrent of crystal and cake samples and synthetic swans. Sarah is not pleased to see the house in such disarray when there is a funeral to plan. She scowls at the synthetic swan and Luc shakes his head sadly. Kevin is doing his part to tidy up by eating all the cake. Sarah shakes it off and breaks the bad news that the show is still suffering from budgetary restraints and they can't actually afford to have all the Walker children on the show, so Kitty and Tommy will not be making Grandma Ida's funeral. Kitty's "excuse" is that she is in Boston with Seth, which sounds incredibly lame. So lame that Sarah and Kevin both say, "LAME." And, Tommy is dead to them all as he is preparing a Charlie Sheen-style traveling circus. Not really, but seriously Balthazar Getty can't be that far from such a low. Sarah asks Kevin to stop grazing for a second to mourn appropriately, but he can't stop, won't stop, because Ida never liked him and he never liked her. Everyone yells at him about that, but he just shrugs because it is true. Sarah says Nora wants everyone to speak at the funeral and someone has to clean out Ida's room at the nursing home and now she has to go back to work. She says something snide about the swan and Luc barks that he gets it, she doesn't like the swan. What, swans were good enough for Louis XIV, but not good enough for the Princess of Pasadena?
