Well, she was until Nora came and tried to talk to her. Kitty makes a quick exit for the bar leaving The Senator to make her apologies to Nora. He thinks Kitty is just feeling vulnerable about her stupidity and pig headedness. Nora smiles bleakly as The Senator leaves her to follow Kitty. Nora doesn't have long to pout though, because Dr. Motorcycle swoops in and charms her by letting her bore him with more adorable stories of her pesky kids. He also gets her a glass of wine, which is clearly the way to any Walker's heart. Justin and Rebecca survey the scene. Does Nora know this man? Is Nora dating this man? Justin is about to go tackle him for disrespecting his mother when a plate of shrimp goes by and -- ooh shrimp! Rebecca, however, thinks it smells funny and passes. Oh Rebecca, the shrimp smells funny? Really? OH MY GOD. She is obviously pregnant and Dr. Justin is too busy diagnosing rickets to realize that he forgot to wear a Trojan about two months ago. I really hate it when television shows (and movies, too) use these clichéd shortcuts to telling a story. Like, sure, in real life, some pregnant women find shrimp abhorrent, but on television EVERY SINGLE ONE DOES. And this is ALWAYS the way people reveal their knocked up status. It's just lazy. When I was pregnant, I lost my sweet tooth, but that would not make compelling television. So Rebecca wants to ralph at the thought of shrimp. We get it. Nora introduces Dr. Motorcycle to Justin and Rebecca from a distance and everyone smiles and waves. Dr. Motorcycle wants to know when Nora will go on a second date with him. Nora is shocked that he considered that impromptu motorcycle ride a date. There were no flowers, no dancing, he didn't come in and meet her dad, nothing! He swears it was a date and wants to do it again, but he won't take no for an answer until Nora drinks at least one glass of wine. As soon as he leaves, Justin and Rebecca pounce. Justin listens intently trying to figure out whether he needs to cut a guy. Nora brushes it off as just a little motorcycle ride and Justin's and Rebecca's jaws drop. And I will admit the idea of Nora on the back of a hog is pretty hard to picture. Sarah interrupts the tsunami of teasing headed Nora's way because she wants to talk about Kitty and the cold shoulder, which would kind of be an awesome band name. Nora sighs and repeats what Dr. Motorcycle told her during their date, that Kitty just needs to go through this thing and they should let her. But if Kitty won't talk to Sarah or her mom, why the heck did she come to the benefit? Inquiring minds want to know!
