Robert and Kitty have arrived at their destination, and Kitty asks Robert if it's ever occurred to him that some of the people in his office might not want to be part of the Presidential race. I'm no politician, but if I'd think the least of a Presidential hopeful's worries would be attracting willing staff. Kitty's point, though, is that maybe she doesn't want to be part of that, and Robert says some very nice things about her abilities that mask the underlying "Give me a break here; we both know you'd step over your own mother to be a White House staffer" sentiment. Hey, he's good. Kitty opines that Robert won't get the nomination, but he's unfazed, and then the billionaire, "Michael Pellington," (played by Hey! It's That Guy! D.W. Moffett) enters, and Robert introduces him; he thinks he's way more charming than he is, and Kitty's fake smile agrees with me.
So Kevin and Chad are finishing getting dressed, and we're not in a locker room. Although that might not have stopped them. Kevin says that even his ulcer his having an anxiety attack from the stress of sneaking around, and also, Chad is never going to want more than what they have, and he's always going to. Chad chooses the wrong tack here, saying that he's not making Kevin stay, but then pulls his feet out of the fire by giving Kevin a Valentine's Day present, "to make up for dragging you into the closet with me for this long." It's a really cool and funky-looking black watch that I wish I could see better, and while Kevin double-meanings that it's too much, Chad somberly disagrees, and then asks him to please come to the party, as while they can't be together that night, he still wants to see him. Honestly, I understand the sentiment, and we all know Chad's working up to something here, but the evening can only end up being miserable with a capital M from Kevin's perspective, so they'd really be better off just making a hot date for the fifteenth. Nonetheless, Kevin looks happy, because he can be awfully dumb.
Nora and Justin are packing? unpacking? some boxes, and Nora conveniently comes across a picture of Justin and Tyler; she talks about how lovely Tyler is, forcing Justin to tell her the news about Tyler seeing someone else. Nora basically counsels Justin to stalk Tyler, which he calls her on explicitly, but she does make her suggestion seem an awful lot more attractive when she suggests the two of them go out to dinner as an alternative. Sarah then calls, greeting Justin with a "Hey, snotface!" Justin realizes that Sarah only uses that moniker when she wants something, and I'd be interested to know what she normally calls him that makes "Snotface" look solicitous by comparison. Sarah takes an eon to ask Justin to babysit that night, but, happy for any opportunity to get out of dinner with Nora, Justin accepts so quickly that it actually happened way back in Episode 6. He gives Nora a quick explanation and runs out the door, leaving Nora to tell the air that she could babysit. I don't think the episode actually wants you to notice, but it does seem a little cruel that Justin is ditching Nora on her first Valentine's Day as a widow. Especially given that he didn't even finish with the damned boxes.
