Over at Casa KimberBree, the lady of the house is wearing a nightgown very similar to one my own mother has -- which is very motherly in that it has wide old straps and no waist and is 100% cotton and I admit I have one of these myself but I wear it only when it's five thousand degrees out and I'm home alone. KimberBree's playing solitaire and drinking a glass of wine. Rex comes home. He must have been at Maisy's for ages! "Why are you up?" he asks. KimberBree smiles that she could ask him the same question, and he snaps that he's going to bed and that he didn't ask her to wait up for him. Dude, you could at least be civil to her. You're the one who moved back in to help with the kids. I really don't think being a total asshole to their mother is going to help. KimberBree sniffs at his coat. "Were you with a woman?" she asks. Rex doesn't say anything. "Did you tell her you have a wife, or does that hinder your pickup style?" she asks, sounding reasonably peevish. Rex -- who is still wearing his wedding ring -- says that he has every right to see someone else: "Exploring options is the whole point of being separated." KimberBree sniffs that she's "not a mutual fund," but Rex suggests that she go out there and meet someone too. "I am just trying to move on with my life! It is nothing to be ashamed of!" he insists. Well, no. Except for how you're "moving on" by going to a whore. That might be something to be a leeeetle ashamed of. KimberBree gets all irritable and suggests that Rex call up "his mystery woman," and invite her over so KimberBree can "pull out the sofa bed and [Rex] can take [the mystery woman] right there!" KimberBree slides open the dining-room door and calls upstairs, very bitterly, "Andrew, Danielle! Daddy's gonna fornicate for us!" Rex snaps at her to keep it down. Staring. "Why, are you feeling ashamed?" she asks, pushing past him with her glass of wine and stomping us right into the ads. Very well-acted scene from both of them. Much as I love love love Gay Matt, I suspect that Stephen Culp is the only man on this show who can go toe to toe with La Cross.
After the break, we open with Edie knocking on Mrs. Kravitz's door. Days' worth of newspapers have piled up on her lawn. I feel like Mrs. Kravitz is someone who would have stopped the paper, even if she were just going to her sister's for a few days. But never mind that. MAVO explains that Edie was starting to worry: "Edie didn't like worrying. She felt it gave her wrinkles." Thank God she's got that "buy nine, get one free" Botox card. "So out of concern for her face? And [Mrs. Kravitz]? Edie decided to find out what? Was going on," MAVO sing-songs.
