Tommy: "Let's all hold hands and say the Serenity Prayer, now that your trashy mother/son BS has ruined yet another interaction among people."
Andrew: (Rejects the entire notion of "serenity," because his ass is just getting started.)
(Gabi visits and appalls the entire street trying to canvas for Renee's ill-advised Spring Fling; there are several zingers typical of this show, like, a joke about Hurricane Katrina, already hilarious of course, only gets funnier in 2011. Like aging, racist cheese.) Actually, this part is funny:
Mitzi: "Are you nuts? In case you haven't heard, our friend across the street, Betty Young, just blew her brains out."
Gabi: "Beth Young."
Mitzi: "Oh, I got her name wrong. How disrespectful. Hope you don't tell that story tomorrow at your party!"
(Gabi comes back to tell Renee that she has horrified the entire Lane, once again, but it's ironic because for once it's not because she is herself insane. Somewhere Juanita is eating her feelings and a family is getting deported and a blind masseur is out of work.)
Renee, verbatim: "Well, they can all go to Hell, we're still having the party."
ibid., verbatim: "...Nobody even liked her!"
ibid., verbatim: "For ten years I've had my Spring Fling the first Sunday of April. Not the second Sunday, not the third, and not when a bunch of wimps decide they're ready to stop moping."
ibid., verbatim: "My social life is not gonna come to a stop just because some Cuckoobird decides to clean her ears with a handgun."
Wilhelmina Slater: (Can finally rest.)
