Dinner. Patrick compliments his mother on the meal, I guess because she neither killed the animals nor had anything to do with their preparation. In fact, she may be the only person in the room who didn't have anything at all to do with the dinner, so the only assumption I can make is that Patrick is being super-duper ironic. Simon declines to eat the quail, saying that he is all for sport shooting but he's actually a vegetarian. Which, seeing as I skin live mink to pass the time while watching television but I wouldn't wear fur, makes absolute sense to me. I just find their little squeals so very relaxing. Karen notes to Simon, "But that's all the yummy stuff...do you eat anything yummy?" Wow. Way to blow the integrity of Project Get The Man I Love to smithereens in one simple line.
Letitia tells Lisa she should accompany her to the house's art collection after dinner, and Lisa says that would be nice. Tripp then asks Letitia in Italian what she's doing, and Letitia answers, in Italian, "Niente." Also, as you might have assumed, Italian for "nothing." And, I don't know, Lisa seems like a pretty smart cookie. One would assume that she, a worldly art lover, would know as much Italian as I learned on my first day of intro college Italian. That exchange reminded me a little of the scene in High Anxiety in which Harvey Korman speaks in code by using Pig Latin ("Oo-yay oh-nay ut-way oo-tay oo-day.") and no one is ever the wiser.
