Ed asks Gavin to leave the room so he can talk to Gavin's mom and lay some of that steamy Ed rap down on her and perhaps get a little nerd mama nookie, if you get my drift. Gavin leaves the room, and Ed tells the Mom that Gavin comes across as a middle-aged stockbroker and not a normal teen. In order for them to stand a chance in court, Gavin has to act like a human being and not an android. Mom says she'll talk to him about it.
Out in the alley, Kenny is SCREAMING at Gavin. "Are you smiling at me," Kenny yells and then gets right in his face: "DON'T YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT SMILING AT ME!" Ed calls off the dogs and asks Kenny what the hell is he trying to do. Kenny says he's trying to scare Gavin straight. Ed says that won't be necessary. Kenny shrugs and walks away.
At Couple Central, Nancy's parents drive up in the driveway. Baby Sara, the worst actor on television directly behind Rob Lowe, is wearing a bird house on her head. Ahhh, it's not a bird house...it's a big-assed toboggan hat. Nancy's dad gets out of the car, pulls some luggage out of the trunk, and hands it to Mike without a word. Mike stares at him. Dad stares at Mike. Brad puts down his pen, flexes his wrist, and enjoys this plotline more than any other plotline offered up in the history of Ed. If the characters stay silent, the notes for the show are a lot easier to read.
In court, Ed is questioning Gavin. Gavin has dropped the "middle-aged stockbroker" facade and is now trying desperately to act like a normal teen. When Ed asks if he saw the "No Trespassing" signs on the property, Gavin says, "Well, you know...like...yeah...you know...like...yeah...I saw them, dude. But we were just...you know...hanging out...yo." This guy is such a hopeless nerd that he can't even act like a normal teen. Ed then tries to demonstrate how the cantapult works, but before he can really demonstrate it, the mechanism goes off and hurls a cantaloupe at a painting on the walls of the courtroom, smacking it off the wall with alarming force. I was shocked that the kid only had his shoulder dislocated and not torn clean off like the beginning of Saving Private Ryan.
