Up in Courtney's bedroom, Courtney's future husband tells her she needs to date his older brother. Because Jack is totally cool and really self-sacrificing and always takes out the trash! Courtney makes this face like she's thinking about how she does really hate to take out the trash. "Jack is really cool. I just don't think it's that simple," Courtney explains. She likes Jack and all, but she doesn't want to date anyone. "My mom died last year and ever since then, it's like nothing really seems all that great anymore," she says sadly. Bobby tells her that his dad left them. "Do you miss your mom?" he asks. "Yeah, every day," Courtney says, her voice breaking. Poor toothy kid. "I miss my tattoo," Bobby tells her. What? Oh, he misses his Dad, too. "Which is weird, because I never met him. So you must really miss your mom." Well, that was rather thoughtful of him. There's a knock at the door: it's Peter, who tells Bobby that his family is downstairs.
Bobby heads downstairs to find Jack waiting for him. Jack is like, way to go. "Is she gonna kill me?" Bobby asks, looking at Grace, who is loitering by the car, trying to make herself smell less like pot. "Not unless she hugs you to death," Jack tells him. "Are you gonna kill me?" Bobby asks. "Not tonight. Maybe tomorrow," Jack smiles, and sends Bobbyoff to the car. Grace hugs Bobby, hard. Sweet moment. Maybe you should stop smoking so much weed, lady. Courtney comes down and talks to Jack for a quick sec. He apologizes for putting the moves on her the other night. "That was lame. You were right," he says. Courtney shakes her head and tells him she'd like to be "there," but she can't. Not yet. Because of Her Dead/Insane Mom. "Maybe if you give me a little time. I'm not saying you should wait for me or anything," Courtney offers. But Jack says "it's cool. I'll be around." They smile at each other, and he joins his family in a group hug. Nice. Whatever. I hate two-thirds of that family anyway.
FUTURE Courtney: "It'd been a while since Bobby suffered a loss like that. But if you thought that it would weaken his resolve, you didn't know my husband. For a day or two, he was defeated, but then..." Then, he started getting letters from the people. The people love Bobby! We all love Bobby! Love Bobby! Love him! "That's how the movement began. That's the irony. The Republican party tried to stamp him out, and in so doing, they created him." You know what? I kinda like this old broad. I still don't buy her as Courtney at all -- physically, they are too way different, including different colored eyes. But she seems sassy. And I appreciate a little sass.
