Helen's straightening up in the dining room when Judith comes downstairs and tells her, "The fairy godmother has completed her job." She says she's going home, and thanks Helen, who comes over to give her a hug. I guess all that stealing from the homeless stuff has been forgiven. I wonder how Fran would feel to see how comfortable Judith is with Helen's affection. Will comes in, with glasses of red wine for himself and Helen, and suggests that Kevin can give Judith a ride: "You shouldn't be walking around at night." Kevin says he's heading downtown anyway. Judith: "Everyone has a date tonight." Kevin says he's just covering night court. Judith mutters, "Oh been there." Suddenly remembering herself, she turns to Joan's parents: "In my youth." They nod indulgently. Kevin opens the door to find Adam standing there nervously. He's in a suit and tie, with a slightly too-big overcoat, and his hair greased back. Not loving the hair. And for anyone who hasn't been able to see the John Cusack resemblance I mentioned well over a year ago come on, you must be able to see it now. He's carrying a single red rose in a cellophane sleeve. Kevin wraps his coat around himself, crosses his arms and looks at Adam expectantly. Adam's confronted with his date's older brother, her best friend, and her parents -- one of whom is his teacher and the other, a cop. Poor kid. To his credit, he doesn't get too flustered: "Uh, I'm here for Joan." Nobody says anything; Helen and Judith beam at him. Will suppresses a smirk with a slightly disgruntled fatherly look. You can tell Kevin wants to give him a hard time, but lets him off with a firm clap of his hands and an "Aw!" As he passes Adam, he slaps him on the shoulder a couple of times. Judith tells him, "Dude. You are the shock and awe of cute." Aw! Adam's nervous expression hasn't changed. Will: "You can come in, Adam. You have before." He finally relaxes a little as he crosses the threshold and closes the door.
