Breakfast time in the Girardi household. Joan's annoying her family by videotaping them. The episode switches back and forth between JoanCam and the normal deal. Helen wearily asks her to stop. Joan notices her mother looks really great today, and zooms in on her mouth: "Are you wearing lipstick?" Helen's irritated: "Don't you have to go to school?" Joan: "You never wear lipstick." She doesn't? Luke, eating cereal, asks his mother if she has a job interview or something. Joan, who didn't catch that on camera, commands him to say it again. Luke complies, impatiently. Joan starts narrating the action as she returns to Helen: "For those of you who are not watching in Odorama, Mom is always wearing a very nice perfume today." Helen complains, "Now I know how Sean Penn feels." Will comes down the kitchen stairs in a very unflattering argyle sweater. Joan, frustrated, yells, "Cut!" Luke: "Please stop yelling 'cut.'" Joan: "Wardrobe. Dad, I can't shoot you in that sweater! Everyone will think this is actually what you like!" He says it's his lucky sweater, and yells to Kevin that they have a 7:30 tee time. (Which I always hear as "tea time" and have to remind myself it's not.) Will drinks some orange juice right out of the container after declaring, "Today I'm going to play like Tiger Woods when he played like Tiger Woods." As Kevin wheels in, wearing a polo shirt, Joan starts taping him: "Oh, preppy retro. That's working." She narrates: "This is my brother, Kevin Girardi." Will wants to get going. Kevin smirks: "He can't wait for me to kick his ass." Helen reminds Will they have to go over the Bakers' statements today. Will's pissed, and intends to play golf. He has no intention of letting the Bakers screw that up for him. Joan stops taping. Helen says okay. Will quickly apologizes, and when he kisses Helen's head, he says, "Hey you smell good. Got a date?" Helen claims, "I am just competing with your true love. It takes effort." Will teases her: "After golf, you are a very close second." He tells Kevin, "Let's go, duffer." Joan tapes them as they leave. Kevin mugs. Jason Ritter can't help it. It's genetic.
