As the boutique owner comes back, Janet has twirled on over to where Mary's standing so the two are side by side, and when the boutique owner shows something better suited to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Janet turns to Mary and says, "A bit much, isn't it?" "A little much," Mary concurs. The two women eventually settle on a gold brocade number. Janet turns to Mary and says, "So, um " "Mary," Mary supplies. "Mary!" Janet gushes. She continues, "You know what I just realized?" "What?" asks Mary through a clenched grin. "I just realized that I like you. In fact, you are going to be my -- and Kiki's -- new best friend. Kiki, say hello to your Auntie Mary." There's a little scene with the dog, and then the paparazzi slip in. Janet dives for the nearest corner -- again, not entirely in keeping with her diva persona, since no diva in her right mind would turn down a lot of attention -- but Mary quickly dispatches the ravening mob of lensmen.
Hey, everyone! It's a Vegas cameo: the Maloof brothers. They fill Delinda in on how they own a lot of sports teams and Vegas properties, two ventures they should probably concentrate on in lieu of acting. Delinda's all, "Sorry, boys, no reservation, no table, tee hee!" Just then, Mike comes on out and hugs on the Maloofs, all of whom seem happy to see him. He's all, "The whole Maloof clan is out tonight! What's up, guys?' Delinda asks, "So you know these guys?" "Yeah, they're cool," he replies. Delinda lets them in with, "You should just say you're friends of Mike's. Enjoy Mystique, gentlemen."
Inside, Big Ed is happily gloating to Mrs. Big Ed about Delinda's success and how proud he is. He then awkwardly asks if they're still on for tennis the next day, because he's kinds sorta maybe invited Sandy along since she happens to be in town. Mrs. Big Ed communicates how very pissed she is with, "I didn't realize you two still stayed in touch." Big Ed backpedals a lot, and when he notices Mrs. Big Ed tapping a fork around threateningly, he's all, "She just happened to come into the Montecito, and I think that I probably mentioned we were gonna play or something," which totally translates into him having been all, "Jillian and I would love to play with you! Can you come by at eleven?" with Sandra. Mrs. Big Ed calls him on it, and he claims Sandy invited herself. Mrs. Big Ed continues to give him the fisheye, and Big Ed babbles his way into a defensive corner: "Honey, we worked together!" "And very closely, as I recall," Jillian shoots back. How would she have known at the time? I thought the whole point to covert ops was to make sure your cover was completely consistent; going home to one wife to talk about another "wife" would seem to contradict that. Big Ed invokes the professional equivalent of, "Baby, she meant nothing to me!" Judging from Mrs. Big Ed's demeanor, there are no gondola rides in the near future for Big Ed.
