Later, Ali and Cody come downstairs to see how their devious little plan turned out. Michael and Nina pretend they ate the chicken, but Ali catches on. Rambunctious behavior ensues. The kids try to bust their way into Michael's locked room, then high five each other for saving the day. You see, they're all-American! Just a normal family! It's like a scene out of, say... The Parent Trap. Wait just one flippin' minute. Could this be set up? Say it ain't so.
The next day, Ali and Dina-saur sit in the kitchen and plot to bring Nana to Vegas. I'm bored with this plotline. Let's talk about Ali's clothes! She is wearing a leopard print kimono and about 73 pounds of makeup. It all adds up to a look that screams bordello maven. Okay, we can go back to regularly scheduled programming because Nana's home! She shows up with a tribute portrait of her late husband. Dina-saur VOs about her parents' 50-year marriage and how they were there for her during her divorce. In an interview, Nana admits that she's less motivated to go on trips now that her husband is gone.
All the LoHos hang out in the kitchen reminiscing about Pop Pop. Even little Cody pulls out Pop Pop's mass card, which he wears in his shin guard during games. Nana tears up while reading the card, and Cody gives her a consolation hug. She interviews that it's only getting harder to live without her partner as time passes. Poor Nana! Dina-saur finally realizes she should stop pushing Nana to go to Vegas.
Later, Michael and Nina leave LoHouse. As a lark, Cody jumps on the car hood as Michael pulls away. Dina-saur brings out the bitch face as she reprimands him, then turns her wrath to Michael and Nina. Just an everyday, American family, kids! The episode ends with a dedication to "A Beautiful Life: John L. Sullivan, 1924-2004."
Next up: It's Vegas, baby! Things start on a high note as the Maloofs toast to Ali's success, then inevitably take a downturn when she actually has to, you know, sing. Cue teenage crying, excessive mommying, and smoke blowing in an upward direction around many, many asses.
