Presidential Suite. Or is it? Patrick takes the Lincoln portrait off the wall and replaces it with a shot of Marin, doing her best Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Patrick excitedly tells her that, with her moving out and into her house, the room is now the Marin Frist Suite, since Annie thinks her name can net them an extra $10 a night. Annie recaps all the things that happened in the room: Marin broke up with Graham, slept with Jack, had phone sex with Stuart.... Marin asks how they know all that. "Thin walls," says Patrick. Marin suggests that they spend that $10 on insulation. Annie says something about adding that to the list of things they want to get done on the Inn while they're in New York, and Marin exposits that this will be "the big meet-the-parents weekend." Annie's thrilled to get to tell her parents in person that they're engaged, and that Patrick wants to do the traditional thing by asking Annie's father for her hand. Annie makes a tactless remark about how Marin's and Annie's marital statuses have flipped since they arrived in Elmo, but Marin shrugs it off, as only a woman who's replaced Abe Lincoln can.
Marin pulls out her bags and marches them toward her new front door...but her excitement turns to horror as she sees that Cash has set his tent up in her side yard. She calls him out for observing the letter of their agreement rather than the spirit (in that he's not living in the house), and he scares her with talk of all the work that could still be done on the exterior of the house, and, for good measure, makes her feel guilty for not being generous with all her empty land. Marin relents, saying he can stay for a week, until he can find something else, and Cash grins to have put one over on her.
Lamaze class. The students introduce themselves: we have a husband and wife, a single mom and friend, guy/girl "life partners," and Lynn and Jack: she says "boyfriend," he says "partner," she edits it to "all of the above," and everyone (including Jack and Lynn) laugh good-naturedly. Can I suggest he be known as her "dawg"?
Jack's/Celia's. Patrick is getting a refresher course in self-defense from Celia, who's sure that Patrick's definitely going to get mugged in New York, if not end up with stolen kidneys. Mai enters with a huge chintz-covered binder, sending Patrick off to pack so that Buzz can fly him to Seattle for his connection. Celia doesn't let him go without promising he won't come back with another mother; Patrick smiles knowingly, but doesn't commit, perhaps still thinking he'll eventually trade Celia in for good. Once he's gone, Mai plops down her binder: it's time for her and Celia to start planning the wedding. Perfect, because I'm sure they have a really similar aesthetic.
