Just then, B-Plot's nasty ex-wife makes a noisy entrance into the studio. You can tell she's wicked because of her tight white mini-dress, and because of her obviously unsupported gripe that the kids are "unsupervised." B-Plot rolls his eyes and tells the boys not to worry about it, but to just go with Mom. They all exchange the Fists of Fatherhood, and then a nice hug. Kate looks on warmly, as she is wont to do. B-Plot tells his ex-wife that he wants to pick the boys up on Thursday and have a Thanksgiving lunch with them, but she breaks the news that she and her boyfriend are taking them to Maui, and they'll be long gone by then. I certainly hope she isn't going to Maui to buy clunky jewelry, because she really has enough. Anyway, not only is Mama taking the kids to Maui, but he won't even get his usual weekend, because she won't be back till Sunday. Mama B-Plot -- whose name is Ronica -- offers her ex the sop of an extra day or two next week. B-Plot does the kids no big favor by reading their mom out right in front of them about how she just wants to "shake [her] liposuctioned booty up and down the beach" in Maui, and how she has no priorities. Healthy! Unsurprisingly, Ronica is unmoved by this display. Kate protests that this plan violates the custody order, which prohibits taking the boys out of state without notice. The former Mrs.-B-Plot snots in reply that this is her notice, calling Kate "blonde girl" in the process. Regarding Kate, Ronica says to B-Plot, "I hope she's much better in bed than she is in the courtroom." Of course, as a result of this, when Ronica is gone, Kate vows that they'll take her down. Because zealous advocacy only really kicks in when you're insulted personally. Until then, it's all kind of abstract.
