MONDO EXTRAS

Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers

Mike talks to Kate on the phone. Kate relays that she's having an hour-and-a-half-long foot massage. It seems like after about thirty minutes, it would get kind of old. Mike prepares to tell Kate about Tokyo, but he's interrupted by his call waiting. It's his boss, who wants to talk about Tokyo office space. Mike switches back to Kate, who says that she knows what Mike is up to, and she thinks it's a great idea. But she wants cherry, not walnut. Maggie told Kate that Mike was redoing the floors. Kate thinks they should make the spa a regular thing, and Mike agrees. He clicks back to his boss, who pressures him about the Tokyo decision.

Mike visits Ben at his office. He asks what it would take to make the sale of their parents' home fall through. Ben refuses to consider it, since he thinks this sale will get him awards at his office. Ben babbles some inspirational-speaker talk. Mike wants to discuss the possibility, and somehow this devolves into a Nerf basketball game. Ben reveals that he got Richie and Fiona to hire a home inspector who's practically blind. Mike thinks that Ben was a lot more fun when he was a slacker. As Mike walks out, Ben's boss walks in and says that Ben is doing great, but that he heard that the Seavers won't shorten the escrow. Ben's boss says that he's counting on Ben to make this happen.

Mike and his small nation of children go home to check out the progress on their floors. I guess Mike realized he needed to actually go through with it, but I'm not sure how he managed to find an available crew in, like, five minutes. Anyway, the house is sheathed in plastic and covered in sawdust. The foreman of the floor crew, who is Russian or something, admits that it's a little messy. Mike's phone rings and it's Kate. Didn't they talk, like, half an hour ago? Mike gets a call on the other line from his boss, who pressures him again for a decision on Tokyo. Mike clicks back and suggests that Kate stay at the spa for a few more days. As Mike talks to Kate, the kids run amok and the floor sander starts flying around of its own accord. Maybe they'll get rid of one of the kids in a tragic power-tool accident.

Mike finds Carol at their parents' home, lying on a bed and playing music to her pregnant belly. Mike says that he needs her help, and Carol -- referring to the tons of sawdust about Mike's person -- suggests a dandruff shampoo. Heh. Carol sits up and says that she needs his help, too. She reminds Mike of the time they flushed something big down the toilet, and the time they burned the Christmas tree in the fireplace, and says that things of that nature can cause permanent damage and make a house unattractive to a potential buyer. Mike gets it.
