Manning Manor. Lily, Rick, Zoe, and Jess are in the kitchen for a little late-night ice cream snack. Zoe exclaims, "They were both so good." Rick isn't surprised. Ah, Rick. Zoe just can't believe Eli didn't come to the performance. Blah, he had to work, blah. Jessie moans about her costume destroying the entire set. Lily says that it really didn't. Apparently, Karen thought it was a part of the performance. Eli, who was skulking in the background somewhere, appears to say, "Mom was there?" Jessie: "Like she'd miss opening night." Eli says that maybe he'll go tomorrow night. Rick slaps his son on the leg, and banters, "Ah, we'll go together." Oh, Grace is there, too. She's leaning up against the counter. She and Eli are the symbolic outsiders this week. Lily wanted to meet Tad and to congratulate Mr. Dimitri. I guess she completely missed him when she walked right by him backstage. Well, Grace thinks her mother can see her teacher on closing night. Lily intones, "He must have been very pleased." Grace smirks as she takes the bowl of ice cream Lily hands her. "Was he pleased?" Ah, Lily, her intuition always amazes me. She's a SuperMother sometimes. Grace sits down and snots, "I really have no idea. And I actually don't care." Except she does. A lot. Blah, Mr. Dimitri isn't God, blah. Eli's had enough of this scene, and announces he's going to bed. Rousing chorus of "goodnight." Grace continues her all-about-me soliloquy: "What actually matters is whether or not I'm pleased with myself." Apparently, this is the "right" attitude to have, because Lily, Queen of the Me, responds by saying, "You're absolutely right." Zoe's no fool, though, and wants to know exactly what Mr. Dimitri said. Grace lets the music do the talking as we fade to black.
