The doorbell rings and Adam rushes to get a look at Gaby, who he is sure is going to be tore up. He has to hide his pantslessness behind the open fridge door. Gaby, blessed with youth, is of course fine. She does not even karate chop Max with hangover violence when he answers the door by announcing that he's done his homework and will take his stickers now. "Do I get a 'good morning,' first?" Gaby asks. Max: "Good morning. Do I get an extra sticker for that?" Gaby smiles and waves at Adam and Kristina who are leering from the kitchen doorway. "She looks like a mess," Kristina snarks when Gaby goes upstairs with Max. "She looks wrecked, honey." Adam har hars and they are joined by Haddie, who is nonplussed to find her dad in his underwear. She gets over it, fast, when she starts talking about her amazing time with Julia at the office. "It's so nice to have this, like, female professional that I can look up to, you know?" she says. Kristina is obviously crushed, but says nothing. "That's great, honey," she cringes. Haddie blabs on, especially loving that there's a guy in her aunt's office whose entire job, as far as she can tell, is to get Julia a latte whenever she wants one. "That would be so cool," Kristina sighs, uncomfortably. "Yeah, you should have seen the way everybody just respected her," Haddie says. "Like, her secretary is a dude, first of all. It's like she's her own, powerful woman." God. She twists the knife one more time, talking about the expensive lunch they had, which was "the best meal of my life." Adam spends this entire time cutting looks over at his wife, feeling her pain.
Meanwhile, Julia is at her own house, struggling with her perfection. She tells Joel that talking to Haddie really reminded her of why she got into law in the first place: to protect people's rights. Now, she says, she is using her degree to crush little companies. Joel is kind of amused by this. "You love crushing little companies," he says. Julia: "I know, but what kind of person loves that?"
