A bored Boopsie wanders outside to get away from yenta Lillian. She hears some music from somewhere and starts heading towards it. Parked out on the street, Tom is leaning against his car, sucking on a Tootsie Pop, and listening to the blues. Tom must lead a very bland life if he just sits around at parties waiting for his brother. A blues singer on the soundtrack repeats "I got me some" as Boopsie heads over to Tom. I tried looking up the song and singer, without luck. Anyway, Boopsie walks over and stands next to him, leaning against the car. Without saying a word, Tom pulls another Tootsie Pop out of his pocket, unwraps it, and offers it to Boopsie. She accepts it and begins sucking on it, lustily. Tom looks at her as if he's not certain whether he's just gotten incredibly lucky, or into deep trouble. Neither of them says a word. End scene.
Inside, Henry's (alleged) mother is chatting with some woman about getting their kids together for a "play date." God, I hate that phrase. You're letting your kids play together. It's not a damn meeting or something. Henry tentatively approaches. The two women glance at him briefly, but since neither recognizes him, they don't pay him much mind. He slowly draws closer. Page finally notices that he's been staring it him. Henry opens his mouth like he's going to say something, but nothing comes out. Page looks at him nervously for a second, then turns away uncomfortably and continues talking to her friend. I don't blame her for the nervousness. Henry looks like he's about to pull out a gun and accuse her of transmitting secret messages to the space aliens that work at the KGB through his fillings, and then blow her head off. Henry loses his nerve and turns to walk away.
On the stairwell, a friend of George's is asking for everybody's attention so he can blather on about how great George is and offer up a toast. Lily draws Catherine's eye. Catherine is holding a glass of wine (chardonnay, perhaps?), and her casual posture suggests that it's not her first. Or her second, third, fourth, or perhaps fifth. The man finishes his toast and asks if anybody has anything else to add. A voice shouts out that he would. It's Nate, standing up on the second-floor balcony. I must recite Nate's speech in its entirety, and then try to recall my responses as I initially watched this episode. Nate says, "We all know that my Dad's a great publisher. But what you may not know is what an amazing father he is to his children. It's true, Dad. You are. For instance, this morning I woke up in this gay guy's hotel room. Just one of those things that happens to the best of us. I guess the night before I'd gone through $2,000 of his best Columbian blow. So he was pissed off -- and horny. If I didn't pay him back, he was going to take my virginity. But my dad came to the rescue. He offered me the money so I could pay off this guy, and that's the kind of dad George Greeley is. So I want to thank you, Pop, from the bottom of my bottom. You're the best." Everybody looks on with various levels of horror or humiliation, except for Robert and Jayleen, who look vaguely amused. Robert even smirks and offers a "Hear! Hear!" when Nate's done. I guess he's happy to see somebody else participating in the total humiliation of the Greeley family.
