At the lighthouse, a rather put upon real estate salesman says that they shouldn't bother signing in because the open house is officially off. Emerson and Olive in raincoats want to know who he is. Willie Gherkin (and I'm not even going to touch that name... I just... ) who is from Smiley Realty. Olive: "You lost your smile, pickle." He just found out that he can't sell the land because it is a historical monument and he's bummed, because this isn't the way The Secret is supposed to work. He's so over-the-top effeminate. I love it. They want to know where Elliot is. Willie: "That little bowl-cut split. But not before I advanced him 10 grand against the sale." The plot thickens and the boob-obsessed, change-bearing teenage boy is looking more and more suspicious. Willie continues that it is because Merle and Elliot were heading out of town and needed quick cash, which may or may not be legal, but Willie should be forgiven because he's new at this. And he's got cookies. He thinks he's going to return to personal training, at least there he was respected. Emerson does some wild gesticulating and speculating, while Olive tries to follow along (complete with hand gestures), which given their size difference is so oddly hilarious that I can't even deal. Olive points out that the weather is terrible, so they must be in hiding. She wants to smoke them out. Emerson, despite being named after a fish, doesn't like working in the downpour. Olive doesn't understand his rain hatred since he isn't a cat and doesn't have hair. He reveals that it is because he got dumped. He used to curl up with his ex on rainy days with some hooch and tomato soup and rain days always bring him down because of this fact. Olive says they can hang out in the lighthouse, since she's always wanted to visit. Of course she has. She takes a jug and blows, which gives Emerson the heebie jeebies, but her a theory on where the McQuoddy's are hiding. The sea caves. Emerson threatens to give them the back of his hand if he finds them. He stands up, at which point Olive flings herself at him doing a strange chest bump and saying "Booyah!" and then takes off running. Hysterical.
