Vanessa opens the front door of her house and the two Federiquitos barrel inside, followed by Rico himself. And as the boys run upstairs to play with their new product-placed videogame system (good luck setting it up by yourselves, munchkins), we see that Vanessa and Rico's marital separation is an amicable one, since they're being rather friendly with one another. She asks who he's bringing to Nate's wedding. Rico says, "No one. You wanna come?" Vanessa nicely declines. "You should bring a real date," she suggests. Rico asks if that wouldn't be weird. She says no and asks about "Dana, the makeup artist." Rico says she was too "cheerful or something." I'm kind of amazed at how many dates Rico's getting. You suppose he lies about his height in his dating profile and uses a picture of Fabio? Vanessa says that "you have to give people a chance to grow on you." Poor choice of phrasing, Vanessa; that's the last thing Rico needs. He tells her, "Don't take this the wrong way, but no one's you." Vanessa says that if Rico had been this picky when they were going out, he wouldn't have married her either: "You just have to find someone you like and be nice to them." Rico asks if that's how it is with her boyfriend Kenny, but Vanessa says that didn't work out. What, these two haven't seen each other for months, either? I guess that might explain why they're getting along so well now. Rico doesn't even bother to pretend he's not happy to hear the news about Kenny. She analyzes, "It's okay for me. I don't need someone as much as you do...It's not a bad thing, Rico. You're just a person who does better with someone." Rico ponders that. I'm so glad Vanessa's in the regular cast now, because she seems like just about the only character who can consistently shut him up.
