Cut to a Gulfstream, already in flight. Heh. David is on board, drinking a margarita and calling Rico to let him know that he and Nate are "tied up" for the rest of the day, and Rico will have to go pick up a body for them. In the shock of all shocks, Rico whines about it. On the other hand, David does hang up on him, so at least we're making progress. Mitzi teases them a bit about stealing this week's funeral from Kroehner, and further points out to Nate that "this whole self-righteous, chip-on-the-shoulder thing, it kind of worked for Russell Crowe in Gladiator, but honey, you don't have the special effects to back it up." Or the silky-smooth waxed chest, for that matter. They're joined by Bobo at this point (but not my Bobo), and he congratulates them on their decision to sell out. "We're never selling to Kroehner," insists Nate. "Oh," replies Bobo. "Well then, you're idiots. No offense." I certainly can't argue with that.
Meanwhile, back at the Fortress, Claire spies on her aunt. Sarah does tai chi, so you just know that she's all mystical and wise and shit. You know, in case all those other hints they've dropped so far didn't make that clear. Claire heads into the kitchen, where she finds Ruth folding clothes. "It must have been fun having a sister growing up," she says, but Ruth disagrees, claiming that "fun isn't the word [she] would use." Then she snarks on her sister some more, saying that Sarah has "no boundaries" and would have only disappointed Claire. Based on the previews for next week, I'm sure we'll be finding out just how true that is. Of course, based on the speed with which I write recaps, you've probably already seen that episode, so it's sort of a moot point. Claire isn't interested in having cold water splashed all over her hero-worship, so she gets up to leave. As she goes, Ruth tries to tell her that she can do anything she puts her mind to, but Claire couldn't care less anymore what Mom might have to say.
Oy. Another Rico/Vanessa scene. Cousin What'sHisName is working on the moldy walls, and Rico and Vanessa are fighting. Again. The cousin takes Vanessa's side, and sets up what appears to be an even more boring and pointless extension of this subplot when he flirts with her a bit. Is there some kind of HBO requirement that all married women on this network have to sleep with the guys who renovate their houses? I mean, Carrie did it, Carmela almost did it, and now we've got Vanessa. Hell, I'm surprised (and thankful) that Rebadow didn't sleep with Busmalis after he dug that tunnel in their cell.
