Oh dear Lord. Claire and Gabe are at his house, and they're watching, wait for it…Full House. Because there's nothing that would cheer me up more after the death of a younger sibling than watching a show about four precociously cute kids. Although I guess making fun of John Stamos could brighten anyone's day. Gabe decides to pack up all of his brother's toys to give to the kid next door, but then his mom comes home and yells at him for it. "She doesn't even look me in the eyes anymore," he says, and Claire looks heartbroken for him. She decides to take him on a little field trip, and leads him out of the house.
Back at the Body Shop, Illeana Douglas has shown up for her first day of work. Before Nate can even let her into the room, she apologizes for having eaten calamari the night before, because "this is one time the strong smell of formaldehyde really comes in handy." Ew. Then we cut straight to a shot of Illeana's breasts as she gets to work and relates a story about a turkey baster and a guy with a low sperm count. Ew again. Or is this yet another Sex and the City shout-out? You be the judge. And in yet another nod to Alan Ball's penchant for pot, Illeana is wearing a pot-leaf pendant. Rick Cleveland aside, I get the distinct sense that Alan Ball and Aaron Sorkin would get along just famously, don't you? I'd love to be a fly on the bong for those convorsations.
Alan Ball: [Flick] Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. So, who wants to try that Pink Floyd/Wizard of Oz thing?
Aaron Sorkin: Dude! Quit bogarting the Cheetos.
Robert Iler: You know, this is some good shit. Who'd you have to beat up to get it?
Alan Ball: Actually, no one. Woody Harrelson just moved in next door to me. He grows it right in his backyard.
Aaron Sorkin: Hey, you better be careful, kid. Too much of that stuff, and somebody's going to emergency, and somebody's going to jail.
Robert Iler: Shut up, Shroom Boy. My show can totally kick your show's ass.
Aaron Sorkin: Yeah, but my show can investigate your show for RICO violations.
Alan Ball: Both of you shut up, or you'll be appearing in the opening to MY show.
Aaron Sorkin: Ooh, that reminds me. Since you like celebrity directors as much as I do, I'll trade you Laura Innes and Ken Olin for Kathy Bates next season.
