Aaron: B | Grade It Now!
Death takes a holiday

Alan Ball: [Flick] Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Dude, turn on the TV. There's a Cheech & Chong marathon on Skinemax.
Aaron Sorkin: Hey! Stop bogarting the Pirate's Booty.
Robert Iler: Screw Cheech & Chong. Death Race 2000 is on! Damn, that's a great movie.
Alan Ball: Yeah, and I bet Aaron's all pissed that he hasn't been able to use it as a recap title yet.
MBTV Aaron: Actually, I'm more pissed that I haven't been able to use "Russell Simmons' Death Comedy Jam." You know, it's got the clever HBO tie-in and all.
Aaron Sorkin: Whatever, dude. It's still no "In Excelsis Deo."
Alan Ball: Ooh! I am sooo telling Rick on you.
MBTV Aaron: Hey, can I have a hit?
Alan Ball: Only if you admit that SFU is better than The Sopranos.
Robert Iler: Don't do it, man. I'll Jackie Jr. your ass.
MBTV Aaron: Tell you what, work in a Robert Evans joke and promise to never make a New Jersey Devils reference, and you've got yourself a deal. [Flick] Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Okay. Are you back? Good. Over at Kathy Bates's house, Harvey is explaining that Doctor Dork has agreed not to press charges against Billy. Zhora and Dad have decided, however, that Billy needs to be committed, and they're asking Brenda to talk to him about it. Then she suddenly realizes that they're not just suggesting committal; they also want Billy to undergo electroshock therapy. I didn't think anyone actually did that sort of thing anymore, but if ever anyone deserved it, it's probably Billy. Brenda tells off her parents, then stalks out of the house.

Formaldehyde Fortress. Ruth is sitting in the kitchen eating lunch when Illeana comes up to join her. She explains that after she spilled beet salad on someone's wig, David is making her eat upstairs. Then she proceeds to compliment Ruth's hair and explain that she never wants to become "one of those menopausal women who go all dyke-y with the butch haircut." I think we all know where this scene is going. Ruth looks more and more mortified as Illeana gets more and more inappropriate. The final straw comes when she asks Ruth if her relationship with Hiram is "just hot sex." That was pretty much my final straw too. I just hit pause and went out for breakfast. At noon. Anyway, I'm back now, and I'll finish the scene, especially because thinking about "hot sex" with Ed Begley Jr. is doing wonders for my diet.
