"Lana! The place looks fantastic!" Nell says, after Clark leaves. Lana shows Nell the pictures. "Do you know who he is?" Lana asks. Nell says it must be one of her mom's old boyfriends. One of hundreds? Lana says the photos are from when her parents were married, the year before she was born. So Lana is still sixteen, then. Nell says that Lana's mother loved Lana and her father more than anything in the world. She says mom never would have done anything to hurt either of them. That's it. No explanation. Commercials.
Is it just me, or do those Trivial Pursuit ads seem a little smug and condescending? Like, who are they to make fun of Kato Kaelin? They're fucking Trivial Pursuit. They're one step removed from Boggle.
Kent Farm. A light purple sedan shows up. Who ordered the pimpmobile? A thicker, more heavy-set Jason Robards type gets out and greets MamaKent. It's Grumpy Gramps. MamaKent says she appreciates his making the trip. They hug a little awkwardly as orchestral music plays. Grumpy says he was surprised by her call, and that it must have taken a lot for Bo Duke to take money from him. MamaKent says that Bo doesn't know about the call. Grumpy looks around. He says he imagined the farm differently, but he didn't want this life for her. She had so much potential, top ten in her class, blah blah blah, lawschoolcakes. MamaKent says she never wanted to be a lawyer. Why defend the weak or prosecute criminals when you could be baking muffins? Grumpy won't let it go. He says it's the life Bo Duke chose, and that MamaKent just went along for the ride. Have you ridden in the General Lee, Gramps? No young woman can resist. MamaKent says it's not about Bo. She says Gramps raised an independent daughter, and now he's mad because that's what he got. Gramps says she's going behind he husband's back to ask for money. Just then, Clark walks up. "What's up?" he says. Clark and Gramps regard each other. "Pleased to meet you, sir," Clark says, shaking the man's hand. All he gets is a "Hello, Clark." Grumpy says he'll be at the hotel. He says he'll have a check for MamaKent the next morning. Clark asks if Grumpy can stay with them. Grumpy says that's probably not a good idea. "Dinner?" MamaKent shakes her head. Clark suggests one meal as a family. Grumpy declines and exits. MamaKent goes inside. Clark is sad. It's not exactly a new emotion.
