Ava comes downstairs and finds Nikki in the kitchen. Ava starts babbling about how "the Canadians pulled out of Johnny's deal." Oh, those Canadians. Always pulling out of deals and suchlike. I still have no idea what Johnny does. Ava explains that Derrick and Nikki have to go to the airport while Ava and Susannah have their meeting. Nikki says she promised Derrick that they would dig for crabs. This is where I would say, "Okay, but things change, so you're going with us." Or, I would drag Bradin back from wherever the hell he is, so he could watch them. Ava tries to negotiate, which is her first mistake. Susannah gets into it too, but Nikki isn't having it. Nikki makes the excuse that she thinks Derrick has sunstroke, and Ava totally falls for it and rushes over to feel Derrick's forehead. Nikki bitches that Ava needs a thermometer, and then acts disgusted that Ava doesn't have a first aid kit. Is there usually a thermometer in a first aid kit? Isn't that more like bandages and ointments and ice packs and stuff? Susannah rolls her eyes. Derrick insists that he's okay, and Susannah is glad to hear it. Nikki says that when Derrick was really sick before, he still said that he was okay, even when he had to be hospitalized. Susannah reminds Ava of their appointment. Ava tells Derrick to stick out his tongue and say "aah." Nikki bitches that Ava doesn't know what she's looking for. Ava is fed up and says that things will be fine, and that they need to get going. Nikki keeps making excuses, and asks if Susannah can just take the clothes and go without Ava. Ava explains that they're selling themselves. So, they're prostitutes now? At least that explains how they can afford the rent on this beach house. Ava asks Nikki again to get in the car. Nikki says no and walks away. Oh, no she didn't! Ava should slap the taste right out of her mouth. Instead, Ava tells Susannah that she'll be fine on her own. Susannah starts to argue, but sees the look on Ava's face and makes up the excuse that Ava had to go to New York to meet with Donna Karan. Wow. I can't believe they let Nikki get away with that shit. Way to teach her that she rules the household.
