Nikki walks through Ava and Susannah's studio, and Susannah asks for her help. For some reason, Susannah has her hair in a ponytail with a chiffon scarf in it, like she's on the set of Happy Days. She should tell Nikki to sit on it. Susannah asks Nikki's opinion on a sketch. Nikki says she doesn't know, and adds that "emperors of the world" don't know much about fashion. Susannah apologizes for her remark, and tries to discuss Nikki's attitude, but Nikki gets pissed that Susannah calls her "sweetheart" and "honey" and stomps off. Ava walks upstairs and asks what happened. Susannah lies that Nikki is going to take a nap. This is clearly going to be one of those shows that pisses me off, because if these people actually, you know, talked to each other like adults once in a while, they would cut their problems in half. But instead, they lie and misdirect and avoid, and it's annoying.
Derrick digs through a box of toys until he finds a pair of sunglasses. He puts them on. Johnny watches, then shakes his head, and sits down in a chair to read the paper. Derrick is wearing women's sunglasses, and they are a cat's-eye shape with rhinestones in the corners. Is that supposed to be funny? It's creepy.
