Ava walks inside and tells her roommates, "Home." Johnny thinks that she means that she's staying in Kansas, and how could he misunderstand such a clear statement? I mean, she said, "Home." What is there to misunderstand? Except everything. Ava clarifies that she wants to take the kids to California and get a new apartment. Johnny thinks she should stay in the beach house. Ava doesn't think that will work, and Jay agrees. He says that he lived in the beach house with another family before his current roommates lived in, and that there was no privacy. Johnny pointedly clears his throat, and Jay says that he's sure they can make it work. Susannah agrees, because they're "lousy with space." She quickly details where everyone would sleep to prove her point. ["How these four apparently marginally employed people shared a house with two dens, an entirely vacant top floor, and a boathouse is a mystery to me." -- Wing Chun] Johnny adds that Ava can't move out when she needs this much help. Ava asks if they're sure they want to do this, and implores them really to think about it. In the next two minutes. Susannah says it doesn't matter if they are sure, because it's not like there are damaged children's psyches and lives at stake. Johnny advises Ava to go tell the kids. Ava sees the three kids sitting alone on the couch, and stops. Johnny gives her a "buck up little camper" shoulder rub, and Ava gains the strength to go and tell the kids that, on top of their parents dying, they now have to move to another state. Like, tomorrow.
Back in California, Ava gets out of the shower and grabs a towel. Derrick walks in and gasps, and then immediately covers his eyes and insists that he didn't see anything. Why do television writers always use the old "walking in on someone naked" as a sign that things are crowded? It's called a locked door. Look into it. Or try knocking. Who walks into a bathroom where the door is closed, anyway? Derrick asks where the washcloths are, so Ava fills him in and he walks off. Ava sighs, and Susannah walks over and starts laughing at her. Ava says she just scarred the kid for life. Is she that hideous? Does she have a third nipple or something? Ava turns around, totally baring her ass, when the door is wide open. She sighs, "And so the day begins." This will become, like, her catchphrase or something. I have no idea why.
