The doorbell rings, and Kirsten answers it. It's Renee. Kirsten wonders if Renee is looking for Aunt Lindsay, but Renee is not: "Actually, I was wondering, could I talk to you?" Commercials.
Kirsten and Renee walk into the kitchen. Kirsten offers Renee some wine, but she declines, and apologizes for showing up at such an inconvenient time. Kirsten asks her if everything is okay, and Renee just gives her this long look. Kirsten: "I'm gonna have a glass of wine." Renee compliments the house, and then says, "What I'm going to say -- it should be Caleb who is saying it." She's surprised to hear from Kirsten that Caleb is there, but turns down Kirsten's offer to get him. Just then, Caleb and Sandy enter the kitchen. Caleb is surprised to see Renee. He asks what she's doing there, and Sandy figures out that "she's here to do what [Caleb's] about to do." And now they're joined by all the kids, with Aunt Lindsay at the head of the pack. She's surprised to see her mother, and even more surprised to hear Caleb call her by her name. Aunt Lindsay and Kirsten both want to know what's going on. Renee tries to leave, but Kirsten won't let her. And now the group is joined by Julie, with Jimmy about five steps behind her -- they've clearly just come from doing the nasty. Seth thinks it's a "good thing the kitchen's roomy." Caleb tries to get all the bystanders to leave the room, but that is clearly not happening. After a bit more tense staring around, he apologizes to Lindsay and Kirsten: "I had hoped that I could protect you both from this forever, but the circumstances being what they are, where your mother and I face going to prison...well, there really is no choice." And then he tells them all that "sixteen years ago, [he] made an error in judgment." This is sufficient to clue them all in, apparently -- Kirsten and Aunt Lindsay both whisper "Oh my God," while Julie lets out a fairly hilarious "No. Way." Aunt Lindsay, in tears, runs out the room, with Renee close behind her. Caleb walks over to Kirsten and says, "I don't know what to say." And then, smack! Kirsten slaps him right across the face. Kirsten walks away, and Caleb walks up to Julie. Smack! Julie slaps him on the other cheek. Heh. It's not quite fisticuffs, but I think it'll do. Julie tells Caleb, "I think you should be ashamed of yourself." Sandy has already gone after Kirsten, and Jimmy now goes after Julie, leaving Caleb alone with Seth, Ryan, Marissa, and Summer. Seth gives Caleb a little wave, and Caleb walks out of the kitchen. And then Ryan goes after Lindsay while Seth goes after Kirsten. Leaving Summer and Marissa to just hang out. Great party! Summer: "Suddenly, my family -- not so dysfunctional." Marissa: "You do know this is my family, too?" Summer: "Right, sorry. I forget sometime. It's confusing."
