Back inside, Ryan -- all clean, pressed, and hair-fluffed -- nearly collides with a distracted Kirsten as he enters the kitchen. They make small talk about swimming, until Ryan discovers a Barbie Dream House sitting on a card table in the middle of the kitchen. Kirsten explains that it's a model home, and she builds them, then clarifying that she doesn't actually build the models, but "real ones, not that one." Ryan asks, "Can you build me one?" and then apologizes for the "bad joke," when Kirsten is bothered. He stares the model house down before heading over to the dinner table. Hmmm. I guess that's the last we'll hear of the model home. Hence, the episode's title.
Sandy welcomes the Cohen family plus Ryan to the dinner table, referring to it as the "last supper." This elicits the same annoyed face from Kirsten that Ryan's comment did seconds ago, and he responds with the same apologetic "Bad joke." Because they're the same! They're the same! They're the same! And if you haven't picked up on the subtle hints yet, I'll just come right out and say it for you: they're the same! Kirsten snits that it's "just a laugh riot around here," and Ryan attempts to lighten the mood by admiring the food. Seth -- who, by the way is wearing a striped shirt he borrowed from the neighborhood four-year-old, and which, of course, looks adorable on him -- laments that Ryan is leaving, because they don't usually eat this well. Kirsten pissily claims that she "cook[s] all the time," causing Seth to call on his father for backup, which Sandy provides with apologies to Kirsten. The men snicker, as Kirsten concedes that they should just eat. They're not done with the joke, though, as Sandy points out that no one is suggesting she should cook more, and Seth recalls "the meatloaf incident of '98." Kirsten rushes to correct him, claiming it was brisket, and I don't know how that's better: either your meatloaf is bad, or your brisket is so bad it's unidentifiable. Seth is on the same track: "Yeah. That's my point, exactly." Ryan witnesses this light-hearted exchange in amusement with a fork stuck in the side of his mouth, and he and Kirsten share a sweet look. Aw. Ryan continues to look happy and wistful and slightly uncomfortable all at once. Take that, Luke Perry! One raised eyebrow does not an actor make!
