Pamela Anderson will be on Leno. I wonder if a lack of talent acts as a reverse magnet to where they'd have to sit five feet apart or risk throwing each other around the room.
Sully finds his poor lost mom, Irene, sitting in front of a brownstone. She looks lost and sad and helpless. She has a nightgown on. She's holding a little stuffed animal. Between Irene and the little dirty boy, they must have done this week's casting at Sympathetic Subplots 'R' Us. Sully and the nursing home woman help Irene back to the car.
Back at the buryin' field, Bosco is bitching. Ty explains that back in the day, they'd tie a string to your finger and attach it to a bell so that if you were buried alive, you could just ring the bell. That's where the expression "saved by the bell" comes from. I think that's utter bunk, but what do I know? Bosco makes a joke about V-8. Yokas calls him a "sick puppy." Sigh...
Oh, more Sully/coffin escapades. Dirt is being piled on his grave. We get it. He doesn't want to buried alive. Okay. He calls for his mom, and now we learn that it's all symbolic of the pressure he feels for caring for Irene and how he feels buried beneath it. Ahhh.
At the nursing home, Sully is sitting bedside. He gets very emotional and cries because he doesn't know how to take care of his mother, who is afflicted with Alzheimer's. The sad piano plays. The nursing home woman says it would be too difficult for Sully to take Irene home. She seems impressed that he's even there. Oh, poor Sully. Don't you just want to put Sully in your oversized pocket, take him home and give him a big fluffy hug? I want a Sully plush doll. Sully kisses his mom's hand and his mom's cheek. I go grab a phone to call my mom.
The mean doctor from before is acting nicer because he's examining the kid that Kim and Bobby brought in. He says the kid hasn't suffered from abuse, just neglect and a few rat bites. He's like a mini Richard Hatch. Bobby is holding the boy in his arms, and it's like one of those black-and-white prints of a buff male model holding a baby that they sell at college dorm-art sales. They talk about how it sucks to abandon a child, who would do such a thing, on and on. The kid is sleepy, but only because of the dialogue. Bobby talks about how he got separated from his dad after a baseball game once and how he felt so lost. A bit of a stretch there on relating it to your life, Bobby. Kim goes to get coffee while Bobby holds the kid.
