Frank gestures to a very tall floor lamp with an Arco-style shade in Jason's bedroom, saying they may use that in the living room. Frank thinks it's too good to be in his bedroom. Robin says his family sent that to him from Pennsylvania, and that he would love it if it were used. Frank says he thinks that since Jason hasn't even unpacked, he doubts that very many people see this bedroom: "If you get my drift." Frank, people who've been dead since Christ was in short pants got your drift. Robin gestures to the mess of decorating stuff and says, "This bedroom has never seen so much action as in the past day, I'm telling you." Ah, what are friends for, but to wreck your home and embarrass you on national television?
Ty continues struggling with the mess he's creating while Gen sort of holds on to the tarp and laughs, "I hate this show. I hate my job." Ty: "It's like M.A.S.H. 4077 in here!" Yes, it's exactly like that. Shut up, Ty. You're no Alan Alda, my friend. You're not even Gary Burghoff. You might have a shot at Jamie Farr, who worked the same shtick into the ground for years. Put on a dress and we'll talk. Gen asks what the piece on the table is. Ty says it's the top of her entertainment bench. Gen, unenthusiastically: "Great!" The bumper to the commercial features MPDP wearing the luchadore mask.
Frank's team is starting on the ceiling as Frank paints the fireplace.
Gen and Michelle work on repotting the orchids. Gen leans over to pick up a bag of soil, giving everyone a real good look at her dinners. She says she's recently learned, after making many mistakes, that orchids require special soil. Gen: "Did you know this?" Michelle: "Yeah, I have a black thumb, so..." Gen: "How long have you had yours?" Michelle, puzzled: "Uh...I've never had a green one..." Gen giggles: "You've never had one?" I guess Gen thinks a "black thumb" is a plant. Or maybe she thinks it's some kind of special gadget that dispenses horticultural wisdom, I don't know. What am I to make of this exchange? Shut up, Gen.
