Gen tells her team to "get over here" for the paint reveal. Looks like plain old white to me. I can hardly contain my excitement. Jason says it's so much better.
Frank has four cans of paint. Well, it's better than nine, or thirteen. He paints some taupe on the fireplace. I like the taupe. He's got some black, or maybe it's a really dark navy, for accents on the fireplace, including these two chunky shelves with oddly ornate brackets. Josh asks if it's black. Frank: "Yes. Sort of."
Gen says she has another green which they "may" use for the woodwork, saying that since it's been painted numerous times already, she doesn't feel bad about painting it again. She opens a gallon of chartreuse paint. Bleah. I'm not crazy about the "whitish walls with extreme trim" look. I got over that in my early twenties. Gen says they can decide after they paint the walls.
Frank has two shades of light sky blue: one for the walls, and a slightly lighter shade for the ceiling above the picture rail. These shades of blue are a little too sweet for me, and I don't like them with the taupe. Frank says that the colours are very conservative, and asks Josh and Robin if they think the colours are "too pastel-y." Josh says it will look like the sky when one looks up at the ceiling. They agree that that's very California. In the bumper to the commercial, MPDP falls down and goes boom.
Y'all don't mind if I just stop here and listen to Kiefer Sutherland's voice on this telecom commercial over and over, do you? It's a lot less tiresome than this episode. You just go on ahead without me. I'll catch up.
Gen comes skipping out through the rain and puddles in her bare feet to the tarp-covered area where Ty is trying to work. He's using a board to poke at the sags in the "roof" and knock the accumulated water off. Gen says it's like a little shantytown. She jumps up and down, giving the girls a good bounce. Careful, there. You could put someone's eye out with those. Maybe I should have called her "Jiggles" instead of "Giggles." She wants to talk about her carpentry plans. Ty picks them up. They're rather damp.
MPDP checks out Frank's colours while his team paints.
Gen wants two big tables. She's sick of armoire-style entertainment centres. She wants what she calls a "low-rider" -- seven feet long, fourteen inches high. She also wants a dining-room table that will match the style of entertainment unit.
MPDP asks how Frank's doing on budget. He says they're so far over, it's scary. MPDP doesn't react to this at all, so Frank rants that it feels good to be over, and that he's getting a surge of power from it. He says he'll try to shave something off, but if he doesn't, whatever. He snaps his fingers and waves his arm dismissively. Robin says to MPDP, "Well, he told you, sister!"
