Gerald's installing the new light fixture, which is a small white rectangular shade that hangs down from the ceiling vertically. Laurie talks about how she thinks things happen for a reason, and that she actually likes this light fixture better. She promises that she didn't drop this one on purpose. She goes to turn it on as Gerald spreads his hands and says, "Let there be light!" Laurie "woohoo"s in the background.
And it's time to wrap it up; during this sequence we see John painting the pie unit as Veronica is stacking books in it. It's been a while since I saw anything like that on the show. MPDP announces time's up as she pokes a plastic flamingo on the nose. "Will John and Veronica like the tranquility of their new living room? Will Gerald and Ann say 'Oh, yes!' or 'Oh, no!' to all those Os in their family room?"
Laurie's room is first. The walls are a soft, cool yellow. The ceiling has a large, rectangular area painted the brownish-orange acorn colour, edge in narrow molding. The new white rectangular light fixture has replaced the ceiling fan. The room has been divided into two areas. At the far end, a closet has been built out from the wall, about eight feet wide and two feet deep. There are four sliding closet doors on the front, though from how much they overlap, it looks to me like they could have gotten away with just three. The TV is in there. The doors are painted an ivory or cream colour, which clashes with the stark white of the two doors nearby that probably lead to bedrooms. The tubular black futon frame is the same colour, and the futon's been slipcovered in brownish-orange fabric. There are cushions on it, including one in the "inspiration fabric." The futon has been placed opposite the TV closet. In front of that are two small square black coffee tables pushed together; they look like the Lack tables from IKEA. There are two new wood frame cantilevered side chairs with rattan seats; I believe they're IKEA's Öland chairs. Each one has a cushion in the "inspiration fabric." They're placed at angles facing the sofa. One of them is right in the traffic path that leads through the room and to the hallway beyond. It really doesn't look like there's enough room to get past it without moving it out of the way, either. Sure, it's all symmetrical and looks nice, but it's never going to be able to stay like that. What a total pain in the ass that would be.
