Cut to Hildi, revealing a can of black paint. Scott and Debbie are somewhat thrown. Hildi gleefully lifts the can -- which is black, or wrapped in black paper -- and says, "Just like the can says!" Debbie: "What colour is that? Black?" Man. Nothing gets by her. Scott: "Butt-ugly."
Laurie wants Amy Wynn to make headboard frames which will have padded inserts.
Debbie tells MPDP and Hildi that she was joking with Ellen prior to the show about painting their dining room black. Ha ha! Isn't it weird how stuff like that can come to pass? MPDP puts on a big, fake, forced laugh to emphasize the point. MPDP wants to know if Hildi's telling her team other colours now, or just keeping them in "horrorful" suspense. She struggles for the right word, and she and Scott run through several possibilities containing the pertinent root until they settle on "horrifying."
Laurie wants two open toy boxes.
MPDP asks the members of Hildi's team whether they're feeling like maybe once they see everything in the room, they might like it, or whether they've kissed their friendship goodbye now. Scott: "No, I'm lovin' it." He can't wait to see "Scott's" reaction. Damn it, is the guy's name Newman, or Scott? Anyway, with that attitude, I doubt the guy's going to be very effective in protecting the house. Scott jokes that it might be a good thing if his neighbour doesn't talk to him. Debbie thinks black is going to be very dramatic. God, take the damn outlets off the wall before you paint!
Ellen helps Amy Wynn with the headboards.
Debbie tries to find out the rest of the colour scheme. She says it had better not be pink. MPDP says that they have a lot of demands. She starts to leave, while Hildi comments about being left to handle this on her own. Right, because MPDP should definitely catch guff for it. What? Scott says something about a "monster," but MPDP's talking too, so I can't catch it all.
Amy Wynn shows Ellen how to use the circular saw.
Hildi shows Scott the fabric they're using for the seat cushions; it's white, sparsely printed with black twigs. I don't mind it. It's kind of interesting.
Laurie tells MPDP that they're going to be painting a mural on the wall once they're done with the background colour. MPDP: "Is it gonna be your shirt?" Hee. Everybody's on to you, Laurie! She says she has another inspiration and tells them to be patient. MPDP complains about all the secrecy.
