Key swap. MPDP wonders if the HOs' perkiness will relieve her of her responsibilities on that front.
Bill and Becky find Gen on Jacob's bed under a big orange, black, and white Philadelphia Flyers...something. Towel? Blanket? Oh, who cares? It's got a sports logo on it! Gen -- who looks very cute (if not task-appropriate) in a black shirt and light grey glen plaid kickpleated skirt -- wants to do a fun, playful, whimsical, but cool room. Gen blathers on as Bill and Becky nod; Gen tells them that they're going to use greens and a racing stripe, and that there will be a huge new bed and new curtains and lighting. Gen mentions that Becky's a graphic designer too, so that will be helpful. They empty the room. MPDP dances around with the top half of SpongeBob on her. It's SpongeMip TightPants!
Chris and Betsy charge into their neighbours' house, Chris barking, "Vern! Vern! Vern! Vern! Vern!" They find Vern perched on one of the red chairs, saying he feels very underdressed for this space. (He's wearing a t-shirt and shorts.) He finds it a "little formal." About the only thing missing is doilies and antimacassars. Betsy says that they want to see the room become more casual and conducive to "after-dinner fun." ["I hope that isn't some new euphemism for swinging." -- Wing Chun] Vern says that they're going to create a "dynamic environment for adults." He says that they're going to recover the sofa, reuse the coffee table, give Bill and Becky a dynamic ceiling treatment, add new seating and a bar space, put up new window treatments, and paint the walls. They unload the room
Gen reveals her paints: white and black for a horizontal racing stripe around the room. The wall colour is an acid green. Or spring green, or leaf green, or chartreuse, or pea green, depending on your perception. A very vibrant, yellowy-green. I like it.
Vern's got a warm yellow for his walls -- like melted butter. Nice.
Gen agrees that the paint colour is "pea soup" and insists that it's lovely. I think pea soup is a muddier green than this, but whatever. Gen says that Jacob loves green. She's also got a quart of Pylon Orange, or maybe Flyers Orange would be more to the point. She says that maybe they're going to paint the shelves that colour. She says that the orange will come into the room in subtle punches.
Vern shows his team a rich red paint. Betsy gasps, "Oh, my gosh!" Frink can't get over the way people enthuse over the paint colours they like. He calls it "paintgasm." Vern says that they'll be painting the new entertainment centre that colour, and that it's going on the ceiling as well, where they've taped off a rectangle in the centre, with perhaps an eighteen-inch border between it and the crown molding.
