MPDP tells Gen and her team that they've got some scary colours going on. Becky expresses some reservation about the colour. Gen insists that it has to be a bright, spring green.
As they paint, Betsy asks Chris what colour he thinks Jacob's room will be. Chris thinks anything but pink would be fantastic. Betsy thinks it will be red, blue, and yellow. They're happy about the yellow they're painting, since they think Becky will like it a lot and that it will brighten up the room.
Gen explains that they're going to build a low platform, which she calls a stage, in the "nook" area and sink two double beds into it.
Vern discusses carpentry with Amy Wynn. He wants her to build a piece, which will be flanked by two ready-made pieces he's bought, all of which together will create a bar/entertainment unit.
Gen continues explaining that the stage will be covered in black carpet, and that there will be a big white curtain that will separate the sleep area from the play area, so that if Jacob's brothers want to play and Jacob wants privacy, he can have that.
Vern wants Amy Wynn to make a low central unit that will go between the two taller cabinets he 's already bought, to form a sort of bar surface. Vern says he's going to be doing a specialty finish on the doors, so if there's any way he could get those soon, that would rock. He'd like to have the cabinet by the end of the day so that they could do it for homework. Amy Wynn doesn't see why not.
Gen is painting. The observant viewer will note that she has one foot in the paint tray. Bill says, "Hey, Gen..." Gen: "I know, I know. I know, I know, I know!" She giggles and says she didn't want to make a scene out of it. Isn't it sort of her job to make a scene out of every little thing? She says she was trying to seem professional. Well, hope springs eternal. While Bill wipes up her foot with some paper towel, she turns to the camera and says pointedly, "This is why I don't wear shoes." Frink: "Other people just don't step in the paint." He's such a Vulcan about these things.
Chris starts rolling the red paint on the ceiling. Chris and Betsy think it's going to be phenomenal.
Gen's all excited to do the carpentry scene with Amy Wynn, but Amy Wynn's all business. Gen explains that she wants the room to be two levels; the platform will be a foot off the floor.
Vern, Betsy, and MPDP are working on the coffee table, which they are going to cover with Italian glass mosaic tiles in cream, copper, and brown colours. Vern has 1,244 of them and he has divided them equally into four quadrants. As he expounds on what he calls "calculated randomness," MPDP makes googly eyes at one tile and says, "This one has glitter." Thanks, Mindy. Vern and MPDP laugh about the "calculated randomness" as Betsy wonders how much all this is going to cost. Vern says that it will be about $75-$80.
