Ty's playing guitar. No, I don't know why. It must be part of his ongoing efforts to demonstrate how versatile and multitalented he is. He says he's just taking a little musical break. Stacey comes along to help him with the bench/coffee table. Ty explains his creative modification of the original bench style to Stacey, who pretends to care. Frink: "I'm sure Frank appreciates it." I tell him, "No, he's making that for Doug." Frink: "That's what I mean."
Frank and Michelle glue burgundy cording and beads to the brown lampshade.
Ty tells Stacey about all the things they have to glue and screw.
Frank teaches Jody how to stuff batting into a pillow. He shows Jody how to pull apart and fluff the batting before stuffing it. Frank: "It's like carding wool." Carding wool? Dude, if he doesn't have a clue how to stuff a pillowcase, I don't think the "wool carding" analogy is going to have much power for him.
Ty blathers on about the bench to Stacey as she attempts to put screws into the bench. Ty ribs her about taking her time since they're already behind and it's Day Two.
Frank explains to Jody that they have to sew the cushions closed by hand. It's news to Jody.
Doug brings Stacey and Chris into what is probably their neighbours' living room or family room. The lodgepole entertainment unit is there, as is their other furniture: sofa, orangey-toned wood armoire, etc. Doug says they don't have the money or time to put into an om-wah for the seating area in the bedroom. He gestures to the lodgepole piece, saying they have to get rid of it and it's firewood: "'All I see,' as somebody said to me once in an episode, 'I see a bunch of firewood.'" Hee. I really need to make a macro just for the Crying Pam link, since I have to use it in every other recap. They agree they're not going to use that thing. Doug gestures to the armoire, calling it "Choice B."
MPDP watches as Frank applies (in gold) a stencil he describes as "very sort of Indian" to the navy blue valances. He's applying it in wide vertical bands at regular intervals. MPDP, looking at the bottle of paint, wonders if they can still be cleaned. Frank says they can't be dry-cleaned, but they can be washed.
