Then Lucy calls a realtor on Tricia’s behalf. You’re a freaking babysitter, not a PA! And didn’t Tricia tell you last week she doesn’t need a realtor?
Back to the Margolis house, where Cindy has a talk with Kristin. Nicholas has been wanting a “manny”. After asking “is this you trying to replace me?” (answer: you bet your ass it is!) Kristin says something about doing more outdoor stuff with him. Not the issue, honey. By the way, Nicholas has expressed this by shoving notes under Cindy’s bedroom door. Apparently he’s more comfortable with that than speaking with his mother. No issues there!
Justin and Ashley meet, and he shares he thinks he has the job with Lindsay Faulk. He thinks Ashley would be the perfect fit for Heifer. I think Justin is diabolical.
For her part, Ashley thinks she can handle Heifer because Ashley has experience with newborns. Honey, the kid isn’t the problem in that home!
You’ll love it. Really! So long as you’re not lactose-intolerant.
They also bad-mouth Amber and agree she got the job with Ari because Amber is not blonde. Justin then gets a text from Lindsay, saying she’ll make her decision on Monday. Oooh suspense. Not.
Back to the Margolis house, where Nicholas is telling Kristin he feels left out (this kid is sharp!) and she’s asking if more play dates would help. Grow a d-ck. That’s the only thing that will help.
At the Tree House, a band is playing a song with the scintillating lyric “Welcome to the Tree House”. Is that the Stones? Sadly, no. Lucy is goofing around near the band. Tricia then takes the opportunity to talk to Lucy. Lucy’s first remark is “Am I getting grounded right now? I’m scared”. Really? Are you 6?
Tricia tries to explain what the problem is. Way more tactfully than I could manage, she tells Lucy to let Tricia call the shots. Don’t help unless asked. Don’t set up real estate broker lunches. At this point, Lucy says the immortal phrase “I was just trying to help”. Road to hell, Lucy. Road. To. Hell.
Tricia goes on to say that the kind of help she wants is help with her kid. She says she feels like “you’re doing a vaudeville act and I’m loaning you my baby for it”. Oh snap! Lucy shares she’s shocked – no one else has ever told her that. Lucy, have you ever wondered why no one keeps you, like your trial family of 2 weeks ago? Hello?
Tricia then says that expecting Curtis to come to the party – even asking if he can – is not respecting the boundaries between employer and employee. It’s inappropriate. Lucy says she “forgot I just met you” – again, not the point – this is your boss, not your BFF! – and that she’s happy Tricia talked to her so she can correct things.
Tricia shares she’s not sure if Lucy heard her. Spoiler alert . . .
