Zoila wants a new vacuum, or maybe it’s an excuse to get out of vacuuming. Jeff reminds her that Lupe doesn’t complain. Lupe was hired to take Zoila’s place while she recovered from cosmetic surgery, but Jeff was impressed with Lupe and offered her a permanent, part time position. Jeff enjoys how much it upsets Zoila that she has competition.
We meet Andrew, the new assistant. Andrew is replacing Sarah and was hired by Jeff because he likes his taste level. He’s in his mid- to late-30s and must keep a full-time job as a stipulation of his trust fund. This works for Jeff because Andrew needs Jeff more than Jeff needs Andrew, and Jeff plans to take advantage of the situation. There’s something about Andrew that I find more annoying than funny, whatever his taste level is.
Hey, you guys. Where did everybody go?
Gage and Jeff can’t resist playing a joke on Andrew. They turned on a light, and when Jeff sends Andrew in the pantry to turn it off, Gage grabbed his hand causing Andrew to nearly pee in his pants. Jeff’s right comparing working at Jeff Lewis Designs to pledging a fraternity, and it’s Hell Week…every week.
It’s a good thing he didn’t have a second cup of coffee.
Jeff is reading emails while driving, depending upon Jenni to tell him when the lights change to green. He shushes her when she talks about the wedding planning. Of course, this will only make Jenni talk about it more.
Andrew has been stationed to babysit at Spring Oak since they are rushing to get the home ready for the owners’ arrival. Jeff has a great eye for details while Andrew has great panicking skills. Spring Oak has been a long remodel, including the firing of the original contractor. The new contractor has worked well and Spring Oak should be liveable for the owners in a couple of days.
Damn you, IKEA!
Watching Andrew drop a wet vac down the stairs and make a mess was annoying enough that I would be tempted to push him every time I saw him near stairs. Is that wrong?

Jeff plans to get a generator for Gramercy since there are rolling blackouts. Those things are huge, and the space is tight, so Jeff is thinking a helicopter might be a good way to get it in place. Speaking of its place, Jeff and Gage disagree about where it should be located. Jeff is strong-willed and it will be in a convenient location to install it. Gage doesn’t think the generator is a good idea, so he’s not making it a high priority. I agree with Jeff on this one, but his hair is distracting me. It looks like it might be a wig or hair piece, or whatever it’s called. Man hair? Bro wig?
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
