She tries to explain to Sophia why she’s sending her packing back to Iowa, which a) I’m sure Sophia totally understands, and b) doesn’t truly get you off the hook for being an asshole. She’s apparently taking bartending classes. She’ll be a horrible bartender. Bartenders are people-people. They know how to interact well with others, whether they’re dry-witted, sweet, or curmudgeonly.
Amber arrives at Gary’s house while Leah is at daycare. Amber does what she does best, which is plop onto the couch and wrap up in a blanket. Gary tells her Leah wouldn’t stop crying last night and Amber says it broke her heart. Not enough, I guess. Gary says that if he gets custody of Leah, then CPS will drop the no-contact order. Hopefully Amber won’t fight this, of course, we all know it doesn’t matter seeing as how she’s currently chilling in the joint with the rest of the Cholas.
Back at the house that manipulation built, Ryan finally calls Maci back. Bentley asks him to come to his birthday party and bring along Dalis. Ryan says he’ll see what he can do, but immediately texts Maci and says that he won’t be there at 6 for the party, but will show at 7 to pick him up. Maci’s an asshole for setting this whole thing up, but Ryan’s an asshole for not dropping whatever hick plans he has to spend time with his son. My God, I hate these two so very much.
Cate and Ty meet up with April to see if she’ll go meet up with Dawn along with Kim. April tells them she hasn’t talked to or written Butch at all since he went back into the clink. They’re all kinda’ done with Butch, which is fine by me. Ty tells April about how Kim’s feeling and that they’re going to have Dawn talk to her. April says she’ll go, but that she feels bad that she was really mean to Dawn before.
Farrah is getting Sophia packed up to go back to her “abusive” parents. Sophia starts jumping up and down on the trampoline and winds up peeing her pants, which made me laugh out loud. I’d probably pee my pants after jumping on a trampoline, too, and I’m basically fully potty trained. She asks Sophia if she’ll need her paci. How about not asking her and just “forgetting to pack it”?
Because Ryan bailed out on the birthday party, his parents decided not to come either. That’s kinda’ silly, but whatever. Maci lies and tells her mom that Ryan told Bentley he was coming, but texted her he wasn’t. He never said he was coming, but he’s still an asshole. Maci says that his mom texted her later and said to just tell Bentley she’ll see him afterwards. That’s nice, Grandma. You can’t call the kid and tell him yourself? Are you really that attached, umbilical-ly, to your son that you can’t go to the birthday party without him?
Maci keeps saying that she’s glad that Bentley’s not asking for Ryan or his other set of grandparents while Kyle’s eyes are rolling in his head like a slot machine.
Gee, I wonder why they broke up?
