Ryan arrives to pick up Bentley at Maci’s place. Bentley hands him a worksheet that he colored and when Maci says, “Tell him what number it is!” Ryan responds, “Twenty!” Bwahahaha! I love that he’s all impressed he knows his numbers. Ryan decides it’s prudent to say, “You don’t like preschool do you? You didn’t learn anything did you?” Good thing Bentley bursts his bubble telling him how much fun he had.
HA! You didn’t think I knew that. Well, I’ll have you know that I can count all the way to 69.
Amber’s talking to one of her therapists and telling her that she’s worried about all the people back home who expect the worst from her. When the therapist asks who these people are, instead of saying, “Um, Gary?” she said ex-friends and ex-boyfriends. Because she lives in a small town, it’s perfectly reasonable to worry about that, but I think her focus needs to be on Gary being the opposite of supportive. Sounds like she needs to move. When she says goodbye to the counselor, it sounds like the counselor has zero faith in Amber. I would find that funny except that this is totally screwing up that beautiful little baby.
Amber is in her room “packing”. Packing, for Amber, is taking a pile of miscellaneous clothes and cramming them into her suitcase. No folding. No organizing. Just take a pile of maybe clean/maybe not clothes and scooping them up with the suitcase. This kinda ties in with the PJ pants and slippers thing I mentioned earlier.
I learned this packing technique from an episode of Jersey Shore.
Her mom is at the airport to pick her up and is all weepy seeing Amber. At Amber’s place, her mom has stocked her fridge and pantry, cleaned her laundry and put it away, and set up a little “welcome home” thing. It’s nice to see her mom do that since we know there’s no way Gary would.
Ty takes him mom to the salon for a hair makeover. What a graet idea! I love his mom and the only thing she’s need is a meeting with Clinton and Stacy. While her color sets, Ty’s mom tells him that he needs to lay off Cate about school. She asks him how he feels if she decides she doesn’t want to go to college and he says he can’t be with someone with no goals. Now now, Ty. Not everyone who is successful or has goals graduated from college. The only problem here with Cate, however, is that I don’t think she has the…erm…how can I put this…intellectual strengths to be successful without a secondary education. But, the reality of it is that if you don’t want to do something and you do it anyway, you won’t get anything out of it.
Farrah and Daniel are going horseback riding. For whatever reason, she work a long skirt with a ruffle around the calves, so she had a helluva time getting on the horse without giving everyone a show. This is the first time I’ve seen Farrah acting pleasantly. It’s much less annoying.
