Of course that doesn’t stop Ter from prattling on and on about how disappointed she is with the locale, and how she thought it would be more plush. She thought they would be on an island. She continues to insult the parking lot folk.
Over at Kat’s, Lebanese Dilbert is doing some work and everyone is shocked. Apparently, no one’s ever seen him do anything besides shop all day. Well, yeah, the life of a gas station mogul. Dilbert informs the group that he does not look at this vacation as relaxing, but as work.
Ter, wandering back from starting a bloodfeud with the neighbors, overhears him and heartily agrees. They’re thrilled to agree on something, even if it is that they both hate parking lot camping.
Kat is all over the moment of bonding. She tells Dilbert it’s a good start. And there’s Ter on the Wakile RV. Dilbert leaves them to chat, with the admonishment that they better get along. Kat says not to worry, they’re big girls.
Also, they have this.
But now that Ter’s been warming up with the neighbors, she’s not in the mood to get drunk and be cuddly with Kat. She wants to talk about the book signing and how Kat took credit for the pizelles. Kat wants to play word games. “Is that what I said? Did I say my Mom’s recipes or my Mom’s pizelles?” she asks Ter smoothly. Who cares? Given Teresa’s tenuous grip on the English language does it really make a difference?
So they debate over whether she said “recipe” or “pizelle”. Then Kat changes tactics. “They shared recipes,” she says soothingly, even though in my opinion, Kat was totally baiting Ter with those comments. She makes enough noise behind Ter’s back about how all the recipes are family recipes, and I agree with Ter that this was Kat’s passive aggressive way of saying it, but not saying it.
But Kat does congratulate Ter on speaking up about it, rather than just holding a lifelong grudge. Which she will hopefully still do anyway. And now, feeling all high and mighty and in control, Kat dares to mention that she knows Ter is on the outs with Caro and Jacquee. Ter does not look thrilled with this turn of the conversation.
How’s about we go back to how you stole my mother’s recipes.
“You and Jacqueline and you and Caroline,” reminds Kat. Ter says that she didn’t care so much about Caro, but was sad about Jacquee. Kat says they should make up. Ter says that her family is healthy and she has four beautiful daughters and that’s what matters.
The Bravo fakeout concerns the pitching up of the tent. Everyone assumes that since the Brown Smurf and Midge build houses for a living, a tent should be no big deal. Smurfy naturally has a million excuses for why he can’t get this tent together. I’m sure he could manage to install a chandelier and pave a marble driveway from the bus to the tent, though.
