Our bankruptcy was about all the flowers we planted and puppies we rescued.
Ter interrupts to say she can address her own bankruptcy, thanks, but Caro interjects over that to tell her that “the man asked her a question” and if she’s not going to let people talk, they may as well go home. “I’m hungry,” she quips and everyone guffaws. Oh, that Caroline and her zingers!
“So go home,” Ter snaps back while Andy silently signals to the guy with the tranquilizer gun pointed at the back of Ter’s head.
The focus turns back to Jacquee’s fairy tale bankruptcy, which she informs us she will tweet the results of as soon as it’s resolved. Now Andy wants to know if Jacquee’s a “twitter-holic”. Wouldn’t the correct designation be “tweet-a-holic”? Jacquee agrees that she does tweet every stupid thought that comes into her head. Everyone else agrees that Jacquee mostly comes off like she’s crazy on twitter.
Do you tweet about Teresa, Andy asks. “I have, yeah,” she says, because I guess there’s no way to lie about that one. “All year long,” says Ter. Well, from what little I’ve seen, the Ter/Jacquee communication seems to be mostly Jacquee freaking out about things and Ter being like “I don’t know what you’re talking about”. It did seem like Ter was leaving it alone…at least online. According to Jacquee, she was doing plenty of sneaky talking behind everyone’s back.
Ter calls her a liar, then Mel points out that in Ter’s world, everyone’s a liar but her. Mel holds up her hands in innocence and tells the world “I own up to every single thing I’ve ever done”.
Except bikini dancing. Not owning up to that.
Ter accuses Mel of always chirping in Midge’s ear, “your sister did this, your sister did that”, and the truth is, we do see a lot of that. Even at the Posche fashion show – before Midge even was fully told what happened, he was told it was Ter’s fault. Ter accuses Mel of tweeting a picture of one of her kids with Ter’s Dad. The child’s Grandfather.
According to Ter, this proves “my brother’s her crutch”. Mel accuses Ter of unnecessarily bringing her parents into it, and then tells her Midge is not her crutch, he’s her husband. Gosh, will no one give these two crazy kids living on love in their scrap marble mansion a chance?
Then it’s weepy time. We relive Jacquee’s fertility struggle, and the birth of Nick, “the miracle baby”. He’s a cute baby and a cute kid. Jacquee and Caro have teary smiles for this part. So as we now know, Nick has been diagnosed with autism, and apparently has regressed so that he barely speaks. This is common, Jacquee has been told. The film shows him saying “I love you” to Jacquee, which causes her to break down completely because Nick no longer says that.
