Commercial Break

Kristen is at the office when Julie shows up. Kirsten is on the phone with a client, and Julie is going on and on about all the problems she is having planning her wedding: the caterer wont serve beef due to Mad Cow, the DJ wont play Bob Sieger because he is so over. Kirsten eventually gives up on talking to her client and asks if she can call them back. She then asks Julie how she can help her. Julie asks Kirsten to host her shower for her. Kirsten says she cant host a shower. Julie says she knows it is last minute, but as her maid of honor she was hoping she would. Kirsten asks why she is asking her? Julie says she is her best friend, who else would she ask. Kirsten suggests Marissa. Julie says Marissa isnt speaking to her right now, but Caleb is convinced Marissa will help with it if she will host the shower. Julie says Caleb has already arranged to have it at the club. Kirsten agrees to host it, and Julie is pleased. Julie requests this be a grown up shower, a couples shower, sort of like a cocktail party.

Marissa and Ryan are at the coffee house, and Marissa gets a message on her phone from Caleb asking her to help Kirsten throw a shower for her mom. Marissa cannot believe she has to help plan a couples shower for her mom. Ryan asks Marissa if she has told her dad about moving in with her mom? She says no and shell do it today.

Summer tells her dad that shell see him later. Seth cant believe that is how she talks to her dad. Summer says her dad is her best bud. Seth wonders why he hasnt met her dad; he was beginning to think she was made in a lab or hatched in a pod. Summer says they just havent done the whole family meet and greet, and she has never introduced a boyfriend to her dad. Seth says he has a very non-threatening non-sexual vibe, so there are no worries. Summer eventually agrees to do lunch with his dad.

Marissa says she is fine with it, in fact she is happy for him. Jimmy senses something is up with Marissa.
