OK, first thing's first. Tish didn't reveal the truth about which child was not Tripp's. That really ticks me off. However, did you catch Tish's expression when Tripp brought up the twins and called them "different"? Priceless.
Dirty Sexy Money mixes it up again.
Also, it's official: I love the twins. They fought over their birthday party and found that $1 million was not enough to split. This should be my problem. Juliet's Marie Antoinette birthday party was almost as over-the-top as Jeremy's party on the Brooklyn Bridge. The expression she had on her face when she talked about kissing that good-looking boy was hilarious. I hope she never gets Botox. And once she saw him kissing another girl, she cried, "Let them eat cake." Jeremy was off his rocker, weaving along nearly naked on the Brooklyn Bridge singing "All By Myself." He wins the craziest-twin award this week. He's a terrible singer! But it was so sad. I'm happy that Jeremy gave Natalie the boot. Juliet said it best: "You and Natalie together was like drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth."
Excellent lines, although it was all in the delivery:
"Jet fuel doesn't grow on trees."
"It's a lot of money for two ants."
"OK, note to self, 'crush her.'"
Boy, Karen's true colors are finally showing. Since she got told off by Lisa last week, she needs a new place to toss her rage, so she chose to pick on her brother, Patrick. She is the one we're going to love to hate. She has started playing hardball. And I love it.
When Brian Jr. finally broke down and told his stepmom the truth ("Yeah, about that my name's not Gustav"), I snickered. That kid is not only cute, but a good little actor. And Mei Ling Hwa confronted Brian. I was amazed that he was that honest with his wife about his son and his relationship with Brian Jr.'s mother. Brian begged his wife to forgive him and she told him she wants a divorce. I couldn't believe it when Brian broke down in front of Nick. He's been such a schmuck to Nick and then when something really hit him hard, he turned to Nick for advice. It was very - how should I put this? - brotherly.
Brian's best line: "I'm sorry I called you, Mr. Perfect. You are kind of insufferable with your happiness, though."
Brian was actually distraught at the idea that his marriage might break up. I think he really took the children's Bible story about honesty to heart. When he asked Mei Ling Hwa to let him come back to her, it was touching. He had made that comment earlier with Karen that her several marriages sort of make the institution of marriage a sham. So his wife kicked him out of their house, and he was broken-hearted about it. But he got to move back in with his parents, so it's not like he will be suffering too much.
Tripp was very hard on Jeremy, but Nick was fantastic. He was honest and straightforward: "I'm here to tell you what's wrong." It's great that Nick is taking this role of advising Tripp and the rest of the brood. He's not just their lawyer, but sometimes he's the only voice of reason in a family full of spoiled children.
Sutherland was nothing short of brilliant again in that scene.
Seth Gabel, he was the breakout star of the ep. He got to cover a range of emotions and he did it excellently.
Nick finally met Simon Elder, who thinks he and Nick are "cut from the same cloth." Another familial reference. Someday we'll find out who's actually related. Simon made $100 million his first year in American after having grown up poor in Russia. A little far-reaching as reality, but then this show isn't exactly about any reality I've ever known.
Once again, though, Dutch's legacy lives on through all these other people and Nick continues to find out things about his father he never knew when he was alive. Simon is going to lead Nick somewhere. Not sure where, but this should be interesting.
Based on Simon's encouraging advice, Nick stepped out of the nest and finally started spending Tripp's money. First he bought the ants for his wife and then he gave away the lump of cash to the playground people.
I hate when this show ends, because I could watch several hours of it at a time. Since we don't get to make the rules about how long
Dirty Sexy Money is on each week, we'll just have to check out the
Online Video Guide to help get us through the week.
