Storyline

Harold Mossback falls asleep but doesn't wake up on a bus tour in Seattle, where his kids hire the Fishers but insist he should transported by land back from LA since he feared flying in life. Unable to get any transportation services, Nate chooses to fly to Seattle and stay at his ex-roommate Lisa Kemmel's, then transport him by rental-car, offering to take Claire along for the ride (and to help drive). David is stuck sitting Taylor for Keith when he's stuck on assignment for several hours, annoying Rico and causing Ruth, now trying to contact old friends and estranged relatives to discuss their relationships, to remind him he shouldn't be too candid on his gayness with a child still "developing her blueprints"...until David advises her to mind her own business and drop the metaphors. Brenda, still fantasizing of seeing other, preferably dangerous and exciting, men, is called to be with her mother in an "emergency", only to discover she wanted attention as she stalks then attacks a ...

Quotes

Margaret Chenowith: [her and Bern's rules for having sex with others] You can't fuck my friends, I can't fuck yours. No fucking of mutual friends. Never in Hawaii. Never in a hotel that costs more than $300 a night. And never in a hotel that's under $75 a night. Not on holidays. And there are others, I just can't remember all of them at the moment.

Knowing Each Other
11 October 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When Mr. Harold Mossback dies in a bus tour in Seattle, the Fishers are hired by his son and daughter for the funeral service and for bringing the body to Los Angeles by van, since Mr. Mossback was afraid to fly by plane. Lane invites Claire to go with him, and they spend a couple of days with Lisa (Lily Taylor), the former roommate of Nate. Brenda is called by her dysfunctional mother to go to the Tranquility Spa, and once there, Brenda finds that she actually wants to snoopy the mistress of her husband. Ruth unsuccessfully tries to renewal her old friendships and get close to her sons and daughter. David brings Keith's niece for babysitting while Keith is assigned in a situation.

In this episode, we see Ruth deeply evolved trying to be successful in the renewal of friendships. Nate disclosing his AVM to his friend Lisa and being comforted by her, who is still in deep love for him, and Claire and Nate knowing each other better. Brenda once again shows her family problems and why she is so disturbed. My vote is eight.
