"So, you two... you two guys, you're... together now?" Kirkland fumbled, still unable to look either his father or his aunt in the eye.

"No," Marley shook her head.

"Yes," Grant nodded at the same time.

"Well, that certainly clears things up," Amanda helpfully chirped from her corner of the room, drawing resultant, scathing looks from both.

"You know, you don't need to stay," Grant, equally helpful, notified his ex-wife. "I can drive Kirkland home when he's ready."

At the sound of Grant's offer, Kirkland jumped from the sofa like a rocket. "Actually, I gotta get going. I just wanted to drop by and give you this." He passed a wrapped gift to his dad. "Father's Day and... stuff."

"Thank you," Grant only had a moment to savor the tenderness triggered by Kirkland's remembering him like this, before his son bolted for the door.

Marley, seeing Grant's face fall, called out, "Wait, Kirkland, please. Look, your father and I..." she grimaced and rephrased, "Grant and I, we have been seeing each other. It's all still so new and very, very unexpected, believe me.... I — we both are so sorry that you had to find out the way you did. We never meant to hide or... We just wanted to wait to tell you until we had a better idea of where things were going."

"So where are things going?" Kirkland asked reasonably.


Jamie makes Lorna an offer - and a suggestion, Allie recruits another couple to Gregory's cause, and Sharlene comes face to face with Donna... at John's.
