Last time with the Diffys, Emily died and everyone was upset, Salem came up with a plan to get out of the "organization", and Kim and Jane aged into young adults. This time...
Kim is cuddling the old cat that she grew up with.
Maura: "Everybody get down in the living room!"
Maura: "I really can't tell you until everyone is down here to hear it. It's your father's news, anyway."
Maura: "Of course we are. What side of the bed did you wake up on?"
Kim: "The wrong side!"
Kim: "No pictures of that, please. You'll get us into trouble, Jane."
Jane: "No way!"
Maura: "Your father's company went under."
Salem: "Yes, I suppose you could say that."
Maura: "This is why we need to talk to everyone. We need to know what you two want to do now that you are adults. Now we're obviously not going to have as much money coming in, so we need to figure out how to deal with that."
Kim: "Hmm, I wanted to get a degree in journalism, but I'm not really sure how to do so now."
Maura: "If you're going to university, I want you to focus solely on that, Kim. A job would take away from your studies."
Jane: "I don't want any more school."
Cinnamon Bun: "I'm plenty capable of doing my job yet."
Maura: "You two discuss this. My carpool is here; I have to go."
Kim: "I think it's important work to bring information to people. And I've really liked writing for the school paper."
Kim: "Whoa, really? She didn't even have a degree?"
Cinnamon Bun: "No, she didn't."
Kim: "But she never made it?"
Cinnamon Bun: "The town wasn't really the right place to pursue that kind of thing. It wasn't big enough. And she cared too much for my father to leave."
Kim: "Hmm...being in front of a camera is not so much my thing. I'd like to stick to writing for now."
Kim: "Thanks, Grandad."
Jane: "Dad, you're not stupid..."
Salem: "Smart people can still do stupid things."
Jane: "Aw, I love you Daddy."
Kim: "Now I just have to wait and see if I'm accepted."
Salem: "Yes, everyone agreed that we can't carry on without Carmen. It's too risky."
Kim: "Why does that matter? Creepy old guy..."
Teddy: "Wait, you don't know who I am?"
Thad here has started dating Wendy Smith-something-or-other.
Maura: "Ok Kimmie, just be responsible! You'll do great!"
Salem: "No, I just...I just want it to rain."
Next time: We'll meet up with Kim at university!
