  • Episode Description
  • Now that they are planning to move in together, Caroline and Trevor hold a rummage sale on Caroline's doorstep, but she can't bear to part with her things and winds up buying them back at a loss. All she manages to sell is Del's softball glove, which he needs because he is helping Charlie coach a Little League team; this surprises everyone until they meet Monica, the attractive mother of one of the boys. Meanwhile, planning to spend the summer in Spain, Richard and Julia throw themselves a bon voyage party (described by Caroline as a "Eurotrash compacter"). While Julia shops, a distracted Richard is indifferent to the cook's "perfect Bernaise sauce," so the indignant chef quits (and Remo gets the job on two hours' notice, with the new waitress from his restaurant as staff). Julia has celebrated by buying herself a flashy new diamond bracelet; and during the party, when Caroline and Annie sneak into the en suite bathroom, they accidentally overhear a man with a distinctive laugh making love to a woman - a woman wearing a flashy diamond bracelet. Canvassing the men at the party with silly jokes, they discover the laugh belongs to José the arrogant bullfighter. Next day Richard tells Julia he's uncomfortable with her snotty friends and won't be going to Spain with her, and she is surprisingly reasonable about going alone. Caroline comes by as arranged to water the plants, and Richard walks in on her enjoying the king-size bathtub; assuming he knows the worst, Caroline commiserates and spills the beans. A furious Richard rushes off to Spain to confront Julia.moreless
