Irish American Magazine gives Kathy an award for being one of the hottest Irish Americans of the year! She shows up at a gathering in New York to accept the award, and desperately tries to meet one of the other guests - Hillary Clinton! Unfortunately, Kathy has no success outsmarting the Secret Service, so she has to settle for waving at Hillary, and then trying to nonchalantly walk in front of her photographed moments.
Next up, Kathy has a big date with rocker Andrew W.K. Before their date, Kathy watches his lecture, which she fies as performance art, because she does not know exactly what is happening. Luckily, the guy next to her seems to enjoy the show.
Finally, she is offered a trip to Ireland for her award, and gleefully accepts. Maggie calls Kathy aside in private to see if Kathy will scatter some of her dad's ashes in Ireland, and Kathy agrees. Kathy and Team Griffin head to the land of the Irish, and toast Kathy's father in one of his favorite pubs. They each share a memory of John, and scatter his ashes.
After such a rough year, Kathy is glad to have the support of "the best friends money can buy."
