Episode Recap

Kathy has been nominated for a Grammy! But her hard work is certainly not over; with the late George Carlin as competition, Kathy enlists the help of her mother and Team Griffin in calling Grammy voters in order to win. Unfortunately, most of the celebrities don't respond too well to the surprise phone calls.
With a show on the way in Canada, Kathy heads north and finds out that Lily Tomlin will be performing the night before her, so Kathy leaves early to try to meet Lily. At Lily's show, Kathy shouts at the star from the stage, and Lily agrees to be a guest star on the show!
Between many glasses of wine, Kathy and Lily call Maggie, Liza Minnelli, and Jane Fonda! They also practice cheerleading and Lily dishes on the I Heart Huckabees meltdown. However, Kathy's stay in Canada is made very strange by the hotel manager, Howard, who continuously "cock blocks" Kathy and Lily Tomlin. Though trying to make her feel A-list, Kathy wonders if Howard's persistence is just making her feel more D-list than ever!
