Lucien (the son of Crystal and Naim) pretends to sketch Eva at Bonnie's Christmas dinner.
the lovebirds back from Europe (Al and Hannah)
Al makes a point. Hannah listens
Naim pontificates while Crystal listens. he mentioned he was tired. last night he and Crystal missed going to bed because one of them put on a Prince album and they danced into the night. Peut etre Lucien had to put himself to bed.

Thank God she found new sunglasses so she could meld back into the wall (I dont think so)
