Cleared for Take-Off...Oh, Never Mind. Or, Yes Now. What?
McLovin: I was supposed to leave for Afghanistan on Sunday.
Kate: How are you telling me this now?
McLovin: Well, they said be prepared. And I didn't want to get you or the children all wound up again, so I waited. And then this morning, I got the e-mail that said I had country clearance. So I was picking up the phone to call you and then my boss came in and said, 'Never mind. They have all this stuff happening and don't need you to get on a plane on Sunday.' Anyway, I knew something would come up, so I didn't tell you. Well, until now.
Kate: Are you f**king kidding me? So, if you HAD had to go, it would be in like 24 hours?
McLovin: Well, yeah. But I didn't have to go, see? So I didn't get you wound up for nothing.
Then I turned on the lights. Mostly because I was pissed. And, hello? WOUND UP!
Kate: [thisclose to punching her husband, and wishing it was still dark so he wouldn't expect it] It's super, baby. That's an awesome plan.
Am I missing something here? I know I turn into Crazy McWhiner when he's planning on going and all...but seriously? His master plan to rescue Crazy Kate is to turn her into Oblivious Kate? And then drop "ohheybytheway,I'mgoingtoAfghanistan..." seventeen minutes before the cab arrives.
They were just planning on going for lunch.
But I do have one request:
