Cate's new hair

the scene starts out with Cate in a tracksuit taking something out of the oven and C.J walks in with his robe on. He comments on how beautiful the bathroom is in Cate's room and when Cate asks what he was doing in her room he says he was taking a milk bath. She says 'It was time to do something special'. She says she not only made changes around the house but she also made some personal changes. She says 'You wanna see?' and CJ is unsure if he wants to or not. She takes off her hat and reveals that she dyed her hair. In the next scene Gramps, C.J and Bridget are looking at pictures Bridget printed 

Kitchen scene

from her trip to D.C. Cate enters and looks at some photos. Bridget then exclaims that she wants to go into politics. Gramps notices Cate's hair and says he likes it and Bridget says the grey makes her look distinguished. Cate says it's blonde which Bridget doesn't believe. Rory then enters and he says he's talking to gramma. Gramps calls him over to talk to her and Rory looks nervous. He says 'hi sunshine' and then stops talking. He hands the phone back to Rory and says 'she hung up'. Cate says that Gramps never told them what wrong with them in Florida and Gramps says he doesn't know. Gramps says C.J's been his rock meaning he's been supporting him. Rory then asks what about him since he was the one to get him to quit smoking and Gramps repeats what he said about C.J being his rock. Karry enters and asks if anyone called for her and Rory says a boy called for her. Kerry asks why he didn't tell her and he reply's 'no wait, that was grandma'. Cate then notices Kerry is trying to open a bottle of wine and Kerry says 'what, in France, 10-year-olds drink and smoke'. Cate takes the wine away from her. The phone rings and Kerry jumps out of her seat to grab it. Cate answers it and Bridget asks if she's snapping at Rory (she just snapped at him) because of the boy she met in Europe. Kerry tells her to shut up. Bridget says you can't talk to the student body president like that and Kerry calls her an idiot. Cate says the hospital called and she needs to go there because of an emergency. Bridget then says she's not an idiot because she's been invited to the Pentagram. Kerry corrects her 'It's the Pentagon' and that proves her point. Cate tells them to knock it off and calls C.J over. She tells him that she's going to be working longer hours she wants him to help out more. CJ then says 'I don't want to work at the hospital' and Cate corrects him by telling her that she wants him to help more here. Bridget and Kerry then get into an argument and CJ then says 'how 'bout you stay here and I go to the hospital' and tries to leave but Cate stops him. In the next scene we see Gramps trying to smoke but Rory catches him. Rory takes the cigarettes and Grampa says that he wants them back to 'touch 'em'. Rory then says no and Grampa tells him that he 'doesn't know what it's like to have this filthy habit and you have the urge to go and sneak off and take care of it.' Rory then says ' Yeah Grampa, I can't relate to that at all'.
