Special Sub-Topic: "Nip/Tuck" - "Tommy Bolton"
|Did Sean give Austin Morretti his address?|
yes. Dr. Sagamore told Sean he couldn't because it was against protocol and if Austin ever tried to contact him it would only endanger his and his mother's safety. Sean thought Dr. Sagamore's "bedside manner" left something to be desired and slipped Austin his address on a scrap of paper. When Austin disappeared from the compound, Sean took Nikki to his home to look for her son there. Sean then invited Nikki to stay at his house with Austin until the Witness Protection Program was ready to move them elsewhere.
|What procedure did Mr. Bolton compare Tommy's surgery to?|
boob job. When Quentin told the Boltons that they no longer performed unnecessary procedures for free, Mr. Bolton asked what made Tommy's surgery any less necessary than a boob job. Quentin replied, "Absolutely nothing, though we don't perform boom jobs for free either. I'm sorry." Quentin left Christian alone in the room looking hesitant to turn Tommy away so easily.
|What did Christian call De La Mer?|
glorified massage parlor. Quentin told Christian that they should pursue the exclusive deal with the spa, but Christian called it a "glorified massage parlor." He accused Julia, Gina and Liz of having to perform sexual favors to fill their client list. Quentin pointed out that it was just Christian's pride talking and warned him that he'd be the one performing sexual favors soon if Troy/Costa didn't get back into lucrative business.
|What was Christian's gift to Gail, his birth mother?|
plastic surgery. Christian took her to lunch at an expensive restaurant and gave her a small box as a gift. She opened it to find his business card and deduced that he was giving her plastic surgery. She at first seemed unsure what to make of the gift, probably somewhat offended. Christian explained that the stress of traumatic situations release chemicals in the body which speed the aging process, so he felt personally responsible for the lines around her eyes and mouth and her drooping jaw line. Gail finally seemed a bit intrigued and agreed to come into the office for a consultation.
|What trait did Christian offer to give Tommy Bolton?|
nose bump. Tommy wanted to look more like his family, and Christian finally offered to give Tommy what they called a "naso-dorsal protrusion." This was a bump in the nose shared by Tommy's father, brother, and sister. Christian coined in the "Bolton bump" and Tommy excitedly latched onto the term.
|What did Julia NOT name to Quentin as something she was depended on for by her company?|
matchmaking. Julia was explaining that running a business was quite like being a patriarch and named the many things she felt personally responsible. She summed it up, saying that she could handle her own stresses but was overwhelmed by having to handle everyone else's as well. Quentin replied by urging her to reconsider a business partnership, calling Troy/Costa a "known commodity, professionally and personally." Then Quentin led Julia to the dance floor where they shared a few steamy tangos.
|Where did Nikki tell Sean she'd taken Austin?|
McDonald's. She'd left the house in a hurry that afternoon after Sean received a hang-up phone call. She returned later that night, though, and invited Sean to share his bed with her. She told Sean that she and Austin had gone to McDonald's to calm down. Before anything could develop between Nikki and Sean, Austin came running into the room, having had a nightmare, and joined them in the bed. As the three went off to sleep, it was revealed that Nikki had a gun hidden on the floor under the bed.
|What did Sean make in the kitchen to make Nikki and Austin feel more at home?|
chocolate chip cookies. While they were in the midst of their happy-family moment, Matt walked in. Already angry from having discovered Quentin in his mother's apartment, Matt lashed out at Sean, yelling at him and then mocking the scene involving Austin and Nikki.
|How had Nikki killed her husband?|
shot him. When Dr. Sagamore came to Sean's house to look for Nikki, he chastised Sean for having endangered both himself and the Morrettis. Sean defended Nikki's need for a little comfort before being whisked off to a safe house, and Dr. Sagamore revealed that Nikki had actually killed her own husband. Contrary to the story Nikki had previously told Sean, Sagamore told him that Nikki "bought a gun, got [her husband] drunk on cheap Chianti, and blew his head off."
|What did Gail tell Christian when he showed up at her son's graduation party?|
"You're my son, but I can't be your mother.". She was trying to explain that she couldn't let him be a part of her family, telling Christian that she couldn't let any of "that ugliness that your father did to me get in and stain [my family]." Christian asked if Gail viewed him simply as a stain, and she told him, "You're my son, but I can't be your mother." Then she left him on the front porch holding the gift he'd brought for Max. Christian eventually just left the gift on the doorstep and left.
