ICYMI: Mom Recap for Tiny Dancer and an Impromptu Picnic
The episode opens with Adam (William Fichtner) coming home. He finds Bonnie (Allison Janney) trying to do a Southern role play picnic, but he not interested because he needs to show her something. She is upset, but he insists he come with her right now.
It turns out that he wants to show her a billboard for a strip club….that is using an old picture of Christy.
That night, Bonnie gathers Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), Jill (Jaime Pressly), Wendy (Beth Hall) and Tammy (Kristen Johnston) to show them the billboard. Marjorie wonders why they are using a picture from twenty years ago, while Wendy says it must be an old picture. Bonnie hopes birds will poop on it.
The conversation continues at the bistro, where Jill and Tammy trade stories of their crazy days. Wendy wonders if they should tell Christy, but Bonnie says that she will handle it.
Later on at the meeting, Bonnie tries to call the strip club when Rod (Steve Valentine) walks in. Jill wants to avoid him, but also wants his attention.
At the bar, Rod and Adam talk about the billboard. Rod doesn’t think it is a big deal, but Adam realizes that these women someone’s daughters. He says he wants to do better, but Rod disagrees.
The topic switches to Jill and Rod finally decides to talk to her.
Bonnie goes to the strip club to talk to Hank the manager. He says she is told to work there, but she tells him about Christy and the billboard. He remembers Christy from his DJ days and how he convinced her to dance to Tiny Dancer. He is glad she is alive and well, but refuses to take the billboard down. She refuses to leave until he takes it down, which leads to her being removed by security.
Tammy and Bonnie plan to paint the billboard when Marjorie comes by with the cat. She wonders what is going on, so they fill her in. However, she tries to convince them to think before they act.
Rod and Adam continue to talk when Jill arrives. They talk things out and finally decide to work on being friends.
Bonnie tries to talk about the Christy thing at another meeting, but then decides to leave in order to deface the billboard. This leads to Marjorie and Tammy following her, only to realizing Bonnie stole the keys. They hitch a ride from Wendy, who now has a car with a siren.
Jill and Rod try to hook up, but are interrupted by Marjorie filling her in on the Bonnie situation. She rushes to join them and help Bonnie paint the billboard–united and friends and moms.
The episode ends with Marjorie trying to walk her cat and Tammy on the phone saying they will be late for the meeting again.
