Artist Played when Dallas makes an entrance for George when picking her up for a date.
Sheila and Fred insist that Tessa follows Ryan and Lisa into the basement along with Ryan's group of friends so they all can catch front row seats at the gun-show while Fred and Sheila annoy George in privacy about his "failed marriage". Once the teens all go downstairs, Fred and Sheila put on their poker faces and explain a serious matter to George - once a new family moves to Chatswin, they must invite their neighbors to a barbeque - the barbeque - so they do not seem unwelcoming.
Once he tries to ask questions, they force him to stuff his face with cake and listen to them blabber. Once Tessa storms up the stairs yelling "Pickles! Later, George suspects something usual is occurring in Tessa's life when he witnesses her stare into the distance as she has the milk carton tilted towards her cup - though she is not pouring anything at all.
He questions what the entire incident that made Tessa yell "Pickles! The next day, George accompanies Noah at the hair salon. Noah tells George the same thing the Shays at told him - he must throw the barbeque. Noah says that George better have it quickly and Noah is also surprised with the fact that people are still talking to him - surprised that he is even talking to him. Noah then allows George to use his grill - not just any grill, the holy grail of all grills.
As Noah is on his way out, he runs into Dallas, who tells him that yes, he must have the barbeque before the situation gets out of hand. She has him walk with her, and during their stroll through the hair salon, Dallas spills the details about the run-in between Tessa and Ryan's lips - she says its just a neighbor looking out for another neighbor, as she is worried that "baby neighbors" will be welcomed if she didn't.
That night at dinner, George and Tessa eat in silence until the subject comes up and George slowly questions Tessa about Ryan. As he does, Tessa remains silent and blames George that the situation was his fault, not hers, as he took her from her natural environment and dropped her in the middle of the suburbs and then she storms from the room.
The next day, George holds a barbeque in his backyard. Once Noah fires up his grill, Sally, Dallas confronts George to compliment the guacamole. She asks him if he smooched it himself, and he tells her he did, which leads her to change the subject by saying "speaking of smooching" - which means she is going to once again throw questions out into the open about Tessa and Ryan.
He tells her he could not manage to pester any information from Tessa, though he says she did make a cryptic comment about penguins. Dallas tells her that she believes "penguin" may be Web-language for male crotch, so she tells George she will get back to him after she looks it up on Yahoo!
After that, George has a run-in with two obviously homosexual neighbors, and George comments that it is so nice to see a gay couple, as it makes him feel like he is still living in New York because the place is flooding with gays. The two men's jaws drop, and they ask if there really is a gay couple in the suburbs.
They quickly tell George to "dish" because they love hearing all the gossip before their wives. Next, Noah runs up to George and informs him that Sally is deal - she is out of propane.
George suggests that Noah goes to purchase more propane, though the only store that sells a tank of propane big enough to feed Sally is closed on Sunday - and it was Sunday. George then whips out his old barbeque grill he had in New York and feeds Chatswin their highly-demanded barbeque.
In the last scene, we see Tessa sit on the back steps of the porch and her and George both share barbeque while George tells Tessa a story about a woman he used to know who he couldn't stand - the woman turning out to be the departed Ms.
Sheila makes Tessa lunch and transports her to and from school every day, Sheila even set up a college fund in Tessa's name. But, apparently, it's not the motherly gestures Sheila is pulling, it's just her So he decides to drive Tessa to school and once he gets there, he confronts Sheila and tells her she can stop mothering his daughter, though Sheila insists that it is her duty as president of the PTA to take care of all children as if they were her own.
Though, he tries his hardest to show her. The next day, George shows up at his first PTA meeting and once every woman is seated, Sheila Shay slams her gavel and demands that everybody quiets down so she can start asking George if Tessa is up to date on her immunizations. George then tells them all that working parents have to balance more than non-employed parents and George states that he does not have enough time to constantly mother like those mothers mother.
So, Sheila angrily gavels George, to which George comments that maybe it was time to gavel Sheila. The mothers all gasp, stating that the PTA hasn't been this exciting since Connie Kisshell had a psychotic break-down.
The next day, George and Noah are running on treadmills at the country club gym and George is explaining to Noah about all of his troubles with Sheila. Then, Jocelyn appears to flirt with George as she offers him a cucumber-infused washcloth. George then walks away and on his way out, Dallas hunts him down in the middle of her tennis lesson.
She pleads that George drops out of the PTA as he offended about every one of those women at the latest meeting. He tells her that they offended him and he storms off as Dallas snaps that George cannot take the towels off the country club property. Connie introduces that meeting's activity, which is a work-out that will do wonders for your self-esteem.
George nods with approval until Sheila and the women agree how much stress giving birth puts on their "chi-chi"s. So Sheila lowers a curtain to a stripper pole, which humiliates George completely. Dallas then works the pole and next in line is Deena Doogan, who disinfects the pole and starts to interperate her morning routine.
She breaks down admitting she is not at all sexy and starts to babble about her marital problems and George steps in to help, giving her advice that makes her feel better. Sheila laughs and asks if the women are going to have a man give them advice about their men The women huddle around George, who shoos them off and reminds them of the "one at a time" rule.
Sheila then quits and the women decide to pass the gavel to George. Later, while George is gossiping on the phone with several moms, saying who looks 50 and suggesting what tops they should wear to PTA functions, Tessa tells him how crazy he sounds. During the discussion of jobs for the occasion, Dallas reminds George of all the duties that used to be held by Sheila, though George shamelessly decides to take it upon himself to do all them.
So, after he gets the bouquets and refreshments for Teacher Appreciation Week, we see him doing the dishes in a pair of mom jeans So Tessa suggests that George hangs up his new jeans and begins to start being a father once again. So, George walks across the street and returns the gavel to basket case Sheila, who insists that the PTA needs their marital counselor. To get Sheila into PTA president mode, George mentions an upcoming function - a picnic at a petting zoo, which is located near a plant.
Almost instantly, Sheila thinks of the fumes of the plant mixed with the picnic and the baby ducks Sheila just always remembers those fumes. So, order returns to Chatswin as Sheila gets her gavel back. It turns out that Sheila Shay's collection of Shirley Temple dolls has been stolen. Next, George and Noah meet together over lunch at the country club. Noah informs George that ever since the doll burglary, business in his dental practice has been rising to the roof.
He advises George to also take advantage of the opportunity and create panic rooms in the homes of families to help them feel safer, while helping himself earn extra cash. Noah is pointing at the panic rooms of Bono and Jay-Z while George is saying that, as an architect, he knows that not many people add extra rooms to their homes. All of a sudden, a nervous and vulnerable Dallas rushes into the restaurant and starts selecting decor for the panic room she demands that George installs in her house.
George just isn't on with the panic room idea. That night, when George and Tessa are setting the table for microwave pizza night, the doorbell suddenly rings.
In the doorway stands Dalia, who then is rushed up to by Dallas and two Louie Veton trunkloads of their things. Apparently, since the Royces do not yet have a panic room to panic in, they felt like "sitting ducks in their big professionally-decorated home" and rushed over to the Altman's "cozy" house to seek refuge from Chatswin's crime-ridden streets.
So, not that much time goes by before Dallas starts to annoy George and Tessa. Dallas then adds "a woman's touch" by setting the table with a vase full of roses she stole from Sheila's flower garden, china she stole from a moving box marked 'Good Dishes', and a table runner.
This irritates him and Tessa because even after they explained to Dallas that it's only pizza night and they prefer to eat their pizza on paper plates. The doorbell does ring twice, so Tessa leaves the room as George takes a bite into his slice of pizza. Dallas makes George spit out his bite of pizza after explaining that no one is allowed to take a bite of their food unless everyone is seated at the table at the same time.
So, later that night, Dallas unplugs the alarm clock and lamp on George's bedside table to make way for her beauty products. Then, she clears George's underwear drawer and fills it with her collection of yoga pants.
After she mentions this, she starts to poke fun at George and his unflattering, dumpy white boxer shorts.
Once he starts to tell her that a woman should keep her hands off a man's "undies", she starts to mace him with spritses of lavender spray, so he eventually storms from the room. That night, George and Tessa hear activity occurring downstairs.
George quips a curtain rod and finds that the noises are coming from the laundry room, so he swings open the door and finds that the clamor is Dallas, who is sitting on his washing machine in the dark, guiltily eating a "Croque Monsieur".
He drops the curtain rod and him and Dallas have an affectionate conversation with each other about how hard it mush be to have to raise their only children on their own. The next morning, Dalia and Tessa walk into the kitchen were George and Dallas are in their robes and feeding each other scrambled eggs off the floor while discussing the various upcoming events occurring in Suburbia This leads Tessa and Dalia to map out a plan that will separate both families and put them back in their original houses.
Tessa claims that she is the notorious Chatswin doll thief and has Dalia on board to purposely frame her in Mr. So, George gets called up to school and Tessa claims she did it because the suburbs have been boring her. George says he'll consider moving back to New York in the future.
The episode "Halloween" starts out with two mothers in tracksuits power-walking together, who then drop their jaws in pure horror as they look on at the monstrosity that has become of Altman's home. In the front yard, George and Tessa are seen hanging up ghoulish and gory decorations, including rows of tombstones and a bloody guillotine. Their house is even half-covered by a cobweb and an over sized spider. Tessa then explains that in the city, rather than fake decorations, they had to worry about real murder scenes.
It then is cut to a flashback of Tessa and George dressed as a pilot and a mime. They happily knock on a door, chanting out the usual "Trick-or-Treat! He says that a murder recently occurred in the apartment, proven by the crime scene tape and bloody hand prints. We had wanted to pick up where we had left off [this season] and for a minute when it seemed like we were going to come away back in the fall, we thought "maybe there's a possibility," there's just the end of summer and we had left off at Mother's Day but then once we got pushed and we actually didn't premiere until, I think, October -- I think our second episode was Halloween.
The scheduling is always its own monkey wrench so you really have to be resilient and think on your feet and not overly plan. So you know what your stories are and then you have to figure out what season and what time frame are you able to tell them, if you're lucky enough to find yourself back on the schedule, which hopefully we will be, but you never know. Why did you decide that you needed to break them up at the end of this year? We definitely weighed both options.
I actually talked with Jeremy and Cheryl.Suburgatory // George and Dallas // Desde Cuando
I had them come up to my office and we talked about their relationship and what we were all feeling and the different ways to go. We've discussed the possibility of them blending families and the girls living side by side and them trying to make it work, and we talked about the opposite.
We talked about what it if all falls away and the fallout. And I think that we all agreed that the blended family scenario felt much more sitcom-y to us and maybe not as inspiring creatively as dealing with the fallout. I mean, I loved watching Cheryl navigate Dallas' divorce. I do think one of the things that's unusual for our show is that we have these actors who are not just comedic actors -- there's real depth and there's real range and whenever we write to that and we give them these meatier storylines, it's very rewarding and I think the viewers like it too.
It really is one of the things that makes the show its own animal; we have this heavier stuff lurking in the sidelines and I really relish those episodes where we get to have it rear its head and we get to give them a chance to stretch. Jane Levy is quite a dramatic actress herself, and Jeremy and Cheryl I think from a creative standpoint, us writers feel like we get to have our cake and eat it too, over here. Do you think that George and Dallas are truly compatible, or do you think there would always be obstacles and reasons for them to fall apart?
I think there's obstacles. I think that one of the things that I like so much about their breakup is that they both make such good points. And I think that George saying "Dallas, you don't love yourself, and this person doesn't love you as you and you're in the way," I think Dallas definitely has some work to do, in order to be in a proper relationship.
I think that she should be single. She's not spent much time being alone and I think we watched her jump headfirst into George Altman straight out of her divorce. She needs to spend a little time working on her identity outside of a relationship. And George -- even though it does seem like a practical choice choosing Dallas -- I do think he chose with his head a little bit more than with his heart. I think he has a real soft spot for Dallas. Down Time When Lisa gets a text from Tessa asking what they're doing during the weekend, they decide that they should try and 'hook her up' with someone.
This seems to gain Ryan's interest. On Friday night, when Tessa has nothing to do because she doesn't want to be the third wheel to Lisa and Malik, she tells herself that she is happy to have time to herself. Tessa surprised by Ryan knocking on her door She starts eating butter, watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, playing with dolls and eating more butter, when Ryan knocks on her door and surprises her.
Tessa asks him if he was watching her, to which he admits. He then says that she 'fell off' and that she's eating too much butter, He says that when he heard her sister talking about hooking her up with someone; he thought that because she'd made out with him, she could get anyone.

But after watching her from the bushes, he's not so sure. Tessa tells him that she's not herself and she admits that maybe she is leaning on butter more than usual but says that she is a recovering tricycle trying to get by on one wheel. Ryan says that he's been there and asks if she wants to get something to eat because her pajamas with print of various foodstuffs are making him hungry.
Tessa then tries to leave and says that they should go somehwere else. Ryan wants to stay becuase he wants a bowl of wet, hot cheese and the forks are long. Tessa agrees to stay but says that they should get in there before Lisa or Malik sees them. When Lisa is feeding Malik, she stabs him in the lip with her fork becuase she has seen Ryan and Tessa together. She says that her heart is breaking because Tessa has 'bottomed out' and quickly makes her way over to them.
She claims that she can't even imagine how lost Tessa must feel to resort to Ryan. Tessa tells her that she's fine, Lisa should stop pitying her and that Lisa had her pitying herself. Ryan agrees with this telling Lisa that he caught her eating butter.
Tessa tells Lisa that she doesn't have to feel guilty about doing things without her. Ryan touching Tessa's boob Lisa says that Ryan should go home, but Tessa interrupts her saying that they were having a nice time.
Both Ryan and Lisa ask, "Really?! Lisa looks slightly disgusted by this but Ryan looks happy. Later Ryan and Tessa are walking to her house and Tessa says that it was fun and thanks him for getting her out of the house.
Ryan tells Tessa that his mom says that when you want to say thank you, you should send a thank-you card but that he really wants to touch her boob instead.
Tessa agrees, but says he only has three seconds and pulls back her sweater. When he pulls back he asks her what her address is and Tessa tells him he doesn't have to send her a thank-you card and leaves.
Season Two Season two was noted for Tessa and Ryan trying to make their relationship work. Ryan jumps onto Lisa's bed, after she gives him her room. Ryan then asks Lisa, if he could have her sweater, and then a snake, and then if he could have Tessa because she's his moose.
Lisa corrects him, by saying muse. She's his jam, and Tessa is what Ryan wants. The hillside electrical strangler comes looking for Mr. Werner, and Tessa is afraid to let the man inside the house, so she locks herself, and Opus in the bathroom, and calls Lisa to come keep her company.
Lisa then suggests that Ryan go over to the Werner's place to keep Tessa company. Ryan runs all the way from his house to the Werner's, and when he gets there, Tessa tells him that she could kiss him for being there with her.
He puts his hand on her face, to stop her from kissing him, and then he tells her he thinks that he is dying, because Lisa has been so nice to him recently. Ryan then starts ranting about how he thinks he's dying, and how they should call his disease Ryan's disease, and then maybe start a song called Ryan's song.
Ryan then starts talking about how everyone is going to die eventually, and Opus starts crying. Ryan shushs baby Opus by whispering "Shut up, shut up, shut up. Ryan then asks Tessa if it's too late for the kiss that she was trying to give him earlier. Tessa then goes to kiss Ryan on the cheek, but he bends down, and kisses her on the mouth.
Ryan then tells Tessa that she "forgot to open her mouth, and put her tongue on his tongue, and move it around and stuff". Tessa then tells him that she didn't forget. Ryan then asks her if she's attracted to him because he's holding a baby, and Tessa tells him that she's only attracted to him because he's holding a baby.
The Wishbone Ryan tells his father that he wants the wishbone from the turkey because he has a wish he wants to make, and that wish is to make love to their neighbor. Fred mistakes the neighbor for someone else. Krampus Ryan finally finds out that he is adopted, and runs away from the Shay family.
At the end of this episode, Lisa asks Tessa to go talk to Ryan, because he's crazy about her. He always has been. Lisa then tells Tessa to tell Ryan that she loves him too. Tessa finds Ryan, and she tells him that she can relate to him.
Ryan then pulls out a business card that he made with Malik's printer that has his new name "Eugene Goldfarb" on it. Tessa then tells Ryan that he isn't Eugene and that he's Ryan Shay, he lives across the street from her, and that he has a huge crush on her.
Tessa then tells Ryan that she might have a crush on him too. She then kisses him, after their kiss, he starts shouting triumphantly, "She used tongue!
