Summary Edit

A friend of Lydia's comes to visit and decides she wants to feature the Pearson house on her television show. Lydia goes crazy redecorating to get the house "ready" for the show. Pepper Ann is less than thrilled, and soon discovers that everyone in town has their own special room or thing that they don't use because they're waiting for a "special occasion".


Pepper Ann: Enough! I am sick and tired of you grown-ups and your velvet rooms!
Tadius: Shh! The walls are talking to Tadius! Can't you hear them? Help us, Tadius! Help us!!
Pepper Ann is setting the table for dinner at Nicky's when Nicky walks in
Pepper Ann: What? What's wrong?
Nicky: This is the good China, hand-painted by Himalayan nuns in the twelfth century! It's only to be used if the French ambassador or house-majority leader ever come to visit!
