“Work Out” Recaps: Episode 3.7 “Mom vs. Mom”


Guess who’s coming to dinner — It’s been days and days since Peeler

ambushed Jackie and tried to win his job back. Unfortunately, his pitch

consisted of the ambitious but rarely successful two-pronged approach of groveling and

bitch-slapping. Jackie kept her cool, stood back, and watched Brian implode

in spectacular fashion all over the sidewalk.

It takes a certain kind

of jackassery to outdo Jackie Warner in the drama department. Kudos to you,

Brian Peeler, wherever you are.

Back at Sky Sport &

Spa, life goes on. Today, Jackie and Briana are hanging out in Jackie’s office

talking about how nervous they are. Jackie says her mind isn’t the finely honed

instrument it usually is; it must be nerves. Briana admits sheepishly she’s

nervous, too, but also excited.

What’s up? Is Jodie

Foster in the lobby, seeking a new, ripped body to go with her new life?

If only. A platinum blonde

comes bouncing into Jackie’s office, chomping on a big ol’ wad of gum. It’s Jesse’s

sister, Bethany, for no reason whatsoever. Jackie says hey, Bethany says hey. Jackie and Jesse share a

laugh over a family resemblance only they can see.

But that’s not the big

news. The big, bad news of the day is that Jackie’s right-wing, anti-gay, fundamentalist

mom is coming to town. Oh goodie.

Jackie: Listen to this little slice of

hell I’ve created for myself. Per usual, I’ve not had the guts to tell her … I

told her about Bri, but so briefly …

Jesse: Oh God.

Jackie: … And I’m like, [quickly] “I

have a girlfriend and she’s living with me.” And so, I completely passed

over it like that.

But wait, there’s more!

Jackie: So, she knows Bri is living

with me, but she doesn’t know that Bri’s family is coming to town and staying

at my house …

Briana: … tonight, as well.

Jesse: You’re all going to be in one


Work Out producers are truly grasping at straws-slash-inspired

this season.

Smug with the knowledge that

his family is drama-free, Jesse takes his sister outside on the deck and works

her out until they decide that shopping for purses for both of them would be way

more fun.
