DO: Laugh things off
 
Courtney has a knack for defusing an uncomfortable situation. After the fight and subsequent make up with Drew, she wisely suggests they learn to just be honest and laugh at each other. Like if Drew doesn't think she looks good, he should just call her Seabiscuit. Oh, Courtney, you truly have a gift for lightening the mood.
 
DO: Give your dogs a Pretty Woman moment

I probably could have watched Tara and her friend play dress up with their pooches for the entire episode. It was kind of like a live action Best in Show. From Tara saying she wanted to give her dog, Shaniqua, a Pretty Woman moment by dressing her up in jewels to Shaniqua subsequently bumbling around in that enormous necklace/collar, it was a sheer delight.

However the star of the show was obviously Grace Kelly and the dulcet cooings of her owner. When she donned that string of giant pearls with the lavender ribbon, a well-deserved hush descended upon the room followed by an unbridled outpouring of praise. However we do learn the important lesson that lavender washes everyone out -- even dogs.
