The family plans to throw Nora a surprise 60th birthday party, but the surprise is on them when Nora and Saul's mother Ida arrives unannounced. The party will be a big bash with about 40 guests attending and lots of liquor, but things start going wrong fast. Sarah, the chief planner, comes down with the flu and is forced to delegate her responsibilities to Kevin... who doesn't want them. Tommy gets Justin out of rehab for the party but learns that in order for Justin to attend, alcohol must be banned. Sarah had unknowingly ordered a Medieval theme instead of 'MidLevel' and her and Joe's sex tape makes an unwelcome debut at the party. Kitty asks the Senator to attend and he charms Nora and slowly begins making romantic headway with Kitty. Written by tomtrekp
