Steven accepts works of art for WKS's 1986 auction, reluctantly even Alex's "fiscal-surrealist" bank yard eviction drawing (at age 5), and an abstract welded sculpture by Nick - which only gets a bid from filthy rich, glamorous art lover Victoria Hurstenberg, who calls him an irresistible hidden talent. Nick brings more of his works for a private show at the Keaton house, and becomes her protégé. Only Mallory and naive Nick need weeks to realize that time between the two is more limited due to Victoria offering her patronage not just for his art but also for his company. Just when Nick sweetly brushes off Victoria's private attentions with a gentlemanly hug at a gallery, Mallory is there to see it, and dumps her true love. Meanwhile, Steven is trying to find a place for the only painting that didn't get snapped up at the auction - one that brings nostalgic memories only for him.
Did You Know?
Look, Mallory - I am only gonna say this once, and if you don't believe me, I'm just going to turn around, walk out that door, and never come back: There is nothing going on between me and Victoria.
I don't believe you.
Mallory, I am only gonna say this twice: There is nothing going on between me and Victoria.
