as she looks around the empty house. Knock knock! Tis diva Kate on a mission. She coos she is concerned and says Mickey was a wonderful man, given all the strays he let her fill up the house with. She commends her and Mickey on being able to get thru to the real Mel, who used to be
a handful. Maggie realizes that is the purpose of her visit. She wants to win Mel into her camp, as she is competing with Vivian. Maggie is not amused.
