Grace and Frankie: The Anchor

Frankie gets upset when she finds out that palm oil is going to be added to her yam lube. Sol leaves Robert a ton of voice mail. Grace meets up with Phil at the Anchor Bar.

Frankie finds out that palm oil is being added to her yam lube as a preservative ("This is not my lube, and yes, my vagina can tell"), since yams will spoil otherwise and who knows how long it will sit on the shelf. And we want it in stores, and the more progressive car washes. Frankie is SUPER offended at this because palm oil kills our cousins ("the Fleeklemans?") the orangutans and actually goes into a business meeting with Brianna and lawyers and lathers up her hands with red bloody-looking lotion as a protest. Ugh, ugh, ugh. "Did you honestly think you could come in with your bloody performance art and it would work?" Yes, yes she did. Brianna kicks her out, saying if Frankie hasn't ruined everything already, she might get a check a few times a year. "I'm not sure it was the best way to get what I wanted. Especially since I didn't get what I wanted," Frankie realizes later. Grace points out that you have to do it the way that business people do it: with research.

On the other hand, Adam the assistant does get to break out his phone and film Frankie, because "I have a few friends who don't think Frankie is real."

Grace and Phil meet up at their old hangout from fifteen years ago, the Anchor Bar, and things are going well until Grace finds out that Phil's still married after all. Grace runs out before he can explain that, so he comes to the house later and explains that just as they were about to divorce, his wife Eileen came down with Alzheimer's.

Sol leaves Robert just a ton of voice mail rambling on and on. He's currently sleeping over with his sons, talking about playing Bergstein Foot Jenga. Apparently Robert is real fun to work with as well, since according to Bud, "we all hide until he calms down or eats a teabag, which he's doing a lot of these days." (EATS A TEABAG?! Robert? I'd figure Sol or Frankie for that.) At one point Sol says, "if you look at my zodiac chart, you'll see I'm cosmically doomed." Later Sol goes over to the house (without notice) and Robert's ready with a plunger. Sol trips and falls into Robert's arms.
