Gordon, Lawrence, Iris and the Favor Bank

Now that we're at the end of the Vacation From Hell and at the beginning of the Ted-Connie-Phil debacle, it behooves me to leave the Pattersons behind again; I part by showing you how it is that the people the Pattersons think that they've supported over the years filled up the Favor Bank. We start, of course, with Gordon; as we know, he's a self-made man who allows the Pattersons to think that they had a hand in things because they've convinced themselves that they did something about his abusive parents other than make stupid aphorisms about dark houses. Since they think that they've been there for him, he has to cough up limos on demand. Next comes Lawrence; since he allows them to pose as being tolerant and progressive when they're actually close-minded throwbacks, he has to provide floral arrangements. Iris comes off the worst; for agreeing to take the burdensome old man off their hands, she has to suffer the torments of the damned in grinning silence.
