It's all about taking care of business of one sort or another on "Parenthood" this week.
Crosby and Adam were getting ready to be interviewed about The Luncheonette. Crosby's part of the interview seemed to go very well. When he stepped out to grab one of his guitars, the reporter talked to Adam about how he got involved in the business. He told the story of losing his job and Crosby coming to him with the idea about the studio just when he needed it.
Turns out the reporter found that angle more interesting, and Adam ended up on the cover...with no mention of Crosby.

On Tuesday night's return, the Braverman clan packed up for a family road trip.
Zeek has decided the entire family needs to go see his mother, whom he hasn't mentioned since the series began. He apparently has issues with Grandma Blanche, but decides to visit after she's fallen and injured herself. I can't imagine Zeek leading a caravan of Bravermans all over California without there being some sort of blow-up, or four.
Let's start with the awkward. Remember a few weeks ago, when someone at Drew's school posted a picture of Sarah kissing Mr. Cyr on the web, and how badly he took that? This week, he walked in on the two of them having sex.

Life was better for some Bravermans than others this week, and while it was definitely more upbeat than the last episode, there's still no happy dance party at the end.
Jasmine wakes up next to Crosby, realizing her mom will be there with Jabbar. She proceeds to act like a child instead of a grown-a– woman who spent the night with the father of her child.
So, she forces him to get up and run, while he's trying to discuss the situation. At least she didn’t make him go out the window.

As much as I like to joke about Braverman family get-togethers and dance parties, this episode could have used one. There was very little comedy going on in last night's episode, and many members of the Braverman clan needed a good laugh.
You know how I’ve been saying this whole "adopting the baby from the office coffee girl" thing isn’t going to go well? The other shoe's about to drop.
We begin with Joel, Julia and Zoe waiting at breakfast for the baby's father to show up. He blows them off, supposedly because he got called into work.

This week there was no mention of Seth (thankfully) and we were spared Crosby-Jasmine-Dr. Joe drama as "Parenthood" focused a bit more on parenting issues.
Sarah opened the mail to find Drew got a D in math, which has never happened. When she goes to talk to him about it, she finds him in his room with Amy. She thinks the fact he has a girlfriend is the only change that explains his grade dropping, and she forbids him from seeing Amy during the week.
Because, you know, he couldn't possibly be having problems because his wayward drunk of a father drifted back into his life, went through rehab, and left town again.

I think the title of this week's "Parenthood" - "In Between" - must mean some of these people are in between a rock and a hard place, either at work or at home. Let's start with Adam, who is, or will be, up against it at home because of work.
Crosby and Adam are still trying to find a receptionist/assistant for the studio. They interview some sketchy characters, including one who probably couldn’t find his way home.
The one person who doesn’t seem crazy and actually knows about music is young and very cute. Adam seems reluctant to hire her, claiming he didn’t notice she’s hot. Crosby says perhaps Adam is scared about Kristina objecting. As well he should be!
