Guess we're doing kooky first.

While Grace is trying to shop for a dress to wear on her Christmas postcard, she and Karen learn that Beverly Leslie's wife has died. He invites them to the funeral, which according to him is a "celebration of her death... life!".

At Beverly's mansion, Grace finally finds the perfect dress—a vintage couture dress worn by Beverly's late wife. Grace tries it on to take a photo but Karen's shirt accidentally gets caught in the dress' zipper and the two attend the ceremony stuck together. Things get even more difficult for Grace when Beverly asks Karen to say a few words and she agrees.

Beverly:Crystal thought so highly of you. We often discussed inviting you into our marriage in a sexual way.
Karen:That's so flattering. Although, I don't know if I could have operated a pump and a defibrillator at the same time.
