From Los Angeles, Sally Spectra makes her move to Wisconsin as she boldly and loudly tells Billy and Lily how important she was as the Californian ran her own designer company.

The sweetest part of the episode is when Kyle introduces Summer to a movie she has never seen before as Jack mentions the great Edith Head. Edith Head (October 28, 1897 – October 24, 1981) was an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design between 1949 and 1973. Born and raised in California, Head started her career as a Spanish teacher, but was interested in design. She is known, in part, for her blue tinted glasses. According to my search, “Those dark blue-tinted glasses, which became a Head trademark, were originally worn because they let her understand how clothes would look in black and white. But even after the advent of color films, she adhered to the look. They kept her thoughts a secret.”
