School for Cal

Scene shifts to inside Ben and Grace’s bedroom. Ben who up and dressed comes into the room. He has a cup of coffee in his hand. He watches Grace as she wake’s up and rolls over. 

BEN: Morning. Milk, no sugar.

GRACE: Well, whatever you are about to ask for, the answer is yes.

Ben gets back into bed.

BEN: Well, actually, I’m the one saying yes. You’re right. Cal should go back to school get his new normal on.

GRACE: He’s gonna be so happy.

What Day is this?

Since this is Cal’s first day of school, this suggest ONE WEEK time jump has occurred.  Based on evening events of 108.2 when Michaela first brings up the topic of Cal going back to school (which occur in the early days of the week which was skipped) we can assume that Ben and Grace then discussed Cal going back to school, and did all the paper work. Since most of episode 8 occurs within an 18 hour time frame (cf. 108.3), and since Vance later states that the plane had come back three weeks ago (108.22), one could speculate that Cal’s first day was the Monday after Thanksgiving, November 26, 2018.

BEN: On one condition. We need our life back, too. I mean, how long has it been since you and I went out to dinner?

GRACE: My time or yours? Forever.

He kisses graces on the forehead two times.

BEN: You and I tonight, date night.

GRACE: Are you sure? Your new job has been keeping you so busy.

BEN: There’s nothing more important than us, our family. Are we on?

GRACE: I’ll make a reservation.
