'Brothers and Sisters' recap: Mothers Be Good to Your Callers

On last night's Brothers and Sisters, "Call Mom," Nora auditioned for a radio show against Dr. Alexandra Kirby (guest star Debra Monk), a formidable book-touring beast who fixed Nora's hair as if she were a garage-sale doll and warned everyone not to forget those three little letters after her name: P-H-D. (L-A-M-E.) Nora was about to get smacked down, which was extra unfair because she didn't even have the right shoes!
