Here's an idea

I found her
This 5-day episode has a slightly confusing beginning, but then tightens up nicely.
Day # 1 -- Presumably a weekday afternoon, with Judy showing her logos to the ice cream-eating kids. Tiffany arrives to borrow The Name Book. Lily's not there because she's awaiting her turn for a job interview.
Day # 2 -- Not the same day. Lily, in different attire from day #1, is interviewed and, like her college credits, comes up short. Some time later, she sits with Judy in a restaurant and assumes her sister has been seeing Will Gluck "since the wedding." At school, Mr. Dmetri defines "nice" for Grace. Judy, hungry once again, delivers a thank you basket to Karen.
That night, the four kids sit together (temporarily) on the LR sofa watching, maybe, "Godzilla." In the kitchen, Lily tells Rick about her name confusion from "the other day, at one of those interviews." [ This makes me think Day#1 may have been a Friday ] Judy arrives, surprising Lily.
Day # 3 -- The next morning. As Rick shaves, Lily shares that working with Judy could mean working with Jake as well. In the kitchen, Jessie takes a call from Karen, who reminds her daughter of the Musketeer movie opening "this weekend." She tells Jess, "I'll see you Sunday." Jessie asks Eli, "Are you really busy this weekend?" Judy phones Will, who was going to call her "a bunch of times." Soon, Jake tells Tiffany about Judy's great idea.
At school, August Dmetri challenges Grace to stop being "Gracie."
At Phil's later, Judy shares her vision while Lily and Jake discuss how much food a cafe should serve. Tiffany calls Lily's cell phone with the radio station heads up. At the radio station, Les Creswell tells Lily she can start tomorrow, "24 hours from now." She needs to sleep on it. At home, Lily finds Eli and Judy in the kitchen. When alone, Lily tells her sister that "the other day" she ran into E in a towel.
Day # 4 -- Judy and Karen have breakfast or lunch at a coffee shop. Karen is bewildered that, since Eli was arrested, she hardly ever sees him. Later, at Phil's, Judy&Lily&Jake debate contractors, which ends with Jake and Lily storming out. After school at home, Eli and Jessie scuffle and Grace asks E, "What about tomorrow?" for a chat. She'll knock on his door "around this time." Upstairs, Lily works on her resume as Judy arrives. Grace delivers a note from the guy at the radio station, about the job her mom interviewed for "yesterday."
Day # 5 -- The next morning, Les Creswell wonders to Lily, "I hired you?" She reminds him he called her house "yesterday." At Phil's, Tiffany mediates Jake's apology to Judy, which Judy reciprocates. Back at school, Mr.Dmetri seems to approve of the embarrassing person Grace is writing about. Later at Phil's, Will visits and tells Judy his 19-year old daughter is in Florida and he's moving there. After school, Grace knocks on the attic door and makes herself comfortable for a chat with Eli. After she leaves, Jessie is next to visit. She and her brother share a welcome pillow fight.
That evening, Lily stops by to see Judy at Phil's. She'd hoped to have dinner with her sister. They share a tender moment as they gaze at their father's photograph on the wall.
Sooo, the action in TAT appears to have followed Busted pretty quickly (see
Lily's "the other day" towel reference, etc). It's still unclear just when
Jessie visits her mom
WHAT'S IN A NAME?:
