"On this kitchen table". I think Bailey's intention here was to keep himself within the walls of the Prairie house for as long as possible that night, and not outside of the house. The Studio house was where Bailey did the majority of his writing but he stresses that on that night, "on this kitchen table" because once he moves outside the Prairie house he will have to discuss a part of his alibi that is weak, and a part that he is not comfortable with.
