Luther barges in, screaming that Carl gave his daughter gonorrhea. Carl makes a run for it – but Luther doesn’t look like he is going to drop it any time soon.

At the bar, “V” is worried about Fiona and her Tinder hook-ups. Svetlana changes the subject, she wants to talk about their new maid service business. Kevin arrives with the van – which has pictures of “V” and Svetlana topless painted on the sides. And, they won’t even have to hire a babysitter, he had carseats built in to the van.

At work, Fiona is stressed, she gets a phone call from Liam’s daycare. Apparently, he punched someone. Fiona rushes out of work to go pick him up.

Lip isn’t having a much better day at work. Apparently, the company is having a video game championship. They have been playing for hours.

Carl heads to the doctor’s office. He barges in and shouts that someone gave him gonorrhea. He blames the doctor and says that the circumcision gave him gonorrhea. The doctor doesn’t think that he has the disease, but agrees to do the test.

Frank heads to the bar – he is surprised to see that Svetlana’s dad is behind the bar.

A disgruntled neighbor pays Kevin to move the van down the block so his kids can’t see the topless pictures. Kevin gets an idea, he grabs the girls and says they don’t even have to go to jobs – people will pay them just to get the van off their street and away from their kids.

Frank takes his new family to the diner and introduces them to Fiona, she’s not impressed and kicks them out. Frank isn’t out of ideas though, they crash a real estate showing and eat the snacks.

Carl returns home and says that he tested negative for Gonorrhea – Lip explains to Carl that there is no way he could have given Dom the STD if he is negative, and that means that she has been cheating on him.

Fiona and Debbie barge in, they’re having a screaming match over her shoplifting. Fiona screams at her that being a good mom doesn’t mean having money, it means setting a good example and being around – not going to jail.
