#Shameless starts. Fiona is complaining to Sean about Debbie’s pregnancy. He doesn’t want to hear about it. He puts his hand over her mouth to shut her up and starts sexing her up. She says she’s going to make Debbie get an abortion.
Sean says don’t push too hard or Debbie could do the opposite. He says a nurse is coming to the diner to give her a drug test because of her promotion. He leaves and we see Carl online checking out hot black chicks online.
He wakes Nick up and tells him he doesn’t need to sleep with the hammer anymore and says no one will ass rape him at his house. Victoria comes down and starts getting busy with Kevin while the babies are napping. They hear the Yanis and the lesbians screaming at each other.
The babies wake crying. Yanis is furious that animal control is taking his dogs away. Kevin comes out and screams at him for yelling and waking his daughters. Yanis says he’s had those puppies since he was eight weeks old.
The women say the dogs could bite their kids – neither has a baby, but they tell them soon. Kevin says to clean the shit out of his yard, then get the dogs their shots and he can have them back. The Lisas thank Kevin and he says this neighborhood was fine before they moved in.

Debbie grabs a bag of flour and says she’s going to carry it all day to show that she can go to school and take care of a baby. Theo, her hubby, is loud while Helene and Lip are having sex. He’s singing in the shower.
Helene tells Lip he should kill her husband and make it look like an accident then says she’s got a million dollar life insurance policy. He asks if she’s joking and she says maybe. Theo comes out and calls Lip doll face and says the shower is open.
Carl and Nick walk down the street and Carl tells him what’s going on in the neighborhood. Carl goes into the dry cleaner and gestures to Nick and the guy pays up. Ian tells Debbie good luck with the flour and says Fiona is all over his case.

Lip apologizes to Dylan who asks if he’s apologizing for thinking he was f-ing his own mother then says bitterly, no I’m f-ing my father. Theo offers to cook Lip some eggs and he says no thanks. Theo says he had him worried with the Dylan thing. Lip says sorry.
Theo says the only reason he’s having sex with his wife is because he allows it. Lip says he gets it. He goes and Theo tells him to have a good day. Frank has sativa with one of the hipsters. Svetlana tells Kevin the idiots are paying $12 for espresso so she’s letting them smoke.
Hipster Gary advises Frank to take Bianca’s stuff to the hospital where they met and burn it all to free himself. Frank says he’s right and takes off. Gary hands him a lighter and Frank kisses his cheeks and leaves.
Kevin asks when they got an espresso machine and Svetlana says Carl and a big scary black guy stole it and sold it to them. Debbie gets on the bus with her flour baby and she asks a guy to give his seat for her baby.

Nick and Carl go inside without getting tagged. Frank goes to the hospital with the box of crap. He grabs a trash can and starts putting stuff into it. A doctor calls security and he pours lighter fluid on it.
She asks if he’s Frank. Security grabs him before he can set it on fire. Frank says he’s just trying to erase her memory. Dr Jung says it’s okay, she knows Bianca’s friend Frank. Fiona calls Ian and says he’s late to work and get his ass there.

A nerd comes in and says he needs to buy a gun for protection in case there’s a shooting. Carl offers him a Glock 17 for $300 and the guy asks him to teach him how to use it. He tells him that’s what the internet is for. He tells the kid to be safe and walk tall.

Ian says she’s all up his ass and she says he needs to show some gratitude. She says leave if you don’t like it. Ian says fine and talks out. He says he doesn’t need this. He slams out the door. Melinda says nice one and says nothing is c**tier than firing a relative.
Fiona goes to rant to Sean about everyone being jerks. She says she fired Ian and he says good, he was an awful busboy. Fiona says she can’t deal with this much responsibility. He says he shot up with some drugs he found in Otis’ locker and that’s why he’s been at so many meetings.
Fiona is stunned. She says it’s one more thing to worry about and asks why he did it. He says he’s an addict. She says she’s in love with a heroin addict and he says he’s always been one since she’s known him.
He says it was last night and she says they were together last night. He says yes. She asks him to promise not to do it again. She says that’s not how the disease works and says she’s been through the program. She says she was never an addict and didn’t pay attention.

Debbie and her flour baby are on the train. A handicapped woman on a walker asks her to move. Debbie realizes it’s her stop and gets off the train without her flour baby. She screams but the train is gone.
Frank tells Hilary about what he did for Bianca then says he can do the same for Hilary. He says he can be her cancer concierge. He says he needs to get Bianca out of his system. He tells her he thinks having sex on the train tracks would do it.
She says she hasn’t been touched in 15 years and he says let me worry about that. He gives her a crack pipe and lights it up. She keels over into his lap and he realizes she’s dead. He checks her pulse then curses and runs off.
Lip calls Fiona and says Debbie’s mind is made up. She asks him to meet her at the house to try together. The nurse who came to drug test her tells her she’s pregnant. Fiona is stunned. Fiona finds Debbie packing and tells her they need to go to the clinic now.

Kevin says he’s going to cut the motorcycle cable so this is done. He creeps up on the bike and clips a cable. Sean creeps in while Fiona is lying in bed. He says he was at a late meeting and he’s sorry he’s late.
Sean says he can’t promise he won’t do it again. She puts her hand on his mouth and tells him to shut up. She rolls onto him and starts riding him then stares at what looks like more than one track mark on his elbow.
Kevin wakes to hear the motorcycle and Veronica says he cut the throttle cable. He realizes he cut the brake cable instead just as Yanis crashes into a car because he can’t stop. He goes flying. Frank sets a shed on fire burning the Bianca stuff.
