Carl writes Nick’s name on the box. Fiona wakes spooning with Sean to her alarm. She says she has to get back. She says it’s been nice with no kids or chaos staying with him. She says she has to check on things and say something is up with Carl and he’s acting like he owns the place.
She says he kind of does. Sean asks if Frank still has the hippie there and she says yes. Fiona says she has to take Liam to head start. Frank calls out that breakfast is ready and says he and Queenie made it. She’s made him a green shake and she says he’s the king of the castle.

Ian asks if he can tag along to the firehouse but Caleb says he has off for the wedding. He asks if Ian has thought more about applying to be a fireman and says he can start by checking into an EMT job. Ian says maybe then Caleb asks if he’ll be his wedding date.
He says having Ian there would make it easier. He agrees. At school, Carl talks to some black friends at school – the show hilariously subtitled their exchange since it was rife with street slang. Dunny. Lip shows up to see a college representative.
He’s been fired as an RA for the mural on his wall. She tells him he has to move out of the dorm today. Lip is annoyed and they are clear to him that it’s not about his affair. Chuckie shows up crying and Frank asks why he’s there. He says they sent him home from school.

Frank says except for a little bit of grammar, it’s not a bad paper. Frank asks if they told the class they couldn’t write about Nazis. Frank says this is a direct attack on Chuckie’s first amendment rights. He says Chuckie is possibly retarded.
The counselor says they can’t let hate speech and have created an open atmosphere. Frank says you can’t teach equality and then hold him down. He says the yin and yang of democracy is that you have to tolerate asshole opinions.
Frank says they are heading toward a state of the rich and the f-d and Chuckie is already f-d. He says that’s liberty and justice for all. Frank says they can call the ACLU and attorney general. Lip meets Marilyn, the sorority house mother.
She says it’s cleaning, cooking, killing bugs. Lip says he needs a place to crash and she says there’s a bedroom and bathroom in the basement. She says it comes with three meals a day but he has to start today. He’s in a house full of coeds and is thrilled.

Erica says Debbie is a role model for deciding to raise a child on her own. She tells her she’s so sure of her. Debbie touches her hand and Erica says she’ll miss her then asks if she’ll come around and say hi. Debbie climbs on her and says she wants to stay and they can be happy together.
Debbie tries to figure out how to put her hands on her and Erica gets excite but then Debbie gets a text from Frank saying she needs to come home and the other deal is dead. Debbie is thrilled and says she’s 15 and likes boys. She runs out.
Fiona finds a full on party going on at her place. Carl leaves and Fiona unplugs the stereo and tells everyone get out. At the wedding, Caleb puts his arm around Ian as the ceremony starts. His dad is presiding over and starts talking about how God is always watching.
He starts talking about how God can see you when you are naked, in the shower, and when you can’t hide. Ian whispers to Caleb that God must have serious insomnia. V and Kevin are down at the pool and another couple are getting busy in the pool.
V is worried that he forgot to tell Carol to turn on some lights so no one breaks into their house. She asks about the babies and he says everything is fine. She says she’s tripping. The babies cry while Svetlana yanks a tooth out of Tommy’s mouth.
She chugs down a shot and he grabs one of the kid’s passies to suck. Fiona has Liam in the tub washing out the lice. She throws all the clothes in the washer. She vacuums up the mess and then Frank comes in and says at least she didn’t forget her chores.
She says Liam has lice and Queenie says chemicals aren’t the way to go and recommends tea tree oil. Fiona says they have a system of getting rid of lice that works. Fiona says they don’t want to deal with lice for another month to go natural.
Frank tells Queenie that decades of chemicals have left her destroyed. Carl goes to the house of the kid that Nick killed with the hammer that stole his bike. He has a sympathy card with cash and drugs in it. He knocks and says he lives up the street.
He says he wants to offer condolences. He says there’s money in there and five grams. He says they could sell it to help cover funeral costs. They tell him no and to leave so he leaves it on the porch among the flowers, cards, and candles.
Toria tells Lip she knew he’d get the job and he says he’s still trying to figure out what a houseboy is. She asks if he wants company later. He says yeah. She says cool. She goes to whisper to the other girls who high five.
Debbie comes home and looks at the new additions to the house. Frank asks how she is and she asks how they got the house back. He says Carl bought it. He calls down Queenie who loves on her then hugs her. Frank says it’s Sammi’s mom.
Queenie says she can help her keep her uterus happy and says she delivered Chuckie in the back of an RV. Frank says her sister dropped her and she can use Queenie’s help. Queenie gets her some herbs to help strengthen her placenta and she talks about how you can eat it.
Kevin says it’s nice for them to relax in the pool with the creepy old guy watching them. He’s not happy that she brought her phone down. She asks why he’s freaking and says it was just her mom asking for a souvenir.
He says he thinks he’s worn her out dealing with his shit and says he can’t even plan a vacation right. She says it’s not so bad then admits it’s a shit hole but says at least they’re alone. He says he just doesn’t want her to have to fix all his f-k ups.
She says dealing with the f-k ups is what she does for him and he deals with her not being able to get pregnant and all her crazy. They start getting busy in the pool and wonder if the old man is a pervert or is dead.
Caleb tells Ian he loves straight weddings. Ian says the only wedding he’s been to was when his closeted BF had to marry a hooker that was pregnant after they were forced to have sex at gun point. Caleb touches him and Ian gets mad and says he’s using him as a gay prop.
Caleb says he just wants to make the mild homophobes in his family harder for them to ignore him. Ian says they can make it harder to ignore it and chugs a drink. Fiona yells at Carl of listening to the stereo too loud and smoking dope.

He asks if Nick is gone for good. Carl says he dropped a guy and that’s thug life. Sean says he doesn’t know that much about thug life but has seen someone get dropped. He says you don’t know how much it will haunt you until it just does.
Sean says the bad news is, there’s no way to pretend it didn’t happen. He lights a smoke and says he can always hit the reset. Carl goes back inside. Lip pounds on Helene’s door and calls out her name. He’s drunk. He tells her to come out.
He says he just wants to talk and says he doesn’t know how to make things right but if he could reverse time, he would. He says just tell me what to do. He says they threw him out of his dorm and he doesn’t have shit. He says it’s just you and me then says come out please.
He yells – you come out and talk to me. He screams her name even louder. No result. He throws his beer bottle against the side of the house and staggers away. The Gallaghers sit down to dinner and Frank and Queenie are being gross and making out.
Fiona asks them to stop – they don’t – it gets worse. Fiona asks if she can spend the night at his place and he says just move in. She says okay. Sean says thank you for the edible food, but we’re going. Queenie says they’re always welcome.
Fiona says she knows because it’s her house. Fiona tells Liam to come with her but he says no, he wants Debbie. Fiona says fine and she and Sean leave. Caleb tells Ian he’s bad ass for handling his family. Ian says compared to his family, they’re light weights.
