It’s tradition – Fiona reminds him that it is also tradition that the father pays for the wedding, Frank says that won’t be a problem and he will come up with the cash. Then, he takes Liam and says that they are going to school. Instead he takes him to the street corner and makes up a sign, begging for money. He tells the strangers that Liam is an orphan and have AIDS.
Debbie tries to go to school too – but her teachers wont let her in to class with a screaming baby. Debbie whines that she wants to learn, and begs to pick up her assignments.

Lester the Immigration officer shows up at V and Kevin’s house bright and early to see if V and Svetlana’s marriage is the real deal. Kevin is irritated, and goes to the bar. He is jealous of his wife’s fake wife. At the bar Deb shows up, she explains to Lip that she and Frances got kicked out of school. She whines that it is discrimination.

Kevin heads home from work and V has bad news – the Immigration agent is not buying their happy marriage story. She needs Kevin to sleep on the couch, so that she and Svetlana can sleep together.

At the Alibi, V and Svetlana have sex again when there aren’t any customers. Later, V comes clean to Kevin and tells him that she has been sleeping with Svetlana.
