Ben and Darlene bring Harris and Mark to see the apartment they plan to rent. The kids are less than thrilled. The last time they tried this it never happened because Darlene slept with David and she and Ben broke up.
Louise tells Darlene about Dan losing the house. She wants to use the money she and Ben planned to rent the new apartment with and put it towards the house. Ben doesn’t want to live in to her father’s house. He points out that Dan’s money problems most likely won’t end here.
Darlene offers to sell her car and get a second job to help. Dan says no. Ben then says that it’s not all on Darlene, that they’re in this together. Darlene says she and Ben can take over the payments on the house. Dan says he won’t let the bank or his kids take his house. Darlene worries that his stubbornness will mean he’d rather lose the house than accept their help.
