Episode Summary

EDIT
Dixie Chicken
AIRED:
Anne is visited by her ex-boyfriend from her college years, Brian McGinn, a man who left her for her best friend. Brian is divorced now, as is Anne, and they find they have much in common. Anne allows herself to be open to a romance, but when an intimate moment almost leads to a kiss, Brian pulls away. In the end, Brian visits Anne to confess that he has AIDS and is just trying to visit everyone from his past that he loved and put things right, and that he must move on. Kay is being mentored in her real estate career by Joanne, a driven and successful realtor. Kay is shocked when Joanne lies to potential house-buyers to get them to raise their bid by $7500. Kay confesses her shock to her husband Sam, who tells her such behavior is "just business," and that Joanna didn't force the people to buy. Kay also admits that she feels out of her league against Joanne, who drives a Mercedes to show her clients around. Sam approaches his father Joe for a raise so that he can buy Kay a better car. Joe refuses the raise until Sam's annual review six months later, but Sam finds a way to buy a shocked Kay a BMW. Lindley is a successful businessperson, working for her father Joe in his factory, but she feels she's missing too much of her infant daughter's life. When a business-related task forces her to miss baby Ruthie's first time crawling, she talks to her husband Jim about quitting her job and becoming a stay at home mom.moreless
