Episode Summary

EDIT
Family Is Family
AIRED:
Present: Rene and Sara prepare for the Jackson family reunion while Bill is away camping with his kids. On their way to the reunion, Sara collapses and is rushed to the hospital. When Elston arrives at the hospital, he introduces Rene to Mark, his partner of 12 years, and their son, Victor. Elston reveals that Victor is his biological son, conceived with the help of a surrogate mother who later sued for custody. Rene is upset that Elston didn't tell her about Victor and that he didn't consult her about his legal problems. The tension between the siblings escalates when Mark, who's a doctor, disagrees with the way Sara's doctor is treating her diabetes. Rene and Elston finally have a heart-to-heart talk, which leads to Elston opening up about his life to his mother. Sara is resistant at first, but relents when she meets her grandson for the first time. Over Colliar's objections, M.E. decides to look for a job to help make ends meet. After she lands a job as a security guard, he ends up giving her his support when he realizes that it's a low-key assignment, and one that allows her to work on her writing while working the night shift. Past: M.E. and Rene buy firecrackers despite their parents' objections. They accidentally start a fire, but don't confess to their mistake, even after the townspeople mistakenly assume that the incident was racially motivated.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When M.E., Rene, Colliar, and Tully are at the fireworks stand, Tully takes TNT snaps and a box of matches out of his pocket, lights the snaps, and then throws them at Rene's feet. Snaps are just meant to be thrown on the ground to explode. Lighting the tips doesn't do anything.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Young Rene: You're not getting fireworks M.E.
        Young M.E.: Why not? It's patriotic. (singing) And the rockets red with glare, the bombs bursting in air.
        Young Rene: M.E., you heard my daddy.
        Young M.E.: Come on Rene, you can test your civil rights and see if the man lets you buy something from his stand.
        (the girls approach the firework stand)
        Young Rene: Are you sure this is testing civil rights?
        Young M.E.: Sure.
        Firework seller: What can I get you?
        Young Rene: I can't decide.
        Firework seller: Well hurry up.
        Young Tully: Why don't you get some pretty sparklers?
        Young M.E.: I don't want no stupid sparklers.
        Young Colliar: Roman candles are pretty good.
        Young M.E.: Roman candles are for wimps, I know what I want, cherry bombs and bottle rockets.
        Young Rene: M.E., my daddy said no.
        Young M.E.: Well my daddy didn't.
