AIRED:
Present: Tillie Sims arrives for a visit and once again puts her son in jeopardy when a loan shark follows her from Florida looking for the money she owes him, prompting M.E. to give Tillie an ultimatum; worried that April's incoherent behavior means that she has a substance abuse problem, Rene forces her to take a drug test, which turns out negative; when April begins to exhibit delusional behavior, Rene gets Mrs. Samuels' permission to take her to a doctor.

      • Rene: (during the march) My feet are sore, I'm getting blisters.
        Elston: Rene, shut up.
        Rene: My legs.
        Sara: What's the matter with your legs?
        Rene: (sees a fellow marcher hobble by on crutches) Nothing.

      • M.E.: There's a tornado heading this way by 2 o'clock and hiding in the basement won't help!
        Rene: A tornado?
        M.E.: By the name of Tillie Sims.
        Rene: Oh boy.
        M.E.: I think what you mean is 'Dear Lord, please deliver me from this earth by 2 o'clock'.

      • Tillie: You never saw his father drunk.
        M.E.: What does that have to do with anything? And now that you mention it, I did see him drunk, I saw him hit Colliar too! The only thing I didn't see was YOU there.

      • M.E.: A couple of months ago Colliar and I were behind on our payments, and I had to go down and pay in person, and they didn't break my nose for paying what I owed them, so try again.

      • Colliar: How much do you owe, Mom? Ten thousand? Twenty thousand? They kill people for less than that!

      • Rene: What are you doing here?
        M.E.: Hiding out, plotting murder, the usual.

      • Colliar: "You're in trouble Mom, and I'll be damned if I'm going to wake up in bed next to a horse's head." This is an obvious reference to the 1972 movie "The Godfather" based on Mario Puzo's bestseller.
