Episode Recap

Tina's rebellious 16-year-old daughter Shannon is moving in with her creepy, older boyfriend, and her mother has given up trying to stop her. After all, Shannon is a teenager and "she knows everything." When Kim runs into Shannon in a liquor store, she tries to be helpful, buying her condoms and telling her to call if she needs anything. Shannon does more than call — she arrives at Kim and Louie's front door after her boyfriend kicks her out (he's going back to his wife). When Tina refuses to come get her ("she knew the deal"), Kim tells Shannon she can stay as long as she needs to. Convinced that all the girl needs is a little direction, she encourages her to take an art class at the local college. But when Shannon offers to "blow" Louie, he's not so sure about Kim's strategy. "No one wants to blow you," Kim laughs. "That's the only way she knows how to be nice to people."

The next day Shannon offers to babysit for Lucy, and Kim sees progress...until she and Louie return home to a party Shannon's throwing for her art class, Lucy retrieving beer for an underage student. Kim and Louie finally bring Shannon back to Tina and Mike's, but Kim can't leave before telling the teen about her own troubled past, which included a few skeevie older guys and an abortion. She finally got her act together and met Louie, who worked two jobs so she could finish nursing school. Still smarting, Shannon sums up Kim's lesson: "F**k young guys and don't get pregnant." "Close enough," Kim responds.
