Episode Summary

EDIT
French Fried
AIRED:

Michael is growing tired of David's paying for everything. It reaches a breaking point when he learns that David is not cashing the checks for his share of the monthly expenses. When his homeroom teacher ignores the bullying and name-calling that Chris and his friends are directing at Justin and another student they think is gay, he curses out the teacher and draws a suspension. Melanie goes to the house to try reconciling with Lindsay, only to find a strange Frenchman living there who won't even let her in to see Gus. Debbie counsels Justin on dealing with homophobia at school. David agrees they will only do things both he and Michael can afford, even if that means canceling the surprise trip to Paris he'd planned for them. Both Melanie and Brian want an explanation from Lindsay, who tells them that Guillaume is a friend and colleague who has moved in to help with expenses and to help take care of Gus. She announces that she and Guillaume are getting married, an arrangement that will keep him in the country and with her and Gus. Ted and Emmett convince Michael he's being selfish for letting his pride get in the way of letting David do the things that make him happy, like the trip to Paris. Mr. Dixon puts a stop to Daphne and Justin's first meeting of the gay-straight student alliance. Michael agrees to go to Paris. Justin is so incensed to see Chris and his friends on Liberty Street that he announces to everyone within earshot that Chris is a homophobe and bully, and then outs him over the hand job he gave him in the equipment room. Brian congratulates Justin on making a real enemy.
