1923-2004
It is a typical Sunday morning at Fisher & Diaz Funeral Home, Claire is putting the moves on her new lover Edie, Ruth is pressuring George to go to Catholic mass, Nate goes for a jog and all is well until David announces "that death spared L.A., there are no bodies in the prep room". David & Ruth then leave for church and an older gentleman pulls in, soon after he has a heart attack and dies.
Federico still asleep at Sophia's from the evening before is awoken by his flame, Sophia and tells him that he needs to go home. He asks if he can stay because he was thrown out of his house, however she says that her relatives stay at her apartment. Soon after, Sophia is confronted by Vanessa and her sister and a fight pursues. Then, Sophia breaks up with Rico. Rico with no place to go ends up at the Fishers where Ruth welcomes him in with open arms.
Ruth however, is extremely upset at the fact that George is focusing a lot of time on other things but not on her. Such include debating with Claire's friend Anita and "murdering" or pruning her favorite tree in her garden.
Brenda checks in with Nate and wants to do something with Nate who is busy getting ready to go to an amusement park with Maya. She tags along and soon the two get cozy. Joe then walks in and like Sophia breaks up with Brenda.
David still recovering from Post-Traumatic stress welcomes a familiar face from the past, Sarge (his and Keith's paintball buddy) into his home. After an afternoon of sex, Sarge decides he's tired and goes home, David becomes angered and demands that he stays however David is soon pushed to the floor.
