Episode Summary

EDIT
Robert Duane Wething

1958-2004

Nate, Maya and Brenda go to Idaho to inter Lisa's cremains. Brenda stays at the motel, but the Idaho relatives discover the rebound relationship because of a chance encounter at a local diner. Then, the Idahoans get evidence that the cremains are not Lisa's.

David wants to have a commitment ceremony and adopt a child, after attending a friend's ceremony. Keith does not.

Ruth comes home. George is glad. Ruth sets conditions (George must be open about his life; he must accept his children into his life). George agrees, begrudgingly.

Claire is really into drugs. Russell surprises Claire by sleeping on her floor while she is still out partying; he's there when she returns. Claire dances crazily at a rave; she makes a play for Edie, the lesbian performance artist, who angrily tells Claire to get out of her life, and leaves.

Rico tries to reconcile with Vanessa, and comes home to be with the kids. Vanessa has started looking foxy, and Rico notices. Turns out, she's seeing a guy who Rico knew in high school. Rico tells her not to allow that guy in when the kids are home. Vanessa demands that Rico hand over his keys to the house, or else she will change the locks. Vanessa asserts that they are "separated," but Rico objects.

Death of the week: a drunken dad. Mom, rather than help dad, kicks him while he's face down in the mud. The kids look on. Before the funeral, mommy dearest yells at her kids for crying over their dead dad. David tries to intervene, but mom scolds him, tells him to mind his own business.moreless
