Episode Summary

EDIT
Denise and Martin prepare to drive to Rhode Island to check out the house where they will be living on the naval base. Clair notices that Denise seems troubled. She confesses that she forgot to call the base and confirm the housing arrangement while Martin was away at sea. Clair encourages Denise to tell Martin the truth immediately, but she is too afraid. She does not tell him until they are called before the head of the base, causing Martin to look like a fool in front of the captain. They have to go back on the waiting list, and must make other arrangements for six months. He feels bad about continuing to impose on Cliff. They cannot stay with Martin's parents because his mother thinks that Denise is a flake. Cliff spends time with Olivia while Martin and Denise are away. She offers her theory about the origin of babies. When Denise and Martin return, he takes the blame for the housing snafu. Clair suspects that Denise screwed up on purpose because she was worried about having to care for Olivia on her own and wanted her family nearby. Clair tells Denise that she must eventually learn to take responsibility for her family; but assures her that she can always call on Clair for help.moreless
