Episode Summary

EDIT
When Good Families go Bad
AIRED:
Mel struggles to bring the whole family together for a "surprise" 17th birthday party for Paige. This is particularly challenging when it comes to convincing Leslie to be in the same room as Doug. Paige asks Mel for a specific present - permission to have sex at home - and spends the day making it hard for grandfather Doug to win her over. They eventually bond before the end of the party. While the party's a success on some levels, it also brings nasty conflicts and uncomfortable truths to the surface. Leslie's given pills by Finn that make her manic. She and Doug war over the dinner table, and Doug reveals a nasty streak of homophobia to Glenn. Paige and Josh fall out over his tacky lingerie present that he gives her, and after a day's agonising Glenn gives Paige an expensive gift - a motor scooter - that has disastrous consequences. Kathryn agrees to meet Peter's parents, only to find out she already knows his step-mother Sarah in the Biblical sense. She tries to keep this secret from Peter while fending off renewed advances from Sarah, but the truth outs at Paige's birthday party. Meanwhile Paige and Del's involvement in a protest against battery farming results in Man Alive being over-run by a horde of panicked chickens...moreless
