Episode Summary

Pride and Prejudice
Ron Taylor, who works at a publishing house, is stuck in a job he hates and has a pregnant teenage daughter who won't give up her child so that she can continue her studies, preferring instead to live with her boyfriend in his mother's garage. Ron blames this on his wife, Tammy, who he thinks should have stayed at home with Caitlin when she was a baby rather than continue her career.

Shortly thereafter, Ron breaks his neck and dies when he slips on the book Pride and Prejudice. Judge Othniel sees that Ron is serious in his regrets and sends him back as a handy-man. It doesn't take long for Handy Randy to try to persuade Tammy to be a stay-at-home mom. Later, when Ron picks up Caitlin at Tammy's work, he sees how much she loves her job and how good she is at it, causing him to change the plan he had when he first came back.moreless
