In the sixth season-opener, the good reverend's (Eric Camden) stress level rises when he learns that Matt has lost his job at the hospital and is relying on his friends to find him new work. Meanwhile, Simon is adding to Eric's tensions by pressuring him to let him get his learner's permit. At the same time, Lucy breaks off her engagement to Jeremy and just cries in her room and refuses to discuss what happened in New York between her and Jeremy. Even lodger Robbie, still longing for Mary, is moping around the house when she returns to New York to be with Wilson. Lastly, Annie's behavior has Eric wondering what's going on with her, while she is overcome by hormonal changes and suspects she's pregnant--- but later finds out it's menopause.
