Californication: Rock And A Hard Place

Charlie gets fired after losing Robbie Mack as a client, leading he and Hank to pursue the previously offered musical project with Atticus Fetch. Atticus will only work with them if they can retrieve a guitar belonging to an old friend. With a little help from Faith, they set out to accomplish their mission. Also, Marcy punishes Stu, on the advice of man-hater Ophelia Roberts.
