The episode begins and Hank after going through Becca’s book tells her that he didn’t like it. He suggests that she start writing a new one, and forget about this one, which really disappoints her. Charlie pays Marcy a visit and asks her why she isn’t returning his calls and she says she can’t see him anymore, just then Ophelia comes out and is really hostile towards Charlie and even slaps him. Ophelia then takes Marcy inside and slams the door on Charlie’s face. Hank finishes writing the musical and hands it to Charlie, who is eager to send Atticus and Stu a copy. ..
