Life Unexpected: Home Inspected

A social worker visits Cate and Baze in order to decide whether or not they are fit parents. Lux is faced with a dilemma when her boyfriend, Bug, and best friend, Natasha, both think that Cate and Baze won't be around permanently and that it would be best for Lux to return to her life in the foster care system. Meanwhile, the radio station pressures Cate to deny she has a daughter in order to save her job.

Episode Quotes
Natasha: Did you tell the judge about our plan?
Lux: For us to get emancipated and move in with our boyfriends? No, I didn't mention that.
Bug: Living with two high-school dropouts probably wouldn't have helped your case much.
Gavin: Hey, speak for yourself. I'm gainfully employed, okay?
Lux: Oh yeah? What's the 401k plan at Voodoo Doughnuts?
Gavin: You know what? If your fancy new parents pay for you to go to college, you should major in bitch.

Ryan: (about Baze) You know, I still cannot believe you had sex with him. Not that I'm judging. I mean you, you should have seen the first girl I had sex with. Man. Jersey shore, underneath the pier. She had bangs up to here and she had these huge --
Cate: Ryan!

Cate: Look at this place!
Baze: Oh, you know what? It didn't seem to bother you the other night.
Cate: Don't!
Baze: I'm guessing you didn't mention to your fiancée what happened between us.
Cate: The only thing between us is the lingering smell of your Axe Body Spray.

Cate: (to Baze) Do you have any idea how important this inspection is? Take the lotion off the nightstand, fix the smoke alarm, find a place for Lux to sleep. You know, just do whatever you need to do. We can't lose her because the social worker sees that you have the parental skills of a banana.

Ryan: You know, I still can't get over that hair.
Cate: I know, it's like my hairdresser is psychic. She knew that I got a kid, she made me a soccer mom.
Ryan: A hot soccer mom.
Cate: Hot, but dumb.

Lux: My room is amazing. But who are the Spin Doctors?
Cate: Um ... they, uh, they provided the soundtrack of your conception.
Lux: Hmm.
Cate: Sorry for putting that image in your head.

Math: So, what now? She's just gonna go back to foster care? That's it?
Baze: Dude, I feel bad enough without you making it worse.
Math: You have no clue how freakin' lucky you are. You have this amazing daughter. You're now forever linked to the most amazing woman on the planet.
Baze: Ah, timeout here. Are we talking about the same Cate?
Math: Everything isn't a joke, okay? It's one thing to make Cate deal with it when you were sixteen. But it's freakin' pathetic that at thirty-two, you'd make her do it alone all over again. Look around, Baze. No one's laughing but you.
