At Shelia’s, Jamie is crying and Chody tells Sheila that he has to go to work. Sheila tells him that they have the first baby appointment for the vaccinations. Frank comes in and tells them that he will do the grocery shopping and doctor visit for them. Chody reluctantly agrees and Sheila thanks Frank for his time with a hug. She gives him money and address to the doctor. Veronica comes in the house and asks where Kev’s wife, Cheryl is and he says that she is asleep. Veronica says that she doesn’t believe her when she said that her car broke down. Veronica doesn’t like the situation. Cheryl comes downstairs in a skimpy outfit with her son following behind.
