Recap

The scene opens with everyone asleep besides Fiona. She gets up and goes downstairs to find Veronica awake. She tells Veronica to go talk to talk to Kev. She tells Fiona that the house is quiet. Fiona screams out that Breakfast is ready. She tells Veronica that the house is not quiet, Kev is married to Veronica and that she needs to talk to him. 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. She tells him that she loves Kevie-Caff coffee. Half de-caff and half regular. Veronica is not a fan. Cheryl and Kev reminisce of old times and Veronica seems left out of the conversation. ..
