Frank says that it is not long enough for the city pool and that there are black kids who are going to try to drown her and she needs to be able o hold it for 90 seconds. Carl sees this and asks if he can try. Frank tells him that he can’t because he has Cancer. At Mandy’s house, Mandy and Lip are getting busy when the phone rings. The machine gets it and it is a little girl on the phone named Molly. She asks for her dad to come and get her because her mom died. Mandy says that Molly is her half-sister.
