<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
The scene opens with Patrick holding a service for Aunt Ginger. He says that she was happiest on her corner and that is where her ashes are going to lie. Frank tells Carl that Ginger was a prostitute despite her old age and that she was the best. Patrick dumps her ashes in the street and concludes the service. Fiona and Lip ask Patrick about the house and how it is odd that Ginger signed the house over to Patrick, who she hated. Patrick says that they will talk about this tomorrow. Lip is not happy of what Fiona or he is going to have to tell the others about the house. Carol comes over to Kev and Veronica’s and Kev says that she is looking nice.
Carol tells Veronica that she is ovulating now. Veronica says that it is not for another 4 days, but Carol suggests that they try now. Kev tells Veronica that he pictures her face when having sex with Carol and Carol says that she pictures Denzel Washington or Johnny Depp. Back at the house, Frank says that it is funny that they have tried to kick him out and now no one can live there. Fiona and the rest of the Gallaghers sit down and discuss their options. They can either prove the Will is a fake, say Ginger was crazy, convince Patrick to back off or kill him. Frank says that there is no point fighting this and says that they should take the copper pipes. Lip says that he will buff up on probate law.
Fiona tells Jimmy that she wants normal people problems and Jimmy says that it will all work out in the end. He says that he is with her. Lip is trying to study up and Mandy offers to give him a hummer. He agrees, but is interrupted when Ian comes to the door. He tells him that this better be important. Lip goes outside to find Karen there. He tells her that he is with Mandy and that it is alright. He is clearly upset with her being there. Karen says that she was going to go to Paris with a guy, but he robbed her instead. She says that it is good to see him. He walks away. Back inside the house, Jimmy is trying to look at the Wanted Ads and Fiona tells him that the Cleaning Posse has two openings because a slaughterhouse got flooded and it $14.50 an hour. At Sheila’s house, Sheila tells Karen that it is great to have her back.
She says that she wishes that she could have seen Hymee in the crib. Sheila says that there is a support group for parents with children of Down syndrome and suggests that they go. Frank wakes up from his drunken stupor and says that is horrible. Chody comes in and sees Karen without her pants. He says that he is in recovery. Frank tells Chody that he needs a plate. Sheila tells Frank that with the baby gone and Karen back, they have a full house. Frank says that he can’t be homeless again. He says that he is going to Alcoholics Anonymous and Shelia says that is because the Court is making him.

He tells Fiona that the probate hearing is Thursday and that they are going to need to be out by Saturday.

At the AA meeting, Frank asks the instructor to sign off on his sheet and she tells him that it will be good to have him twice a week for 6 months. Frank goes to sample the food there when a man named Christopher comes up and tells him that he likes how Frank has been sober for 2 years.

He readily accepts. Back at the Slaughterhouse, Jimmy quits because he can’t take it anymore.
