Shameless: There's the Rub

Fiona's decisions involving Robbie have great consequences. Frank and Sammi continue to try to cure his liver, even recruiting the help of Sheila's boyfriend to build a sweat lodge to rid his body of toxins. When Lip gets a visit at college from the military police, he tries to track Ian down with Debbie's help; desperate for money as his business is hurting from the construction outside the Alibi Room, Kevin partners up with Mickey.
