Irv finds himself in a slump when it comes to the music business, and Deb, his wife is seeing a therapist.
Angie receives a sex talk from Irv, then he talks to her boyfriend in a man-to-man chat.
During therapy, Deb comes to the realization that there is a need for boundaries concerning her relationship with Irv.
Deb believes it is time to put in force some "new boundaries." She informs Irv that he will be taking the kids to his place this weekend so that she can be alone with Angie. But even though the weekends went well for both groups, she can tell it will be hard to get Irv to change as he comes back and settles right into Deb's home.
Angie is offered a fashion internship. Newz tells Irv that if his hip hop career does not take off, he'll go back to the streets.
Deb appears on the Gayle King Show live on radio and has an feeling of confidence. But when she arrives home she discovers that Irv and his crew were listening at the office. One single mother at his office explained how good Deb has it, which raised all the insecurities and feelings of blame that Deb felt when she and Irv broke up come flooding back. While at Deb's home, things come to a boil when Irv snaps after Deb peaked at his Blackberry, causing her to throw it and irv out of her home.
The argument from the night before has Deb declaring she needs some time away from Irv, while Irv comes to the conclusion that working in the studio and fatherhood is more difficult than he thought.
There is still tension in the air between Irv and Deb as he returns the kids from a weekend away. But Irv has no time to talk about their earlier argument since he needs to head to Atlanta to mix a record with Lloyd. Deb warns him to return in time for JJ's birthday. But after starting the record, Lloyd insists that he stays and finishes the tracks, but Irv won't let his son down.
