The house-mate the boys take in is the very nurse, who David felt humiliated by after an overdoses of Viagra to celebrate his re-won freedom. Then things go really wrong: Ron Barrett's firm, where the parents work, downsizes: Dave is kept only half-time. Rachel flees back home, being domestically abused.

Meanwhile only Ben can look out for sister Rachel, who's moved back home, fleeing abusive alcoholic husband Daniel. Daniel warns her he won't let her go - Rachel hits the bottle herself. Ben ends up abused by both feminists as somehow Neanderthal misogynist for barking off a gay pass in a bar, and by his mother, as if he's still not responsible despite doing everything possible.
