Storyline

Nate meets a divorced mom with a tot the same age as Maya and they soon arrange for a play-date for the kids - which turns out to be quite playful for them as well.

She's convinced she knows who is sent it. Sophia has Rico wrapped around her little finger and he agrees to pay for her new boob job. Claire is surprised when she learns that Edie is a lesbian. Joe tells Brenda he wants to spice up their sex with a little role play. Written by garykmcd

Burning What Was Left From the Past
15 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While making a prank through the telephone, the fourteen years old Kaitlin Elise Stalte falls off her bed and dies. Rico teaches Arthur how to embalming, while David buys a new suit for him. Meanwhile, George receives a beautiful package with feces boxes. Ruth blames Arthur of sending excrement because of his harm feelings; he becomes upset, quits his job and leaves the house, leaving David and Rico alone. Sophia manipulates the silly Rico, trying to get a new surgery on her breasts. Claire goes to a party with Anita, and finds that Edie is lesbian. Nate, with a weird behavior, is having an affair with the mother of one of Maya's friends. Brenda was hoping to have normal sex with Joe, but the guy wants kinky bad sex. Keith is the bodyguard of the star Celeste. Claire convinces her family to burn what was left after a garage sale.

In this episode, Arthur feels offended by Ruth and leaves his job and lodging in the Fisher & Diaz. Brenda sees how difficult is to find a mate with the same sexual expectations. Nate is completely disturbed and the naive Rico is easily manipulated by the stripper Infinity. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Brincadeira Paralela" ("Parallel Prank")
