Pilar Sandoval attempts to Rollerblade a steep hill while walking her dogs but literally doesn't make it when she loses control and is hit by a car. Brenda is upset with Nate's fists-up attitude toward the daughter they'll have, and is suspicious that his latest wish to attend Quaker meetings is simply to join Maggie. David, Nate, and Rico try but fail to agree on how to invest on the business, but it gives Rico a good opportunity to focus on pursuing his relationship with Vanessa. Ruth's babysitting experience with Durrel and Anthony goes sour when they don't return from playing basketball until Durrell drives the SUV home, and, only after David blames Ruth, is learned to have done it before. Later Durrell threatens Keith during a confrontation over it, and David learns from Anthony that he doesn't get they won't won't have to eventually leave.

In the first scene, with the "death of the week", the girl in roller blades is hit and killed by a car. The stunt woman, in the sequence of the hitting, is clearly not wearing roller blades, but simple sneakers. That's because performing such a stunt wearing roller blades should be extremely dangerous, even for the most skilled of stunt people, but nonetheless it's a bit too evident. See more »

While walking with her rollerblade in a steep hill with her three dogs, the Latin Pilar Sandoval is hit by a car. In the Fisher & Diaz, David proposes the investment in a crematory, but Rico disagrees. Brenda goes with Jackie to Dr. Melnick's office to be submitted to an ultrasonographic examination, and she tells Jackie that Nate is very distant of the baby. Further, that he had suggested her to go with him to a Quaker church for meditation instead of to a counselor. After the examination, she refuses again the amniocentesis. Claire meets Anita by chance and is invited to go to an arts exhibition. She dates with Ted and meets her former friends from the art school. Keith is threatened by Durrell with a knife, and Anthony tells him later that Durrell is having much fun as possible before returning to the adoption agency, like the other foster parents have done. The dysfunctional Ruth dates the hairdresser Hiram. Rico has a serious conversation with Vanessa about their relationship. Nate visits Maggie before going to the church and they have one night stand. Later Nate feels his arm dumb and faints.

The great connection of Nate and Maggie turns into physical, and they have intercourse. His wasted relationship with constant fights with Brenda seems to have leaded them to the end of their marriage. Rico and David have opposite views regarding investments in their business, and Rico believes he is the responsible for the Latin community that uses their services. Claire is getting closer to Ted and to a different way of life, and her artist friends seem to belong to another lifetime. Keith realizes how needy Durrell is and changes his attitudes with the boy. Ruth is completely confused and lost, blaming her husband and lovers. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Canto a Celebração da Vida" ("Sing to the Celebration of Life")
