Dave is now emotionally committed to his birth-mother Chel and throws a grand birthday party for her. Hastily bought oysters mean food poisoning for Ben and Mel, but that's easily forgotten when she accepts his standing marriage proposal. Jake drops by, refuses to join the party but accepts to talk again to Rachel after she eats humble pie with his mother, while his handicapped brother Alex is delighted with a shop sales clerk position. Chel leaves her 'own' party after Rachel spots injection marks all over his arm, which she later explains stem from a 23 year old HIV therapy. Carbo's chaperoning excess costs Artie another dream date, country musician Gavin, so she decides to travel with bar colleague Lexie.- Written by KGF Vissers
