Storyline

Rob, initially puzzled by Laura's sudden coldness towards him, returns from running into a number of their friends having after-dinner coffee. He finally figures out her chilly demeanor stems from his picking up the check for the entire dinner. Rob refuses to change his behavior and claims he will continue to pay for dinner checks when they're out with friends - until he sees a reflection of his behavior in the actions of his son, Ritchie.
