Chandler James Swanson dives too sharply into his pool and drowns...and leaves his family not with the multi-million-dollar pyramid scheme business they thought he had, but a mountain of debt. Nathaniel's will gives Ruth all his money, Claire an unwanted trust fund, and David and Nate the funeral business. Nate tries to give it to David or Ruth, but neither will take it, so he's glad to get Matthew Gilardi's offer to join Kroehner, but first has to convince David. With their client having too little money to even buy the $9000 casket already ordered and David and Rico unavailable, Nate decides to help her out by temporarily using the coffin at Swanson's funeral, then cheaply cremating him and selling the casket to another client...before learning he can neither reuse nor resell it legally.

Trivia

The death erection shown when Nate and Frederico pick up the body from the morgue circumvented HBO's standards and practices. HBO prohibited showing a male in an aroused state, so an actor with a penile pump was used. The actor pumped his gentile to an erect state before filming. At no time was the actor aroused during the scene. See more »
