Storyline

Frank has a check-up with his uptight doctor, Bianca, who's cracking up after getting a terminal cancer diagnosis. Discovering she hasn't truly 'lived,' he agrees to be her tour guide to the seedier side of life. Meanwhile, Fiona preps an uncooperative Carl for his sentencing hearing. Plus, Lip sleeps with a professor on the assumption he's only days away from being kicked out, Ian realizes it's time to get back on his meds and Kev finds himself enjoying college life as campus 'rapewalker.'

My favorite episode of the series. Truly encompasses the spirit of the show
16 February 2017 | by gdn-3See all my reviews

I think this may be the episode I show people if I ever want to hook them on Shameless. I cracked up laughing at least 5 times this episode and the dynamic between Frank and Bianca is just perfect.

I've heard nothing but bad things about seasons 5 and 6, and I'll be the first to admit that the first half of season 5 was slow to get going, but this episode alone has completely reinvigorated me to tear through the rest of the series.
