Storyline

The Roses' peace and quiet at the motel is interrupted in the middle of the night by a new guest who has moved in next door. They will learn that that guest is Roland, who is trying to hide the fact that he and Jocelyn have had a major fight, he lamenting in a loud and specific way of his grief. Roland and Jocelyn's problems lead directly and indirectly to Johnny and Moira facing the state of their own marriage, as they deal individually with Roland and Jocelyn. This situation makes Alexis think about moving out on her own, which she believes she now can do since she is earning an income. She has found in the classifieds what she believes is a potential apartment in Schitt's Creek. That apartment could end up being another point of contention between the siblings. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Moira Rose: [reading magazine] Oh there's a woman in here who couldn't afford a Persian rug, so she painted one on her tiled floor. The magazine is celebrating her ingenuity.
Johnny Rose: Well, sounds like a creative solution.
Moira Rose: A creative solution would be a lobotomy to make one forget they liked nice things.
