Bill comes home to find Barb doing homework at the kitchen table and the stove cold, meaning no dinner. Pouting, he pours himself a bowl of cereal and grumps, "You can't turn my wives against me." Without bothering to look up, Barb says, "Don't assume I have any idea what your other wives are up to." Bill shoots back, "Don't assume you got 'em wrapped around your thumb." Yeah, he realizes immediately that he's already fucked up. Barb stands up and calls to Margene through the window, ignoring Bill's request to lay off her. "If one of your wives is unhappy, we're all unhappy," Barb says. Especially if that wife is Barb. Margene comes in all innocent-like, and Barb tells her, "Give it up. He told me." Bill denies it. Nicki comes in too, and Bill asks her if she's in on this. She and Barb pretend not to be colluding, until Barb angrily changes the subject: "Bill! I started with seven nights. Then down to three and a half. Now it's two and change. I'm not going down a minute farther." Margene points out that that's not going to work when there's a fourth wife. Wrong thing to say, and now Bill's in even bigger trouble than he was before. Barb says any fourth wife is going to be sleeping in the basement rather than getting any of Barb's nights. Bill asks what Barb's saying about the future of the family, and Barb says she's drawing a line. Even Nicki thinks Barb is going too far now, and Bill protests, "You can't dictate to me!" He again demands a night off, and Barb says if that's how he wants it, he can continue to sleep in the basement. Bill says fine. "On my nights, too?" Margene asks. Bill high-handedly tells her to talk to Barb about it, which loses him his one ally in this. Idiot. "Wow," Margene says. "You sold me out and now you're cutting me off. Have fun in your basement." "She's right," Barb snaps. "Go to your room." Trapped, Bill looks around at the unsympathetic faces surrounding him. He gathers up his milk, cereal bowl, and spoon, and retreats to his cave. "If I catch anyone down there, they're dead," Barb threatens her co-wives. Margene looks unhappy, and Nicki looks smug. As usual.
