Next morning, Dexter wakes up with the sun on his face and a vagina on his cheek. Gonna be a good day! Lila says, "Do you want to know how I got into the program? I'd used for years. Binge, crash. Thought I had it under control. Then I met Marco." Yeah, that should have been a red flag in and of itself. "What a shit. Thought he was my boyfriend, but he turned out to be my dealer. Bastard had me so strung out by the time he left, nothing mattered. Nothing was left but rage. One night, I was so fucked up, I went to his house and I burned it to the ground. What I didn't know was that Marco was passed out inside. They blamed the fire on his drugs, but it was me. He died because of me. That night I went to my first meeting. Seeing that side of myself was terrifying, that I could possibly do that to another person." "Did he deserve it?" asks Dex. "Yes," she answers. Dexter takes his face out of her vadge and turns to look at her. They share a moment. "Then you didn't do anything wrong."
Over at Rita's, Dexter walks in as she's serving breakfast. "Hey, you!" "I wasn't expecting you this early!" she says, clearly happy to see him. "I didn't hit any traffic." She hands him a plate with some eggs and toast on it. "Where's your mom?" he asks guardedly. "I doubt she'll be joining us," she says. "She's been in her room all morning. My guess is she's packing." Reading her loud and clear, Dexter offers to leave, but Rita tells him to sit down and eat. "You're staying right here because you're a part of this family," she insists. Dex pauses, then says, "Are you sure? I've put you through so much lately." Rita just kisses him, and tells him she's there for him, no matter what. As she nuzzles him, Dex notices something on the top of her boob. "What's this?" he asks. "The patch," she says sheepishly. "I have some quitting of my own to do. Now, sit!" Dexter does as he's told, and he gets a text message just as Mama enters the kitchen. "Anything important?" asks Rita. The text is from Lila, and it reads, "When's the next road trip?" Couldn't help but notice his phone is from Boost Mobile, which is also what they use on Weeds. Guess Showtime's got a deal with them or some shit. Anyway, Mama comes in with her coffee, and cheerily says "Morning!" to Rita and Dexter. "Hi," says Dexter, not knowing how to act. "So, Rita assures me that you're committed to getting better." "I am," he says with a smile. "Then I want to be here to help. In fact, I've decided to stay in Miami. I emailed the school board my letter of resignation this morning." Dude, you really didn't have to... "What about your house?" asks Rita, unsure how she should feel about this. Mama says she'll put it on the market. "Sweetie, I thought about what you said last night. I haven't been here for you, and I want to change that." Dexter and Rita share a glance, and Dexter offers to help her look for an apartment, since looking on Deb's behalf has practically made him an expert. "Oh, don't be silly, I'll be living here!" says Mama. Oh, boy. She asks Dex to pass the cream without a second's hesitation, and he does so.
