Phil tells Ed that the Kings are insisting on a roast. Ed doesn't believe it. Phil wonders what he has to gain by lying. Ed reminds Phil that he's the one who wants to do the roast in the first place, but Phil doesn't understand. Ed finally gives up and tells Phil just to do the roast, but try not to kill anyone. Phil thanks Ed, and promises that he won't regret it. After Phil runs off, Kate walks in and tells Ed that there is poetry in the way he sprays the rental shoes with disinfectant. Ed acts pissy. Kate tells Ed to come with her, and Ed reluctantly agrees.
Kate greets some guy named George with a hug. Kate introduces Ed, who knows George from when he used to work at the dry cleaner's. George has a new job now. Kate asks how George is feeling. George is feeling great, and says that Kate saved his life. Kate asks George to tell Ed what happened. George says that the insurance company refused to pay for his liver transplant, because he worked with a dry cleaning chemical that was known to cause liver damage. Ed asks if George did use the chemical. George says that he hadn't used it in twenty years. Kate explains that the insurance company said that George had a pre-existing condition. George says that he'd be dead right now if Kate hadn't convinced them to pay. George excuses himself. Ed says that he can see why Kate would want to help a guy like that, and it's all the more reason to turn herself in. Ed points out that Kate is proud of what she did, and he'll help her go to court and tell the world. Kate doesn't want to go to jail. Ed says that she won't, because it's her first offense and she didn't profit personally. She'll get probation and community service. Kate agrees to do it.
Mike is lying on the couch when Nancy walks in. She says that her day was "a total disaster." Mike wonders what kind of disaster she means. Nancy rants that she doesn't know how Carol and Molly say the same things all day long. She hated doing it, and the kids knew she hated it, and it was a vicious cycle. While saying this, Nancy props her leg up on the chair and unzips her boots. Man, Uncle Bob is so sorry that he missed this one. Nancy asks Mike what she's going to do. Mike thinks that teaching may not be for her. Nancy complains that everyone in the family has something exciting ahead of them (Mike with his new practice, Sarah with potty training), but she's just stagnating. Mike says that she tried something, and it didn't work, so she'll try something else. Nancy continues to argue that she's stagnating. Mike hugs her and says she's a nut case, but he loves her. Nancy adds, "A stagnating nut case."
