Brown House. Delia, Ephram, and Madison Poppins return from the miniature golf. Treat's waiting for them. He tells Ephram he needs to talk to him, and asks Madison to take Delia upstairs to get her ready for bed. Treat starts in on Ephram about talking to Nina about her divorce. They immediately start yelling at each other. Big fight, blah blah. And then! Madison "Know-It-All" Poppins rushes down the stairs and tells them both to just stop it. She says that she can't believe they go on like this when Delia is upstairs, hearing every word they say. She totally pulls the "I'm not finished!" card, and says that Treat and Ephram are so wrapped up in their own lives that nobody's worried about poor Delia. She says she can pick up all their slack, but at the end of the day, Delia is still their daughter and sister, and if they don't get right, Delia is going to rebel. Oh, is she? Wait, do you really think so? Will it be next week? Madison tells Treat that he was totally wrong to tell Ephram about Nina, and that Ephram needs to grow up and write his damn paper instead of whining about it. She leaves. I still hate her, but she's right. The Brown boys are duly chastened, and stare at the door as she walks through it, reminding them that she'll be back tomorrow.
Brown House, again. Treat and Ephram are talking about how much they hate Madison. Treat says he's going to fire her like she's never been fired. Uh oh. Delia walks in. She tells them that Madison is her best friend, which is kind of weird, but whatever. She says that if they fire her, she won't speak to either of them, ever again. She goes upstairs to bed. Ephram asks Treat if Delia is bluffing. Treat says he doesn't want to find out. Oh, you know you will next week, boys.
Nina's House. Treat brings her some more baked goods. He says he made them himself, and apologizes. Nina says she's sorry, too, but that she's freaking out right now. Treat says he should have realized that, but got all caught up in his own self and fixing everyone else. They make up. Nina tries a cookie. They're horrible. They're totally going to do it soon.
High school. Ephram finds Amy at her locker, and asks her what she wrote her paper on. Amy freaks out, saying she totally forgot about it. In classic Ephram style, he gives Amy his own paper. He says he can write another one during his free period. Quit giving that girl stuff, dude! Amy thanks him and hugs him, saying she won't forget this.
