In the morning, a freshly-showered Ava comes downstairs to find a large, hulking man of color looking for something in her kitchen, and she smartly sneaks back up the stairs to alert her parents and call the police - oh, wait, no, she actually picks up a kitchen knife and tells him to get out of her house, like, the guy's twice your size, honey. Your Bayonne blood isn't going to make up for over a hundred pounds disadvantage. Patrick comes "whoa, whoa, whoa"-ing down the stairs and tells her Ed's going to be staying with them for a couple days, to which she predictably, snottily, and justifiably thanks him for the notice. She hustles back upstairs, ignoring Theresa on her way, and then Daniella appears for an introduction, with Patrick adding that Katie's away on a Girl Scout retreat. Ed babbles about having been an Eagle Scout before asking Patrick when he first went in the ring, and as Patrick recalls, he was about seven, and they had a thing where he would box his father every Friday night, and the first time he knocked him down, he got to sign up for the Golden Gloves. "My dad did it with his dad too." Great, a history of the Leary men beating each other senseless. No wonder this family's so shitty with money - they've gotten hit in the head too many times to do simple math. Anyway, Patrick finally took Stacy Keach down when he was twelve, and he deems that one of the happiest moments of his life, which even he seems to realize is a little sad. Ed tells Patrick he's going to need to speak to his father that morning...
