In Aria's room, mostly-forgotten Mike watches her put on eyeliner and asks how she doesn't poke her own eye out. He wants to know if she's noticed their parents acting weird around each other. She shrugs it off, then he makes fun of her for only doing one of her eyes. I refuse to believe that he'd notice.
Downstairs, Holly Marie Mom and Chad Dad are bickering about who should take mostly-forgotten Mike to some sort of practice. Oh, he can get there the way he normally does when you pretend he doesn't exist. Chad Dad says that maybe they should see a therapist to work out their issues; she thinks they should talk things out at home. At this point Mike walks past them and to school -- see, he can get around just fine without either of them. Chad Dad wants to know what he can do to make things better. He offers to move out, but she thinks this will only make the kids more confused and make her look like the bad guy. He says they are already acting like sulky roommates, and considers that worse for the kids. Aria hears them bickering, and goes into the midst of them. When dad takes off, Aria tells Holly Marie Mom that Mike knows something's up and she should tell him soon, since keeping this secret for a year nearly killed her. Holly Marie Mom tells her to hold the phone. She knew for a year? Aria thought that Chad Dad told her that he asked Aria to keep things mum. Clearly, that's not the case. Aria offers to stay and talk, but HMM brushes her off.
