When we return, Joe doesn't like being called the meanest brother ever. This is because, in his own words, he is an angel from God. See, just when you think one of them is rational. Richie, who is really the one coming through like a wise being in this episode, tells Melissa his theory that Joe and Teresa should go to therapy. Melissa has never heard of a brother and sister going to therapy, and Richie wonders what she has to hear about it -- they can be the first. Which, they won't be, because it's totally a good idea. Melissa just does not want them to make up. There's more fighting, this time about whether Joe has been trashing Juicy for eleven years. We are reminded of how Juicy texted Joe threatening to break his jaw if he came to Teresa's book singing, thus proving that if Joe has indeed been trashing him, it's all valid. Joe claims that he hasn't been trashing Juicy, which begs the question of why not. Eventually, Teresa says that she's over it, and Joe calls her a bitch and something else in Italian, and they both storm off in different directions, cursing all the while. Teresa announces that she's leaving, and Melissa tells Joe that it's time to give up. For all of our sakes, PLEASE GIVE UP. And bring Dina back! We demand a new and more interesting feud! And also Grandma Wrinkles!
Next week: Tug of war! Field day! Gia is a nightmare, and tension brews between Teresa and Jacqueline.
