Over at David and Keith's, Anthony's crying because Durrell has already broken their new PlayStation by opening up the case. This is why people with kids should keep their screwdrivers locked up. And, ideally, Durrell. As Keith comes in, Durrell says, "It wouldn't let me get to level two so I had to fix it." Yeah, he fixed it good. There's nothing on the TV screen but static. Kid's lucky he didn't electrocute himself, cracking it open when it was plugged in like that. "What the hell did you do, Durrell?" Keith grits, and Durrell stands up and yells, "It broke! Okay? I broke it! Why did you have to buy us a present that you knew was gonna break?" There's just so much wrong with that question, and life is so short. Keith yells at Durrell for opening the machine: "I'd have gotten it fixed had you only waited." "Why does everything always have to get ruined?" Anthony complains, and Keith looks sympathetic at that until Durrell kicks the remains of the console and gets up in Keith's face, saying, "Everything was already ruined from the time we had to move into this stupid gay house!" Ooh, that's torn it. Keith tells Durrell he's going to his room, and grabs the kid by the arm to drag him away. Anthony, acting out of loyalty to the brother who's probably the one always ruining everything, leaps at Keith, yelling, "Let go of him! I hate you!" Of course, this seething mass of angry humanity is what David comes home to. "What the hell is going on?" David demands as Keith throws the kids into their bedroom and holds the door shut. "You're locking them in a room?" David asks in horror. "More violence, that's what you want to show them here?" "Discipline and violence are not the same thing," Keith says. The kids are still pulling and beating on the door, yelling homophobic epithets at Keith. David says Keith is insane right now. "Let go of the door or I'll tell DCFS!" Durrell yells. And here's where Keith crosses the line, I think. He yells, "You think anybody over there gives a shit about you?" Way to play on what I'm sure are already some severe abandonment issues. Then he lets go of the doorknob. The kids go flying back into the room as the door opens. "You did that to yourselves," he yells at them. David looks horrified and sickened. And he doesn't even know yet that he's going to have to go right back out and buy another PlayStation.
