Vanessa sits on the couch at home with her sister, who apparently got a part in a sitcom pilot, which they're watching now. Since we can't see any of it, we're left to wonder if Angelica is playing the wacky sister on a Latino show or the wacky Latina neighbor on an Anglo show. I'm sure she's plenty wacky either way. Vanessa checks her watch and says she has to go to the airport soon to pick up the babysitter. Wow, Julio's reputation for being a bad seed has traveled fast if his mom needs to fly someone in. "Au pair," Angelica corrects, which Vanessa says is "too bourgie," so Angelica amends it to "nanny." "This is L.A. Everyone has live-in help," Angelica claims, and asks if Vanessa's mad that she can't help as much any more. Vanessa is supportive, but Angelica says she doesn't want it to be weird for Vanessa, having a stranger in the house, "especially from Saskatchewan. Where is Saskatchewan, anyway?" "Near Calgary, I think," Vanessa says. "To tell you the truth, she can have horns and weigh 300 pounds for all I care. As long as she brings in the water bottles I just need an adult." Well, at least with Rico gone she has one less kid.
Ruth comes into the Fisher house to the sound of sobbing, and to find a crying Sarah crashed on the living room sofa. With her hiking-booted feet up on the upholstery, no less. I'm surprised we don't get two deaths this episode. Sarah tearfully gives Ruth the news about Fiona. "I know you hated her for what she did to Nate, but we've lost her. She's gone." And Sarah curls up disconsolately in Ruth's lap. Ruth looks momentarily upset at having to deal with yet another person who needs her, until a light bulb goes off over her head. An evil light bulb.
Cut to Ruth on the phone in the kitchen a few minutes later, telling George about Fiona's death. "I'm just sick about it," she lies. "Fiona was a very close friend of mine. Very close." George offers to come over. Ruth declines, saying Sarah's in shock. "It's not a pretty scene down here. I think it's only appropriate for family. Of origin." Nice. Right then, of course, Sarah sits up and cries, "People! I need people! Who can we call?" "What did she say?" asks George, and Ruth says Sarah's "jabbering" and "incoherent," and hangs up as fast as she can. Sarah calls for her phone book. As Ruth heads off to get it out of Sarah's bag, Sarah says, "I need to circle the wagons."
Well, Sarah's got one friend in the house already, but of course she's on Rico's table so she's no help to anyone. Down in the Body Shop, David's just gotten a call telling him Durrell pulled a fire alarm at school and now David has to go see the principal. Did anyone bother to ask if there was a fire? Durrell might have saved lives! Probably not, though. "I can't tell Keith," David says. "He's just looking for more proof that these kids are too messed up for us." "You want to keep them?" Rico asks. David says he'd keep Anthony in a heartbeat, although Durrell's a mess. "But what can you expect? Their dad basically abandoned them." Rico looks away at that, and David apologizes. Rico says he's found his own place, a two-bedroom so the kids can stay overnight. He looks forward to mornings with the boys, and David says he hopes Rico gets the place, if that's what he wants. Rico says, "What I want is to be back home, but I have to take in the reality that it's not going to happen." Which means it's totally going to happen.
