Frances' worst nightmare has come true... she's once again living under the same roof as her mother. With the tuna for sale on ebay, Frances hopes it won't be long before they can afford to send chain-smoking Pearl back to Gentle Pines.
Pearl's nursing home, Gentle Pines, is hounding Frances for payment - money Frances doesn't have. But if she doesn't pay up, Pearl will end up living at the O'Brien house. Terry desperately seeks a buyer for the tonnes of tuna stocked up in their garage.
