Sitting around the warmth of a campfire, the Dullards discuss the meeting with the lawyer. They ask Ryan what were the lawyer’s concerns and he tells them that it’s the living situation for Maci. That’s funny, because I’m pretty sure you brought that one up, Ryan. They ask if that still bothers him and he says that if he can stop it, he’d like to do that. That just sounds like you trying to punish Maci. Dalis asks what would happen if they wanted to live together and his parents ask why they’d want to do that. Dalis says that they love each other, but I don’t know how anyone could love Ryan other than how you love a stupid, cross-eyed dog. Dalis points out that his only goal seems to be to make Maci’s life miserable, which will only lead her to make his life miserable. Wow, for such a shit stirrer she really seems to have a head on her shoulders.
Ryan’s dad, usually the more level-headed of the bunch who constantly gets steamrolled by his obnoxious wife, wants Ryan to realize that if he’s going to force Maci to follow a bunch of rules and guidelines, he’s going to have to do the same.
How long can this possibly last?
Why do they feel the need to discuss this stuff in front of Benny?
It’s the morning of the court hearing, so Amber is hanging out in bed with Mike. Amber tells us that she no longer trusts Gary, so she’s planning to fight for her rights today. Gary calls to tell her what’s going to happen today in court so she’s not surprised. He tells her that everything he said about her not being able to see Leah was just him being an angry orange troll. He just doesn’t want Amber to have strange men around his daughter. They say they’ll cross that bridge when they get there.
They both show up to court in their lounging wear, which really shows that they understand the gravity of the situation. Gary, meanwhile, is sporting some major ta-tas.
How the hell is he packing bigger tits than me?
Amber’s normal friend Sara shows up to find out what happened in court today. They have dropped the no-contact order and Gary will be her primary caregiver, which probably means that he’ll get to dictate where Leah goes. Amber tells Sara that her family is telling her that she’s just giving her daughter away, which doesn’t make Amber cry but does make Sara cry. Could Sara possibly be Leah’s mom instead? That would probably work out in everyone’s favor.
Farrah and Sophia are leaving for Florida today. Debra thanks Farrah for letting her keep her for a month and asks when they’ll come back to see them. Debra suggests they come home for Christmas, but Farrah immediately rejects that idea and says that they will not be coming back and forth that much. Nice.
