Nick Sharpe asks Cate to find the last article Paul wrote so the newspaper can publish it in his memory.
Cate and the kids rely on the message Paul is sending them: no matter what happens, family bonds are never broken.
But he's happy when Cate tells him because the coach was impressed at his request to work out with the team, he's now officially on it. Cate's mother visits, and manages to get along well with Jim.
Bridget and Kerry plan to sneak out to a party instead of staying with the family.
It's been two weeks since Paul died, and the kids are going back to school for the first time.
Bridget jumps right back into her social circle and begins planning the upcoming dance while Kerry refuses to allow herself to feel anything but sad (which is made worse when Kyle declares his love for her) and Cate's attempts to make them feel better only backfire.Meanwhile, there are reports of eggings and toilet-paperings all over the neighborhood.
