Hunter gives his daughter an air condition as a gift for her apartment only to meet an early flame of his who is his daughter's roommate. Norris is actually being paid to paint a painting at a rock star's bathroom, but later destroying the artwork with Hunter and Ford because of a bounced check. Ford helps Suzanne out at the scotch tasting wearing a scotsman's outfit and kilt, albeit drinking is not Ford's forté. Suzanne has finally moved out all of Ford's belongings and tells him she is sponsoring a scotch tasting session with a world renown Scotch Master who speaks gibberish. Chloe discovers her father, Hunter, and her roommate were an item and moves out of the apartment.
