Hunter wants to be more of a dad to Chloe, and, so, he sets up a surprise birthday party for her. However, he ends up being hurt because Chloe does not see eye-to-eye about celebrating her birthday. Because he needs a job, Norris ends up helping Suzanne at a local art gallery, where his idol, Sven Jorgensen, is holding his art. What he doesn't know is that he has to babysit the artist instead. In the end of all of this, he does end up selling one of his paintings for fifty-grand, but does not get the credit for it. Ford tries to help out the difficult tension between Hunter and Chloe. Suzanne uses Norris to help her out in the art gallery to take care of the crazy artist, Sven Jorgensen. In order to keep him from leaving, she promised him that he could have one painting on the wall admist Sven's masterpieces. Chloe does not like birthdays and has an argument with Hunter over it. She does rise to an epiphany when Ford comes a-calling explaining to her how Hunter is, and later settles her feud with Hunter.
