Episode information Edit
Marie asks Debra to return a canister she borrowed, but Debra says she already returned it. They argue and Debra eventually convinces Marie that she is wrong. Marie apologizes to Debra, which astonishes Ray. Debra feels good that she finally got through to Marie but soon learns that the canister was in fact never returned; the kids had it. She tries to sneak it into Marie's house, but gets caught. Frank takes the canister, lying that he hid it to save her. When Debra confronts him about this, he admits to her that she is like a daughter to him, and doesn't like Marie's behavior to her. He also recalls that she is always mad with him, proven right when Marie yells at him, finding the ham in the fridge eaten.
