Stephanie changes her attitude when Danny tells Stephanie that Gia and the two 16-year-old boys have been in a traffic accident, and Gia will be spending the night under observation in the hospital. Danny also explains that the two boys are alive, but one of them suffered a broken leg and some severe cuts. Meanwhile, Michelle is dismayed by the fact that the adults have become obsessed with her video game system.

Over time, the three men as well as the children bond and become closer to one another.
