You Can't Miss the Bear


Episode Info

Nancy's (Mary-Louise Parker) PTA proposal to remove sodas from the school's vending machines and replace them with bottled water and fruit juice is shot down by Celia (Elizabeth Perkins), who insists that preteens who are watching their weight have access to diet soda. Nancy overhears her fellow moms gossiping about her finances, and later visits her suppliers and learns about Heylia's (Tonye Patano) uncanny ability to eyeball an ounce. Conrad (Romany Malco) lets Nancy know that their relationship could be more than just business, if she wanted. Nancy's problems with her budding business include a customer, Doug (Kevin Nealon), who is also her accountant and a member of the city council, and is a bit too public about his fondness for her product. Doug's teen son Josh (Justin Chatwin of War of the Worlds) is a fellow dealer, and when Nancy helps him out when his supplier is out of town, she asks him to follow two simple rules: "Stay away from my customer base" and "Don't deal to kids." Josh agrees, but Nancy later hears that a ten year-old at Shane's (Alexander Gould) school has been busted. At home, Celia's daughter Quinn (Haley Hudson) has been spending a lot of time with Silas (Hunter Parrish), but Nancy is still a little taken aback when the teens ask her for permission to have sex in her home. Celia makes her own counter-plea to Nancy, admitting that she reads Quinn's diary. Meanwhile, Shane plots revenge against a bully (Adam Taylor Gordon) mean enough to mock his fatherless status.
