Gila Monster
Robson Arms' new owners, Chuck and Trixie Hoskins, hold a meet and greet courtyard party for all the tenants. The Hoskins are Texans recently transplanted from the Mexican desert where they were conferring with a Shamin. They're a little eccentric - they own a sensory deprivation tank - and overly friendly. For some tenants, they are just a little too friendly. But the building is still a business, more so Trixie's vision. One of the first orders of business they have with Yuri, who they have kept on as superintendent, is to evict a tenant behind on rent: Bobbi. Going...

Positivity
What came first: Sault's negative attitude or her string of very bad luck in Vancouver? Specifically on the work front, she has lost one contract after another to her arch rival, Richard, or Dick as she calls him.

In general, Geoff thinks her negativity came first, and he convinces her to accompany him to a positive thinking seminar. After attending, Sault thinks it's a load of rubbish. Trixie also attended the seminar and uses the positive thinking message to her ...

I Pagliacci
Stanley and Geoff make some compromises in their social life, each committing to do activities the other enjoys. Of late, Geoff has been spending much "mentoring" time with newly out of the closet ex-Robson Arms tenant, Andrew Colton, which has made Stanley slightly jealous and somewhat suspicious. But he doesn't worry about Geoff and Andrew for the time being as he is looking forward to a visit from Toronto by his ex-wife, Frances. Frances is a smart, beautiful woman who has much more socially in common with Stanley than Geoff has with Stanley. Stanley would probably...

Baby? What Baby?
Sault, aka Annabelle Bonaduce, is running out of ideas for her magazine column. The only one of the many hair-brained ideas that Sault came up with that was approved by Charlotte, her editor, was an exposé on a gay wedding, Stanley and Geoff's wedding to be more precise. Sault, as Geoff's maid of honour, is reluctant to tell her "bride" of this news. When she eventually does, Geoff flatly refuses. One would think that Stanley would reject the idea as well, but when he hears about the possible free swag associated to spruce up their otherwise sparse festivities... ...

Providing some brotherly Kukoc advice, Val tells Yuri that Kukoc men make terrible fathers and that he should keep his distance for Bobbi and Robbie's sakes. In a moment of drunkenness, Val kind of lets slip to Bobbi that he knows who Robbie's father is. Bobbi finally ...
