Storyline

Buoyed by an excellent economics test, Joan decides to help her Mom with the church's clothing drive. When she finds some high end donations, Judith suggests they sell the items instead of giving them to the church. At first, they do so and buy more items with the money, but when Joan decides that Adam could free up some time if he had a laptop that Friedman is selling, she keeps some of the money. Helen purchases one of the items and is accused of having stolen it from the clothing drive. Kevin decides to try doing comedy at an open mic night after he bumps into Beth and learns she's dating a lawyer who does stand-up comedy. Luke tries to get Grace to go to a support group for teens whose parents are alcoholics. Written by Horomnizon
