Shawn sets up a candlelit dinner after hours for him and Belle. When Belle arrives, Shawn declares that he arranged this celebration because he found them a new place to live. Belle is excited until Shawn reveals that the new place is living above the Brady Pub rent free while he volunteers as the pubs night manager. Belle calls it the worst idea Shawns ever had. Shawn justifies the move by pointing out how the combined earnings of his garage salary and tips at the pub will help them buy a real house soon. Belle complains that living above a bar is essentially the same situation as Tinda Lau. Shawn balks and Belle admits that its not exactly the same.

Stephanie, now slightly calmer, complains that Jeremy doesnt pay attention to her unless he wants sex.
