When Susan gets pulled over for blowing a stop sign, the cop lets her off with a warning once he learns she’s heading to her dialysis appointment. Susan later plays the bad kidney card at the supermarket so that the other shoppers will let her cut in line. Her dialysis story even gets her out of jury duty.
Renee says, “Susan, using your disease to manipulate and deceive people? I’ve never felt closer to you.” The two of them decide to use this new evil power to score lunch reservations at a snazzy restaurant. But another customer calls them out and they are both sent to the back of the line. Moments later, Susan collapses to the floor. She no longer needs a table at the restaurant. Now she needs an ambulance.
As part of her therapy, Gaby takes a trip back to her hometown to read a letter to her dead stepfather at his grave. She hasn’t been home in some time, so Gaby is a little surprised to see that she’s considered a celebrity in this small town. Pictures from her modeling days are all over the wall of the local diner. There’s even a nacho platter named after her! The principal at her old school wants her to speak to his students. Suddenly this trip back home doesn’t seem so bad.
