Sam makes a house call to see Abe (guest star Paul Dooley), a curmudgeonly old man who refuses to take care of himself even though he has a nasty cough. He’s driving his daughter, Lisa, up a wall. Abe’s caregiver, Simone, has been taking advantage of him. She lets him eat bad food and drink booze at will while she makes personal use of all his credit cards.
Sam confronts Simone about her less-than-stellar caregiver ways. The girl knows that Abe will never press charges against her regarding her liberal use of his credit cards. After all, she’s the only thing that’s made him happy since his wife passed away. Truth be told, Abe knows Simone is taking advantage of him. But it’s better than being a burden on Lisa. Sam convinces father and daughter to meet. Eventually, Abe agrees to let Lisa help him after all those years he took care of her.
