Disturbed by their lack of social skills, Della forces the kids to mercy-attend their sad uncle Natie's birthday party to engage in some interaction with some of their peers.

Germaine learns that Cathy and Lee are now an item and stumbles upon a novel and highly inappropriate way to view their burgeoning relationship. Cynical Della is reminded why the outside world can be fun when she meets a kindred spirit, who proves a useful ally when the party takes a turn for the emotional.

Aretha also makes a connection, though Germaine immediately exploits her sister's rare display of human emotion, forcing Aretha to take counter measures. Socially anxious Yoko, meanwhile, battles both her shyness and a mythological beast, whilst Grampy holds the fort at home with MasterChef and an unimpressed Mariah.
