  • In a previous episode Benny said Luisa was dead however she is alive in this episode. It is possible due to Benny's hatred to Luisa, she lied. This episode reveals George was given away to another family at birth however was returned to Benny.


Angie (to George after he found out Benny tried to give him away): Honey, you know how much I love you, but I have to say, your life is really jacked up.
Angie (to George): This is your chance to be the bigger person.
George: I don't wanna be the bigger person! I wanna be small and mean like the scorpion. I'll be like that. (mimics a scorpion's pincers). I'll get you all distracted by my pincers. Oh, but she forgot about my tail! WAAPAHH! (mimics a scorpion stinging)
Angie: Don't you realize you're consumed by your own anger? And when you sting her, your tail is gonna fall off and you'll die!
George: That's a bee! You don't know nothing! I win.
Angie (to George): I hope what you just found out isn't going to affect your testimony.
George: Just a little at the end. "I don't think my mom should go to jail for an old robbery when her real crime... is giving away her only son! I HATE HER, I HATE HER SO MUCH! Thank you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury."
George: My mother may have made some mistakes, but when someone like that raises you, what do you expect? She doesn't deserve to be punished, for a stupid decision she made a long time ago. She's never committed another crime, she's worked at the same job for 30 years. So I'm asking you as her son, don't send my mom to prison.
Benny (to George): The family returned you after a week for a puppy instead. They offered me money but that wasn't what it was about. I was 16 and scared and I wanted you to have the best.
George: Then why didn't you do any of the things you told the other family to do?
Benny: I didn't think I could. You saw my mother. Showing care for somebody else isn't something I learned from her.
Luisa: Nice to meet you, George. (To Benny) And I guess I'll see you at your next trial.
Benny: Not if I see you at your funeral first.
Luisa: I've outlived your father and your brother. We'll see who's next.
