Karen asks Katherine if she's been able to find anything out about Dave. Katherine tells her she doesn't have enough information to narrow her search.

She tells him to part with it so they can park at least one car in their two car garage. Dave sees Tom's bass guitar and asks if he still plays. Tom says he used to, but not anymore. Dave tells him he plays the drums and asks him to come over later to jam and Tom says yes.
Dave comes over to jam with Tom and Lynette walks in. Tom excitedly tells her that they're going to put together a garage band with Mike on guitar and Orson on keyboards. He tells her that he only need weekends to practice and maybe play a few bars. Lynette reminds Tom that he doesn't have time and he said he wanted to spend more time with the family. Tom starts to cave, but Dave nudges him to not give in.
